Calistoga Paranormal Investigation

Case Background

Last month we received a call from a woman who believed she was seeing her deceased parents in their vacated home that they used to live in. Her parents had died within 6 months of each, with the last passing away in June of 2011. Since they had passed away the home and all of its contents had remained unchanged. She periodically checks on the home during the week the and sometimes notices shadow figures, and unexplainable voices. The house is located on a vineyard in the Napa Valley, away from busy streets, which makes the noises and sounds that she was hearing even hard to believe that it could be caused by non-paranormal forces. The daughter nor the rest of the family had ever experienced anything in the house that was paranormal until the parents had past away.

Paranormal Investigation

The team arrived on location at 9pm and surveyed the house with EMF detectors for about two hours to see if there were any electromagnetic disturbances that could be causing the daughter to be having the experiences that she was having. After doing so we were unable to pick up any unusual readings, as the base only fluctuated between .5 to .9 Milli Gauss. We then conducted several EVP sessions in combination with a EM meter to see if we could get anything, however we were unsuccessful. The only thing that happened was that several investigators smelled what appeared to be phantoms odors of roses and cigar smoke.

Our sensitives without any prior knowledge of the case did pick up on the causes of the deaths of both parents and believed that there was spiritual energy there, however it was residual as opposed to an intelligent nature.

We advised the client of our inconclusive findings and will reschedule a future investigation if the activity increases.

San Remo San Francisco Haunted

Haunted San Remo Hotel, San Francisco History

Soon after the 1906 earth quake ravage the city of San Francisco, Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini built the “Californian Hotel”.  The hotel was originally constructed to service the large immigrant workforce used to rebuild the city, also it served as a primary place of stay for merchant seaman, waterfront workers, poets, journalists and pensioners.

The building now also houses one of San Francisco’s oldest Italian Restaurants, Fior d’Italia.

Paranormal Investigation

On the night of our investigation we decided to book several of the rooms which the staff claimed were haunted.  Being that we couldn’t book the whole hotel, and also due to the fact it is on a busy street in the heart of San Francisco we knew we that our EVP sessions would be limited, so we decided to instead focus on still Infrared, and high speed photography sessions.   However first we surveyed the area by preforming a brief EMF sweep, and as with most older structures there were high readings throughout the building.

The most active room proved for the night proved to be #13, were as legend has is associated with the death of an elderly lady who was found in her bed several months after her passing.  It was in this room that we picked up several EM spikes, as well as some interesting pieces of photographic evidence. Below is a sample of what was caught during one of the burst photography sessions.
