A ‘GHOST’ caught on camera could reveal the “future echo” of a little girl in an eerie picture taken years before she was born, her mum claims. Laura Cisse, 38, spotted the spooky figure standing behind her now 15-year-old daughter, Ayesha, for the first time this week in the photo, taken a decade ago.
At first glance mum-of-two Laura mistook the ghost for her younger daughter, Sophie. That was until she realised Sophie had not been born at the time the snap was taken – and there was no one else in the room. Now Laura believes the “unexplainable” image could reveal an “echo from the future” of her unborn child.
Laura, from Scarborough, North York’s, said: “The girl looks like Sophie. It does have a look of her. It’s very strange. When I first looked at the picture when I saw it again my eyes went straight to the face and I thought ‘what’s Sophie doing there? I’ve never seen her in that picture before. But then I realised Sophie wasn’t even born when the photo was taken. It can’t have been her. Maybe it’s an echo of the future or something like that. You don’t know.”
The creepy snapshot shows Ayesha aged five posing in a blue dress at the family’s former home, which they moved out of a year later. Laura, who works at printers, told how she only noticed the little girl in the background when it popped up on Facebook ‘memories’.
“I remember taking the picture. It was a Saturday, it was raining, and I was washing up and Ayesha had been nagging me to try on the dress as it was new. When she put it on I said she looked lovely and that I would take a photograph of her. I took the photo and then carried on washing up. I remember we were alone and there were no other children there.”
Laura insisted the photo was “unexplainable”, adding: “It is too high for it to be something on the table. “I remember the ornament that I had on the table and it is not that. It looks like a little girl with blonde hair but there is no one who would have been at the house who it could have been. I can’t believe I’ve never noticed it before.”
She admitted the photograph had left her “freaked out”.
“A new family live there now. They say their baby does sometimes smile at the wall when nothing is there, but that could just be babies smiling. I have shown them the picture and they said it is very strange. They seemed OK – they are not like me. I would be planning a move if I lived there. I would like to believe in the paranormal. I would like to believe that there is something there. Someone at work suggested it could be a doll’s head on the table, but it couldn’t be because Ayesha didn’t have any dolls as there were none with afros so she didn’t want one.”
An Ohio teen believes he has captured an image of a ghost inside his car while trying to photograph a beautiful sunrise. An avid nature photographer, Troy Vance, 15, told Caters News Agency he was “really creeped out” after zooming in on the picture.
“I decided to take a picture of the truck with the sunrise in the background as I thought it looked really nice,” Vance said. “I didn’t notice anything at the time, but after I uploaded it to Facebook I had people commenting on it, asking me if I was sitting in the front seat.” So Vance took a closer look at the image.
“Then I zoomed … in and saw the ghostly face in the windshield,” he said. “… My heart just stopped. I was in complete shock.” He added: “There was no one in the truck. I just can’t explain it.”
Vance said he believes the image shows a boy who drowned in the nearby lake in the early 1900s.
“It looks like a little boy is sitting in the front seat. It’s so freaky. … I think it could be him.”
It might sound like the plot to a Hollywood science-fiction blockbuster, but an astronaut claims to have seen an ‘organic, alien-like’ creature on the Space Shuttle.
Nasa engineer Leland Melvin made the astonishing claims during a discussion with a conspiracy theorist on social media. The former NFL football player says he spotted the creature in the payload bay of the space shuttle Atlantis, which was in orbit above the Earth at the time.
When he told Nasa about the sighting, space agency experts told Melvin the most likely explanation was ice had broken off away from the shuttle and it was the movement of these floating shards that caught his eye.
The revelation was made during an exchange on social network Twitter, held between Mr Melvin, 54, who worked as an engineer aboard the shuttle, and Scott C. Waring, who runs the site UFO Sightings Daily.
Mr Waring asked: ‘What’s your outlook on the existence of intelligent alien life living in our solar system? Have you ever witnessed a UFO? ‘Mr Melvin responded he had seen something ‘translucent, curved, organic looking’ when he was working with colleague Randy Bresnik.
He joked: ‘I was about to say “Houston we have a problem” but know everyone spins-up when those words are uttered from a space vehicle.’
The pair called the ground to ask Nasa what it could be and were told that the sighting was probably ice that had broken away and floated of the Freon hoses. Mr Melvin dismissed claims by the UFO enthusiast that Nasa’s explanation was a cover-up but did admit ‘you never know.’
Speaking to MailOnline, Nigel Watson, author of UFOs of the First World War, said: ‘I think Leland is winding up alien fans, and as suggested it was probably an ice formation he saw.”
‘Fortunately, he didn’t test this explanation by going too close to it, otherwise, it might have shot upwards to cling to his face and we all know what happens next.’
Nasa launched its first space shuttle, Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-1), from the Kennedy Space Center on April 12, 1981. In the three decades that followed, the space agency deployed a total of 135 missions from US soil. The shuttle missions came to an end with the Atlantis shuttle (STS-135), which flew 33 missions during its service, on July 21, 2011.
This is not the first time the space agency has been accused of covering up evidence of extraterrestrial life. Various objects snapped near the International Space Station have been claimed to be alien in origin by conspiracy theorists. In March, researcher Barry DiGregorio at Buckingham University claimed the Curiosity rover snapped trace fossils created by soft-bodied creatures on Mars.
Images beamed back to Earth from Curiosity appear to show patterns similar to Ordovician trace fossils Dr DiGregorio has photographed here on Earth, he claimed. Trace fossils are made by animals going about their lives, like footprints, burrows and waste matter, rather than the remains of the creatures themselves. According to Nasa, the shapes captured in images from Mars are simply rock crystals that are currently undergoing analysis.
A GHOSTLY hooded figure has been caught on a teenager’s camera while she was exploring a Welsh abbey. Urban explorer Rosie Boulton, 19, made the spooky sighting at the historic site where Black Death wiped out monks in 1348.
