Red-Eyed Winged Humanoid Encountered by Cicero, Illinois Family

A Cicero, Illinois family encountered a winged humanoid flying from a tree in front of their home in July 2018. There are interesting aspects to this sighting that need to be investigated further.

I recently received the following information:

"On July 3, 2018, at 11:30-12:30 AM In Cicero, Illinois, my family and I were coming home from a fireworks show in Riverside, Illinois. This occurred in a residential area in the vicinity of W. Ogden Ave. and S. Austin Blvd.

We were getting out of the car two houses down from our house making our way to the front of our front yard. We had a really big tree in front of our house. My wife and my youngest daughter were still by our car, my middle and oldest were with me under the tree. The whole tree started to shake. My two daughters and I were right under the tree. I said 'what the hell' and my two daughters stopped and looked at me and said what was that. I looked up right away to make sure nothing was going to fall on me. As I looked up whatever it was jumped out of the tree and flew up between my house and my neighbors.

It was a clear and bright sky I don’t remember if it was a full moon but the sky was not dark. What I saw looked like the pictures of the Chicago Mothman. My two daughters saw it and they moved towards me and said, 'did you see that?' I had my pocket knife out and told my wife a daughter 'get inside now!' My oldest and middle daughters saw it as well. My youngest and wife said they saw the tree shake.

Two weeks later we saw that the large branch on the tree was dead and it fell on its own. The tree just keeps losing its branches until it was cut down two days ago (10/25/2021). Before this incident, the tree was healthy and really thick with leaves." RR

NOTE: The witness called me on 10/28/2021. His description was of a 5-6 foot tall, thin dark-colored humanoid with wide wings that were shaped like those of a bat. He could see through the membrane wings because of the street lights. He also noticed the feet of the winged being were shaped like those of a chicken, long three-toed and splayed. The toes had been wrapped around the tree branch. There was enough street lamp light in order for the witnesses to observe the creature while in the tree. His daughter stated that when the winged humanoid was flying away, it looked back and she noticed that it had red eyes.

After the city recently removed the dying tree, the witness decided to contact me in regard to the incident. This is the first time that I can recall that any living plants or trees may have been affected by these winged humanoids.

The witness RR also recalled an incident that he remembers while living in Moca, Puerto Rico for 3 years. This occurred several years ago when RR had to move to Puerto Rico while he was 16-19 years old. He had lived all his life in Chicago except for those 3 years. He said that there was a rash of bizarre incidents in and around Moca, what people referred to as 'la Chupacabras.'

He and a friend had a personal encounter with a winged humanoid that he states looked somewhat similar to what the locals called 'la Chupacabras' at the time. The one major difference was that it had a large open mouth that was red in color. He watched it fly towards and maneuver under the nearby houses that were on stilts. RR also mentioned that there were many incidents of chickens and other fouls found dead and absent of blood. Earlier incidents in Moca were referred to as being caused by 'El Vampiro de Moca.'

So, could there be a connection in some roundabout way? It may warrant further investigation. Lon

Stories From The Creepy Outdoors

3 separate creepy accounts from the outdoors. From Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Missouri. Do you have any strange and unexplained stories? Feel free to forward it to me.

I recently came across the following accounts:

"So I started hunting with my friend in far eastern, Oklahoma about 13 years ago. He has had a 1000 acre at least for the last 35 years. It is within a greater 12K acre ranch. In the "Old Days" the area that is now his lease and the rest of the ranch used to be an area where back in the early 1900s felons would hide out from the law. Basically moving around the thick hilly wooded oak stands while running from the law. Since he has had the lease since the mid '70's he has had very little problem with trespassers. When he is at the lease by himself and not in the deer stand he wears his .357 on his hip.

Keep in mind that the first year I hunted with him on his lease I was engaged to his daughter and just out of college. The thick, very dark, and somewhat spooky woods at night were very new to me as I was born, raised, and still reside in Orange County, CA.

