AUDIO EVIDENCE PAGE 7 HARRISVILLE, R.I. HOME Through a team member and the generosity of the owner of this property, we were able to perform a daytime investigation in this most fascinating location. There were prior claims of activity here and we were given the opportunity to visit the house and make our own objective determination as to their validity. STAIRWAY 8/11/10 Two female investigators are coming down the stairs. Their recorders are running. Ken DeCosta is listening to the owner on the first floor. The only two other investigators are outside the house. There are absolutely no children present, yet we hear the sound of a child on the investigator’s recorder. It is hard to determine what is said under the investigator’s footsteps on the wood stairs, but the last words - we believe - are, “find me”. CHILD’S VOICE ON STAIRS LONGER VERSION WITH ALL PRESENT VOICE ISOLATED THE BUCKSVILLE HOUSE On our trip to Philadelphia to investigate Eastern State Penitentiary, we had decided to stay overnight before heading home at The Bucksville House in Kitnersville in Buck’s County, PA. The bed and breakfast had long been said to be an epicenter of paranormal activity and been featured on TV shows like, Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal and America’s Most Haunted Inns. Built in 1795, around 1830 the front part of the house was built. Originally, it was called the White Horse Tavern. The name was changed to the Bucksville Hotel, named for militia leader Nicholas Buck. SECOND FLOOR 7/8/12 Earlier in the day, we began to set up cameras and equipment for our overnight stay. While we did this, the owners, Barb and Joe Szollosi were in the wing of the building where their living quarters were located. One of our recorders caught this disembodied female voice that originated from downstairs while the entire group was on the second floor readying themselves for the evening’s activities. There is overwhelming certainty this is none of our people nor is it the voice of Barb, the only other female on the premises at this time. Do what  now is something we aren’t really sure of. “CAN YOU DO IT NOW?” VOICE ISOLATED THE GOLD ROOM 7/8/12 We know each other's voices immediately and can recognize them on an audio recording with little to no problem. After listening to literally thousands of hours of them, it becomes second nature to identify who is speaking, even in sotto voice. The following clip is submitted with the confidence that a voice not belonging to our team nor the owners is present and we struggled with including it here because of its ambiguity. You will hear Wendy Thatcher whisper and then ask, "Did you hear that?" Nancy LaVena will reply "Yes" and then a third voice is clearly heard over Nancy saying, “It’s perfect” at 0:07. We cannot completely agree on what is said, but there is no doubt it is loud and in close proximity to the investigators. 3RD VOICE IN ROOM ISOLATED THE BLUE ROOM 7/8/12 Ken DeCosta stayed in what is called “The Blue Room” and before turning in for the night did a short EVP session in there. The subsequent review led to discovering a very odd response to Ken’s explanation of who was there and why. We had a difficult time in accepting the word that we recorded for what it was because it seems a bit too “in tune” with what our purpose was there besides getting a good night’s sleep in a lovely establishment. Perhaps with the amount of folks going through the house claiming to have the “gift” of ESP and their ability to speak with the spirits, we got thrown into that category. We’d never rule out a case of confirmation bias on our part, but nonetheless, this is what we hear when we listen. “PSYCHIC” VOICE ISOLATED THE OLIVER HOUSE The group was invited to investigate this historic home built in 1769 as a likely wedding present to Judge Peter Oliver’s son and his bride. Its sister-structure, the larger “Oliver Hall” which once stood on the same estate, was burned down by revolutionaries. Many who have ventured inside said it was rife with paranormal activity and eventually it was featured on the the TLC network’s Paranormal Lockdown. Our one visit there resulted in a bevy of data collection and some audio that absolutely supports the claims being made at this location. SECOND FLOOR 5/20/16 A group of investigators are conducting a session where the bedrooms and guest quarters are located. Earlier, while setting up with no cameras or recorders running, we began to hear the consistent sound of what we thought to be the voice of a child or children. Less than an hour later, Joe Chin and Chris Blanchette try to reach out to this child spirit and receive an audible affirmative response to their offer of “toys” to play