  • Bigfoot Sightings 2019: Evidence of the Elusive Cryptid

    February 22, 2019
    Photo of Bigfoot Sightings 2019: Evidence of the Elusive Cryptid

    New Bigfoot sightings are reported every month, stories of hairy bipedal humanoids lurking in forests around the world, and yet eluding definitive proof of their existence. The nature of these alleged creatures remains a mystery, but one thing is certain: A Bigfoot hunter’s job is never over.

    Throughout 2019, I updated this page with the latest Bigfoot sightings, news, and other stories that happened to jump out at me.

    Latest Bigfoot Sightings In 2019

    Strange Figures Near Oregon Road

    In November, an individual phoned the Oregon State Police to report the sighting of a large humanoid figure standing near I-84’s Hood River Exit 64 A. It was a creature, said the witness, that was much “too big to be a bear,” and that appeared to be walking upright.

    Later, the Umatilla / Morrow County Watch Facebook page shared a screenshot from a traffic cam that happened to be on that very road. It seemed to reveal that a large, looming figure was indeed lingering by the road’s guard rail.

    However, in the stark light of day, it became clear that the creature was actually a very large bush.

    Bigfoot Crosses Street in Littleton, North Carolina

    North Carolina has proven to be a hotspot for Bigfoot sightings this year (with multiple entries on this very list). In early November, another sighting occurred when a woman in Littleton, North Carolina allegedly saw Bigfoot crossing an intersection.

    She told her tale to investigator Stephen Barcelo, who uploaded a short interview to YouTube. The woman, Eboni Byrd, said the relatively large creature stood up and began “walking ape-like.” She was in a hurry, so didn’t fully comprehend what she had seen until she turned the corner.

    “I was like ‘wait a minute, that was Bigfoot,'” she said, “It was not a human.” The incident happened on November 1 at about 4:40 p.m.

    Byrd later went back to the scene of the encounter, but the possible Bigfoot was nowhere to be found.

    Possible Bigfoot Screams in Canadian Woods

    YouTuber Stargell Blackstar uploaded footage on October 3, 2019 that contains what seems to be the faint sound of “strange” screams he managed to record that same day. As he tells it, he, his wife, and his grandson were out grouse hunting “about 45km from Sioux Lookout Ontario Canada.” The screams lasted about five minutes. The incident occurred at 6:50 p.m. CST.

    Some believe the screaming is that of a “monster,” or perhaps even Bigfoot. One commenter even wonders if some of the alleged screams we hear in forests could be “a female bigfoot giving birth.”

    On the other hand, more than a few claim it is possibly a wolf in distress.

    Strange Noises and Possible Bigfoot In North Carolina

    Image: Bigfoot 911

    In September, Bigfoot 911, a Bigfoot investigation group hailing from North Carolina, released the above night vision photo of what they claim might be Bigfoot within a forest at Lake James.

    According to the group’s founder John Bruner, he and three other team members took a boat out onto the lake on September 28, 2019 and headed for a nearby cove. According to The McDowell News, there had been reports of howling in the area around the lake, specifically the “Linville side.”

    When Bruner and his team arrived, they cut the boat’s engine and floated quietly, after which they heard movement, followed by “wood knocks.” They then scanned the area with night vision cameras, which is when they noticed the dark figure standing among the trees of the forest.

    By estimation, the creature stood roughly seven-and-a-half-feet tall. It was calm and nonthreatening, and made no noise. However, the knocking sounds continued, leading Bigfoot 911 to believe there may have been more than a single Bigfoot in the area, and that they were perhaps communicating with each other.

    The group captured a total of 121 images. The sighting itself lasted about five minutes before the creature vanished into the forest, while the strange noises continued for 45 minutes afterward.

    Baby Bigfoot Sighting In Backyard (Location Unknown)

    Image: YouTube

    On September 23, YouTube channel NvTv shared footage of an alleged “baby sasquatch.” The video was captured by a boy in his backyard and, while blurry, it appears to show a very small, dark humanoid figure among the trees and bushes of a nearby wooded area. At 1:20, the footage is replayed zoomed in. The location of the footage, however, is unknown.

    “There it is, look, do you see that?” the boy says rather nonchalantly in the video, “That’s crazy. There is a sasquatch.”

