A Haunted Church Part 2
This past January 10th Erie County Paranormal once again did an investigation at our church, St. Paul's United Church of Christ here in Erie. While the findings were not as numerous as their previous visit they were still as striking. From 7pm until 2am they recorded video, audio and had personal experiences of the unexplained.
Frank, the team leader and Jerry the lead Tech both heard unexplained voices and sounds from our third floor which houses a shelter for the homeless during daytime hours.
While downstairs in the fellowship hall/kitchen area both Frank and I saw tiny specks of white light dancing across the ceiling. It was not electric or hallucinatory, but tiny balls of quick moving light about the size of a pea.
While they did get many EVPs the most startling is this one: EVP1 which was recorded on the third floor near a poolstick holder.
But for me the most startling incident is once again the appearance of shadow entities. Here is the original video from-once again- the chapel.
The activity is in the upper right camera. Here is an enhanced version:
Here is one of the enhanced stills from the video:
What is this thing? Originally from the direct video feed we thought it was the head of a small child, perhaps Katie from the previous investigation detailed here. But with this enhancement you can see the head, ears, snout and eyes of....?
There was an investigator sitting on that very same pew just a few feet away, and did not see anything. There were no 'natural' animals in the church.
Until Next Time,
This church sits in downtown Erie, where the Eriez Indian tribe one had their main settlement until they were wiped out and assimilated by the Seneca in the early 1600's. The records on the Eriez are very scant having only once been encountered by French settlers before their extinction as a tribe. One of the few details we have about the tribe is that they were called 'The Cat People' and wore destinctive dress made up of wild panthers from the area.
I wonder what the area where the church now resides was used for during the time of the Eriez.
