Daily 2 Cents: Aliens, Doppelgangers and Other Anomalies -- Girl Killed by Jumping Sturgeon -- Plagued by Evil Spirits
Aliens, Doppelgangers and Other Anomalies
Bartlesville, OK - 8/14/1984: I was probably around six, at the time. This occurred after I had a sighting. After that first sighting I was unreasonably afraid of strange men that I thought were in the forest outside of my window for several years.
One night I woke up and my window appeared to be sealed off. Everything else in my room was the same as before except for the window. A large, light bulb shaped, head with large, black, almond shaped eyes, was coming through the seal on the window. I interpreted it as a balloon with an angry face. I had not been exposed to "Grey" aliens at this age, so I didn't realize that was exactly what this looked like until I was several years older.
I was terrified. I ran down the hall to my parents' room and couldn't wake them up. I was terrified, shouting, and pulling at them, but they wouldn't wake up. Eventually I was overcome with a feeling of defeat and apathy and said to myself "I guess I had better go and get what's coming to me", or something like that. As I went back to my bedroom, I could see a bright light and the angry light bulb head. The next thing I knew I was laying in bed, it was daylight, and I was terrified.
I talked to my parents about it, and they didn't remember me going into their room. They said it must have been a nightmare, and that's what I have believed. I drew pictures of the light bulb balloon head for several years after that, and was always terrified that there were strange, inhuman, men in the forest waiting to take me away.
This isn't the only strange thing that happened in that room. Many odd things happened there. For instance, I noticed that my toys were moved after we left and returned when nobody else was in the house, so I left out a stack of toy bricks. As soon as we got home I checked on them and they were unstacked on my desk. I attributed this to the spirit of my deceased brother (I don't believe in such things now, but as a child that was my explanation).
Another time, when I was about five years old, in that same room, my mother and I were cleaning. She was dusting a shelf when the phone rang in her bedroom. I watched her walk down the hallway and answer the phone. When I turned back and looked in my room, there was my mother, but it wasn't my mother because I could hear my mother on the phone down the hallway. This doppelganger looked at me angrily, reached up to the top shelf of my bookshelf where I couldn't reach. We kept my deceased brother's piggy bank up on that shelf so that I wouldn't be able to break it. The doppelganger took the piggy bank and smashed it on my desk. I cried. My mother came rushing in from her bedroom asking what happened. I hadn't moved from my position in the doorway, but the doppelganger was gone, and I told my mother that she had broken the piggy bank, which, of course, she denied since she was in the other room on the telephone.
I still have no idea what that was about.
Other things that I experienced in that room were a pair of strange blue hands on the side of my bed that caused me to leap and run out of the room when I was about seven or so. I also awoke to a little man standing on the foot of my bed one night. I carried on a brief conversation with him and told him that I had to show him to my parents. He said that he would leave if I did that. I told him to wait, went and got my parents, and, of course, when they came in with me, there was nothing there. I chalked that up to a dream too.
The strangest thing was when I woke up at night and saw a swarm of creatures composed only of odd angles and light outside of the window, I referred to them as "angels", and then I saw a bright light that I thought was "god". I told my mother about it the next morning, we figured that was just a dream as well.
I always chalked these experiences up to just being a kid, or dreams. However, once we moved out of that house this sort of thing stopped happening for the most part.
Since I had a death in the family at a young age, I was checked out by therapists pretty often to make sure that I was coping with things well. I always had a clean bill of mental health. I have no record of anything that could be considered psychosis, or schizophrenia. I did not experience these things as an adult, and I went on to hold positions with the US Government that required security clearances.
Although I have had several UFO sightings as an adult, these sorts of encounters were not a normal thing after moving out of that place. Perhaps it was a child's overactive imagination, hallucinations, or dreams. Perhaps there is some strange electromagnetic current in that room, or maybe it is something else that I can't understand.
