Recent Investigations by Long Island Paranormal Investigators:

Hanging Tree

The legend of Hanging Tree (also called The Hanging Tree) states that in colonial times people accused of witchcraft were hung from this tree. LIPI has not been able to find any historical record to confirm this legend. However, in more modern times at least 2 young people have died by hanging from the tree (whether by murder, suicide or accident it is not clear). An additional theory that has recently been put forth is that activity here is not paranormal in the traditional ghost sense. Rather, the area is inhabited/protected by what Native Americans called "Spirits Of The Forest" that are simply trying to scare people to leave the area. If this is so, why this particular area of land is of interest to the spirits isn't clear.

Observed Activity: Numerous EVPs have been recorded here. Also several unexplained lights and shadows have been seen in this area. During at least one investigation a "lady in white" was spotted when no one else (non-LIPI members) was around. Empaths often get a strong feeling of foreboding. Physical contact has been reported here as equipment has been knocked out of investigator's hands while being used.

EVP 2 (78kb)


Date: December 2005
Description: Another  EVP recording from the same investigation that also contains a voice saying "Peter".

EVP 3 (161kb)


Date: December 2005
Description: This EVP was recording at the tree. LIPI members Tim Hall and Moshin ("Mo") Marghoob thought they had seen a shadow run past us (behind us) the path leading parallel to the water while we were at the tree. In this recording you can first hear Tim speak, then LIPI Lead Investigator Michael Cardinuto say "But there is no people" and immediately as he says it you hear a voice say "I" or "Hi".

EVP 4 (146kb)


Date: December 2005
Description: This EVP was also recording at the tree very shortly after EVP #3 was recorded. LIPI members Tim Hall and Moshin ("Mo") Marghoob thought they had seen a shadow run past us (behind us) the path leading parallel to the water while we were at the tree. In this recording you can first hear Mo speak, then LIPI Lead Investigator Michael Cardinuto exclaim a profanity at this frustration over improper use of equipment. As Mike begins to speak you hear a voice say "Slice" or "Silence". This appears to to the same voice that says "I" or "Hi" in EVP #3!
