All evidence contained on the PIRC website is considered property of PIRC (unless noted) and may not be used without expressed written consent.
These clips were obtained on our July 2013 visit to Eastern State Penitentiary.
All clips are the original unaltered clips unless noted. Any Evp that is enhanced will have a note. The only reason we enhance a file is to make it easier to listen to without a headset. No other manipulations have been performed.
PIRC makes no claims that the evidence provided is paranormal. Every effort is made to debunk the evp and if we are in doubt it is not used. We have found no explanation for the evps we present but are open to others interpretation or comments.
We had many rain storms that night. As a result there are drips and constant downpour/rain sounds. Many of these clips have noise reduction performed to remove these sounds. Any clip that is modified is identified as such and the original is also presented for your comparison.
Please be aware we had to remove our current audio player, as a result evps do not show a player but show a link which you can click on. The file will open and play. To return to this page please hit the back button.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we are working on building back access to this audio evidence.
Using headphones will aid in listening to these files.
The question was asked “Is there anyone else here besides “Elmo”. Elmo was a convict on death row – there was a poster up about him which prompted the question – enhanced audio click here
In this clip you can hear a voice say ‘hey’ and immediately Drew reacts to it. The voice is around 2.5 seconds in.
This is another version of the Elmo clip from a different location and angle. Enhanced version here
The “Hole” Solitary
Two whispers here the last sounds like he’s saying ‘hard’. (enhanced)
The whisper sounds like it says xxx ‘in the morgue’. This is one of two ‘morgue’ evps captured that night. Enhanced
There are 2 evps in this clip. The first occurs right away before the click of the full spectrum and a female says ‘I love you too’ and the second is male and says ‘hello’. I’ve provided a version where the ‘I love you’ is slowed down.
Sounds like it could be ‘get out’ at end.
Here there are 2 different voices. One sounds like it’s saying ‘it’s not fair’ and the other is saying ‘hard’. Click.
During their session – all hear a growl and each are polled as to whether it was there stomach and all say it’s not. The growl occurs in the very beginning. Click
This is the second clip in which the morgue is spoken. There is a word and then it sounds like he says ‘we’re in the morgue’.
Cell Block 2
Sounds like “there” is being said.
There is a loud bang like something was knocked over that was not heard at the time since you can hear us at the hum and no one reacts to it. Click
Cell Block 3 – Operating Room
This evp was captured in the operating room. Present are Barbara, Kim and Kelly. All other Pirc members were out at death row and the hole. It’s interesting to note that we think it’s saying one of our investigators names, twice. Click
In this clip you can hear us setting up when you hear someone say ‘you hoo’. We caught this on 2 different recorders in 2 different cells.
In this clip you hear a man say ‘no’ then something drops toward the end.
This is one of my favorite clips in this cell block. You can hear a group of us walking and in a very plain, unemotional voice a woman says ‘run, run’. No one reacts. We confirmed it was none of us. This was so clear no enhancement was needed.
Kim, Kelly and I were investigating in the operating room. In this clip you hear someone go ‘ahhhhh’ as we’re speaking.
Cell Block 7
Kim and I were sitting in cell block 7 by ourselves. We were hearing all sorts of movement up on the cat walks. This one was a little close to home. Click
While sitting there Kim felt something touch her and as she’s telling me the Mel’s rem pod goes off.
This occurred when no one was in cell block 7. It sounds like a metallic door or a possible yell. We heard this on another recorder as well.
Cell Block 8
This evp sounds like a cough. There is no one in this cell block at this time.
This sounds like a door either opening or closing somewhere. A plane can be heard in the background.
This clip sounds like someone moving something like a chair and then there is snapping. We found over 20 clips of movement similar to this one. Perhaps this movement is residual in the prison since there is no one in the cell block at this time.
In this clip you can hear us in the distance talking at base and out of context you hear someone say ‘dam it’. We confirmed this was none of us.
Cell Block 9
You can hear the team talking during set up and about 3.5 seconds in you hear a ‘yes’ and then a long drawn out ‘yessssssssss’. Perhaps they were responding to something the team was saying.
This is the second clip of ‘You hoo’ we found, the first in cell block 3. This one is very loud and clear. Cell block 3 is far from cell block 9 and the voice if much louder here it seems obvious that this is where this spirit was located.
Cell Block 12
While upstairs in cell block 12 we heard a noise on the cart right next to us. This is the exchange.
This is a very strange whisper. We can’t make out what is being said but the enhanced version is very interesting.
