The team started 2023 with their first residential case of the new year. Many things were going on in SS's home prior to the investigation. During the investigation, the team seemed to have captured a lot of paranormal activity in various parts of the house where the client suggested setting up their equipment. From 7:00-11:00 PM various rempods were set off in various rooms, to voices captured on the NVR/voice recorders, their new thermal photos e to motion sensor balls going off in a bedroom upstairs the home appears to be very haunted. Phantom Detectives LLC classifies this home as an intelligent haunting. This was due to the activity escalating in all parts of the house. Several of SS's grandchildren have also seen and heard things within the house. For now, the team will continue to monitor the activity in the coming months ahead and maintain contact with SS.
Case 014 - DH’s Home
DH's home was the most extreme case of paranormal activity ever established in the team's history. It required each member of the team to bless themselves, burn sage, and say the lord's prayer. During this investigation many EVPS were captured, several thermal images were caught, SLS camera images were caught, to various pieces of equipment going off it appears whatever was in the house was very demonic in nature. From what the team was able to conclude spirits appeared to have been brought from another dimension and were conjured up from somewhere. After the investigation both Psychic Medium/Case Manager Melissa Ferrazzano and Lead Investigator/Tech Manager Rick Warner were able to remove any negative presences that were harming this family. They poured holy water and burned sage in every room that they could. So far, the homeowners report that whatever was haunting them is no longer present in the house. The team will continue to exchange correspondence with DH to see if they are needed to return to cleanse the home again.
Case 013 - Lightship Overfalls
The Lightship Overfalls is known to be a floating lighthouse on the water. In the past it was used by the US Coast Guard at various points of its existence. It appears to be very active to this day. Various people that tour the ship often see figures still walking the Lightship at Night, hearing voices, and more. Phantom Detectives LLC was able to determine the most active parts of the ship including the Crew Quarters, the Captain's Cabin, and the Utility area. Unfortunately, due to rain the team was unable to investigate outside of the ship. The team captured several SLS Images, a thermal image, several EVPS, and we will continue to monitor the activity. One of those EVPS captured said "Hello Help Me." If the activity escalates MS can call the team back to do another investigation at any time. Phantom Detectives LLC would like to thank MS and his staff for the opportunity they were given. After the investigation, the team was featured in the Cape Gazette, and WRDE Coast AM.
Case 012 Poplar Hill Mansion.
Poplar Hill Mansion appears to be a very active place on all 4 floors of the mansion. The entire town of Salisbury, MD was built around this home. The nursery room upstairs where the servant burnt her dress appears to be the most active room in the house. From the numerous EVPS, to the Para Lantern going off, to the thermal images captured, there appears to be an intelligent haunting. There appears to be nothing negative residing within the walls of Poplar Hill Mansion. Most of the spirits here are very welcoming and want their stories to be told. Phantom Detectives LLC will continue to coordinate with SM over email to see if any activity has increased.
Case 011 - JH's Place
JH’s farm is very active in the barn, outside, inside the house itself. The paranormal activity here is nonstop. In addition, there appears to be many layers of history here. These are from spirits that once lived in the late 1800's, 1970's, and 1980's. After the team conducted the investigation, various SLS captures in the barn, to the Greysen Box 2.0 going off, to the EMF spikes in the living room, to the shadow detector going off, and much more. There appears to be an intelligent haunting here along with having many decades of history behind it. The spirits here appear very at peace with themselves, and really want to continue to let the homeowner know of their presence. For now, the team will continue to check in with JH and will come back for a 2nd investigation if the paranormal activity in the home escalates. Phantom Detectives LLC will be conducting their 12th investigation on September 24, 2022, at the Poplar Hill Mansion in Salisbury, MD for Worlds Largest Ghost Hunt.
Case 010 Bube's Brewery
The Bube's Brewery investigation captured the most evidence yet on the camera end. From that investigation, the team captured four thermal camera images, several SLS Camera images captured, to the S-Box malfunctioning in The Catacombs, many EMF spikes on the K2/Trifield EMF meters, to the tripwire EMF changing multiple colors, to the lighted dowsing rods responding to questions from Mr. Warner. It appears the Brewery is still active every day. Phantom Detectives LLC classifies Bube’s Brewery as an intelligent haunting where the spirits there want their story to be told. The team will continue to monitor the paranormal activity at the Brewery and maintain contact with their colleagues from Jott-Nyx Paranormal. Our many thanks to Melissa, Jerry, and the entire Jott-Nyx Paranormal team for giving us this opportunity.
Case 009 Van Sant Covered Bridge "Crybaby Bridge"
On their 9th investigation Phantom Detectives LLC captured an EVP, a thermal image, and got numerous responses on their new lighted dowsing rods. It appears that the young mother who took her life in the 1800's still resides at the bridge. In addition, the spirits of horse thieves who were once hanged there reside there as well.There appears to be an intelligent haunting at this location, and the team will continue to keep close tabs on it. Some of the investigation techniques the team learned on this investigation will be implemented into their 10th investigation at Bubs Brewery on May 27, 2022.
Case 008 Ashtons Residence
In conclusion it appears that Ashton’s home is very active in the basement, the master bedroom, and in the child’s room. From the team’s perspective there appears to be an intelligent haunting that is direclty interacting with the homeowners. The spirit of a little boy in the child’s room, the older woman spotted in the master bedroom, and the older gentleman in the basement who is a bit on the stern side all have been seen/heard by the team. From the SLS camera photos, to various knocks/bangs, and various pieces of equipment going of this home appears to be haunted. Phantom Detectives LLC doesn’t feel that a cleansing is needed at this time, but the team will continue to monitor the situation if the activity escalates.
