BLACK-EYED KID, Dressed in 1950s Garb, Standing at Farm Road Entrance

A Pennsylvania man is driving to his job in Delaware along a long winding farm road. He suddenly sees a boy dressed in 1950s garb standing at the entrance to a farm. The boy had black eyes.

“I think I saw a black-eyed kid. So I went online after this happened to me and people have written stories about their experiences with meeting black-eyed children and they say that, one, they can't come into where you are unless you invite them in. They will usually pretend to be lost or need to use your phone or your bathroom in order to get into your house, or your car, or whatever. If you say no, then they can't come in. Secondly, nobody really has an explanation for what they are. Some people think that they are demons. Some people think that they're ghosts or aliens. Nobody really knows, so, yeah, I had heard of them before I had this experience but I really don't have any answers, even after I've had this experience.

I live in southeast Pennsylvania. I work in Delaware and my ride to work is this very long winding farm road. At one point I make a right onto another farm road and this road is a very, very tight space. It's two ways so you can go one way in cars. We can go the opposite way, but it's a very, very tight space. So when you're driving, the car beside you that's coming the opposite way, you both kinds of have to slow down just to be safe. It's kind of a dangerous road. Now, on each side of you are very tall grass hills, so if a cop was going to pull you over, I'm not really sure exactly where you'd pull off. You'd have to ride down the road for a while before you'd be able to pull over because it's that type of space and there's nowhere to pull over, really.

So I'm driving this road on a Saturday. I had to be at work at 3 PM and it was around 2:30 PM. I'm on this road, this very tight space, and there are cars coming the opposite way, and I'm slowing down so that we can both pass safely. I look to my right and there's a break in the hills, in the grass hills, where there's an entrance to a farm, and I look over, and in that entrance is a little boy. First of all, on Saturday it was 40 degrees, and he was not dressed like it was 40 degrees. He did not have a coat on. No hat. No scarf. No gloves. Nothing. He had on a red and gray striped shirt and jeans. The way he was dressed and the way he looked, he didn't look like he was from this time period. He looked like he was maybe from the 1950s. He was very pale and he was staring. He was standing on his bike. He wasn't on his bike. His bike was to the right of him and he was holding it and he was stiff. He's stiff as a board and, at first, I actually thought he was a statue.

Anyway, he's standing there staring straight ahead like his eyes are really big. He's staring straight ahead and his eyes are black, like, they're completely black and I'm looking right in his face. He's not that far for me, he's maybe 50 feet away, and I'm looking right in his face and he's just staring straight ahead and not moving. I was really creeped out by it and then my window started to fog up, but only my window. My windshield, my back windshield, the passenger seat, or the back seats, none of them fogged up, only mine. I really don't believe in this stuff, like, I don't think about strange phenomena. I don't read too much into it, whatever, so I know that this sounds crazy but I promise you, I'm not crazy and this also isn't a trolling video, like, I'm not putting this out there for attention or anything. I'm just putting it out there because I'm hoping someone has a logical explanation for what I saw because, like I said, I don't believe in this stuff and I would hope that there is a logical explanation for this little boy.

So I went to work and I told a few people what had happened and they were like, 'Maybe it was a statue?' I have to take that road home so by the time I leave work, it's about 12:30 AM and I’m driving on this road. This would be Sunday morning and I’m driving very fast, even though the speed limit's only 35. I’m driving very fast because I do not want to be on this road and I glance over very quickly and that gate to where the entrance to the farm is, it's not closed. There's no little boy there. There's no statue, so he definitely was not a statue. I don't have an explanation for what he was. The thing is though, if he was a real little boy and maybe I'm imagining this, there's nowhere for him to ride that bike. I Googled that road thinking that maybe he was a ghost and to see if a little boy had been killed there. The only thing I got was a man who had been killed there. He was a grown man though. He had been hit by a car, but that's the thing, it's so dangerous for a pedestrian on that road.” LT

Phantoms & Monsters Radio welcomes Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team investigators Tobias Wayland, Manuel Navarette, &  Lon Strickler (Host)

Tobias Wayland is a passionate Fortean who has been actively investigating the unusual for over a decade; the first several years of his investigative career were spent as a MUFON field investigator, and following that he investigated independently prior to becoming the head writer and editor for the Singular Fortean Society. Tobias is a frequent guest on various podcasts and radio shows has contributed to several books on the paranormal and is often invited to speak at paranormal conferences and events. He was also featured in the Small Town Monsters documentary 'Terror in the Skies' and the series premiere of Expedition X for his work investigating Mothman sightings around Lake Michigan. He and his wife Emily have been involved with the Lake Michigan Mothman investigation since its advent in the spring of 2017, and recently published a book chronicling the experience, 'The Lake Michigan Mothman: High Strangeness in the Midwest.'

His years as an investigator have served him best by illustrating that when it comes to the anomalous, the preternatural, and the paranormal, any answers he's found are still hopelessly outnumbered by questions.
