Russian Hill, Suicide House

History

Our team was contacted to perform an investigation of a house, which many locals refer to as the, “Suicide House”. The house was originally constructed in 1875 along the banks of the Russian River in California. It is documented that the first owner became distrout over losing his wife to due sickness and a hung himself from the rafters in one of the guest bedrooms.

The house was vacant throughout the years and was even abandoned for 15 years. In 1995 the current owner remodeled the structure and began renting it out. However he has since been having issues keeping tenants due to many odd occurrences that they have been experiencing. Past tenants have reported a short shadow figure darting throughout the property and have also heard voices even when no one else is present.

Paranormal Investigation

Our team arrived on location at 8pm, after unpacking our gear we sent up stationary cameras in the bedroom were the suicide occurred as well as in the hallway, staircase, master, and basement. We surveyed and performed regular EMF sweeps and noticed that several areas of the house were the client reported activity correlated with high emf fields that were being created by exposed wiring under the house. The readings in these areas averaged between 80 to 95 Gauss, which could promote feelings of uneasiness and even foster hallucinations to those that have a sensitivity to high electromagnetic fields.

After preforming several audio recording sessions in hopes of capturing any spirit voices, we determined that due to the street outside and the acoustics of the house, many of the noises that we caused by people walking outside and cars passing by could actually be heard in all areas of the house except for the basement. Was this the cause of the phantom voices?

After evaluating all the data from the investigation, we were unable to confirm of anything paranormal happening on the property.

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.