The night before the deer rifle season opener we are sitting in his deer camp in the cook tent where we also relax and enjoy the fire. He begins to tell me of a story that goes like this:

It was about 10 years prior and he is at deer camp by himself coming out of the woods from the morning hunt. As he is walking he smells the very distinct smell of frying bacon very close by. He said he waited for several minutes and continued to smell the bacon as if were very close. Now, he knows every inch of his 1000 acre lease like you would know every inch of your own bedroom. He heard no movement in the thick layer of oak leaves on the ground. It seemed to really bother him so he decided to go back to camp and retrieve his pistol and shotgun rather than dealing with someone with his 3 shot deer rifle. When he went back to the exact spot where he smelled the bacon he smelt nothing. He searched everywhere on that section of his lease and found nothing. Not even a camping spot where someone may have been cooking bacon. Nothing, not a hint of anyone. The place where he smelled the bacon could not have come from another part of the ranch or any adjoining lease or land, just too far off to drift that far. Needless to say, it wasn't the best thing to hear before my first morning out in the woods.

He also told me of several encounters with trespassers by other hunters when he first got the lease. Told me that the confrontations grew fairly intense until he pulled his .357 out of his holster that was hidden by his parka. Many other crazy stories of places on his lease that he gets all weird when he tells me the stories. Places on his lease that he will absolutely not go into or hunt no matter how big the buck he saw near there. Seems to me that he feels that it is/may be haunted by Native American "spirits/things/whatnot". BB

"In the early '90's I was in high school and got invited to go on a 3-day canoe/cave exploring trip with some of my friends. They were 2-3 years older and had more canoeing/cave experience than me, so I was honored that they invited me to go along. There were 6 of us and we were going to float down the Eleven Point River in Missouri and explore any caves that we found along the way. I had floated the river quite a bit (I lived only a couple of miles from it as the crow flies) but I had never been on a multi-day trip. We usually would to a day trip with relatives or friends that would come to visit in the Summer.

We made camp the second night a little ways back from the river among the trees. It was a fairly open area with scattered trees and knee-high grass. We made a fire, cooked and ate dinner and we're all about to go to sleep when we heard something walking towards our camp. As we shined our flashlights in the general direction that the sound was coming from we saw a large, dark shape just at the edge of the light. It was a round-ish form, about waist high and its eyes glowed red. It was only there for a few seconds and then it ran off.

All six of us were pretty spooked at that point. We stoked the fire until it was probably visible from space and all started fashioning spears out of saplings. We never saw or heard whatever it was again that night and we eventually fell asleep.

Later on, we learned that there were feral hogs in that area and I'm pretty sure that's what it was. The only thing that doesn't quite fit is the eye-shine. I've done quite a bit of feral hog "management" at night and I'm pretty sure that their eyes don't shine red. As I'm typing this, I'm considering that it might have been a black bear. I'm not sure what their eyes look like at night and back then no one in the area ever talked about seeing any bears. Nowadays there are about one or two reports a year of bear sightings.

Looking back on our "encounter," it strikes me as funny how we were tough and macho boys until we saw the "thing." I'm also not exactly sure what we're going to do with our spears either." HH

-----

"I was in the Snowy Range camping with a friend in a group of lakes called the Gap Lakes, Wyoming. We were testing our ability to go lighter and just took a sleeping pad and tarp for shelter. The first night was rainy and miserable and I didn't have the best spot picked out as I was on a slight incline and kept sliding off my sleeping pad downhill.

The second night was better and we moved camp a little further uphill into a small clearing where we both could have a flat spot for sleeping. This spot was about 100-150 yards from the lake where we had been fishing all day and pulled a few trout out of for dinner. We had a couple trout leftover that we were going to cook up for breakfast and left them on the stringer in the lake since the water was still extremely cold since we were up over 11,000 feet and there was still plenty of snow feeding it. When we decided to put out the fire and head to bed I had this uneasy feeling that something was around watching us and studying us. My friend said he felt it as well. We both were armed with .45's and had them near should anything creep us out for the night. I didn't sleep well that night either as I felt something was near for quite a while. I heard a few rustles of leaves and some twigs breaking but no growls or any other animal sounds.