Travelling to several haunted locations a week, Rosie is constantly on the road snapping pictures of ruins. While visiting Tintern Abbey at night, Rosie and her friends didn’t find anything unusual but remember feeling creeped out at the Monmouthshire site.
Having always believed in ghosts and the paranormal, she couldn’t believe her luck and can’t wait to visit the location again. Rosie, from Stanford Bridge, Worcs, said: “I get an adrenaline rush, especially when it’s dark because it sets that eerie vibe. I felt okay at the beginning, but it was a huge place which made it feel a little spookier. You’re not supposed to go there at night. We felt like someone was coming towards us so we all ran out as we were scared. I didn’t know about the ghost of the monk until I got home and looked back at the pictures. I was on my own going through the photos and it just freaked me out. I called my friend and told her about the photos straight away.”
Tintern Abbey stands by the River Wye and was founded by the Cistercian monks in 1131 AD and was the only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain – the first in Wales.
TERRIFYING footage has emerged of what some believe to be the roars of Bigfoot in a forest. In the clip, a camera has been set up in an unidentified forest in the US. The area is reportedly a hotspot where people have claimed to see and hear the beast many times.
After a few seconds of silence, some howls are heard before an angry roar bellows through the trees. the second roar is heard not long after this, seeming to get nearer to the camera. Heavy breathing follows this as the creature making these noises appears to be communicating with a howling beast.
The rustle of leaves indicates that the mysterious beast is very near, continuing to roar before the clip ends. Bigfoot, sometimes referred to as Sasquatch, is the name given to a hairy, ape-like being that dwells in the woods. Several sightings of the mythical beast have been reported in North America after they peaked in the 1970s.
This clip was published on Nv Tv and it has clocked up nearly 5,000 views already, sparking a huge debate online. Some viewers believe this is evidence for the existence of Bigfoot.
“That is chilling! My cat was even looking concerned,” one person said.
Another added: “There’s no way that was human.”
But this is not the only recent reported sighting of the beast. A creature was spotted lurking in Canadian woods last week. While a man was left terrified when he believed he saw Bigfoot while trekking through the woods.
MOST women get fed up with men ghosting them, but others can’t get enough of things that go hump in the night. Reports of spectrophilia – sexual encounters with spirits – are on the rise. For some, the passion is a passing fling. Others find emotions can run deep and decide to give up real men for orgasms with a phantasm.
AMETHYST claims to have had more than 20 phantom flings – even joining the Mile-High Club with her latest spirit partner.
The 30-year-old counsellor, from Nottingham, says: “My new ghost lover is really special – wise, stable and kind. I am not 100 per cent sure if it is male or female, but I have found true love. We met when I went on a trip to Australia earlier this year. Spirits usually remain in one place, but I am delighted this one followed me back to the UK. I was happy and excited. So excited, in fact, we headed to the plane loo – and I am now a member of the Mile-High Club. Orgasms I have with my spirit lovers have been way deeper and more satisfying than any I’ve had with ordinary men. I have given up sleeping with human men. Ghost sex is deeper, more passionate and, oddly, seems more natural. You sense the presence, can feel the energy and, although there’s nobody to touch, you can sense that you’re being touched. I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve been looking into having a ghost baby – and I don’t think it’s totally out of the question.
I believe phantom pregnancies – where a woman experiences pregnancy symptom when there is no foetus – is a ghost baby. I have always had the ability to communicate with the supernatural and first started having spiritual sex when I was 18 and engaged. I was getting undressed for bed when I suddenly felt fingers fluttering their way down my spine and a soft whispering sound – but no words – from behind, in my right ear. It made me shudder all over but in a really nice way. The next thing I knew I was being turned around and embraced. The energy was all-consuming and before I knew it I was on the bed in the throes of ghost-induced ecstasy.
My engagement ended when my fiancé returned one afternoon to find me in bed, wearing stockings, suspenders, a Basque and a tiny G-string. He believed I was hiding a lover, of the flesh-and-blood kind, and ransacked the room looking for him. “That’s when I told him. I said he would never be able to find him because the “man” he was looking for was a ghost. He immediately packed his belongings and left.
After that, I decided that real men were more trouble than they’re worth and that ghost lovers were the way forward. They can’t buy me flowers or take me out to dinner, but they make me feel special in other ways. One drew hearts in condensation on my window. I am not the only one to prefer spirit lovers and have offered to counsel to people going through rough patches in their relationships with ghosts.”
ALTHOUGH currently dating a living man, Sian, 26, claims to have had passionate sex with a ghost from the 19th century.
The copywriter, who lives in London, says: “After splitting from my long-term boyfriend three years ago I rented a 16th-century cottage in Aberystwyth, in west Wales. I was immediately taken by the painting of a handsome man above the mantelpiece, which dated back to 1820.
“A few months after I’d moved in, I woke one morning to find a dark-haired, very good-looking young man lying next to me. He was fully clothed – in a loose, white shirt, a neck scarf and old-fashioned breeches.
He had a kind of shimmer to him as if he was behind a fluttering voile curtain. I told myself I was dreaming and rolled away from him. As I faced the wall, I slowly realised I wasn’t asleep and, suddenly, I was frozen with fear. I felt a hand on my waist but the touch was strange – light and cool. I looked at the man again and realised he was the one from the painting. We ended up making love for an hour. He was very gentle.
Even when he moved on top of me, pressing down, he felt almost weightless. It was very strange, but the sex was amazing. “We made love three times before he vanished forever. I sobbed when he left. I guess I had fallen in love. When I told a couple of close friends about it they looked at me as if I was mad. So I just laughed it off, said something about eating too much cheese, then kept quiet after.”
THE spectral sex phenomenon is on the rise, writes G.L. Davies, ghost hunter and author of Ghost Sex: The Violation. People are opening up about their experiences, with hundreds of men and women willing to share their stories. In the past four years, more than 15,000 people have searched “ghost sex” at paranormal news website theparanormalchronicles.com.
