So sad to hear that they have ignored your advice. Having experieince the gut wrenching fear of certain spirit manifiestations. (the demonic ones, not the wayward souls) I can only say that I will pray for that family as a whole. The fear that prevents the parents from acting is a result of the same manipulation that the spirit is putting on the child and puts them all equally in danger spiritually if not corporally.
Woody, although I do not condone your religious views as a whole, I have known a few good Wiccans who have helped me personnaly both spiritually and corporally. As a person who has been sensitive to the spirit world since my early childhood I understand the fear that can be associated to these encounters and have simply chosen a different path in dealing with them. Many within my religous community would chastize me for sharing these views or even being in part of this discussion.
With that said I do respect your obvious abilities and your heartfelt devotion to helping these people and I pray that God may protect this family from harm.
A special prayer is reserved for you and your team that God may protect you in all your dealings with the spirit world.

Why didn't this Sadie character send you the images? I don't get it, it's the thing that bothers me most about this.
Many elements of this case don't make sense, but the photo's thing bothers me, it's not a case of "pictures or it didn't happen", personally, I don't frequent this site looking for proof or evidence of anything, just like to read the interesting threads and make up my own mind as to whether or not I believe them.
I do, however, exepct photos when they're hinted at or promised by the poster. The reason it bothers me is if this Sadie saw something in one of her images that frightened her then surely she would have wanted you - someone she believes to be some kind of authority on these issues - to see the photos and possibly identify any abnormalities or entities...but instead she phoned you all hysterical and you sent your son over to keep her company.
While your son made his way over to her house, did you try to convince her of the importance of sending the photos to you? Surely they'd have been some help in your investigation or you'd never have asked her to take them in the first place?
I agree it's possible her husband may have stopped her sending the photos, but she'd plenty of time to send them before the husband got home that night, surely it would have been in her best interests to show you these images as soon as possible in the hopes that it'd help you and your team resolve the issues? If what she saw in the images scared her to the point she'd allow the son of a mild acquaintance into her home then she isn't going to dismiss it and get on with her life and pretend it didn't happen - nor do ?I believe would her husband, who it seems is perhaps more educated in these matters.
It may look like I've sort of contradicted myself here, saying I believe it's possible the husband stopped Sadie sending the images...then stating he seems more educated in these issues, thus, he'd know better than to block any further communication between you and his wife...you see I, personally, think he thinks you guys were making the situation worse.
I also find it odd that you stated this Sadie was skeptical/uninterested about such things before these incidents began to happen in her home, quite a sidden change of character to contact what you claim is not a well known paranormal investigation group...do you know how she heard about ...ehm...W.I.S.P.S? If you guys don't advertise your services and aren't well known then it's reasonable to question how a so-called skeptic even heard of you let alone decided to put faith in you and allow you guys into her home.
It's difficult to make my point without coming across as arrogant or even ignorant, you seem like a knowledgeable person and quite responsive in your threads, which are eloquent, well structured and informative.
I also think the name woodwytch might put a lot of people off - no offense, perhaps the husband holds you somewhat responsible for the escalation in activity - I'm not saying this is the case, in fact I'd personally expect matters to get worse before they get better in such a situation...but from a laymans point of view it might be reasonable to assume that the person who refers to themself as woodwytch might be doing more harm than good...just a thought.
Lastly, why did this Sadie not appear on the monday with the memory stick with the images? She can't have so much faith in you if she is unwilling to show you these images in the hope that you might be able to solve this problem.
I've read a few of your threads and they're quite interesting, never replied before and only first read this thread today, I know it's quite an old thread so apologies for beating a dead horse, so to speak.
