“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

Red Eyed Creature Says, “Pssst”

“So, when I was young and lived in Olmito, Texas.

 

A lot of stuff happened to me. One night, my brother in law asked me to go to the near by store to get some nachos. It was around 10 pm or so. The store is not that far away walking, maybe 5 minutes. Where I lived, it was pitch dark because only a couple of homes could afford those light posts.

Across the street from my house, there was a monte (forest) all along the dirt road until you hit the main road. (Some creepy looking trees and bushes.)

The store was the only one that had a light post. There was enough light from the houses to know which house was yours.

Anyways, I went to pick up the nachos and started to head home. Once I got away from the store, I started to hear someone doing the “pssst” sound. I stopped and turned around and I saw nothing. I started to walk again and I heard “pssst” again. I thought it might be my brother in law trying to scare me so I cussed at him and told him to quit being dumb.

I was a little scared to be honest because it was pitch dark and I kept hearing “pssst.” I started to walk faster to get home and then that’s when I started to hear a low growl and hoof-like steps following me. I wanted to run, but I felt as if I was going to fall in the dark if I ran. I walked a little faster, but the hoof-like steps kept following me at the same speed i was walking.

I finally had the guts to turn around and what I saw was horrible!! It looked like a big black dog, but with hoofs. It looked like if its hair was coarse like that of a pig and with big red glowing eyes. It was showing its teeth and fangs just like dogs and wolves do. Every step I took, it also took one and I could hear the hoofs stomp on the dirt road.

It had a low growl like if it wanted to run and attack me. All I could do was walk backwards and keep my eyes on it so it wouldn’t attack me. Just seeing the red glowing eyes gave me goose bumps. When I started getting close to my house, it disappeared like smoke. I ran inside and I guess I was pale because my mom, brother in law and sister were asking me what happened.

I told them and my mom said to stop talking trash. She did not want to believe me or she was just too afraid. My brother in law went into their room and got his gun and went outside to see if he could see something. He said he didn’t see anything, but he did hear “pssst” and some evil laughter that gave him goose bumps as well. We don’t talk about it in front of my mom because she gets scared.

Now as an adult, I get goose bumps just remembering those red glowing eyes and the low growl that was about to attack me in my teenage years. I go every year to see my dad which he still lives in that area, but he does not let me go out at night alone. It is still spooky in that area, but now there are more people living there and there are more light posts everywhere. That was one of many incidents that I encountered!” – Eddie

Could this be a skinwalker, wendigo or perhaps what is known as a “cadejo?”  Check out the link below for more information on these creatures along with similar stories like Eddie’s. https://truehorrorstoriesoftexas.com/?s=cadejo

Woman Witnesses Furry Humanoid Creature Walking On All Fours (Houston Area)

This is not the first report of humanoids in East Texas.  Check out Jacqueline’s story.

“I was on my way back from visiting my father in Houston, and I had stayed pretty late.  It usually takes me about an hour and 45 min to drive home because I live to the north of Houston off of I-69 in Coldspring, TX.

I was about 25 min from home , I’d made the turn onto road 222 that takes you past Lake Livingston Dam.

Lake Livingston Dam

It was around 10:00 pm and this long stretch of road is covered on all sides by woods with the occasional ranch house an or farm. There are no lights but 1 passing through there.

I was past that light in total darkness with only my headlights shining. I saw something up ahead and slowed down. It was a furry creature on all fours crossing the road. I’ll never forget the way it felt, the hair on my arms are standing up and I get goosebumps just remembering.

It looked like the boy from the jungle book crossing the road with the hind part of the body higher than the front.

It stopped just on the other side of my truck passing a few feet in front of my truck. It was dark grey and black and it didn’t seem to have a face or maybe it just had too much hair.

It was too big to be a dog or any animal. I still don’t know what it was, all I know is that I drove off speeding away looking back into my rear view mirror hoping it wasn’t following me home. I locked up and stayed close to my rifle the whole night. And to this day driving through that stretch of road I hope I never see that creature again.” -Jacqueline

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.”
