NEW scientific research which uses evidence from the world famous Enfield Poltergeist case has come a step closer to proving conclusively the existence of paranormal activity.

Research published in the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research has concluded that audio recordings made during poltergeist activity at a house in Green Street in the late 1970s were unlikely to have been caused by normal human activity.

The recordings, made between 1977 and 1978, captured a variety of unexplained occurrences that plagued a mother and her children – including banging on walls and moving furniture.

During the year of disturbances, incidents of levitation and appearances of apparitions were also reported.

The events were witnessed by the family, along with local police officers, neighbours and journalists, receiving global media attention.

For years the Oakdale Leader building on South Third Avenue has been rumored to host more than just the employees on the payroll. Stories of mysterious happenings, odd sounds, and even an apparition sighting or two have abounded, shared among the community from past and present employees but now it’s official — The Leader office is a hot bed of paranormal activity, at least according to the investigators with the Western Region Paranormal Research (WRPR) group following an evening spent in the building.

Saturday night, April 17, the investigation group based out of Ceres converged on Oakdale and set up their sophisticated equipment in the hopes of catching evidence that there’s more to the stories than just someone’s active imagination.

The results were enough to keep the investigators chattering for days.

“Our first thoughts were, there is definitely activity in the building. It could be residual or it could be a spirit. We won’t know until we get feedback from the cameras,” shared WRPR co-founder Barbara Rubis-Johnson. “The whole team was psyched.”

Editor Marg Jackson, who has been with the Leader for 17 years, was on site for the investigation and was curious to see what the team would uncover as she has experienced more than a few freaky incidents that were difficult to explain logically.

“One evening, working late, I had my daughter at the office with me and saw her go past my door, out of the corner of my eye,” Jackson shared. “I went back to check on her, because I assumed she went to the break room but when I got there, the lights were out and she wasn’t there.

The other day I was thinking about the reason why I started writing about the paranormal. What GhostTheory represents and what writing does for me. As a writer, I find myself spending a lot of time contemplating life. I don’t just surround myself with the paranormal. Many of you might be aware that I write about the paranormal as a hobby. Most of my other readings are about social issues and history (both usually focusing on the relation between the U.S. and Mexico). The strangeness and uncertainty of the unexplained has always fascinated me. As far back as I can remember, reading about the Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch or ghosts, has always been my favorite way to spend an afternoon.

These stories of ghosts, UFOs and cryptids were just scary tales to a child. I truly believed in the existence of these things.

As a man in my early 30s, I find that most of the things that fascinated and scared me as a child seem so far gone. Throughout the years I’ve learned about the intricate details of each infamous “monster story”. What I hailed as definite proof of a living dinosaur in Loch Ness, turned out to be hoaxed photographs created out of spite. The “Cottingley Fairies” was another hoax revealed that chipped away at the concrete foundation of my childhood beliefs, creating loose rubble that slowly turned into a new skeptical conglomerate foundation.

No matter what hoaxes were revealed, the fact of the matter is that I still know that there is something out there that exists, some type of force that is self-aware and influential in our own lives. I know this because I’ve seen things that I cannot explain. I’ve seen things, as clear as day (or night), that defy all logical thought. I’ve seen a Shadow Person. I know deep in my heart that what I saw was not a trick of light or my imagination. Yet those who I share this story with look at me like I’m crazy…
