the BDPS team
investigated a private residence. The clients asked us to not give out their location and abiding by their request, this location has been classified as an undisclosed location. I would like to take
this moment to thank the owner of the home, for giving us permission to investigate such a beautiful home. We decided because of the size of the home that we would have one team investigating inside
while one team watched the camera monitor and the last team would wait until their time for rotation. We started our investigation around 6:00 p.m. with a walking tour of the home that was given by
the home owner. We started our set up around 7:00 p.m. We then proceeded to our investigation. Soon after we divided into teams. Team 1 consisted of me and Robyn, Team 2 consisted of Michel and Pat,
Team 3 consisted of Matt and David, and Team 4 consisted of Jerry and Jeff. Each team worked on a rotation changing their location about every 1 ½ hour. We finished our investigation around 3:00 a.m.
the following morning. This was a great experience and very helpful in our constant training.
EQUIPMENT USED AT THIS
(4) DVR’s (Digital Voice Recorders)
(4) Zero Lux low lever IR (infra-red) cameras
(1) Sony handheld camcorder
(4) Digital cameras
(1) Canon digital camera
(1) Laser Grid Light
(1) K2 Meters
(1) EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) Meter
(1) Laser Thermometers
We placed (1) DVR
(Digital Voice Recorder) in each of the areas of the home with reports or claims of paranormal activity; including the basement, mudroom and upstairs hallway. The (1) IR camera was placed in the
mudroom, (1) was placed in the in the upstairs hallway, (1) was placed in the basement and (1) was placed at the bottom of the basement steps to get a view of the stairway coming down into the
basement. (1) Sony handheld camcorder was carried around by Rodney. Also, each team carried along with them during their investigations one of the following: DVR (Digital Voice Recorder), K2 Meter,
EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) Meter or Laser Thermometer.
Reports & Claims:
This is a newer modern home. The
clients have heard unexplained voices, footsteps. Family members have seen a small boy around the age of 4 or 5 in the mudroom area. The home owner has had experiences with a boy apparition. Home
owner’s mother passed away and the home owner feels a presence within the home and feels that this could be her mother. The home owner isn’t afraid or uncomfortable, just wants to make sure the
spirts aren’t trapped.
We were unable to find any historical information on the
Prior to the investigation, I was assigned to take thermometer reading. Basement
temperatures averaged 60 F at floor level and 65 F at the ceiling. Mid-level floor averaged 65 F at Floor level and 70 F at the ceiling and the bedroom hallway averaged 70 F at floor level and 75 F
at the ceiling. The only variations of note were at the apex of the foyer and kitchen ceilings, which read in the 80-85 F range.
During the investigation
I was teamed with Jeff Dalton. We entered the investigation area at approximately
Each of us was equipped with a camera and a K2 Meter. Noticing little of interest in
the foyer, we proceeded to the basement apartment. As I had noticed some reflections on the stairs while monitoring the video, and so took several photos of the stairs, but observed nothing by naked
Having heard the stories of “the little boy at the airport” Jeff and I started a
conversation about airplanes, and I told him about when I used to go to the airport and eat supper on the hill while watching the planes. Jeff noticed that his K2 meter, which he had placed between
us on the table had lit the second LED. I placed mine close by and it did the same.
At about 2320-2325, we were called back upstairs because the air conditioning had
switched back to “heat” as had been reported. Jeff suspected there was an issue between two controllers due to wiring issues (You'll have to discuss that with him. My knowledge of HVAC is, “I set the
thermostat and it gets comfortable”.).
More interesting is that while Jeff was checking the vents, the female dog (the
friendly one) got between Jeff and myself (we were on opposite sides of the room) and started barking. At first I thought she was barking at Jeff for some reason, but then I noticed she was actually
barking at a point between us. She backed up to my feet, then ran behind me, and finally ran completely out of the room. Several minutes later, she returned, her normal playful
After Jeff discussed the likely “real world” reasons for the HVAC problems, we
returned downstairs and tried to restart our “conversation”, but the K2 meters never moved again, except in the vicinity of the microwave (think they need a new one).
Personal opinion: I think at least the “little boy” may not be attached to the house,
but rather the female owner, especially since she mentioned that she had originally encountered him at the airport. Neither of us observed anything we might attribute to the deceased
Photo evidence: We have a photo that shows a large white orb in the mother’s bedroom. We also have a photo of an unexplained red light streak in
the area of the stairway that leads to the basement.
evidence: No video evidence.
Note: BDPS does not support the
idea of orbs as evidence of the paranormal because most orbs can be explained away as dust, bugs, rain, mist, fog, etc. There are cases that the orbs we photograph seem to move with some type of
intelligent intent. We post these photos because we feel that there needs to be more investigation into the Orb Phenomenon and we shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss this phenomenon without further
investigation and explanation. So we show these photos in an attempt to add another piece to the puzzle and leave this decision up to you to accept or dismiss orbs as evidence. It is also my opinion
to show all evidence so we all can learn from what might be an area of the paranormal that may be getting over looked by researchers.

come to the conclusion that the clients home has very low paranormal activity in the forms of EVP’s, interesting photographic evidence, unexplained K-2 hits and personal experiences that helped us to
determine our conclusion.
