Potters field is a place where people are buried when they die and have no friends and family members to claim them, or the family is to poor to afford a grave in a graveyard, so this is where they will rest in peace. Some of the graves in potters field may have names on them due to the fact that after they died they were then claimed years later. The people resting in Suffolk County Potters Field are from the Suffolk County Home Poor House, and the Suffolk County Asylum. As with any graveyard you here stories of unusual activity there. Some people may say that all graveyards are haunted because it’s the final resting place of the dead.
Observed Activity: Investigations here have collected several bright light non-orb photographs. Some Class C EVPs have also been collected here. Members have observed odd lights – either bright white or red – in the woods around the cemetery that cannot be explained by passing cars. Often voices are heard in the woods but it is clearly not kids hanging out in the area. Investigations continue.
Three unusually bright objects appear in these photographs taken at Suffolk County Potters Field. Although it was a humid night the brightness and density of these objects is unlike the orbs in the rest of the picture.

- Date: June 2006
Description: While investigating the cemetery field LIPI kept seeing a white/blue balls of light (orbs?) “floating” approx. 6-7 feet above the ground just inside the tree line on the East side of the field. The lights were moving away from the road. Also heard voices but did not see anyone or any other vehicles in the area. Some LIPI investigators went into the woods and saw a small (4-5 foot tall) brown object run away from them. They are certain it was not a deer.
Update: December 2006 – After discussing these observations with other paranormal investigators LIPI has concluded there is a high likelihood the lights were probably glowing balls of naturally produced gases. This is a rare but natural non-paranormal phenomena, also known as “Willow the Wisp” also known as “Will ‘o the Wisp”
