Claims of activity: Hearing footsteps, voices and loud bangs. People have also claimed to see people within the home walking around when know one is in the building.

The Investigation: The team arrived at 9:00 PM.  We met with our guest investigator. He allowed us into the building and showed us the areas in which people have experienced paranormal activity. We then set up our equipment and began our investigation. We placed one video camera on the second floor looking down a short hallway where people have reported hearing footsteps. We placed a second video camera in a bedroom at the rear of the house.  There are more reports of footsteps in this area. In addition to these cameras, we placed two digital voice recorders on the second floor. Throughout the investigation, we took EMF readings as well as temperature readings. The temperature inside the house maintained an average of 82 Degrees Fahrenheit. Throughout the home we noticed fluctuating EMF readings ranging from .2 to 6.0 . The higher readings were attributed old electrical wiring.
We also conducted EVP sessions in various locations of the house including the attic, back bedroom and front center room. The collected data is being reviewed. Upon completion of the review process, any potential evidence will be posted on the website.

Shippen Manor Oxford,NJ

We Arrived at Approximately 8:30 PM. We met with Mr. Andy Drysdale. He Gave us a tour of the manor including a brief history of the property and any unusual events experienced by him, or other employees. After the tour, we set up one video camera in the basement, and one video camera on the first floor. We then proceeded with the investigation which included base temperature readings in each room. While Continuously monitoring temperature readings, we attempted to capture EVPs in each room. We concluded the investigation at approximately 12:00 am.
                                                        Upon review of the audio and video evidence, we discovered a voice on the basement video camera that appears to be saying "Help me." This is not, in our opinion, considered to be intelligent energy, or something that can manifest itself at will. We do, however, consider the possibility that this is residual energy, or something that occasionally replays an instance in time, almost like a recording.
Members Present: Jason, Corey, Lonnie, Anthony.
Weather: Warm, typical summer night, clear.
Recorded Temperatures: 68 degrees.