    Some viewers believe the video is simply of too poor quality to make anything out, while others suggest the figure may be of a bear cub or some other animal. At least a few posit that there may be a family of Bigfeet lurking in the bushes.

    NvTv, meanwhile, describes the potential creature as “something dark and small…moving quickly on two legs like a monkey.”

    Possible Young Sasquatch Sighting In New Jersey

    A report filed with the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) in August details a possible Sasquatch sighting in Burlington County, New Jersey.

    The sighting occurred in June, as the witness was traveling on Route 563 at 6:40 p.m., near the Franklin Parker Preserve. A figure appeared on the ground near the left side of the road, which the witness first mistook for a ground hog. However, it then stood up on two legs, reaching an approximate height of three and a half feet tall.

    The witness passed by the creature, but then turned around to investigate. The creature was still near the road, and according to the witness “looked like a cross between Curious George and the character Chaka from the Land of the Lost.” While the creature was covered in golden brown fur, its face and hands were bare. The witness also noted that its eyes were simply brown, with no white areas.

    After the very brief encounter, the unidentified creature ran off with incredible speed, diving behind a bush and out of view.

    During a follow-up investigation by BFRO’s Eric Spinner and other members, they recreated the encounter and took measurements, finding that the alleged creature likely would have been closer to four feet in height as it appeared to the witness.

    Bigfoot Throws Rocks in Hickory, North Carolina

    Bigfoot hunter Doug Teague believes he may have spotted a Bigfoot while out recovering trail cameras in McDowell County, North Carolina in mid-August.

    As he told the Morganton News Herald, Teague initially heard what he thought was simply the tell-tale tapping of a nearby woodpecker, but then something threw a rock at him.

    When he turned to look, he noticed a dark figure lurking in the trees not too far from him. He managed to capture a photo, which he shared on his Facebook page, stating, “I normally don’t post my sightings but today was exciting. I got some of the best video and vocals I have ever got.”

    He also managed to capture a short video, which includes footage of possible Bigfoot tracks in the area.

    Some believe what Teague saw was nothing but a bear. However, aside from the fact that the “something” he witnessed threw rocks, Teague also feels the reaction of his dog, Daisy, may provide another clue. He says Daisy will approach bears, but in this case she “was going nuts but staying close to me.”

    North Carolina Woman Has Bigfoot Neighbors

    Vicki Cook of Shelby, North Carolina claims Bigfoot lives in the woods near her home, according to a report by WCNC. Her evidence includes “grainy” home video footage, as well as large footprints. She also claims to have had personal sightings of the cryptid, encounters that began in March 2019.

    Cook has described the creature as very tall, huge even:

    “It was on two legs. It was bipedal. The hair on the head on the body was real stringy and matted-looking.”

    – Vicki Cook

    Cook claims many different sets of footprints have been found near her property, with differing sizes. This may indicate an entire family of Bigfoot (Bigfeet?). Curiously enough, she’s also been leaving food out for them, and they seem to prefer sweet things, like candy and peanut butter.

    Two Mysterious Bigfoot Sightings On Roads In Georgia

    In May, two sightings occurred within the span of one week in Northern Georgia. On May 20, a nearly 8-foot-tall bipedal creature was reported between Ellijay and Blue Ridge at 8:30 p.m, near a small community known as Cherry Log. A second sighting was reported near Clayton, Georgia in the early morning hours of May 27.

    The two locations are about 75 miles away from each other, though both witnesses described the towering creatures as dark in color, leading some to wonder if the sightings are related.

    Edward Lee, the man who spotted the creature at Cherry Log, described it as hairy with very long arms like a primate. He estimated that it stood about 7 to 8-feet tall. Notably, it also had a pointed head.

    Lee had been driving down the highway when he saw the potential cryptid loitering just off the road. The creature then wandered back into the woods, and seemingly vanished. Two sketches of the creature can be seen at the Expedition: Bigfoot Facebook page, where the report initially appeared.

    After seeing that first report, another witness came forward with their own sighting, this one near Clayton, Georgia. It, too, featured a large “black/grey” creature, spotted walking in a nearby field. When the witness stopped his car and got out for a better look, the creature reportedly walked back into the woods.

    Bigfoot Sighting Involves An Axe in Oregon

    Also in May, an Oregon man was arrested by police after dialing 911 and claiming he had been attacked by someone with an axe in Klamath County.

