Inmates at the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside tried got a little help connecting with the other side when Long Island’s most famous psychic paid them a visit.
Theresa Caputo, a medium who claims to help people communicate with their dead loved ones, filmed a segment for an upcoming episode of TLC’s “Long Island Medium” on Feb. 11.
It was the second time the coiffured clairvoyant visited the facility for her show. She performed readings for female inmates around this time last year.
She helped male inmates talk to spirits this time around.
Chief Sharkey said the inmates were screened prior to filming.
“I wasn’t really sure what to expect. It seemed as if during the beginning it might have been a little difficult. I would say maybe 20 minutes in they seemed to warm-up,” he said. “There were 10 guys in the group. Eight out of 10 participated significantly.
“I’m told the inmates were pretty emotional in the follow-up interview.”
The jail isn’t the only East End locale the show has featured. The show also filmed a segment at Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard, where Caputo performed an impromptu reading for her limo driver.
It is not clear when the episode will air. Representatives from TLC could not immediately be reached for comment.
