Hello, I would like to share that I used to live on North Valverde Road and Sioux Road in Donna, Texas. I was coming home from a party driving down Valverde Road with my car’s sunroof open and it must have been 1 or 2 am. Well as I am turning into Sioux Road I hear scratching noises. I glance up at my sunroof and see a lechuza flying over my car and trying to get in and making a screeching noise.
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.
This story is about my father and his encounter with a flying being / humanoid in the South Texas county of Hidalgo. He worked for the sheriff’s department for a number of years.
My father has investigated over 14 homicides, he has had his fair share of experience and has “been around” as they say. Anyway, this is the story he would tell my family and I, told from my father’s POV :
“A late December night.. while driving down the old Military highway after being called by a citizen saying his chickens had been being slaughtered more and more every day, I couldn’t help but notice how dark La Lomita looked as I pulled closer and closer to the old asylum, near where the man lived who called to make a report.
As I arrived and got down from my unit, the man tells me he has heard weird sounding noises throughout the night and he wakes up to tools missing and his chickens being killed and eaten, with nothing but heads and feathers being left behind.

In 1977 I was a senior at Frenship High School in Wolfforth Texas.
I rode a dirt bike behind where I lived and would run alongside a railroad track to get to a friend’s house and hang out.
This story takes place in Donna, TX. The year was 1996. Some friends and I had a basketball game that night. We returned to Donna around midnight. I had a car, so I was the “taxi.” We left Donna High School toward Victoria Rd. We turned left and proceeded toward the overpass. When we were at the highest point of the overpass, you could see a lady in black standing on the side of the road. She was at the very end of the overpass.
360 of highest point of overpass, (sighting took place at the end of overpass)
After reading this story, it seems to be related to the phenomena known as “Astral Projection.”
According to wikipedia, “Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out of body experience (OBE), a supposed form of telepathy, that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an “astral body” that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside of it throughout the universe.”

“All these happened in the same house.
OK, I was in my teens, I remember this was during my high school days. I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a little boy standing over me. I asked, “who are you?” He answered, “Jack!” (Yea, I know, I named my son Jack also.)
Then he like jumped INTO me. I felt my body walk to my parents room and stand there in front of their bed. My mom woke up scared asking who I was. Like she didn’t see me, she saw someone else. All that could come out of my mouth was the name Jack although I kept trying to say, “get out.”
Next thing I remember, I plopped down on my bed, opened my eyes and said out loud “Jack!” My body was halfway off the bed when I woke up. I then went to wake my mom to ask if I was just there, she said no. I told her what happened, she tried telling me it was just a dream. She took me back to my room, I looked at the reflection on my TV and saw a little boy standing in the hallway leaning against the wall. I kept telling my mom he was there. She didn’t see him. Only I could.
Another event was my dad waking up to a noise thinking it was either my sister or I playing. He said he saw a little boy throwing a ball against the wall.
This was around Christmas time. I remember all the decorations being up in the house. My sister and I were home alone. We were in the living room watching TV. Then it went snowy. We tried every button on the remote but nothing worked, even buttons on the TV.
Then the TV volume went up and down and all the way up and turned off on its own. We were freaking out. We went to my room, then the train we had in our little Christmas village turned on and starting moving. We were too scared to go see why. It went around a few times before turning off.
Then I looked in the hallway and saw a tall transparent man with a long coat and hat and suitcase. He disappeared before I shut the door. We called my grandpa that lived an hour away, he came for us right away. We didn’t leave my room till he got there.
A lot of bad things happened to our family while at that house, but those are the paranormal parts I remember.”-Vanessa Irino

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
This story was sent in by a South Texas man claiming to have seen a vortex or wormhole while driving. Check it out.
“Nearly impossible to realize, but I have seen the object that I believe to be a time vortex in the shape of a black sphere. It happened on business 83 heading towards La Feria from Mercedes.
By what I remember, is that upon passing Rabb Road, there was this dark sphere on the passing lane. As I was passing this sphere, I looked into it and saw something I have never seen.
The best way I can tell you how it looked is to see the movie Interstellar where the space crew members come to see a wormhole near Saturn. It looked exactly like that wormhole in the movie. I drove passed it a quarter mile and decided to go back. But upon approaching the area, it had disappeared.
You don’t have to take my word for it there was another person with me and also saw what I had seen and there was another car passing the area and literally riding on their brakes as they passed it. It was an SUV. I would also like to report that the area around this place was misty like a fogyish atmosphere.
Time was 7:35 pm on my way back from buying some pizza at a near by town. If anyone wants more info on this subject don’t hesitate to contact me whether you are a government entity or just privately doing research on this subject. (PlayHard74@icloud.com)
I feel that someone can learn or gain something out of this. I can also get the other person who was riding with me to vouch for me. As for the SUV, well, I could not catch up with it because that car was speeding while it turned on Rabb Road.” -Alex
This story takes place in Rio Grande City, TX. Check it out.
“This was a couple of years back. I had this habit of staying up until very late hours of the night. On one particular night, I was doing the usual, listening to my earphones under the tree outside my house, it was around 3 am there was a full moon so it wasn’t very dark. All of a sudden i started to get goosebumps out of nowhere, and i began to get the sense that i was being watched so I just stood up and quickly checked behind me …nothing.
Everything was completely silent, you could not hear any sound whatsoever. Weird, but not unusual. Suddenly, I started to here wings flapping it sounded loud and as I look up I see a man flying with giant bat-like wings.
I feel my blood drop and I froze and as I get back into my senses, I take out my phone to try to get a picture, but it was too dark. I watched as it slowly flew away, I began to realize that this thing I just saw actually exists. This humanoid creature roams our town late at night watching us.” -Jessica Herrera
Here’s a video of a flying humanoid in Dallas, TX
3 AM is known as the “Witching Hour” as it has been told throughout history that the vale between the supernatural and the living is at its thinnest, therefore leaving it more susceptible to paranormal/demonic activity. Check out what Cindy had to say about a creepy experience involving a flying creature she witnessed at 3 AM.
“I used to live in a condo in McAllen back in 2013. It was a little after 3 AM when my dog barked to let her out for her business. I always go out with her and I remember seeing something huge and black fly nearby and it landed on a nearby small electric pole.
At that point I was frozen and didn’t know what to do. I was too scared to grab my dog and run back in thinking I’d cause it to go after us, so I tried to act like I wasn’t scared. It was all black and somewhat looked like a big black coat. I had never seen such a thing that part of me felt like it was just some bad evil thing.
It then flew away with some huge black wings. It wasn’t close enough for me to tell what kind of a face it was. Till this day I have no clue and wonder if it was a vulture but part of me thinks it had to have been something else. Whatever it was freaked me out and I still remember till this day.” -Cindy
