The investigation got started late, as usual, so we didn't have as much time on-site we normally would. And technical problems limited the amount of data we were able to broadcast.
The site in question was an old church that is now the "Rialto Historical Society Museum" at 201 N. Riverside Ave in Rialto, California. The church was built around 1901. It's a very stylish building with design elements that really enhance the personal experience and probably enhance paranormal experiences. Even though it's a fairly small building, it's easy to become disoriented and get yourself lost. Inside the church basement, there are hundreds of historic artifacts, from a Louisville Slugger, to an antique doll collection, spinning wheel, telephone switchboard, and the old tricycle hiding under a table.
The stories of this building are endless. From a vaporous apparition seen by two police officers, to disembodied sobbing, voices, and footsteps, to objects being moved, and the image of a little girl looking out a window. Their is a memorial inside to a little girl, Kristina Henrickson, whose ashes were kept in the church after her death in 1967. The little girl in the window bore a striking resemblance to the painting and photograph of Kristina. Psychics report the presence of multiple entities in nearly every part of the building. There is even a store room where one psychic becomes fearful and compelled to leave.
Some time ago, two psychics were brought in at separate times without being told of the other psychic. Both psychics reportedly described suprisingly similar information and details. The BIM team actually had an opportunity to walk around with both psychics trying to capture EVP's or other phenomenon that they might lead us to. Before the investigation, we spent almost an hour interviewing both psychics regarding their experiences at the church and the paranormal world in general.
We will be reviewing all the data over the next several weeks and compiling a summary of our findings. We will also be printing excerpts from the manuscript written by the President of the Rialto Historical Society about his paranormal experiences and several others.
Because of the very unusal rush that we were in to get this investigation in and the lack of desired camera coverage, BIM may decide to return on a weekend and perform a followup investigation.
