Petersburg, Virginia (PressExposure) November 25, 2009 -- It is very rare that CVAPI (Central Virginia Paranormal Investigations) will disclose where they are going or where they have been. Last night, they met with real estate agent Kimberly Ann Calos of Prince George Realty, to investigate one of her historic properties. Marie Colby from Missouri also attended last night's investigation and is the Co-Founder of the National Coalition of Ghost Hunters (NCGH). I spoke with Jackie Tomlin, Founder of Central Virginia Paranormal Investigations.
"According to Kimberly, there is a percentage of the market that hopes that these older homes are haunted when they purchase them." "This house has sat abandoned for the last eight years. It is located in Petersburg, Virginia's, Folly Castle Historic District and was built in 1810."
The investigation was broadcast yesterday on WRVA 1140AM, as well as NBC Channel 12 and WRIC Channel 8 were there last night. CVAPI arrived at the location at 9:00PM to set up for the investigation and stayed until 2:00AM. Thanks to their sponsor, Patriot Auto Exchange out of Hopewell Virginia, in assisting with adding to their cable system, they were able to reach the third floor with their IR camera's with ease.
"Even with no power in the location, we were able to run a full-scale investigation." "We choose to run four of our nine IR cameras, DVR, and monitor, aided by a running car outside of the location." " It will take several days to analyze the footage."
Jackie also stated that "Just because the home was built in the 1800's does not mean that it is haunted." CVAPI also spoke with a next-door neighbor where their property adjoins this location and was actually built in 1762. They report no paranormal activity at all.
"There were several personal experiences throughout the evening by those who attended including the real estate agent and the homeowner."
CVAPI will take a scientific approach to the evidence that they have gathered before they can actually say whether or not the location is really haunted. There will be more to come on this is the next upcoming days.
