This long EVP (approx. 3 min.) has two distinct phases. In the first, there is a series of loud thumpings or grunts, which the investigators believe are a depicting an instance of sexual abuse. This section lasts until approximately 1 min 30 sec. In the second phase, a girl's or child's voice can be heard begging to her father.
In case you have trouble hearing the girl's voice on your computer speakers, here are the time codes where the girl's voice can be heard and what the investigators and/or the Roff Home owner hear the girl saying:
1.32: "Daddy, don't you love me?" or "Daddy, daddy, daddy"
1.51: "Daddy, get off of me."
2.16: "You can't do that to me."
2.21-22: "Help me!"
2.40-2.54: "No, no, please, daddy. No, don't daddy. No."
3.04: "Please, daddy."
