Paranormal Investiagtors Report (Jo & Marc)

Session 1: We began our first session with a short seance involving 6 people, myself included. Some firm arm movement was felt between some of the guests, and spirit was using our arms to “push” the male guests. After about 10 minutes we had built up some energy, the group began using the Ouija table to see if Spirit would communicate. From the outset the glass did not move, so we then asked spirit to move the table. The table began to move quite strongly, but seemed to be moving towards one guest in particular consistently. I asked Julie (the guest) to change places with another around the table to see if it would remain the same. The table continued to move towards Julie even in her new position. Marc and I both found this extremely interesting. Marc then suggested trying the Ouija again. This time the glass began to move immediately, and began by spelling out the name STRIVEN. Julie seemed quite moved by this, so we asked her if it meant something to her. It is the surname of a patient she cared for at work who had been moved to another facility and had been to rumoured to have passed away. The glass then spelt out PETER, which she confirmed as his christian name and also his age, 78. Neither Marc or myself were on the table. This concluded this session.

Session 2: This session we had a total of 7 in the group, including Marc and myself. We began again with a short seance, which again saw some arm movement and pushing of the male guests. The group then had a short table tipping session with the table moving between the men in the group, Simon and Jason. After a while we all moved to the tunnel area of the capponiere, where we all began to feel slightly uneasy, particularly the women. Whilst we were standing there, we heard a noise as if something was thrown, and went on to find 2 bullets on the ground which had not been there before. We asked for spirit to throw something else, which we heard in the other room but were unable to find the object. It sounded like a stone. A little while later Charlotte (guest) was standing in the corner of the tunnel and said she felt like she needed to move her arm up and point, as if in arm movement in a seance. We asked her to go with it, and sure enough her arm began to move and finger pointed out, trembling severely. She was pointing at Marc. Just out of curiosity, I asked spirit if they could move her legs as well and to take her to where he was standing. Marc and I were then astounded, she began to move very slowly and in a very unnatural like manor towards Marc. For want of a better description, it was almost like a Zombie walk! She was completely lucid the entire time, but when she reached the wall, Charlotte became extremely emotional, so we removed her from the room and ended the session. This footage can be seen at

Session 3: Again we had seven in the group total. As usual we started with a short seance and had very slight arm movement. We then went on to try ouija and table tipping, both unsuccessfully. The group moved to the tunnel, where we asked one of the female guests (Nickie), to stand in the same corner where Charlotte had been stood in the previous group. She began to feel very uneasy, and was not communicating with us clearly, so we removed her from the room as she requested. We moved back into the main room and asked spirit to throw something again. On demand a stone was thrown, and when found it was still warm as if it had come from outside, it was a very warm evening (approximately 24 degrees Celsius), and freezing in the capponiere (approximately 12-14 degrees Celsius). Another object was thrown, which we unable to find. This concluded this session.

All in all, we feel there was a very angry male presence that really did not like female visitors!     Additional information:   The Ovilus III was used on all vigils with varying degrees of “intelligence” in response to some of the questions we were posing. Planchette contact was sought but to no avail. Additionally, a trigger object, a brass miniature dinner gong, was positioned in the room and spirit was requested to force the disc to move. Regrettably nothing materialised in this experiment. Numerous full spectrum photographs were taken the results of which still need to be reviewed by our experts. High pitched “noises” resembling screaming or perhaps whistling were noted during the evening and remain unexplained. Several instances of “footsteps” were also apparent though this remains inconclusive. Marc heard several low, monotone groans within the capponniere during the evening which remain unidentified and unexplained.

The breakout sessions, towards the end of the evening, proved interesting but with nothing major or tangible to report. Initial, and very brief, review of the various EVP samples has proved interesting and the data can be further analysed and considered during the forthcoming tech night when the team are all present. Female voices are evident on the EVP data which is a surprising development as I do not recall experiencing similar contact or activity such as this before at this venue?

Conclusion: an excellent night overall with some astounding and newly encountered phenomena, least of all the apparent “possession” of the young lady in the first vigil group. Kurt, the ever present “contact” made an appearance (not literally I might add) during the several and various Ouija sessions and on this occasion, portrayed himself as a very low level contact exhibiting no aggression as in previous engagements.