This highlights that a mass of people are feeling lonely, frustrated and sexually disconnected from the le around them. We must be mindful not to dismiss the notion that something incredible, sometimes terrifying, is happening to people all around the world. But at the same time, we have to take into account psychological conditions that may be behind the Spectrophilia phenomena.
I think it is a telling sign in this new age of online dating and social media hook-ups that so many are now looking towards other realms for that special involvement, an out-of-the-ordinary relationship with an extraordinary entity. Maybe, for some, the affections of a spirit are far more loving, arousing and comforting than a person planet could ever offer
A ghostly apparition has apparently been spotted lingering in the woods on the outskirts of Dundee. Fiona Laing and her daughter Keira Laing took a photograph of the “mysterious figure” spotted chanting and dancing at Monikie Country Park. Ghost hunters Neil Paterson and Jilly Henderson are now returning to the scene of the sighting next month to host ‘The Great Angus Ghost Tour’.
Jilly said: “The people who saw the figure thought it was someone getting filmed for a music video or something but there was nothing else around going on and they realised this was really something completely different. This mysterious figure was chanting and dancing and the witnesses who took this photograph watched him for over 10 minutes. A passer-by joined them in the woods as they watched the figure and just as they went to point him out he had vanished. But the strange thing was in order to exit the park he would have had to walk past the witnesses otherwise he’d have had to cross the water in the dam which surrounded him. They all ran like the wind to the car park terrified he was still around. I was gobsmacked as it adds a completely different twist to the walk.”
Bespooked Ghost Tours – based in Arbroath – have made it their mission to uncover the strangest stories and ghostly goings on around the county. Husband and wife team Neil and Jilly will be presenting their findings at Monikie Country Park on a guided walk through the woods between October 5-12.
A MOTHER-of-two was left terrified and unable to sleep after she noticed a ghostly figure in a photograph she took of her family playing in the woods.
Laura Watson claims the ghostly child can be seen just behind her son’s shoulder in the harrowing photograph. Laura, from Newcastle, had been out with her family at Plessey Woods Park last weekend, when she decided to take some pictures on her phone of her daughter Charlotte Hill, 15, son Byrin Watson, nine and cousin Jack, 16.
She said: “It’s very unusual and everyone is really freaked out.. I and my daughter couldn’t even go to sleep last night because we were so scared.” Laura, a medical receptionist, was left “terrified” when she later saw the pictures she had taken.
She claims the picture shows the face of another child had appeared behind Byrin, despite no one else being near them in the woods at the time.
“My husband is on night shifts and I was alone, and I was like ‘oh God’. I was terrified in case anything had followed us back, I’ve had people on our Facebook saying they are going to send me prayers.”
Laura and her daughter couldn’t go to sleep as they were so scared. Laura was sceptical of anything to do with ghosts and the paranormal but admits the photograph has changed her mind.
“I didn’t believe in anything like that until I saw this for myself,” she said.
The family had been walking their dogs after enjoying a picnic in the park when the children came across a large tree and began climbing it. Laura decided to take a picture of them using her phone, but it wouldn’t be until later that day that she would discover the ghostly figure. She said: “There was no one behind the tree, my daughter or my nephew would have seen them. There was nobody there.”
After getting home and putting the picture on her computer it was only then she made the frightening discovery.
“No one was any the wiser that anything was actually there until I saw the picture,” Laura said.
“When I got home I put the picture on the computer and when it zoomed in and I was able to see it closer, I thought what is that thing behind Byrin? When I zoomed in further I could see a face. But I was like ‘but there was nobody there! It looks like a child to me, I don’t know if it’s a girl or a boy. But I can see this face and it looks like the hand is on my son’s shoulder, which is very bizarre. Some people have said I must have Photoshopped it as they can’t believe it. But I’ve explained that I wouldn’t even have a clue how to do anything like that. It was literally taken on a phone. I’m rubbish with technology and I’m just not the kind of person to do that. There’s no way that is anything but what it is – you can basically see a face. For someone to be that close to my son, if it was another child, he would have noticed them. I would have seen them and I wouldn’t have taken a picture with another kid behind him.”
Some have suggested the ghostly figure might be the spirit of a boy who drowned in the woods years ago.
Laura said: “I don’t know much about the history of the woods but some people are saying that many moons ago a young boy drowned in the river. You don’t know if it’s just hearsay. A lot of people say it looks like a girl with pigtails but it doesn’t to me, it looks like a boy. That’s what it looks like to me. I would love to go back to the woods, it’s not put me off at all. I think it’s dead fascinating now. Obviously, I just hoped it’s not hanging around us as I don’t want that feeling that something is with us.”

The ghost of the Gray Man is an enduring legend that originated on Pawleys Island, South Carolina and dates back more than 200 years.If you see the Gray Man, a massive hurricane is on its way, but your home will be spared, according to folklore.
Sightings of the mysterious spectral figure started around 1822. According to the legend, a young man had just returned from the sea and was on his way across the island to ask for his love’s hand in marriage, but he was thrown from his horse during a storm and died in quicksand.
His betrothed later came across his ghost who warned her to leave the island. She persuaded her parents to leave and when the family returned, they saw utter destruction everywhere, but their home had been spared, according to the Paranormal Guide.
The Gray Man ghost has been chronicled in TV shows and in books dating back to 1956, WHNS reported.

Sent out to further investigate, one serviceman on patrol reported a “smooth, opaque, black glass” craft on the forest floor, covered in incomprehensible hieroglyphs, while on another night a different team encountered an object the size of a basketball turn into a spaceship, and had a “silent standoff” with what appeared to be a humanoid alien. The team, some of whom have since been diagnosed with PTSD, said that indentations in the ground, damage to the forest, and abnormal radiation readings proved that these were not mass hallucinations.
But now, Dr David Clarke, a researcher at Sheffield Hallam University, who once managed Britain’s national UFO sightings archive, says that he has found a less far-fetched explanation. Courtesy of a Special Air Service “insider” named “Frank,” who personally contacted the academic who has spent the past three years trying to get to the bottom of the mystery, which has been labelled Britain’s own Roswell.
