Tracking paranormal activity at Adams Mill

Crowd joins Kokomo ghost trackers Saturday

(Continued)

“We’ve had rocks or pebbles thrown maybe once or twice before, but for that to constantly go on is unbelievable,” Taylor said. “It’s almost to the point you think someone is doing it, but I really don’t think that was the case here. I think it was all stirred up because of the large crowd.”

Several items used during the investigation included a Tri-Field meter, K-2 meter, electromotive force (EMF) pumps, a ghost box and various digital recorders, infrared cameras, laser lights and digital cameras, Taylor said.

In Taylor’s group, a ghost box was used to scan frequencies. While the ghost box was on, the name “Alex” was heard. Sometimes a ghost box can also communicate messages and a flashlight can be used to confirm things, Taylor said.

“The flashlight being turned on and off doesn’t happen frequently — Saturday was just a fluke,” Taylor said. “It was an outstanding night.”

A voice was also heard Saturday night. While people were standing silently in the dark, it sounded like a voice was saying “hi” in a deep voice from above, members of the group said. The problem was, the group was on the top floor.

A member of the Kokomo chapter talked about finding a pen in a spider web. When she reached in to get it the web broke, and when she pulled her arm away she had the cobweb on her shirt. She pointed out that the same thing would have happened to someone who placed the pen in the cobweb in the first place.

“It was very active,” Taylor said the night of the investigation. “I didn’t expect things to be thrown. It exceeded my expectation.”

After an investigation, Taylor said members of the Kokomo chapter will go back through to listen to recordings and view footage collected.

Information about the Kokomo chapter is available at kokomoghosts.org.
