Okanagan Case #001: Preliminary Investigation, Private Residence

Date:  Jan. 23, 2016

Location:  Rutland area, Kelowna B.C.

Claims:  feeling watched; confused; tired; sad and drained; doors opening and objects falling from cupboards; awakened at night by voices and noises; odd or strange dreams; unusual behaviour of animals residing in the home.

Investigators: Robyn, Pat


Rutland is a community of approximately 35,000 residents inside the City of Kelowna. 150 years ago, the areas now known as Rutland, Black Mountain, and the Mission Valley up to Joe Rich, were known as N’Wha-quisten, meaning the “Valley of the Smoothing Stones”. Black Mountain itself was the source for rocks used make arrowheads, flints and spears. The first white settlement occurred approximately around 1858 when a wagon train came through headed for the gold fields. The sight of the oxen and wagons left and indelible impression upon the local natives, and it was to be the end of their isolation. Rumours that early white settlers discovered a buried building and artifacts that might lead suspicion that the Spanish (from California) may have been in the Rutland area at some time around 1800.

The client’s home is located in an area notorious for its share of negativity and conflict that is rooted in the past. Today, the residents and city work together to clean up the area and improve the reputation garnered by negative media coverage and past occurrences.

The Preliminary Interview

The investigators arrived at the home at approxmately 1pm to begin the preliminary interview and take baseline EMF readings.  The home is small, consisting of a main floor and basement suite. The client resides on the main floor with her dog, two cats, and a roommateate who is currently in the process of moving out. The client believes the house to be around 40 to 50 years old and original to the street.

The client informed us of her belief that the occurrences she is experiencing may have a connection to the roommate’s deceased husband, who passed away suddenly. The client reached this conclusion because most of the activity seems to involve the roommate: no previous activity was occurring prior to the roommate moving in; activity seems to be concentrated the roommate’s room; the client has had dreams where she was given a message to pass on to the roommate in the form of a “pet name”; the client’s dog growls and displays unusual behaviour toward photos of the roommate’s deceased husband; the roommate seems unable to accept the death.

The investigators were also informed of the sighting of an apparition of two people of Chinese descent clothed in burlap and huddled in a corner , as well as a shadow figure seen in the basement suite by past tenants. The investigators interviewed the current basement-suite tenants; those tenants reported no experiences.

No unusual EMF spikes were recorded. However, after hearing a few unexplained banging noises which coincided with the investigators’ prompting, a quick spirit box session was conducted, and it provided a few interesting responses – most notably, the word “Bye” when they said they were leaving.

Investigation results will be provided after the data has been fully reviewed and analyzed and the client has been informed.

Location:  Private Residence

Investigators:  Holly, Shae, Cristine, K-9 investigator Glimmer

Case Status:  Closed

Location Status: inconclusive

Investigation with Glimmer

Holly, Shae, and Christine arrived at the location at approximately 8pm.  As per an earlier discussion between the team and the clients, the clients were not present when the team and Glimmer arrived.  The clients provided the team with an entry key.

Beginning with the main floor, Glimmer was taken on a slow but thorough walk-through of the entire home to help her familiarize herself with the location.  Christine filmed the process and Shae took readings with the Mel Meter.  On the main floor, appliances were found to be within normal ranges; an extension cord with several electronics plugged into it did exhibit a momentary high reading, but then it settled to within normal ranges.  Glimmer did not exhibit any unusual behaviors on the main floor.

The team headed upstairs.  Glimmer immediately went towards the child’s room. She sniffed at various toys and she touched some of them, but overall, she did not exhibit any unusual behaviors.  There were no unusual responses from her in any other room on the second floor, nor were there any unusual responses in the basement.

The team had been investigating for approximately 90 minutes when the clients returned home.  At their arrival, the investigation was wrapped, as Glimmer became excited and would not focus on her job.  This is a normal aspect of her character that we have learned to accept. However, we are continuing to work on reducing the intensity of it.


No audio or video was captured to validate the claims being made by the clients. However, the team agrees that because of the documented deaths in the area itself, it is entirely possible that there may be various energies moving across the land and through the townhouse complexes at random times.  This was explained to the clients; they were relieved to learn there is nothing harmful in their home.


Because we did not capture any viable data to validate the possible presence of any energies, we have deemed this case as closed. However, we have reassured the clients that they can contact us if they start having trouble again.

We would like to extend our thanks to our clients for their hospitality to us, and for allowing us to bring Glimmer into their home.


Since our first investigation at this private residence, our clients have been experiencing an increase in activity that now occurs on the main floor, as well as in their child’s room.  This Saturday (Nov. 28), Christine, Shae, and Holly are returning to the location – this time, with Glimmer – to conduct a second investigation.  Our hope is that not only will Glimmer be able to pick up on the source of the activity, she will also be able to draw it out and (hopefully) interact with it.

We expect to spend several hours at the location.  To help minimize the potential for noise contamination, as well as to help Glimmer focus on doing her job, our clients have agreed to vacate the premises for the duration of the investigation.

Results will be posted after the investigation is complete and we have shared our findings with our clients.
