Weekend 2 Cents: Stalked by Bigfoot Near Lake Tahoe -- Taking 'Halloween Decor' a Bit Too Far -- Celebrity Selling 'Psychic Vampire Repellent'


Stalked by Bigfoot Near Lake Tahoe

Deborah in Lake Tahoe called in to tell of her weird Bigfoot encounters:

“I wanted to relate an incident that happened to me. I grew up here at Lake Tahoe and in an area called Fallen Leaf Lake, Taylor Creek area. We were a group of teenagers...late teens. We were all camping out there and some of us decided to leave and come back into town. As we were coming back, it's a dirt road a couple miles out and we're coming back. The we could hear something behind us and I'm looking back. We thought it was a friend possibly playing a trick on us and it was darting from tree to tree. It wasn't very tall. It was about as big as we were. We get out to the main road and this thing is keeping some yardage back, behind pine trees...it's staying well hidden, but it's following us. We're hitchhiking and no takers at that point.

As we are crossing over Taylor Creek, kind of just hanging out there for a little bit, we hear something coming down the creek. It was running and it was two legged, not four-legged...you know the difference. And we're looking up there and now there's a car coming our way and just pulling over at that time to give us a ride. But we all spoke about it later and so we figured it was a parent Bigfoot coming after the young juvenile. The smaller creature that we saw, you could see it was hairy all over. We figured it was probably one of the parents coming to see what was going on with their kid. It was coming down the creek, because saw something a little bit back. We just piled into this truck and asked them to take off quickly and that was that encounter.

About 17 or 18 years later and about the same area, I was out there with some other friends. It's quite a good hiking and camping area. It was definitely somewhere between 11:00 and 1:00 AM and we heard as JC (JC Johnson was the guest) was describing, we heard something breaking through the brush and he was describing the wailing. I've thought of it as years went by, a keen sort of noise but so incredibly loud and it was far away and moving closer towards us. We could hear something coming through the brush. Anybody have any idea what that might be? And again we are just trying to get to a car because something is coming through the brush. At that point, we just kind of got out of there.”

Taking 'Halloween Decor' a Bit Too Far

GREENEVILLE, TN (WJHL) – First responders rushed into what they thought was a heinous crime scene after dispatchers received a chilling 911 call Wednesday morning, but it turned out to be a Halloween joke.

News Channel 11 obtained a copy of that 911 call from the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

The caller said: “There’s a guy laying in his driveway, with two big bloody handprints on side of the house. It looks like he was dead I don’t know I didn’t stop I just came on to work.”

Johnny Riddle made that frantic call to 911 after seeing what appeared to be a dead body in his neighbor’s driveway on Chuckey Pike in Greeneville.

“I thought it was somebody, I thought it was somebody laying up there on the driveway,” Riddle said.

It turned out to be clothing stuffed with paper. Read more at Halloween decor prompts 911 call, owner says ‘it’s all in fun’

Celebrity Selling 'Psychic Vampire Repellent'

Twenty years ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was perhaps better known for her infamous Oscars acceptance speech, and the Brad Pitt break-up that crushed our little nineties hearts.

Nowadays, she is the queen of unusual health hacks. The 44-year-old presents the world with her unique approach to wellness through her website, Goop, advocating everything from vaginal steaming to health cleanses that advise you to drink nothing but goats milk for eight days. Even Miranda Kerr is getting her Goop on by investing in the occasional leech facial.

However, Gwyneth’s most recent product push is perhaps one of the strangest yet – and all things considered, that’s saying something.

The actress-turned-health guru’s website is now selling Psychic Vampire Repellent, a ‘sprayable elixir’ that will not only ‘banish bad vibes’ but will also shield you from ‘the people who might be causing them.’

What a multi-purpose product! And all for the bargain price of $30 (£22). Read more at Gwyneth Paltrow is now selling psychic vampire repellent to ‘banish bad vibes’

Two Skeletons Found at Haunted House

Two human skeletons possibly dating back to the 13th or 14th century have been found just inches under the ground at what is dubbed Shetland's most haunted property.

The find - at Windhouse in Yell - confirms long-held views that the dilapidated former laird's house, which dates back to the early 18th century, sits on an old graveyard.

The remains were found when surveys had to be carried out on the site after Windhouse's owner, who bought the property last year, started looking into redeveloping it back into a house.

The archeological examinations were needed before any work can be done as there is a broch beside it, as well as a longhouse and a neolithic chambered cairn below it.

The Windhouse has been left in ruins for years. Photo: Shetland News The Windhouse has been left in ruins for years. Photo: Shetland News There were previously no physical signs of a graveyard - but that has all changed after skeletons were recently discovered right next to the property in shallow graves which are as little as six inches below the ground.

Local archeologist Val Turner said it is "definitely" likely that there will be more human remains on site yet to be discovered, possibly directly under the house itself.

"The skeletons go right up to the door, and doubtless there were skeletons underneath," she said.

