Weekend 2 Cents: Tall Slender Black Beings Came Back For Me -- Great Prespa Lake Monster? -- Unsuccessful Abduction


Tall Slender Black Beings Came Back For Me

South Branch (Canada), NB - 3/21/2016: Entity seen at 5:00 am. We were awoken by our 7 month old son crying, we heard this on the baby monitor in our room.

As normal we got up to check on him, me to grab him and console him, my future wife to prep a bottle for him. I picked him up and as leaving the nursery, I looked down the stairs to my right, through the garage window, and saw a tall slender thin black entity, I know I saw it and as I looked at it it darted inhumanly quick, out of sight.

I went to the room with our son, my common-law partner had the bottle ready, I tried to get one of the 5 dogs to leave the room with me. 3 are ours. 2 German Shepherds, one chocolate Lab, plus the two that we are watching are my mother's. The dogs were too scared to leave the room which is unheard of. One of my mother's dogs also a German Shepherd left the room with me the others with any amount of coaxing would not move. As soon as we left the room, the Shepherd tucked its tail between its legs, and booked to the piano in the living room which it stayed under and trembled.

I would dismiss this as my mind playing tricks on me, however when I was 19 years of age, and I am 36 now I had an experience with a tall slender black, that has haunted me ever since. I don't talk about it as people are quick to judge and wont believe. I used to work then in Saskatoon, Canada, I worked at Wal-Mart of all places, and I worked in receiving, I also worked at a popular bar/restaurant.

Needless to say, I worked a shift in the city until midnight at Wal-Mart. The store was 4 city blocks from the residence at which I was staying. If you have ever worked there you punch your social security number into a computer at the back of the store, this starts your shift. I punched out after shift and was walking home, it was dark in the city but with the lights you could see very well.

I walked south 2 blocks down to McKercher and 8th street, where there was a Macs store, and Rogers video rental store at the time. I took a shortcut through the parking lot, directly in front of the Macs store, as I reached the sidewalk again by the Macs store, strangely I noticed an eerie absence of light, took two steps and heard a metallic sound as I walked. I looked around feeling stranger and noticed the city lights were gone. I could not see the store, there was only blackness.

I then heard a metallic cling twice from behind me coming from the ground. I spun around quickly to see an alien grey in colour with a triangular face, and black eyes. I was not panicked for some reason and said 'Hi.' The alien quickly shot out its arm and touched me with a finger on my chest. I was not scared until this point, as the finger touched me there was an electric-like charge I could feel. This charge paralyzed me and I felt forced fear. Every nerve ending in my body reverberated with this shock, and the fear I felt did not come from me but felt forced, and it was 1000 times worse than any I had ever felt. The fear was at such a level that my heart pained instantly, and I had to focus quickly and steadily at slowing my pulse as I didn't think my heart would be capable of sustaining my life otherwise.

The next thing I knew I woke up on a metallic rectangular table, with 6 seven to eight foot tall thin tall black beings standing around me, Dear God, one had its hand inside of me. It felt like it was tearing me apart. The pain I remember, and the forced fear still there, still paralyzed, trying desperately to move. The entity towering above me went through my entire body. It felt like it was tearing me apart and putting me back together again, unimaginable pain. I blacked out. The next thing I knew, I wake up, it's all black and I'm on a metallic floor. I hear clinging on the floor. I see 4 of these tall black entities. They begin kicking me, hurting me more. I try to move I'm still paralyzed, the fear so severe it runs through every nerve ending in my body. It's forced and I can't fight it, almost electrical. I feel I'm going to die here, I don't want to die here. No dear God no. I begin to grow angry as I get beat. I look in my mind and struggle with all I have trying to move to be able to do anything. I force a little bit of movement, I move an arm, my body still not cooperating. It takes everything I have but dammit I'm dying here fighting. I swing the rest of me unable to move and I hit one of the entities, then the fear even stronger the paralysis even stronger. My body goes limp, trapped in my body scared and unable to move, I black out.

