This was SJGR's 2nd investigation of historic Laurel Hill Cemetery, located in Philadelphia, PA.  Click HERE to view the results of our first investigation.

The SJGR team determined the use of IR Thermometers on this investigation would be lead to too many inconclusive and false positive readings due to the marble headstones and structures, and were therefore not used. 

Much of this investigation was spent in specific locations in an attempt to gather information about these spirits.  Some Investigators spent a great deal of time at Lt. Benjamin H. Hodgson's grave site, a soldier who was killed at the Little Bighorn, conducting EVP recordings in conjunction with sensitive investigators.   While other investigators stayed down Millionaire's Row around the Moehring mausoleum.

Another group led by Jamie Eachus gathered a lot of psychic impressions about one area in particular that seemed to jive with other impressions Christine Clendaniel was picking up as well.   Their impressions and the story it told seemed to make a lot of sense to some of the cemetery staff who had their own feelings about this area.

About 8% of the investigators' photos were deemed positive, which is above average and can be an indicator that there is spirit activity present.   No EVPs were recorded during this trip.  There were also no positive EMF readings nor motion sensor alarm readings recorded during this visit.
