This story takes place in Donna, TX. The year was 1996. Some friends and I had a basketball game that night. We returned to Donna around midnight. I had a car, so I was the “taxi.” We left Donna High School toward Victoria Rd. We turned left and proceeded toward the overpass. When we were at the highest point of the overpass, you could see a lady in black standing on the side of the road. She was at the very end of the overpass.
After reading this story, it seems to be related to the phenomena known as “Astral Projection.”
According to wikipedia, “Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out of body experience (OBE), a supposed form of telepathy, that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an “astral body” that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside of it throughout the universe.”

“All these happened in the same house.
OK, I was in my teens, I remember this was during my high school days. I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a little boy standing over me. I asked, “who are you?” He answered, “Jack!” (Yea, I know, I named my son Jack also.)
Then he like jumped INTO me. I felt my body walk to my parents room and stand there in front of their bed. My mom woke up scared asking who I was. Like she didn’t see me, she saw someone else. All that could come out of my mouth was the name Jack although I kept trying to say, “get out.”
Next thing I remember, I plopped down on my bed, opened my eyes and said out loud “Jack!” My body was halfway off the bed when I woke up. I then went to wake my mom to ask if I was just there, she said no. I told her what happened, she tried telling me it was just a dream. She took me back to my room, I looked at the reflection on my TV and saw a little boy standing in the hallway leaning against the wall. I kept telling my mom he was there. She didn’t see him. Only I could.
Another event was my dad waking up to a noise thinking it was either my sister or I playing. He said he saw a little boy throwing a ball against the wall.
This was around Christmas time. I remember all the decorations being up in the house. My sister and I were home alone. We were in the living room watching TV. Then it went snowy. We tried every button on the remote but nothing worked, even buttons on the TV.
Then the TV volume went up and down and all the way up and turned off on its own. We were freaking out. We went to my room, then the train we had in our little Christmas village turned on and starting moving. We were too scared to go see why. It went around a few times before turning off.
Then I looked in the hallway and saw a tall transparent man with a long coat and hat and suitcase. He disappeared before I shut the door. We called my grandpa that lived an hour away, he came for us right away. We didn’t leave my room till he got there.
A lot of bad things happened to our family while at that house, but those are the paranormal parts I remember.”-Vanessa Irino
Thank you for your interesting story, Vanessa. What do you all think? Have any of you ever experienced something like this before? Leave us a comment below.
3 AM is known as the “Witching Hour” as it has been told throughout history that the vale between the supernatural and the living is at its thinnest, therefore leaving it more susceptible to paranormal/demonic activity. Check out what Cindy had to say about a creepy experience involving a flying creature she witnessed at 3 AM.
“I used to live in a condo in McAllen back in 2013. It was a little after 3 AM when my dog barked to let her out for her business. I always go out with her and I remember seeing something huge and black fly nearby and it landed on a nearby small electric pole.
At that point I was frozen and didn’t know what to do. I was too scared to grab my dog and run back in thinking I’d cause it to go after us, so I tried to act like I wasn’t scared. It was all black and somewhat looked like a big black coat. I had never seen such a thing that part of me felt like it was just some bad evil thing.
It then flew away with some huge black wings. It wasn’t close enough for me to tell what kind of a face it was. Till this day I have no clue and wonder if it was a vulture but part of me thinks it had to have been something else. Whatever it was freaked me out and I still remember till this day.” -Cindy
There have been many reports concerning flying humanoids in Deep South Texas. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
We have been having a lot of stories come in from Edinburg, Texas. There seems to be something going on there around the University area. Some people are unaware of the 4th floor of the Library. Here’s the latest story from there.
I work the graveyard shift at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley formerly called UTPA. Working graveyard shift, you hear a lot of stories, but one story that I have heard is pretty creepy.
This incident was told to me I was not present when this occurred.
It was around 1:30 or 2am and a police officer went to the library to contact a custodian, as the officer reached the 4th floor of the library and the elevator doors opened a small child about 4 or 5 years of age ran past him giggling. Of course the only thought that came to the officers mind was “Why would the custodian bring his son to work?” The officer called to the boy but the boy was long gone and didn’t answer the officers calls.

This is a story that was sent to us via Facebook.
I’m curious who on here has heard of The Devil at Los Arcos. I’ve heard this story many times sometimes from a”friend” of a person who was present that night, and even from a person who claimed to be a witness to the unexpected visitor that night. Either way, the story goes like this.
On a hot, West Texas night, a dance was in full swing at the well known Los Arco’s Ballroom. As Norteno music played loud enough to be heard several blocks away, the crowded dance hall moved with couples both young and old . The smell of beer and liquor swelled, reaching out beyond the walls like a haze above the building.
Inside, the ballroom was dimly lit with only the colored lights on stage and a yellow hue of the bar that gave little light to the people inside . This particular night was extremely busy. A favored band was playing and the crowded dance floor left little room for movement. Sometime, during the music and movement, a stranger appears. No one claims to have seen him walk in but only that he was suddenly there. The people begin to ask; who is this man? He is not from here, some guessed he was from a neighboring town others assumed he was was simply a new resident to the oil boom town.
“When I was between 15-17 (1996-1998) years old, and living in The Colony, TX (about 20 minutes from downtown Dallas, and still small towns back then), a group of friends and I decided it would be a great idea to go to Zion Cemetery in Frisco, TX.
It was one of the last weekends before school let out for summer, and some of us were moving away, or wouldn’t have time to hang out in the summer.
There have been many reports of flying humanoids around the Deep South Texas area near the border of Texas-Mexico. Check out what “Stubz” had to say about his peculiar experience at a Denny’s in McAllen, TX.
There are two locations so not sure which one they're talking about but here are the addresses to both. Denny's 1110 S 10th St Denny's 401 E Nolana Ave
“I saw this humanoid a couple weeks back, me my brother and his fiance were headed to Denny’s to go eat.
This story comes to us from Austin, TX.
“I’ve only had a handful, of run-ins with ghosts. I’ve never seen an actual apparition. I’ve seen things move, but that is not the story, which I tell today. For a few years, what happened, would bug me for a long time.
I worked at Roy’s Taxi, from 1995-2006. I was a dispatcher, but also drove from time to time. Yes, you may play Prince’s Lady Cab Driver, in your head, when you think of me. =P
Back in 1997, when I was 26, I actually lived at Roy’s Taxi for a year, with my then boyfriend. The business, was ran out of the house that Roy Velasquez senior, built for his family. The house was located in downtown, on the south bound side of IH-35, just a block south of Cesar Chavez.
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 https://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.
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

“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
