Prolog: Long Island Paranormal
Investigators was contacted in October 2006 to investigate this residence on
Long Island in Ronkonkoma, NY. LIPI members performed a "lights out" (total
darkness) investigation of the residence using digital
analog audio recorders,
systems, EMF and other electronic sensors.
Follow Up: LIPI returned to this house in
January 2007 to conduct a second investigation. Click
here for details.
Historical Background: The current home owner
states that paranormal activity in the form of strange sounds have been heard on the rear bedroom. A family
member of the prior owners who was stricken with cancer lived in the rear
bedroom and rang a bell when calling for assistance. It is not known if this
person died in that room. The owner also states
that the family dog would sit at one spot in the basement apartment and bark
at the empty air. Further, family members would often feel someone is
watching them on both levels of the house but no one was around. Additionally, when trying to open a
door in the basement apartment often feels like someone is holding it closed
when no one is there. No ghost or
spirit images or other paranormal manifestations
have been reported.
members also reported feelings that someone was watching them. On the
digital video set up in the rear bedroom, the audio detected the sound of
what seems like a bell (the sound file being processed and will be posted as
soon as possible). This is constant with the historical background and
paranormal reports from the home owner. No other potential paranormal or EVP
sounds were recorded either on digital video, digital audio or analog audio.
The door in the basement was checked and felt
"sticky". This could be the source of the difficulty opening it. LIPI feels
this aspect of the investigation has been debunked.
A sharp rise in EMF was detected in the living
room area but was determined to be from a clock behind the couch.
Digital photography captured the following image:
This orb is in the same location in the basement
apartment the owner states the family dog will sit and bark at (the other
orbs in the image have been determined to be dust). LIPI can not confirm or
debunk this orb as being paranormal in nature.
Follow Up Investigation:
At the request of the home owner LIPI returned to this house in January 2007
for a second follow up investigation. We used the same electronic sensors as
during the October 2006 investigation as well as a 4 IR camera DVR system
during a "lights out" night
Lead Investigator Mike Cardinuto sets up one of the DVR IR cameras to
monitor a room
where possible paranormal activity has been reported.
One interesting occurrence happened in the
basement apartment in about the same location as where a bright orb was
photographed during the first investigation. The
Zap Checker and
Electrosensor units both
recorded sporadic readings. However, this spot is in the vicinity of the
home's oil burner unit and could have been detecting the electrical signals
from the unit.
No other potential paranormal activity was
Conclusion: While several interesting
pieces of evidence were collected during both investigations, Long Island
Paranormal Investigators are unable to confirm with certainty the presence
of a haunting or paranormal activity at this residence. LIPI will remain in
contact with this home owner and return to the house if any further
potential activity is noticed.
