The real story is that a farmer saw hatch dragging a woman down potato hill rd. The man went to prison but has been released recently. There are graveyards and use to be a rocking chair on the dirt rd off of star hill rd. many hunters camp out up there in the fall so people may have seen lanterns
Hatch has not been released and everyone has carmichael hill and Starr hill missed up there is a book out about the hatch murders on potato hill road

Otto died this winter, and he was no relation to hatch. Just an excentric old man.

I used to go up there often as a young man and "wait for something to happen " at the cemetery. Otto would walk up with Dog just to make sure no one was cracking headstones. Very strange man but VERY NICE. I will miss the hermit on the hill.

"Potato Hill Killer" denied parole for seventh time

AUBURN, N.Y.(WKTV)- The man known as the "Potato Hill Killer," Bernard Hatch, has had his parole denied.

Hatch was convicted in 1973 of killing Mary Turner, who was strangled and dragged behind a car along Potato Hill Road in Steuben. Her torso had been found underneath a pile of mud, with other parts of her body found separately nearby.

Hatch was convicted after a more than 70 day trial and has been serving out his sentence of 25 years to life at the Auburn Correctional Facility.

The parole board said that despite Hatch's insistence on innocence, letters of support, and accomplishments in prison, the extreme violence exhibited in the crime and disregard for the victim, gave them no choice but to deny his parole for the seventh time.

"Your release would incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law," the parole board said in an issued statement.

The Board said the decision was based on the fact that the instant offense is murder for which Hatch is serving a 25-life sentence, and that the crime involved the killing of a young female victim, mutilating her body, and burying parts of her body in different sites

After the Revolutionary War General Baron Von Steuben settled the land at Starr Hill. When he died he was buried in an unmarked grave. At some point the burial place was disturbed and the town erected a monument and state historical site. Apparently it's the General himself out there on Starr Hill. In the past 25 years ive been there a half donzen times and have not seen the strange white light again. My girlfreind thinks I'm nuts. But she still likes to sit in the car in the dark on Starr Hill in hopes of seeing the Steuben Ghost!
