Wed, 02 May 2012 17:37:36 GMT — Meet the Calumet Paranormal team. Not only do they investigate paranormal claims, they also debunk and try to disprove the unexplained. â??We talk to the client first, find out whatâ??s going on, we physically meet with them, and then we go onto location to do the paranormal investigation. After we set up equipment we analyze the evidence thoroughly and bring it to the client,â?? said John Grathoff, founder of Calumet Paranormal. Every investigation takes anywhere from three to eight hours. Gina Olawale has been a part of the team for about a year and says she enjoys it. â??Iâ??ve just always been interested in this kind of stuff since I was a kid. It just really interests me. I used to read all of the books about it,â?? said Olawale. Every investigation also uses various types of equipment. â??The digital voice recorder helps us catch EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomena and this is an EMF detector which is able to figure out electromagnetic field,â?? Grathoff said. The team asked for the location to remain a secret so once they were inside they used some of their equipment to determine whether or not the building had some sort of unexplained phenomenon. The team snapped pictures to capture entities and orbs, which are circular balls of light. Then they followed John downstairs where high amounts of activity were reported. Not much happened so they walked into the other room. They decided to sit and wait with the lights off. â??If youâ??re here with us Iâ??m going to do a knock pattern. You should recognize it. Just finish it off if you know it. Can you tell us what your name is? Iâ??m Johnâ?|these are my friends Jenny, Gabrielle, and Julie. Who are you?â?? Grathoff asked. With no response, they went upstairs to finish the investigation and find out what the other members of the team found. â??Some of the unique things that I saw were a lot of things on the camera that people got. We all heard a noise upstairs and there were about four of us up there. We couldnâ??t explain that,â?? Olawale said. The team said the next step is to review all of the evidence to determine whether or not the building was haunted.
