“I’m originally from Laredo, TX; which in it’s own right has a lot of haunted history. I am now a professional story teller and I travel from school to school to tell my ghost stories, and the kids love them. The one thing I always mention at the beginning of each ghost story is that they are ALL true. All of them. Each one of my stories is a part of my past and it all started when I was 3 years old. Here’s the beginning of my continuing ghost story.
Back in 1985 my mom noticed something off about me. I was very quiet and kept to myself. At times she would come towards me to comfort me or hold me and I would scream at the top of my lungs at her attempt. My mother knew something was wrong but she couldn’t put her finger on it. After visiting a few doctors not one could give my mother an accurate diagnosis. So, I was taken home. It wasn’t until one night that my mom fed me some spaghetti and as I finished my plate I looked over to my mom and said, “It hurts here mama.” pointing to my lower right side of my stomach.

Texas is home to several eyewitness accounts when it comes to different types of flying humanoids. From the Houston Batman to the Galveston Mothman, Texas has it’s fair share of terrifying and unusual cryptids. Check out this story below from a McAllen, Texas native.
“The day I left the valley I was in the backyard of my childhood home in McAllen, Texas taking one last look at my garden when I noticed all the neighborhood dogs started barking at once. I happened to look up and see a humanoid creature that had wings like a bat, but the body and head of a human.
This creature had legs I could see hanging down and what looked like hairless grey skin. It was just hovering over my house flapping it’s wings once every few seconds. I was petrified to the point where I could do nothing but stand and stare till it flew off going south.”
This is not the only instance of people witnessing flying humanoids in Deep South Texas. Have any of you ever seen anything similar in this region of Texas or anywhere else? Leave us a comment below.
In November of 2016, a man traveling to McAllen, Texas experiences a slip in time where 4 ½ hours of his life are unaccounted for. Some theories out there involve extraterrestrial influences as the cause for these mysterious time slips. Check out his story below.
“Just traveled into McAllen, Texas. I started that stretch to McAllen from the split of Corpus Christi, estimated time of travel for 177 miles on Highway 281, time to arrive at 2 am. I averaged 85 Mph and got to McAllen at 6:30 am.
That’s 4 1/ 2 hours of lost time that can’t be mathematically calculated. Has anyone had this happen to them here, where the estimated time and the arrival time has such a huge difference?”
Could this be attributed to an extraterrestrial influence or perhaps a glitch in the matrix? What do you think? How many of you have ever experienced something like this on Highway 281 or anywhere else? Comment below.
A woman shares a story about a possible encounter with the Goat Man of Texas.
“When I was around 8 I was walking home from my school (not supposed to), but I remember walking along the road and a car pulls up. I’m looking and I see it holding a gun on the seat. As I’m looking briefly at the gun, I see goat feet. Hooves and all. This thing had a trench coat and had an abundance of fur.
I recall grabbing my friend’s hand, turning around and ran back to our school. This was in like 88. I know it sounds crazy, but I know what I saw in broad daylight. God has been beside me always because that’s not the only thing I’ve seen in my 36 years of life. I feel lucky though. If that sounds weird.” -Sabrina

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.

There have been reports about C.E. Vail Elementary and W.B. Green Junior High located in La Feria, TX being haunted by restless spirits. According to an anonymous source from ghostsofamerica.com, the reports are real.
It is no secret that the c. E. Vail is haunted. I always had my doubts about it. When I was young and one day in the 3rd grade I forgot my jacket in the gym. I went back with a friend to get it. I remember hearing a girl’s voice laughing. We were both stunned and heard footsteps coming towards us, so we began to run, and the laughing got louder, and the footsteps got faster. We ran out and never spoke about it again.
