Daily 2 Cents: Abducted by Insectoids...Scoop Marks & Lost Pregnancies -- Killer Says 'he ate humans' -- Ghosts at Offutt AFB

Abducted by Insectoids...Scoop Marks & Lost Pregnancies

Huntington Beach, CA: I actually think I have been getting abducted my whole life. I am 23 years old and things started getting weird when I was 7. They always happened in different ways, when I'm sleeping, or laying in bed or driving in car.

This last time I was sleeping and I thought it was a dream but waking up I was so panicked I'm pretty sure it wasn't.

I knew right away they weren't human because they had cricket faces with these tall muscular bodies and strange jumpsuits. The only way i could describe them was these metallic light light rose gold almost leather type material (but it wasn't) with an assortment of zippers and buttons (but they weren't that they just looked like that but they weren't from this earth).

I was walking down a dirt road and they were still talking among themselves but I didn't have enough time to run so I just laid myself down like a rug and buried my face in the dirt. I was so terrified and confused I just wanted to disappear.

They just walked up to me and one crouched over me and then I blacked out.

I seem to have these 2 perfectly round scoop marks that appeared on my back right calf leg.

I have encountered lost time, sleep paralysis, encountered lights in the skies, humming noises, sleep problems, medical problems, crazy electronic malfunctions, and a couple other symptoms. My problems with technology have gotten so bad that I actually have to get a new phone once a month since they keep breaking.

Ever since I was little only my room would get blackouts [except for when I was home alone then the whole house would get blackouts] it actually became such a regular occurrence I thought it was normal. The TV would never turn on the channel i turned it off on. I got this weird perfectly round puddle of water that appeared on my bed. I had something scratch the hell out of to the point that I was bleeding. Lights ALWAYS turn off when i go near them or take a while to turn on. I have always had incredible intuition too which seems to be connected with abductions. And strangest of all my boyfriend and I were almost completely sure I was pregnant 3 separate times, I had all the signs, symptoms and belly but then over night I wasn't anymore!

Another time my friend and i were driving down the freeway when we observed a lot of lights in the skies that were all different sizes about 3 groups large lights that looked like helicopters almost and medium and small lights that looked like stars and they started doing some crazy things. They would group up from largest to smallest in a straight light then they would get all mixed up and one would fly in front of the other covering it up. we experienced lost time, what should've been a 20 minute drive turned into an hour long trip.

For years now i have been having these horrific nightmares were I was with this big group of people we were standing on the beach and looking at the sky expecting like something to come to us. then these lights appeared almost like a milky way and then all of a sudden I'm up in space in a space ship (I think) I just remember gray walls almost like how space mountain at Disneyland looked! I could've sworn I remember seeing a control room area I dunno. but then the dreams turned horrifying these lasted for months and they were always slightly different but I was running through these black halls almost like a dark parking garage trying to escape monsters with a bunch of other people as well. and also just living in the space ship i think it was almost like a spacey hotel. the dreams are all mixed together but if you put them in sequence its like I lived there for a bit fine then things turned bad but they could just be dreams.

What panics me though is these scoop mark indentations. I have been researching other abduction marks and these look like them. You can very obviously feel the perfectly round indentations and there was absolutely no blood or damage when they appeared. something is wrong and I really need your help. - MUFON CMS


Killer Says 'he ate humans'

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A man who was hospitalized after authorities said he killed two people and attempted to kill another man, spit out a piece of human flesh, according to Martin County court documents.

“Help me, I ate something bad,” Austin Harrouff said at St. Mary's Medical Center, according to Martin County sheriff’s deputies.

“Humans,” Harrouff replied.

Harrouff, 19, faces two counts of second-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and burglary of a dwelling after sheriff’s investigators said he stabbed John Stevens III, 59, and Michelle Mishcon, 53, to death Aug. 15 at their home on Southeast Kokomo Lane.

The story made national headlines after authorities said they found Harrouff on top of Stevens, biting his face. Harrouff was arrested Oct. 3 and formally charged with the murders on Oct. 19, more than two months after the attack.

Harrouff was at St. Mary’s Medical Center for several weeks, Medical staff said he ingested some chemicals that he likely found in the garage where he killed the two victims.

When deputies found Harrouff at the scene Aug. 15, he was choking and biting Stevens in the driveway of the home, authorities said. One deputy ordered Harrouff off Stevens at gunpoint, and when a second deputy arrived, he used a Taser on Harrouff, but Harrouff wouldn’t let Stevens go.

The deputy said he kicked Harrouff in the head several times and he got off of the man for a minute, but immediately got back on him and began to chew his face again, according to the report.

Sheriff William Snyder told the media that Harrouff exhibited an extreme amount of strength.

