How to Modulate down a hidden message after filtering base signal from audio file

I have an audio file that is 6 seconds long. The file has a message hidden into it in the ultra high frequency range. I plot the Mel Spectrogram with a sample rate of 44100 and use a high-pass filter to filter the base signal, here is the mel spectrogram I've plotted before filtering and after filtering  To filter, I've used the following code:

import librosa
from scipy import signal

b = signal.firwin(101, cutoff=12000, fs=sr, pass_zero=False)
x = signal.lfilter(b, [1.0], x)

Here is a waveform plot of the filtered singnal: My question is, after filtering, how do I bring the message down from the ultra high frequency range down to an audible range?! I know I am supposed to use amplitude demodulation, but don't quite have an idea how!!

Multiply the filtered signal of the modulated signal alone by alternating an alternating sequence of +1 -1 at the sampling rate. This will invert the spectrum such as to move the modulated and spectrally symmetric waveform to a lower frequency (call it carrier-x, which given carrier at $$f_1$$ with Nyquist frequency $$f_s/2$$, carrier-x will be at $$f_s/2-f_1$$) where we can simply square the waveform (if DSB-SC) to determine the carrier frequency (meaning multiply the waveform with itself, as in $$x^2$$). This will produce a strong frequency at twice the carrier frequency with the modulation stripped. For post processed demodulation, play this extracted carrier at half the rate by inserting zeros between each sample (this will stretch out the recovered carrier to half rate, and produce additional carriers at harmonics, but I believe the subsequent filtering should reject those components so as to not require additional interpolation filtering), and then multiply this directly with the modulated signal at carrier-x. Low pass filter this result (given the plot the OP provided, a low pass filter at 1 KHz appears sufficient, but it should be less than $$f_s/2-f_1$$, and the intention is to block the doubled result that would appear at $$2(f_s/2-f_1)$$.