    What his frenzied call failed to mention was that the attacker, or so he claimed, was the Pacific Northwest’s very own Sasquatch. With an axe.

    When police questioned the caller at the scene of the alleged crime, Sasquatch was suspiciously absent, and the man appeared unharmed. There was also no explanation for why the hairy cryptid may have attacked the man with an axe in the first place.

    “Upon a subsequent investigation,” said the country’s Deputy District Attorney Cole Chase, “There were no signs that Sasquatch was present.”

    With no evidence of Sasquatch, the weapon, or further details, the man was charged with filing a false police report.

    Indian Army Shares Possible Yeti Footprints

    Via their own verified Twitter account, on April 29 the Indian Army revealed their own discovery of strange prints they believe may have been left by the legendary Yeti:

    “For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast ‘Yeti’ measuring 32×15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019.”

    Pictures were included along with the tweet. Many are skeptical that the prints were left by a yeti. Others suggest the single-file nature of the prints may be evidence of “yeti hopping,” in which the yeti perhaps walks or hops in a line to conceal their numbers. Some experts, on the other hand, believe the prints are simple bear prints.

    Whatever the case, the fact that the Indian Army are the ones making the claim has raised more than a few eyebrows.

    Bigfoot Prints Mystify Argentina

    In other Bigfoot tracks news, in March, two strange incidents occurred in Argentina, each involving the appearance of mysterious human-like footprints.

    El Tribuno featured the story on March 26, 2019 (translated). The footprints were located on a farm in Ovando, and reportedly measured 15cm (about 6 inches) wide and 25cm (about 10 inches) long.

    Adding to the mystery, the prints were found after an incident the previous night on the farm. The farm’s dogs inexplicably began to panic and cry at something that had appeared, after which farmer Nelson Colque ran out and fired shots into the air to scare whatever it might have been. “The odd thing is that when there are people, the dogs usually bark, they do not cry,” Colque recalled.

    A few weeks prior, another massive footprint was found at another area in Argentina, over 500 miles away. As impossible as it would seem, some think the two sets of prints may be related. Some locals believe the prints may have been left by the legendary Ucumar, Agentina’s version of Bigfoot.

    Another Bigfoot Sighting in Utah Raises Questions

    A potential Bigfoot climbs the peak in the distance
    Image: YouTube

    Only three months after a sighting in Provo, Utah rocked the Bigfoot scene (featured farther down in this post), the cryptid seemingly appeared again, this time at Lone Peak, an area southeast of Salt Lake City, Utah, and just north of Provo.

    Yet again, the sighting arrives alongside a video, courtesy the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, along with some lengthy analysis. The actual submitted footage of the Bigfoot encounter can be seen at about 3:09.

    The sighting occurred on March 23, 2019. The witness, a man named Tanner Hargis, contacted RMSO, and provided details of the curious encounter.

    It happened “at around 10:30 AM,” he wrote, “Up on Wasatch Range, near Loan Peak. It was high up to where I don’t think any man will hike up it.” Hargis was standing in his own backyard at the time, filming the shadowy figure with the high zoom of his spotting scope.

    He thought the potential Bigfoot, which he guessed looked about 8 feet tall, may have been “about 8600 feet in elevation” while walking along the peak.

    That makes two rather high-profile Bigfoot sightings in Utah so far this year. Will there be more?

    Possible Bigfoot Prints Found in Washington

    In early March, Steven Meacham was out for a drive in Medical Lake, Washington when he and his wife spotted some rather massive footprints in the snow. Upon closer inspection, the prints measured 24 inches long, and were spaced 30 inches apart.

    Meacham later shared images of the prints on Facebook, and the story was picked up by local media.

    Were they made by Bigfoot? “It’s a possibility,” Meacham told KHQ Local News, “I can’t say I’m 100 percent sure, but I hope so.”

    The size and stride of the footprints have left many wondering just what, if not Bigfoot, may have created them. While they could very well be the result of a man-made hoax, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife speculate that they may just be ordinary human prints that have become “distorted” by the melting snow.

    Others, however, are prone to believe that they are, indeed, Sasquatch prints.

    Yowie Hair Found on Fence in Australia

    Australian cryptid chaser David Taylor claims to have found possible evidence of the Yowie, a legendary Bigfoot-like creature of the Outback.

