Business – 8191

August 23, 2009 – Pinellas Park with Recheck September 13, 2009

In honor of Hallowe’en 2011, we present to you one of the most classic unhappy ghost hauntings that the SPIRITS has had.  Due to the circumstances of the case, we can only disclose partial information in order to keep client confidentiality.

The location in question was the place of a homicide.  The industrial building was a place of business.  During one period of time, two men lived in the building.  A fight ensued and one stabbed the other to death.  The building turned over to new renters with another busines.  One night, the owner was working with a couple of associates a gunman came in and opened fire.  At least one died instantly at his hands.  After the police investigation the building was released.  New renters came in.  They discovered a grisley scene:  blood and bullets from the original crime scene remained behind; no one had cleaned it up.  They removed the mess, rennovated the building, and moved  their business in. However, the memory of the violence persisted.  So did the restless spirits of the building.

Much of the activity centered around those who worked and stayed in the building late at night.  Shadows were seen and cold spots felt.  The family dog would attack empty air.  Voices, whistles, and whispers echoed through the building. Electronics acted up.

The SPIRITS investigated the building two times.  In each instance, sensitives were the most helpful to getting information.  Several determined information about the deceased that was later verified through research.  Equipment did behave oddly.  This was one case where the Paranormal Puck, an instrument that can be debated as to its accuracy, did behave in a rather unique manner.   Though it would prattle on randomly, when the team paused, an explaination of the device was given, and questions were asked, the Puck responded in a unique manner.  After specific questions, the Puck would pause, produce a word, and pause again.  The pauses were so evident that they were documented in the reports.  Words such as “justice” and “crossover” were the results of these pauses.

A couple of EVPs did produce whsipered effects.  The building was totally quiet during the sessions and so was the team.  Everyone was gathered in one place and no one spoke at the time.  One recording had soft whispers in the background.  The other is posted with this page, though secondary electronic transmission hampers the whispered sounds caught on recording.  

The SPIRITS did advise the business owners to work wtih the entities in a compassionate manner.  It was also advised that they longer that they stayed in the building the more their energies woudl embue the structure.  We did offer to find someone to cleanse the building, but our clients declined the service.  

Months after the investigation the newspaper published an article announcing the capture of the man who attacked.  He went to trial and was found guilty.  It is our hope that this also allowed the entities inside to find both justice some well deserved peace.

We have not heard from the business owners again.  It is our hope that they, too, have found some peace within the building and continue to work successfully within. ‚Äč

The Paranormal Puck came up with several interesting phrases. I would explain its function in each room and then ask the entity to use the puck to answer questions. I set the Puck to constant mode. When I would go into a room, the Puck would “talk” at random. When I would explain directions, the Puck stopped “chatting”. When I asked a question, it would pause, say 1 word, then pause, and continue. Examples include: Loft — “What message do you have to pass on?” Answer: Justice. Another time, with the same question, it was “Crossover”. It also came up with “Problem Pet” (the family dog reacts badly to something in the area). When we were up in the apt. area, my computer froze when I was typing about our experiment with the sword. Someone in the area had been stabbed to death; homeowners put up a wooden sword in the room where the individual died. One investigator had a sword provided by the home owner in hand.  When I typed sensitives’ response to this (they felt uncomfortable, despite our investigator being on the team and holding a wooden sword, standing on the opposite side of the room, etc.) and the investigator, himself, added that the entity would not like him, the computer froze. I could see the screen but could not type anything. When the computer “unfroze” the phrase “He would not like me” was highlighted in black, with the font in white, for about 5 seconds before the text reverted to normal. The EVP and experiment in the upstairs apartment got no results. The EVP in the downstairs area, in the room where two men had been killed, resulted in a possible EVP. In two places on the 9 minute recording there are sounds similar to whispers. The first is so faint that I am not sure that it will translate via computer. The second is audible to the ear without modification. Our sensitive is describing a child that belongs to one of the deceased. I asked “What is the child’s name?” and she whispered “I don’t know”. However, after that there sounds like more whispering. No one in the room was speaking and I am not sure where the sound might have come from. 
6. What sensitive observations did you note during the investigation? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
None, really. 
7. What researched/historical information did you learn about this location? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
A ton. Site had three deaths which were documented via various reports. Police case is still on-going for one suspect; the other was caught and is serving time. 
8. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the haunting of this location? Note on scale: 1 represents “no haunting”, 5 “moderate haunting” and 10 “extremely haunted”?

9. What issues does the review team need to address with the occupant (homeowner, business owner, resident)? What aspects of the investigation need to be re-addressed, retested, or clarified?
Need to see what happens after there is an anniversary of the killings (1 year anniversary). I suspect activity may increase and then, hopefully, decrease. Owners need to work on making the place their own; possible blessing. I have a ghost cleanser ready should they need him. 
10. Is there any other information that you would like to add about this investigation? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.

5. What technical observations did you note during the investigation? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
The Paranormal Puck came up with several repeated words, including “Sugar”. Verna is working with the Puck session. EVP did not come up with anything.
6. What sensitive observations did you note during the investigation? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
Sensitives sensed only one person this time.  I believe that the area is now haunted with only one entity who is not taking control of the moment. He was young when he died, and he died as a murder. He feels guilt, particularly letting down possibly still living family members. The original death on the property is a residue. The second entity seems to have crossed over post anniversary of his death. The third, however, remains fairly strong. Complains of pain, presence still sensed in the room where he died. He was described by a sensitive who had not been on the property before, quite accurately.
7. What researched/historical information did you learn about this location? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
Brandy: Recheck, though we did learn more of the original death on the property.
8. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the haunting of this location? Note on scale: 1 represents “no haunting”, 5 “moderate haunting” and 10 “extremely haunted”?
8
9. What issues does the review team need to address with the occupant (homeowner, business owner, resident)? What aspects of the investigation need to be re-addressed, retested, or clarified?
Brandy: I would like to keep trying to communicate with the remaining entity. I am saddened that he is trapped in the moment. If we can convince him that he needs to own up to what happened and that it is his choice to cross over (that he should take the responsibility to cross over), I beleive that things would setle down.
10. Is there any other information that you would like to add about this investigation? For purposes of categorizing data, please post your first name, followed by your response.
