Looking for Investigations

Looking for Investigations

Our group of seven women had our first “official” investigation on a Friday night. Our initial location fell through at the last minute, but we were able to make contact with a cemetery association and get permission to investigate. Our policy is to not reveal the name or location of the cemetery to protect it from vandals. The conditions were not ideal for an investigation. However, we needed to have a training session since the majority of members have not done this type of investigation. We were at the cemetery for three hours and I think it went well. A lot was learned that can be applied to the next investigation.

This cemetery has been touted by locals as “haunted” for many years. I have lived in the Cedar Creek Lake area since the mid 80’s and have heard the stories. We did not have any paranormal experiences but did have the chance to use a variety of equipment. Everyone took digital photographs, used video cameras and tried EVP sessions with their digital recorders. Once we were done, each person was responsible for reviewing their own evidence.

It was a busy Friday night on the road to nowhere that continued past the cemetery but no one saw our vehicles as we were able to park out of sight. We were careful to keep flashlights to a minimum when traffic went past. Even the local sheriff’s office was notifed when we arrived and departed should they have received any calls.

We split up in teams of two and then teams of three to do various investigations. Photography was first for the investigation. Then we did the video investigation with EVP sessions at the end. I think this allowed the group to keep lights flashing and flashlights geting in the way to a minimum.

There were a few pictures with odd things like light moving where tree limbs should be or what looked like a face in the middle of one shot. Further review of these pictures revealed nothing paranormal. The light where the tree limb should have been was most likely caused by a moving flashlight. The face was a picture shot without realizing it while the camera was facing the red dirt and a flashlight for lighting. It looked like there were tons of “orbs” in many pictures, but these could have been caused by reflections, bugs, dust, pollen and who knows what else.

Over all it was a good learning experience and we had fun. The investigation and pictures will be discussed at our next meeting along with training on orbs. We can’t wait for our next investigation.

  2. If you’re willing to spend about $100, you’re going
    to get a lot more than an electric vegetable slicer. You may not get all of these at once, starting out we seem to inherit some from family but we would all like to
    own our own to make that start special. Followed by a
    afternoon break which means you need to invest in a tea
    or coffee maker and oven to bake some freshest
    of chocolate chip cookies for yourself.

    There are times when the picture of car available online does not matches with
    the one you opted. They have done a very thorough job in anticipating any questions you might
    have, but in the (highly unlikely) event that you do happen to have a car leasing question not already answered on the site, there is a link provided for you to
    submit your query directly to the site.