I have been going through my previous UFO encounters and reporting them before I get any older and forget about them, and these incidents came up. They had some similarities to other stories that I have seen on your site recently, and since I have seen a variety of UFOs over the years, I figured that these accounts could possibly be related in some way, or that they may be useful to some researcher, somewhere. - MUFON CMS
Jumping sturgeon kills 5-year-old girl on Suwanee River
A 5-year-old girl was killed by a jumping sturgeon Thursday on the Suwanee River near Fanning Springs, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Then, two more people were hurt by a jumping sturgeon on Friday on the Sante Fe River.
Jayln Rippy died in the accident Thursday, and her mother, Tanya Faye, 31, and her brother, Trevor, 9, were injured. Both of them will need facial surgery.
This is the first fatality that has been recorded from a sturgeon strike on the Suwannee River, according to FWC. Four boaters have been injured this year.
The Rippy family was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville on Thursday.
On Friday, Colleen and Charles Harvey were transported to Shands after they were hit by a sturgeon on the Sante Fe. They were eastbound from the Suwanee headed toward Ellie Ray Campground when they were struck.
The FWC reminds anyone in a boat to wear life jackets and do no stay on the bow of the craft.
"With the low water levels in the river system, the sturgeon are jumping much more frequently than in recent years," said Maj. Andy Krause, FWC regional commander in Lake City. "We want everyone boating on the Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers to be aware that the sturgeon are jumping and that people have been injured." - Jumping sturgeon kills 5-year-old girl on Suwanee River
Plagued by Evil Spirits
Kerry Katona is convinced that she is haunted by evil spirits.
The former Atomic Kitten star has claimed that ghosts have plagued her throughout her life and have been responsible for all the bad things that have happened to her.
She has also insisted that her husband George Kay's recent health scare was caused by the spirits, who she believes are out to destroy her.
"I always have a goal and then something bad happens. Whether it's drugs, divorce, bankruptcy, my exes or George's health scare."
"I'm 100 percent sure it was them," she told The Sun.
She even claims that the spirits have even begun targeting her 14-month old, Dylan-Gorge.
"DJ will sit in her cot and have a full-blown conversation when there is no one there. I can hear her chatting away sometimes but she doesn't even speak yet"
In an effort to end her lifelong nightmare, Brian McFadden's ex recently called in a team of ghosthunters to try and rid her of the spirits once and for all.
During a reported 5-hour long exorcism, a voice told Kerry and her family to "get out" of their house, before screaming "George! Watch! Face!"
Thankfully, the paranormal investigators helping Kerry believe that they have managed to rid the house of the evil spirits.
"I wouldn't rule out the ghost causing George's face problem. But I'm pleased we got rid of it because who knows what's capable of." - 'It was the ghosts that did this' - Kerry Katona blames failed marriages, drug addiction and her husband's 'stroke' on evil spirits

During the past three years I have been searching for follow-up information related to a series of strange incidents that occurred in the L'Amoreaux neighborhood of North York in metro Toronto, Ontario.
On the late afternoon of July 26, 2012 a girl in her late teens and her boyfriend were returning home from the movies. As they approached her home they noticed a strange looking woman with startling gothic makeup and long black hair who was dressed in a long black dress and high-heel shoes walking towards them as they pulled into the driveway. Even though the vehicle had dark tinted windows, the girl stated that "the woman made eye-to-eye contact with me." Alarmed by this frightening stranger, they immediately backed out of the driveway and pulled away from the location. The boyfriend decided to circle the neighborhood and then return back to his girlfriend's home. As the girl looked back, she was shocked to see that the woman was "walking very fast and following us." They increased speed and eventually lost their pursuant.
The girl called home to warn her brother about the strange woman. While on the phone her brother looked out the window and the same woman in black was standing directly outside the window wildly waving her arms and staring at him. He looked away...then looked again. The woman had vanished. But he promptly noticed something else. A man dressed in a black dress suit and wearing ear plugs was walking in the street past the front of the house. The man looked straight ahead and was swinging his arms as he walked...almost like he was controlled somehow. The man proceeded down the street, still in sight of the witness, then unexpectedly vanished!
