Bath Community School
Bath School Disaster - Bath, Mi.
Present day-A park now occupies the site
On May 18, 1927, 45 people, mostly children, were killed and 58 were injured when disgruntled and demented school board member Andrew Kehoe dynamited the new school building in Bath, Michigan out of revenge over his foreclosed farm due in part to the taxes required to pay for the new school.

10/2 & 10/8/2011
Temp: 62°/ 79°
Conditions: Sunny/ breezy both days
Equipment used: 3 camera's (1 full spectrum), 3 recorders, Ovilus X w/ DTD, Energy Speaker, "franks Box", ghost touch 1, 2- K-2 meters, 1-Anemometer, 1- EM pump, 1-digital EMF meter, thermometer.
This 2 day investigation to explore this location that is reportedly haunted since we are only an hour away. The first day intention was just get some pictures and test out some new equipment so it wasn't a full investigation. We had pre-recorded about 8 minutes of questions to use with the energy speaker and started the recording while setting up the ovilus/dtd unit. Recordings lasted approx. 55 minutes and during this time we walked the grounds taking pictures.
The second trip out was with investigator Joe who has been doing research there for years. Since he had more knowledge of the area he was lead investigator and briefed us of the location before we arrived. Once there we followed our pre-designated game plan on what equipment we would use and procedures we had to follow. At various times during the investigation we would break off into different teams to test different aspects of equipment and theories pertaining to paranormal activity in this area.
We did get several EVP's during our investigation including two that sounded like children screaming but they are very hard to hear without headphones, so we will not post them online. Our second investigation with Joe seems to be more productive.
During the second investigation, we did have the Ovilus change modes several times while using it. In all the times we used this equipment before and after we have never had that happen and we feel it may have been one of the children there playing with the equipment.
