BEKs in the Neighborhood

An anonymous woman called 'Monsters Among Us' podcast to tell of her bizarre encounter with BEKS. She doesn't state a location but she does mention “Mead Street” so it's possible that this happened in Denver, Colorado probably around March of 2015:

“Here's a story that recently happened to me. So, I was on spring break. I went to my dad's for the weekend. I had nothing to do late at night so I liked to walk the town. Kinda walking around late at night alone. I know it can be dangerous but I only had one friend there. So, on Sunday night, I was out on the town alone, leaving a little pub that I found on Mead Street, probably around 1:00 in the morning. I was a little buzzed. Anyways, I wore a big black sweatshirt with dark jeans so that I could fend off any creepers. I hoped that works. So, I was walking back home in the dark with my phone out as a flashlight on the street. There's limited street lights. Although it's a pretty safe neighborhood, I figured nobody would be out.

I was about three houses away from mine and looked over and I saw two figures on the porch, talking to a man who was shaking his head refusing to open the screen-door. I stopped cautiously at the end of the driveway, holding my phone, ready to help or call 911 or something. I really had no idea what was happening. I could only think that these two people were harassing the man who kinda looked angry and maybe a little bit startled. So, by my own means, I didn't think I was gonna be able to help. I'm like 5'6 and 130 pounds. No fighting skills. I just thought that maybe my hoodie would make me look bigger than I did. So I just stood there watching. And I heard the two boys, the two kids, it sounds like. I stepped forward, kinda looking, you know, looking over at this place, kinda like involuntarily moving forward. I don't know why I was. I was like halfway up the driveway and the driveway was illuminated by the porch-light so he could see me and I could see him. And I just stood there watching and I just hear the voices saying, 'Let us in, we need to call our mom. Please you have to let us in.' And these, it was like, no sense of fear in the voice. Just confident. I just stood there with chills running down my spine, unable to move.

I tried to make sense of the situation. From a normal point of view, it looked like a grown man was refusing to help two children late at night. But the sense of dread that I felt at that moment, it just made no sense. Like, why is this guy so afraid of two little kids? So, finally, I cleared my throat, thinking this man might help the kids, or if the man needed help, I could still do something. So the man looked up and the kids turned around. And the man looked even more afraid at this point. He let out like a yelp and slammed his door. It made me jump. And the kids looked at me and I looked straight at them and like every instinct that I had was telling me to run for it. I was almost home. I was just a couple of houses away. And I knew for a fact that my dad had left the door unlocked. So I could easily get away and get inside for safety.

The kids started coming closer. I could see them better in the light and I realized that they had no white in their eyes. It was just black. They slowly kept coming towards me. They didn't ask for anything. They didn't ask for help but they just looked confused and I was confused. I don't know why I didn't run and I feel stupid for saying this because I wanted to but I was compelled to stay. And then the tallest child was right in front of me. He was only a few inches shorter than me and I glanced down at him and in a startled moment, he stared back up at me and he was like, 'We have to use the phone.' And his voice was eloquent, I guess, would be the way I would describe it. He knew what he wanted and for being alone with a stranger at 1:00 AM he did not seem at all afraid. I said, 'I don't have one' and I kinda backed up because I didn't want to be that close to him but I still couldn't run even though I wanted to. Then he said. 'Please, can we come in and use the phone? We need to get a hold of our mom.' And like all my instincts told me to lie because, at this point, I don't think I could outrun them because they were right in front of me. They told me they needed to call their mom and I said, alright, my instincts were basically to lie. So I just said, 'I don't have a phone and I don't live on this street or any where near here, I'm sorry.' I could tell my voice was kinda shaking just because I was so nervous. Like, 'I'm in the same boat as you guys, my ride ditched me and I'm just walking until I find a phone too.' I figured that maybe they would like leave me alone if they believed that I had nothing. And it was not until around this time, this point in the night, when I kinda remembered something I had heard about the black eyed kids but I still kinda refused to believe it. But then, I also refused to help these children that were staring at me, standing there. You would think, harmless children, but I was just, I don't know, anyway, they were like, 'Please help us, we need to be let in.' I was like, 'I don't know, try another house or a pay phone. I have change if you want it.' And they were like, 'No, just forget it.' I was like, 'I'm sorry, I wish I could help.' They were just staring at me blankly.