The girl and her boyfriend soon arrive at her home. The strangers were not in sight. After the witnesses detailed their experiences to each other they looked out the window to see if either of the strangers had returned. What they saw was a large black cat with bright eyes staring back at them. "It (the cat) almost seemed to know what we were saying and thinking" stated the girl. As they watched the curious feline it started to slowly walk toward the vegetation along the driveway...then it simply vanished before it reached the bushes.
Both the girl and her brother submitted audio statements to me...on separate days and apart from each other. Both statements were very similar in the description of specific details. I had made inquiries to investigators in the Toronto metro area as well as local officials. There have been no other similar incidents reported. I initially received this information by chance since it was brought up during an interview with one of the girl's relatives on an unrelated case. The relative noted the incident and I followed up on it.
The anomalous manner in which these series of sightings transformed seems to suggest that this was more than just a prank. The sensations experienced by the witnesses when the woman stared at them, as well as the atypical speed in which the high-heeled stranger displayed during its pursuit of the vehicle indicates supernatural traits.
NOTE: I also want to mention, the film 'Men In Black III' was released on the day of the incident. This was also the film the couple watched that afternoon. I investigated the possibility of a viral campaign for the film, but nothing evolved. Feel free to share your thoughts. If you have information related to this incident, please forward it. Lon

The Skinwalker Ranch Story
On World UFO Day, the story of the Skinwalker Ranch, which had such a history of weird phenomena—UFO sightings, strange voices—it became the subject of scientific study.
In the ranching heartland of America, a mysterious plot of land has been dubbed “the strangest place of earth.”
If tales are to be believed, Skinwalker Ranch is an epicenter of extraterrestrial activity, surrounded for decades by disproportionate amounts of UFO sightings and paranormal phenomenons.
Sky-watchers celebrating World UFO Day on Thursday should train their telescopes on the alleged alien landing zone of northeastern Utah.
In 1994, Terry and Gwen Sherman and their children moved themselves and their cattle into the 480-acre ranch south of Fort Duchesne, Utah.
Within two years, they had sold the ranch, desperate to leave behind the paranormal torment they claim they’d been bombarded with.
“For a long time we wondered what we were seeing, if it was something to do with a top-secret project,” Terry told the Deseret News in 1996. “I don’t know really what to think about it.”
The family described a ship the size of multiple football fields and strange blinking lights. The soil on their fields had large impressions flattened into the grass.
There were voices speaking in strange languages that seemed to emanate from thin air.
Terry spotted a figure “over seven feet tall” standing next to an object.
Cows would disappear into thin air and others would be found killed and mutilated. In total, 14 expensive cattle were taken from the 80-head herd. After chasing a bouncing ball of light, three of their dogs were never seen again.
Local retired high school teacher Joseph Hicks had been researching the area’s paranormal sightings since observing a flying object with his students in 1951.
The Native American Ute tribe who had called the area home for thousands of years had folklore of mysterious “skinwalker” creatures.
The piece of land hosting the Shermans’ ranch was already notorious for mysterious sightings and over the years he had chronicled hundreds of sightings.
In 1978, a Deseret News article detailed one with multiple witnesses who identified a flying saucer floating over the village, around 10 miles from the ranch.
In his studies, Hicks found that the Native American Ute tribe who had called the area home for thousands of years had folklore of mysterious “skinwalker” creatures. The particular patch of ranchland had long been deemed cursed and forbidden. It earned the name Skinwalker Ranch.
In 2002, Hicks told journalist George Knapp—who wrote the definitive ranch history for the Las Vegas Mercury—that the Uintah Basin region was so rife with extraterrestrial occurences that an estimated half of the population had witnessed UFO activity.
A few weeks after the 1996 Deseret News article came out about the ranch’s mysterious occurrences, a reclusive Las Vegas hotelier flew to meet the Shermans and struck a deal to buy the property for $200,000.
