Guardian Angel in Laredo, TX

“I’m originally from Laredo, TX; which in it’s own right has a lot of haunted history. I am now a professional story teller and I travel from school to school to tell my ghost stories, and the kids love them. The one thing I always mention at the beginning of each ghost story is that they are ALL true. All of them. Each one of my stories is a part of my past and it all started when I was 3 years old. Here’s the beginning of my continuing ghost story.

Back in 1985 my mom noticed something off about me. I was very quiet and kept to myself. At times she would come towards me to comfort me or hold me and I would scream at the top of my lungs at her attempt. My mother knew something was wrong but she couldn’t put her finger on it. After visiting a few doctors not one could give my mother an accurate diagnosis. So, I was taken home. It wasn’t until one night that my mom fed me some spaghetti and as I finished my plate I looked over to my mom and said, “It hurts here mama.” pointing to my lower right side of my stomach.

Duende of the Corn – Santa Maria, Texas

It’s hard to believe in paranormal activity, especially when you have never had a reason to believe in it. My story proved to me that unusual things can happen, here is my story:

A couple of my closest friends and I usually hung out around a campfire on Saturday nights to relax from the stressing week days. It was usually always the typical thing… we all crashed at our friend’s house and just enjoyed the cold weather in our boots and Carhartt jackets feeling the warmth of the bonfire at our feet. We usually stayed till the fire dies or till our parents decided when it was time to head home. However, on one Saturday night of November 2015, we decided to change things a bit and do something that would leave us full of memories.

The Floating Cadejo

An uncle of mine told me this story several years ago.  He claimed this happened in the late 70’s in McAllen, Texas near the location of where the current McAllen Medical Center hospital stands.  Back then the place was mostly fields with not many businesses around.  My uncle was not the type of person to experiment with drugs or psychedelics even in the 70’s which is why I believed him when he relayed this story to me.  That, along with the genuine fear and concern in his voice when I heard him tell the story is why I believe him.

So, one late evening he’s walking along a corn field while attempting to hitchhike back home to Donna, Texas from a dance he had previously attended near Mission, Texas.  He had already hiked several miles and wound up near the location of this incident.  As he was walking along the field, he sees a huge black dog hovering above the corn field keeping pace with him.  One thing that always sticks out for me was the way he described the creature’s eyes.  “Two huge burning red eyes the size of large grapefruits.”

Still hoping for a car to pick him up, he notices the creature gazing at him and decides to walk faster, but unfortunately, so does the creature.  At this point he starts to full on sprint and the thing continues to keep pace with him all while floating creepily at least a foot above the corn field.  At this point, he is absolutely terrified and convinced this thing is going to try to harm him.  Luckily for him, a car pulls over in the nick of time and offers him a ride home.

After doing some research, he may have witnessed what many people have described as a “cadejo”, which according to Wikipedia, “is a supernatural character from Central American and southern Mexican folklore. There is a good white cadejo and an evil black cadejo.”

In other cultures, it is known as a “hellhound” or “black Shuck” and has often been recognized as a harbinger for death.  However, according to the website http://hispanic-culture-online.com/el-cadejo-legend-central-america.html, they claim that “Given the Cadejo’s choice of “victim,” one of the most common explanations is that the legend serves a morality tale, discouraging heavy drinking and staying out late.”  Only this was no tale.

Mutating figure changes man’s life – Edinburg, Texas

Hi, my name is Jose, this is my story and what led me to believe in the paranormal. A group of friends and I created a team dedicated to the investigation of the paranormal to help people with similar problems. I grew up in Edinburg Texas. I must of had been at least 12 years old. My parents had rented a house there for us to live in while my dad was building our home. We didn’t last very long there, at the most probably 6 months. There was nothing abnormal about the house when we moved in but, as the days passed, things started to change.

Sometimes, I would be taking a bath and the light would turn off. Also, I would be in the restroom brushing my teeth and the shower would turn on. At other times I would be watching TV in my room and the door would open and when I would get up and see which one of my brothers it was, I would find myself starring down an empty hall and no one was there.

The Time Travel Whirlwind Vortex of La Homa Rd.

First of all I wanna give thanks to my friend who lent me his email to make it possible for me to submit this story and also wanna say thanks to True Horror Stories of Texas for opening this website where we can have the privilege of sharing our experiences with the public. Once again thanks. Now back to relating my paranormal experience.

This experience happened a few days back while driving with my friend, him being the passenger. We were like most people playing the famous Pokemon Go and finding Pokemons. We were traveling past Hwy 107 and La Homa Rd. where there’s almost no street lights and it’s pitch black. Just the headlights of our car lit the road ahead of us. And us being so into the phone didn’t realize we were so far away off from where we were supposed to be.

Ghost Kids Dancing on Bed – La Homa

On the heels of naming La Homa Road in Mission as The Most Haunted Road in Texas, we received another story from there. We are not entirely sure if this could be duendes or ghost kids, let us know what you think in the comments below.

I live in La Homa, Mission, Texas, with my wife and in laws and. I have lived here for a total of 3 years already. Well one day we got home from church and my wife decided to take a shower while I stayed in our room watching television with the lights off. I was feeling comfortable and cold so I grabbed my cover and started dozing off. I closed my eyes with the covers over my head, all of a sudden in an instant I felt a force pulling me down as I fought to get up, while trying to move, I felt small feet jumping or prancing on top of my bed and heard voices. I felt my heart racing and continued trying to get up, before I arose I heard a terrible demonic voice saying, “heheheheheheh, have fun tonight”.

Today, it is fenced in.  People have claimed to hear the screams of the children.  However, most of the locals figure it is the teens that hang around there. Continue reading Anniversary of Mission Bus Tragedy – Alton, Texas

The Haunted Mirror

This story was submitted to us by a South Texas man.  Check it out!

“This story was told to me by one of my cousins during a cookout.  This is the story relayed from his point of view:

I had a friend from Mexico that one day purchased an old Victorian sized wall mirror from an antique store and the seller told him a few warning signs before taking the mirror home.  He said the mirror must always remain covered up during the night.

Once my friend got home with the mirror, he admired his reflection before covering it up.  When dusk approached and his room started to get dark, he swore he heard someone knocking inside the covered mirror.  So like the saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat.”  He uncovered the mirror and what he states next is kind of hard to believe.
