o As the session continued for Rob, Traci, Well and Cody in the office area, Traci and Wellington remarked that they had heard what sounded like some sort of exhale. Steve, who was listening remotely, confirmed that he had heard it as well. This was not captured on audio, however.
o As the session went on, Traci was talking with Wellington about the date of an upcoming case, and Cody heard what sounded like a response after Traci said “March 5th” and marked the audio. What he captured is a breathy voice saying “yea” in response. This is captured in audio clip 17.
o During the session conducted by Traci, Cody, Wellington and Rob in the bar area, members of the group on more than one occasion reported that they heard a female voice in the bar area.
o During their time in the bar, as Cody was listening real time to his audio recorder, he recorded what sounded like a female giggling or laughing. When he relayed what he had heard, Wellington claimed he had heard it as well. When listening to this clip, you will hear a compressor turn on and then a few seconds after you will hear the female giggle. This is captured in audio clips 4 (Traci’s audio) and 18 (Cody’s audio)
o Shortly after, Traci and Cody heard what sounded like a loud exhale in the bar area. This was captured in audio clip 19.
o The group heard what sounded like someone clinking on a glass. This sound was captured by Traci in audio clip 5 and by Wellington in audio clip 15.
o As Traci, Wellington, Rob and Cody were investigating in the bar area, Wellington asked if whoever was present had something to tell Adam or Pete. All of the investigators heard what sounded like a female say “yes.” Unfortunately this was not captured on audio.
Based on the audio evidence captured and the personal experiences of investigators present at the Onyx Distillery investigation, it is the feeling of the TAPS Home Team that there is some sort of paranormal activity at the facility. Audio evidence suggests the presence of at least one male and a female.
It is not possible to determine the exact nature or reason for the activity. It is possible that objects in the bar and distillery do have some form of spirit attachment. It is also possible, that due to the long history in the building, former workers of the factory are present. A follow up investigation would allow the team to gather more evidence and could lead to more information as to who is present and why. If this is something that the owners, Adam and Pete, are interested in they are urged to contact Traci to set up a follow up.
The TAPS Home Team thanks both Adam and Pete for having them in and for their hospitality.
