Floating Lady In White On HWY 107 – Mission, TX

In South Texas, whenever we hear a story about a ghostly lady in white, we usually think about the legend of La Llorona (the crying woman).  You can check out related stories here.  Perhaps this is what Ivan saw in Mission, TX?  Check out his story below.

“It was a night out with my friends. I was the young freshman around some seniors partying so I was their designated driver at the time. It was in 1998. As we left the party in Mission, my friend said, “lets go to my ranch.” which is on Los Ebanos Road in Mission, TX and 107 going up towards 9 Mile Line.

 As we turned into Los Ebanos Road on 107 going north, there was a lady in white floating along the road. I have asked around and all the neighbors are used to seeing her. She was floating along the roadside. We got so scared and braked to avoid hitting her.” – Ivan M

Thank you, Ivan for your story.

“There Is A Little Witch In All Of Us” – (Pharr, TX)

Our Next story comes to us from “T” in Pharr, TX.  She writes about a family legend that has stuck with them for decades and may still be impacting them til this day.

“Growing up with my grandmother in Pharr, Texas was filled with stories of Lechuzas and Duendes (little elf beings snatching bratty children). A story of my great aunt, “Kina” came up that I could never forget and deserves some recognition. It all started with a little scandal of a relative, this relative’s new lover went down to Mexico to find a witch to cast illness to the children that belonged to the first wife.

All got sick, especially the youngest, Leandro, he had warts all over his face and in his eyes and a burning temp, this little boy was going to die. Out of all my grandmother’s sisters, Tia Kina, small 100 pound woman, found it in her to do something. She got the bible, held the poor boy, and prayed for life. She started chanting a special prayer backwards, and if you know Spanish prayer, that’s hard.

Then a Lechuza flew in and started attacking my aunt, they say it was a big brown owl with the face of a woman. So, my aunt grabs the ugly owl as its now trying to pry away from her as she has it in her grasps, she continues the special prayer to try to kill it. As she finished the chant, the little boy is getting scars all around his body and the Lechuza is cowering away.

Feathers all around the room. She fought the creepy owl off with some straight love and devotion. I can’t say much for the relative who caused all this, but I can say the little boy lived. After almost losing his eye sight, he got better quickly, still scars on his face as a 60 year old man. My Tia Kina died of breast cancer shortly thereafter..leaving little ones behind.

It is said that whatever it was that the Lechuza was trying to kill the young boy with flew into her body and caused her cancer. She passed, but her story isn’t forgotten. There is a little witch in all of us.” – T

Brujas Of La Homa Road

Here is another story from one of the most haunted roads in all of Texas, La Homa Road in Mission, Texas.  Check it out.

“BRUJAS OF
LA HOMA RD.”

“Back in 1994 I used to work in a fast food restaurant where we sold hot dogs, burgers. etc. For security purposes, I will omit the name of restaurant, but I will say it was located on North 10th. St. in McAllen, Texas. Well, basically this occurrence is not focused on that restaurant, but I’m a very detailed person who likes to relate stories point by point.

OK, with that said, here’s what I experienced back then. Til this day I still have a hard time believing it.

Well, back then that restaurant closed at 12 PM and a few co-workers and myself stayed after hours to clean up. Back then a female coworker always needed a ride home so one of my coworker’s friend of mine and I took her home. Due to her living so far away from McAllen, I went with my friend to drop her off to where she lived on La Homa Road. Back in 1994 La Homa Road was a deserted, dark, lonely road with not too many houses and partially lit by a few street lights.

So, Rosalva, our coworker, invited my friend, Henry and I to chill outside her house to talk. So, back then with the privilege of being single, we had no obligations, just a few explanations to our parents who trusted us. That being said, my friend and I talked with Rosalva through the wee hours of the morning. Til we touched the theme of ghosts, paranormal and witchcraft.

