Muscatine Iowa Private Home Investigation February 1, 2014

by on Feb.16, 2014, under Investigations

Background

MVP was contacted by a single mother living in Muscatine, Iowa regarding a fair amount of unexplained activity occurring in her home. Reported occurrences included seeing a black mass, hearing footsteps, objects being moved, whispering, etc. Also reported are various lights in the house turning on by themselves and the pets being bothered often. She also said that her son experienced some activity, including his dresser drawers all pulling out evenly on their own and pounding on the walls.

 

Weather

Temperature upon arrival was 19 degrees with a partly cloudy sky. The moon phase was Waxing Crescent.

 

Pre-Investigation

MVP arrived at the home at 6:30PM with members Becky Reid, Bryce Carlson, Sally Jacobs, Mandy Peters, and Terry Enright in attendance.

 

Following an interview and house tour, the homeowner left the premises with the investigation commencing around 8PM.

An EMF tour of the home concluded that there was an unusually high amount of electromagnetic fields throughout the house. An investigation of the electrical conduit in the basement concluded this to be the primary cause, with the homeowner being informed about it.

The investigation concluded around 11PM.

 

Equipment Setup

Command Center was set up in the dining room. The Night Owl DVR cameras were set up facing the kitchen, one covering the basement, and one the master bedroom. The geophone was set up in the son’s bedroom with a minidv camera recording it. Two 360 recorders were set up, one in the living room and the other in the master bedroom. Another recorder was set up in the basement. The cell sensor was set up in the living room. There were 2 mobile recorders, 2 mobile EMF detectors, and 2 digital cameras.

 

Personal Experiences

There were few personal experiences. Before the investigation started, at 7:30PM, it was reported that the light in the master bedroom was on when it confirmed that it had been turned off. At various times, everyone reported unexplained noises that were heard throughout the house, with no explaination.

 

Evidence Collected

Audio Evidence:

No audio evidence was captured.

 

Video Evidence:

: A noise is heard and the geophone flashes.: Movement upstairs and the geophone flashes.: Geophone flashes.

 Conclusions

Though the team members didn’t experience any of the homeowner’s claims, we have no reason to doubt the homeowners’ claims about the house. While we usually look at the lack of activity as a good sign, the owner has already reported additional activity occurring within the home. One investigation usually isn’t enough time to try to fully determine what is happening at a location, so MVP looks forward to hopefully investigating this property again so we can end or at least determine the source of paranormal activity.
