The Investigation:

As we walking through the entrance of Bachelor's Grove Cemetery we could tell there was something not quite right. We both had a very weird feeling of being watched.
The air was really thick with energy, we could just feel it. We had never had this feeling at Bachelor's Grove Cemetery before.

We sat down our equipment at one end of the cemetery and begun our walk of the grounds. Donna took the Non-Contact Thermal Scanner and I took the Gauss Meter. At our previous investigation of the cemetery, we picked up temperature variations at a specific location. Donna had briefly picked up these readings again in the same location as before. We noted this information and went along.

We noted several instances where we would hear sounds coming from one specific part of the cemetery near the entrance where a dead tree had fallen. We took several readings of this area, but were not able to get any conclusive results. At one point, we noticed someone walking down the trail to the cemetery. We could only see parts of them as they walked down the trail in back of the fallen tree. We waited for a few seconds but no one ever came to the entrance. We went to the entrance ourselves and looked down the trail but no one was there.

Later, I took the camcorder down the trail where we were experiencing some temperature fluctuations. As I walked down the trail I noticed the figure of a small boy standing to the right of me. He looked to be around 8 - 10 years old. He stood there looking at me while I continued taping. After about 2 minutes he seemed to fade into the background and I couldn't see him anymore. I continued down the trail, turned around and went back up the trail. As I was walking up the trail I noticed the boy again only this time he was sitting next to a tree with his arms around his legs and his chin on his knees. As I continued watching him and taping he would move his chin from his knees and put his forehead on his knees as though he was trying to hide from me. After taping him for a few minutes I continued up the trail. As I moved past him, I noticed that he faded away again. That was the last time I seen him until we reviewed the tape. The tape did not reveal the boy very good while he was standing up, but you can see him very good on the second encounter.


While we were there we felt like guests who had outstayed our welcome. We were only there for an hour and fifteen minutes, but in that time we caught more on video and photo's that we had on other investigations here so we felt we should leave.
