ESPI Case File #061709 - Private Residence (Tulsa, OK)

June 17th, 2009 

Reason for Investigation: ESPI was contacted about doing an investigation at Lori and Rob’s house after Lori had visited Earth and Soul and mentioned some of the paranormal activity going on at their home. They were remodeling the house and had only started staying at it for the last few days. Claims of activity included shadows, the radio changing stations on its own and making odd popping sounds, a toy talking without anyone touching it, doors shutting and locking on their own, cold spots, pet acting strange, and feelings of uneasiness in certain rooms.


Field Statistics:

  • Start Time: 6:30 PM
  • Solar Ray: Normal
  • Geomagnetic Field: Quiet
  • Temperature: 94 degrees
  • Humidity: 52%
  • Wind: S 13 mph
  • Moon: Waning Gibbous, 30% of Full
  • Type: Indoor Investigation

Conditionals: Air conditioning and radio turned on during various parts of the investigation. Homeowners smoked inside during various times of the night, but later moved outside. The clients' dog was also moving freely about in the house during the investigation.



Investigation: Around 9:00 PM Beckie set up a motion sensor along the wall next to the garage door off the spare bedroom. 

At 9:10 PM Beckie placed some paper and crayons on the floor in Rob’s room and some paper and crayons on a shelf in the entertainment room. Neither experiment yielded any results.

Around 9:30 PM in the kitchen, Lori got the chills and goosebumps all over her skin.

At 9:35 PM in the entertainment room, it was discovered that the paint swatches were scattered across the carpet when they had not been only a little while earlier. However, this could be attributed to Caesar the dog walking in the room over the swatches and possibly moving them about in the process. Some glittery stickers were also on the floor, which Lori felt certain she had put in the box sitting right next to them.

At 11:10 PM in the spare bedroom the motion sensor was triggered by Lori’s dog, Caesar. Caesar had entered the room and set off the sensor as he walked by and went up to the bed. At first he just stood at the bed on his hind legs, his front paws resting on the mattress as he appeared to be looking at something on the bed. But then he actually jumped on the bed, which Lori found to be odd behavior since she said he only jumps on furniture when someone else is sitting there. Caesar did not stay there long and left the room. Nancy then took pictures in the room and caught some orbs next to bed. Beckie used her EMF detector to measure any unusual readings, however it remained on Safe (0-2.5 Milli Gauss).

At 10:43 PM while in the kitchen, Lori heard a popping sound coming from what she thought was either one of the bedrooms or bathroom.

10:47 PM from inside the kitchen Lori said she saw a shadow dart past by the front door in the living room.

At 11:06 PM Aaron witnessed Rob move his work radio and it changed from a rock station to a country station on its own - something Rob and Lori had claimed had happened a lot. To demonstrate that it was not caused by moving it, Rob slammed his durable work radio to the floor a couple times and it did not change stations.

Around 12:14 AM Beckie saw a round light fly across the ceiling during her EVP session.

Around 12:25 AM after explaining to the spirits why Lori and Rob were remodeling the house and that they were going to be moving in and living there Lori became very uncomfortable and said she was hearing “No, no, no” in her head. She then had to get up and leave the room and go outside. Later she told us that she had felt what she described as an electric current in her chest and something pushing up against her.

Please note that ESPI does not rely or make conclusions based solely on what are possibly psychic feelings and/or impressions. We do, however, note and document them in case they do turn out to be connected to something paranormal.


The investigation of Lori and Rob’s home was interesting. There were a few personal experiences during the night, but most of the more unusual things came from the possible evidence we gathered. We collected many EVPs, although the majority of them were not very clear. However, after listening to them we were able to make out names that were later verified by the clients as names of some of their deceased relatives. We did research and find the names of the previous owners and occupants of the home, but we could not positively tie any of their names to our EVPs. We also captured some interesting photos. The house was in the process of being remodeled, so there was potential dust particles in the air which could probably be an explanation for several of the orbs we caught on camera. Some of the orbs, however, were more intriguing, especially considering the time and circumstances in which they were photographed. Another picture we took appeared to contain the possible faint outline of a human figure, while some other photos might consist of different anomalies.

It would seem that Lori and Rob’s home contained several spirits, some of which might be former owners or occupants of the house, which would make sense and explain why these entities were upset about the changes being made in the home and their apparent attachment to the place. It’s possible that the remodeling might have stirred up the paranormal activity, and as a result, might have angered or confused the spirits. There could be lots of residual energy left behind as well, which could make up some of our own gathered evidence.

It also seems likely that the clients’ own deceased family members and loved ones were following them and hanging around the house. Based off our EVPs and the clients’ own personal feelings, their relatives apparently like to stick around.

Lori had the house cleansed shortly after our investigation, and she did report an improvement in the energy and overall atmosphere of the house. Hopefully any lost souls (or potential harmful ones) were helped to move on, and that things will stay peaceful and continue to exude a positive environment so that Lori and Rob (and any remaining spirits) can live in and enjoy their new home.
