On December 17th of 2006 the Berkshire Paranormal group met to investigate a private residence located in Pittsfield MA. This case was referred to the BPG after the apartment’s resident contacted investigator Nick Mantello about being fearful in her own apartment after a series of events that took place. The resident stated that items inside her apartment would mysteriously move when she was not looking and she would regularly experience strange feelings. The resident stated she no longer slept in the apartment on a regular basis because of these happenings and was seeking our help.
Prior to the investigation members Josh and Steph Mantello along with Paul Oleskiewicz met the renter to speak with her about what was happening and how we could help. The apartment’s renter expressed how she was very concerned about what was happening in her apartment. She stated she would remember leaving things in one objects in one place and when she looked again it would be placed somewhere else. She also stated that once in the shower she had a feeling of some unknown presence pressing against the shower curtain. Another account given to us was that once while brushing her hair she had a brush knocked out of her hand and the hand the felt tingly. At this time we looked around the apartment and was able to see that it was quite small consisting of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, large closet, and bedroom with closet. We also learned from the renter that due to some sort of electrical problem there is no electricity in part of the kitchen and entire bedroom and bathroom. Prior to leaving the apartment we supplied the client with a copy of a house cleansing prayer to help assist her.
