THE MIDNIGHT SHADOW
After over 6 months of planning Team PPG finally arrived to investigate one of the most exciting locations they have ever investigated. Unfortunately, due to it's sensitive location, the exact location cannot be revealed. All that can be said is that it is located in Sennelager (Paderborn), was built between 1892 & 1894, has been in permanent use since then and has a very interesting history.
It is also one of the largest locations that Team PPG has ever investigated.
Various reports and rumours of paranormal activity are attached to this location, from the usual feelings of being watched, cold spots, strange noises to a recent report of a Full Bodied apparition of a World War 2 era German Soldier being seen rushing through the cellars. The employee who experienced this has never set foot in the cellars since then!
The night proved to be unexpectedly quiet for Team PPG who experienced no activity at all.... that is until Joe decided to set off for a solo session in the cellar while Adam & Jani over watched the main hall area from a balcony (where the band would have played to entertain guests in the main hall).... the time??.....
This is what happened in the following 9 minutes...
|2 minutes to midnight...|
23:58h Joe heads down into the cellar for a solo session.
Adam & Jani are situated on the balcony overlooking the main hall. They have a video camera located on the balcony with them filming down into the hall. In the hall they have the following equipment set up: Shadow Detector, REM DD (disturbance detector), REM POD, Motion activated light.
23:59h Video camera on balcony fails and switches off
00:00h Shadow detector activates, Adam informs Joe of this by radio
00:01h Shadow detector activates again. Jani then asks whoever activated it to turn it back off. Shadow detector goes off on command.
|Adam pointing to where the shadow figure was seen|
00:02h Shadow detector activates again. Adam decides to inform Joe of this by radio. During this call Jani sees a free standing shadow-figure moving below her under the balcony area in the main hall moving towards the shadow detector. Adam asks Joe to return to location. (The shadow detector remained activated during this whole event)
|Red Light Anomaly where Shadow Figure was seen|
00:05h Adam heads down to the main hall and finds that the shadow detector has actually been moved! He repositions and resets it and collects a spare battery for the video camera that had turned off.
|Motion Activated Light turns on|
00:06h As Adam returns to the balcony the REM DD alarms to signal a disturbance in it's vicinity and the motion activated light switches on. Was the Shadow Figure following Adam?
00:07h Adam returns to the team on the balcony. No further activity is recorded.
During video evidence review a few other interesting events were captured. In the minutes leading up midnight and the sighting of the shadow figure a number of interesting light anomalies were seen in the area of the shadow Detector. A static camera also caught the REM DD activating a number of times for no apparant reason.
During audio evidence review Joe captured a couple of possible EVP's and one Class A EVP recorded in the main hall that clearly says "Here" (or "Hier" in German).
This was an amazing night for Team PPG and a very exciting few minutes were experienced at midnight.
