Image (above) provided by home owner. Unexplained to date is the image in the left hand corner. The only issue with the image is that it is bright, yet the image does not correspond to a light refraction, finger print, or other natural cause. It is a digital photograph (not a double exposure). Comparison of the image to the mother's picture (see investigation details below) indicates that the facial features are remarkably similar. The description of the mother's behavior, and that these are family members celebrating an event, indicates that this is an actual manifestation.
As we embark into Halloween 2014, do you have an explanation for this image? Is it a fluke? Or is this really proof from the other side?

Home owner inquiry and initial report:
1. Do you experience any of the following?
Feeling/touch: The sensation of being touched, caressed, tapped, or other physical contactVisual: Unexplained movement caught from the peripheral (corner of the eyes)Visual/physical: Apportation/asportation of objects (objects that disappear and reappear)Abnormal behavior of other electronics and computers.Sensations: uncomfortable feeling/discomfort in a particular room or at a particular time for an unknown reason?Sensation: Feeling watchedOther (please specify)Previously also experienced full manifestations of my mother, cold spots found only in a certain location, moving cold spots, wispy forms/white figures/shadows, doors opening and closing without assistance, doors locking and unlocking without assistance, and lights turning on/off for unknown reasons; none of these have occurred for over two years since I moved out of that house and into the home which was already owned by my current husband
2. If animals are in the vicinity, have they been observed (check all that apply):
Fleeing an areaLicking at the airWatching something unseenOtherbarking at something unseen; when we lived in my previous home, our pug would occasionally demonstrate sudden aggression or fear and appeared at times to be tracking something unseen
3. Have you experienced any of the following? Please check all that apply.
Expression of SLIder phenomena: SLIder stands for "Street Light Interference". This is paranormal activity relating to the living. Theoretically, SLIders are emitting a low grade of PK (psychokinetic) energy which interacts and interferes with electronic devices. SLIder phenomena includes street lights going off as a person walks by them, electronic devices constantly breaking when a person is near them or attempts to use them, watches dying, batteries dying at an abnormal rate, etc.
4. Is there any other phenomena that you have experienced that we did not ask you about? If so, please list and describe.
Frequent "orbs" in photos since October 2009, irrespective of camera used or photographer; two instances of apparitions captured in photos - would be interested in having your team review/analyze these as soon as possible - see additonal detail below
6. To your knowledge, did any of the following events happen on the property?
7. When was the property/location built? Was the location recently remodeled/refurbished? If so, when? Do you have any information on the history of the property?
my current home where I reside with my husband was built in 1990. He has owned this home for about 7 years and we have been in the process of remodeling for the past year. My husband may have some information on the history of the property or we might could learn more from our neighbor who has lived next door to our home since the neighborhood was about a year old.
Home owner documentation:
Feb. 21: Awakened between 2:15 – 2:25 by a low voice by my side of our bed that spoke a single but unintelligible word; stayed in bed for 5 – 10 minutes trying to relax and return to sleep. Got up and went to bathroom and had an eerie feeling of being watched until I returned to bed, with this feeling strongest near where I’d heard the voice. My husband was asleep and did move in the bed just after I returned to bed. (Later that night he felt something poke/push his arm with moderate pressure).
Week of 3/26: My husband awakened me in the middle of the night very upset….he was sitting upright in the bed and shaking me, pointing to something just beyond my side of the bed, saying “Martha, move NOW…there’s someone next to you and raising their arm….MOVE NOW”….I turned to where he was pointing and say nothing. He was still convinced, and very upset, so I turned on the light and there was nothing there but the swing-arm lamp. My husband is always calm and relaxed…I’ve never seen him this frightened.
3/29: I was alone in the house around 8:15 pm working on documentation for our income tax filing and my husband was out running errands. I smelled smoke so strongly that I got up from the sofa twice to investigate….there was no smell of smoke anywhere else in the house, garage, or yard.