"The house appears to be on top of the graveyard – hence its reputation for being haunted, of course. Read more at Ancient graveyard at 'most haunted house'

'Chicago Phantom' Threatens & Pursues Witnesses in Little Village


The following report was submitted to Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse on Wednesday September 20, 2017. The actual incident occurred on Saturday September 16, 2017 at about 10:00PM CT. The original report was submitted in Spanish:

We were walking back from visiting a family member's house, when we saw what looked like a huge bat (later described as having 'large wings and black') fly over our heads and continue down the street. As we continued walking, we saw that the bat had landed on the ground across the street from the tiendita (convenience store) on the corner of S. Ridgeway Ave. and W. 24th St. We also noticed that it was looking right at us as we walked toward the intersection, it was very easy to see it with the lights. As we got nearer, we saw someone come out of the tiendita across the street and this thing turned its attention toward the person, who saw it and screamed and took off running. It was then that it turned back to us and opened its wings and took a step toward us. My sister and I did not stand around to see what was going to happen next and took off running back toward W. 23rd St.

The family members house where we had come from was near the viaduct where the train goes over. This large bat let out a shriek and took off into the air, because it flew just over our heads and then landed about 15 feet in front of us on the road. It looked right at us and shrieked at us. At that time a car turned onto S. Ridgeway Ave. from behind us on W. 24th St. This bat took off from the road and flew off, leaving us cowering on the sidewalk.

We have never been so scared in all of our lives and we hate to think what would have happened to us if that car had not turned the corner when it did. The car continued its way, not even stopping and we headed back to our family member's house and her son gave us a ride home.

Manuel Navarette's notes:

After receiving the report, an investigator did make contact with the witnesses and spoke at length with both of them via telephone. Both siblings spoke of the events leading up to the encounter, neither strayed from the story as told in the sighting report. Even after being questioned by the investigator separately they both told the exact same story with no embellishment. They have both agreed to meet with a field investigator to retrace the steps at the sight of the encounter. It will be scheduled at a future date and any information will be posted on the website.

It is the investigator's opinion that the sighting appears genuine, but further investigation is warranted since the nature of the sighting is completely different than any of the others. Field investigators will be sent to the location within the next 72 hours to gather any additional data and to attempt to speak with people in the area in an attempt to gather more information.




NOTE: This series of encounters was within a few blocks of the S. Millard Ave. encounter the previous week. This account describes a more aggressive being than any of the prior reports. I believe that there may have been real danger if the circumstance would have been slightly different. I really hope that this is not an ominous sign for the future. Manuel stated to me that he plans to go to the location and talk with the witnesses for further being descriptions and details. Any updates will be included with this post. This sighting has been added to the Chicago Phantom / Owlman / Mothman / Man-Bat / Flying Humanoid Reports - Chicago Metro Area - Interactive Map

'Skinny Gargoyle' Confronted By Florida Truck Driver


I received the following account early this morning and talked to 'AP' this afternoon. It seems that sightings & encounters, similar to those in the Chicago area, are beginning to surface nationwide. I've talked to a few trusted investigators the past couple of weeks, who state that they are also receiving scattered reports:

Hello. I had read about these encounters of bat-like humanoids and obviously thought it was pretty fascinating. I just recently started a new job in Clearwater, Florida where I'm delivering donuts for a major company. I deliver along a route which consists of four different stops. I drive from Clearwater to Port Richey, then to Brooksville and Zephyrhills.

Two weeks ago I had the night off, so another guy I worked my route. And in case you don't know Brooksville, Fl and Zephyrhills, Fl. are both riddled with dark roads with no street lights, and just trees to the left and right side of the road. Apparently when he was driving between his third and fourth stop near Zephyrhills, (on Rt 98 / US 301 at about 3:30PM) he said he saw this "thing" floating stationary about 15 feet off the ground next to a tree. As he got closer he realized it looked like a dark-colored humanoid in a cannonball position just floating in the air. Like frozen. He said by the time he asked himself "WTF is that?" The creature unraveled itself and it spread out its legs and giant bat-like wings. He didn't know what color the creature was but he said it was definitely a dark color and it had human-like legs. And he said at the same moment it spread its wings and legs it flew toward his truck at an unrealistic speed like a fighter jet. He said he almost crashed the truck in the ditch because it basically paralyzed him with fear. He said it happened so fast he didn't get a look at the face but he said it was probably between 5 and 6 feet tall and dark colored and it had human legs with bat wings. He also said that about a 1/2 mile before he saw the creature he saw a bunch of dead deer on the side of the road. Like piles of deer, 2 separate piles of at least four deer. He assumes it was eating them. The witness is a pretty soft-spoken dude and intelligent. The way he tells the story, I can tell it really freaked him out. AP

NOTE: I called AP, who recounted the incident that the witness described to him. He told me that the witness told him that the being looked like a 'skinny gargoyle.' He was unable to get a good look at the face, so there was no mention of red eyes or other facial features. The legs were definitely human-like and the wings span was at least 12 or more feet in width. AP also stated that while explaining the encounter, the witness started to look pale and distressed. This is the 3rd sighting I've received form Florida recently. AP told me that he has his camera ready with him at all times...and plans to keep his eyes open while driving along that route. Lon
