Location:

Potter Street Depot


Investigators: 

Bryce Martin, Taylor Keysor, Mike Leppek, Jordan LaForest, Jon Girvan, Jared Grim, Matt Brown (Equipment Tech) Kyle Casey (Guest Investigator.)


Equipment: 

Seven voice recorders, three IR cameras with lights, Emf meter, Kii meter, two IR thermometers, geophone, em pump, spirit box, dvr system with four static IR cameras. 


Claims: 

Members of the buildings staff have seen figures/ apparitions, seen things move, heard things, and even been touched by things all over the building. The owners decided to leave it up to us to establish our own paranormal "hot spots" in this case so didn't tell us exactly where these claims took place at. They did however; tell us they see a "woman in white."


Summary of Investigation: 

We started at 9:30 pm in two groups of two and one of three. Matt Brown was back at base camp. Our four static cameras were in various locations throughout the building. Taylor and Jordan headed into the women's waiting room where they thought they witnessed an odd shadow play blocking out the ambient light from the doorway. Mike and Jared were in the men's waiting room where they experienced no known activity. Bryce, Jon, and Kyle were in the coffin maker room/restaurant and maintenance room/ back hallway. Kyle experienced what looked like a shadow under the door leading to the outside in the back hallway. There was no one outside at this time. At about 10:30 we regrouped and Kyle and Bryce headed into the men's waiting room where they experienced a phenomenon of hearing noises and the flashlight turning on upon their command. Jordan and Jon went to the restaurant and back hallway area where they experienced no known activity. Mike and Jared were in the women's waiting room where they also had something turn the flashlight on and off on command not long after Kyle and Bryce had the same phenomenon happen to them. Taylor sat with Matt at base camp during this time. At 11:30 the team took a fifteen minute break and then resumed investigating around 11:45. Bryce and Kyle headed into the women's waiting room where they tried to communicate with the "woman in white," who is seen in there. Bryce ended up getting a couple different scratches on his arm. Mike and Jared were in the restaurant/ back hallway, where they got some intelligent responses on the Kii meter. Jordan and Jon went into the men's waiting room where they experienced no known activity. Taylor sat back at base camp with Matt again. Taylor and Jon went into the women's waiting room where they may have had something respond once more by using the flashlight. They also think they may have heard footsteps. Mike and Jordan went into the men's waiting room where they experienced no known activity. Kyle and Bryce headed into the freight room where they experienced a cold breeze go through them and also had a light behind them start to move. Jared sat with Mat at home base at this time. At 1:30 am we regrouped once more. Bryce and Taylor went to the women's waiting room where they experienced no known activity. Mike and Jon were in the men's waiting room where they experienced no known activity. Jordan, Jared, and Kyle were in the restaurant/ back hallway and freight room where they experienced no known activity. At 2:00 am we wrapped up our investigation.


Evidence Collected During Investigation: 

During our investigation we caught eight evps. A couple of them are inaudible whispering. The next one responds to an investigator saying "yes." There were a few that were very clear they say; "boo," "heavy," and "you stop I'm under." We caught another one that responds to an investigator. Although it is not completely clear, it may say "do we?" The last one isn't really an evp but sounds like something very large falling. No one was present in the room at the time and nothing falling was caught on camera. Along with the evps we also caught a couple videos. Kyle, our guest investigator, got something to respond to him a couple times by using knocking sounds. Not long after that Kyle and Bryce caught an entity responding to them using a rigged flashlight set up on the ground. Not long after that Jared and Mike caught something responding to them using a rigged flashlight in another room over. Bryce also received a couple scratches on his arm during the investigation in the women's waiting room.


Conclusion of Investigation:

We believe that due to the amounts of activity at this location we caught enough evidence to deem this location haunted. We also believe that the entity there is intelligent and there are possibly multiple entities there. None of these entities appear to be dangerous or hostile in any way.


Any Experiences Since Investigation: 

They have heard knocking as well as footsteps. They also have heard voices and see shadows under the door quite a bit.


Summary of Review: 

Jared and Bryce went to the location and showed three of the workers there the evidence they caught. They were all impressed with the evidence, but not surprised because of all the activity they have witnessed there. Upon concluding the reveal the three clients as well as Bryce and Jared all heard what sounded like a voice coming from the corner of the room they were in. This voice was caught on recorder as well. After this we concluded the reveal.


Additional Thoughts: 

Great location with a lot of history and a great investigation. Everything went smoothly and we came to a solid conclusion. Still if the opportunity arose we would be more than happy to return.