I know I look younger than I appear, especially with my big hoodie. So I thought maybe they thought I was only like a teenager so they both kind of let me off. Then they both kind of nodded and stared and I as like, 'Okay, I have to go. Good luck' and I turned and walked in the direction that I came. Not running. And just kept thinking, they can smell fear, they can smell fear, they can, they can smell fear. So I walked. I did not reach for my phone. I just kept walking. And I must have walked like three or four blocks away from my street and I turned around and headed back and my heart was just pounding like crazy. I walked up my street cautiously, just looking for the kids. I didn't see anything until I reached the house again. The porch-light was still on and the man was standing there with the door open, the screen door closed, holding a baseball bat and he's like shaking. Our eyes met and I looked at him confused until I realized that I looked like one of those kids. That's why he was so scared because I was wearing a hoodie. I said, I called out, 'Did the kids leave?' And he was like, 'The ones you were with earlier?' And I kinda jumped back again, I said, 'The ones that were outside that talked to me for a few minutes and they wanted to call their mom, did they leave? Do you know if they left?' He was like, 'I watched them walk away earlier. I don't know, I feel uneasy and I won't let you in.' I was like, 'Okay, I have to go home. I don't need to be let in.'

So, anyways, I don't go to my dad's that often so it makes sense that he wouldn't recognize me in the dark. So I walked home and I got there safe. I locked the door. I sat in the kitchen for a long time. I was afraid to go in my room because there was a huge window in my room. I was just really afraid that somebody might be looking back at me through the window. The scary part was, the next night there was a knock at the door at like maybe 11:00 PM and I didn't answer because my father told me not to. He said it was late and it was probably no one we wanted to talk to. But I can't help but feel really uneasy about it even to this day, wondering if they had come back for me the next day.”

Daily 2 Cents: Huge 'Live' Flying Manta Rays -- Cannibal Slugs Invade Britain -- Bizarre Birthday

Huge 'Live' Flying Manta Rays

I recently received the following account:

Manta Rays in the Sky: 6 of them in a line with equal spacing. Judging the distance in relation to airliners coming to land at PHL (Philadelphia International), their width was 2 X's the length of an airliner! The coloration was a silver/blue with a glow to it. Their form of locomotion was quite strange. They had an erratic undulation from side to side. Almost like they were tacking thru a wild 'river' current. I was amazed they were able to propel themselves forward in this fashion, let alone stay aloft! Their speed was comparable to a small plane.

I watched them continue to travel east towards NJ for five minutes, till they got to small to watch. They appeared to be a real creatures. The only thing that bothered me was that strange color and glow. I wondered if their skin is excited by the sun. I had the feeling if you were directly under them, they could be translucent.

A note: I always thought there should be creatures living in the skies we know nothing about. Being translucent makes sense, for one of the reasons creatures are not seen more often. I waited almost 5 years to report this sighting. I wanted independent confirmation, but none was forth coming.

My location was central Bucks County, Pa. on the border with Montgomery County. JC

NOTE: This phenomena is definitely authentic...I've been documenting these sightings for several years. This is the first time multiple anomalies at one time have been reported to me. Lon


Bizarre Birthday

Nathan in Brooklyn Center in Cleveland, Ohio called in to tell his weird story:

“I want to tell you a quick little funny story about a timeslip I had. It was my little sister's 21st birthday. On the 7th of December, recently (2016). And now, no drinking involved. I had to drive. Don't worry, that wasn't part of the story but, it was time to get the cake from the downstairs refrigerator. I was relegated to that duty. I went downstairs, grabbed it, brought it back upstairs, put it on the counter and went about my business. I came back about 20 minutes later and I was getting chewed out by my family for not having got the cake. It turns out that my mom went down and got the cake although I remember everything about it specifically the plate it was on, the weight, carrying it up, everything. I had never seen it before. And they were convinced that my mom had gotten the cake and not me. And we argued about it for about an hour that night.”

