The answer is no. We didn't have any collaborating evidence when the video was shot. Below is an explanation of our process. No one was in the room at the time the video footage was recorded.
Can you remember if there were any other strange occurrences when the video was taken?
Our team made great attempts in removing the human element as much as possible from the investigation. We typically would setup an audio/video homebase and monitor REAL TIME
a good distance from the active areas. Controlling the environment was an absolute concern. If you have investigators walking around during the investigation unaccounted, plenty of claims of activity will transpire. What is left out of that statement is "it's all human activity". If there is paranormal activity, how do you validate it with all the human traffic?
If anything was caught on OUR video, all investigators were far removed from the location. This is certainly a caveat to the investigative process but it's still the best system. It's better than having false positives created by the investigators.
We had multiple video cameras and dedicated phantom powered/condenser microphones feed out from the home base. We had over 600 feet of audio and video cable available to us to isolate the human element from the investigation.
Below are images of our typical homebase:
Monitoring wasn't our only methodology during the investigation. We would periodically split into groups and document when, who & where in areas containing audio/video surveillance. We named this process as "dark vigils"
. One of us would have a stills camera and a portable audio recorder. We would rotate team members during these periods within the groups. By providing a variety of people, we felt different chemistry could stimulate activity.
