Faceless Shapeshifting Entity Observed on Cedar Lake, Indiana Farm

I recently received the following account from 'BR' in Indiana:

Hi Lon. I wanted to reach out to you from Cedar Lake, Indiana about an incident that I had which has left me and my kids quite rattled. Something really shocking to me happened very late on the 30th of October. I realized that I forgot to turn a light off in the barn while I was taking my dog out one last time around 2350 just before Halloween. I was making sure that she finished before I put her inside to go to the barn since we do have a lot of coyote here. I went around the corner of my house with the dog on a leash. It is basically pitch black beside the glow from a light in my daughter's room from her hermit crab tank, from what I can see. Below her room is a walkout basement with a small driveway with hills on either side of it. The dog and I are standing facing the direction about 20 feet before the first "hill" that goes down into the walkout.

I felt an icy cold feeling and not from the weather. It was windy and I stopped walking because I knew something was around. The dog started to bark in a very high pitched way and growling in between while trying to drag me towards the hill. I was trying to see but my brain was not making sense at all of what I was looking at. At first, I thought maybe a deer was standing on the hill. I could see an outline of something whitish and opaque but dull due to the lighting. I looked to adjust my eyes since I could plainly make out the window clearly. The area that I was trying to focus on began to look like static from an old TV. I thought maybe the street light from afar was giving off some white-ish light. Then I remembered that we had two streetlights on our driveway turned off about a month ago because my husband was going to install his own.

I saw this thing grow into something tall, lanky, and super skinny. It did not have a face at all. No face!! It had long darker things like flowing clothes or hair or something that was moving/flapping in the wind. It is hard to explain. I couldn't tell at first if it was standing on the opposite side of the hill or if it was in the driveway until it rose to the size of the window which would be the size of a second story. I felt so sick to my stomach.

It turned it's "head" and all that I could see was static-like darkness. I almost did a backflip with the dog back onto the deck and ran inside. I had to drag that dog with me. I was so afraid of what I saw. All that I could feel was ice cold and nausea. Ugh

I got back inside and just leaned on the wall because my heart felt like it was going to fly out of my chest. My son was in the kitchen and I told him what happened after I could talk. I honestly could not believe what I saw and I have seen a lot of crap. Once I could find my voice. I asked my son if he would please drive with me to the barn because I just saw something and I don't believe what I saw. I was afraid at that point to go alone. I explained what I saw. He said that he believes it may have been some kind of shapeshifting thing. I am not well-versed in that kind of thing. I have seen many, many things paranormal...but this sucker took the cake. I can't to this day get over what I visually saw before me. Anyway, my son and I got into the car right away from the front of the house (I live on a 20 acre farm) to go drive around back to the barn. We REALLY looked to see if we could find it again, but we didn't. BR

I got back to BR and asked her a few other questions:

Lon, all that I know is what I saw. It did not have a face and it grew larger right before my eyes. I honestly don't know. It looked like a deer at first bit it was dark. The dog was dragging me towards it, and I couldn't help but notice the static darkness surrounding it as it "grew". It had no face. No face!!! It turned its head towards me and the barking dog amd had no face. Just a darker hole?

I have never ever, ever encountered anything like that in all of my 45 years. I have a solid background of military, brief law enforcement, and medical certifications. I'm not crazy.

I just don't know what to make of it. I have to say that I get a little hesitant taking the dog out so late now. I normally can "feel' entities, etc. That part is not new to me. This was like a normal, calm setting completely changed in an instant. Once me son and I got into my car, I saw the time. 1205 am. So, it had to have happened right around midnight. He usually does not get very moved by odd occurrences. He is now 21 (November birthday). He asked my daughter to watch him go to the mailbox the next few days because it was dark and he seems to think that a shapeshifter thing only wants to do harm. Again, I am not well-versed in any of that. I am more scientific amd debunking before I make an assumption. I can remember seeing what looked like pieces of a long, cloak? flowing in the wind. It was very transparent and very static-like. Like snow from an old TV when we were kids. Just creepy to say the least.

I had told a friend about what happened. She posted something on my wall. It was an article with your name in it. This is why I reached out to you. I wondered why I didn't tell you any sooner after I read it. I just honestly am so busy with starting a farm, etc., that I just didn't think of it. There is a lot of history here where I live. The only thing different that week that happened was that someone spread ashes of two people in the "pet cemetery" by the barn because they had lived here previously. I am not doting on that fact, just wanting to advise. That happened on that Monday, and I believe Halloween was on a Thursday. It snowed as well later on Halloween. I just wish that my mind could make sense if it. That's the hardest part for me. The flowing gauze-like clothes of the finished product after it grew, and the lack of face makes me get the heebie jeebies. BR

Facebook event announcement: Dave Scott - 'Spaced Out Radio' Host / Bigfoot Experiencer - Arcane Radio

This week I welcome Spaced Out Radio host & Bigfoot experiencer Dave Scott to Arcane Radio. Dav is the creator and host of Canada’s ‘Spaced Out Radio’, running Monday through Friday nights at www.spacedoutradio.com. A former radio journalist, Dave graduated with a diploma in Broadcast Communications from one of Canada’s top Broadcasting Schools, BCIT, in 1998. Dave then spent nearly 10 years in radio, mostly working in sports, before leaving the field to pursue other interests. Dave’s personal quest into the unknown started in December of 2011, when he had contact from what he calls The Angel of Death, that he saw in his mother’s eyes, which led to his first channeling experience. After this incident, Dave’s personal experiences started becoming more frequent. Paranormal experiences. Premonitions started coming true. A Bigfoot sighting with two of the creatures within 100 feet of him. UFOs started appearing anytime he wanted, even though Dave had no idea what “summoning” was. Personal sightings of five extraterrestrial species, one who he’s nicknamed ‘Carl’. On November 30th, 2014, Dave launched ‘Spaced Out Radio’. Dave’s near decade as a journalist helped him craft his style of interview, making it comfortable and personal for his guests and listeners alike. He looks at himself as one of the only trained and experienced radio journalists, who is also an multiple experiencer of the unknown. - This will be an informative and entertaining show!
