It dawns on me, with as much talking and writing as I've done about the results of our paranormal investigation, that the one place I never talked about it was here, on the site designated for posts and stories about the house. Ummmm.....sorry about that! Rather that rewrite or copy and paste all the stories from the websites on which they were posted, I will provide you with a comprehensive list of links so that you can find everything about everything all in one place.
But first.......the verdict. After a wild and crazy and insanely spooky night, three teams of paranormal investigators and two local radio personalities all came to the same conclusion, the one I came to after less than a week of living in my country castle: MY HOUSE IS HAUNTED. Not just haunted, but EXTREMELY haunted. We don't just have a ghost, we have several spirits occupying multiple rooms in our house. The master bedroom, the basement....even our yard is haunted! Not only are the ghosts "intelligent" and able to communicate with the living by responding to questions asked and completing simple tasks (whistling, dropping things, etc.), but they communicate with each other, which, by all accounts, is extremely rare.
So, without further ado, here is the breakdown of our haunting, complete with photos and audio files: (Disclaimer- Stop reading now if you're home alone and get spooked easily!)
Here is my original blog post for Army Wife Network's Loving A Soldier blog, where I explain why I think our house is haunted, and what led to us being chosen for 97.5 FM's fourth annual paranormal investigation: Paranormal Activity: Army Edition.
After an absolutely insane night during the investigation, and a pretty spooky few days that followed, I wrote about what happened that night. Here is my personal take on the investigation after it was over, but before we got the "official findings" from the investigators: Others.
Even though I knew our house was haunted, I was absolutely not prepared for what the investigators found during their review of all of the information gathered during the "ghost hunt." Read about it here: Paranormal Activity: Army Edition- The Conclusion.
97.5's Josh Strickland wrote about the experience as well. Read his take on it here: Paranormal Investigation: The Shocking Conclusion.
One of the paranormal investigation teams, Marter Paranormal, posted their findings on their website. See what they had to say here: Marter Paranormal: Grand Ledge Residential.
Are you freaked out yet? Ready to hear the craziest part of all? We have ZERO plans to move. We love our house, ghosts and all. I even find myself talking to them sometimes when I'm home alone. We don't feel threatened, and according to all of the "experts," we're in no danger. So, for now, we're staying put.