According to the source, the root of the incident goes back to August 1980, when British SAS commandos made a practice landing inside the USAF base, in a live exercise intended to challenge their American allies – a rare but known practice during the Cold War.
But instead of receiving a friendly telling off, the team was allegedly hauled off into cells, mauled, and interrogated at length by US officers, who referred to them as “unidentified aliens.”
“After their release, the troopers made no complaint at their rough treatment but were determined to get their own back on the USAF for the beating that they had received,” said Clarke, quoted in the Daily Mail.
“In particular, their repeated characterization as ‘aliens’ sowed the seeds of a plan. They said: ‘They called us aliens. Right, we’ll show them what aliens really look like.’”
So come Christmas, the British supposedly created several contraptions using the materials at hand, such as remote-controlled kites, helium balloons, and coloured flares, and launched them into the sky.
“Someone in London recalled the events of the previous August and questions were asked. A few red faces – but also some satisfaction and amusement – followed,” said Clarke.
“The USAF was ‘reassured’ at a very senior level and no UK investigation was undertaken – for obvious reasons.”
According to Clarke, who says that he followed up the claims with several officials from the era, this is the reason for what some say appears to have been a continuously blasé reaction from the UK authorities to the incident.
While “Frank’s” yarn is interesting in itself, for determined conspirologists – including several men present on the nights of the sightings – who have claimed that the case has been deliberately hushed up by the military, this will likely be treated as a new red herring, put out by the government to throw them off the scent.
The RAF has sent out a ‘don’t panic’ alert to people throughout the Burton area following a wave of sightings of a ‘ghost plane’ over Newhall and Hilton. Air force chiefs have revealed that three military aircraft were in the area at the time of the sightings on the evening of Monday, March 26.
Many witnesses claimed to have seen a dark-colored Second World War-style aircraft gliding silently towards the ground before disappearing from view.
The RAF later revealed that three of their multi-purpose aircraft were over Derbyshire on Monday.
A spokesman from the RAF said: “The RAF can confirm that three Hercules aircraft, from RAF Brize Norton, flew a routine sortie across the Derbyshire area on Monday evening.
“We are routinely flying over the Peak District and we increased our fleet of A400m Atlas from eight to 22 last year, so in the next two years, we will be doing more test flights over the area. We tend to fly over the Peak District and Lake District because those areas are less populated which makes it safer for everyone involved. Also, the challenging landscapes provide good training conditions for our pilots who need to practice flying in extreme conditions.”
Dozens of witnesses had come forward saying they saw an apparent “ghost plane” flying very low across the county. They said they saw a “dark, fast-moving and silent” aircraft sweep across the sky.
Some even took to social media to claim they had seen the ghost of a Second World War Douglas Dakota which crashed in the county more than 70 years ago, but the RAF later came up with a more rational explanation.
One witness said on Twitter: “Two RAF C-130 Hercules aircraft flew low level over Matlock around that time on Monday night.
“They would have been over Ambergate at around the right time. Both would have looked a drab green in colour.”
The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refuelling, maritime patrol and aerial firefighting.
It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide. More than 40 variants of the Hercules, including a civilian one marketed as the Lockheed L-100, operate in more than 60 nations.
The Paranormal Chronicles received a link from Pro Gamer Neon Synthesis (@XboxOne_Neon ) that a fellow gamer had been startled to realize that while playing video games he was not alone and appears to have captured a terrifying stalking figure.
The GIF presented on @snoopygf shows a humanoid black figure skulking in the background that then mysteriously disappears.
The occurrence of Gamers witnessing strange activity on the Kinect is not uncommon with many within the community blaming Microsoft decision to no longer support the device is due to so many people claiming strange activity on the gaming accessory.
The Kinect is fast becoming a popular device for ghost hunters with its ability to witness and map unseen entities with its RGB camera, depth sensor and multi-array microphone running proprietary software”, which provide full-body 3D motion capture, facial recognition and voice recognition capabilities.
One Twitter follower said, “ Kind of crazy story. My dog was bugging out one day. Looking around parts of my apartment. So, for sh**s and giggles I turned on my Kinect and it picked up a figure for a moment where my dog was looking. Had me freaked out for a few weeks.”
While another reasoned. “Come on guys when the camera switches his head is not in the same place. Look at the pictures in the background for placement.”

Since the dawn of mankind, people have claimed to have been visited by ghosts, spirits, and demons.
Coincidentally, the majority of people will say that their paranormal experience had occurred in the dead of night. But scientists believe they have a more rational explanation for this now and theorize that paranormal experiences are nothing to do with ghosts, but to do with one’s sleep patterns.
Professor of Psychology at Goldsmiths University, Alice Gregory, believes there are several ways in which sleep disruption can be confused with ghouls.
One of the ways is through sleep paralysis – when you reach the deep sleep state, or REM state, where you become paralyzed as to not act out your dreams.
However, around eight percent of people retain some form of consciousness when they are in a REM state so it seems as if their dreams are transferred into real life and it could be misinterpreted as seeing people and things which are not actually there.
Another possible explanation is something called exploding head syndrome where a loud bang is heard while you are drifting off, but there is no explanation for it.
Prof Gregory says in an article for The Conversation: “When we fall asleep, the reticular formation of the brainstem (a part of our brain involved in consciousness) typically starts to inhibit our ability to move, see and hear things.
“When we experience a ‘bang’ in our sleep this might be because of a delay in this process. Instead of the reticular formation shutting down the auditory neurons, they might fire at once.
“Researching my book, I spoke to Mrs. Sinclair, who is 70 and lives alone. She told me about what she had thought was a ghost living in her house, an imp throttling her during the night and other things that had left her petrified. Having scientific explanations provided her with immense comfort and she no longer believes in paranormal explanations for the things that she experienced.
“Our hope is that scientific explanations of paranormal experiences might help others by lowering anxiety. Decreasing anxiety has also been hypothesized as a potential method by which to reduce sleep paralysis.”
