Date: Jan. 28, 2016, Case #001
Location: Private Residence, Kelowna, BC
Investigators: Robyn, Pat, Madison, Lisa
Case Status: closed
The investigators arrived at the client’s home at approximately 8:00 pm. The client remained at the premises and the downstairs tenants were home. The roommate had moved out at this time and her bedroom was more or less empty of possessions.
Investigators Madison and Lisa were introduced to the client. Then, a walk-through of the premises was conducted to familiarize them with the house. The team did not have access to investigate the basement apartment, but the tenants did give permission to set up a video camera in the area where a claim of an apparition was seen. After setting up the camera, the investigators headed back upstairs to begin the investigation.
As most claims were localized to the kitchen and roommate’s bedroom, the investigators concentrated their efforts in those locations. The client remained in the living room for the duration of the investigation. Robyn and Lisa went to the bedroom to conduct an evp session and tried to elicit a response on the EMF detector. Pat and Madison remained in the kitchen and conducted an evp session of their own. After about forty-five minutes, the two teams switched locations. Pat and Madison went to the bedroom while Robyn and Lisa went to the kitchen.
After completing these sessions, the investigators returned to the living room to discuss with the client whether the roommate’s moving out created any new experiences. At this time Pat and Lisa returned to the bedroom to conduct a spirit box session. The client stated that since the move things had been really quiet, other than one instance of noises at night. Another spirit box session was held in the living room at the request of the client.
The investigation was wrapped at 11:00 pm. At this time, both Robyn and Pat remarked that the location felt very different – it felt quiet and calm – from the preliminary investigation.
This home is very small, with paper-thin interior and exterior walls. Contamination from outside noise was also a problem. Careful review and analysis of all audio and video data yielded no evidence to validate the client’s claims, most of which seemed to be centered around the now-former roommate. The roommate recently lost her husband; the client has reported that since the roommate moved out, no further activity has occurred. Thus, it is our opinion that the roommate may have been unconsciously creating the occurrences as a means of coping with the tragic death of her husband. The client has validated this opinion, and thus, we have closed this case.
On behalf of the entire Okanagan team, we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to our client and to the downstairs tenants for their patience and hospitality.
