This was sent in by another fan of THSOT. A man is plagued by a Shadow Person near San Antonio, TX
“I had an uncle who had a drinking problem. He would come home almost every night from the bar extremely drunk, and argue with his wife. One night after leaving the bar he got into his vehicle, and as he looked into his rear-view mirror he noticed a black figure (wearing a hat) already sitting in the back seat. Because he already wasn’t in his right mind he didn’t pay much attention to it.

A man working at a Toys R Us in McAllen, TX shares a frightening story about the store location.
“I’ve actually waited to share one of my toys r us stories.
Well I did the graphics and promotions for the store so I had a little office behind the children’s clothes. In the room there are stairs to a second level of the store where we keep the extra shelves. I was usually the only one besides managers allowed back there. Sometimes I would hear foot steps and things shuffling around right above my office. I would go upstairs to check and there around be no one there, but things felt moved around.

A man travelling through Texas recounts the time he saw a horrifying creature on the road.
“Okay, I have a story about a Skinwalker, a Sin-Eater, and a story about both together at the same time. I’ll start with the Skinwalker and maybe do the other two later on.
It was 1995, I had just graduated High School, an old friend who I haven’t talked to in 7 years now and I were hanging out and I said, “Let’s go to New Orleans.” And we did. We had $140 between us and back then that was more than enough. We made it New Orleans, almost died from culture shock, and turned around and headed to Magnolia, MS to get some sleep. We stayed at Magnolia Inn, it was a shit hole, but it was nice and cool. It was May or June, in south MS; cool was the only adjective that mattered. We stayed up that night playing poker, drinking Gordon’s vodka, and talking about who knows what. Probably girls, college, and college girls. At some point I said, “Ever been to Texas?” “Nope.” “Pack your bag and let’s roll.” We had a road atlas; Marshall, TX was right across the border from Shreveport.

Here’s a doppelgänger story from San Antonio, TX
“I was staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s house for the weekend. Upon entrance to the house, there is a small room. To the right is an entrance to the living room, while there is an entrance to the kitchen across from it. The kitchen has the only door to the backyard within it. If you look straight from the front door, there is a set of wooden ladders. After about 10 steps up, the stairs stop and continue to the left. If you follow to the left, you will come to a hallway after passing some more steps. To the left side of the hallway is the master bedroom and bathroom and on the right side is my cousin Drina’s room and the guestroom (where I stayed over). However, if you follow to the right, there is a wall-sized mirror that I particularly dislike.

Ouija Board to Blame for Murder
Lisa Baca Regular contributor, Strange Times U.S.A
A peculiar criminal defense is making its way around the internet, and while the insanity plea is nothing new, the specifics of this unique case are virtually unheard of.
Last month a Texas teen was allegedly stabbed in the abdomen by his long-time friend, a 15-year-old whom he attended high school with. The near fatal wound caused intestinal lacerations, leaving the victim to recover in the intensive care unit of his local hospital for three days.
Police were shocked to find out the details of the attack, one factor in particular that included a Ouija Board. The ever-so-popular board game has made its way into American pop-culture throughout the years, and is primarily used in the same manner as ghost stories around campfires; to create an atmosphere of fear.

“At night in South Texas, especially under a big moon, things start moving.
Deer begin grazing, coarse-haired feral hogs emerge from the brush to steal corn from game feeders on the big ranches, five-foot rattlesnakes slide from their lair, the sensors on their arrowhead-shaped heads looking for warm meat. And sometimes, an owl spreads its wide wings and flies from its roost looking for prey.
