AUDIO EVIDENCE PAGE 6 PAINE HOUSE CON’T. REMOTE AUDIO 5/30/15 Quite often we choose to run recorders in a location void of any human presence and monitor it from outside the building. This creates a sort of control over the place where we can listen to natural sounds that have either internal or external sources. This helps when they are heard in real time to discern what might be explainable or unexplainable. This way we don’t have to waste much time analyzing and dissecting things with rational origins. In this case, our recorder picked up the sound of a male voice inside the house when none of us were inside. It was audible and heard at our base which was in the yard outside the house. We can’t venture any conclusions on what is being said, but it’s quite interesting from our perspectives. MALE VOICE IN EMPTY HOUSE REMOTE AUDIO 8/15/15 Again using the “empty house” technique, this is one of the most amazing pieces of audio we have ever heard in our time investigating. This was heard through headphones from a microphone inside the building while we sat outside listening. It caused quite a stir as we all reviewed it. These are the sounds of footsteps inside the empty house and it should be noted they are amplified only slightly to help with the listening experience. This was truly mind- blowing. FOOTSTEPS IN THE EMPTY PAINE HOUSE MILITARY ROOM 4/11/16 It was becoming more apparent that the sounds of footsteps were becoming more prevalent in the house and some members of the staff had their own unnerving experiences with them. Especially when they were inside by themselves straightening up things or rearranging artifacts. In this clip, Cody Ray DesBiens is inside a room with an abundance of Civil War-era memorabilia with a couple of other guests. The set of loud footsteps approaches the room. The guests make no mention of this as they assume someone is coming across the floor to join them. Cody however realizes there is no one in the house but his group and draws everyone’s attention to the sound. They abruptly stop outside the doorway and when Cody checks, nobody else is in the house as he correctly assumed. There has been no amplification of the sound at all and this is the raw file. Kind of disturbing stuff right here. FOOTSTEPS APPROACH THE MILITARY ROOM DINING ROOM 5/3/16 Each year we host a bowling tournament for charity and we make a short comedy skit video to promote it. There was a story line that somehow Joe Chin had gone missing but had returned after being locked in the trunk of a car. To illustrate this, Joe had dirt rubbed on his face and created the appearance of him being very grubby and disheveled because of this “ordeal”. He skit calls for him to bust through the door in this condition and verbally attack those responsible. While we were having fun filming this, Steve Mills, who always seems to have a recorder running, claimed he heard a child’s voice near the dining room table. While most of those present didn’t acknowledge it because they were pre-occupied, a review of the file absolutely showed someone very young had spoken and perhaps was a bit taken back by Joe’s demeanor and appearance. This is truly a surprising bit of happenstance and quite astonishing. “HE SCARES ME” VOICE ISOLATED SECOND FLOOR HALLWAY 6/11/16 While shooting an episode for our Internet series “The Paranormal Truth”, Ken DeCosta, Chris Blanchette and Julie DeMay were on the second floor. The filming took place during daylight hours and the group was conducting an EVP session. When Ken asks for help in trying to see the form of any entity that might be present for us, a response is returned suggesting someone would rather have our assistance at that point in time. “NO…HELP ME” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 7/18/16 Paine House was offered to guests for an investigation as part of our annual Ocean State ParaCon charity event. On this Saturday night, former Dead Air Radio host George R. Lopez was present and conducting a collective consciousness experiment in the house. Guests were welcome to ask questions and one inquired about certain important dates in the building’s occupants history. When she states the year 1748, an affirmative response is received. This was the year the house was expanded to its present size to allow for an inn and tavern to open there. “YES MA’AM” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 10/4/16 A couple of female guests are conducting an EVP session under our guidance in one of the more active rooms in the house. One as a way of introduction announces that they “just want to get to know you.” The response she receives is one that is familiar and one that we also recorded on our very first visit to the house some 6 years prior. One wonders then how a spirit might perceive us and if our presence is as hard to discern as theirs might be for us. “WHO’S THERE?” VOICE ISOLATED DINING ROOM 10/4/16 Only a few minutes later, the pair records another voice in low frequency, but this time it is that of an adult male in a rather gruff tone. This is going to be another subjective clip, because we can’t conclude what is being said, only that after review it falls in line with the definition of true electronic voice phenomena. MALE VOICE VOICE ISOLATED SPRAGUE MANSION We were invited into what is called “one of the most haunted places in Rhode Island” by the Cranston Historical Society in 2009 and returned a year later almost to the day. Three generations of the Sprague family lived in the house. The Spragues were founders of the Sprague Print Works in 1808, which later became the Cranston Print Works, which is the only continuously operating textile printing company in America. At the time of the Civil War, the A. & W. Sprague Company was the richest textile company in the United States. The house was built around 1790. It was expanded significantly in 1864 by Col. Amasa Sprague. He added a wide hall and wide, winding staircase, for the purpose of entertaining his social contacts from financial, political, and social circles. SECOND FLOOR BEDROOM 9/23/09 During an EVP session in one of the family bedrooms, Ken DeCosta attempts to identify any spirit present without making assumptions. In doing so, he allows any entity the opportunity to send a message or converse. In this clip, we learn to some surprise that perhaps all here are not Spragues and it’s done in a manner so as to leave little doubt. “IT IS…NOT!” VOICE ISOLATED SECOND FLOOR BEDROOM 9/23/09 Later in the evening, Ryan Lantini, being aware that a shadowy figure was seen and followed through two adjoining bedrooms by Dave DeCosta, tries to determine the whereabouts of this possible physical entity. He asks for an indication of “where you’re coming from”. The response is quite interesting. Perhaps there is a misunderstanding of the question and its intent, but a location is indeed given and it relates to a Sprague-owned property located on a well-known and lovely local beach. This was a summer home and a pride of the Sprague family. Unfortunately, the last syllable is partially obscured by the sound of an investigator moving something in the room. “SCARBOROUGH” VOICE ISOLATED MARY WATERMAN’S BEDROOM Mary Waterman Sprague died at the age of 10. She was the daughter of Col. Byron Sprague and Harriet Comstock Sprague. While setting up in her room, two female investigators ready their equipment and begin to settle in for their session. This is one of the most phenomenal audio clips we have ever received and one that gives even skeptics pause. Both investigators continue on as they do not hear the voice that you are about to. There is no explainable reason why a child’s voice should be here calling for her mother. “MOMMY, MOMMY, MOMMY…MOMMY” VOICE ISOLATED MORTON MIDDLE SCHOOL Before its closing in 2013, we managed to secure a visit to this huge brick building which was rumored to have some very strange activity going on there. We spent a night in the old school and did not come away disappointed. A new school has been constructed on these same grounds since then. 5TH FLOOR 5/22/2012 Julie Demay, Wendy Thatcher, Nancy LaVena and Jess Lane were on this floor which proved to be a real hot spot for weird goings-on this night. At one point Julie said she clearly heard a woman singing near the music room and Jess confirmed she heard the same. Her camera microphone recorded this. A bit harder to hear than most clips, perhaps. WOMAN SINGING VOICE ISOLATED 5TH FLOOR 5/22/2012 In this same session, Wendy has broken from the group a few feet away and as she is in her location, she gets somewhat unnerved by a disembodied “whisper” that she hears very close to her. Our review clearly bears out exactly what she heard and for all intents and purposes it is quite close to her recorder microphone and that eliminates any sound coming from her group who were otherwise silent at this point in time. “HEY!” VOICE ISOLATED
