Flushing out phantoms

Wyndham Leader 9 June, 2009, pp 7
By Kelly Cameron.

Drew SintonA GROUP of ghost busters backed by more than 50 fascinated residents was at the weekend investigating reports of paranormal activity at historic Point Cook Homestead.

Melbourne Paranormal Investigations spent the early hours of Sunday morning at the 151-year-old property in search of spooks, focusing mainly on its stables.

Its findings will be available online this week at thewyndham leader.com.au

The group, which has done investigations in Victoria and Britain, sought permission for the vigil after the Leader published a spooky-looking photo said to be taken at the bluestone homestead.

More than 50 people paid to attend a Haunt the Homestead Evening on Saturday, including a candlelit tour of the site and presentation.

MPI member Jan Evans, of Point Cook, said the group would use night-vision video cameras, infrared motion detectors and laser guided thermometers, and focus on stables at the site.

"We'll be setting up some night-vision cameras in the house and cafe areas, but in particular the stables as that is where a lot of activity and movement has been experienced in the past by staff and visitors," Ms Evans said. Homestead manager Emma Sutcliffe has said she had never seen a ghost in her three years living at the property.

The photo that led to the investigation was sent to Mrs Sutcliffe by a woman who says her son, 12, took it during a visit to the homestead last November.

The woman said her son took about 12 photos, downloaded in February, and was convinced one showed a ghost. It was posted on the homestead's website.

Owner of The Haunted Bookshop in Melbourne, Drew Sinton, has said: "To a believer no proof is necessary and to a skeptic no proof is possible."