Lively Entities Move Furniture, Turn Pictures

This brief post is from the 'St. Louis Post-Dispatch,' on May 7, 1908:

This is the latest from Alton, home of the nature fake and of the freakish and unusual. The furniture in the locked home of H.B. Sparks, a wealthy resident, was disarranged during a heavy storm, and the only explanation possible, neighbors say, is that "spirits were at work."

Mr. Sparks and his family discredit the spirit theory, but they are unable to offer any other.

While the family slept during the thunderstorm Monday night the pictures in the parlor were turned to the wall, the piano was set in the middle of the floor, chairs were overturned, a marble statuette was faced about and the bookcases were emptied of their contents.

Every window and outside door was securely locked when examination was made Tuesday morning, according to members of the family.

Right in the middle of the parlor floor was a copy of Shakespeare's "Tempest," open at the first scene of the fourth act, where this significant quotation occurs:

"Our revels now are ended. These, our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits
And are melted into thin air, like
The baseless fabric of the vision."


Cannibal Slugs Invade Britain

An amorous Spanish slug is invading Britain and mating with native species to create "superslugs" which threaten to ruin gardens and crops this summer, experts fear.

The six-inch long cannibal, which breeds at twice the pace of its British cousins, is immune to common control methods and can eat up 20 slug pellets without being harmed.

Known officially as the Arion vulgaris, it is classed in the top 100 invasive species in Europe and alongside crops they have been found eating dead mice, dog mess and even each other.

The slugs, which are believed to have arrived on salad leaves, were first spotted in the UK in 2010 but were wiped out by cold weather.

Now not only are they munching their way across the country, but it is feared that they are mating with native species to create "superslugs" which can survive in both hot and cold climates. Read more at Spanish cannibal slugs invading Britain and creating 'superslugs'

'Pteradon' Encounter Near Chicago 1969

Cryptozoologist and friend Ken Gerhard recently shared the following account with me. It details a flying cryptid encounter near Chicago in 1969. The report was included in his book BIG BIRD! - MODERN SIGHTINGS OF FLYING MONSTERS

An Illinois Sighting
(1969) Park Forest, IL

I along with four of my friends saw a pteradon about three to four feet tall through the body around April of 1969 as memory serves it might have been 1970.

I do recall we were riding in my friends 1969 Boss Mustang.

We were on a gravel road south of Park Forest, Illinois. A small suburb on the south side of Chicago. At that time there was nothing but country and farmland south of Park Forest. We were heading west on Stuenkle Road going to Monee, Ill.

We were in the valley a few houses west of were I used to live as a boy, I was like 17 or 18 years old. It was a foggy night, really thick blanket of fog close to the ground, as we started up the hill we emerged from the fog and it was a crystal clear night with a full or almost full moon and lots of stars.

We were driving along and my friend just slowed down and stopped the car. He leaned up over the steering wheel and stared at an angle out of the windshield.

I asked him what he was doing and he didn't answer me he just kept staring out the windshield, so I leaned forward and looked up and out of the windshield and silhouetted against the full moon, sitting on the top of a telephone pole was this pterodon.

The body was covered with fur like a bat, It had its wings folded up tight against it's sides and you could see little claws at the top of each folded wing.

It had a tail similar in length to that of a cat in comparison to the body size, but it was smooth like a rats tail except for a single tuft of hair at the very end.

As we sat there watching it, it was looking to the left and then to the right and then it would look off across the golf course to the north. The whole time it was switching it's tail around like a cat does when they are aggravated, very nervous movements. The neck and head were smooth leather like, no hair at all.

I don't know exactly how long we sat there watching it, probably only a few minutes but it eventually looked down at us in the car and then threw its head back opened its mouth, showing very impressive teeth and let out a blood curdling screech and with three flaps of it's wings did a half back over twist and sailed silently out over the field headed toward a large marsh south of our position and disappeared into the fog.

We were only 30 feet from the base of the phone pole and the pole was probably only 20 to 25 feet tall, so we were very close and got a real good look at the thing.

Over the years I have only shared this information with a few close friends and they treat me like I'm nuts. I am still friends with two of the guys I was with that night but we have never talked about what we saw that night.

Well that's my story. I hope it helps.
