2017 is coming to a close!

2017 saw Cornerstone taking quite a bit of time away from the field. For various personal reasons (surgeries, vacations, other interests, etc) we decided to sit back and lay low and only do a few locations and events of particular interest. However, now that December has rolled around, we're taking stock of things and looking forward into 2018. We've decided to grow our team and have been recruiting new team members. That is a slow process for us, as we're very picky about who we work with and how we do things. People who are thrill seekers and want to spend a few hours investigation, but not putting in the behind the scenes efforts that we require simply don't do well with us.

We've also negotiated with one of our favorite locations in Cincinnati to go back and become the "house team" again. The Heritage Village, located in Sharon Woods, is by far the most unique location your team could ever investigate. It holds 12 buildings that have been moved from their original SW Ohio location to this one place for long term historical preservation. Each building has its own story, its own unique "things" and in many cases, its own paranormal revelations. Previously, our team has investigated this location on more than 30 locations, and rarely do we not have something or another of note happen while there. There has not been a paranormal investigation of the property in more than a year, so going back to see how things are now will be interesting. In early 2018, we'll be opening the property back up for private investigations and public tours as well with our team. Stay tuned for more information!

Roads Hotel Recap

The team traveled over for our sixth visit to Atlanta, Indiana to investigate the Roads Hotel. So why do we go back there? It's an interesting place. History of the building is fun to research. Activity at the building isn't overly impressive, but there is something about the place. Experienced, skeptical investigators have felt such an overwhelming urge to leave, that investigations have been cut short. Ghost Box responses (of which our team generally never uses) have been interesting in the past. EVPs and some DLSR photos have certainly been interesting. Here are a couple of thermal image captured just this past weekend. What do you think they show?
 The first photo is the top of the head of one of our investigators (white is hot, black is cold) and the cold spots above her head appeared and when we asked her to move away, those spots disappeared as well. The second photo shows another investigator talking about the cold spot to his left and he was moving his arm up and down to determine how big the cold spot felt. We can see how black it is. We think we also see something else.

We haven't fully reviewed our audio to see if we captured anything there, and we may decide these images ultimately do not show anything of interest. However, we currently believe we see something in these. As good investigators, we certainly are open to finding that our initial conclusions were flawed. We'll see if we find any audio to back up our theories.

2016 Here we come!

Well the new year is upon us. Our team took some time off for the holidays and to refresh ourselves. Now with the new year (and cold weather) we're ready to get out and start investigating and experiencing what may happen. We have some plans to visit Savannah, Ga, Gettysburg, The Roads Hotel, Poastown Elementary, Octagon Hall, Sedamsville Rectory and a few other spots. We'll be road tripping and staying close to home, and we might invite some family and friends along as well.

If you're an experienced investigator near one of these locations, would like to join us, or even have good ideas on places to visit, we're happy to hear about them!
Cornerstone Paranormal Flir thermal imagery
Cornerstone Paranormal Flir thermal imageryHere are a couple of photos from our thermal camera. One was taken randomly to just get a base reading of the room we were in. The other was taken because one of our investigators walked into the doorway you can see in the image and stated "wow, that was a cold spot you could really feel" so we took another snap of the image. Do you see the cold spot? In thermal imagery, you have different palette colors. Our team uses "white hot" because that is the easiest to distinguish hot/cold spots from each other. If white is hot, then the blacker it is, the colder it is. Now do you see the cold spot?

If you head over to our Facebook page you can see these images in a larger format and can interact with others about what you might be seeing. There is no trickery involved. It's just two thermal images, one taken when one of our investigators thought he experienced a cold spot, and the thermal camera verified he indeed did experience that.
