I believe that if you go in someone's home on a investigation, i believe that spirits could follow you in that never were there to begin with and taint a investigation...Just curious if others have thought this? We have gotten names before on evps's but it still hard enough trying to figure out who that was...my opinion. They could of traveled from far away never being able to prove one way or the other who the name belonged to or its origin? So its just something i have thought of.... my home is a little over 2 years old and unless the land is riddled with spirits...i believe they come from everywhere. My wife had a armenian boy come in one night unless he lived in the area of connecticut i live in years ago i don't know. So to always say this place is haunted to me dosen't mean the spirit won't leave with the person or persons leaving when the investigation is done.

Whether spirits have the ability to follow people to different locations would be very difficult to prove. Even if that was possible, I wouldn't consider the evidence found as "tainted" since it would still be evidence of activity and there's no way to discern if that certain spirit "belonged" to that location or not. Maybe spiritual attachment is not as easy for spirits to do as we think.
For example, I collect a number of antiques that includes dolls, bears, and some furniture. I've been collecting these items on and off (when I can afford it ) for about the past 15 yrs. I can honestly say that none of these items are haunted. Most that I own are from the early 1900's and a couple are from the mid-late 1800's. I would think that the odds are high that I would have at least one spirit inhabiting my house through spirit attachment from at least one of the many antiques I own, but I don't. Under this same idea, antique shops all over the world should be overrun with paranormal activity but yet we don't hear about this.
So I wonder if spiritual attachment (either to people or objects) where they have move to different locations isn't a strong enough ability for them to do? Maybe that's why paranormal investigators don't have an influx of spirits following them home. They may just stay "grounded".
Well you do hear of people who say that dead relatives are looking out for them (if the relative makes themself known that is) even though the relative didnt live or die near the person concerned - isnt that a type of attachment?

When I think of tainted investigations I think more about noise contamination, and uninvited guests. I have been on an investigation where the client tainted the investigation by letting in a bunch of people right in the middle of our investigation to see what was going on. Pretty soon we had people wandering hallways, up and down staircases, and into rooms. None of us could keep track of them and we had to throw out all evidence up to that point. That sucked!