Rosalva mentioned to us that right across the road on the other side there was a very old, creepy-looking tree. She said that on that tree stood two witches. I thought it was a hoax and she was trying to pull the strings on us, but no, she told to me to cross the lonely, dark road to the other side where there was an old abandoned building with that creepy looking tree on one side. So, I got close to that tree and to my surprise I remember seeing two black silhouettes the size of vultures.

I tried to scare them off thinking well maybe they were some kind of birds, but what happened next is what makes me a believer. Those two black silhouettes started to growl at me, a cold spine-chilling growl that to this day when I remember I start to shake. I got a big rock and attempted to throw it at those creatures while my friend and Rosalva yelled at me to stop. Too late, the rock struck one of the creatures. It started to talk like a hurt lady.

And then both creatures flew off the branch towards me with the intention to attack me . Thanks to my rapid reaction, I started to run across the road to the other side towards my friend and Rosalva. Those two creatures… I got to see them in the twilight of the night . They had horrible, white, long faces like a 200 year old lady and their wings were widely spread and huge. Every time they flapped, it ran through my head that they were closer to grabbing me.

By the time I reached my friend and coworker they ran inside the house and me after them. Once I got inside, my coworker slammed the door shut, we looked through the window and the flying creatures were flying around waiting for me to come out. Things calmed down inside and my friend and coworker got after me for doing that.

Feeling scared, I apologized to both of them and me wanting very bad to get the hell out of there to the car and go home. My friend and coworker told me to wait til sunrise inside til those creatures disappear or whatever. So, we stayed inside for like 4 hours til sunrise, but in those long 4 hours the creatures never gave in, they were waiting for me outside.

So after sunrise I glanced through the window and saw that the creatures were long gone. I told my friend to hurry up and get in the car to drive off . After saying goodbye to Rosalva, we took off, but in the middle of the road, we saw two young ladies walking while crossing La Homa Road to the other side and one of the young girls was bleeding from the forehead trying to hold the bleeding with the palm of her hand.

So that’s why I know it was them that transformed from animal to human in the daylight. Coincidence or not, you decide. From that experience on to this day I never again disturbed anything on tree branches. Now many years later by destiny or only God knows I travel La Homa Road daily because I live like a few blocks from where that occurrence took place years back.

And when I passed through that place after so many years I wonder what happened to those things, creatures or young ladies whatever you wanna call it . Nowadays, that old building has been demolished and the tree no longer exists . In its place there are new buildings and the coworkers house no longer exists either. In its place there’s a tire shop. Back then, I never would’ve thought, not even a bit that many years later I was gonna live close around that place. ” -Juan

Red Eyed Creature Says, “Pssst”

“So, when I was young and lived in Olmito, Texas.

 

A lot of stuff happened to me. One night, my brother in law asked me to go to the near by store to get some nachos. It was around 10 pm or so. The store is not that far away walking, maybe 5 minutes. Where I lived, it was pitch dark because only a couple of homes could afford those light posts.

Across the street from my house, there was a monte (forest) all along the dirt road until you hit the main road. (Some creepy looking trees and bushes.)

The store was the only one that had a light post. There was enough light from the houses to know which house was yours.

Anyways, I went to pick up the nachos and started to head home. Once I got away from the store, I started to hear someone doing the “pssst” sound. I stopped and turned around and I saw nothing. I started to walk again and I heard “pssst” again. I thought it might be my brother in law trying to scare me so I cussed at him and told him to quit being dumb.

I was a little scared to be honest because it was pitch dark and I kept hearing “pssst.” I started to walk faster to get home and then that’s when I started to hear a low growl and hoof-like steps following me. I wanted to run, but I felt as if I was going to fall in the dark if I ran. I walked a little faster, but the hoof-like steps kept following me at the same speed i was walking.

I finally had the guts to turn around and what I saw was horrible!! It looked like a big black dog, but with hoofs. It looked like if its hair was coarse like that of a pig and with big red glowing eyes. It was showing its teeth and fangs just like dogs and wolves do. Every step I took, it also took one and I could hear the hoofs stomp on the dirt road.

