Case #010 – Private Residence

Date:  Aug. 30, 2014

Location: Private Residence

Claims:  objects being moved/thrown, pictures being turned down/turned around, animals acting fearful for no reason, sounds of a ball being bounced off a wall, hearing feet shuffling in the hall, feeling watched, hearing growling beside bed, mimicking of clients’ voices, clients hearing their names being called

Investigators:  Holly and Christine

This is an active case we have been monitoring since our first investigation in 2013.

The area on which the property sits has a rich history involving one of the early, prominent families of Calgary.  We have found no information indicating deaths in the home, but we have learned that the land on which the home is built, as well as a sizeable area of the surrounding land, may have been used as burial ground by the Blackfoot and other Indian tribes.  We are currently working on obtaining more information on that.  We believe that if the land did serve as burial ground, that could explain the ongoing activity in our clients’ home.

In the interests of reducing the risk of noise contamination, the clients volunteered to take their three dogs and leave their home for the night.  The tenant in the basement apartment also volunteered to leave for the evening for the same reason.

The investigation began on the main floor.  Before it began, all windows were closed and locked to reduce the sounds of outside street traffic.  The investigators spent a minimum of 20 minutes in each area of the residence, covering the living room, the “Panda Room” (the spare room), the back room, and the master bedroom.  During the investigation in the “Panda Room”, Holly saw two very large lights appear on the curtain covering the wall between the bed and the bottom of the window sill.  She described the lights as being “like lights from a large flashlight”.  Though she was sitting in a chair right next to the bed, Christine did not see the lights.  This event occurred twice.  Efforts to duplicate and explain the appearance of the lights were unsuccessful.  The lights did not reappear after the second incident.

During the investigation time in the “Panda Room”, both investigators noted that the outside traffic was unusually loud – as though the window was open. Having checked more than once that all the windows were closed and locked before beginning the investigation, both investigators knew the window could not be open.  When a bus went by, however, the sound was so loud that they decided to check the window yet again, to confirm that it was closed.  To their surprise, they found the window wide open.

To date, no explanation for this event has been found.  The clients had already left the home when Holly and Christine went through each room – including the bathroom – to close and lock the windows before starting the investigation.  After completing the task, they went through the entire home again, to make sure all the windows were closed and locked.  How the window in that room got unlocked and then opened when no one was in there remains a mystery.

The investigation of the main floor yielded some interesting results ranging from hearing what sounded like knocking, to feelings of being watched.  Several times, the investigators heard what sounded like shuffling in the hall between the kitchen and the Panda and master bedrooms.  Some sound and vocal anomalies were also captured.

The investigation of the basement apartment was shorter, as the investigators discovered a multitude of spider webs – several of which contained living spiders.  The claims of being touched were subsequently attributed to old webbing the investigators found dangling from the ceilings.  The claims of hearing odd noises were also debunked; the investigators found evidence of mice, as well as a detached ceiling fixture that allows mice to get between the floors.

Conclusion

This location continues to be monitored.  We are continuing our search for more information about the land surrounding the home and hope to find an explanation for the unusual events being experienced by our clients.  We extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to our clients for their ongoing trust and support as we all work together to help them find answers.

May Update

Hello and good day. We need to bring you up to speed on what’s happening and how things are going.

We’ve been busy with investigations, data analysis and review, working with clients, and trying to get videos finished.  We encountered some major issues with the video program, and then, that issue got resolved and work on the videos continued.  The program was recently upgraded, and now it’s not synching audio with video – and no solution can be found to correct the problem.  So, we’ve had to do a roll-back to a different program and start the video-making process all over.  It’s important to us that we bring you, the viewer, an experience that not only engages you from the beginning to the end of the movie, but which also looks professional.

We are working to get our backlog cleared up.  It’s just taking longer than we expected.

In other news, due to time constraints and very busy schedules, Tim and Kierra are no longer part of the Wolf Paranormal family.  We wish them both well, and we hope that wherever their paths lead them, they will be happy and successful.

At this time, we are not looking for new team members, and we are not accepting membership applications.  We appreciate your interest in wanting to be part of this awesome team, and if or when we do decide to start looking again, we’ll be sure to let you know.

As always, we want you to know that we appreciate your continued support and encouragement.  We hope you’ll continue to stick with us as we strive to bring you the results of our efforts. Have a great weekend, and to all the moms, soon-to-be moms, surrogate moms, adoptive moms, and all the women out there who are mother figures in the lives of children, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

April Update

Good day, everyone!  Since our last posting, we’ve conducted two investigations at private residences – one out of town, and one locally.  We’ve also had at least one opportunity to do some canine research work with Glimmer.  Weather and health issues ended up interfering with further outings, but those things are resolving quickly, and we expect those outings to become more frequent.

The Okanagan chapter of our team is working on setting up their first investigation.  Robyn has worked hard to put the word out about the team to her community; though it was slow to come at first, response to her efforts has now provided her and her team with several potential locations to consider.  We’re very excited for her and her team to take on their first case and we’re looking forward to hearing about their experiences and findings.

Regarding our canine detection research, we know that it’s difficult for people who don’t know Glimmer to recognize unusual behavioral responses.  This has been an ongoing concern since our visit to the Cat & Fiddle Pub as a news story for CTV News.  Glimmer’s responses to that location were completely uncharacteristic, but because the reporter didn’t know her normal behavior, he didn’t recognize that, and her responses were – albeit unintentionally – misrepresented.  So, we’re going to be changing the way we present our videos of these testing sessions to include Glimmer’s normal behaviors in different situations.  Our hope is that this will facilitate a better understanding of her, and perhaps, easier recognition of unusual responses to stimuli we don’t see or hear.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been following us on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and all the other sites we’re part of.  We really do appreciate your support.  Have a great day and a great weekend!
