POTENTIAL EVIDENCE:
Narrative of clip:

Investigator 1: Jerry, something just pulled my backpack​

Investigator 2: Is that right?

This is immediately followed by a faint and unrecognizable voice that says, "No."

Investigator 3: ​​Yea, there is something on me, too.

Another unexplained voice: Words unknown

​​
Narrative of clip:

Male investigator is talking to other investigators but as he ends his conversation and his voice begins to fade, a group of voices replaces it with what sounds to be some type of chant.

It begins with, "All the Spirits ...

As to what else, I have a few different thoughts. If you have an idea, put your thoughts in the guest book, below the picture at right.

Grave site for residents of the former Faribault State Hospital
Narrative of clip:

Unexplained voice: Get Out
(Sounds almost mechanical)​

This is immediately followed by one of the guests who states: Let me step outside...

Is it a coincidence that ​​​the man felt the urge to step outside immediately following the EVP wishing for someone's presence to be removed.

​​
Narrative of clip:

This cat-like sound was heard on the tape a few times (at the building pictured below). There also were similar sounds that I am guessing were bats, and trees swaying and rubbing against each other in the breeze. But, the unique tone on these caught my attention.

Note: At the time, the digital player had been placed in the back of the building while the group was all in the front of the building.

Narrative of clip:

Unexplained female voice/murmur.
Narrative of clip:

Sounds almost like ping pong balls (may be from one of the pieces of equipment operating), but came not long after one of the investigators asked for a knock response. I do not recall hearing this sound during the investigation.

​​Note: At the time, the digital player had been placed in the back of the building while the group was all in the front of the building.

Narrative of clip:

Immediately following an investigators saying excellent, a strange whistle is heard.