When the sun finally came over the 12,000-foot peak in the morning I was happy the night had ended. After putting on our boots and jackets we headed down to start up the campfire and cook up our trout. When I went to pull the trout out of the lake I found the rope stringer had been pulled out of the water and there was no sign of the trout. This area of the lake was pretty rocky so it was hard to check for any tracks. But the rock the stringer was tied to hadn't moved so whatever it was eating the trout right off the rope. That at least verified I knew something was around us that night. Not extremely creepy but at least I was aware and ready.

The story of my mom has always creeped me out and I had only messed with a Ouija board once or twice before hearing that story. I never had any luck getting it to move so I'm thankful I didn't get any names to come up. If I had and the name matched the one she gave me I would have freaked. Needless to say, I never touch those things and never will." S

God’s Celestial Ambassador: The Life and Times of Dr. Frank E. Stranges - Part XIV

 

God’s Celestial Ambassador: The Life and Times of Dr. Frank E. Stranges - Part XIV

By Raymond A. Keller, PhD, a.k.a. “Cosmic Ray,” the author of the international awards-winning Venus Rising Series, published by Headline Books and available on Amazon.com, while supplies last.

Earth’s Water Canopy:  Ancient and Future

Dr. Frank E. Stranges, being an advocate for creationism over evolution, believed that the Book of Genesis was a literal account of God’s formation of the Earth and all the life that He placed upon it, to grow and multiply, thereby each form fulfilling the measure of its existence within the context of its own species.  Because the evangelist believed every word in that first book of the Bible, this meant that he accepted its account of a “water canopy” that once existed over our planet, before it fell down into the oceans at the time of the Great Flood, greatly expanding them in the process.  

The Southern California evangelist explained the “water canopy,” as found in the Book of Genesis, in the following manner:

“The Bible tells us plainly, there was a great ring of water or ice canopy all around the atmosphere.  In Genesis 1:7, we read that, ‘God made the firmament….  the air, or the atmosphere, and divided the waters on Earth from the firmament, or the ring of ice (water) above the firmament (atmosphere).  God called the firmament Heaven, and God called the dry land Earth.’  

“Job tells us that the sky was a beautiful blue at all times- no storms, cyclones, tidal waves, not even clouds.  For 1,650 years, it never rained.  A mist went up and watered the face of the ground in Genesis 2:6. The great ice canopy melted and fell and the first rainbow appeared in Genesis 9:13.  Before the flood, the light from the Sun was as even and as perfect as God made it and the climate was cool, and the temperature the same all over this planet.  Think of it, at that time, 1/7th of the Earth was covered with water.

“Today,” continued the evangelist, “75 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water.  The flood raised the sea level three miles.  The present land surface is only about 65 million square miles.  When the ice-canopy will be restored to where it was, there will be ‘no more sea’ (Revelation 21:1).”

As Dr. Frank E. Stranges explained it, “The New Earth will have an area of three miles below the present sea level, and then that will give us 200 million square miles of dry land on the exterior, the outer portion of this planet Earth.  The canopy is going to be restored (Revelation 12:13).  Because of the dense canopy of water, a person will be able to look directly at the Sun.  The Bible tells us in Revelation 6:12-13 that, ‘The Moon will appear as blood and the stars of the heavens will cease to shine.  The very sky will roll up like a scroll.’  Isaiah 34 tells us, ‘The stars shall fade;’ and Revelation 6:14 reveals that, ‘The present heavens and Earth with the stars will depart as a scroll all rolled up together.’

Dr. Stranges also pointed out that the Apostle Peter said, “I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth;” and the Apostle John declared, “I see a New Earth.”  The evangelist also emphasized that in Ecclesiastes we read, “The Earth abides forever.”  Insofar as Dr. Stranges was concerned, “Christ is the LORD, and being all powerful, He created the world and the entire universe.  He laid the foundation of the Earth, not to ever be removed.  He covered the Earth with water as a garment.  And as we read in Psalms 104:5, ‘The water stood above the mountains.’