The only thing I remember next is waking up in bed at home, trembling and convulsing uncontrollably, still paralyzed and still the forced fear. I try to move, I cant. My heart, the pain its unbearable. My heart feels its about to explode, my body feels like its vibrating from my heart beating so fast. I focus with all I have I don't want to die. I try to calm my heart slow it down, it work. I try to move, it feels like for 4 hours, God only knows. I'm still paralyzed, still that damned fear. Finally I break free. I go upstairs, my mom looks shocked to see me, tells me I was missing for 3 days. Thought I was at a friend's. In my mind I was missing no time at all. I thought I had a nightmare, I tell myself a dream. Not so lucky. I check the computer at work it shows I was there. No one at work remembers me being there, they tell me I missed my shifts. What has the power to do this, no one remembered me for 3 days. The only thing that tells me I wasn't insane was the computer. My memory has me missing for a day. I saw that damnable thing again tonight. I loaded the guns and I sit and wait for daylight. I last saw it when 19, am 36 now. My memories of it used to be so bad I'd remember pieces over the years. I would wake up paralyzed in a sweat, and terrified. I fought the fear in my mind until I could remember and not go into convulsions, still function still move. I would have dismissed what I saw tonight but I've seen it before. No one believes, no one cares. There is no help for me to be had just felt I needed to write this, not sure why they came back. - NUFORC

Unsuccessful Abduction

Seattle, WA - 2013-05-31: I lived in Seattle, not far from the Sound, in a somewhat quiet suburban neighborhood, the Ballard area. This was a few years ago, I was probably eleven or twelve at the time. I was playing with a few of the neighbor kids and my little brother outside. It was a warm sunny day, at some point during summer break. We were playing chase when suddenly all of us got scared, I'm not sure why. There was a whirring sound, kind of like wind. A faint shadow was cast over the yard, but I didn't see anything that seemed to be casting a shadow. We started to run, but my brother fell behind us. An invisible force suddenly pulled him across the ground 5-10 feet backwards before it left him. I don't know for sure, but I think this may have been an unsuccessful attempt to abduct my brother. - MUFON

Great Prespa Lake Monster?

Footage captured the moment what appears to be a huge sea creature in the Great Prespa Lake – a massive body of water shared by Albania, Greece and Macedonia.

The viral video shows “Nessie” poking its long neck out of the water before ducking back down.

Many viewers have been wondering whether the mythical beast has gone on holiday away from its usual home in Scotland’s Loch Ness.

And it could even be a trip it’s made before as a similar giant sea creature was spotted in the Greek section of the lake five years ago. Read more at Mystery ‘sea creature’ spotted in freezing lake

America's 'Body Harvest' Industry

Sam Kazemi stood over the old man's corpse. Nearby lay pliers, a scalpel and a motorized saw designed to cut drywall and pipe.

On a busy day, Kazemi might harvest body parts from five or six people who had donated their bodies to science. On this day in November 2013, the corpse before Kazemi typified the donors who gave their remains to his employer, Biological Resource Center.

The man was a retired factory worker with a ninth-grade education. He had lived with his wife in a mobile home in Mohave Valley, Arizona, and had died six days earlier, aged 75. His name was Conrad Patrick.

But after he died and his body was donated, Patrick became a commodity, known by the company's initials and a number: BRC13112103.

Reuters reviewed thousands of internal BRC records and confidential law enforcement documents containing profiles of Patrick and 2,280 other donors. The documents include invoices and inventories for thousands of body parts harvested from those people. They show how their bodies were dissected, which body parts were sent where, and why buyers obtained them.

Unexplained Disappearances


“My older brother moved down there after he got a job at Cadbury's chocolate factory in Birmingham. A work colleague told him that story as it was well-known at the time as the "Disappearing Jaguar" story. Apparently, the police officers involved never once changed their story, even years later, but, a witness had come forward some 25 years later but had wanted to be kept out of it at the time. He now had to have a high risk surgery and felt he had to say what he had seen, in case anything happened to him while he was being operated on and wanted the truth to be told. The witness said that the car hadn't "vanished", but that the officers had approached the car and were just about to knock on the window when a bright golden white light burst out of the car through every window. The witness had turned away at that second as he thought his girlfriend had called to him as he was due to meet her. As he turned back because she wasn't there, he saw the 2 officers stood frozen to the spot, not moving, and the car then slowly drove away. After about 1½ minutes, the officers suddenly "re-animated" and carried on as if the car was still going to be there. They looked stunned, shocked and shaken, and as he watched them from the corner he got scared. The witness was really frightened and since this had happened to police men, he thought better about getting involved and walked away minutes later after his girlfriend finally arrived. This was just one of dozens of weird stories that this guy told my brother, and my brother subsequently told me, as he knew things like that scared the crap out of me.

