Note that this clip is considered doubtful by our team. We have explained the situation here.
This audio clip was recorded on July 28, 2012. We were trying to help a family that feared their apartment was haunted by ghosts that had apparently followed them from when they lived in an old farm house. I am calling this case "Unwanted Guests".
We had gotten EMF spikes from this chair on two different meters: a K2 and a Mel Meter. We decided to center our first EVP session of the evening around this chair.
This was the first "hard" EVP of the evening. Several times it seemed like there was something there, but nothing that I felt was solid enough to post.
The context of this EVP is that we had been doing a session in the chair - straight EVP work and a few thoughts and impressions expressed. We felt that we were talking to a little old lady.
I think she acknowledges us in this clip. You will hear investigator Teri Page say Bunny Pajamas (referring to a different ghost...not important) and then the homeowner repeats her. Then listen closely.
Here is the detail of the clip.
It's nice to be appreciated.
UPDATE: When I checked the video clip from this event, I found the same audio on the camera.
I am not dismissing it outright, but it is very unusual for an EVP to be recorded on more than one device. It would also be odd for us to have not heard the voice if it were in the audible sound range but it has happened before.
I am going to present the video clip and let you decide.
Here is what I know. It is not my voice. It is not the voice of either Teri, Anita, or the homeowner. That leaves the homeowner's son who was present. His voice is quite a bit deeper than what I am hearing in the clip. I will submit that teenage boys' voices can "crack". "Thank you" would have been out of context for the moment as there was nothing for him to thank anyone for.
But I will not withhold evidence that could lend doubt to the clip. Teri will be checking her audio and will post her opinion.
SECOND UPDATE: THIRD AUDIO SOURCE.
This is the clip from Teri's recorder. On it the voice sounds even MORE feminine.
Teri and I agree that this does not sound like the homeowner's teenage son at all. I have never documented a voice better and had less of an explanation. It should also be noted that while Teri's recorder was closer to the young man than the camera or my own recorder, the voice is softest on her recorder.
It does not fit the classic definition of an EVP. It is extremely rare to catch a true EVP on more than one device so clearly.
It does not fit the definition of a manipulated EVP. It may be possible for a spirit to manipulate sound waves in such a way as to get their message across. However, when this happens it is generally accepted that the voice would sound different on the different devices.
If this were a disembodied voice, it is hard to believe that no one in the room heard nor acknowledged it as clear as it is on the devices.
This case has produced some new angles that I need to consider.
