We were incredibly honored to be the first paranomal investigative team into Pocatello High School. We'd like to thank School District #25 and the Idaho State Journal and Old Town Pocatello for getting us into the school.
In the library, Lisa saw a shadow up by the dome on the ceiling. It was not a vehicle’s lights. Bret in the library, at a different time, had seen the same shadow and heard footsteps.
On the stage, Ian, Nicole, and Lisa asked questions. Nicole asks, “Were you a drama student?” and all three of us heard a very audible, breathy “Yes.” It was captured lightly on the digital recorder. Also on the stage looking out towards the auditorium, Lisa and Ian saw vertical lines of light several times. It was not any of us, and wasn’t from underneath the stage. Nicole was trying to get her video camera to pick up on it, but it wouldn’t focus. Lisa saw a shadow in front of the stage. There is a image captured on the balcony with a thin line from top to bottom.
In the girls’ locker room, we had a few of us at either end of the row of lockers. Nicole and Lisa heard whispering (they thought it was Bret but he wasn’t whispering), Lisa hear noises and what sounded like humming. None of these sounds we heard were captured digitally. Nicole had the camera focused down on the others at the opposite end of the lockers. It started having a hard time focusing without movement on their part, so Bret took a few steps forward and hit a cold spot. Scott also felt the cold spot.
In the basement, Bret was sitting cross legged against the wall. He felt a cold spot to his right and it hovered then it moved right in front of him. He called Scott over and Scott felt the cold spot.
After the investigation: We could not find one of the digital thermometers. We knew the last time anyone had seen it was on our base table mid way thru the investigation. While loading up the equipment we checked all the major areas of investigation (small gym, library, etc.) but it was not found. Several days later Nicole and Scott returned to Pocatello High to review findings with the Principal. One of the janitors (Reed) was there and informed them that they had found a piece of equipment on the third floor at the end of a hall in a window well. To our knowledge, none of the investigators that night had been in that particular area. The closest any of us had been was about 10 feet to the window well and no one had stopped in the area, just in passing had walked in the area.
Image in Auditorium- Normally this digital image wouldn't impress us, except for that this is exactly what investigators were seeing from the stage- a long thin vertical line as if it were from a crack in the door. Click on the image below to see a larger version.