AS A SIDE STORY: This guy was into paranormal stuff, before it became popular. My brother said that this colleague (Who I think was named Jim, Jeff, George, Graham??) who told the stories was always on time, never late, never had a day sick, and had to be made to have his holidays. After 13 years of working with him and just taking his stories as "bits of fantasy", he got very uncomfortable and weirded out one week by him. He told my brother that he had got the feeling that someone was permanently shadowing him, like a ghost was stood next to him or something, and that he was being followed whenever he went anywhere. He told anyone and everyone who would listen and all just thought finally all these stories were getting to him.

Three days later on the Thursday the guy didn't turn in for work and everyone knew something just must be wrong. They tried phoning him several times but the phone was off the hook. The tried the operator who said that the line was connected to another number and that that number was 999, (England's equivalent to Americas 911 Emergency number). She cleared the line and tried to connect them, but the phone was dead. After hearing this, a decision was made that someone should go to his home and see if everything was alright. Three hours later they came back saying they were totally freaked out - by nothing! Two had gone, a woman from personnel, and this guy's immediate boss. They walked to his front door and as they knocked, the door opened. They called out to him, but no response. They walked in expecting to see a body, but there was nothing. The house was neat and tidy. The phone was off the hook and on the floor, but apart from that and the half eaten plate of food on the table, knife and fork still stuck in to a piece of chicken, and one curtain in his living room being half open, while the other was closed, that was it. They checked the whole house for him but zilch! His toothbrush and paste were still in the bathroom. There was a load of washing finished in the machine, but not taken out to dry. His clothes were all still there, nothing was missing.

A neighbor had seen them come in and was now at the door with two policemen thinking they were robbing the place. Explanations were made, calls made and the police then took a missing persons report. This was then the next door neighbor commented that at about 8.15 p.m. the previous evening, when she was watching TV she was disturbed by a bright light coming through the curtains. She ignored it, thinking it was the police helicopter, but then she realised, she hadn't actually heard a helicopter she just assumed because of the fields at the back of the houses, the police were looking for someone, and that they had caught him because she had heard a "sort of a scream but not really a scream", some 3 or 4 minutes later, and thought whoever had been apprehended. Just after that, the lights disappeared and she carried on watching TV.

This guy was never seen again. The police did checks on all flights, ferry's, even coaches and bus companies in an effort to find him, but there was no trace. He had simply vanished off the face of the earth. The cops traced the few friends he did have, but none had seen him since the previous Sunday afternoon when they had all met for Sunday dinner at their usual pub. In roughly 18 years he had never missed a Sunday lunch there, as it was also the weekly meeting for the "Anything Odd" group. They looked in to UFO's, alien sightings, strange occurrences etc etc. Hope this helps."

These accounts remind me of the The M6 and Paris 'Paranormal Crash' incidents. I have been keeping an eye on these cases for over 7 years. I received the following update in late August 2017:

Lon,

I've been turning up some interesting new evidence and this is helping in trying to unravel this mystery.

Firstly that domain name is strange in as much that is actually does nothing and appears to have no reason to exist, what's even stranger is this info:

https://www.whois.com/whois/1of26.com

I am looking into this at the moment as the street does exist in Manchester but there doesn't appear to be a link to Colin Luigi.

I've been doing some more digging and looked at the 1of26 Twitter feed again, but it appears to be all manner of dead ends so I'm not sure what to make of it. John Titor and Ronald Mallett are named in it though and both of these names are linked to time travel.

Titor appears to be a fictitious character from a few years ago however Mallett is the real deal - he's a top US physicist:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2016/07/05/meet-the-scientist-on-a-quest-to-reunite-with-his-dead-father/

I've managed to clean up the sound on this interview and you can clearly hear the suspects name being confirmed as Steve Garner - he does that after 25 seconds.

It also confirms that Garner was in the morgue and it also confirms he was tampering with dead bodies - something that Mark Collins wrote about in one of his reports.

http://markcollins1.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/paris-crash-latest-man-held-amid-body.html

1 min 34 seconds - the policeman confirms that doctors have never seen that device before.

https://itstimeforanswersblog.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/interview-with-sound-of-the-main-suspect-caught-in-paris-linked-to-the-m6-paranormal-crash/

This is the first real evidence I have to confirm a potential suspects name to another piece of evidence and also to Mark Collins' reports.

As you can imagine I am now working on the other files to see if they turn anything up.

But to have confirmation that Mark Collins' appears to be right after all these years is a major breakthrough.

