“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

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

Could this be some kind of  skinwalker, witch or shapeshifter?  Leave us a comment below.

Childhood Witchcraft And Voodoo Dolls Result In Demonic Haunting As An Adult (Fort Worth, TX)

In September of 2017 we received a story on our True Horror Stories of Texas Facebook group page from a Forth Worth, TX woman. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1434190123549921/

Check it out…

“I have a real problem. When I was little I did witchcraft and played with voodoo dolls. My parents didn’t pay any attention. I didn’t believe in God and thought I was a witch. I live in the house I grew up and now I believe in Jesus and things are going haywire. I was even scratched last night. I hear footsteps my name called all kinds of things.”

We responded, “Scratches are often associated with demonic haunting or attempted possessions. This might not be true in your case, but it is an interesting theory.”

She replied, “No it’s true already I’m aware of it. They want me. I just got off the phone with my friend on speaker and she said that she heard a man’s voice talking in the background and there’s no one here but me.”- Juliet

We have tried to follow up with her, but she hasn’t responded.  We hope she’s alright.  Here are the pictures she sent in.  Have any of you ever experienced anything like this?

Donna woman grows accustomed to witches flying overhead

I have lived in Donna, Texas since I was small. When I was around 8 even 10, I would see witches flying outside my house. It was not a creepy thing at all, I got so used to it because it was every full moon or every other day .

Over the years it became less of me seeing them flying. Until I was 14 … there used to be a big tree in front of where I lived. It was huge and pretty and there was a house next to it, like every normal day around 4 am(because school buses used to pass that early back then) my neighbors would always be standing there before me until one morning I heard everyone scream and running back home. They saw something flying out of the tree, they described it like a movie. For a while no one would wait outside anymore.
