Niagara Gazette — Curious and intent on checking out the old police station first, we began the investigation in the holding cells. According to local lore, most of those held in these cells perhaps had had a little too much to drink. Some of the ghost hunters had an experience in one of those cells when a metal shelf vibrated at the same time their K2 meter reacted to some electromagnetic force that had suddenly entered the cell — all in response to questions they were asking of a presence that might be sharing the space with them. There were other instances in which various unusual readings spiked in the basement and in the attic. But probably the most dramatic experience was felt during Mike’s spirit box session. One of the rooms in the basement had some water coming in (because of the autumn storm that was raging outside) and the investigators had mentioned that falling water is often a good conductor of spirit activity — so it was decided that this particular spot would be perfect. Questions were asked and repeated ... questions such as: “Who are you? Do you want us to leave? Would you like us to help you?” At times there were responses, although it was often difficult to make them out. The most frightening part of the experience came about a week afterward — when the evidence was analyzed. Apparently, we were not alone, for other voices somehow had manifested within the recordings of the spirit box sessions. Voices clearly said things such as names (Melissa, Mathilda, Gary) and responded to questions. Mostly what can be heard is a female voice. Perhaps the most chilling EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) captured that evening was a woman’s voice saying: Stay here. Another time, in a different room, the same high pitched woman’s voice manifested itself on a recording and said merely: Hello. But they were both unmistakably the same sad and gossamer voice.