A grandma has been left spooked after spotting a “tall dark figure” in an old abandoned building in Swadlincote.
Glenda Dix has spoken of her horror after catching a glimpse of the ghostly vision while out for a meal with relatives on Saturday, June 2. The 61-year-old was enjoying a meal at Prezzo’s in the Pipeworks, in Swadlincote, when she stepped outside for some fresh air at 9.30pm.
She said she was standing by the miner’s sculpture and glanced up at the derelict building next to the Tall Chimney pub and restaurant when she spotted a “tall, slim, dark figure” walk past the window on the top floor.The building, believed to date back to the Victorian era, was formerly a factory where workers made chimney stacks, clay pipes, and fireproof bricks.
Swadlincote resident Glenda said she was unable to tell anybody what she had seen for a few minutes as she could not understand what she had seen.
She said: “I have been told that it could have been a security guard but did not see any lights as you would think they would have had torches.
“We sat in the car ages after to see if we could see anything again but there was nothing. I have been asked if I was drinking and I only had one G&T, I was very level-headed. “I really want answers and to know if anybody else has experienced the same. The hairs on my arms and the back of my neck went up a bit. As you look at the building it was the middle window at the top of the building.”
North Eastern Paranormal Team, The Spectre Detectors believe they have captured definitive proof that ghosts exist while investigating the renowned 30 East Drive Wakefield, Pontefract.
Elaine Kelly founder of the specter detectors and the team while investigating the property were witness to ghostly shapes, bangings, and physical interaction, however, it was night vision CCTV footage that really startled the team. The footage shows the outline of a man walking from the right of the frame to the left apparently disappearing into the area of the curtains.
30 East Drive, Chequerfield Estate, Pontefract, which is reputed to be haunted by the most violent poltergeists in the world. This unassuming semi detached house has been feared by many and has seen people fleeing in terror.
Abandoned in the 70’s by the family who lived there after the horrific treatment of their daughter, Diane Pritchard, 30 East Drive has not been lived in since. The poltergeist activity here is considered to be extremely malevolent although it has to be said that Mediums have also picked up on the spirit of a desolate young female.

A woman has taken photos of an eerie figure she claims to be a ghost at one of Essex’s popular tourist attractions. The Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, originally built during the Cold War in 1952 and 1953, is the ‘deepest and biggest’ in the country.
Now, a professional ghost hunter claims to have spotted a ghost flitting between rooms at the Brentwood attraction. Paranormal expert Laura Goff, 35, who is based in Edgware, north London, says she spotted the ‘Shadow Man’ ghost moving between rooms at the disused nuclear bunker facility in September this year.
The mother-of-one is a self-proclaimed “White Witch Pagan” and is also the founder of Twilight Ghost Hunts, a team of 13 who scour the UK looking for spooks.
Despite her line of work, Laura has rarely seen an actual ghost, let alone photographed one. However, while at the Kelvedon Hatch bunker this year, Laura explained her encounter with the spooky ‘Shadow Man’ who she managed to photograph standing between two bunk beds.
“I’ve only seen a ghost three times, “Laura explained, “But I do have an image of the one I’ve seen twice. He’s literally a big black shadow. The first time I saw him, my partner Matt was working with me and, along with my group, we were just finishing up when we saw this six-foot outline of a man walking at the other end of the room. I was like ‘Matt is that you?’, but he didn’t answer me, and I felt really peeved off. I thought he was ignoring me in front of guests. So, I then stormed up towards him and asked, ‘Why are you ignoring me? Why have you left the group on their own’, and he didn’t answer me, he just turned and looked at me and snarled. The rest of the group saw him and then he decided to walk forward and through a wall. The group started screaming, including me! We headed to the base room for a coffee, hands shaking. The second time I saw him was between two bunk beds, just standing there.”
Experts have cast their eye over footage of a mysterious sea creature captured on video in the River Tyne. Kevin Burton filmed the unknown creature while sat on the North Pier at Tynemouth and uploaded the footage to YouTube.
The video was shared by popular conspiracy channel The Hidden Underbelly and viewed more than 13,500 times in the weeks since. Now, Dr Per Berggren – senior lecturer at the Marine School of Natural & Environmental Sciences at Newcastle University – has cast his eye over the video.
He said: “It is a bit difficult to tell from the video due to the quality. The most exciting option would be a conger eel which can grow to a maximum 3m length. But it is difficult to be sure from the video clip. Alternatively, it may be a piece of kelp being moved in an eel-like way by tidal current.”
YouTube users speculated on the nature of the creature filmed in the waters on a warm summer morning. One comment read: “With all the radiation spilling into our waters, no telling what creatures are forming. Japan’s nuclear Reactor is STILL leaking into the water
Legend has it a shadowy figure sometimes appears on Carolina beaches before hurricanes, a warning from the spirit world of impending danger.
He’s called the Gray Man and, if you believe maritime lore, he seems to favour Hatteras Island and Pawleys Island, S.C. He never speaks, just walks the beach, fading into the wind and sea spray upon approach.
Gray-Man sightings date back to the early 1900s, and it’s said those who encounter him before a storm seem to be spared the worst.
The Outer Banks certainly weathered Hurricane Florence relatively unscathed. A wobble in the storm’s track just 50 miles north would have brought devastating winds and flooding, Dare County emergency management officials said in the aftermath.
Is it a coincidence the Gray Man just might have been caught on a live webcam at Avalon Pier the night of Sept. 13?
Billy and Jim McClency of the YouTube channel “Ghost Guys Go” aren’t exactly real-life paranormal investigators, more like comedians spoofing on such shows. But a friend of the duo who evacuated for Hurricane Florence was watching live cam videos from the coast the night the storm hit and spotted something at Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills.
At the very end of the 700-foot pier, wind howling, a figure can be seen walking from one side to the other.
“Our friend Scott sent us the Gray Man video,” Jim McClency said. “As far as we know it’s real, and the guy we spoke with at the pier said the same.”
