Virginia Paranormal Group Searches Historical Shenandoah Valley

The Supernatural Investigators of Virginia have been ghost hunting in suspected haunted homes and buildings all over Virginia since 2006. This weekend the investigators invited NBC29 on one of their searches in the Shenandoah Valley.

On Saturday night, the group investigated the Miller-Kite House, an old home in Elkton that once served as a headquarters for Stonewall Jackson. The home, which is now a museum, played a significant role during the Civil War, and some say the soldiers that visited the house then are still there.

The group uses a handful of devices that measure electromagnetic fields. The members call one type of haunting an "intelligent haunting" in which the investigators ask questions to solicit answers from spirits. "Is there anyone here with us?" Or they ask, "Are you a soldier?"

No answers come right away, but after the investigators take the recordings home to listen for clues, they found something. The first, a man saying "hello." Then, if you listen carefully to the digital recording, you can hear a person whisper "thank you." And in one more, the investigators hear someone say "Let's get out of here."

"I'd say probably like 80 percent of the time we do find at least electronic voice phenomena," said investigator Tracey Burnett.

The group does not get paid for the investigations; the members consider it a hobby.
