Unexplainable encounters: 3
Encounter 1: John, Kyle, and Myself (Maggie) were heading up the main stairs closest to control center when I hear a growl coming from besides me. I am half way up the stairs. I recall my self telling them it almost sounded like some one ran their nails along the wood right next to me.
Encounter 2: Later that night the three of us and one of the owners Matt Wood were on the 3rd floor/Attic area. I was the 3rd to enter the room when we all heard a low growl which should be recorded on the Hi-8 video camera, but has yet to be enhanced.
Encounter 3: We were wrapping up the investigation and removing the tape from the DVR camera wires. Kyle and I had just exited the office area where camera one was in and a nail fell from the ceiling between the two of us. I was following close behind Kyle, as soon as we heard it we found the nail on the ground and tried to kick it to reproduce the sound but we couldn't match it. Get this the ceiling where it fell from there was no nails in that ceiling. If a nail came from anywhere near that it would have been next to us, which was the stairs. The same stairs as encounter 1.
