Ghost in a Tux

“I work at Dillard’s in McAllen,Texas and I’ve been working there for 15 yrs.  I used to work up stairs in the home dept.

One day, I was walking in the stock room because we used to wrap wedding presents in there and I looked to the left at the way end of the room.

I saw a tall man dressed in an old fashion tuxedo.  He was reaching up on the top shelf.  He looked at me and I looked at him.  I was about to wrap the gift when suddenly it hit me.

I looked again and he was gone.  I got scared and went out.  I told my co-worker about it.  He said, “yes, I’ve seen ladies dresses in old fashion clothes, with umbrellas. They look at me and smile.”-Gracie

Ghost Boy Sighting (McAllen, TX)

“I have an experience I had back in 2012 at my apartment on 11th St. in McAllen, TX.  One cold December evening, I left to go visit my father at a nursing home, while walking towards the apt exit next to the pool area, there’s a boy about 7 yrs. old wearing a square short sleeve shirt and jeans.  The night was a little cold and lightly raining.  The boy was facing towards the pool and I just left, but I kept thinking to myself, what a little boy would be doing alone outside.

The neighborhood was quiet and no one was outside because of the cold weather and light rain, so I just left.  When I got back from visiting my dad, I saw the boy standing facing the apt office window.  He was just still, I asked him, “are you ok?”  He turned and looked at me and said, “I wanna go there.”

He pointed to the east side of the apt. I said, “where do you live?” and he kept pointing to the east side, so I said, “go in to your house.”  So, he just started walking toward an empty apt, opened the door and went in, but that apt was empty and I waited for him to get inside. The apt looked dark, but he went inside and the door just closed by itself.

I felt chills cause the boy was outside by himself when I left and he was also at the same place when I got back about 2 hrs later.  Then, when I told a friend of mine who lived at the apts about the boy, she said that years back a little boy drowned there in the pool.”-Irma

“In Early February of 2017, I was traveling East bound on Jasmine Street in McAllen, TX with my wife when I happened to notice something incredibly creepy in the backyard of a home located on the North side of the street.

Around 8:30pm, standing in the backyard was the dark figure of a man planking/leaning against the side of the garage of the home in question.

La Llorona Spotted on Military Road Along the Rio Grande River

This story comes to us from a man in South Texas who looked at La Llorona dead in the eyes. This story takes place right along the Rio Grande River. We have another story that took place along the same river about 45 miles East, you can read it here. If you have seen or heard La Llorona, we would love to hear about it, you can share it with the community here.

One night one of my older brothers and I were visiting some friends in Peñitas, Texas. They lived by Military Road. It was about Midnight when my brother and I decided to head back home to La Joya, that’s where we lived. Well, if any of you have ever driven on Military road from Peñitas to La Joya, you know how the road runs parallel to The Rio Grand River and you must have heard the story of the Llorona.

Well the road has a small hill when you leave Peñitas City limits heading West towards La Joya. That road is beautiful at night because you can see the stars in the skies clearly. It is very DARK AND DESOLATE and Scary at night…lol… So we head back home and as I was approaching that small hill on the road I see a lady walking along the road on the shoulder wearing what seemed to be a white dress and was barefoot. Mind you that the shoulders on the road are pretty rough.

Phantom Stomping, Shadow People and Orbs in South Texas

Here’s a story sent in from South Texas (McAllen). This isn’t the first story we’ve had of floating orbs from that region. Click here to read a similar story from Lyford, Texas. The following story has sound associated with it though, very strange. If you have a story about these strange floating orbs, we would love to hear it. Send it in to us here.

One early morning, about 10 years ago, I was hanging out with a buddy at my apt.  Actually, it was more like a guest house as it was located in the back of my best friend’s older brother’s house.  My buddy and I were watching television late one evening in the living room and I had the front door open to let fresh air in.  As we watched television, he suddenly freaked out and said he just saw a figure of a man walk by the door outside and then disappear.  We went outside to confirm and saw nothing.  Of course, the first thing I did was call him crazy, accuse him of just being drunk and dismissed the whole thing.

Then, about 2 weeks later we were hanging out again watching T.V. with the door open one early morning around 2:45 am when we heard what sounded like a grown 250 pound man stomping extremely hard through the yard and onto the small garden located just outside the front door.

