Conclusion Based On Findings:  Haunted

  Private Residence, Phinney Place, San Jose, CA

Investigation: January 9, 2010

 
 
California Paranormal Research conducted an investigation at a private residence in San Jose, California, on January 9th 2010.

The house is a two-story structure with 5-bedrooms upstairs, and a 3-room outside structure that serves as a pool room/tool room/bath.

The family has lived in this residence since 1991, and claim to have experienced numerous things over the past years.  The primary experiences being:

  • sightings of two young female apparitions at the top of the stairs
  • people hearing a girl ask their name
  • sightings of a male apparition in the garage
  • covers pulled off the beds at night
  • something jarring the sliding glass door off its track
    (next door neighbor also experiences this with their sliding glass door)
  • light switches being turned on
  • footsteps
  • a possible attempted "possession"

Four people currently live in the house (mother/father/son/daughter).  Three of the four will not stay in the house alone, especially downstairs.

A few houses away, two Native American Indian bodies were uncovered in the 90s along with artifacts while the neighbor was landscaping. A special archeological team came in and removed the remains.

There was also a small private plane crash in the same neighborhood in the 90s, where the two people aboard were killed. One of the persons was decapitated and his head was on the neighbors front steps. One of the trees where the propeller went into it is still there.

So, all in all, a place worthy of investigation.

Below are some samples of the evidence gathered from the investigation conducted that evening.

Observations:

  • EMF (electromagnetic field) readings over the entire property were relatively high, since the house is situated adjoining high tension power lines.
     
  • Several of our investigators were at the back of the property when they witnessed a bright white flash of light near the corner of the fence.  An immediate inspection of the area was unable to find the source of the flash or anything reflective.

Video:
We're not exactly sure what to make of a piece of video captured by Nicki using one of the IR based camcorders.  At first glace it appears to be a typical dust "orb", except for an unusual shape. And more interestingly, it appears to exit a door to the hallway and go around the doorframe, giving it size and distance from the camera lens:

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:

From the recorded EVPs, the fact that many appear to be interactive and aware of our presence, we conclude the place to be Haunted by two, if not more, Intelligent Spirits (i.e. Ghosts).
