A possible Cause for the Sallie House Haunting
Ever since 2008 when I first started investigating the Sallie House, one place that has always intrigued me and other paranormal investigators is the master bedroom closet. There have been many times were I have stepped into the closet and I have been immediately encountered with vertigo, or strange feelings of static charges. Some psychics have described the closet as being a “portal”, or a “vortex of energy”. In 2011 by accident Scott D. a livescifi.tv investigator discovered a bloody sweater located in the attic slightly above the area of the master closet. The bloody sweater had stains in the stomach regions and in the elbows. Due to the fact that we found the sweater we thought it would be a good idea to test not only the sweater but the master bedroom closet for the presence of blood. Could the bloody sweater be the cause for the Sallie House haunting?
Luminol in Paranormal Investigation
Luminol (C8H7N3O2) is a chemical that exhibits chemiluminescence, with a blue glow, when mixed with an appropriate oxidizing agent. Luminol is a white-to-pale-yellow crystalline solid that is soluble in most polar organic solvents, but insoluble in water.
Forensic investigators use luminol to detect trace amounts of blood at crime scenes, as it reacts with the iron in haemoglobin. Biologists use it in cellular assays to detect copper, iron, and cyanides, as well as specific proteins by western blot.
When luminol is sprayed evenly across an area, trace amounts of an activating oxidant make the luminol emit a blue glow that can be seen in a darkened room. The glow only lasts about 30 seconds, but investigators can document the effect with a long-exposure photograph. Crime scene investigators must apply it evenly to avoid misleading results, as blood traces appear more concentrated in areas that receive more spray. The intensity of the glow does not indicate the amount of blood or other activator present, but only shows the distribution of trace amounts of in the area.
