While no video evidence was captured, two strange EVP's were found from the recorder in the master bedroom.  The first was shortly after we placed the recorder by the television.  The second was later when no one was present upstairs and the television was off.
   Strange Sound
   Static
Many noises were able to be debunked.  Noises from the neighbors, on the other side of the wall by the stairs, was heard more clearly in the living room than by the stairs.  Other sounds were attributed to the age of the townhouse, the weather, and other things throughout the home.

Personal Experiences:
(Not Factual Proof)

1 ~ Two investigators commented on being shoved when in the upstairs hall beside the bathroom and daughter's bedroom doors.
2 ~ Numerous times through the coarse of the investigation, pennies were being "thrown around". By the end of the investigation, seven pennies had been found.  Two had hit two different investigators.  At one time during the night, one investigator watched as a penny started to roll away from the spot it was sitting in.
3 ~ One investigator, while sitting on a fold up bed, was almost folded up in the bed.  While sitting on the edge at the middle of the bed, it began folding up.  The only way investigators were able to do this again was when another investigator lifted the end of the bed up, fold it, and then pushed it down.