Robert T. Bigelow had made his fortune in the Budget Suites of America hotel chain and was well known for the interest and money he had spent to legitimize paranormal investigation.
The year before he purchased the ranch, he had poured millions of dollars of his own money into founding the National Institute of Discovery Science as a scientifically strict research lab to investigate extraterrestrial activity.
Moving the team to the Skinwalker Ranch, NIDS quickly built an observation post, strung the property with video cameras and hired researchers to observe it 24 hours a day, turning it into a scientific research laboratory.
It chronicled multiple bizarre events, including otherworldly animals.
As Bigelow described to Wired in a rare interview, he came from a family of believers. His grandparents first saw a UFO in 1947, when driving across the Nevada desert.
Through his childhood and later in life, he was fascinated by the paranormal, interviewing people who said they had spotted extraterrestrials and digging into government information.
“I have an enormous amount of data from a lot of different sources that give me some pretty strong convictions about the authenticity of the existence of anomalous phenomena, such as UFOs,” he told Wired.
In founding NIDS, he pulled in a high-caliber staff, including Colonel John Alexander, a NATO adviser who previously headed the non-lethal weapons testing at the Los Alamos National Library.
But with strained funding and a slowdown of paranormal sightings at the ranch, NIDS shut down in 2004.
In its final findings, it concluded the type of objects spotted flying over Utah and elsewhere were not consistent with covert American military aircraft.
Bigelow then transitioned his focus into space tourism, starting Bigelow Aerospace, a company that has struck deals with NASA.
A spokesperson for Bigelow Aerospace said the company had “no comment relative to Skinwalker Ranch.” The project may have been dismantled, but it’s said that Bigelow still owns Skinwalker Ranch, leaving the aliens in peace. - Why Do UFOs Love This Utah Ranch So Much?

Large Predatory Cat Stalking Plymouth
An animal that resembles a large predatory cat has been seen stalking a quiet neighborhood in England.
The idea that there could be a population of large cats roaming the British countryside is certainly nothing new. The phenomenon, which has spawned numerous legends over the years, has been investigated several times but to date no conclusive explanation has ever been found.
Some of the sightings are believed to have been the result of big cat owners releasing their animals in to the wild after the introduction of the Dangerous Wild Animals Act in 1976, but with reports of large cats continuing well in to the 21st century it seems unlikely that this could explain all of them.
This latest sighting, which was reported by 59-year-old office worker Carole Desforges, appears to be of another exotic species of cat such as a puma, lynx or leopard.
"I was in the living room and saw something blurry outside through the living room door," said Desforges. "I grabbed my phone and took a picture."
"I guess it remains a mystery. I enjoy the speculation about it all. "
Her sighting is one of 200 reported in the Devon and Cornwall region over the last 13 years.
Couple Claim Demonic Molestation
A terrified family attacked in the night by a dreaded "incubus demon" have called a ghostbuster to get rid of the malevolent spirit.
In a story reminiscent of the film Paranormal Activity, the Fry family say they have been molested by an evil poltergeist for months.
Mum Tracey, 46, even says she is beaten up in the night by the phantom - leaving her covered with bruises in the morning.
In desperation her husband Keiron, 32, forked out £100 to a specialist to "cleanse" the house and has brought a vicar in to bless their cursed abode.
The phantom, which has also been menacing the couple's three children, was summoned by a using a Ouija board in the house, they say.
That friend is no longer on speaking terms with the family.
Dad-of-three Keiron took a pic of the ghost in his sons' bedroom which he says shows a small child in a white gown with a blue face and a tail.
Keiron said: "We are being molested by demons.
"My wife goes to bed fine, doesn't feel anything in the night but when she wakes up she's in agony.
"I wake up the next day and said: 'I didn't do that. I would never beat my wife'. Read more at Couple call in ghostbuster and vicar after claiming demonic poltergeist molests them in their sleep