    The evidence came in the form of a clump of strange hair, which he found clinging to a barbed wire fence north of Mackay in Queensland. The discovery happened in February. The scene looked as though something huge got snagged, the fence itself appearing “snapped and twisted.” Meanwhile, the hair smelled absolutely awful, says Taylor, like “rotten meat crossed with urine.”

    The Daily Mail provides images of both the hair and fence, as well as information on Taylor’s previous Yowie sighting. The hair is very thick and long, while the fence appears twisted up, as if something got caught in it.

    The mysterious hair is now being examined by experts to determine what animal it may belong to, though Taylor expects the analysis to be inconclusive.

    Bigfoot Sighting On Mountains in Provo, Utah

    On January 2, 2019, the year got off to an interesting start when a video appeared of a possible Bigfoot stomping about in the snowy mountains of Provo, Utah.

    “I’m just gonna get more footage of the Sasquatch,” the man behind the camera says, rather nonchalantly, as he films a large, dark figure in the distance. “He’s just chillin’.” Everyone in the video seems in awe of the figure’s size. Even at a fair distance, it appears “huge.”

    The video originated on Facebook, and was later shared by a friend on Reddit. “I’m bugged that he started filming with the video in vertical mode,” the friend wrote, “Everybody in his comments is telling him to hike up and check out the footprints.”

    One commenter in the Reddit thread coincidentally mentions the existence of a “Bigfoot family” that is said to live “around Cascade Saddle.” Bigfoot activity is commonly reported in the area, with broken trees and the occasional discovery of “massive tree structures.”

    Bigfoot’s Glowing Eyes Spotted in North Carolina

    Not everything out in the woods is as it seems, and not everything is so unusual, either. In January, numerous sightings of glowing red eyes led to an official response from a local animal shelter in Davie County, North Carolina.

    Residents reported witnessing the glowing eyes while driving down Pine Ridge Rd. in Mocksville. The Davie County Animal Shelter found itself inundated with calls about the seemingly spectral phenomenon, with people reporting possible Bigfoot sightings.

    Turns out it was Bigfoot, from a certain point of view.

    That is, the glowing red eyes were the result of reflections from a statue. A statue of Bigfoot.

    “If you see this phenomenon,” the animal shelter posted to Facebook on January 11, “You do not need to call animal control to report seeing Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or any other large creature.” They also included a picture of the statue, taken in daylight. It’s a large, dark figure holding a stick, staring out at the road.

  • UFO Sightings 2019: Strange Lights And Haunted Skies

    February 15, 2019
    Photo of UFO Sightings 2019: Strange Lights And Haunted Skies

    Are UFO sightings on the rise? According to NUFORC data, 2018 saw 3,253 total reports, down from 4,655 reports in 2017. However, as of December 7, 2019, 5,242 reports have been submitted to their database, with an uptick in sightings beginning in September.

    Below, you’ll find a number of UFO sightings, videos, and other oddities updated throughout the year. You can also check out the UFO category for more general posts on mysterious objects in the sky.

    Physicist Shares Details of His E.T. Experience On Twitter

    Image: Kévin Langlais/Unsplash

    Physicist Deep Prasad recently shared details on his Twitter account regarding his own alleged encounter with extraterrestrials.

    As he recounted, the event happened on February 1, 2019. “It happened in broad daylight at 9:40 in the morning in my home,” he wrote on Twitter, “I was paralyzed against my will, could not move, and saw 3 entities that had no-chill.”

    Perhaps similar to the alleged encounter with the Rendlesham Forest UFO, Prasad went on to claim that the aliens attempted to communicate with him telepathically, showing him “glyphs” and text he couldn’t comprehend.

    “I was trying to make sense of the symbols. It was incredibly frustrating that I couldn’t understand or translate them. The sentences and paragraphs would keep flipping rapidly and the only English word I saw, at least 3 times, was the word, ‘DNA’.”

    Outside of his personal experience, Prasad is no stranger to the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials. He appeared on Coast to Coast AM just last October to speak about the so-called “2004 Tic-Tac Event,” which he also wrote about over at Medium. That particular incident involved an unidentified object similar in shape to a Tic Tac breath mint, spotted by the U.S. Navy.

    Prasad suggested that, to move as quickly and strangely as it reportedly did, the UFO may have been “using more spatial dimensions than the 3 we’re used to.”