“Waterspouts are acting at the command of God.  He is going to command them to spring up from the ocean, rivers and streams to join together in the sky again, forming a curtain or canopy over the planet.  Read Psalms 42:7, which explain that, ‘The deep was called by the above and the ocean below, and the noise of thy waterspouts, all thy waves and billows are gone over me.’  And in Revelation 18:17, ‘For in just the time of one-hour, great riches shall come to naught.  Every shipmaster and every sailor (all companies), and as many as trade by sea, as many as stood afar off, cried unto the heavens when they saw the smoke and the fog, the steam and the vapor.  They cast dust on their heads and they wailed, for in one hour they were made desolate.’  In one-hour the waterspouts shall remove the oceans from their present place and restore the canopy to its former place.

“The Great Flood did not flow in the center of the Earth.  The waters were frozen as they fell.  The canopy, at that particular time, became cold, about 50 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.  The flood waters froze to a depth of three miles around the openings of the North and South Poles.  You will find that in Job 38:10, Proverbs 8:30 and Psalms 104:9.”

Dr. Stranges on the Polar Regions

Dr. Frank E. Stranges wanted to know, “How in this great, wide world can man tell us that there is a North and a South Pole if God, through Job, tells us that, ‘He stretched out the North over the empty place (Job 26:7)?’ that is, the Lord stretched out the shell of the Earth over the North.  According to the compass, charts and maps, the Admiral Byrd expedition kept traveling further than North, even more so than was indicated on the maps.”

Dr. Frank E. Stranges believed that the American Admiral Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957), as navigator, and Floyd Bennett, as pilot, actually flew over the opening of the Inner Earth at the North Pole during their United States Navy-sponsored exploration flight of 9 May 1926, and as recorded in Byrd’s diary.  Photo source: www.dailymotion.com.

Dr. Stranges, when commenting on the admiral’s expedition, noted that, “In reality, they traveled in and around the opening of the Inner Earth; and because of the force of gravity, they did not fall off.  There are seven secret cities located in the Inner Earth.

“Beginning at 70 to 75 degrees latitude, the Earth begins to curve in.  The many explorers have sailed straight north until they have gone around the 800-mile curve and not one of them knew that they were on the inside of the Earth, and one of these was Admiral Richard Byrd.   Except for a strong, dusty warm wind, it was mild and pleasant.  There were icebergs from the interior and floating past them.  After 82 degrees latitude is reached, why is the compass needle always agitated, restless and balky?  Around the snow are of the North and South Poles, much of the snow is red, green, pink and purple.  Why?  Could it be that pollen from the millions of acres of colored flowers has caused the snow to likewise be multicolored?  Bear in mind that when the visible kingdom of God is finally established on this Earth, all things will be brought to light.  This is all part of the Great Kingdom of God.”

More important than all this information about the Inner Earth, in Dr. Frank’s estimation, was whether or not you receive the Kingdom of God in your heart.  This is the first and foremost consideration.  Once you have done that, you will be able to see with spiritual eyes, actually viewing the physical Kingdom of God.  “Daniel 2:44 and Revelation 5:10 verify this statement,” exclaimed the evangelist.   

It was Dr. Frank E. Strangest fondest wish that the light of love of God would assist each and every one of us to come to the realization that now is the time to accept that kingdom and be prepared for the changes that are soon to take place on this planet.

'Grim Reaper' & Gargoyle Encounter: Then & Now

A woman had an encounter with a dark shadow that reminded her of the 'Grim Reaper.'  A gargoyle-like being was also present. Years later, at another location, she had a similar incident.

This is a transcription recently forwarded to me:

"In 1990, Monica Paulino, moved into a semi detached back-split house. She was 20 years old and living on her own. A week after moving in, she began experiencing night terrors. In her dreams, she would see people being killed in various ways; dismemberment, decapitation, etc. Some months later, she woke up to see a dark shadow standing in the closet, moving to the foot of her bed. At the foot of her bed, she could see what she could only describe as the Grim Reaper (dark robe, skeletal face, etc.) standing there. It was even holding a scythe. She also saw, sitting on the bed, a small gargoyle-like creature. It had alligator skin and claws. It kept looking over at the Grim Reaper as if waiting for the command to attack.

