AAPI Investigation Update

October 31, 2008 on 2:27 pm | In Article | 2 Comments

Many of you are awaiting word of the AAPI (American Association of Paranormal Investigators) program and investigation, which was October 25, 2008 at the Sweetwater County Library. Well first let me say, I was very pleased with turn-out. According to our count there were around 140 people that attended the program. For our small area this is big. Thank you to all of you that attended.

The staff of AAPI, were happy to see so many of you. Because they are a non-profit organization and have come all this way, from the Denver area, it is nice to see people are interested in what you have to say. The three members of the team that presented are Stephen Weidner, Sharon Raines, and “Turtle” (yes, that is what he is called). Helping with the event were several members of SPIS (Sweetwater Paranormal Investigators), David , R. J., Hannah, and Brad.

I would like to send a heartfelt Thank You to all of the AAPI, SPIS, and Sweetwater County Library staff that helped to make this event so successful.

The evidence is now being analyzed and will not be available for some time. I have been asked to relay some of my findings, as this was my very first “Ghost Hunt”. I had never been a part of anything like this before and I was excited but apprehensive. One of my sons and I watch “Ghost Hunters” on the Sci-Fi Channel each Wednesday evening. It has become something of a family thing. I always figured that if I worked in a building that is said to be haunted and I maintain the Ghost Log here that I should at least try to educated myself as best I can. I try to understand what the investigators are doing and how they “debunk” the alleged claims.

During the presentation given by AAPI, I was please to learn that many of the tools and procedures are similar to what I have learned before. At least I am on the right path. I find that it if important to try to debunk or evaluate the findings, so that you are not just reporting every little thing as “ghostly activity”. Not every noise or item dropping is paranormal. Think about it….most is just common sense.

All of us have some intuition. Many cultures are more in-tune to their “inner eye”. For ghost hunting it seems we must use an open mind. We must allow our selves to be more aware of every sense and feeling. If you feel colder for no reason, this is noteworthy. If a cold spot moves and there is no reason, this is noteworthy. All the senses have to be opened up. If you sense there is something there, this I am told is when you want to have an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) recorder handy. Start asking questions and wait a minute to allow a response, and then continue.

We all have questions, we all want to know. AAPI and SPIS have completed their second investigations. Now we must give them time to analyze their findings. I was pleased to be part of the investigation and I hope we will remain in contact for some time. There are a lot of questions and it is good that we have them to go to.

I will report to you as soon as the report is made available to me.

Thanks for your interest.