    Unexplained ‘Fireball’ Appears Over South Carolina

    A short video uploaded on October 28, 2019 shows a strange fireball in the skies over South Carolina. YouTuber Kymberleigh Jordan wrote that she saw the object while driving. “You can’t even tell it is moving in this video,” she wrote, “But it was moving downward very slowly.” She also claimed to see an “eye” in the object. In the video, a plane can be seen passing near it.

    Some speculate that the object is a meteor, or perhaps another, larger aircraft (or even multiple aircrafts).

    UFO Sighting On U.S. Route 74

    At about 8:00 a.m. on October 25, 2019, a man stuck in traffic on U.S. Route 74 witnessed an anomalous object in the skies above Cleveland County, North Carolina.

    “I’m a train you-tuber who doesn’t know a thing about this. The video was taken by one of my dads friends on the way to work on highway 74 in Cleveland County NC.”

    The witness managed to capture footage of his strange UFO sighting, showing the alleged craft as a distant glowing object that appeared to spin (the video highlights the spinning object, asking “Possible reflection off of the window?”).

    The object may, indeed, be a drone. The Charlotte Observer highlighted the sighting on November 8, describing it as a “disc-like object” that “remained stationary” in the air before disappearing, according to a witness, who also described it as “diamond shaped.”

    UFO ‘Fleet’ Sighted Off North Carolina

    On September 28, 2019, YouTuber William Guy uploaded a video showing what many described as a “fleet” of UFOs over the Outer Banks of North Carolina. At least 14 bright glowing unidentified objects could be seen over the water, leaving the witnesses bewildered. “What is that?” Guy can be heard asking, “We’re in the middle of the ocean on a ferry, nothing around…”

    One possible explanation for the lights are drop flares, or perhaps some other type of flare used in military exercises, dropped by a passing plane. A military base exists about 125 miles west of the Outer Banks, according to Fox News. However, the witnesses in the video said nothing of an aircraft (“nothing around”), and apparently a spokesman from the base has claied that none of their aircraft were in the area that day.

    The video itself has been viewed over 1.5 million times since it was uploaded.


    UFO witness calls the police in Wyoming

    A woman in Powell, Wyoming reported a possible UFO sighting to police on August 7, 2019. According to the Powell Tribune, the incident occurred at 11:23 p.m., when the unidentified woman phoned the Park County Sheriff’s Office to report two mysterious crafts — one a darker color, the other light — hovering in the sky just south of town.

    When a sheriff’s deputy arrived, along with a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper, there were no crafts or lights in the area. However, the woman described her strange encounter, telling them that she’d witnessed multiple “blue and white lights.” One of the alleged crafts appeared to land in a distant corn field. The other craft continued flying over the road.

    In a statement, the sheriff’s office said they don’t believe the woman was “impaired” at the time. As to what she saw that night, the sighted crafts, they say, may have simply been drones.

    “Shapeshifting” UFO filmed over Cambridge, England

    In July, footage surfaced of an alleged “shape shifting UFO” flying over Cambridge. The footage was captured on July 21, and uploaded by the YouTube channel Aviation Videos & Wildlife FULL HD.

    What separates this purported UFO video from others is that, unlike much of the footage we tend to see, this channel doesn’t typically upload videos of UFOs or other paranormal topics. Mostly, as their name implies, the channel features planes and birds and other wildlife.

    In the video, a bright object can be seen in the sky. It appears spherical, or at least bright enough to obscure any detailed features. Scott Warring of UFO Sightings Daily describes the UFO as having a “fuzzy outer area” which may be related to an “alien propulsion system” of some kind. The story and video was also featured by the Daily Express.

    UFO falls from sky, eats lake

    In January, WSMV News Channel 4 out of Nashville, Tennessee brought us the story of an old pond that suddenly lost its water.

    The pond is at least 100 years old, located just south of Nashville in the backyard of a woman named Patsy Wright. As she recounted, an object appeared to fall from the sky, landing in the pond. The water then drained, revealing a mysterious hole at the bottom (WSMV provides a flyover image of the empty pond and its hole).

    While some believe it’s a sinkhole, Wright is convinced of what she saw: “I know something hit it,” she said, “because I heard it.” The hole is also particularly deep. It’s unknown at this point if the hole has been investigated.

    Weird green lights over England

    Flashing green lights puzzled residents of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire in England on January 5, 2019. The incident occurred some time between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., according to the Nottingham Post.

