Investigation & Evidence
In this EVP session, the NoVA SPIs team (Lori, Nancy, Kathy, Tiffany) was in the Winter Kitchen in the basement of the mansion. You will hear a response right at the 1:01
(1 minute and 1 second) spot on the audio. We were told by the owner of the Bed & Breakfast that she would come down to the basement and sing... 'My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean,' so we decided that we would perform our own rendition of this song....When we finished, you will hear what we think is a response. Let us know what you think is being said. Kathy, Tiffany, and Nancy actually hear the voice, but Lori, who was holding the video camera, did not. The response was also on both recorders we had running, but it was not heard on the video camera that Lori was holding.
