We are going to be doing some hunts soon and I just returned from a scouting mission deep into the Sierra Nevadas at a spot we have had many strange encounters at over the past several years. I won’t get into the exact location, but it is sufficient to say that we will be doing more research into the exact history of this location. I can say that it is extremely high in the Sierras and will soon be snowed in. Our first full time investigation will be sometime in Spring/Summer of 2018 because it will take that long to get in once the snow melts!
We are in the process of reviewing ALL of our old cases and will be doing Youtube videos of the cases we did from 2006 to 2013 and know for a fact there are a number of cases where we had unprocessed evidence. All of these cases will be put on our Youtube channel over the course of the coming year and I hope you enjoy what we present.
We also put a page up with references to our national exposure here on this site and our older “historical” GRI web site is now back up and running with all of our old case files accessible to this site for reference. Note that we have literally THOUSANDS of EVPs on file and the old site has only a small percentage of our total evidence captures.
We’ll be running an investigation soon and I’ll be in contact with old team members to see who wants to join in for a local case. More information soon.

These are some of the best EVPs we’ve ever captured. We have an extensive library of EVPs captured over a period of 7 years and will share more as cases come along and we gather more great evidence.
Each EVP link will have a story behind it to give you the inside skinny on what happened and how we picked it up!
So come with us, on a journey through the many cases here at GRI.
On to the top ten! Number 10: Clarkesville Cemetery in El Dorado Hills, California
I investigated this site alone in November of 2008 and it was a beautiful little cemetery. The fence was flat on the ground when I arrived and I stepped over it and entered. It turns out a rather humorous spirit pronounced sentence on me for going in there! For that, I commend this man and thank him for watching over the souls of Clarkesville Cemetery.
Number 9: Miners Club Bar – Georgetown, California
This investigation in an old morgue from the Civil war days (and we still don’t understand the civil war connection here in California) netted a “Burn Yankees” statement. We think it’s a rebel or rebel supporter who probably didn’t like my fighter pilot jacket and considered me a Yankee. More power to him – We love these kind of EVPs!
Number 8: Spencer Civil War Rifle Reading
This investigation focused on a rare Spencer Civil war rifle that I was asked to investigate. I decided on an EVP session and managed to record the word “Averett”. It turns out “Averett” is the German root of the name “Everett” and is a common name in the Southern states. We think that this was the name of one of the owners of this rifle. There are three marks on the rifle, indicating potential kills made by the rifle. All in all, a unique EVP and it rates as number eight for 2008!
Number 7: Bayley House in Pilot Hill, California
A woman pleads for help from our pre-investigation team in December of 2008. This was truly a tragic EVP, yet a clear catch and we are looking into the history and background of the site to see if we can learn more about who this lady is. Truly a great EVP and we’re going to see how we can help her.
Number 6: Wolfe Manor (Clovis Sanitarium) Clovis, California
Late November of 2008 saw me investigate the Clovis Sanitarium with members of TAPs and GHI. There were around 30 to 40 investigators and after people began to leave, I headed up to the second story and into Mary’s room. I ended up getting a very clear EVP yelling at me to get out. There is no doubt that Wolfe Manor is absolutely haunted! And I’m going back in 2009!
Number 5: Fair Play Cemetery, Fair Play, California
This spirit responded to my happy question with “Like Me” – This was during a rain storm and the site had a number of unique EVPs recorded in only 8 minutes of work. We fully intend to return in 2009 to more formally investigate the site.
Number 4: Georgetown Hotel, Georgetown, California
This guy whispered into our recorder right there at the bar. It was a daytime investigation with two investigators doing pre-investigation visits to check the area out.? We got a number of hits here at the bar and were told of some events seen by the staff in the past. A very good EVP!
Number 3: U.S.S. Hornet, Alameda, California
This long EVP is a full-on encounter by two investigators in sick-bay over the course of about eight to ten minutes. At the end, a “Hello” is captured by my recorder, which was running on the bunk I had taken. Truly an amazing encounter and in the top three for 2008!
Number 2: St. George Hotel, Volcano, California
This EVP was recorded on the second floor, left side of the St. George Hotel. We recorded this, while feeling totally unwelcome in this room that had a little side-sitting room that gave us the willies just being in there. Now we know why! This is the number two EVP for 2008 and for good reason!
Number 1: Shingle Springs Cemetery, Shingle Springs, California
William Madison Palmer, a distinguished rancher and pioneer who settled this area, responded to me in October of 2008 while I investigated the cemetery. Because of this high-quality EVP, I pressed on and I’ve also made what I feel, to be a real friend over there at this little pioneer cemetery. He’s my buddy, hero and an all around great guy. You can learn more about his life by looking for his name on Google and you’ll learn more about him!
Congratulations WIlliam! And thanks for helping me and being a great frriend. I’ve caught other EVPs from William since then and he’s truly one of the good spirits out there!
Second half of Truckee Hotel case investigation from 05/25/2012.
Case of 05/25/12 – Part 1 – Summary video of our investigation and the events that occurred during our time at the hotel. Note that these events occurred during the complete renovation of the hotel going on in May and June of 2012.
GRI is back investigating and we’re looking to reassemble a team and get out and do some case work in the field.
If you feel you would like to join a team for an investigation, let us know and we’ll get a site selected and do some test missions to test your mettle.
If you need us to investigate a site, please contact us at the Facebook link on the right side of the screen and we will be in touch! — Jon
Our old site at http://historical.ghostriderinvestigations.com is back online as of August and we will be using it for reference for old cases and evidence.
The Paranormal is nothing to be trifled with and it is best to walk carefully into it. We used to do multiple investigations a month and I no longer think that is a wise thing. An investigation takes a lot out of investigators and it is something that has to be planned out and the people who do the work need to be prepared and ready for anything.
I know one thing, I’ve had some really good experiences and more than my share of bad ones in this business, so the goal is to keep it light and have fun while doing something helpful for the Other Side. It is going to be something I will feel my way through.
Note – We did do something of a recent investigation with a trip into Nevada to examine an ancient site that had me experience a face to face encounter with an apparition for all of 1 or 2 seconds. What I saw was like half a person, split down the middle and it appeared to be an American Indian. I was NOT expecting to see such a thing as we were not investigating in the paranormal sense, but it really got my attention and I want to return to the site to do a night-time investigation with the full suite of gear to see what we capture.
