In a small rural cemetery near the Sacramento area, a local legend seems to be living on, so to speak. (The cemetery’s name and exact location is being withheld for security reasons.)

An apparition known locally as the “Lady in White” is sometimes reportedly seen walking amongst the tombstones of this cemetery, which dates back to 1876. The Lady in White is often seen just after dark, according to reports.  S.P.I.R.I.T. team members were dispatched to investigate.

The team arrived at the cemetery at around 6:30 p.m. This gave team members ample time to familiarize themselves with the grounds before dark. The team split loosely into 3 groups – after dark, no one was to go anywhere in the cemetery alone.

At approximately 8:30 p.m. I captured an EVP in the northwest corner of the graveyard. This particular corner of the property seemed to lend itself to photographs that were out of focus for no reason, people feeling a drain of their energy or feeling otherwise uncomfortable there, and a sudden drain on device batteries. The EVP I captured was in response to my asking the entity its name – the answer was an audible “Victor.”

This coincided with two nearby gravestones with the first name “Victor” on them. What’s interesting is that it is this section of the cemetery where the “Lady in White” often seems to originate from. The two Victors laid to rest there were assumedly father and son, with the mother “Carol” laid to rest between them. Carol’s gravestone indicated that she had been associated with the medical field.

After I captured the EVP and left that corner of the cemetery to investigate other areas, Kaylie and James were drawn to the same northwest corner of the cemetery by a sense of unrest there, and were drawn to the grave of the elder Victor, without any prior knowledge that I had captured the “Victor” EVP there.  Sporadic K2 Meter hits were also noted at the elder Victor’s grave.

On the northeast corner of the cemetery there is a small unimproved open area owned by the cemetery board of trustees, but not actually part of the cemetery.  This area was unkempt, with piles of leaves and a disheveled wood pile. As night fell on the cemetery, two investigators found the bare skeleton of a bird surrounded by a rough circle of raw corn kernels, in this unimproved area.  A few feet away from this was evidence of a small campfire. This led S.P.I.R.I.T. team members to postulate that the area may have been used for some type of pagan small animal sacrifice ritual. Two of the team’s sensitives felt there may be human remains / unmarked graves in this unimproved area, but this could not be verified.

One of the graves in the cemetery appeared to be fresh, and thus was easier for S.P.I.R.I.T. sensitives to pick up on residual energy from the gravesite. No temporary headstone had been placed at the grave yet. Our sensitives felt that it was the new grave of a man in his 30s who had died unexpectedly in a car crash. This information has not, as of this writing, been verified.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. a Spirit Box session at a grave site proved inconclusive. At the end of that session, Amy and Miranda approached the group with a photograph they had just captured in the northwest corner of the cemetery, near the grave of the two Victors and Carol:

This photograph is what is known as a “mist” photograph. It was a clear night with no fog whatsoever, and there is no logical explanation for the photograph.

Cemetery Mist

Did Amy and Miranda capture a photograph of the Lady in White as she left her grave for her nightly evening stroll?  Could the “Lady in White” be Carol, a former nurse or doctor, whose husband appears to be not at rest?

Such postulations are easy and tempting to make, and who knows – perhaps it’s even true. But the evidence does not support that. The evidence gathered by the S.P.I.R.I.T. team members on this investigation does strongly suggest that something is not at rest in this peaceful rural cemetery, and by the end of the night, we were unable to either confirm or debunk the Mystery of the Lady in White.

WHO HAUNTS MY HOUSE?

Investigation on January 10th, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Davis, CA

The team is called to a home in Davis, CA, near the UC Davis Campus. Five people live in this 3 bedroom home. Two of the occupants have felt watched and constantly followed and harassed by what they describe as a strong voyeuristic male entity in the home. Their experiences have consistently matched when they compared notes.

Of particular note was the paranormal activity and / or presence they felt in the attached garage, which they partially used as a home office and design studio. A frosted opaque bathroom window is directly accessible from the garage. Directly below this window hung an antique mirror, which has since been taken down. Mirrors are thought by many to amplify and / or enable spirit activity in certain circumstances.

The Investigation

Two one hour sessions were conducted. Through Melissa’s use of the P-SB11 Spirit Box, contact was made in the master bedroom with the male voyeuristic entity. The entity spoke through the device, confirming that there were three people in the room, and that one of them was “a Dodgers fan.”  During the investigative round in the master bedroom, the K2 meter and the Mel Meter both recorded sporadic “floating” unexplained spikes in electromagnetic energy in the middle of the room, which occurred in different places around the room at different times. These EMF spikes coincided with sudden cold spots around the room that set off the K2 meter’s temperature change alarm. The entity was asked how it died, and it replied (through the P-SB11) only that “I did.”  As the investigators continued to try to locate any possible source for the floating EMF spikes, the P-SB11 Spirit Box said clearly, “What are they doing?”

In the second one hour investigative round, several orbs were caught on camera by different team members. A large orb showed up in one picture in the bathroom window from the garage; the orb was not present in any other shots of the bathroom window from the garage.

The K2 meter and temperature alarm began spiking without reason in the garage area. One of the investigators asked the entity to make the temperature alarm go off to let us know the device was under spirit influence. This began a series of intelligent responses from the temperature alarm in response to yes and no questions from investigators. The alarm never went off in the garage after this point in the investigation, except in direct and immediate response to a yes or no question, and only when the answer to the question appeared to be a “yes.” This entire “conversation” using only a K2 temperature alarm was documented and caught on film.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the home was smudged and cleansed.  Since the investigation, the occupants have stated that the paranormal activity in the home has ceased, but that a “creepy feeling” does still sometimes linger in the house. The occupants were advised to re-smudge the home on a regular basis in the coming few weeks.

Conclusion:

Based upon the intelligent and accurate responses received via the P-SB11 Spirit Box, personal experiences by team members feeling the entity’s actual presence throughout the investigation, recorded EMF spikes and repeatable and measurable cold spots, along with intelligent communication using the temperature alarm, this haunting is being classified as a negative haunting by the spirit of a deceased man, possibly the home’s original owner.

Case closed. Classification: Negative human entity / haunting.