A Tequesta K-9 officer arrived and deployed his dog who latched onto Harrouff and allowed law enforcement officers to handcuff him. After deputies were finally able to get him off Stevens, Harrouff yelled at the deputies, “(Expletive) kill me, (expletive) kill me, shoot me now, I deserve to die,” authorities said. - Accused killer told deputies he ate ‘humans'


Ghosts at Offutt AFB

Dark figures in rafters, others disappearing and walking through locked doors, and the distinct smell of cigar smoke … these are just a few of reported ghostly happenings at Offutt Air Force Base (Nebraska).

A number of buildings at Offutt have a rich history, among them is Building D, the former Martin Plant where a number of World War II bombers, including the Enola Gay, were assembled. The building now houses a number of different squadrons and agencies at Offutt.

Mike Little, who works in Building D with the 55th Support Squadron, said he hasn’t had many spooky experiences in Building D, but he has had a few.

“Sometimes we would have things at night, education and training in some of the classrooms and so I would be walking around down there,” Little said of the lower level of the building, where the Education and Training Center was formerly located.

Little said that often he would hear somebody walking behind him, the sound of the scuffing of shoes.

“Several times, something about it bothered me and I would stop to look back but no one was there,” he said.

Though Little said his own experience could be chalked up to nerves, others have reported seeing figures in a number of different areas.

In 1943, three crewmen on a test drive of a B-25 Mitchell bomber were killed when the bomber crashed through the roof of the building while on a test drive. A fourth crewman was critically injured.

“People have reportedly seen shapes walking around up in the rafters,” he said. “They’re shaped like people, but they’re more like these dark shapes.”

Aside from dark figures, many have reported seeing people in odd-looking uniforms walk past them in the building.

“We have a lot of different uniforms here at Offutt ... We’ve got Army, Marines, Navy, even foreign militaries here sometimes,” Little said. “It’s not uncommon to see a strange uniform. But in some cases, people will say something about the uniform strikes them as odd and they’ll turn around to say something, ask them what they’re doing here, and they’ll be gone.”

Building D has a number of tunnels underneath it, now abandoned and sealed off. One of the tunnels reportedly connects to another building rumored to be haunted: General Curtis E. LeMay’s former office, now home to the base’s legal offices.

Master Sgt. Rosie Bevel, who has worked in the building for the last six years, said she has noticed a few consistently odd things.
“I’ve smelled the cigar smoke in the stairwells,” Bevel said.

Rumors of the smell of cigar smoke have been circulating for years. General LeMay was known as an avid cigar smoker who enjoyed many puffs right in that very building.

The toilets on the second floor, the same floor LeMay’s former office sat, can often be heard flushing on their own in the men’s room.

“It’s always been at night when I’m by myself,” Bevel said. “My kids noticed it as well. They’re sensored toilets but it’s just weird.”

Aside from those consistencies, Bevel has also had a couple of unexplained experiences.

“I was sitting down and we were doing entry control point, which is where we monitor people entering the building,” she said. “There were some people in the conference room behind me and they had closed the door. I heard the door open and turned around. I was expecting them to come out but they didn’t. They thought I had opened the door.”

She hadn’t, and she said the door had not opened all the way, but was left partially open.

“You just got this weird feeling,” Bevel said. “It was the strangest thing.”

Another incident occurred as Bevel and a colleague were leaving the building one night around 8 or 9 p.m.
“There was a sign hanging in one of the hallways just swinging back and forth like somebody had hit it,” she said. “We just chalked it up to a breeze or something.”

A number of strange happenings are also rumored to have taken place in the communications building. Now home to the 55th Communications Group, the building is the former base hospital, built in the 1950s when the Fort Crook Hospital was torn down to make room for Building D.

“It was primarily one incident I had working there in the communication building,” said Donna Rush. “I was in the building by myself late at night. The building was pitch dark except for my little office. I was on my way back from the ladies room. I turned to my right and looked down the hallway, the exit signs kind of illuminated the path. At the very end of the hallway I saw this figure come out of an office door and go across the hall in to another door. I thought it looked like a younger person in a night shirt kind of thing. I turned around and kind of blinked my eyes and saw the same figure come from that door and it went back across into another door. All the doors were locked. I had heard the stories before, but when I saw that figure... it was very odd.”

Rush said her office mate had shared her own spooky experience with Rush when she first began working in the building.

“She had said, ‘Don’t stay late at night,’” Rush said. “She was sitting there once, working and our desks are separated by a tall partition, you can’t see over it.

“She was here alone and said by my side, by the window, she heard this sound like someone slapping on the desk, someone pounding on the desk. She said she just got up and left. It was like they didn’t want her there.” - Ghost stories abound at Offutt Air Force Base