Brandy: Paranormal Puck chatty; EMF ranged from 1.34 to 2.09.to 3.54 Temp recorded at 78. Saw animals, not in distress.
Walk through: Went to the MA bedroom, baby’s room, and living room.
MA bedroom: Beth had a male entity with the Roosevelt time period. Searching for something with a box-like storage/lid. Brandy: scent of some sort – lilac? Heard a sign and a “no” or “milk” word.
Baby’s room: Quiet. Aromas smelled by Beth and Brandy. Sweet smelling perfume.
Living room: One investigator sensed a female presence, grey/white hair, brown eyes, 5 foot 5 inches. Years or (death, 84) birth (21).
Home owner confirmed that her mother was the one described in the living room.

3. What phenomena did you experience on this investigation? (Please check all that apply)
Other (please specify below)bright flashes of light in master bedroom - couldn't determine if it could have been a passing car.
4. In review of the footage, recording, or photographs taken at the location, which of the following did you find? (Please check all that apply)
Orb images (digital)
5. Please post investigation notes here. Please quantify it with the following categories: Sensitive or Technical. Please end your notes with your general overall observations of the investigation. Include information that you have learned from the reveal session.
Technical: EMF was normal through out house. I'm still a little puzzled by the flashes of light that I saw in MBR. They were very bright. If it were a care I would think it would follow the same path, which these did not. Saw over the bed, in a corner on ceiling and above another investigator. Homeowners have not seen this, so I'm not sure what to make of it.
6. Rate the level of perceived haunted activity of this location, rank it 0 - 5.
1: Residue haunting (Mild) [Some information validiated, some unable to validate]
7. What issues does the review team need to address with the occupant (homeowner, business owner, resident)? What aspects of the investigation need to be re-addressed, retested, or clarified? Does this investigation require an immediate recheck?
I do not think an immediate recheck is necessary.
Brandy's Report:Due to family emergency, I am submitting this report via written means rather than survey.Nothing came of the EVPs, the digital (IR) photographs, or the Paranormal Puck. This family has a very unusual paranormal photograph. It is one that I cannot explain. I have ruled out smudges, light refraction, shutter speed, and, as far as I can tell, photo manipulation. It is not a double negative. The image is a digital photograph that was taken of family members during a graduation ceremony. The image appears on the left hand side of the picture. It is a black-and-white face. Though the details are not crystal clear, the image is enough to see the face without suggestion. The only issue with the photograph is that it appears to be slightly overexposed (i.e., photograph was taken in the light or in sunlight). However, the brighter nature of the photograph does not explain the image. When we were doing the investigation the home owner pulled out a photograph of her mother. The image is surprisingly that of the face in the photograph. The hairline, placement of eyes, bridge of nose, length of nose, and the jaw line matches the woman's face. At this time, I cannot find a reasonable natural cause for this image and I believe that it is authentic. There is a second photograph taken by another family member that is also unusual, but I am less convinced. There is a definite light issue in this photograph with possible light refraction.During the investigation I thought I heard both the word "no" (or "milk") and a male voice that signed. Upon review of the EVPs I have determined that the first was created by an outside noise. I believe that this will disqualify the sigh as a possible autosuggestion.I did have an experience in which I twice smelled a sweet perfume. The exact description, as recorded, is that it lasted for the span of an inhalation. There were candles in the rooms, though there were others in the house in general. The candles were not lit, the aromas did not match what I smelled, and they did not have a strong enough smell to reach across the room to where I was. The SPIRITS are not to wear perfume when on investigation. The home owner did confirm that her mother did wear "White Shoulders" -- a sweet smelling perfume. Several members claimed to see a bright light in the MA bedroom. We did close the window blinds, though the light appeared again with the front blind closed. I am still in the mindset that it was a light reflection. There was a third window above us without a shade and near to the ceiling. We could not cover it and it did leave light exposure. If that had been covered and the blinds down on the other two windows I might have been more accepting of something unknown happening.
