Paranormal Cops- Messages from Beyond – S01E06
A fellow Police officer calls Ron and team in to help him uncover the mysteries surrounding his night job as a security officer at a banquet hall.
The Park Place banquet hall has been experiencing shadow figures, hearing footsteps and getting the sense that someone is there. Most of the activity seems to be taking place in the ladies bathroom, however, since the banquet hall is built on the site of three former homes there wasn’t always a ladies restroom there.
The evidence captured is extremely slight. Like previous episodes pretty much everything is coming from Moriah. She has a police artist sketch the spirits she feels are still in the building. Even though Moriah feels a presence they don’t capture evidence to support that. They don’t get any shadow figures, or capture footsteps or any unusual behavior in the restroom which is supposed to be hotspot of activity. As the client states, at least four people have seen a figure in there. There are also no EVP fluctuations, no bangs or strange sounds.
The big piece of evidence is a massive temperature drop they experience as they’re trying to talk with Frank (the police officer) to see if there is a message they can deliver for him. The part that bothers me here is that they don’t focus on the temperature gauge at all. They show one shot of it, but it’s from way off to the side. Why couldn’t they focus on it and show us all what’s going on? It almost seems like they’re hiding the thermometer from us.
In the final analysis they claim to get two EVPs. One is a voice saying "Thank You" and another is "Take the gun back". As always, they’re garbled and could be interpreted dozens of different ways. I don’t agree with those findings but I guess it’s all subjective.
But when it comes down to the final disposition I’m actually quite shocked with how they rate this location. They give it a Code 4 or basically they feel 100% sure there is a haunting going on. I understand this episode involves a police officer, but I seriously think they let their sentimentality get in the way of their analysis. The only truly tangible thing they get is a cold spot, and once again, due to the camera angles and not letting us see exactly what’s going on and what the reading is being taken from even that could be suspect.
I don’t think CPD stuck with their mantra of basing their decision off hard evidence.
And that’s the end of the season…
As a side note, I hope Paranormal Cops is coming back for another season. They have some interesting techniques. I don’t feel they captured anything that is going to make someone a believer, but I do like their more level headed approach to things. Based on my previous post I think the future of Paranormal Cops is still up in the air.
