'Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids' Available at Amazon

Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids- now available on Amazon.


The presence of strange winged beings is probably as old as the human imagination. In the late Summer of 2011, reports of Mothman-like flying humanoids began to surface in the city of Chicago. After three brief sightings, there were no further accounts. Then unexpectedly in early 2017, a smattering of encounters emerged from different locations throughout the Chicago metro area; until the number reached near fifty sightings before the end of the Summer. Why Chicago? Why now? This book will examine the witness accounts and the investigators thought processes, as these incidents were brought to our attention. The sightings continue… but we are determined to find the truth.

Strange Holiday Activity

The following account was forwarded to me by a reader in 2010:

Mr. Strickler - I wanted to tell you about a few strange incidents I experienced several years ago during the holiday season.

I am a collector of vintage Christmas ornaments and have done so for over 30 years. The day after Thanksgiving, I received a telephone call from a local auctioneer who had just received a consignment that included several rare handmade ornaments. The next week, I attended the auction and was delighted after obtaining several of these fine pieces at very reasonable prices. One ornament in particular stood out from the rest. It was a porcelain figure of a St. Bernard dog, hand-crafted in pre-WWII Poland

Each Christmas, I select my favorite ornaments from my collection to display on my tree. I was very proud of the recently obtained St. Bernard dog ornament and wanted to show it off to my friends and family.

One morning last week, I noticed that the ornament had fallen from the tree and was laying on the carpet. The string that attached it to the tree branch was not tore and I felt fortunate that it had not broken. I just placed it back on the tree.

That evening, I was sitting in the living room reading a magazine when I started to hear a 'ringing' sound coming from the tree. It was like a the sound of a porcelain bell. The sound lasted for a few seconds then suddenly stopped. About an hour later, the ringing sound started again but this time it was a bit louder and lasted for almost a minute. I looked at the tree but could not tell where the sound was coming from. I just assumed it was coming from outside the house.

That night, I was laying in bed asleep (around 11:45 pm) when I thought I heard heavy footsteps coming down my upstairs hallways towards my bedroom. I got up, looked around the house and rechecked the intruder alarm. I was in the kitchen checking the outside door when I heard footsteps rapidly going up the stairs to the second floor. I live alone, so I was very concerned. I called 911 just to be safe.

The police looked around the property to make sure it was safe. I live in a small community where everyone knows everybody else's business, so anything out of the ordinary is common knowledge the next day. The police assured me that they would not make a report. They soon left and told me to call back if I noticed anything unusual. I thought that was an odd statement but I appreciated their concern.

I walked up the stairs and turned towards my bedroom. As soon as I got to the bedroom door I noticed it. The St. Bernard ornament was on my nightstand. Now I was freaked out. I have never experienced any paranormal activity though I love to read about these things. Now it was happening to me.

I picked up the ornament, walked downstairs and placed it back on the tree. I looked at it for a minute or two and then noticed that two other ornaments were missing. I looked on the carpet but nothing was there. After looking around for several minutes I decided to go back to bed and look again in the morning.

The next morning, I woke and walked downstairs. I entered the living room and immediately noticed that the St. Bernard ornament was missing from the tree - but the two ornaments that were missing the night before were back on the tree. I looked all over the house, but the ornament was gone.

It has been almost a week and the St. Bernard ornament is still missing, but there has been no further activity since it disappeared. I cannot explain any of this. Are you familiar with this type of activity? I hesitate to speculate what is going on and really don't want anybody coming into my house to investigate.

If the ornament returns, I will notify you. Please feel free to publish my story if you like but I would appreciate anonymity. Thank you.

NOTE: As far as I know, the St. Bernard ornament never resurfaced. Lon

Astronomers are set to scan an 'alien' comet for signs of extraterrestrial technology.

The cigar-shaped asteroid, named 'Oumuamua by its discoverers, sailed past Earth last month and is the first interstellar object seen in the solar system.

A team of alien-hunting scientists, led by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, will scan the comet this week before it sails beyond the reach of Earth's telescopes.

They say they are looking for radio signals, claiming the mysterious visitor could be an alien spaceship. Read more at Has an alien probe entered our solar system? Cigar-shaped interstellar 'comet' Oumuamua is being investigated for signs of extraterrestrial technology

Painful Abduction Experiments

Eminence, KY - 2017-12-11: Sleeping at home, aliens entered my home and took me. I did not see outside of craft but very large inside. Aliens appeared to be humanoid but looked like an apparition. I was pissed, they regularly ruin my sleep. In my mind they call me a '1957 baby.' They used our date because they have a different understanding of time which I can’t grasp. The f**kers experiment on me and it really hurts. I have learned much and have been threatened by phone from some group to keep my mouth shut, but I have to tell someone - MUFON


Taken While Asleep

West Columbia, SC - 2017-12-07: I was asleep, and then I could feel something around me. I slowly opened my eyes, everything was very blurry and I could see three figures. One was standing directly over me, looking at a big wall of different colored lights in front of me. As I open my eyes and saw the figure standing above me. I felt thrown back and then I was back in my bed. I could not move my body and I looked around the room with my eyes. I tried to open my mouth and call my girlfriend who is laying next to me. The only thing I could make was a small sound. Then my eyes shut and I was back asleep. She can confirm that I made a weird noise that night. The next day we saw on the news that there were several unidentified flying objects over Lexington County. - MUFON