We’ve received yet another story about a lady in white. We just posted a story about a lady in white that you can read here. We also had a story sent in from McAllen about a lady in black. We want to know if any of our readers have spotted a mysterious floating woman like this before, please let us know here.

I moved to Monte Cristo Rd. in 2011. One night I was driving home going East on Monte Cristo coming from the expressway and was stuck at the light on Doolittle and Monte Cristo. The roads were empty but the light outside was decent. As I waited for the light to change I looked around noticing the roads were empty and it was only around 10:30 pm.

The Phantom Lady of El Centro Mall

If anyone from the Rio Grande Valley remembers El Centro Mall in Pharr, Texas, you will remember its good ole days but as the mall got older it did become a bit creepy to be in there. As tenants left, the mall became more and more lonely but, haunted? For those of you who don’t know where El Centro Mall was, it’s where Main Event, Academy and the movie theater are now in Pharr. If anyone has ever had an encounter there, we would like to here about it. 

The following story was submitted by Jose

This story was told to me by my dad. First of all my dad is a skeptical person and he never tells a lie so I don’t think this is a made up story.

Years back, way before new businesses and buildings were built where El Centro Mall was demolished, my dad used to work night shift as a custodian there. Him and another co-worker used to clean the stores at night. One night while my dad was working and around 10pm, the mall was closed and was completely deserted except for my dad and the other worker. He decided to take a short coffee break so he went and looked for his co-worker so they could go together for the coffee break. It happened that his co-worker was working at the other end of the mall .

Inside El Centro Mall, Pharr, Texas

 

So as my dad was walking his way over there through the glass reflection he saw a lady going the opposite way and he swears he also heard the lady’s high heels echoing on the quiet floor. My dad says he glanced around to try and greet the lady to tell her it wasn’t shopping hours and she wasn’t to be inside since the mall was closed to the public. But as he turned around he didn’t see the lady there anymore but when he glanced back at the glass window her reflection was there. She was standing still and my dad got the cold chills running down his back. He quickly paced to go find his co-worker.

When they both got together my dad was shocked at what he experienced and after his co-worker’s many attempts of asking my dad if there was something wrong my dad finally gave in and told him what he saw. His co-worker’s reaction was not surprised, instead he said to my dad that he wasn’t the first person to actually see that phantom lady. A couple of other workers saw the phantom too. So my dad asked him who she was and he told my dad the story.

It dated back to the 60’s before the mall was even built. In it’s place used to be a ladies bar. One night back then a lady got murdered real ugly by a serial killer that happened to be here at the time. The lady was drinking but before she died she left a grudge. She swore to come back to get the killer. So since the mall got torn down maybe she will be in peace but who knows.

The Midnight Game – Harlingen, TX

My cousin and I experienced this paranormal activity in Harlingen in late November 2014. It’s an event that we have shared with our family and have never been able to explain. It was an eerie experience that has luckily never occurred again, but it is also something that we can’t get our mind off of and can’t seem to understand.

One night the lights went out, we lit candles and sat in the living room for about 20 minutes before my cousin decided it would be a good idea to play hide and seek (something we always did whenever we were bored). I didn’t want to play because I was afraid of the dark. That’s when we opted for me using a candle. As soon as I grabbed a candle my cousin was gone. I was scared to say the least.

Sasquatch in the Rio Grande Valley

Hello, first off I’m a fan of the site, I’m a new fan and have been coming here off and on for the past couple of months. I have an encounter of sorts I would like to share. It happened back in the summer of 1995 in Edcouch, TX. I was 15 years old at the time, I’m 37 now and remember it like it was yesterday.

Well, this one night I had a buddy of mine come over, we wanted to rent some video games and movies so I asked my mom if I could borrow the car and head out. She said no and I had a fit, blew a gasket teenage style. I stormed out of the house and walked down the street to cool down. I didn’t even bother telling my friend either, I just left. I walked down to the end of the street to where the street lamps didn’t shine. I took a seat right at the middle of the street and put my head down. At that time my old neighborhood was right next to a corn field, and the rest of the lots were filled with overgrown dry, tall grass and an abundance of mesquite trees. We also had an old meat market that had closed down some years before and was now just an empty vandalized building. The meat market was located on the opposite side of the block and therefore my street was on the backside of the property.
