AUDIO EVIDENCE PAGE 5 PAINE HOUSE CON’T. DINING ROOM 7/21/12 Christine Downes and Steve Mills are in the dining room and Chris asks for some possible interaction via vocal means. While sh is in this process, her recorder picks up a definitive response to the negative. “NO” VOICE ISOLATED KITCHEN AREA 9/29/12 Ken DeCosta leads a session and offers explanations regarding the equipment being used and the purpose of an audio recorder. The response is not audible to the group, but creates an interesting scenario wherein it might be conceivable that at times we are as elusive and hidden to the spirit world as they are to us. “WHO IS THAT?” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 10/20/12 Christine Downes again receives a wonderful response when asking if there is anyone with us that is one of the original owners of the house. We can speculate that this might be one of the Brayton family, but it again motivates us to know that our queries are not going unnoticed. “YES, MA’AM” VOICE ISOLATED PAINE HOUSE OVERNIGHT INVESTIGATION Earlier this year, Dave Grady and his daughter Shayna Drinkuth decided to be the first guests to stay at the Paine House overnight in 146 years. They conducted some EVP sessions, walked through the house and then left the recorders running as they went to sleep. But sleep did not come easy as demonstrated by these following clips. KITCHEN AREA At the time the pair chose to get some sleep, they left recorders running at different locations throughout the house. One in particular was left in the kitchen which to this point had been a very active spot. At first they slept through door latches being tripped. DOOR LATCH There was more movement in the kitchen a few minutes later. SOUNDS FROM KITCHEN 1 SOUNDS FROM KITCHEN 2 At one point after these sounds were recorded, what appears to be a male voice is heard in the room. The investigators are still asleep at is point. “GOT IT” The pair is finally awakened by this horrific crash of a pot or pan. Later upon checking, there seemed to be absolutely nothing out of place and the staff of the museum confirmed this as nothing was touched after the spot check. LOUD CRASH As Dave made is way to the kitchen and just started to unlatch the door, another voice is recorded inside the room. The wonderful part about this clip is that if we are correct, a warning is being issued. To whom exactly? “HE’S AT THE DOOR” VOICE ISOLATED TRAVELER’S ROOM 5/11/13 Ken DeCosta was joined by a new investigator, Ed Shannon on the second floor. A series of motion sensors had been placed in a path from the first floor dining room, through the kitchen and upstairs to the second floor. The last one was perched on the wooden chest out side the Traveler’s Room. Ken was situated in there while Ed sat inside the adjoining Matron’s Room. At one point, each sensor went off in sequence from the first to the last and an EMF reading in the Traveler’s Room spiked to 7.5. When the session ended, both men started back down to base in the tavern on the basement level. While Ken’s recorder ran, a man’s voice was heard possibly giving directions out of the area. This experience happened during an afternoon investigation. “HEAD THIS WAY” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 7/13/13 A male and female investigator are in the dining room and the question “Are you here with us right now?” is asked. This low frequency response seems to indicate the answer is yes and that both are very welcome guests at this time. “NICE TO SEE YOU” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 8/3/13 Two female investigators are positioned in the dining room running an EVP session. One addresses “Sarah” and invites her to come and play with them. Whether it is a little girl spirit or another older female, the response appears to be one of gratitude. “THANK YOU” VOICE ISOLATED SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY 10/11/13 We enjoy hosting other paranormal groups at Paine House because there’s an opportunity to have others conduct investigations and draw their own conclusions. We always ask for objective opinions after all their data is reviewed and personal experiences examined. In this case, a team called Spectral Forces came to Paine House and while in the active hallway area recorded a high-pitched voice over their own. This happens quite frequently and it’s often difficult to draw any consensus on what is actually said. In this case, it is in low-frequency and does not originate from any of the S.F. team as far as we can determine. FEMALE VOICE VOICE ISOLATED MATRON’S ROOM 6/13/14 Ken DeCosta is doing a walkthrough with guests before a public investigation and when they enter the room where RISEUP had videotaped a rocking chair moving on its own in 2012. Ken begins to tell them the story and also mentions Julie DeMay who will be doing video recordings during the evening. At that point, a young voice (Sarah?) says the word, “chair” which is not audible to anyone until a review of Ken’s recorder that had been placed inside earlier in the afternoon. “CHAIR” VOICE ISOLATED SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY 6/13/14 Ken DeCosta is standing in the hallway with Steve Mills just engaged in conversation when both hear a young female voice call out. They are alone in this area and there is no apparent explanation for what they heard. While what we believe we are hearing is a bit of a cliché statement in the presentation of audible evidence, we do hear what we think is someone calling for a father. “DADDY?” VOICE ISOLATED ATTIC 8/16/14 Three female investigators have the run of the house and they go up to the fourth level to explore the attic where there have been some interesting “sightings” in our time at the house. They decide to address “Sarah” and try to engage her with questions about the possibility she enjoys some of the items we have left around the building in an attempt to trigger her interest. They hear a disembodied voice at one point and while this again is subjective, we venture a “best guess” as to what the response was. “PLEASE LEAVE” VOICE ISOLATED ATTIC 9/20/14 Feeling encouraged after hearing the clip above, the same group heads to the attic once again about one month later. They try to make further contact with “Sarah” and towards the end of the session, it is asked if we are an intrusion or unwelcome presence at this time. This is a stunning piece of audio in that we hear a response suggesting that our presence is indeed welcome and the group is being encouraged to stay. What is said was not audible at the time the group was there. “NO ONE NEEDS TO LEAVE” VOICE ISOLATED This one might be a bit tougher to hear, so we amped it as best we could and filtered just a small amount of background hum. The group recorded one last piece of  audio in the attic that falls into the category of “intriguing”. In looking for an identity of any spirit present, one asks if it is known whose house this is. Their response is from a male who makes it clear that… “THIS IS HOME” VOICE ISOLATED KITCHEN 9/27/14 Again a group of female investigators are trying to communicate with “Sarah”. Ken DeCosta has joined them for this session. They are sitting at a table in another “hot spot” of the house, the kitchen area. They are trying to appeal to this spirit by convincing her she is safe and welcome in their presence. WE must apologize that this clip is shorter than it should be because we have lost some of the context of the conversation. What we recorded is open for interpretation at best. This may be “Why don’t you care?” or “I don’t care” or perhaps something entirely up to whomever hears this. We present it solely as evidence that whatever was recorded was dynamic and not easily explainable. FEMALE VOCAL RESPONSE VOICE ISOLATED SCHOOLROOM 10/4/14 This one comes from one of our guests on a public investigation. A couple is inside the schoolroom on the first floor and getting ready to spend some time there. As they begin to settle in, a child’s voice is heard that they claim was inside the room with them, as if coming out of thin air. The idea of children calling to their parents is again a bit cliché, but to us it certainly sounds like a child calling for its mother. “MOMMY” VOICE ISOLATED
