During Apex Paranormal’s first walk-through with one of the volunteers who works at the mansion, investigator and research specialist Shannon Johnson says she encountered a spirit in Sophia’s room. Using a spirit box—a commonly used tool for paranormal investigations that scans radio frequencies and is said to transmit messages from the other side—Johnson and the volunteer began asking questions to see if Sophia’s spirit happened to be in the room. Johnson says that they both heard a female voice say yes in response. They went on to ask if her overdose was intentional or accidental, and they heard the same voice respond that it was an accident.
In Sophia’s room, Johnson also recalls a teddy bear moving on its own and the sound of children’s laughter coming through the spirit box.
