History: Relatives of a fatal train accident that occurred on Miner Lane, Waterford, Ct. on 9-28-2005 own the home. There were two people that were killed in the accident and a third person whom died of injuries a few days later. Of the people who died were a grandmother who was 62; a female child aged 4 and a male child aged 8. Predeceased by these people was a gentleman aged 83 who was a good friend of the family. Earlier this year there was another death of a relative who was the wife of the owner.
Recently there have been reports of paranormal activity and voices caught on a digital voice recorder. The homeowner’s daughter has reported that chairs in the kitchen have been heard and seen to move across the kitchen floor. She has also recorded voices in the home of an unidentified man. We were asked to investigate the home due to these occurrences.
Investigation: We arrived at the home approximately 7pm and were given a tour of the property and areas that were reported to have had activity. There were 5 members on this investigation. We set up the DVR equipment in the garage to avoid contamination of evidence and proceeded to set up the cameras in the kitchen, homeowner’s bedroom, and two in the finished basement, which contained a bedroom and living area. The camera in the kitchen was set up to catch any movement of the chairs. A laser light was also set up on the stairs leading to the finished basement, as there were reports of footsteps on the stairs. Three of the members entered the home and began the investigation using a digital camera, K2 meter to pick up electrical activity and a digital thermometer to register cold spots as well as the digital voice recorder and camcorder. A digital voice recorder was left on one of the kitchen countertops all evening. This proved to be an error in judgment as there was much contamination from the refrigerator running sporadically throughout the evening. We began our investigation in the living room off the kitchen area and did an EVP and meditation session. During the meditation session, one of the members experienced a tightness in her throat and a sensed a strong smell of perfume that smelled like vanilla musk. The homeowner’s daughter did state that her relative wore similar perfume, however the EVP session did not bring evidence of her being there or responding to us. At this point, I might add that there was always someone monitoring the DVR set up in the garage for evidence that we might miss while in the home. Two of the members continued downstairs to the finished basement where a third member joined us. We did an EVP session in this area as well as using the K2 and digital camera. While down in this area we did hear voices all around us and what we perceived to be footsteps on the stairs. We were able to capture this on the digital voice recorder. There were reports of movement on the bed as if someone was getting into bed, so one of the members did lie on the bed for a while. There was also a report of one of her friends being punched in the back while lying in bed. We did not experience any of this activity, however, so we proceeded to go back upstairs and do an investigation of the computer room where we did another EVP session.
We decided to take a short break and allow other team members to come in and investigate. Three of the members re-entered the home and proceeded to do an investigation of the living room. The hot spot seemed to center around a recliner in the living room. There were feelings of someone standing directly behind you as you sat there as well as a feeling of being extremely cold. There were no changes in thermometer readings and at this point we were not getting hits on the K2 meter. When monitoring the DVR cameras however we did see multiple orbs in this area, one showing itself as a pulsating orb with a black mass within its perimeter. We don’t take a lot of stock in orbs having many explanations for these from dust to bugs to light reflections.
At this point in time, one of the team members decided to play a game of tag with whoever was in the home and was saying “tag. You’re it”. This went on for quite some time when he was actually “tagged” by something. He was not expecting this and literally flew out of the chair. There was evidence of something having touched him as his face was reddened and he was experiencing a stinging sensation to that area that lasted quite a while. He went outside to take a break but returned and the homeowner’s daughter joined us to do an EVP session. During this session we were getting direct responses on the K2 meter. Please see listings of EVPs.
After this session we wrapped it for the night. All in all I have to say this location is definitely a hot spot for paranormal activity. This would be classified as an intelligent haunting as we were getting results from the EVP session in direct relation to our questions. Why the activity is happening here at this home and not at the site of the fatal accident I cannot answer except to say that the spirits feel comfortable around their relatives.
