Hauntings at Oakwood...

SEPTEMBER 16, 2011

This is a narative precluding the below video

Our adventures take the Santa Cruz Ghost Hunters to the Oakwood Memorial Cemetery behind Dominican Hospital, in Santa Cruz County. On this night we encounter an entity by the name of John – an entity with a good sense of humor, who begins to communicate with us through the following devices:

   a K-2 meter, a ghost radar, which presents actual words in real time on a handheld device, and a small flashlight. We begin with yes and no questions. Yes answers present themselves by the entity by either turning on the flashlight or illuminating the K-2 meter. No answers provide no response at all.

At one point, the ghost radar picks up the words "PEACE,” an interesting response to Aubrey's question. Later, we encounter another entity, who wants to make his or her presence known when the words “SMITH” appears on the ghost radar. Immediately, investigators Melissa and Maryanne begin walking the cemetery and are drawn to a small patch of headstones that lay nearby. Within moments, Melissa and Maryanne each separately discover headstones kitty-corner from one another – one with the name John Dawson, and the other with Walter Smith. Both men passed away within the same year, 1948, and interestingly enough Walter Smith's date of birth was Feb. 22, while John Dawson's date of death was Feb. 23. 


A little while later, investigator Aubrey Graves begins to feel the sensation of sticky cobwebs on her face and arms. Note that she was nowhere near a spiderweb. When we ask the entity Walter Smith if he had touched Aubrey we receive a positive response.

Please note: The following video is actual footage from our investigation. The video has not been altered, nor has Photoshop been used to create the responses recorded. The flashlight is a standard mini mag with no remote control and no one touching it. There are four investigators and one guest present. The guest had never been on a ghost hunt before.

Everything that is happening is real!
