Destination Truth Spirits Of Angkor Wat/Canadian Lake Monster S04E02
Well that didn’t take long, we hit the second episode and Josh is already driving a car with the wheels ready to fall off. He even has bad luck with Jeeps. That’s saying something!
Josh and team head to Cambodia to investigate the spirits that seem to inhabit the ruins of Angkor Wat. People report screams, see lights and lots of other experiences in the temple. One person even claims to have been attacked by a spirit. After talking with several eyewitnesses Josh and team do the first overnight paranormal investigation.
To start the investigation off right, Josh heads out for a spa treatment and dips his feet into a pool of pedicure loving fish. They were slightly sidetracked while on their shopping spree looking for fruit offerings for the spirits.
They also need to get incense and candles from two different shrines. It’s basically a motorcycle trek around Cambodia as they find the appropriate offerings. But with the right pieces in hand they set out for the night.
As Josh leads his team out, they’re confronted with a choice – the door on the left, the one in the center, or the one on the right. Did we all guess this was a choose your own adventure beginning?
The investigation starts off with Dan and Bobby doing an EVP session in the ceremonial pool. As they’re talking you can clearly hear a wailing sound. Now my first thought is that it’s animal; some sort of large cat. There is a chance it could be the wind too. Certainly seems like it could go whipping around and generate that sorts of sound. Either way, they’re outside, so it could be any manner of noise that’s just being amplified by the acoustics.
One thing that’s interesting is what looks like a figure walking near the columns. It certainly looks like a figure, but again, how can you be sure it’s not a reflection. It’s hard to say what that really is, but there looks to be something walking around out there.
Josh also sees some lights flickering in the area. You can’t really tell what those are since they don’t actually show up on the camera. He could be seeing the eyes of an animal or the reflection of some bugs. Josh is certainly excited about it, whatever it is, so once again, it seems like something is hovering out there.
Josh and team did manage to capture two EVPs, but like so many others it seems there’s something there but who knows what it is. When asked if someone is there they get a "Keep Off" as the reply. And when asked if they should leave, they get a "Yes". Is someone speaking from the other side? Maybe, but they need to speak up a little.
A really interesting place, but it seems like animals are the explanation behind most events. There is some howling, but considering the outdoor environment, plenty of natural explanations exist.
Everyone seems to have a lake monster and Canada is no exception. For them, they have the Ogo Pogo which seems to be a Loch Ness style creature that inhabits the lake. Josh and team head out in search of an explanation.
And even in Canada they run into car trouble. At first glance the car seems respectable and reliable. But that’s on flat ground. When it comes to the hills things get a little rougher. Their little mule just can’t take any more and after making an abundance of clunking sounds it finally overheats. Josh and team resort to showing a little leg while trying to hitch a ride. It was the I love Canada hat that proves they’re not a threat.
After being rescued by some passers-by, they meet up with local residents who tell of their own encounters with the creature. It seems to appear off Rattlesnake Island (such a cool name) so Josh and team go up in a plane to scope out the area. Canada has better planes than cars so there’s no incident, but they do manage to see some splashing around in the water. They team flies into action to try and locate the source by landing near the island. Wasting no time, Josh puts on the wetsuit and dives right in. As you might expect he finds a creepy cave and heads right in. As you also might expect he sees a large shadow while in the murky water and the team send in a robotic drone to try and find it.
Alas they don’t find the source of the shadow so who knows what it was. Considering the murky water it could have been any manner of debris.
The team makes camp and then heads out into the water with sonar to pick up the trail. They get a reading that something is underneath the boat, but once again nothing seems to come of it. The object doesn’t move and keeps pace with them. They toss out the evidence and move on.
While scanning the water they do see big ripples in the water and give chase. Unfortunately, once again it turns out to be nothing.
There is an incident with the ROV being pulled, but it may have gotten tangled in something or been nibbled on by a fish. It wasn’t a sea creature, I’m pretty sure of that.
In the end they capture very little evidence. They have some close calls, but don’t come away with anything that really supports the claim of a large sea beast lurking in Canada. There’s something in the water but they could be seeing schools of fish or some other perfectly reasonable, albeit large, fish.
For now, Ogo Pogo is still a mystery and remains as elusive as Josh getting a decent rental car.
