Final Report and Analysis

Case 010

Belcher Home

March 14, 2009

Tazewell Virginia


Rodney Shortridge, Robyn Belcher


     On March 14, 2009 Robyn and I investigated her home located in Tazewell, Virginia. I would like to thank Robyn and Johnny Belcher for their permission to investigate their home. I decided that due to investigating one of my own team member’s home that it would be beneficial that Robyn and I would do the investigation. Our historian Nicole researched the property and she found no evidence of any deaths or any accidents on the property. We started our investigation around 8:00 p.m. and finished around 12:30 a.m.

     Robyn reported seeing shadows from the corner of her eyes while working in the kitchen, hearing a child’s voice and her own children reported seeing shadows at night by their doorway and the bedroom door opening on its own.

     Equipment used at this site included (4) DVR’s, (1) Microcassette Recorder, (2) Camcorders-one with night vision, (1) digital camera, (1) K2 Meter, (1) EMF Meter, (1) small toy that plays music when a key is touched. As we try to do in all of our investigations we placed the DVR’s in areas that have reports of paranormal activity. The child’s toy was placed in the center of the living room. One camcorder was placed in the boy’s bedroom where they report seeing shadows and where the closet door would open on its own. We also placed the EMF Meter by the closet door in the view of the camcorder. The microcassette recorder was held by Robyn along with the K2 Meter. We placed 1 DVR (digital voice recorder) in the daughter’s room, 1 in the bathroom, 1 in the basement and 1 in the kitchen.

     Robyn and I started our investigation around 8:00 p.m. We started in the kitchen and moved throughout the home. While using the K2 Meter, we were getting very strong EMF (electro-magnetic field) readings which can cause dizziness, blurred vision, some-what like motion sickness if exposed to for a long period of time, in the boy’s room and also in the daughter’s room that are separated by the electric furnace. Also the boy’s closet door latch has been bent which causes the door not to shut very good, so when another door in the house is being closed or opened it will cause a vacuum throughout the home which in turn will open the boy’s closet door.

     We have come to the conclusion that this home has no paranormal activity even though we were able to capture a number of orbs with our digital cameras.  Our hope is to one day come back to investigate this home with more advanced equipment. This was our tenth investigation and it was a great success.

     I look forward to our next investigation. If anyone would like for us to do a paranormal investigation of their home, business, church, property or a family cemetery please contact us. If you would just like to speak with us about any paranormal activity you may be having we would love to hear from you. No problem is too small. We would be honored to help and we do not charge for our services. Contact BDPS to set up a time and place for us to discuss your paranormal questions and or problems.

     I feel honored to be working with such a great team. Without the team’s hard work and professionalism BDPS would not be what it has become today.

     I hope everyone enjoys the photos and the analysis sheet along with the new video we are providing. In the future we will have a web-site that will be listing all the information that I have been providing. Also we will have our EVP’s and any video evidence on the site for everyone to view and listen to. You can judge it for yourself. If anyone has any questions or comments we would love to hear from you. Let us know what you think.
