Paranormal Photograph of Child – Not in Room at the Time

with 3 comments

A fellow paranormal investigator and I went to the residence of our next investigation to interview the owner. We had a fascinating discussion. Before we left the home, the owner brought out a photograph to show us. The she allowed us to take the photograph with us so it could be scanned and copies made. While most of the photo is underexposed and slightly blurry, there is no mistaking the child in the photograph. Now, the male child on the right in the photograph is present, but had a clean face. This was taken during Christmas  and there were several family members present. However, the child with the most action and looking directly at the camera – was not there – for the photograph. No one in the family has ever known or seen this child. None of the people present saw the child in the room. 

I am posting this photograph so that we may get comments from other investigators.  I am a professional photographer and have been so since 1973. The photograph did not appear to be tampered with and was developed by a retail store. I am looking for plenty of discussion on the photo. 

Can we get your opinion please?

Cedar Creek Lake Paranormal Society July Minutes

with 2 comments

Cedar Creek Lake Paranormal Society met July 10 at the Dairy Queen in Seven Points, TX at 7:00 PM. Present were Brianna, Tamra, Cathy and Martha. Not present were Kathy, Pam and Kelly.

  1. There was one visitor at the end of the meeting
  2. Everyone present stated they saw the minutes of the June meeting on our blog.
  3. Members were asked for any ideas for a logo design. One suggestion was to use a photo I took of an old historic house and “trick” it up.
  4. It was decided to put the overnight to the Jefferson Hotel on hold for a later date.
  5. Discussed an upcoming paranormal investigation. Several dates were discussed and we settled on July 25 so that Brianna could participate. This house has possible paranormal activity and the owner agreed to allow CCLPSinvestigate as a practice run for our less experienced investigators. CCPLS will meet at 8:00 PM for the investigation.
  6. Members agreed to hold the August meeting at the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie. Meeting time will be at 7:30 PM. Members in the lake area can meet and carpool.
  7. Brianna told us she spoke to a program director for a nearby radio station and they seem to have a problem with employees seeing a person when no one else is around and are interested in a paranormal investigation. Martha will contact the program director.
  8. Martha told members that she plans to contact a woman in Kaufman County who lives in an old house where multiple people have seen full bodied apparitions in the home and outside on the property, poltergiest activity, knocks and voices. Martha will make contact with the family and se if they want a paranormal investigation.
  9. Members spoke with a lady from the Eustace area who claims to have spirits all over her property she has photographed. We viewed some of her photos and gave her suggetions on how to reasearch her property and former owners. She believes she has captured thousands of orbs in her photographs. We gave her information on debunking orbs  CCLPS obtained from Troy Taylor  on his web site and the American Ghost Society.


The “practice” investigation has ben cancelled and wll be rescheduled.

June Cedar Creek Lake Paranormal Society Meeting

with 4 comments

The monthly Cedar Creek Lake Paranormal Society meeting was held at Jalapeno Tree in Gun Barrel City, TX at 7:00 pm.

Items discussed were:

  • Those not present included Cathy Hogan, Pam Silva, Kathy Henderson and Kelly Acorn. Everyone else was present.
  • Tamra Brickey spoke to a woman regarding an investigation occurring at her home due to unexplainedactivity inside the house. The home is in Rice and a relative passed away in one of the bedrooms and seems to be returning to this room, according to the interview. Other incidents include lights flickering in the kitchen only when all the family members are present and an individal reported seeing clouds in the closet. The family asked to be contacted again regarding the incidents and Ms. Brickey is trying to contact but has been playing phone tag with the woman so a possible investigation can be set. We think this merits further discussion with the family to see what they want to occur.
  • Martha Decker spoke at length to a man in Oklahoma who thought something strange and unexplained occurred in his apartment. After the discussion and speaking with other family members it was agreed to close this call.
  • A call was put out to members requesting help with a design for the CCLPS logo. Everyone was asked to think creatively and see what we could come up with in the near futue.
  • If we should hold a monthly meeting at the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie. Part of the allure for the meeting there is that it is close and known world-wide as a haunted location. We decided not to meet there at this time and to change the July meeting to July 10 because of the July Fourth holiday. It will be held at the Dairy Queen in Seven Points at 7:00 pm.
  • A discussion occurred abou CCLPS going to Jefferson TX and staying at the haunted Jefferson Hotel on July 25th. It was decided to finalize the decision during the July monthly meeting.

This is what occurred during the June meeting. An email will be sent to members reminding them of the date change for the July meeting.