with. “YES” VOICE ISOLATED EMPTY HOUSE 5/20/16 We had all left the house for a break after an hour of investigation and everyone was outdoors as we left our recorders and cameras rolling. This audio clip of a woman’s voice was captured during this point in time. The house had been left to the group and all members were accounted for during this time frame. WOMAN’S VOICE RECORDED IN EMPTY HOUSE SITTING ROOM 5/20/16 All of us at RISEUP have heard all the clichés said to have been captured on digital equipment of voices saying “get out”, “dead”, “demon” and the like. Very often these are products of confirmation bias and the expectation of what you may expect (or wish) to hear depending on the situation and the background of the location. It’s with a certain level of total conviction then that we present this particular clip. Ken DeCosta, Chris Blanchette and Cody Ray DesBiens are in the sitting room alone in the house when they audibly hear the deep voice of an adult male inside the house. As they were all sitting within a couple of feet of each other and they were alone in the house, we feel this clip can’t be overlooked. What does puzzle us is what we feel is said and that its context doesn’t make a lot of sense. We therefore present it as documentation of our visit and not for its “shock” value. “BLOOD” VOICE ISOLATED SITTING ROOM 5/20/16 This clip just amazes us. Ken DeCosta, Chris Blanchette, Joe Chin and Cody Ray DesBiens are situated in the sitting room with recorders triangulated and taking environmental readings. Chris is the first to hear a voice but can’t say what was said. At 0:03 and 0:05 a child and a male’s voices are recorded and seem to be interacting with each other. “MOMMY?……..I MISS YOU” VOICES ISOLATED SECOND FLOOR 5/20/16 The group is Joe Chin, Wellington Chin, Steve Mills and Julie DeMay and they are alone in the house up on the second floor. As they quietly conduct their session, they all hear (and record) a male voice somewhere in the house. Again, we have to be careful about the ghost hunting clichés, but we honestly do hear the words…. “GET OUT!” VOICE ISOLATED MIDDLEBORO TOWN HALL We were able to secure an invitation to investigate this beautiful town building via the same folks who granted us access to the Oliver House. There had been prior claims of activity here so we were eager to investigate it ourselves and did so with a small but experienced crew of people including some members of TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society). MEETING AND PERFORMANCE HALL 12/10/16 The group conducted a session in the meeting and performance hall early in the evening and experienced some strange audible phenomena in which a man’s voice is clearly heard in that area. The group were alone on the floor while two others monitored the live audio and video feeds in a separate room one floor below. Ken hears the voice in real time and the recording confirms its presence. No consensus on what is actually spoken. MALE VOICE VOICE ISOLATED MEETING AND PERFORMANCE HALL 12/10/16 As the session continued, it was posited that perhaps whoever might be there enjoyed the performances that took place here over the years and that maybe they had an affinity to music. Ken had whistled a tune a few seconds earlier and Cody felt he heard a response. While the audio recorders revealed nothing to confirm that, just seconds later the group does  hear a clear and eerie whistling response with absolutely no visible source of origin. WHISTLING RESPONSE SOUND ISOLATED HOLDING CELLS 12/10/16 There have been claims here of apparitions in the meeting hall balcony, shadows, voices, etc., but one of the more interesting places to us was the temporary holding cells in the building’s basement. These were used to hold arrestees overnight until their hearing the following day. While inside the cell with the door shut, Ken DeCosta  had a unique experience there with who would go on to be known as “The Singing Woman”. This was something completely unexpected because he and Cody were alone in this area at the time and were separated when this occurred. WOMAN SINGING VOICE ISOLATED  HOLDING CELLS 12/10/16 By this time, Ken had marked what he heard on the audio recording and called Cody over and explained what he had just heard. Cody decided to stand outside the jail cell door for the next few minutes and by a stroke of good fortune, the phenomena repeated itself for both to hear and capture in a recording. It should be noted that the possibility of “The Singing Woman” being someone researchable took a turn toward reality when we indeed found the name of an elderly female who had passed recently and once had a presence in the building that fit this profile perfectly.
