Phantoms in the Field

40-something year old Peter in Lakewood, Colorado called in to tell of a bizarre sighting he had seen many years earlier:

“This is a true story. It happened to me. Many many years ago I was in the ministry. I had taken my grandfather out for an evening sporting event. He lived in the country. And I took him back home around 11:30 or 12 o'clock when the sporting event ended. After taking him home, which was a farmhouse, I was coming down the country road and there was like a bend in the road and looking out my car window I saw something was stirring the horses out in the field. And those being our horses, I decided to park my car, just past the bend. I walk my way back to the bend, I started looking over the barb wire fence to see what was stirring the horses. And I started looking out towards the horses, I heard a rumbling in the leaves and the grass only a few feet in front of me. Kind of the moving of grass or the crackling of leaves. And as I looked... this is where everything started getting strange. As I looked into the weeds and the grass I saw sort of a vision of a man and a woman laying in the grass. And I thought to myself, oh this is stupid, you've walked on to somebody who wanted privacy in the middle of the night. I just couldn't cogitate what was going on.

As I looked again these two figures kind of shrunk. I don't know how else to say it but they just kind of shrunk. Literally this vision just kind of shrunk in size and became something black and white and furry and just ran right toward me. As it came right to me in the bend, there was a water pipe that runs, from the ditches, it runs under the dirt road. It went right into the ditch, into this drain, this drain pipe that goes under the road. I was very confused. I looked on at the end of this pipe that went under the road and as I looked further, two little hands emerged out and grabbed the edge of the pipe. And I kept on looking and out of this pipe came the face of a little boy and it was a greyish white ghoulish looking face and it had black fur all over where his hair was. He looked at me. I looked at him. It startled and he went, rustled back into the pipe. Well, I was afraid. I walked... I got confused. When you see something startling like that.

First of all it looked like, I walked into something. All of a sudden it shrunk. I got confused. I didn't know what it was. When I saw that little face come out and go back in, I headed back for my car. I got in my car, started it up and then I said to myself, hey wait a minute, you're a divinity student. You're a minister, there's nothing that can harm you. So I stopped, turned off the car, went back out there to the bend, got down on my knees and started praying. After I said a few prayers, I got up back up, got back in my car and took off.

The next day, I went to my grandfather and told him about what happened. He said I don't want to tell you what went on here. I want you to tell your father the same thing to see what he has to say. I went back and told my father, my father said that many years ago my father and grandfather were at the farmhouse. There used to be a little house, a small little one bedroom house right where that bend was and a woman had lost her child. And they had heard that she had turned to black magic to tried to have some kind of connection with her dead child. And one time they felt it while she was performing, they saw a fireball come out of her house, in front of her house, roll across the yard, roll across the gravel area, the road area in the bend, jump over the fence and roll around in the field right about where the horses were. I know it sounds like a fantastic story but it is a true story and what I think it was, what I saw in that pipe was the ghost of that little boy.”

NOTE: These incidents apparently occurred in the Lakewood, CO area...the same location of the 'Lakewood Lycan' encounter. Since JC and Jack started investigating the case, I have received several brief reports of paranormal activity in the same area. I wonder if there is an overall connection with the woman conjuring spells with black magic? This area was once part of the Southern Ute people's range before the Spanish disrupted things. There may be some custom information in the history of the tribal bands that may tie into the legends. Lon
