Historical background: The colonial style home dates back to 1915. The block that it is located on is considered an older block with homes dating back to the 1800s. The homeowners informed LIPI that the family who used to own the house lost a son to leukemia while they lived there. The boy is believed to have been between the ages of nine and eleven years old.

She also claimed feelings of uneasiness. At the time of the investigation, the wife wouldn’t sleep in the bedroom anymore.

The Garage: The property has a detached garage. One day while the husband and wife were talking they witnessed a boy walking over to the garage. The husband went out to go see what the child was doing. When he got to the garage there was no one else around.
The investigation team: Long Island Paranormal Investigator members who attended the investigation were Lead Investigators Mike Cardinuto and Rob Levine, Investigator Paul Guarino, and LIPI Official Guest Amanda DeCarlo.
The investigation setup: Long Island Paranormal Investigators performed a “lights out” investigation of the residence. Mike Cardinuto and Paul Gaurino handled the set up of four DVR cameras around the house. Rob Levine and Amanda DeCarlo conducted the in-home interview and answered questions of the residents.
A variety of equipment was used during the investigation. These included digital cameras, EMF meters, digital voice recorders, andGeiger counters. Each member worked a different section of the location for approximately 45 minutes to an hour, and then would switch.

Audio: A possible “EVP” was recorded by Amanda DeCarlo. This is still being analyzed.
Photographs and Video: No photographs showed any anomalies.
EMF: Readings in the home were consistent and in normal ranges. Despite being an old house the wiring appeared to be in good condition.
Temperature: Nothing unusual was recorded at the location.
Conclusion: Other than a possible EVP no paranormal evidence was collected on this investigation. At the request of the home owner, LIPI empathic specialist Peter Ferraro performed a general house cleansing. The home owner feels much better about the house after the cleansing. Long Island Paranormal Investigators will remain in contact with the residence and will return for further investigation if necessary.
