The Daily Lobo - University of New Mexico, 6 Nov 2013 [cached]
UNM student Jessica Irwin spent much of her Sunday evening pacing through the dark Church Street Café in Old Town in search of paranormal activity and a ghost named Sarah.
Irwin, a psychology major applying for medical school, is a member of the Southwest Ghost Hunter's Association, a group of about 30 people who search for and investigate haunted areas throughout the Southwest.
Irwin said seeing apparitions or ghosts is rare. She said the group uses infrared film and camera flashes in an attempt to catch images that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Irwin scanned through pictures on her digital camera that she took in the backyard and inside of the café. Some of the photos had spots on them, which appeared to be dust spots that moved location from picture to picture. Irwin said she thought the spots were orbs.
She said the theory of orbs rests on the theory that energy cannot be destroyed and must instead change form.
Orbs might be leftover energy from people who have died, she said, adding that recent research indicates that certain frequencies can interact with brainwaves causing hallucinations that may explain ghostly experiences.
Irwin said she thought she saw an orb on Halloween night during a ghost hunt.
A Daily Lobo reporter and photographer, as well as Irwin and another ghost hunter, heard four knocks in the first room of the house followed by another four knocks.
No one other than the witnesses could be found in or around the room where the knocks came from.
Irwin said she thought that energy from an orb may have caused auditory hallucinations among the witnesses. She said the group's infrared camera, which was recording audio, did not pick up the sound of the knocking.
That evening, a member of the association called from a dark bathroom, saying he received an extremely high reading on his electromagnetic detector.
Irwin said the association does not use psychics for its research.
"You have to prove the psychic before you can prove the ghost," she said. "The organization tries to keep it as skeptical as possible."
She concluded Tuesday evening that she thinks the Church Street Café is haunted.
"The knocking really intrigued me," she said.

Cody Polston, Southwest Ghost Hunters Association president, and investigator Jessica Irwin, like most other professional scientists, were armed with proper ghost-hunting equipment: infrared thermometers, electromagnetic field detectors and nightscopes.
It was just me and [coordinator] Jessica there. It wasn't her voice.
