Did the Marana, Arizona Police Department Capture an EVP?

Strange things are afoot in Marana, Arizona, if we believe the claim that a ghost has joined in on the radio transmissions of the Marana Police Department.

The department posted this update, along with the above YouTube video, to their Facebook page on July 30, 2015:

“Listen for the unusual anomaly that was recorded during this recent MPD radio transmission. Could it be a ghost? What do you hear it say? At the 19 sec mark, some people think it says ‘Stop talking to me.’

Our radio technician listened to it and could offer no explanation. He said it was not interference or picking up another frequency.”

The “voice” can be heard in the video at about 0:19. Some people claim it says “Stop talking to me,” while others think they hear “You’re talking to him” or “Oh God, don’t do it!” or even “Oh God Dewy!”  Unfortunately, it can sound like all of those, and it’s certainly possible this is just a technical artifact.

  1. could be nothing, but evp recordings scare the heck outa me. I do wander though why the police would release this. Kinda seems like something that would go unnoticed assuming that they use their radios often.

    1. Not sure, really. Hopefully they’re not playing games like with that Bigfoot video a while back (I don’t quite remember, but I believe some park rangers or something shared a video that turned out to be a hoax).

  2. It could be nothing, but at the same time it definitely could be something. I agree, it seems like the police probably just didn’t notice it. To me it sounds like more than just artifact, definitely a creepy type whisper but hard to tell exactly what it is saying. Really sounds like the first two words are “Oh God” but even after replaying it, I can’t for sure make out the rest.

  3. i heard it say i didn’t do it i swear to god at 19 second mark then “i swear” “i didn’t” and “not me” at different times
