Chuck's Paranormal Adventures
Investigation #2 - Cemetery, (Jamesburg, NJ) - November 2, 2010
Again I started off by saying a quick prayer before entering as I did on my first trip to the cemetery. Also the reminder nobody was allowed to follow me home. Also to note, I repeat myself when I leave and I also say thank you for any cooperation that was given during my investigation. I am also very respectful and when I passed the graves of former Veterans, I always thank them for their service to the country. Without them defending our country's freedom, a lot of freedoms we take for granted might not be around right now.
My equipment for the investigation again was the K-II EMF detector, an IR thermometer, a digital recorder (Sony ICD-PX820) and a Samsung S860 8MP digital camera. The temperature was again around 45F, partly sunny as the sun was setting and a slight breeze again.
I made a quick walk-thru the cemetery, saying hello and paying respects before I made my way over to the only mausoleum on site. A small one (only 2 people are interred there) but from this day forward, I have discovered it to be the main focal point for activity at the cemetery .
Note: The green "face" like appearance on the door is nothing more than weathering. It shows up in every picture taken of the front of the mausoleum.
Not 10 minutes after I had arrived, I went to take a temperature check. In a matter of seconds the air temperature around me went from mid 40's to low teens and as low as 9 degrees. Within a minute, the battery indicator on the IR thermometer went from showing a full charge to blinking empty, then shut itself off. The battery life of the IR thermometer is 25-30 hours and there is an automatic off switch once you stop actively taking a reading it will shut off in 15 seconds. I had no explanation on why the battery would drain like that. It was brand new. Another experience as I have read and seen on TV before. Paranormal researchers having fresh batteries drained in seconds. This was very exciting to say the least, though I did not have a spare replacement battery for it.
As I started to walk around the area of the mausoleum, the K-II EMF detector jumped to the 2nd light for a moment and then went away. As I mentioned before, there is absolutely no power sources, no powered lighting, nothing electrical going through the cemetery. The nearest power lines are about 200-300 yards away, but if they were high in EMF, I should have gotten spikes while I was there the first time I walked through the cemetery the week before. Twice more during my stay this day, I would get a momentary jump from the 1st to the 2nd light on the K-II. One of them coincided with a EVP which I will detail shortly.
I took around 20-30 pictures, but nothing came up to note except the occasional dust orb.
After my wife picked me up (again around 6:30PM)and went home, I proceeded to download the audio files and listened to them. This time I only got 3 EVPs, but one of them coincided with a K-II meter spike and the first time I actually heard something that was caught on the recorder.
Note: It is better to listen to these with headphones on, as the EVPs are faint. You will not hear these very well through your speakers.
EVP #7 - You hear me saying it would be
great to be friends. At
around 5 seconds, you hear a very noticeable breath. That was
EVPs #7 and #8 were the ones that turned one of my best friends, Frank, from a skeptic to somebody who is now intrigued. I had not told him I was ghost hunting as this point. I had him listen to #7 and #8 as they were the best EVPs I had captured so far. He asked where I was when these were done, I told him the cemetery. When he asked who was there with me when he heard #8, I told him nobody was there with me. He asked "Then who was that talking?". I said exactly. Who was that talking to me in #8?
