Curious Bright Glowing Light in Home Results in LOST TIME INCIDENT

A Chaffee, Missouri man gets out of bed to investigate a bright light in the hallway. After what should have been a brief absence of a few minutes, it resulted in 45 minutes of lost time.

I received the following account:

"Hi, Lon. I figured I would submit my weird experience that I had several years ago. My wife, kids, and I were living in government housing and had just moved into a larger apartment across the road from where we were living. We upgraded from a 2 to 3 bedroom apartment. I would like to note that the housing where I am from is actually really nicely kept up and is more of an older folks community rather than a slum that housing is notorious for. We loved living there. This was in Chaffee, Missouri which is in Southeast Missouri in northern Scott County. 

We moved in the week of Christmas 2020 or 2021, I can't remember exactly because those years get me confused because we had so much going on and we only lived there about 18 months before getting a house.

So one night the kids were asleep and me and the wife were in bed. She was asleep and I was playing on my phone. The bed was situated so that I could see into the hall from the bed, the end of the bed was across from the door. Note this was around 1:30 AM. 

As I played on my phone I started to see a bright glowing light coming from down the hall, I told my wife I was going to check it out as I thought maybe it was my computer that was in the living room. I got up, went down the hall, looked around, and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I went to the bathroom and then got back in bed. In total, this took maybe 2 minutes. The apartment was small, and you could see everything in just a minute or so.

When I got back in bed I got back on my phone, and that's when I noticed the time. It was 2:15 AM. I had been gone for 45 minutes. My wife was fast asleep and snoring, I woke her up and asked her how long I had been gone, she didn't know and was still half asleep. 

Looking back at this situation I still can not explain how I was gone for such a long time without, as I remember the event clearly and there were no gaps from the time I got up, looked around, went to the bathroom, and got back in bed. 

Thanks for letting me share. I enjoy your YouTube videos and look forward to them each week!

JEEPERS! DO HORROR FILM 'CREEPERS' EXIST? Please Join Us For LIVE Chat Q & A - Lon Strickler (Host)

I have investigated winged humanoid sightings since 1981 when I first included cryptid creatures as a part of my paranormal research. In 1988, I had a personal unexplained encounter with a winged humanoid in south-central Pennsylvania.

Since the beginning of the millennium, a specific term has surfaced as part of the description of several of the sightings; ‘Jeepers Creepers.’ If you are familiar with modern horror films, then you’ll have an idea of what I’m talking about. In 2001, an American-German horror film, that took its name from the 1938 song ‘Jeepers Creepers,’ was released. It was a tale about two older siblings who become the targets of a demonic creature, known as the ‘Creeper,’ in rural Florida.

The fact that several witnesses have compared the winged being that they encountered as resembling the Creeper is interesting. I suppose it is a cultural phenomenon; basically, because there are few other creatures, natural or fictional, to compare to. A few of the Chicago Mothman witnesses mentioned the Creeper character when giving a general description, though the eventual comparison came down to the bat-like wing structure and the ability to instantly launch itself into flight.

During the same period that we were receiving reports in the Chicago area, we were also receiving accounts of similar winged beings in other locations throughout the United States and Canada. Most of the sightings were very brief and without much detail, but a few specific reports compounded our curiosity.

I hope that you enjoy my presentation. I will answer questions from the LIVE CHAT throughout the show.