The YouTube video has been viewed nearly 500,000 times and received some attention in national and international news media. It also has a pretty big share of detractors, commenting that it’s double exposure, or a person walking inside the building and reflecting on the glass, or just a downright fake overall.
Employees at Avalon Pier took a look at the video this week and confirmed it was Avalon’s webcam. But was the ghost actually there? An optical illusion? Doctored? They couldn’t say but did offer that they’ve never had any reports of ghosts or paranormal activity there.
The Gray Man may have made another appearance in the Carolinas earlier in the summer, this time at Pawleys Island, where a couple vacationing reportedly photographed him walking on another pier there. That image was taken in late July.
Where did the legend of the storied Gray Man get its start? There the mystery remains. According to the website NC Ghosts, Hatteras locals have said he may have been a sailor returning home who died at sea, or the ghost of George Pawley, Pawley Island’s original owner, or even perhaps Blackbeard the pirate.
Whatever his origins, the Gray Man lives on, at least in the imaginations of Carolina islanders who know to heed his warnings.
STURGEON, P.E.I. – Jim Bruce stepped out on his deck the last day of September around 11 p.m. just to check how cold it was. As he looked to the sky, he noted there was no moon and he could see the stars perfectly.
Then, something came from the west. Bruce has seen a lot of satellites in the sky near his home in Sturgeon, but this object was not like any he’d seen before.
“Must be a plane,” he thought.
The object with flashing lights just stopped dead. Then, it shot in a 90-degree angle towards Bruce’s home and stopped once again.
“Then it continued again toward the east, stopped, dropped, sort of moving towards Nova Scotia.”
Next, it flew in a circle and hovered, Bruce, said, “It shot off and disappeared over the horizon faster than any satellite I had ever seen.”
The next day, Bruce was getting some paint at Stewart and Beck’s in Montague and a couple of people were talking about what they had seen in the sky. The same thing. In the same part of the sky, a few weeks ago. Bruce wanted to know what it was he saw, so he began making calls.
He got some numbers for the Royal Canadian Air Force, hoping they could tell him something. No one took him seriously. He called Air Canada, who hung up. Then he called NAV Canada, who also hung up. Finally, the RCMP told him it wasn’t something they dealt with.
So, who do you phone when you think you’ve seen an unidentified flying object?
Since 1989, Ufology Research of Manitoba (UFORM) has been taking reported sightings in Canada and compiles them into an annual Canadian UFO Survey.
Chris Rutkowski, who manages the survey, says sightings are no longer being managed by any military or police groups.
“At one point the RCMP were investigating UFOs on behalf of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). They did it for several decades,” Rutkowski said in a phone interview. The idea was some of the things seen in the sky could be meteorites, which the research council wanted to follow.
“That program with the NRC finished in the ‘90s and so the RCMP had no commitment to continue,” he said.
Still, Rutkowski is saddened Bruce’s claim was not taken seriously.
“Polls have shown about 10 per cent of all Canadians believe they’ve seen UFOs, which is a fairly significant number when you think about it. I want people to understand that UFOs can be studied in a scientific way. We can explain most UFO reports.”
Every year in Canada there are about 1,000 UFO reports, Rutkowski said. Last year there were eight in P.E.I.
TERRIFYING footage has emerged showing the ghost of a witch floating up to the clouds, according to wild claims online
The spooky clip, captured in Mexico, shows the phenomenon as it flies in broad daylight. It appears to be a figure wearing dark clothing and it seems to be holding onto something. ut the subject does not make life-like movement and the clip cuts out before we get a closer look. It was uploaded to YouTube channel mavi777 yesterday, where it has already racked up hundreds of hits.
“Oh my God, that looks just like a dead witch,” one comment read.
Another added: “Could be some kind of alien.”
And a third claimed: “Unbelievable. Looks like a witch to me.”
Witches are said to have magical powers, especially evil ones and are often depicted wearing black cloaks, riding broomsticks. In ancient history, the term was not exclusively negative and they were considered capable of both harming and healing.
UFO expert Nick Pope, who was bound by the Official Secrets Act, says his work involved monitoring Russian development of a death ray and dealing with psychics
ALIENS, UFOs and death rays sound more like the stuff of science fiction than the subjects of top-secret government briefings… but I know from my 21 years at the Ministry of Defence that our leaders take these threats more seriously than they let on.
I also learned from my time there that UFOs are real. And I should know because my job throughout the nineties was to investigate them.
From UFOs almost crashing into planes to alien abductions The bottom line was that we knew UFOs were real, but we didn’t know what they were. The majority of UFO sightings could be explained, but around five percent remain mysterious. The cases that concerned me most were the near-misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft – there are several such cases in the MoD’s UFO files.
What was much more fun was the other weird stuff that came our way simply because there was nowhere else in government to send it: crop circles, claims that people had been abducted by aliens, ghost sightings and people who claimed to be psychic and volunteered their services to British intelligence.
But is it really true, as the latest declassified files suggest, that we were racing against the Russians and the Chinese to acquire alien technology and develop some sort of super-weapon? Not quite, but the reality is almost just as bizarre.
MoD employees are allowed to say where they work, so I didn’t have to lie to anyone about that. However, we had to keep things bland and imply our jobs were boring and routine – which is tough when you spend your day dealing with this kind of thing. It helped that the MoD was the family business. I joined because my father, the MoD’s Deputy Chief Scientific Adviser, suggested I might find the work interesting. That turned out to be a huge understatement, but it was only once I’d been formally recruited and undergone rigorous security vetting that I got a real idea of what it all involved. Those of us involved in UFO research downplayed the true extent of our interest, and never let on that civil servant like me were trying to make sense of what we were dealing with. We never spoke too openly about the possibility any of the UFOs were from somewhere other than Earth, but we remained open-minded and certainly didn’t rule anything out.
