Aliens in a Queens Cemetery

Ronny in the Bronx in New York called in to tell an account he'd been told:

“Okay, I have this story. It didn't happen to me. This happened to one my mother's co-worker's husband. He was a delivery truck driver and there was a crew of three guys, him and two guys, he was the driver. He said that they had gone to pick-up a delivery in Queens in one of the boroughs because they would deliver to all the boroughs. He said that they pulled up to the building that was on a dead end street and at the end of the dead end street, there was a cemetery. So they were parked looking towards the cemetery.

So one guy hops out of the truck and goes into the building to get the produce to put on the truck. One other guy hops out of the truck and he's smoking a cigarette. Now, the main guy I'm telling you about, the driver, he actually sees a light right at the front of the cemetery at the end of the dead end. He said it was like 4:30 or 5:00 in the morning. And he sees the light and he hops out of the truck and he calls the other guy that was smoking the cigarette, like, 'Do you see this light?' And he's like, 'Yeah,' and he's like, 'Can a car come through there?' And he's like, 'No, no car can come through there because it's a dead end and it's a cemetery'. So they sort of walk up towards the light and they were between the sidewalk and the street and the light went away and the guy said that they saw three beings. He said they saw one standing right in front and there were two behind him. He said that they must have from 6 to 7 feet tall and he said that he heard them say, 'Everything is going to be okay'. And that's all he heard them say. He said he couldn't see them moving their lips. He said they looked to be 6 to 7 feet tall. He said that they were greyish, they looked kind of palish-greyish. He said they could see them through the street lights and then he said that they backed up and they were freaked out and he said that all he could hear them say was that 'Everything was going be okay'. He said he didn't hear them speak. He said it must have been like through his mind or something that he just heard them say that. The guy that was smoking the cigarette was like so freaked out, an ran back to the truck. The light came back and the three beings disappeared. So when the other guy comes out of the building with the produce to put on the truck, these guys are freaked out. They told him, like, 'Yo, we just saw something crazy' and they started explaining it to him and he said, 'Well, you guys must have been seeing things'.

We found out about this story because we had a family reunion and my mother invited her friend and that was her husband. He said he was afraid to tell people this story because he was afraid people would look at him like he was crazy. And he said the other guy saw it too and he said that the other guy, ever since then, was freaked out everytime they passed by that area. After that, the other guy that didn't see anything, he had to drive the truck because the other guys would feel like something was out of wack. I'm telling you, I've known this guy for awhile and this guy is like a normal guy. As normal as a guy could be. He wasn't crazy. He had a normal job, hard working man. I don't know why. He didn't have no reason to lie and he said that the other guy was forever messed up by this thing. He said that they saw this thing and it was crazy to them.”

Another 'Maryland Goatman' Encounter

I came across another 'Goatman' account from Prince George's County, Maryland:

One night about ten years ago me and my best friend decided to stop by a local “hangout” of ours in Bowie, MD to smoke a cigarette before he dropped me off at home. We grew up here and spent our early years wandering the railroad tracks and woods, smoking and drinking as children do. So this one spot is a railroad overpass at 450 and 197. There’s a parking lot and a small area of grass and trees, about 30 foot strip of land separating the tracks and the lot. So it’s nighttime and we decide to go there to smoke a cigarette. We go on the tracks and we’re facing the parking lot, so the overpass and to our left and the tracks go on to our right. This way we’re still barely in the glow from the yellow parking lot lights. Now we’re smoking and he’s talking but the entire time I’m focused to my right, peering down this track because I have the strangest feeling. I didn’t know what it was until later and it was the feeling of being watched by a predator, which I’ve never experienced before. After about two mins we’re almost done our cigarettes a helicopter flies right above us, seemingly at tree level, with the spotlight briefly going right over us coming from the direction of the overpass. Not 5 seconds later I hear the gravel shift from between the tracks and I look towards the overpass.

Standing right in the center of the overpass, there is this GIANT silhouette. Now since it is dark and it’s under the overpass I can only see it’s silhouette. It’s about 8 or 9 feet tall and burly looking. It appeared as if its head was attached to its torso, completely bypassing any semblance of a neck, the way super-jacked dudes look. It was huge and we only looked at it for about a second before I said Let’s go now! Now we we hurriedly starting rushing away and we hear the gravel move closer and not 3 seconds later we both hear the most demonic, horrifying, multiple pitched screech literally right behind our heads. It came from no more than a FOOT BEHIND US. So of course we book it to his car and no we didn’t look back because are you f**king kidding me get real. We get to his car and funny thing his lanyard got stuck around the steering wheel and when we pulled out his keys pulled out of the ignition as he turned the steering wheel. Anyways we drive around for an hour, only thing we could say is “what the f**k” and that’s my encounter with the Goat Man.

Now a week later we’re hanging out with our friend...let’s call him Andy. Now Andy has spent a lot of time in the woods and he was telling us about how last week the cops were out in the woods because they heard screams and thought a woman was being raped. Now I asked him if they had helicopters out and he said yes, and I asked him what day it was and it was the same night we saw the Goat Man. So we told him our experience and he was like yeah that was him.

I’ve spoken to a few others who have actually seen it and give a similar description to mine as well as the picture found online if you search Bowie goatman. - Unvolta - posted on Reddit 'Humanoid Encounters'

NOTE: The 'Maryland Goatman' has been seen off and on for the past 40+ years in Prince Georges County...especially in the areas of Bowie and Laurel. There have also been many Bigfoot sightings as well. Here are a few links:
