Team Members:
Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Donna LaCroix, and Chris Fleming

Equipment used:
Thermal imaging camera, CCTV/infrared cameras, digital voice recorers, mini DVs, K-II meter, EMF detector, thermometer

Personal experiences: What did the investigators encounter at this location?

Jason:
While in the living room, Jason, Grant and Chris heard an unexplained noise coming from the kitchen. Upon investigating the freezer, they determined that it was not the ice maker, and were not able to find an explanation for the noise. While in another room in the home, Jason observed direct answers to questions using the K-II meter. Additionally, he observed a temperature drop, upon command to a temp of 62 degrees.

Grant:
Same experiences as Jason.

Steve:
While investigating in the bedroom, Steve asked for a sign of a presence and noticed some vertical blinds begin to move in response to the question. No breeze or other air current was noticed to cause the moving blinds.

Dave:
Same experinces as Steve and Jason with the K-II and thermometer readings.

Chris Fleming:
Chris introduced the K-II meter and managed to get direct responses to questions, including that the entity was purported to be a man *Jay Sebring" and that the homeowner had played with a ouijia board, in which the homeowner confirmed. Chris asked the entity to drop the temperature in the room from 69 degrees to 62 degrees which was recorded using a thermometer and documented.

Chris Fleming amazes Jason and Grant by having a "conversation" with a supposed entity, interpreting the flashes on the K-II meter as "responses" to questions. Through this, Fleming devines that the entity he is speaking with is Jay Sebring, one of the murder victims from the Charles Manson/Sharon Tate murders that occured next door. This is another thing that is out of character for the GH team. They often look for evidence that a specific individual is haunting the premises, but rarely do they ever conclude that it IS that person. Jason and Grant have warned in other episodes about not assuming an entity is a specific individual. They do get a couple of very dramatic EVP's, including female voices that sound as if they are in extreme distress. One seems to be saying "Take...take...take me to the light" or something similar, and the other appears to be sobbing while it speaks something unintelligible. I always love California Investigations, because it gets them out of the same old New England haunts (pun intended).

Now for the ugly part--one thing that is not disclosed in the GH episode is that the homeowner (David Oman) who lives in the house next door to the site of the Tate murders, the person who called TAPS in, is in fact a Hollywood producer who is promoting a movie called "The House at the End of the Street" - horror flick about a guy who moves in next door to the site of a brutal mass murder that took place in 1969 and now finds his new home haunted by the spirits of the murder victims....sound familiar? Either TAPS was used as unwitting promoters of Oman's movie or TAPS took the case knowing the show would become publicity for the film. It also makes on wonder what special effects the producer had access to that could fake evidence. All in all--the episode was very entertaining, but the movie promotion angle casts doubt on the authenticity of the evidence.

Not much out of the ordinary here except a weird FLIR hit that seemed to show something shaped like a human floating about 3 feet off the ground. Otherwise your typical GH episode, but more believable than the Manson Murders site.

It's too bad the show did not go more into the history of the studio. They mentioned that it began life as Charlie Chaplin'smovie studio, and that Perry Mason and Superman were filmed there, but it was also where Red Skelton filmed his variety show, and from 1981-1984 it is where Soul Train was shot.

The recording studion on the premises, now called Jim Henson Recordings, is the former A&M Records studio where some of the biggest recording artists in history made records. A&M was owned by Herb Alpert one of the top recording artists of the 1960's. Van Morrison, Styx, The Captain and Tenille, Joe Cocker, Soundgarden, The Police, Oingo Boingo, The Moody Blues, and the Carpenters all recorded there. Being a film studio, it also hosted The Police shooting the video for "Every Breath You Take" and Ray Parker Jr's music video for the theme song from "Ghostbusters" It was also the studio where the all-star benefit song "We Are The World" was recorded--both the original in 1985, as well as the 2010 remake version to raise money for Haiti.

It would have been nice to hear some of this information worked into the script for the GH episode. I had no idea until I researched it.

This was an interesting episode because the historical events took place during my lifetime rather than being the usual New England Revolutionary War history. It was also kind of and awkward episode. Just when the GH crew is ready for lights out, Chris Fleming pops into the picture. Jason introduces him as a "friend of the TAPS family" but Fleming's main claim to fame is as a psychic and "sensitive" who conducts seances. I'm surprised they included Fleming because TAPS usually discounts the value of psychics and sensitives in ghost hunting. Fleming brings with him a piece of equipment that is now part of the standard GH toolkit--it is the first appearance of the K-II (usually called K2) meter. The K-II meter does exactly the same thing as the digital EMF meter that they often use alongside the K-II (measures strength of EM Field in milligauss), so from purely an investigator's standpoint the K-II is not needed--in fact the EMF meter is more accurate because it reads in continuous values instead of needing the EMF field to be at a certain strength to light the next LED. The KII does have flashing lights though, so they probably still use it on the show because it's more dramatic on television. The camera can see it flash from across the room instead of needing to be focused on a digital display, and it's more "visual" than watching numbers rise and fall, so the crew settles for less accurate readings in the name of better television. Usually though they do not use it to measure EMF strength, only to pick up K-II "hits" However, Donna Lacroix has said the K-II often reacts to people using their walkies, so the evidence it gathers must be taken with a grain of salt.
