Background and claims:
The home was built in 1924 and sits on an old War of 1812 battleground and across the street from an old cemetery.
Activity usually occurs in the basement commencing at 8:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. on the other floors. The dog would not eat several days until food dish relocated. Residents have seen a partial image of a man and have had their pocket reached into. The closet door in daughter’s room closed on its own and voices of women in the basement. The son hears a woman’s voice and the family reports feelings of being watched in the kitchen and upstairs hallway
• Investigators: John, Kellie, Ryan, Joe and T3
• Temperature: 43 F; Inside 65F-70F
• Sky Conditions: Partially cloudy
• Time 7:30 pm – 1 am
• Date 11/02/2012
The investigation consisted of two teams.
Team One: John, Joe, and Tim
Team Two: Kellie, Ryan, and Lisa
During the investigation of team one in the basement, footsteps were heard on 1st floor (Team 2 was on the second floor the entire time). During a flashlight EVP session, multiple meters and flashlights responded to many of the questions asked. Based on the answers received, it is believed that we made contact with an older woman (possibly elderly) that lived in the home within the past five (5) years. She loved her home and likes what Lisa is doing to the home in regards to renovations and upkeep. A black shadow was seen moving in one of the back rooms.
Team two conducted a ‘flashlight’ EVP session in the basement. This is done by loosening the battery cap of the flashlight so that a simple tap on the flashlight would turn the light on and off. They also received multiple spikes on their meters however not many correlated with the questions being asked. The meters, especially the K-2 seemed to respond frequently when bronchitis, asthma or any other respiratory illness was discussed. Investigator Kellie began getting a headache almost immediately upon entering the basement. She is EMF sensitive however the basement upon recording base readings beforehand only registered a very low EMF in the area of which she was sitting. Investigator Ryan, midway through the session, had to leave the house due to feelings of dizziness. At 11:20 p.m. one of the digital recorders turned off by itself and at 11:13 p.m., after asking for the name of the spirit present, Kellie heard an audible whistle coming from the same back room in which a shadow was spotted by the previous team.

Team two received flashlight responses when inquiring about anything related to the military. There were flashlight responses and K-2 hits which alluded to some sort of connection to the war of 1812. No other activity or evidence was reported in this location
Master Bedroom -No activity or evidence was reported in this location.
Back Living Room -The back living room was investigated by the entire team in one session at the very end of the night. We received a few K-2 hits and flashlight responses but nothing that could lead us to any conclusions. They did not seem to correlate with our line of questioning. It is interesting to note that although the investigation session in this area of the house yielded no intelligent responses and/or evidence this seemed to be a hot spot of activity as the majority of our EVPs were captured in there during the time when the team was making their initial greetings and setting up cameras, grids and motion sensors throughout the house.
Video Evidence Obtained During Investigation

After careful review of all video, audio and photographs taken it is the belief of the Motor City Ghost Hunter team that there is paranormal activity at this location.
The location of the house, which sits on what used to be a battlefield, is rich with history and unfortunately has seen more than its share of deaths. The house is also located across from a cemetery and the client has a vocational history of working with sick (and in some cases dying) veterans, many of which have/had various forms of cancer. We believe that the spirits of past veterans are still trying to contact her for help.
We believe that one of the spirits present is that of a military man. This is based on the various responses to the flashlights, K-II and Ovilus.
Another spirit which we made contact with is that of an older woman who seems localized in the basement. She is connected to the home and likes the client and her family as well as all of the work they are doing to restore the home.
In an attempt to make the occupants more at ease a smudging of the home was conducted a few weeks later by a team of our investigators.
We do not believe that there is anything at the location that is dangerous or harmful. We believe the spirits are only contacting the client for help and the family is not in any danger. However, if needed, we would be happy to return for a second investigation and smudging.
