October 2009, the Long Island Paranormal Investigators received a request to
investigate a family residence in Sayville, NY.
The residence in Sayville, NY.
The house consists of three levels plus attic, and a separate car
garage. Inside the home reside seven people of varying ages. All of the
residents appear to be your everyday typically normal family. The
majority of the activity seems to be centered on the mother/ home owner
of the house and one of her daughters. Her two daughters are sixteen and
ten years old.
The family living in the house stated the building was built back in the 1800’s.
They have lived at the site for seven months and the activity began since they
moved in. The family felt that it coincided with the tragic death of a 19 year
old boy who lived there before them. The Uncle of the boy, who lives next door,
had claimed that the boy died in a car accident and was a “troubled teen”
Reported paranormal activity:
There have been many possible paranormal accounts reported by the
residents of which here listed are some of the claims. The girls
reported one day while the mother came home from work seeing a boy
sitting in the front seat of her car when she pulled up. When she walked
in the front door, her daughters asked why she had brought one of her
students home from work. Startled, the mother said she did no such thing
and that nobody was in the car with her when she pulled up. When they
girls looked back out to the truck, the boy was gone. When describing
what he looked like, the description matched the boy who was killed in
the car accident.
The detached garage.
The home owner has also claimed that she had been touched while bending
over to get something out of the oven. Thinking it was one of her
daughters trying to get her attention, she turned around and no one was
there. She has also experienced footsteps walking through her dining
room, kitchen, and right out of the back door. She also reports that the
clocks in the house always get reset which makes everyone late for
school/work etc. Another claim was that lights get turned on and off,
stereo and AC gets turned on in the girls room.
One of the daughters also has had some activity around them. Every night
she would put her medication on the nightstand next to her bed and every
morning it would be moved in the same spot under the nightstand. One day
the mother had her medication in the locked trunk of her car. When she
went to go retrieve it, the bottle was gone and never to be found after.
The resident that lives in the attached apartment has also seen shadows
moving through the house as well. He also recalled the clocks in his
place to be thrown off as well.
The investigation team: Long Island Paranormal Investigator members who attended the investigation were lead investigators Michael Cardinuto and Rob Levine, investigators Carolyn Braband, Christina Frank, and Caren Bendror.
The living room where it is reported objects have
been seem to move on their own.
The investigation setup:
The investigation was scheduled to run from 9pm through 1am the following
morning. Two investigation teams were organized. One team was led by
Michael Cardinuto and the other was supervised by Carolyn Braband.
teams alternated between investigation the residence and observing the
DVR monitor which was set up in the kitchen. The teams investigated
upstairs bedrooms on the third floor, downstairs den and dining room, the
basement, the attached apartment, and the grounds outside of the home.
The DVR system was set up in the dining room, two rooms upstairs, and the
basement. There were also thermometers spread around the residence as

Team 1 was led by Carolyn Braband. They were the first team to
investigate the residence. Team 2, led by Michael Cardinuto stayed at
base and monitored the DVR system for the first half of the investigation
but then later spread out around the outside of the house to investigate
as well. While actively investigating, the teams would begin on the
third floor and work their way down to the first floor.

Audio: Nothing conclusively paranormal was collected.
Photographs and Video: Nothing paranormal was collected from cameras and video used during the investigation.
EMF: There were some high EMF spikes throughout the house. However, they
were traced back to non-paranormal sources such as wiring, and an electrical box.
Temperature: Temperature readings inside the residence were viewed as normal readings.
Personal Experiences: A few investigators thought they heard footsteps and
a door close at one point of the investigation. One of the investigators thought she felt a tug on her earring as well. There were also uneasy
feelings being felt by two of the investigators. However, nothing was able to be substantiated through analysis.
Island Paranormal Investigators was unable to confirm or debunk the presence of
paranormal activity in the home. LIPI will remain in
contact with the residence and will return for further investigation if
