The investigation setup: LIPI conducted a “lights out” investigation on a June evening. Due to the extremely small size of the apartment equipment use was limited. The Tech Department set up 3 DVR cameras around the apartment. One was located in the kitchen where beverages that could be spilled were stored, while one other was in the living room where one of the statues was located, and the third was located in the bedroom. Other equipment used included digital cameras, TriField EMF meters, digital audio recorders, and temperature reading devices.

LIPI members were divided into 3 teams for the investigation. One team investigated at a time while the other two teams waited for their turn in a different part of the complex so as to not overcrowd the site. The investigation lasted for approximately three hours. The resident and her friend remained in the apartment with the investigating team during the investigation.
