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.

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.
