Of all of our cases to date, I have to start this off by saying this has been the series that has most impacted me. And what we put into the three episodes is only the tip of the iceberg. There were hours of unused audio from this case and I hoping to share segments of this on my Patreon page in the future.

We'd begun this case on December 1st and it spanned several months where my team and I each worked hard to contribute to this investigation in unique ways. Franklyn helped us draw a clear line between the explainable and unexplainable claims on this case. Sara does what she does best, validates the unseen with her unqique gift. And Alexis really pulled through on this case with helping behind the scenes. So I'd like to share some photos of a very special moment we didn't get to showcase on the final episode itself, but her her Paola and me allude to.

Paola had mentioned she used sage to cleanse the café often. Alexis took time to teach Paola a palo santo cleansing ceremony that would benefit her, her place of business, and the spirits residing there more so than the sage cleansings.

Here Paola lights the Palo Santo and let's it burn for a couple minutes.

Alexis then had her whip the flame out as opposed to blowing it.