    Social media posts described “bright lights” and, in one case, “three flashes of green light.” Some said the lights were “neon green,” perhaps with a bit of white, while others reported blue coloring.

    The lights also appeared to move much farther than drones are typically known for.

    Mysterious plane troubles residents of Kingston, Canada

    In January, Residents of Kingston, Ontario began reporting a mysterious sound that occurred for several weeks, usually at night. It sounded like a low-flying plane, and yet, every time they’d look outside, no plane could be seen.

    The story began circulating of a “phantom plane,” and at some points it could be heard flying overhead for hours, late into the night.

    Related: Ghost Plane Over Derbyshire Returns

    According to CBC, both the local Kingston airport and Canadian Forces said they were unaware of any planes flying in the area at those times. However, an eventual update claimed the noise was caused by a “Pilatus PC-12 RCMP surveillance plane” that had been used during a “national security investigation.”

    Vertical orange light above Canada

    Image: YouTube

    On December 30, 2018, YouTube user Spazz zz uploaded a curious video out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It shows a vertical orange light shining through low clouds in the sky. “I have no idea what it is any ideas?” the uploader asked.

    In the video, one of the speakers raises the possibility that the light is a result of HAARP. A commenter, meanwhile, suggested the event happened on “the same day [she] heard those weird sounds coming from the sky.”

    Most viewers, however, have concluded the light is nothing more than a natural phenomenon known as a light pillar. You can view an image from January 2016 of a number of light pillars in Stockhom, Sweden here.

    UFO & Alien-Related News

    • Number of sightings reported to NUFORC as of December 7, 2019: 5,244

    December 7, 2019 – Looking at NUFORC, this year saw a drastic increase in the number of submitted UFO sighting reports beginning in September. October alone accounted for 699 total sightings, the highest of any month since November 2015 (906).

    September 6 – A new Gallup poll suggests that 68% of Americans believe the government knows more about UFOs than they’re letting on. Meanwhile, at least one-third believe UFOs are extraterrestrial in nature.

    August 27 – On August 27, 2019, over 300 people gathered at the Marshall County Historical Society’s commemoration to acknowledge the 40th anniversary of an historical local UFO sighting. The sighting occurred on the same date in 1979, when Deputy Val Johnson witnessed a mysterious bright light in the sky. The Grand Forks Herald recalls the story.

    August 16 – The meditation center belonging to a UFO group in Thailand was raided on August 15 and 16 by police due to “suspected forest encroachment.” The group, known as UFO Kao Kala, has been gathering at the area for years. However, according to recent reports, local officials fear the gatherings may negatively impact nearby “forest space.”

    The group was founded in the late 1990s, after its founder, Somjit Reapeth, sighted a UFO and aliens at Khao Kala Mountain. He claimed to be able to communicate with them, and promised to train others to do the same.

    August 8 – Heading into an election year, Bernie Sanders has apparently pledged to “disclose any government information about unidentified flying objects” if elected to office, according to Space.com. Sanders made the comment during an interview with Joe Rogan on August 8, saying that his wife “would demand I let you know.”

    July – Stranger things are afoot at Area 51, as a large number of individuals on Facebook have pledged to meet up outside the top-secret base in September. The original plan was to “storm” it, though the creator of the event has since changed gears (it was originally meant to be a joke, he says). He instead wants to hold an alien-themed music festival out in the high desert.

    You know, it’s all fun and games until you burn your own house down trying to defeat vampires. Or shoot someone because you think they’re Bigfoot.

    A few days ago, news hit out of Daytona Beach that a Florida man had burned his house down while trying to fend off hallucinatory vampires. According to Local 10 News, on the afternoon of December 23, the man’s wife attempted to have him “committed for mental health reasons.” However, when police first showed up, he was seemingly of sound mind.

  • A Classic Demonic EVP: “I have the body of a pig.”

    October 29, 2018
    Photo of A Classic Demonic EVP: “I have the body of a pig.”

    Electronic voice phenomena is one of the most haunting aspects of the paranormal.

    I remember listening to episodes of Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM long ago involving EVPs, and they ran the gamut, from faint voices saying “hello” to violent disembodied clanging noises, and what Bell himself found so terrifying: the sound of people crying on the other side. All of it was inaudible to the human ear, but later revealed through the use of recording devices.
