A couple of months ago we were contacted by Mike out of La Joya, TX who claims to have witnessed a bizarre cryptid in West Texas. Check out Mike’s story below.
“Hello my name is Michael A. I’m from South Texas (La Joya ,TX). I’m here working in the pipe line, staying in Monohans, TX.
Well, a few months ago I went down to my home place. A few days later, I came back. It was a hot sunny afternoon and took me 9 hours to get to Fort Stockton. From there I took highway 18 North towards Monahans, TX.”
Something didn’t felt right. It was a lonely highway. Saw many dead deer and animals along that highway. About 15-20 minutes North I saw something eating a dead deer. I stopped to see what it was, that thing popped its head up while chewing that deer meat.
It was about 3 feet high. If you have seen that movie, “Critters” it looked exactly like that, except its colors were brown with black spots.
It might have been two arms or long ears coming down its head. I can still see those sharp shark-looking teeth full of blood to this day. I’m not making this up. So travelers going towards the oil fields be extra careful. Be aware when you stop to take a piss on that highway.”
This story was sent in by a woman in Deep South Texas claiming to have seen a phantom lady in white. Check it out…
“The following is a story my mother and father have told to us several times. This happened in the Summer of 1974 in San Juan, Texas.
My parents were teenagers at the time and my mother was pregnant with my older sister. They lived with my grandparents in a tiny house which was rented from Don Octavio on 1st street. The house was a one bedroom shack, so my parents would sleep on the kitchen floor. One hot summer night, my parents had been arguing before bed, and went to sleep angry at each other.
The entrance door of the house was in the kitchen where they slept and they were accustomed to leaving the main door open with the screen door shut so they could get some kind of breeze through the house. My mother was falling asleep when suddenly a gust of wind blew the screen door wide open! She opened her eyes and tried to get up to shut the screen door, but couldn’t! She couldn’t move or talk, like if she was paralyzed!
In September of 2017 we received a story on our True Horror Stories of Texas Facebook group page from a Forth Worth, TX woman. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1434190123549921/

“I have a real problem. When I was little I did witchcraft and played with voodoo dolls. My parents didn’t pay any attention. I didn’t believe in God and thought I was a witch. I live in the house I grew up and now I believe in Jesus and things are going haywire. I was even scratched last night. I hear footsteps my name called all kinds of things.”
We responded, “Scratches are often associated with demonic haunting or attempted possessions. This might not be true in your case, but it is an interesting theory.”
She replied, “No it’s true already I’m aware of it. They want me. I just got off the phone with my friend on speaker and she said that she heard a man’s voice talking in the background and there’s no one here but me.”- Juliet
We have tried to follow up with her, but she hasn’t responded. We hope she’s alright. Here are the pictures she sent in. Have any of you ever experienced anything like this?
This happened while working at PD Glycol in Beaumont Texas. Behind the massive Mobil Oil Refinery one night at around 2am a friend and I were heading back to the maintenance shop while on unit start-up coverage. While driving back to the shop, making a curve I spotted something walking on all fours by a holding tank.
It was stealthy like a panther only heavier. I turned the truck to the left to put the lights on it and asked my friend Marcus Montes what is that? We stopped and got out to look at this dark furred, 200+ pound creature with a face like a barn owl. When it turned to look at us we could see black fur that came up to its face like a chimpanzee. After crossing some cribbing it stood and turned around to look at us, went back down on all fours and disappeared into the darkness around the tank. I asked “What was that?” and Marcus didn’t know.
Today we were blown away by an awesome piece of artwork that was created for us by Delvis Cortez. Delvis is an artist in the Rio Grande Valley and a long time fan of THSOT. He does all types of work but specializes in horror type art.
The piece was done by hand on a large piece of canvas with acrylic paint. We stayed out of Delvis’ way and we couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. The art will be on display on our podcast shows where we breakdown and analyze the stories from around Texas.
Has anyone had a paranormal experience on the deserted highway between Raymondville and Port Mansfield?
This story goes back to the year 2000. My best friend and I went to go fishing on that Port Mansfield Pier. Being that it’s a no charge entrance, we decided to pay it a visit. So at 5:00pm we were on our way through that deserted highway 186. Since it was still daylight, everything was normal. We fished the whole afternoon, enjoying a different atmosphere and a nice view, inhaling the fresh breeze of the sea.
Nightfall came around and we continued fishing through the night. 3:00am came around and we decided to call it a night and packed our fishing gear in the trunk of the car. So off we went back home. By 4:00am, driving through that lonely road, we came that bend on the road on Highway 186. We were doing like 80 miles per hour, trying to get home to McAllen to avoid the early morning traffic on Highway 281. So out of the corner of my friend’s Guillermo’s eye, a big silhouette popped out of the woods on the side of the road like 10 feet ahead of us.