Thanks, Time For Answers

As well as the following email:

Hey Lon,

This is SG from the UK, a long time blog reader and enthusiast of your site! I hope you're doing well and can remember that we have corresponded before about the multiple vehicle freeway pile up some years back on the M6 motorway in England that had mysterious elements to it and also linked to a similarly weird vehicle crash in Paris, France. Later there was an investigation by Mark Collins, but the trail went cold. There were intriguing hints of time travel and ''other dimensional'' elements to the story as well.

Another investigator, calling himself ''Time For Answers'' emerged and I updated you about him. Now, about a year since I last heard from him, I received this email (posted above), which is self explanatory. I've listened to the new video, but my computer can't pick up any meaningful dialogue. Perhaps you can do better..

You will see at the end that he asked me to forward his email on to you. I don't know if you can make anything of it, or even have any continuing interest in this story, but I can't get this odd event out of my mind and still hope it may lead somewhere at sometime...like the Todd Sees case which is also endlessly fascinating.

All the best to you, SG

Strange Sounds and Lost Time

Huntingdon, UK - 2009-05-31: I was fishing at the end of May beginning of June 2009. Where I was fishing was the middle of nowhere the odd farm but no shops or pubs. I settled down for the night about 1:30 / 2am in my bivvey / tent when a strange thing happened. I heard like a chitter-chattering (talking but loads of voices at same time). I couldn't make out what was being said but it scared the crap out of me. My brother was in the next swim so I went to see if he knew what it was but I couldn't move for the life of me. It was like I was frozen to my bed chair. I couldn't shout or anything. I've never felt like this ever before or after. It was like time had flashed by as the next thing I remember it was 6am and was just getting light.

Now I have started to have dream like flash backs and see things I cannot explain. The main vision is of a 3-fingered hand pointy finger like a lizard claw. But the strange part is what would be the palm of the hand is an opening with tiny wiggley things going all the way around it !!! And more recently I've started seeing an eye. It's jet black teardrop shaped and like a greenish brown skin tone. I don't know if this is linked, but me and my Mrs were trying for another baby since 2005 without joy then my partner fell pregnant within two weeks of this happening and my babe was born with a rare genetic disorder (only 80 case in UK). I don't know if it's anything to do with this or not. In fact I don't even know if anything really happened to me. But it is playing in my head. I don't drink or do drugs. I don't think I'm going mad but do sometimes wonder. Any help or advice would. Be great please. Anon carp fisherman - MUFON

Man Rigged Front Door to Electrocute Pregnant Wife

A Palm Coast man rigged the front door of his home with wiring attached to a car battery charger in an attempt to electrocute his pregnant wife, Flagler County Sheriff’s investigators said.

Michael Wilson, 32, is accused of trying to kill his wife after he attached electrical devices to the inside of the deadbolt lock and the door handle of their Palm Coast home, according to a charging affidavit. The ploy, which could have easily led to her death, was to have her insert the house key and then grab the handle, completing the circuit and sending a jolt of electricity through her arm, chest and heart.

Fortunately for Wilson’s wife, who was in Knoxville, Tennessee with family at the time, she never took a hold of that door knob. Her stepfather, Jon Flositz, became suspicious after she told him Wilson had warned her not to let a child touch it. Flositz went to examine the house with his wife, Alissa, and they found the word “Hi” and a drawing of two eyes in what appeared to be lipstick on the back sliding door, according to the deputy’s report.

Be Wary Of Who You Help

'The hits keep on a comin' Sigh. Another hit-piece in reference to the Chicago sightings has surfaced. This time from Allison Jornlin, who was producing YouTube videos on the sighting locations and directly quoting the reports from Phantoms & Monsters on the video. I allowed the videos to be linked to the interactive map...which, of course, she also cashed in on through YouTube. I also took the time to participate on her podcast. I was just trying to be a nice guy. Allison was allowed to participate on the Chicago Phantom Task Force Facebook messenger thread...that is until I removed her for demanding that I give her witness information and for other statements and actions on the thread that were unbecoming of an investigator. After that, she began a campaign to discredit the Chicago sightings...all in an attempt to garner notoriety as a skeptic. It's also interesting that the push-back from her other associates kicked into full gear as soon as my book was released. The vindictiveness in the paranormal community is shameful...and will continue until the hacks are exposed. Mothman Problems: An Interview with Allison Jornlin. (NOTE: the witnesses who contacted me were independently verified by a well-known & respected paranormal investigator. There are others on the task force who will confirm this. Lon)
