A haunting in Vallejo

Posted on Wednesday, 24 February, 2010 | 0 comments
Columnist: Paul Dale Roberts

The date is February 6, 2010, Saturday and I have my investigative team heading over to Vallejo. 37 Balboa Avenue to be exact. HPI Researcher Laurie Rutledge of England discovered some interesting facts about this residence. The notorious Good Servant Orphanage has a connection to this property. It is said that the orphans were used to work this land. The orphans went through all kinds of torture from lobotomies, to electrical shocks to the brain to whippings. It is kind of odd, that one of the apparitions seen by Carolann Castro (occupant) is a small girl with brunette hair that zips here and there in her home. Could it be that some of the orphans from this notorious orphanage haunt this property? Another factor that Laurie discovered is that the Suisun Indians roamed this land and collected mystical rocks. Unusual rocks are found on this property. One rock that was discovered is a rock with a star shape. Another rock was the Heart of Stone rock. An actual rock that looks like a human heart and was featured on Coast to Coast AM.

To see pictures of this investigation and see a group shot of the (HPI Vallejo Entity Extraction Unit):

HPI Paranormal Investigators that showed up for this investigation are: Tom and Kathy, Chantal Apodaca, Jennifer Newell, Kathy and Steve Foulk, Deborah and James Baughman, Teri Villarreal, Connie Brenner, Lynn Combs and Christian Scott.

Observers (friends of Carolann Castro) are: Kristen Logan, Jessica Ryan, Jeff Hobbs.

Note: Jennifer Newell and Kathy have psychic abilities and are free roamers, to see what they can pick up on. Kathy & Steve Foulk, Deborah & James Baughman are with Lincoln Paranormal Investigators. Connie Brenner & Lynn Combs are with En-Vision Paranormal. Teri Villarreal and Carolann Castro are with Soulseekers Paranormal Research.

Carolann Castro gave us a full tour of her home. This home is very unique; it has secret passageways and cubbyholes where entities can easily hide. There is a lot to explore in this home and the short time that we are here; we have already gotten mist in our photos and unusual designer type of orbs. Note: Photos will be fully analyzed and still shots of orb photos are not considered paranormal.

Carolann Castro gave my team a briefing of the activity in her home and in Carolann’s own words is her briefing below. Carol take it away:

“My husband Greg and I and our ten week old puppy moved into our home Halloween weekend of 1999. Two weeks later we were in our bedroom watching the news when our puppy jumped up and darted to the front door barking in a mean way, while the front door opened we heard two people, it sounded like a man and a lady talking back to each other and we heard their footsteps. No one was in the house but us. We have seen many shadow people on my front porch.. My husband would get up at 4AM to go to work and would lie on the couch in our great room, he felt the temperature drop and felt someone standing over him. One time I was followed home by a little boy entity from the Carquinez cemetery. Foot steps have been heard going up my stairs to the attic also footsteps walking around. Temperature dropped one night early around 6PM or so I asked for them to show themselves, my bedroom door slammed shut shaking my walls in the hall way. Our roommate saw a tall long haired blonde who was coming out of my bedroom, walking down the hall toward the bathroom, when he called out his girlfriend’s name, which was out in the garage room. His girlfriend was in the recording studio and felt a hand on her shoulder.

My husband and I, at different times saw what could have been a child shorter than five feet tall, with short brown hair, running in the back hallway to the sliding glass door leading to the back yard.

My dog, Dozer will alert me when something is amiss in my home. He will grab a shoe or a sock and go running with it. When I grab my camera I get orbs playing with him. I have also had knocking at my front door when there is no one there. The temperature drops a lot in my home where there is no windows open".

After the first session of our investigation, we had a briefing to see what evidence we acquired. Here is what we found on the first investigation:

Christian Scott’s Own Words:
“Using a Quantum Vox Converter found fluctuations that put out the following words: field, Paul, policeman, Mary, mirror and point. Several different signals in and around the house. Specifically the field behind the house had several anomalies passing through, seen with radar and sonar.” Note: Christian's Quantum Vox Converter said my name twice and stated I was once a policeman, when in fact I was a military policeman at one time.

Carolann Castro and I witnessed a loud knocking on the window and there was no one there. Her small dog started barking like crazy, this happened at 9:36pm. My Toshiba laptop was unplugged by itself earlier in the night and there was no one that could have unplugged my Toshiba. It takes a good yank to unplug the laptop from Carolann’s outlet.

Deborah Baughman received an EVP of a man saying “kill” after she was talking about the mystic rocks that were found in the backyard.


As we continue on our 2nd investigative session, my teams Team Colts and Team Saints move into areas of the home that they have not investigated yet, including the outside perimeters.

Equipment being used tonight is: temperature gauges, thermal camera, digital cameras, EMF Readers, Ghost Radar, K2 readers, digital audio recorders.

