The one EVP caught was taken from the basement.  It should be noted that no one was in the basement or surrounding area at the time that this EVP was recorded.
 
The previous owner of the house worked on wood projects in the basement before his death while his wife worked at a local nursing home.

During the investigation the temperature in the living room area by the television dropped.  The cold spot was located in a small area about 3 1/2 feet off the floor.  This was a result when a photograph was taken.

While heading into the basement, a noise was heard down the hall from what sounded like the bedroom.  The investigator took a photo immediately and when it was reviewed later, this was found.