It had a low growl like if it wanted to run and attack me. All I could do was walk backwards and keep my eyes on it so it wouldn’t attack me. Just seeing the red glowing eyes gave me goose bumps. When I started getting close to my house, it disappeared like smoke. I ran inside and I guess I was pale because my mom, brother in law and sister were asking me what happened.

I told them and my mom said to stop talking trash. She did not want to believe me or she was just too afraid. My brother in law went into their room and got his gun and went outside to see if he could see something. He said he didn’t see anything, but he did hear “pssst” and some evil laughter that gave him goose bumps as well. We don’t talk about it in front of my mom because she gets scared.

Now as an adult, I get goose bumps just remembering those red glowing eyes and the low growl that was about to attack me in my teenage years. I go every year to see my dad which he still lives in that area, but he does not let me go out at night alone. It is still spooky in that area, but now there are more people living there and there are more light posts everywhere. That was one of many incidents that I encountered!” – Eddie

Could this be a skinwalker, wendigo or perhaps what is known as a “cadejo?”  Check out the link below for more information on these creatures along with similar stories like Eddie’s. https://truehorrorstoriesoftexas.com/?s=cadejo

3 Little Ghost Kids – McAllen, Texas

“I used to work at the Pizza Hut on 23 st, next to the McHi. We didn’t close till 12 or 1 at night depending on what day it was. But we would get orders that late and had to deliver.

Well the road right next to Pizza Hut is Vine st and we used that a lot to head out and come back for deliveries. One night I had to slow down because I couldn’t find a baggy with the customers money in it. I was going about 10 to 20 mph…. I found the bag and I look up , and I swear I saw three kids run in front of my head lights.

Woman Spots Headless Horseman (South Texas)

“This took place in the early 1990’s in Weslaco, Texas.

I was like 13 or 14 at the time and we were inside my parents house.  It was late and some of our cousins had gone over so we decided to play hide and seek that night.

We had been playing for about 30 minutes.  It was my turn to count and then go look for everyone, so I covered my eyes and leaned my head against the wall so I couldn’t see where they were hiding.  As soon as I finished, I said, “here I come!” and I started to look around in front of my house, but I couldn’t see anyone so I figured maybe they hid in the back of the house.

I started walking to the left of my house to go to the back and to my surprise when I got to the edge of the wall and looked towards the back, I saw the headless horseman crossing from my house to the neighbor’s house.  I got so scared I freaked out and started yelling, “That’s it! I ain’t playing anymore, come out, I’m not gonna look for you, I’m going inside!”

And I did, all shooken up still and everyone came inside and said,” what happened, why didn’t you look for us?”  I started telling them what I had seen and nobody believed me. They thought I was crazy and I had imagined things, but then my older brother came in from outside super pale from his face and everyone asked, “what’s wrong with you?” and he said, “You will never believe what I just saw outside…” and started saying he saw the same thing I did.

The weird thing was we weren’t together when we were outside… I’m 40 now, he is 44 and we still tell that story and we both know exactly what we saw… no joke.” -Veronica

Phantom Woman In White (San Juan, TX)

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!

Chupacabra sighting on HWY 186 near Port Mansfield, 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.

Port Mansfield Pier lit up at night

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.

Ghost Charro attempts to kidnap little boy (Santa Maria, TX)

One summer day many years ago in a small town named Santa Maria, a group of us boys, 5 in total including myself, were glad to be out of school. We were so bored of watching T.V. so we decided that we wanted to go for a swim out in the nearby canal.

We all got ready and were on our way. As we were on our way we had to walk past a forest-like land. All of a sudden, my friend Moose heard something calling him saying “hey”, but we simply ignored it and kept on our way. Note that four of us were 13 years of age while the 5th kid, Moose’s brother, was 6 years old. We settled on the street next to the canal while the forest-like land was still behind us -giving us shade- next to the road of the canal.
