Hickox Home, Sept 2012

September 10th and 11th, 2012

We needed two nights to accomodate the amazing turnout for our first investiagation of the Virgil Hickox Home.  It was great to see so many new faces, but especially gratifying to have experienced members step up and help lead.  As always I am impressed by the caliber of the teams, and from an investigation perspective, I'm never disappointed.  It was a great start!!!

Sponsor:  Dave Roberts

Photos and Enhancements

These two pictures were taken just seconds apart, with and without a flash.  An enhancement of the second photo appeared to show that perhaps someone else had joined this investigation team under the stairs. 

 

This picture was taken using a phone camera on the second floor.  When the photo was enhanced, an apparent figure appeared to be standing on the right side of the room.

The picture below was taken using a Sanyo Digital Camera. 

 

This was taken in the second floor Parlor area.

 

Team Reports and Observations

Date: September 10, 2012

Location: Hickox House

Time: 6:30pm-9:00pm

*********************

Group: Amethyst, David, Brock, Michael, Cali, and Joel

Observations:

Ø There was an extreme K2 meter spike at the door of the downstairs bathroom, near the small room called the "Portal" by some.

Ø The newspaper on the bulletin board in Alice's room blew up for no reason. There was not a draft in the room, all doors and windows were closed.

Ø The spirit box sounded like some voices, and responded to Mr.Robert's.

Ø  Joel and Amethyst used the rods and got a lot of reactions. We think we found out we were in contact with a female who may have been involved with someone from the old Sangamo Club.

Ø  We realize things like the spirit box and dowsing rods are just more methods used by some to investigate and are not necessarily accurate indicators!

Physical Evidence: N/A

Group: Caleb, Clayton, and Brittany

Observations:

Ø We were sitting in the padded closet upstairs and heard a knock on the door, but no one came in or said anything. We think it may have been Alice.

Group: DC.

Observations:

Ø I am not a investigator. I am merely here to help out, I'm afraid of the dark (and spirits) but one day I hope to get evidence. One day!

Other Highlights:

When I sat on the couch, every hair on my neck stood up in the attic room.I also heard a knock on the table in the library.
