“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

Ghosts Of Minute Maid Park

Union Station, at 501 Crawford St, Houston (Texas, USA) is now integrated into Minute Maid Park, the home of the 2017 World Series Champions, The Houston Astros!  Check out John’s story below.

“This story comes straight from beautiful downtown Houston!

I was working as the site supervisor of security at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros about 5 years ago when I realized there are people still roaming Minute Maid even after the last pitch.

When I first started, I was enthralled to be working there as I loved the Astros and had watched them growing up as a kid. I made it my personal mission to find every nook, cranny and turn of this massive ballpark and to this day when I attend games I can point out interesting things about it most people don’t know.

It was on one of these night while I was on foot patrol I had my first experience. I was in Union Station on the 4th floor in the dark, patrolling the offices to see if anyone was still working, which sometimes they were, or anything unusual in general. Now it was pitch black on this floor and I mean pitch black and i didn’t have a flashlight.

Since I was new I had no clue where the light switch was, but I was determined to make it through with only the EXIT sign lights as my guide. As I was walking through I suddenly had a feeling I wasn’t alone. I chalked it up as it being dark and my fear getting the better of me. But then over my radio I heard a whispering noise.

I couldn’t make out what it was saying but it sounded like someone was whispering through the microphone. The radios we had would beep when the mic was opened so you knew someone was about to talk and would be prepared to listen, but my radio never beeped.

So I got on the radio and asked the other guys if they had said anything, they said no. At this point I felt weird, not scared, so I decided to leave. The next day I ran into a maintenance man who has been with the Astros a very long time and is just an honest, good man. I told him about my experience and he said, “Oh, yeah, Union Station is haunted, they didn’t tell you?” He swore other security officers wouldn’t go in there at night to patrol because how creepy it was.

During my time there my guys began to tell me stories about their experiences at Union Station and one on my night crew even refused to go in there when the sun set. Then one morning I was patrolling the exterior on a golf cart when I was passing by the front of Union Station. One of my officers had to be acting as a receptionist to receive mail from 8-9 until the receptionist arrived for work and usually stood by the front main doors. It was about 8:10 am.

My officer had his back towards me, and behind him stood a fair skinned lady with black heels and black hair. This was unusual because she had her arms crossed and was just looking out the doors, at nothing really because there are pillars right in front of the doors, but as if she was waiting for someone. This was unusual due to the fact the officer in the building had been there for a few years and everyone knew him.

We were trained that if someone, such as an executive was nearby we should greet them and if they are waiting, strike up pleasant conversation. But there he stood with his back towards her. I didn’t think much of it, so I drove of. Only catching a good look of her. When he returned back to the office I asked him who the lady in the black dress was behind him and he said there was no one there with him until the receptionist arrived at 9!

I told him what I’d seen and he said he knew Union Station was haunted and thought it was a cool experience. I thought it was cool as well. There are plenty of more stories about my time at Minute Maid if you’d like to know more, this one was just my most profound and I wanted to share it with you guys!”-John S.

Father’s Spirit Protects Kids From Ouija Board

“This happened in San Antonio, TX to me and my sister back in 1972.   I was 16 and my sister was 12.  We were both sitting across each other with the Ouija board on our laps.  So, we asked it if anyone was there with us it said, “yes.”

I was the one writing what it would say.  We asked if it was a male, it said, “no.”  So then we ask what was it’s name, she said, “Kathy,” but she would not say her last name.  We asked her how she died she said in her sleep.  I asked her how old she was and it said 19 yrs old.  By this time my sister and I asked her what kind of flowers she liked she said red roses, so we asked where she was laid to rest, but she wouldn’t say.

After awhile the pointer would go into a figure 8 we ask what she was doing she said dancing.  By this time my oldest sister saw this and said, “you’re still playing with that stupid thing?!” All of a sudden, it stopped and started writing my sisters name, saying she was going to die of a heart attack and it would laugh ha ha ha.

It kept repeating it’s self while all this time I was writing it all. Then all of a sudden, the writing was not in English, it was Spanish.  My Dad got into the board.  You see my Dad passed away in 1969. He told my oldest sister, “Prieta, soy tu apa no jueges asi,” which means “Prieta, this is your father don’t play like that.”  When I read that and told my little sister, we stopped looked at the time and it was 12 o’clock midnight.

After that we never played with the Ouija board ever. Up to this day I don’t know what ever happened to that evil board. I’m 62 now and still remember it like it was yesterday. Thanks for letting me share my story.” -Alfonso

Woman Spots Headless Horseman (South Texas)

“This took place in the early 1990’s in Weslaco, Texas.

I was like 13 or 14 at the time and we were inside my parents house.  It was late and some of our cousins had gone over so we decided to play hide and seek that night.

We had been playing for about 30 minutes.  It was my turn to count and then go look for everyone, so I covered my eyes and leaned my head against the wall so I couldn’t see where they were hiding.  As soon as I finished, I said, “here I come!” and I started to look around in front of my house, but I couldn’t see anyone so I figured maybe they hid in the back of the house.

I started walking to the left of my house to go to the back and to my surprise when I got to the edge of the wall and looked towards the back, I saw the headless horseman crossing from my house to the neighbor’s house.  I got so scared I freaked out and started yelling, “That’s it! I ain’t playing anymore, come out, I’m not gonna look for you, I’m going inside!”

And I did, all shooken up still and everyone came inside and said,” what happened, why didn’t you look for us?”  I started telling them what I had seen and nobody believed me. They thought I was crazy and I had imagined things, but then my older brother came in from outside super pale from his face and everyone asked, “what’s wrong with you?” and he said, “You will never believe what I just saw outside…” and started saying he saw the same thing I did.

The weird thing was we weren’t together when we were outside… I’m 40 now, he is 44 and we still tell that story and we both know exactly what we saw… no joke.” -Veronica

The Haunting of C. E. Vail

The Haunting of C. E. Vail

In La Feria, Texas the elementary school C. E. Vail’s gym is haunted by a little girl and boy of about the ages of 10. Vail is built over the first cemetery that was there. Very uneasy things happen in the gym like for one if you put your ear to the ground and knock once, you will hear someone or something knock back three times and hear a cry for help. Also with the story of bloody Mary is big at this school. The school wasn’t only a elementary school, it used to be the old middle school and once there was a girl named Mary who had twins, which we know as baby pink and baby blue. The twins were murder by their mother (they drowned). They haunted the first grade wing’s bathroom. If you go to the last stall in the either bathroom and knock on the wall three times, the light will flicker and they will show