Kathy and Chantal were in the bedroom and they asked the angels on a hanging string to move. They asked the 1st angel on the string to move and it moves. Then they asked the 2nd angel on a string to move and it moved. There was no breeze. This experiment may have shown intelligence. The EMF Reader spiked during the angel movement. Deborah took 3 pictures in sequence and all 3 photos show a moving orb flying out the door. EVP is captured, man's voice saying "hello there". Huge knocking sound is heard from underneath bed and the bird in the cage starts acting crazy. Knocks are heard on bedroom wall. Thermal camera fogs up for no apparent reason and this happens in one of the active bedrooms.

Cold spots, temperature changes are felt. Photographic anomalies, strange shadows and designer orbs. Pictures were taken when K2 meter would spike and the shadows and orbs would appear. Verbal verifications on K2 meter. Intelligent responses to questions on the Ghost Radar. EVP captured and it sounded like possible Indian chanting. On the Quantum Box Converter we received words that coincide to this property and those words were: tree, corn, Paul, sharp, William, knife, bow, surprise, farmer and hurt. It is suspected that corn was grown on this property. Knife and bow would coincide to the Suisun Indians.

Most of the evidence was circumstantial. The EVPs are unexplained. 9 EVPs were captured this night. I do believe there is paranormal activity at this home. While my rough draft was LIVE on Facebook, the rough draft of this story instantly received 65 hits and a Texas paranormal group called me after reading the rough draft and their psychic kept feeling that the San Francisco Zodiac is somehow connected to this property. We found no evidence that the Zodiac is connected to this property, but an interesting note is that the occupant Carolann Castro and her husband actually were extras in the Zodiac movie.

Below is HPI News and Updates:

Erich von Daniken says:
"Ezekiel gives precise details of the landing of this vehicle. He describes a craft that comes from the North, emitting rays and gleaming and raising a gigantic cloud of desert sand. Now the God of the Old Testament was supposed to be omnipotent. Then why does this almighty God have to come hurtling up from a particular direction? Cannot he be anywhere he wants without all this noise and fuss?"

Paul says in answer to Daniken's questions:
Erich, you are absolutely right. If God is omnipotent, why would he have to come from a certain direction, raising up all that desert sand from some kind of flying machine? This leads me to only one conclusion, that ancient mankind were visited by extraterrestrials, there are too many inconsistencies in our Bible that suggest that God is not omnipotent and if that is the case, we are talking about alien intervention, plain and simple.

Astral Projecting Assassin
I received a call from a Jonathan Turner in Los Angeles on February 3, 2010. Jonathan claims that a woman he used to date is now trying to kill him by astral projection. He claims his former girlfriend has learned how to leave her body in astral form. She is also able to explode his heart from within. It sounds like his former girlfriend saw the movie "The Men Who Stare at Goats." Since I do not live in Los Angeles, I referred him to Lady Merquet - Dark Witch. Lady Merquet makes claim she has a blocking spell that can cast off assassinating astral projections.

Donna Crayne - Psychic with the Gift of DiscernmentShe has her own website now at: - She has been providing HPI with some possible alien gray and demonic photos. The photos are being analyzed by researchers and investigators on Facebook. If you wish to read about her UFO encounter, stop by here:

Chantal Apodaca gave me some important updates to this article for accuracy. Chantal states:

1. The man's voice on our EVP that said "hello there" and "kill" was seen in a vision by Carolann as a tall thin Caucasian man wearing a black suit and top hat. Carolann describes him as a negative entity.

2. Little Brian that drowned, age 7, our psychic Jennifer Newell picked up the age of the child. The ghost of Brian came to Carolann and she tried to help him cross over. In order for Brian to cross over, Brian's two older brothers that witnessed his drowning had to ask for forgiveness, Carolann had to contact them and told them what was needed to be done. They ask for forgiveness and Brian crossed over.

3. A friend of Samoan heritage worked on their home, took a rock from their backyard. The rock displayed a star in the middle. The friend went through traumatic times after taking the rock and lost his job, became unhealthy and his wife left him within 2 days. The friend brought back the rock after all this tragedy befell him.

4. After the EVP was captured "hello there", then the investigators changed rooms and immediately after asking for the entity to knock on the wall, they heard a knocking on the cabinet door.

Special Note: Thank you to Carolann for all the snacks, sodas, coffee and refreshments that she provided for the team. At the end of the night, I conducted a Catholic blessing of the house and Carolann has reported the activity has subsided and the atmosphere feels light in her home. She was able to get a good night sleep after we left.

Malik Jamerson of Seaside, CA just reported that he moved into a new home in Seaside with his girlfriend. On a nightly basis they are seeing USOs come out of the Monterey Bay and hover over the bay. They will 'power up', they will zip here and there, they will vanish before their eyes. They also split up. Example: Mother ship will split into 3 smaller disc UFOs and the 3 other UFOs will zip away. The UFOs are various colors. One UFO was rectangle in shape. They are seen around 9pm and 10pm on a nightly basis, but sometimes they are seen during the day. Other residents of Monterey and Seaside are seeing the same UFOs. We will be investigating this case.
