Established in 1862 the Five Corners Cemetery (aka Lake Ronkonkoma Cemetery) is known to have many burials for war veterans. This
particular cemetery has no stories behind it as far as anything paranormal.
The story could be that this place might have some spirits of veterans that
might haunt the place or just visit this cemetery.
Activity Observed: One LIPI member investigated the
area on his own and
got some interesting things. We received a photograph of an apparition
which seems to appear as a soldier in the picture. Other members have reported
hearing voices during investigations, often of children, when none are
around. And battery operated equipment has failed in certain sections of the
cemetery but appear to be functioning normally in others a few minutes
later. Individual members on their own have reported photographing lights
that give the appearance of an apparition (photos to be posted here soon).
Further investigations are planned.
The above picture is the one of the most striking photos LIPI members have taken.
Some say they see a man standing at attention possibly raising his
left arm (facing the camera) in a salute.
Others say they see a man standing and holding something in his left hand out
in front of him (a sword?).
Still others they see the entire image as the face and neck of a woman with
