Members of Emerald Coast Paranormal Concepts brought back the audio and video they analyzed to give the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce an idea of the possible spirits at the Russ House.
In addition to the audio files posted on www.jcfloridan.com, investigators Tracy and Susan Todd played additional audio files for Art Kimbrough, chamber president and CEO, and Mary Pettis, chamber executive vice president.
The files contained indistinguishable speech that had either a male or female sound to them. In one incident, the voice seemed to respond to Susan’s question of whether the spirits wanted the group to leave.
“I can pick up the rhythm of the sound, but I can’t distinguish it,” Kimbrough said after listening to one such recording.
Some of the audio files contained suspect sounds. The investigators asked Kimbrough and Pettis if the sounds came from any of the house’s electronics. Neither Kimbrough nor Pettis could think of anything.
One of the sounds was a sound like gunshots or cannon from the upstairs kitchen. The other sounded like sniffing or scraping near the recorder. Tracy said the scraping sound was heard on two separate recorders. When timed to the video camera also in the room, none of the room’s occupants had moved.
