This story is about my father and his encounter with a flying being / humanoid in the South Texas county of Hidalgo. He worked for the sheriff’s department for a number of years.
My father has investigated over 14 homicides, he has had his fair share of experience and has “been around” as they say. Anyway, this is the story he would tell my family and I, told from my father’s POV :
“A late December night.. while driving down the old Military highway after being called by a citizen saying his chickens had been being slaughtered more and more every day, I couldn’t help but notice how dark La Lomita looked as I pulled closer and closer to the old asylum, near where the man lived who called to make a report.
As I arrived and got down from my unit, the man tells me he has heard weird sounding noises throughout the night and he wakes up to tools missing and his chickens being killed and eaten, with nothing but heads and feathers being left behind.
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.

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.

We like to think of True Horror Stories of Texas as a place where everyone has an opportunity to tell their stories. The story you’re about to hear is a perfect example of this. They took the time to really express what they actually experienced growing up. This took place in Edinburg, Texas, it’s a look into a child’s home that was filled with paranormal activity. If you have a story like this you can share it here.
I lived at 308 W. McIntyre, grew up there until I was 18. Since before I was born stuff would happen there. Door knobs would violently turn like someone was trying to open the door, loud footsteps upstairs when no one else was home, to sounds of moving furniture upstairs.
“Hello, my name is Cris and I also witnessed a flying humanoid. I clearly saw it could have been a Witch. It was early, around 9 pm, my children and I were driving to my brother’s house on North Valverde and Minnesota in North Donna, TX when I turned East on Minnesota Rd. About half a mile into, here comes a figure in rags flying next to my window on the driver’s side.
This is the location according to the description Continue reading Chased By A Witch (Donna, TX)→
“This happened between the ages of 5-7 (1987-1989) years old, while living in Edinburg, TX, off Sugar Road and Wendy Drive by a canal.

I had always heard the story of the crying lady, where she had drowned her kids in the canal because she couldn’t take care of them, or she was a battered wife and didn’t want them to be hurt anymore, or she was just plain old mentally unstable. I didn’t believe the story because growing up in the Valley, you hear tons of scary stories.
This next creepy story seems to be a classic case of Brujeria (Latin American Witchcraft).
“I am a very true believer in the Lord, but we always have to think this way, ” if there is good, there is BAD.” This all happened a few months ago about in November. I have a friend, out of nowhere she started getting ill and Doctors could not find anything that was causing for her to have a bloated stomach and be in the ICU dying. They sent her to Houston and was there for another month in ICU and they couldn’t find anything either. So, when they sent her back down to McAllen, TX she was in the ICU for 2 days before they would disconnect her from artificial life, her husband decided to go to a curandera in Weslaco. I’m talking about a curandera, (ONE WHO CURES BAD) not a bruja (witch).
This has to be one of the best stories we’ve received! Taking place in Olmito, TX. Check it out.
“From the time I was 16 until I was 19 (mid 90’s) I had a job exercising horses at a ranch in Olmito, TX just a few miles from Rancho Viejo.
After I finished exercising all the horses, there was a horse I was allowed to ride just for fun. I would often ride the horse on the dirt roads that interlaced the fields out by the ranch where the horses were kept.
