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 comes to us from West Texas. Check it out.
“Well, it happened in the town of Post, Texas while my brother and I were young. It happened one night while walking home on a hot West Texas Summer night while walking in the alley towards our home.
While walking down the alley, I get a feeling we are being followed, so I tell my little brother, Mike, if he sees what I see at the end of the alley. A very tall, black figure that you could not see his face, but the darkness of his figure.
So we begin to walk faster and as we do the the figure begins to move faster, but as if floating on the dirt towards us, so we begin to run even faster and the black figure begins to catch up til we get home and slide through the screen door pale as a ghost,shaking and scared. We told my mom and she was really scared for us and we never found out what that figure was.”-John
This story takes place in Rio Grande City, TX. Check it out.
“This was a couple of years back. I had this habit of staying up until very late hours of the night. On one particular night, I was doing the usual, listening to my earphones under the tree outside my house, it was around 3 am there was a full moon so it wasn’t very dark. All of a sudden i started to get goosebumps out of nowhere, and i began to get the sense that i was being watched so I just stood up and quickly checked behind me …nothing.
Everything was completely silent, you could not hear any sound whatsoever. Weird, but not unusual. Suddenly, I started to here wings flapping it sounded loud and as I look up I see a man flying with giant bat-like wings.
I feel my blood drop and I froze and as I get back into my senses, I take out my phone to try to get a picture, but it was too dark. I watched as it slowly flew away, I began to realize that this thing I just saw actually exists. This humanoid creature roams our town late at night watching us.” -Jessica Herrera
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.

“Ok so this happened to my friend and I around 2005 I was 20 years old. We had a couple of beers each earlier in the night so pretty much sober. We were driving on highway 59 right outside of Houston near an area called kingwood. This is the first time I have tried to write the experience down so bear with me and feel free to ask me any questions or details if you’d like.
So it was about 3:00am and he was driving I was in the passenger seat. It was a large 3 lane highway and was illuminated quite well with those ‘orange’ colored street lights. In the distance we noticed something in the middle of the freeway, it looked to me like a man on crutches and my immediate thought was that it was a bum or something. But when we got closer it was apparent that it was without a doubt not human.
Here is another story from Casey in Mission, TX, home of La Homa Road, one of the scariest roads in all of Texas. We continue to hear about creepy and paranormal encounters from this area. Check out Casey’s story.
“I live on La Homa in Mission TX. I moved in 3 years ago with my wife and mother in law. Well, one day I came back from church and my wife went to shower while I stayed in our room watching television with the lights off. When I felt comfortable and cold I grabbed my cover and started dozing off to sleep.
Marshall, Texas is littered with reports about the paranormal and supernatural.
Check out what Becky had to say about Marshall, TX.
“If you want to scare someone, you take them down Stagecoach Road. At night you stop the car, roll down the windows, and turn off the lights. The very last time I was there, we did this. We then felt the back end of the truck go down, like something was stepping on the back bumper.
A man living in Mission, TX shares a report about an ominous dark cloud.
“Well, this actually happened last night and this morning I stumble on this cool blog, what are the odds?
“Last night, after spending some time at my friends house here in Mission, I was driving home on La Homa Rd. I live out in the colonias passing 107. I take this road all the time at night, its very dark with no lights at all.
It’s around 12:40 when I was driving down the road, almost home, when a few feet in front of me, just about where your car light ends to see what’s in front of you, I witness this large black cloud float across the street extremely fast.
