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.

So I’ve been kicked really hard in recent days with this sickness that has been going around. I haven’t had the energy to do much of anything, including sitting at the computer. And recently I haven’t blogged as often as usual. So…. let me make it up to you with a few audio artifacts from two different investigations where the review is somewhat ongoing.
For those who may not be familiar with my EVP… I prefer to categorize many of them as simply “Artifacts” or “Possible EVP”, because most of the time I simply cannot be 100% sure that what I’m hearing is paranormal.
The unenhanced audio artifact below was captured at Fort Chaffee Prison during a joint investigation. At the time this was captured (12:15am), we were packing up from our session in the max security building in the cell where an infamous inmate hanged himself. I asked Dar (JPRS founder) what a particular object in the room was and she said she had no idea. It was already in the cell. As soon as she says “I ain’t touchin’ it” you hear what sounds like a strange voice saying “who cares”.
This next unenhanced audio artifact is from another joint investigation, this time at the Carthage Opera House. This one still boggles me. I can’t decide what I’m hearing. A smaller group of us were investigating what would have been the backstage area of the opera house. At 11:10pm I was preparing to play some trigger music from the time period the opera house built and in business. You will hear two possible EVP behind our voices while setting up to play the music. The first possibly says “sorry”. Could this be the voice of one of us investigators? Doesn’t at all have the sound quality of any of our voices, but it’s just not something that I can say for sure. The second possible EVP is perhaps a child’s voice. This is important because there have been previous reports of people hearing a child’s voice in this building. I believe we have evidence of this voice in other artifacts from the same investigation as well.
On the eve the election, it’s very fitting that I present to you…. um… some highlights from an investigation? Sure. Sounds good. 🙂
On Saturday August 4th, I was once again invited by Joplin Paranormal Research Society (JPRS) to be apart of a joint investigation of the Carthage Opera House (or Burlingame and Chaffee Opera House) in Carthage, Missouri. My friends at JHPS were invited as well. It was a very hot night and I remember it well. I have only recently begun reviewing my audio and video, but JPRS is way ahead of me and they’ve found some pretty amazing evidence. Dar has put together some of this evidence in a great video. It makes me really excited to get deep into my review.

I have to tell you, the video footage of the lightning through the windows is totally mine! 🙂 So you’ll probably see it again when I put my own video together.
Here’s another much longer video that includes some evidence from Spirit Box sessions (Ghost Box). Dar is the Ghost Box master…
The really awesome sunset that we captured after dinner tonight.
I feel like I need to give my readers a little update on what’s going on in my crazy paranormal world at the moment…
I’m excited and honored to have been asked to participate in some joint EVP experiments in the next several days. This invitation comes from an experienced researcher whom I have a lot of respect for. I hope to keep you informed whenever it’s possible.
Marilyn and I have conducted and documented two séances in the last few weeks. I’m in the middle of analysis on the first one right now. I hope to have some video highlights or a report of that very cool experience posted soon.
MOSS Investigation Reports
I’m a little behind in posting final MOSS investigation reports with evidence online. I hope to do that soon. The reports have been completed, but there is a lot to do to make them appropriate for online viewing. These include reports from the joint investigation of the Fort Chaffee Prison and a recent private residence investigation. The analysis of my part of the Carthage Opera House investigation is ongoing.
My Spooky Fall Movie Progress
Soon I’ll watch The Innocents and let you know how it was. Check out the list of movies I’ve been watching this fall.
And Finally… LIFE!
Yes… the real job has prevented me from locking myself in the house and being a practicing paranormal researcher/investigator/blogger recluse for as much as I’d like… but one can dream though, right? 🙂

Once again, I was fortunate enough to be invited by the Joplin Paranormal Research Society on another exciting joint investigation. This time I (representing MOSS) joined JPRS and JHPS at an old opera house in Carthage, Missouri on a very stormy evening. It is a beautiful building with an interesting history and was built between 1877-1878. It doesn’t really resemble an opera house today, but it was fun to imagine. And as you can tell from our glistening faces, it was also very, very, VERY HOT!
Team members are just getting started with evidence review, but I’m hearing some interesting things already. Stay tuned. For now, enjoy a few pictures from the very stormy evening.
