Paranormal / Unusual Activity

There was not as much paranormal or unusual activity during our second investigation as during the first. Odd smells of tobacco once again graced the main auditorium at various times throughout the night. All of those present, with the exception of one, smelled the scent at least twice. When the investigation team was waiting in the downstairs hallway for the ghostly woman to make an appearance, there was a strange flash of light, although it could have been headlights or some other light source coming through a nearby window. At one point while waiting for the woman to appear, all of the investigators head a strange noise on the stairway directly behind the area where Niklas was sitting. The first noise sounded like someone breathing heavily from the landing just above Niklas. The sound was captured by our audio equipment and is listed in the evidence below. The breathing was followed by some sort of squealing noise, but it is possible that the squealing sound was road noise coming into the building from the roadway outside. A total of three instances of electronic voice phenomenon was captured during the investigation.

Evidence – EVP Recordings

No: This whispery voice responds, “No,” to a question asked to one of our investigators before she had a chance to reply.
Hey: Another whispery voice saying, “Hi,” was recorded over the voice of an investigator.
No #2: A long drawn-out, “No,” responded to a statement about a payroll check.
Breathing: The breathing sound heard by the investigators coming from behind Niklas on the stairwell landing.
