Conclusion Based On Findings:  Haunted

 

Private Residence, Keeler Court, San Jose, CA

Investigation: February 2, 2013

   
  California Paranormal Research conducted a paranormal investigation of a private residence located on Keeler Court, San Jose, on February 2, 2013.

The claims of paranormal activity in this location are:

  • Apparition of an elderly man
  • Apparition of a young woman
  • Dark mists, dark mass, shadow figures
  • Dog growls at "nothing"
  • Whispering and unintelligible words
  • Weird smells in the upstairs hallway
  • Playing cards folded up in front of two witnesses
  • Pipes in the wall rattle for no reason and stopped when told to do so
  • Several sightings of the family dog, which has passed on

A lot of the activity seems to center on the upstairs hallway and storage closet.  The storage closet had a cross carved out of the carpet when the family moved into the home.  Another odd thing about a closet in this house is the closet space under the stairwell.  The walls are covered with drawings and crayon marks as if from a child, and the door had a lock on it that would only serve to keep someone from getting out.

We set up the DVR camera system as well as three full spectrum high definition camcorders, and audio recorders to monitor all areas.  We then spent the evening attempting to make contact with whoever may be there through EVP sessions.

Observations and Results:

There were a variety of personal experiences during the investigation:

Danielle experienced an unpleasant phantom smell of strong body odor in the upstairs hallway.

We observed a lot of shadows and odd peripheral glimpses of lights and movement from the living room towards both the upstairs hallway and kitchen.

Nicki said she felt like something laid across her legs in the son's room while sitting on the bed.

At one point in the living room, Chuck felt like he'd walked into a cold spot, almost chilly like ice.  A few minutes later it wasn’t there.

From the living room, it did sound like we could hear whispered conversation at several times, but we weren't able to locate their source.

Nicki had a problem with her camera at one point, says it was “closing” on its own.

We didn't capture anything paranormal on any of the video.  Audio analysis resulted in a bunch of EVPs, which are listed below.  In some cases, the same EVP was recorded on several devices at the same time, so are listed with matching colored cells in the table as well.

Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs):
These are clips from unfiltered, unaltered audio files and slight filtered copies used to clarify what is being said.  However the filtered/altered files are not considered "evidence" in themselves, they are for analysis only, and presented here for that purpose.  EVPs tend to be rather soft voices and oddly modulated, so it helps to use good quality headphones, a higher volume and play the file several times.

  EVP Scale Meaning
  +++ excellent EVP quality
  ++ good, easily understood
  not bad, understandable
  - so-so, understandable but not easily
  -- weak modulation or higher noise, hard to understand
  --- probably an EVP, but very hard to make out, if at all

Conclusion:

The voice quality of many of these EVPs isn't great, but a voice can be heard.  Others are very clear and easy to understand.  From the recorded EVPs, the fact that they appear to be highly interactive and aware of our presence, we conclude the residence to be Haunted by at least one Intelligent Spirit (i.e. Ghost).

We will almost certainly be returning to this location in the near future, to see if any further information can be obtained.
