MIB Observed Standing Alone, Staring Into the Distance, on Rural Arkansas Highway

A truck driver on a rural Arkansas highway late at night observed a man dressed in a black suit standing in the middle of the road staring into the distance. The driver freaked out and kept driving.

I received the following weird account:

“I had something happen to me when I was an over-the-road truck driver in very rural Arkansas. I was a trainer and at about 2 o'clock in the morning, my student woke up, came through the curtain, and sat in the other seat. I said, What are you doing up? And he said, "Just all of a sudden I just couldn't sleep." Right about then I looked up, and it was very rural and there were no cars parked along the road, no houses, just forest. And somebody's standing on the white line on the freeway, you know, on the side of the road. I clicked the cruise control off and I slowed down. I started to move over into the left lane and there was a guy in a black suit and a black Fedora hat. He was just standing there, still looking out onto the freeway. It was really strange and I have tried over the years to rationalize what that was and I haven't been able to. There was just nothing around out there. Nothing.

The really strange part was, I was kinda freaked out and kinda scared about it but my student, he was like, Maybe we should stop and see if he's okay. I said I'm not stopping. He was really insistent that we stop and I finally said, when we get about two miles down the road, I'll pull over, I'll wait about an hour. If you're not back, I'm leaving. He kinda hushed up then. He had this crazy sense that he needed to go to this person. I felt the opposite, that I needed to get the hell out of there.

It was strange. I haven't told too many people but, yeah, really odd. He was looking straight off into the freeway and he didn't really move and the only way I can describe it, how he looked, was kind of like Agent Smith of The Matrix, you know in the suit, like that, but he was also wearing the old-style Fedora hat. MIB? I thought maybe he was drunk at a wedding party and lost, but there was nothing out there. There was no reason for anybody to be standing out there, especially in a suit.” S

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.