Case 007 White Chimneys
White Chimneys appeared to live up to its reputation as being a very haunted location. That night the team investigated spirit voices that were recorded on our S-Box Ghost Box, Voice recorders, and two thermal camera images were captured. It appears that White Chimneys has an intelligent haunting behind it. The spirits here are very welcoming and do not pose any dangerous threat to the client, her father, and her children. Over the past few years, there has been a lingering smell of tobacco throughout the house, but it appears and reappears at random. Phantom Detectives LLC would like to thank our client, who is a friend of our founder’s sister.
Phantom Detectives LLC would like to come back in the future when the time is right to see if the activity has changed.
Case 006 Sanderson Museum National Ghost Hunting Day
The team’s second ever investigation at Sanderson Museum in Chadds Ford, PA produced some outstanding results for National Ghost Hunting Day. Three EVPS captured in different rooms of the museum, numerous SLS camera photos, along with more evidence rolling in from the team’s Zosi DVR camera. PDLLC will be returning here in the future to conduct another investigation for their YouTube channel this time. But the next investigation might not come until lead investigator Zahorcak returns from her trip to Tennessee in July 2022. Every room in the museum is very active and the spirits haunting the museum want to keep their history known to everyone that visits. From the team’s research and most recent investigation there appears to be no residual haunting here. It is clearly an intelligent haunting. The most likely spirits haunting the museum are Andrew Wyeuth, Christian Sanderson, and Hannah Christian's mother who died in the downstairs room in 1943.
Case 005 John's Apartment
From the EVP captured saying "Right Here, to the image on the team’s thermal camera, to the pictures caught by John on his security cameras his apartment appears to be very active. The most alarming thing is that the two female spirits, and the 19-year-old man spirit appear to have drained the life out of all four team members. All four members reported feeling tired after the investigation, and several needed holy water to purify themselves after the investigation. It is recommended to Mr. Carty that he uses sage to cleanse the place, or holy water to remove anything evil that might be at his apartment. The apartment seems to be most active in John's bedroom, and his living room. Phantom Detectives LLC will be available to come cleanse the place anytime he needs it if needed. Until then team will continue to monitor John's apartment and will be on call if he needs it.
Case 004 Selma Mansion
From the moment the team stepped into Selma Mansion the activity here was starting the moment they arrived. From the SLS camera photos, ghost box voices, 4k camera captures,
thermal evidence, and DVR imagery captured it seems that the Selma Mansion is a continually active location. From the third floor to the basement, it appears to be loaded with many spirits from many different time periods. The team believes it has captured strong circumstantial evidence that Selma Mansion has a lot of intelligent residual energy within it. Psychic Medium Melissa Ferrazzano's readings about the connection between General Andrew Porter and Mary Todd Lincoln were spot on. In the future, Phantom Detectives LLC hopes to come back for another investigation when the time is right.
Case 003 Betsy Ross House
Results: Based upon the two thermal images captured, the two electronic voice phenomena captured, the SLS camera images captured, and the motion censored devices going off on their own the team believes that it has captured legit paranormal activity at the Betsy Ross House. Hopefully, the team’s investigation will here help Historic Philadelphia know what they are dealing with in terms of knowing how to deal with these spirits. In addition, the team will be glad to come back for another investigation in the future. Future teams that investigate here, may want to check out the team’s website on how to properly structure their investigation. It is extremely dangerous to go into the basement alone. The Phantom Detectives recommens that Historic Philadelphia get the basement area cleansed as soon as possible. This can be done by sage, and by a priest if they are available to come to the house. Every team member will be here to assist future teams that may investigate the house if needed.
Case 002 Mill of Anselma
In their 2nd investigation ever as the Phantom Detectives the team seemed to do very well. The Mill of Anselma seems to be continually active on all three levels of it. The Phantom Detectives caught audio on their voice recorders, images on our thermal camera, images from their Zosi DVR camera, video on the DVR system, and got direct hits on their SLS camera. . Next time the team is hoping to go back with team medium Mark Anthony the Psychic Lawyer to document what he can pick up at the Mill. Chaires and Zahorcak plan on asking Mr. Anthony to use his skills in psychometry to tell the story of the Mill without knowing none of its history. Chaires will sit at the DVR station and check the Mill’s history with Mr. Anthony’s impressions. It will be interesting to see what the team’s medium will pick up during the next investigation there later this year. In addition, Chaires is hoping to see if Mr. Anthony can pick anything up through automatic writing. Perhaps there will be more spirits there that would like to communicate with the team during the next investigation
Case 001 Sanderson Museum
-The team seemed to capture quite a bit of evidence during their first solo investigation Sanderson Museum. Many SLS Camera photos taken were the best pieces of evidence that the team captured during the investigation. The EVP’s captured will be posted on our EVP section on the team's website. In addition many words from the Ovilus 5 seemed to capture quite a few words that dealt with past events at Sanderson Museum. Currently the DVR System seemed to capture a ton of evidence that we will need to go through further. Sanderson Museum seems to be continually active in the violin room, and in the room where Christian Sanderson’s mother died in 1947. In our opinion it seems that Sanderson Museum has an intelligent haunting behind it. Overall the team got direct responses on their voice recorders, hits on the SLS camera, responses on the SB11, and our team has learned a lot from their first investigation ever.
