We got to the salon at about 6PM and waited for the last client to leave. The first thing
I did was video tape the psychic lady, Cass, while she used her tools to question and track the spirit. She concluded
that there were two female spirits in the building and that one of them was pregnant. She also concluded that the spirit
was centered near a painting hanging on the north wall between the two windows.
Later, we all gathered in the north section of the building to speak to the ladies who work there.
While we were talking, two people felt a cold breeze on their arms. I got the thermometer and watched it while we continued
to talk, the temperature readings stayed constant around 70 degrees. Also while we were talking, a few people heard
sounds coming from the restroom, I checked it out with the EMF reader but didn't find anything out of the ordinary.
The readings are higher than average in the restroom, due to the lights and possibly electrical equipment on the roof.
We then left the salon and walked around the outside of the building. As we were coming
around the south side of the builidng, Alyssa met us and said that she had been inside the salon with one of her customers
and something small and black ran out of the bathroom and ran up her back. I took readings near the bathroom with the
EMF meter but found nothing out of the ordinary although EMF levels are high in the building due to high voltage tranmission
lines running through the parking lot. Cass & I were near the bathroom, and she decided to ask more questions with
her tools. She sensed a male spirit (I'm not sure if she concluded it was the father or the uncles), and it responded
that it was angry that we were that because we "might find out the truth".
Alyssa has a key to the spa next door so we moved the investigation to there. We found
a phone with a speaker that was making a loud humming sound, apparently part of the spa's paging systems. All EMF levels
were normal and constant through the spa with the exception of the north wall. The EMF readings along that wall in the
pedicure room were about 4mg and stayed constant over the entire wall and windows on that wall. The wall on the east
side of the room was at 2mg the first time I measured it, I checked the opposite side of the wall (the lobby side) and it
was also at 2mg. We spent more time measuring the north wall and then went out into the lobby. I measured the
wall running north/south between the lobby and the pedicure room and unlike the previous measurements at 2mg, it was now at
constant 4mg. We checked out the length of the north wall and readings were at 4mg, climbing to 5mg nearer the power
lines. We checked out the outside of the building, readings were slightly lower on that side of the wall, and we found
nothing outside that would explain the elevated readings.
While outside, we checked out the 'creepy tree'. The EMF readings were very high outside
due to the power lines but the EMF readings got higher as I walked closer to the tree. Later, I videotaped Cass near
the tree. She concluded that the tree had been alive when the women were murdered and that the murders took place approx.
80 feet from the tree.
Back inside, a few people noticed that the atmosphere felt oppresive. I personnaly felt
no change thoughout the evening. There were four of us left in the building (me, Richard, Laura, and Alyssa)
taking readings. Richard & I were taking readings in the bathroom and Alyssa was standing near the bathroom door
when I heard what sounded like a door closing from the direction of the north wall. Alyssa heard it too. I went
to that part of the building but found no out of the ordinary readings and nothing abnormal, besides the fact that there isn't
a door in that part of the building.
Later, we were all sitting in the chairs just outside the storage room. There were strange
sounds all around us, but mostly from the north section of the salon and on the roof. The noises on the roof were 2
different sounds, one sounded like footsteps or banging, the other like the roof moving, it reminded me of the sound a roof
makes when someone has just lifted their foot. The acoustics in the building are strange, and we often had different
opinions of just where a sound was coming from. I also noticed that the first time I heard the train, I thought it was
music or humming until I realized that the echo inside the building distorted the sound and made it sound funny.
Twice while we were sitting outside the storage room I saw reflections, or lights that made me
think a car was pulling into the parking lot. The first time I saw light reflections on the bottles on the wall and
I got up to see if there were any cars in the lot but there were none. The second time I saw Richard's face illuminated
by a light but thought it was imagination until Laura & Alyssa said they saw it too. It's possible the lights may
have been from headlights outside.
On one occasion while we were in the chairs near the storage room, the temperation on the meter
dropped a degree in about one minute and seemed to be colder near Richard who was in the chair closest to the storage room.
Laura & Richard felt a cold draft, I didn't, however I was wearing a heavy sweatshirt at the time, and through most of
the night. I removed my sweatshirt and while standing near the shampoo chair outside the bathroom door facing south,
my right arm and hand felt colder than my left. I also got goosebumps on my arm while standing in the lobby near the desk.
I am not convinced that my personal experiences of cold spots is anything out of the ordinary only because I always find it
difficult to stay warm and it's not unusual for me to feel cold when everyone is warm, however I was not the only one who
experienced the cold spots.
The building got very quiet and we hadn't heard noises for about 15 minutes when we decided
to pack up.