She initially thought it was a nightmare but it happened night after night. She would wake up to them standing there and then, after some time, they would fade out. She began to find bruises and unexplained scratches on her body. She started sleeping on the sofa clutching a bible. Eventually, Monica moved out and the experiences stopped. For awhile. 

In 2018, Monica was living in a new house with her teenage son, Alex Paulino. She had not seen the Grim Reaper in 28 years after she moved out of the previous house but she never forgot it. She often spoke of the entity and his companion to her son. In the winter of 2018, she had gone on a retreat/vacation. When she returned home, something very strange began to play out. She started to feel horribly ill and depressed. She experienced insomnia and felt restless. She woke one day to the sound of a voice but nothing was there. The voice was ominous.

A few days later, while walking down the hallway to her bedroom, as she approached the doorway, she looked and saw, standing by the end of the bed, was the Grim Reaper. The same one she had seen back when she was 20. He was exactly as she remembered. She screamed in horror. Her son ran upstairs to check on her and he too saw the entity standing in the bedroom. He stopped dead in his tracks, staring at it in shock. The thing was real. Terrified, Alex began yelling at it to leave and it did. It appeared to vanish from the room. They looked outside and now it was standing on the lawn, looking up at them, almost as if it had teleported out of the room to the outside in the blink of an eye.

Lori Kindrade, a psychic medium, was soon brought in to clear the house. During the investigation, Lori, Alex, Monica, and another investigator, opened the bedroom door and heard the words “evil”, “hell” and “blood” though nobody was in the room. Lori sensed it was an evil entity and she proceeded to conduct a crossing-over ceremony. She managed to excise the demon. Things returned to normal and Monica got over her illness."

Review: 'On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Discovery'

'On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Discovery' documents the Olympic Project and the research the team has conducted throughout the Olympic Peninsula of northern Washington. The trailer description is as follows:

A Sasquatch research group operating out of the Olympic Peninsula area of Northern Washington believe they have finally uncovered definitive evidence of Bigfoot existence. The Olympic Project was informed of a unique find by a land surveyor in 2016 in an extremely remote part of the peninsula. The find is documented in a new feature from documentarian Seth Breedlove titled On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Discovery.

As with all of the 'Small Town Monsters' presentations, the beautiful footage and wonderful editing alone are worth the purchase price. The Olympic Peninsula in Washington contains a variety of unique fauna found nowhere else in North America.

The Olympic Project was originally formed by Washington native and law enforcement investigator Richard Germeau and longtime Bigfoot researcher Derek Randles. Over the years, the team has evolved into an enthusiastic and specialized group of dedicated investigators. The film details the history of the team and their methods for proving that an unknown primate truly exists in the Pacific Northwest.

At the beginning of the film, there is a brief chronicling of Sasquatch encounters from the mid to late 1800s some, of which, resulted in injury and death according to the witnesses. There were also a few first-hand accounts of incidents related to Sasquatch sightings by residents who lived in the Olympic Peninsula.

As the film continues, the members of the Olympic Project begin to describe a few of their personal encounters with supposed Sasquatch. Audio evidence is also presented that provides a chilling glimpse into the phenomenon. Later, the team further explains some of the physical evidence that has been uncovered during their investigations, including a number of locations where beds were constructed by these creatures. Some of the presentations were fascinating and intriguing, though they did seem to drag a bit. A few of the theories are subject to further interpretation.

The Olympic Project is dedicated to proving the existence of Bigfoot / Sasquatch through strict scientific and physical evidence only, even though I personally believe that science alone will not prove the reality of these beings. This film does not offer any opposing or supernatural theories as to why and how these hairy hominids dwell among us.

I do recommend that you watch 'On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Discovery' as Seth Breedlove and the Small Town Monsters production crew continue to bring us an exclusive and entertaining glimpse into the world of the unexplained. The film will be released on November 2, 2021, and can be pre-ordered / purchased at Small Town Monsters. Lon Strickler