As ever in the MoD, we were interested in what the Russians and the Chinese were up to. We were aware, in particular, that the Russians had put quite a lot of effort into researching and investigating not just UFOs, but parapsychology – telekinesis (moving objects with the mind), psychic phenomena and similar things. We viewed all this in terms of threats and opportunities, and one opportunity was the possibility that “novel military applications” might result from a better understanding of UFOs.
This was connected with a view that UFOs might not, in fact, be objects but rather the result of changes in energy in the atmosphere. This raised the intriguing possibility of channeling the energy and developing a death ray.
If that was the opportunity, the threat was that the Russians and the Chinese might beat us to it. All the while, the Americans were conducting their own research.
Last year, after years of denying there was any US government interest in UFOs, the Pentagon admitted they’d been investigating sightings after all. The Pentagon’s UFO project was known as AATIP – Advanced Aerospace (or Aviation, depending on who you ask) Threat Identification Program. When you can’t even be sure of the name of a government project, you know you’re dealing with some pretty secretive stuff.
The point is, they did a very clever thing by not mentioning “UFO” anywhere in the title, and as a result, Congress, the media, and the American people were completely in the dark until the story broke, and some declassified videos surfaced of US Navy jets chasing UFOs.
Radar operators tracked these things from time to time, and the speeds and maneuvers were astounding. We told Parliament, the media and the public that UFOs were of “no defense significance”, but this was a meaningless soundbite designed simply to get people off our backs. And while we may not have been in a race to acquire extra-terrestrial technology and alien weapons, as some conspiracy theorists are suggesting, it was certainly as spooky and surreal as anything you’ll ever see in The X-Files.
A man and his 10-year-old son who were checking their blackfish (can’giiq) trap on the frozen tundra are the most recent eyewitnesses in sighting a Bigfoot-like creature.
The sighting took place in mid-January 2013. The man and his son were traveling from their home, Toksook Bay, to check their blackfish trap near the two mountains called Ingriaraak. The Ingriaraak Mountains are located between the villages of Chefornak and Nightmute beyond the Kolavinarak (Qalvinraaq) River (Alaska)
The man said that the weather that day was beautiful and balmy. He decided it would be a good day to take his son out to check the trap for blackfish. They snow machined to where the trap was set and checked the trap.
However, when they were done and ready to go back home to Toksook Bay, the snow machine’s puller came off and could not start. They were stranded so the two climbed one of the Ingriaraak and got a cell phone signal. The man called home and asked for someone to come and get them.
After calling, the man and his son walked down back to the snow machine to wait. It started to rain and the boy was getting cold. The boy wanted to start walking and since there had been no reports of upcoming bad weather for that day and the trail markers were visible, the two decided to start walking back towards Nightmute.
The man wanted to bring home his catch, so he unhooked his sled from behind the snow machine and pulled it behind him while walking. His son rode in the sled for a while and then got out to walk beside his father. They were still quite away from reaching the Qalvinraaq River.
They had been walking for about an hour when the man happened to look behind them. About 200 yards away there, behind them, was a very tall, large, dark, strong-looking, muscular person-like creature standing, watching them. The man’s heart quailed but he did not show it to his son. His son, in the meantime, also saw the creature and waved to it, thinking it was a member of the search and rescue team coming to get them.
At this point, the thought that it may be Bigfoot did not cross the man’s mind. Fear flooded his mind, thinking it was an alangruq, or ghost. The man remembered his mother’s words to not look back no matter how powerful the urge was to turn and look. He maintained his control and calmly told his son not to wave at the creature or to look at it.
Soon they continued walking towards Nightmute, following the trail markers because the man knew that any search and rescue party would be coming for them following that same well-marked trail.
Only when he saw the lights of the oncoming snow machines did he dare look back. And when he did, he did not see anything except the frozen tundra. He told the rescuers about what they had seen and experienced and asked if they could all go back to see if there were any footprints made by the creature. But no, the rescuers did not want to. It was getting dark and they were anxious to get back to the village.
During the time when they were walking, the man had taken out his phone to record what was behind him, pointing the phone over his shoulder without looking behind him. When they were safely in the village at Nightmute and eating at the home of a friend, the man told them what they had seen. He remembered his recording and took out his cell phone to view the footage, but alas, it had been somehow accidentally erased or deleted, or there was the possibility that he might not have hit the recording button at all.
His sharp-eyed son also described the creature as a yugpak, a very large person. He said the shoulders were very broad and powerful. The arms were long and strong-looking, like a wrestler’s arms. They reached down to its knees. There were also some light-colored markings or textures on the creature’s chest and stomach where the muscles stood out.
Back home in Toksook, the man told his wife and it made her feel scared. He told his wife’s parents, his parents, his grandparents, and his friends what they had seen. The next day he read about the Bigfoot sighting that occurred in the spring of 2012 in Kasigluk in the latest issue of the Delta Discovery, the January 16th, 2013 edition. It was the first published eyewitness account of a sighting in the newspaper.
The following day the man wanted to go back to that same area to look for footprints but the weather turned, and a blizzard blew in so he stayed home.
Leave it to a small town in upstate New York to adopt an urban legend as its “official animal.”The village of Whitehall, population 2,556, has adopted Bigfoot as its “official animal” in a measure that passed 4-0, according to The Whitehall Times, the town’s newspaper.
The measure is seen as nothing more than a publicity stunt, according to former trustee Mike LaChapelle, but it is likely to get people talking one way or another.
“It can’t hurt,” said trustee George Armstrong. “It’s very well written by the way.”
The resolution came from Dave Molenaar, who identified himself as a member of the Bigfoot Tourism Council of Whitehall to the Albany Times Union.
The town’s mayor, Phil Smith, said every last Saturday of September will “be officially known as Sasquatch Appreciation Day and that Sasquatch shall be the official animal of the village of Whitehall.”
It’s a curious decision for Whitehall to adopt Bigfoot as its official animal, even though the town already has multiple statues and an annual festival for Sasquatch, according to WTEN.
