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.
This heart touching story comes to us from a Texas woman after she returned from a trip to Reynosa, Mexico along the Texas-Mexico border.
“One afternoon, my dad and I were crossing the Reynosa-Hidalgo Bridge after getting some medication in Reynosa for my dad’s flu. As we were waiting in line, we noticed the car next to us was overheating and spilling all the water from the radiator.
The Rio Grande Valley has always had a rich history of Mexican Folklore and along with that comes legends such as La Llorona but such legends are usually spawned out of truth. We have had several sightings reported about La Llorona. As the story goes, though several variations exist, the most basic story tells of a woman who drowned her children in a river as a means of revenge because her husband left her for a younger woman.
She now wanders, searching for her drowned offspring. She constantly weeps, hence her name “La Llorona.”
“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
“I have an experience I had back in 2012 at my apartment on 11th St. in McAllen, TX. One cold December evening, I left to go visit my father at a nursing home, while walking towards the apt exit next to the pool area, there’s a boy about 7 yrs. old wearing a square short sleeve shirt and jeans. The night was a little cold and lightly raining. The boy was facing towards the pool and I just left, but I kept thinking to myself, what a little boy would be doing alone outside.
The neighborhood was quiet and no one was outside because of the cold weather and light rain, so I just left. When I got back from visiting my dad, I saw the boy standing facing the apt office window. He was just still, I asked him, “are you ok?” He turned and looked at me and said, “I wanna go there.”
He pointed to the east side of the apt. I said, “where do you live?” and he kept pointing to the east side, so I said, “go in to your house.” So, he just started walking toward an empty apt, opened the door and went in, but that apt was empty and I waited for him to get inside. The apt looked dark, but he went inside and the door just closed by itself.
I felt chills cause the boy was outside by himself when I left and he was also at the same place when I got back about 2 hrs later. Then, when I told a friend of mine who lived at the apts about the boy, she said that years back a little boy drowned there in the pool.”-Irma
There seems to be an up-rise in stories coming in about shadow people. A shadow person is exactly what it sounds like a dark shadow like figure, sometimes with a hat on.

“In Early February of 2017, I was traveling East bound on Jasmine Street in McAllen, TX with my wife when I happened to notice something incredibly creepy in the backyard of a home located on the North side of the street.
Around 8:30pm, standing in the backyard was the dark figure of a man planking/leaning against the side of the garage of the home in question.
This story comes to us from a man in South Texas who looked at La Llorona dead in the eyes. This story takes place right along the Rio Grande River. We have another story that took place along the same river about 45 miles East, you can read it here. If you have seen or heard La Llorona, we would love to hear about it, you can share it with the community here.
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.
Here’s a story sent in from South Texas (McAllen). This isn’t the first story we’ve had of floating orbs from that region. Click here to read a similar story from Lyford, Texas. The following story has sound associated with it though, very strange. If you have a story about these strange floating orbs, we would love to hear it. Send it in to us here.
One early morning, about 10 years ago, I was hanging out with a buddy at my apt. Actually, it was more like a guest house as it was located in the back of my best friend’s older brother’s house. My buddy and I were watching television late one evening in the living room and I had the front door open to let fresh air in. As we watched television, he suddenly freaked out and said he just saw a figure of a man walk by the door outside and then disappear. We went outside to confirm and saw nothing. Of course, the first thing I did was call him crazy, accuse him of just being drunk and dismissed the whole thing.
Then, about 2 weeks later we were hanging out again watching T.V. with the door open one early morning around 2:45 am when we heard what sounded like a grown 250 pound man stomping extremely hard through the yard and onto the small garden located just outside the front door.
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.
