One of the most active sites Synergy Paranormal Investigation has ever investigated thus far came to us as a referral from our good friends at Midwest Paranormal Investigators (MPI) in Kearney, Neb. They asked for our assistance with a residential site due to their full case load at the time. The site was located in Oxford, Neb., which is roughly an hour and a half southwest of Kearney. The case involved a family who believed their house to be haunted. The paranormal activity seemed to be ramping up, and they were becoming more uncomfortable with their situation.

This family consisted of a very energetic grandmother, Connie, and her three grandchildren. The younger two grandchildren were boys, 11 and 12, and the oldest was a girl, 14. They were very gracious folks who had been through a lot of drama and disappointments, but they managed to keep a good attitude about life and healing in general. Connie had lived at the residence for more than 12 years. She’d had a few paranormal incidents over time, but she coped with them well. It wasn’t until the children moved in that the activity began to accelerate. By the time I first talked to her, the family was terrified by dark shadows, apparitions, whispering voices and a very heavy electric energy that plagued the house. Connie is active in Bible Study, and she genuinely feared the potential for demonic activity around them. At that point, in her mind, anything that was classified as paranormal was demonic in nature.

After having contact with Connie per email and then phone conversations, I changed up our schedule in order to prioritize her case. The youngest boy, Nathan, was having trouble sleeping, and he reported encounters with a creepy “white face with black hair” when he got up to use the restroom in the night. His sister was terrorized by a shadow man, approximately six feet tall, who randomly crawled along the walls and ceiling in her room. She slept with the television on every night to drown out the whispering voices. In fact, her T.V. was on all the time. Friends and cousins who had spent the night with them readily validated the family’s claims of the unexplained.

Our first investigation was fairly quiet. We did feel the energy at times, and we experienced a few incidences of high electromagnetic fields with our KII meters. But personal experiences were limited, and there were no anomalies noted on video. Toward the end of the night, the energy picked up a bit and we could definitely feel the electricity that the family had described.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       We finally captured a very distinct voice on the ghost box that responded with, “I miss her,” when asked why it bothered the children so much through the night. We then spent a good deal of time explaining that the children needed their sleep so they could go to school the next day–they felt bullied and afraid–and it needed to stop. I suppose you could say we were provoking the energy to try to get more of a response. Then, there was a very solid second electronic voice phenomena that said, “Yeah,” when asked if anyone wanted to talk to us.

By the time we had analyzed our evidence and shared it with our MPI counterparts, we couldn’t necessarily say the house was haunted, but it was decided that a second visit was indeed warranted. We scheduled it immediately, and it would prove to be a much more productive ghost adventure.
