I know everyone is waiting on my recap of last weekend’s tour and the Tans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum investigation, but I had been typing up the Ramona recap before I left. It’s just been a very busy month. Within the next few days I’ll get to TALA and the Inspired Ghost Tracking meet and greet. Also, I’ve put in for a casting call with a Telepictures paranormal show that is using some popularity voting elements. Please vote for me daily at: Reality Wanted (click here). For now, here’s the Ramona Theatre:
Thanks to our new Video Specialist, Ken Melton, we got the opportunity to be the first paranormal team to investigate the Ramona Theater in Frederick, Oklahoma. Yeah, it’s a bit of a throwback for me since I lived in Frederick, Maryland…
We had a full crew with us that evening with Cathy, Ken, Chris, Johnny, Jordan, special guest Mick, me, and Logan who arrived in the wee hours of the morning. Set up of the DVR system commenced just after the walking tour, placing it at the front of the balcony with cameras running both down to the stage and up to the projector both, eight in all. Once set up and a photo sweep performed, the investigation commenced.
We split into two teams with one starting in the projector room and the other starting under the stage, through the creepy trapdoor under the stairs that was almost like something out of Scooby-Doo. Right away we caught something interesting in my camera. Just after the trapdoor was lifted he caught an orb with substantial movement coming up from the stairwell. We usually discount most orbs as dust, but the significant movement of the anomaly in this photograph leads us to believe it may be something else.
Once below, a sweep was conducted for high electromagnetic fields, but were found save for the furnace and hot water tank. While conducting an EVP session to see if something would interact with us there were a couple small spikes on our K-II EMF detectors. A short while later, when the names of the former manager and his wife were mentioned, Johnny’s K-II spiked rather high.
Up in the projector booth, the team was busy chasing down a cold spot. Using a temperature gun supplied by Ken, at any given moment the area being measure would suddenly drop 10 degrees, and this unusual pocket seemed to move about the room. It’s believed that these cold spots are spirits drawing heat energy from the air as they try to manifest.
When we first start an investigation and are setting up, we send a number of photographs to our psychic, Vanessa, who “remote views” in to the location based on the image. In one particular photograph of the second level, she picked up on the fact that it was indeed the second floor, and she also stated we’d pick up activity in the room to the far left. When a small group of us entered that room later in the evening we did feel a heaviness about the room, but more telling was the crystal clear EVP (electronic voice phenomema) we picked up, “Can you help me?”
Given the acoustics of the building, there were many times we had to halt EVP sessions due to noise contamination from the other team all the way on the other side of the building. The latter part of the investigation consisted of three different groups heading into the building individually while the others waited outside. Johnny was the EVP king, having captured a number of interesting phrases including, “Hey,” “What else,” “All over the ground,” and, “Show the way.”
While it generally seemed to be a rather quiet night while we were there, save for the few incidents listed above, the evidence review has been rather enlightening between the EVPs captured, the moving orb photo, and correlating Vanessa’s findings with our personal experiences and the EVP captured in the room she said we’d get it. More on this investigation is to come…
