Whispering ghost girl and bouncing orbs in Deep South Texas

We have had a few stories occurring on 11th street in McAllen, TX.  In this instance, a woman named Irene, talks about a strange ball of light she witnessed in her apt with her boyfriend.  This story may correlate to a similar story which took place just a few streets away from 11th street.  You can read that story here http://truehorrorstoriesoftexas.com/strange-lights/phantom-stomping-shadow-people-orbs-south-texas/

Here is Irene’s experience…

“Hi, I have a similar experience.  I lived in an apt on 11th St. in McAllen, TX.  My boyfriend and I were in the living room talking and then all of a sudden a silver ball that looked like an orb bounced from the ceiling fan and flew straight to the front door and disappeared.Image result for bouncing orb

It looked so real, but it was weird because it came out from the ceiling fan and hit the front door.  We thought the ceiling fan was gonna catch on fire, but the orb just disappeared.  I also had weird ghost experiences in that apt.  A little girl’s voice would whisper in my ear when I was going to bed, saying “Good Night “ or would have nightmares of a hairy figure trying to choke me.”-Irene

South Texas Flying Humanoid Encounter (McAllen,TX)

Texas is home to several eyewitness accounts when it comes to different types of flying humanoids.  From the Houston Batman to the Galveston Mothman, Texas has it’s fair share of terrifying and unusual cryptids.  Check out this story below from a McAllen, Texas native.

“The day I left the valley I was in the backyard of my childhood home in McAllen, Texas taking one last look at my garden when I noticed all the neighborhood dogs started barking at once.  I happened to look up and see a humanoid creature that had wings like a bat, but the body and head of a human.

This creature had legs I could see hanging down and what looked like hairless grey skin.  It was just hovering over my house flapping it’s wings once every few seconds.  I was petrified to the point where I could do nothing but stand and stare till it flew off going south.”

Goatman Encounter

A woman shares a story about a possible encounter with the Goat Man of Texas.

“When I was around 8 I was walking home from my school (not supposed to), but I remember walking along the road and a car pulls up.  I’m looking and I see it holding a gun on the seat.  As I’m looking briefly at the gun, I see goat feet.  Hooves and all.  This thing had a trench coat and had an abundance of fur.

I recall grabbing my friend’s hand, turning around and ran back to our school.  This was in like 88.  I know it sounds crazy, but I know what I saw in broad daylight. God has been beside me always because that’s not the only thing I’ve seen in my 36 years of life. I feel lucky though. If that sounds weird.” -Sabrina

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.

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.
