  1. My friends and me drove by at midnight to see someone, something, anything but nothing. This was back in the late 80s.
    Still,nothing. 😒

  2. Saw him many times, turned around and went back several times, he would be gone or one time saw him walking away.

  3. Out of the 22 years I’ve lived here I’ve never seen him. BUT, I used to take shady road all the way to 107 at night when I would be going to or coming back from my fiancés apartment in Edinburg and I would have to speed all the way down that road until I would hit El Tigre. Every time you drive through there at night it feels as if there’s people just standing watching you, or it feels like someone is in your backseat.

  4. I lived there all my life and never saw anything. I would always drive home late from football games in the 2000’s and never saw anything. Even as an adult never have seen anything.
