As seen on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
In this particular evening there were 4 of us on this outing. Lafayette cemetery is said to be the home of Vampire grave. There is a grave located on the north side of the cemetery with the head stone written in Romanian. We have no evidence of this being a Vampire or anything paranormal. As a whole, however, the cemetery does have a very energetic feeling. The evening this photo was taken the air was very thick. As we pulled into the parking lot we all noticed it was darker than normal. We all migrated out of my car and to the back, where I keep my tackle box of batteries, and loaded our cameras. We took test shots to make sure things were okay and headed into the cemetery. About 20 feet into the cemetery we all noticed our cameras had stopped working. All of our batteries were dead. We regrouped to head back to the car to change batteries again. We, again, reloaded our batteries, checked the meters for strength and took some test shots. Everything seemed to be fine. Again, about 20 feet into the cemetery our cameras started acting up again. As a whole I only got 3 shots total before I lost all battery power. This was one of the pictures.
AAPI has been fortunate once again to appear on The History Channels' MEGA MOVERS series. We were asked to investigate and report on the Meyers Cabin, in Conifer, and investigate in front of their cameras. We were very fortunate to have full access to the cabin and barn before they were both moved to there present location, closer to the beautiful Victorian home off of Co. Hwy 285 in Conifer. The schedule of the show can be seen by accessing The History Channels website. Thanks again, 44 Blue Productions, for the opportunity.
Spirit standing inside medium
This evening we were present there seemed to be an entity that did not agree with one of us. IT is protocol that when you feel threatened and/or in danger, you leave the area and head for safety. With one individual, safely, in the vehicle, the others carried 2 way radios for communication while the party in the vehicle acted as security and recorded notes on the laptop. During the outing our medium became very agitated and started feeling cramp. As she was bent over in pain, this shot was taken. We can plainly see the 3 individuals present, however, there seems to be a figure of a girl standing inside, looking to the right, of the medium. Also, what she seems to be looking at is a ectoplasmic form starting to take shape. In the photo, from right to left: investigator standing, ectoplasmic form, girl standing in medium, the medium bent over looking down, 2 nd investigator shining a light.

Ghost child in doorway
Ridge Home, constructed in the 1930's was built as a mental institution and experimental hospital for mental rehabilitation. Many stories state strong sexual abuse between staff and patients. An account of a young boy who normally was chained to a wall due to excessive energy was allowed to run free for a couple of hours. During this period he was struck by a moving vehicle and killed. Many delivery drivers tell of the smell of soiled linens and rancid flesh, from unclean patients, floating through the air. In the basement, it is said, experiments of brain washing by water being dripped on foreheads of patients as well as accounts of electric shock therapy. Walking through the remains of the building definitely give a very sad and negative feeling.
Featured AAPI EVP of the Month
Old Montana Prison
AAPI was fortunate enough to have been invited to the Old Montana Prison, Deer Lodge Montana. We are currently evaluating the data collected from this location, but have several EVP's from this location we would like to share. The full report will be finished very shortly. A hard copy will be sent to the Prison as well as posted here on this site. Boyd Gutebier's tour. 2 hours, 27 minutes. We were extremely fortunate to have had Boyd give us the tour of the old prison. His knowledge and memory of being an actual prison guard proved to be very enlightening. We have separated out 22 individual EVP’s and noise anomalies from just this 2 ½ hour tour.
The source for the EVP's is MP3 format. They are sampled using audio manipulating software to section out the EVP from it's original recording. You will hear the section of the recording in which the EVP is located. Then 2 more sections of just the EVP by itself. Followed by a 10% amplification at regular speed. 10% amplification at 10% reduced speed finishing with a 10% amplification at 25% reduced speed.

The American Association of Paranormal Investigators was fortunate enough to head to Montana to investigate the ‘Old Montana Prison’ at Deer Lodge. The event was hosted by AAPI Affiliate Karen Stevens who is writing her paranormal experiences in upcoming books. AAPI and Karen are exchanging data in hopes to give the Prison a formal report of accounts and paranormal activity. The prison, to date, has had many paranormal groups visit and tour the prison but none have yet to give a complete formal report. We hope our official report will help others understand what a treasure this prison is to the paranormal community.
