Papa Jack’s Pizza: Final Investigation Report

Papa Jack’s Pizza resides in a building that was constructed in 1869 on historic Main Street in Lexington, Missouri.

I’ve mentioned MOSS’s fascinating investigation of Papa Jack’s Pizza in Lexington, Missouri several times recently. It has taken months to complete the analysis and get to the point where I could present this report to you. For the first time ever, I’ve decided to publish the entire investigation report document for this investigation. I debated back and forth on whether or not this was a wise decision, but in the end I decided to just do it. When you click on the link below, it will open up the 27 page PDF file through Google Docs and will have all audio and video artifacts linked in the document. We’d like to thank Jamie and Kathy at Papa Jack’s for allowing us to have this opportunity.

Analysis Timeline: Okay so maybe I am a little ridiculous…

Just some random thoughts tonight. In an earlier post, I had show-and-tell and shared with you a little of my process of putting together a rough analysis of a paranormal investigation. Well… I added a step and tried something new this time around. And I’m not going to lie… I’m kind of realizing how ridiculous I get sometimes. Sometimes I’m too OCD and detailed for my own good. This took me a few days. Helpful? Yes. But it took a lot of time… and so now I still have to finish up the evidence and final report. I’m not sure I’d be able to finish up an entire investigation, analysis, and report for a location on a time limit. 🙂 I need to hire assistance. 

So I went from 19 pages of this (rough analysis)…

Same rough analysis from my recent post.

 ...and created 24 pages of this!

The new timeline analysis that I'm trying for the first time.

Everything from the rough analysis in a timeline. Now you can see all “events” from every area and piece of equipment in a timeline, so that one could compare the “events” that happen at roughly the same moment. Too much? Ah… maybe I’m just stalling because I know a lot of work is still ahead of me. Perhaps it’s like when I was growing up. I HATED homework and studying… but I LOVED office supply stores and playing school! 🙂

Back to work… 

 


Putting Together a Rough Analysis of a Paranormal Investigation…

So honestly, I had no idea what to post or blabber on about today. In the last week I’ve been pushing hard trying to make some progress on the analysis of MOSS’s last paranormal investigation, so a lot of my focus has been in that world. So I kind of decided since my brain is there, I’ll blab about that and how I put together an analysis and report… that is, if anyone cares. 🙂

This particular investigation was almost two months ago, so it has taken many weeks and hours of digging through, watching, listening, and comparing hours of footage and audio. We used 3 digital audio recorders, 3 camcorders, and 4 DVR cameras. I have 19 pages of data and analysis, which reads sort of like a transcript of the evening. As of right now I’ve finished my rough analysis of everything, with the exception of the 4 DVR videos. I always save those for last.

Below is a screen shot of a portion of that 19-page rough analysis. Initially, I begin with all of my audio recorders. I not only listen for EVP, but I document events as I hear them, including EMF readings, temperature readings, weird sounds, personal experiences, etc. And for all of these events, I time stamp them to the nearest minute, if at all possible. I also just recently began highlighting and color coding the time stamp for individual devices, so that I can easily refer to any file from that moment. This is probably what takes most of the time. I go through video the same way, simply adding to the same document in chronological order. You’ll notice that in one of the events that took place at 2:03am, I included text in bold and italic, explaining that I have found an explanation for that event. This often happens when I get to any of the video files and I can see exactly what is going on and compare.

So this is where I am now. I haven’t saved any files or artifacts. I haven’t done a lot of enhancing audio. From here, I’ll save this analysis as a new file and dig deeper. Some things will disappear if they’ve been explained. I’ll summarize some of the redundant events, and figure out what events warrant becoming an “artifact” of paranormal or possible paranormal events. I number and code these artifacts and list them in this new document, which will end up being the final report for the client. I’ll add pre-investigation readings of each area (EMF, temperature, and barometric pressure), hour-by-hour weather information for that location, lunar and solar information from that date, and usually a short summary of my thoughts and findings.

So as you can see, this is why I have no life. Soon I hope to share some of the findings and details of the investigation. But for now, if you’re still reading, thanks for stopping by for show and tell. 🙂  

 


Carthage Opera House Investigation Report & Evidence…

The 8/4/12 Carthage Opera House investigation was my second joint investigation with the Joplin Paranormal Research Society (JPRS) and J H Paranormal Seekers (JHPS). Like the Fort Chaffee Prison investigation before it, analysis and review of this investigation has been a big undertaking. It is still somewhat a work in progress, however, I’m excited to finally share my report and most of my evidence with you.

Fort Chaffee Prison Investigation Report & Evidence…

You probably remember me blogging about some of the great experiences I’ve had while investigating with my friends from JHPS and Joplin Paranormal Research Society (JPRS). Dar with JPRS has been nice enough to invite me (representing Missouri Spirit Seekers) along to some cool places. The 5/12/12 Fort Chaffee Prison investigation was my first joint investigation. Analysis and review of this investigation has been a big undertaking. It is still somewhat a work in progress as JPRS is still completing their review. However, I’m excited to finally share my report and most of my evidence with you.
