RED-EYED WINGED HUMANOID Manifests Inside Downtown Chicago Building

A downtown Chicago security guard starting to experience unexplained phenomena while making his rounds. He later observed an entity on a monitor and encountered a bizarre winged humanoid.

I recently received the following account:

"Hello, sir. In the spring of 2021, I was working as a security employee in downtown Chicago, Illinois. On this specific night at around 1:30 AM, I had completed my usual rounds and then settled into the monitor room to check the footage.

After about an hour, I took a walk to start my next round. Sitting all night can get tiresome and I needed to stretch my legs occasionally. I would start at the ground floor, then up the stairwells, checking all crucial points. I'd check the entrances, and exits, check to see if all the offices were locked up and then I would head back down to the ground floor.

When I got back to the 3rd floor, the elevator stopped. When the doors opened, no one was there. I noticed that corridor lights flickering and it felt a little creepy when that happened. I got back into the elevator and went to the ground floor. When I reached the ground floor, and after the elevator door opened, I made my way to the security room to watch the monitors.

As soon as I sat down, I caught a fleeting glimpse of something unusual passing by on one of the surveillance monitors that was situated outside the security room. I could have sworn that it had wings, but it went by too quickly. I got up, opened the door, and peeked out of the room.  My stomach started to churn, I could 'feel' that something was aware that I was there. Don't ask me why, I just had that immediate sense of nervousness.

I returned to the monitor room. I started to review the CCTV footage and pulled up the feed from a camera. As I watched I saw the familiar scene of the empty hallway. Then I observed a hazy figure materialize on the screen. It resembled a human form but its edges shimmered and blurred making it seem dreamlike. The figure floated down the hallway. It cast no shadow and seemed entirely devoid of substance. I continued to monitor the ghostly figure as its movements became more erratic.

Then, as it moved towards the front street door, it began to gain a more defined form. I immediately got to my feet and rushed to the door. I walked into the hallway and quickly moved toward the front. As I turned the corner I saw a 6-7 foot tall winged being that looked human-like. It was very thin and dark in color. The wings were almost transparent as the light from the street could be seen through it. The wings were huge, I'd say 15 feet in total width, and unfurled. I was in shock. I accidentally dropped my flashlight on the floor and the being turned and looked in my direction. That is when I noticed its eyes illuminated with a bright orange-red color. Then, in a flash of blue light, it vanished! It was totally gone!

I stood there for several minutes in total silence. I eventually walked back to the security room, but the rest of the shift was a blur. I never mentioned the sighting to anyone and I never wrote it in my report. Why? Because when I went back to watch the recording there was nothing there! I know that I didn't erase it because there was no way that I could have done that. No mechanism would allow me to do so.

I live alone, so there was no one at home to relay my incident to. About 2 weeks later, I quit my security job after finding another line of work.

More recently, I was at a friend's home for dinner. He had other acquaintances there as well. As we sat in his living room after dinner, a discussion started about the Chicago Mothman sightings. I had never heard of the phenomenon, but I was intrigued by what I heard.

That is when I decided to search online about the sightings and that is how I found you. I don't know what I witnessed that night, but deep down I believe that it may be related. I'm hesitant to reveal the location of my sighting because I don't want any trouble from my ex-employer. At this point, I'm debating with myself how much information that I want to disclose." J

NOTE: I was able to contact and message the witness. There was no telephone communication and the text was devoid of ID and stated 'SECURED' only. He eventually told me where his sighting occurred, but insisted that I not release the information. All that I will disclose is that it occurred in a building located at the intersection of W. Washington St & N. State St. For now, the specific location and other information will remain confidential and only known by the Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team.

This encounter suggests that these winged humanoids may be supernatural, an aspect of this investigation that the team has believed to be true. Lon
