Conclusion Based On Findings:  Haunted

  Private Residence, Milpitas, CA

Investigation: April 12, 2014

California Paranormal Research conducted a paranormal investigation at a private residence in Milpitas, California, on April 12th 2014.

The owner of the residence had recently lost her husband.  Since his death, strange things have been occurring, making her believe the spirit of her husband may be trying to draw attention.

Reported occurrences at this location include:

  • Objects in the home have moved positions
  • She would smell her husband's cologne at times
  • She has felt something in bed with her, putting out heat
  • The dogs acted as if they were seeing something that she could not see
  • Hearing muffled voices, but no one around inside or out


A couple of odd things happened during this investigation:

  • When Chuck was measuring the EMF levels in the small den, near the shelf unit that has the husband's ashes, he felt a cobweb effect on my arm, as if being touched.

  • While we were in the Living Room, the drawer on the small end table opened up on its own.  Terri and I both noticed it after hearing a wooden taping sound over by it.  It seems someone opened the drawer and then made the tapping sound to draw attention to it.  We know for a fact the drawer was closed when we entered the room, thought we didn't see it physically opening at the time

  • Chuck, a known EMF Hypersensitive, had sudden EMF headaches in the den, living room and master bedroom concurrent with recorded EMF spikes on the meter he was holding.


Below are the resulting EVPs we obtained that evening.

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

From the recorded EVPs, and the fact they appear to be interactive and aware of our presence, we conclude the place to be Haunted by at least one Intelligent Spirit (i.e. Ghost).

Several the the EVP responses, like the reference to Blonde Bock beer, lead the client to more firmly believe the spirit is that of her deceased husband.

In further contact with the resident following the investigation, she told us that she feels much better about the activity, which is still occurring.  And that our investigation helped make a huge difference in her handling the loss of her husband.
