“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
“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

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.
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.
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 .
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.

My husband and I live in an apartment complex on the second floor in McAllen off of Tamarack ave and we have experienced some paranormal activities over the few years we have been living there.
When my friends come over they always feel uneasy especially in our bedroom, since its a one bedroom apartment they can see it from where we sit in the living room.
When my husband and I are in bed getting ready to sleep we occasionally here cupboard being closed or random noises from the kitchen and dining room area.
“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.
A buddy of mine told me the story. He was an older friend of mine and he told me that in the late 80’s everybody used to cruise on 10th St. in McAllen Texas. He said that he had pulled into a McDonald’s and met up with some girls.
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.
