THE BEARINGER FIREPROOF BUILDING
           SAGINAW, MICHIGAN
MID MICHIGAN PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS WERE THE FIRST TEAM TO HAVE THE
HONOR OF INVESTIGATING THIS HISTORIC BUILDING. 55,000 SQ FT.  6 FLOORS AND A
BASEMENT. THE BUILDING WAS ABOUT 10-20 PERCENT OCCUPIED, MAINLY ON THE
GROUND FLOOR AND VARIOUS SUITES USED BY ARTISTS AND SOME GREAT LOCAL
BANDS ON THE FLOORS ABOVE.
THE BUILDING WAS BUILT IN 1893 BY ISAAC BEARINGER, A MAN WHO NOT ONLY
BUILT THE FIRST FIRE PROOF BUILDING IN SAGINAW, BUT WHO ALSO BUILT THE
FIRST ELECTRIC TROLLEY STRETCHING FROM BAY CITY TO SAGINAW. ISAAC WAS A
LUMBER MAN AND AN ENTREPRENEUR.

CLAIMS: WHILE THE OWNER OF THE BUILDING WAS SHOWING AN OFFICE SPACE ON
THE FOURTH FLOOR SHE SAW A WOMAN IN A BLACK DRESS WITH A BLACK VEIL
OVER HER FACE COME DOWN THE HALL AND WALKED THROUGH A DOOR DOWN
THE HALL ENTERING A CORNER OFFICE, WHICH WAS VACANT.  THE WOMANS
APPAREL WAS LATE 1800'S EARLY 1900'S.
THE SHADOW MAN REPORTED STANDING IN THE DOORWAY OF A SPACE ON THE
SECOND FLOOR; DESCRIBED AS LARGE BLACK FIGURE, THE FIGURE WHEN SEEN
MOVED RAPIDLY DOWN THE HALL AROUND THE CORNER AND VANISHED AT THAT
POINT ACCORDING TO THE WITNESSES WHO GAVE CHASE.
REPORTS OF AN SEXUAL ASSAULT ON THE BEARINGER BLDG'S ELEVATOR, AND
CORNER OFFICE SUITE WHICH WAS VACANT ON THE 5TH FLOOR.
REPORTS OF DIZZINESS AND THE FEELING OF THE FLOOR MOVING FROM UNDER
YOUR FEET.

WE RESEARCHED THE BUILDING, THROUGH INTERNET SOURCES, ALONG WITH THE
SAGINAW HISTORICAL SOCIETY PRIOR TO OUR INVESTIGATION, WE WERE ABLE TO
CONFIRM THE SEXUAL ASSAULT, WHILE ALSO DISCOVERING THAT A LIL GIRL 8 YRS
OLD HAD PERISHED IN THE BEARINGER BLDG ELEVATOR.  

SOME SOURCES SAY THERE WAS A FIRE ON THE LOBBY FLOOR THAT A MAN WHO
WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED STARTED WHILE COOKING FRENCH FRIES IN GREASE.  
LITTLE GIRL WHO DIED IN THE ELEVATOR MAY HAVE DIED FROM SMOKE INHALATION.
