“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

Ghosts Of Minute Maid Park

Union Station, at 501 Crawford St, Houston (Texas, USA) is now integrated into Minute Maid Park, the home of the 2017 World Series Champions, The Houston Astros!  Check out John’s story below.

“This story comes straight from beautiful downtown Houston!

I was working as the site supervisor of security at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros about 5 years ago when I realized there are people still roaming Minute Maid even after the last pitch.

When I first started, I was enthralled to be working there as I loved the Astros and had watched them growing up as a kid. I made it my personal mission to find every nook, cranny and turn of this massive ballpark and to this day when I attend games I can point out interesting things about it most people don’t know.

It was on one of these night while I was on foot patrol I had my first experience. I was in Union Station on the 4th floor in the dark, patrolling the offices to see if anyone was still working, which sometimes they were, or anything unusual in general. Now it was pitch black on this floor and I mean pitch black and i didn’t have a flashlight.

Since I was new I had no clue where the light switch was, but I was determined to make it through with only the EXIT sign lights as my guide. As I was walking through I suddenly had a feeling I wasn’t alone. I chalked it up as it being dark and my fear getting the better of me. But then over my radio I heard a whispering noise.

I couldn’t make out what it was saying but it sounded like someone was whispering through the microphone. The radios we had would beep when the mic was opened so you knew someone was about to talk and would be prepared to listen, but my radio never beeped.

So I got on the radio and asked the other guys if they had said anything, they said no. At this point I felt weird, not scared, so I decided to leave. The next day I ran into a maintenance man who has been with the Astros a very long time and is just an honest, good man. I told him about my experience and he said, “Oh, yeah, Union Station is haunted, they didn’t tell you?” He swore other security officers wouldn’t go in there at night to patrol because how creepy it was.

During my time there my guys began to tell me stories about their experiences at Union Station and one on my night crew even refused to go in there when the sun set. Then one morning I was patrolling the exterior on a golf cart when I was passing by the front of Union Station. One of my officers had to be acting as a receptionist to receive mail from 8-9 until the receptionist arrived for work and usually stood by the front main doors. It was about 8:10 am.

My officer had his back towards me, and behind him stood a fair skinned lady with black heels and black hair. This was unusual because she had her arms crossed and was just looking out the doors, at nothing really because there are pillars right in front of the doors, but as if she was waiting for someone. This was unusual due to the fact the officer in the building had been there for a few years and everyone knew him.

We were trained that if someone, such as an executive was nearby we should greet them and if they are waiting, strike up pleasant conversation. But there he stood with his back towards her. I didn’t think much of it, so I drove of. Only catching a good look of her. When he returned back to the office I asked him who the lady in the black dress was behind him and he said there was no one there with him until the receptionist arrived at 9!

I told him what I’d seen and he said he knew Union Station was haunted and thought it was a cool experience. I thought it was cool as well. There are plenty of more stories about my time at Minute Maid if you’d like to know more, this one was just my most profound and I wanted to share it with you guys!”-John S.

Woman Witnesses Furry Humanoid Creature Walking On All Fours (Houston Area)

This is not the first report of humanoids in East Texas.  Check out Jacqueline’s story.

“I was on my way back from visiting my father in Houston, and I had stayed pretty late.  It usually takes me about an hour and 45 min to drive home because I live to the north of Houston off of I-69 in Coldspring, TX.

I was about 25 min from home , I’d made the turn onto road 222 that takes you past Lake Livingston Dam.

Lake Livingston Dam

It was around 10:00 pm and this long stretch of road is covered on all sides by woods with the occasional ranch house an or farm. There are no lights but 1 passing through there.

I was past that light in total darkness with only my headlights shining. I saw something up ahead and slowed down. It was a furry creature on all fours crossing the road. I’ll never forget the way it felt, the hair on my arms are standing up and I get goosebumps just remembering.

It looked like the boy from the jungle book crossing the road with the hind part of the body higher than the front.

It stopped just on the other side of my truck passing a few feet in front of my truck. It was dark grey and black and it didn’t seem to have a face or maybe it just had too much hair.

It was too big to be a dog or any animal. I still don’t know what it was, all I know is that I drove off speeding away looking back into my rear view mirror hoping it wasn’t following me home. I locked up and stayed close to my rifle the whole night. And to this day driving through that stretch of road I hope I never see that creature again.” -Jacqueline

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

Pterodactyl-Like Humanoid Spotted Near Three Rivers

Here is another unusual and creepy story involving a flying humanoid in Texas.  Check it out.

“It was 1999 or 2000… sorry can’t remember the exact year. I was heading South on IH37 either just north or south of Three Rivers between San Antonio and Corpus Christi.

It was late, close to 12 or 1 am and that’s when it flew over the top of my car. A large white humanoid figure with wings. Not a crane, or goose, or swan, or bird of prey…but a humanoid figure with skin wings. I remember doing about 65 mph and it came from the right rear and crossed my driving line at about 45 degrees… overtaking me in speed by maybe 5-10 mph.

As it crossed over me it was only 10 or so feet above the roof of my vehicle. Wingspan was probably 6-8 feet and the skin was white. The wings looked to be constructed/shaped more like you would expect to see on a bat or pterodactyl but with a solidly defined human arms on the leading edge.

There were definitely human legs trailing behind it and the torso was built like a human. Because it came from behind, I did not see a face. But, looking back I’m glad I didn’t. This is NOT a casual story. I saw this and will never forget it as long as I live.” -C.M.H

Here is a related story sent in by an anonymous source: “I live in Arlington Texas and about 11 years ago we were traveling north on highway 360 but south of I20. It was sometime after midnight and my husband, myself and a friend of ours witnessed what seemed to look like a huge bat like creature fly just in front and overhead our vehicle. The reason we noticed it so clear is the moon was so bright that night that you could clearly see it had a wing span of atleast 6 Feet wide. Since then we’ve been through there several times but haven’t come across the creature again.”

Your Friendly Neighborhood Cat Man

According to the witness, this incident occurred in the beginning of April in the city of San Marcos, TX.

“I drive the same route almost everyday to drop off our daughter at her babysitter’s house on my way to work. I see the same things and people in her neighborhood on a daily basis. Usually I catch sight of an old lady going for her daily walk, an older gentleman working on his lawn, and sometimes, an unusually dressed woman, that is an owner of an equally conspicuous home on an otherwise sleepy drive.

She is also the owner of a black cat and dog and one of the oddest first memories of her was during a nasty storm a few years ago. I remember seeing her standing outside in this torrential rain storm dressed like Walter Mercado with her two pets unfazed by the downpour.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago and I’m doing our usual drop off. I was backing out of the driveway when I saw the lady’s cat a little up the road from the driveway. The cat can be a bit of a jerk and lay in the middle of the road like he owns it so I prepared well in advance to slow down and go around him like I have done from time to time over the years.

I’m staring at the cat when he suddenly began to blur while everything else in my line of sight remained clear.

A split second later I see a tall lanky stranger with long black hair standing exactly where the cat was. He proceeded to casually cross the road towards an alley and vanish from my sight as I continued driving. I didn’t get any bad vibes from him and haven’t seen him nor the cat since this curious incident occurred. I added an update. As of late I haven’t seen the cat at all.” -SIRENATX

Creepy 3 FT Tall Creature With Sharp Teeth Spotted On Highway 18 (Monahans, TX)

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.

Image result for monahans texas

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.”

Image result for map of highway 18 along  and Fort Stockton

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.”

Sincerely: Michael A.

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
