I've recently received the following from Mike Christol, UFO Investigator and MufoNet-BBS Network SysOp:
The following is the latest information release from John Ford, Chairman of Long Island UFO Network, i.e. LIUFON, regarding the reported crash of an unidentified object in South Haven Park, ajoining North Shirley, Long Island. Just to recap, the object allegedly went down on Nov. 24, 1992 at 7:15 pm. It was witnessed by a gentleman who saw the object fly along side of his car at about 50 ft. above the ground. The object suddenly sped up,and made a right angle turn in front of him, crossing Sunrise Highway and impacting in the park. Now for the update which I received from John on Saturday, Jan. 9, 1993 at 10:30 PM CST.
"The Long Island UFO Network conducted an investigation along the area known as Gerard Rd., in Yaphank (L.I.), NY. This area borders the western side of South Haven Park. The Long Island UFO Network ascertained from several residents in the area:
(1) A female witness whose identity is confidential and known to our board of directors, that informed us that on the night of the UFO crash on November 24, 1992, that she was stopped at the inter- section of Gerard and Victory Bvlds.. While proceeding along in an easterly direction on Victory Blvd, due to the presence of a Suffolk County Police roadblock, was offered the explanation that there had been an accident in the park and the park was closed. She subsequently came back from her shopping trip and attempted to travel north on William Ford Parkway and make a left hand turn onto Victory Blvd., and found that Victory Blvd. was blocked at the intersection of William Ford Parkway. She had to travel North and take the Long Island Expressway over to exit 66 and then come down Gerard Rd. to get back to her house, over 20 minute delay in her course of travel.
(2) LIUFON has ascertained from a teenage witness that on the day after the UFO crash he and a group of friends were denied access to the park by Suffolk County Police, prohibiting them from riding their bicycles in the park due to the presence of a so called accident on the park grounds. No further explanation was offered by the police officers at the gate, the park was closed.
(3) The Long Island UFO Network has ascertained from another 16 yr old witness, living on Gerard Ave., that he knows of two close personal friends he goes to school with, who were traveling west bound on Sunrise Hwy. the night of the incident and saw the object impact in the park! We are now conducting an attempt to contact those two additional witnesses.
(4) LIUFON has ascertained from additional witnesses in the area of Gerard Ave., bizarre electormagnetic pulse effects to wit digital clock readouts losing control as to the exact time and having to be reset constantly two to three days after the incident. VCRs, wiping out video tapes. Power surges in the power lines. There was also a black out for one hour in the area of Gerard Ave. the night of the occurrence. Telephones ringing with nobody at the other end, and also ringing with the receivers off the hook.
(5) On the night of Tuesday, Nov. 29, 1992, the Reverend K.S (address and telephone number given. It can be obtained from me directly at (502) 683-6811). reported at 7:38 PM that evening, his Mercury Marqui, a 1990 Mercury Marqui sadan, burst into flames in his driveway while the car was trying to start itself. Yaphank fire department was called and so was the Suffolk County Police. The Revrend was under the impression that it was arson. The Suffolk County Police and the Yaphank fire Marshall took it down as an electrical fire. We are rather suspicious of this report since it indicates that there may have been latent electormagnetic pulse effect damage to the electronic ignition or car's computer, causing it to short out and also to try and start itself. We've also gotten reports too in that area of frequent helicopter overflights of unmarked helicopters, days after the UFO incident in the park. We are also getting reports in, we have talked to a gentleman tonight, a 17 year old gentleman, by the name of Mike P., of Yaphank, (address and phone number given. I have both), who has agreed to come forward with full public disclosure. At 7:00 PM on the night of Nov. 23, 1992, 24 hours before the UFO incident over South Haven Park, the witness reports a formation of four very bright white lights doing a triangular movement over the park at a high altitude. No visible structure behind the lights, no engine sounds as the objects passed the witness while parked in his car on Gerard Road. Subject will talk to news media, identity not confidential, going for full public disclosure. At 2:15 PM this afternoon (Saturday, Jan 9), the Long Island UFO Investigative team, composed of John Ford, LIUFON members, Brian Levins, and Andrew Cerceoni (sp?), were stopped and detained by the Suffolk County Police, police car # 522; Police officers refused to identify themselves. We were detained for questioning concerning the distribution of fliers in the area of Gerard Ave., concerning the UFO incident in South Haven Park on Nov. 24, 1992. Todays incident involved intimidation and threats made by the Suffolk County Police in an effort to stop us from distributing literature concerning the incident. The officer told us point blank, he said, `I'm here because you people are handing out this garbage. Because you're scaring people and causing a panic.' The police said if we continued to do so they would be back to harass us. The incident is reported on Suffolk County Police blotter number 93-13373 at the Suffolk County Police Headquarters at Yaphank New York. One police officers shield number is 3453, of the Suffolk County police, fifth precinct. The Officer refused to identify himself, but he was in car number 522. The incident was photographed by LIUFON investigators. Government intimidation and threats, as of now we do plan to continue our investigations. We do intend to continue it, we do intend to take legal action. We will be in contact with the ACLU in the next 24 hours and we do intend a letter going to the police Commissioner and also notification to the news media concerning this threat. I would like letters of protest from investigators/researchers all across the country to be sent to the:
% the Suffolk County Police Dept,
Yaphank, New York 11980
protesting the harassment of the LIUFON investigative teams attempt to investigate the incident in South Haven Park. Refer to:
Police Report Number 93-13373
Jan. 9, 1993 involving car number 522
and police officer shield number 3453.
As of Jan. 9, 1993, LIUFON has marked its investigative folder on the South Haven Park case, no longer as a suspected UFO Crash, but as a confirmed UFO incident!
After this incident, LIUFON was informed by the mother of Mike P., that after they harrassed us, they were going back, stoping and questioning the people that we had talked to."
John Ford, Chairman - LIUFON