In 1976, three people reported that had they seen “a large, ape-like creature between 7-feet and 8-feet tall, darting toward their car,” according to CryptoZooNews.com. It’s unclear if the creature that was seen also starred in “Harry & the Hendersons,” but you never know.
According to The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, there have been 103 sightings in New York State, most recently in June 2015, when a married couple claimed to see it while boating on Lake George.
The legendary Bigfoot has had a whirlwind couple of years, most likely because it is trying to become an Instagram influencer or go glamping, like any good millennial. In October 2017, Bigfoot was reportedly spotted in Northern California, but only because he had gotten greedy and tried to eat a pig.
Jeffrey Gonzalez, a self-described paranormal expert, said he heard about the sighting from a local farmer who said he saw the creature and five others running on his ranch near Avocado Lake.
“One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder,” Gonzalez said in comments obtained by Fox 26, a Fox News affiliate. “The five scattered and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and it tripped, with the pig flying over.”
In March, the residents of Wapum, Pa. held their annual Bigfoot hunt, but surprisingly came up empty-handed.
The Pembrokeshire haunted Road trip created by The Paranormal Chronicles and its sister site Pembrokeshire Beyond urged paranormal enthusiasts to seek out paranormal adventure searching for the Myths and legends at Nevern, The flying Coffin of Clarbeston, The Waterson lady, The Teenage phantom at Newgale, the Ghost Children at St Govan and many more.
We have collated over 2500 reports in Pembrokeshire alone in the last 4 years. The paranormal Chronicles is truly dedicated to researching and investigating the wonderous paranormal events in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
With all that said we have one character, one spectre, one haunting that best selling Author G L Davies has personally been investigating for over 20 years. This character has had more sightings than of any paranormal entity in Pembrokeshire.
For over 300 years it has been seen.
The Monk of Haverfordwest…
He makes his way down union hill that many locals have walked or driven. From the waist down, he is invisible as he travels a long-buried and forgotten footpath. This shadowy spectre has been seen many times with the first known report made in 1729 of a cowled and dark apparition making its way to the old Augustinian Priory.
Mr Rob Richards of Haverfordwest reminisced about a sightings, in the 1950’s, at the end of Quay street where a hooded figure was said to disappear into a gate at the bottom of Union Hill while more recent reports have seen a hooded figure making its way up Tower-hill at the top of Haverfordwest and another seeing a monk-like figure traversing the Rifleman’s field near Winch Lane
On the evening 25th 2018 March, a lady was walking her dog at the Priory Ruin at approx. 10 pm when she was startled by what appeared to be a figure stood in the corner of one of the ruined abbey buildings illuminated by her head torch. Fearing it was a living person skulking in the darkness she quickly hurried away but her dog froze and barked hysterically. When she turned back the torch revealed no one stood there. The figure has vanished in the blink of an eye.
Now as interesting as that may be, could it easily be just a person or possibly a misidentified shadow or bricks within the wall resembling a person.
On Monday 2nd April 2018 we received a message through our Facebook page from a gentleman called Mark who said that while again walking a dog at night at the old priory ruin, that he saw a figure walking towards him in the mist. He said in his torchlight the mist looked like it was forming into a shape, the shape of a man. He claims that the human-shaped mist appeared to have a hood and he could make out the movement of an arm. This dog again reacted defensively but as quickly as the figure had appeared it had vanished.
On Dec 4th around 1:45am on a disappointing cloudy night to capture supermoon pictures G L Davies ended up at his old haunt, Priory ruins, to take some picture and use the opportunity to investigate the Priory ruins monk.
He has charted the monk’s path over the years which starts from St Marys Church retracing the steps of the first of two monks that haunt Haverfordwest. The Brown monk takes a different route and heads into Haverfordwest, towards the Friars,
Taking bursts of pictures along the way, he took several dozen at the ruins and headed home.
G L Davies said ” I am not gifted in that I have no abilities, I witness very little on investigation and since I suffered a mini stroke I am more susceptible to tiredness but during my saunter to the ruins I did feel as if I were being watched and several times felt that the rain and mist was very clumped together in places, which in itself could be an atmospheric solution to what’s happening down there. As per usual With All my pictures and audio I volunteer them to independent researchers for data analysis. I’ve had them back and a few were very interesting.“
He continued, “ I am well aware that the power of suggestion is very much at play, in one of the pictures it may just be a person wandering around late at night…I was and that in some cases you can’t really see anything until its pointed out.”
In Picture A – Like the witness claimed a mist appears to be taking the form of a hooded figure, yes very convenient, but what was of interest was that the mist seems to be in two layers to create this effect, almost 3D, in relation to its surroundings it would be approx. 5 feet 3 inches tall and around 50 centimetres broad.
The large head area does look hooded and an arm could be possibly part of the form. Again not a solid shape and more than likely just a mist illuminated by the camera. What can you see? What do you think?
In this second Picture taken across the Abby, there appears to be a solid figure stood at ground level. Unlike the mist apparition, this has more form and could be possibly just another person strolling the ruins. The light that was identified as an orb but G L Davies can confirm it is one of the street lights from the poet’s corner area as he has been able to capture it several more times. The figure he has not. Could the two incidents be related or are they merely coincidental?
We will include many of the pictures for you to peruse as We would like to hear your feedback. What do you see? What are your theories? Can you pick up on something we have missed? Have you had your own experience with the Monk? If you have any form of interest and you live in Pembrokeshire then we strongly encourage you to investigate.
G L Davies has said. ” I shall continue the search, I shall continue the investigation…but what is more effective than one man with a lifetime of passion and experience to investigate our friend the ghostly monk?….an entire county of people!! The hunt is on!”
St Mary’s Haverfordwest. Has a ghostly monk been seen leaving this building?It is here that in the early 1980’s that reports surfaced of a hooded figure making its way down the stone steps and disappearing onto the road that is Tower Hill. Could people from the modern day be seeing the replay of a person long now deceased making their habitual journey from the Church to a destination unknown?
Could it be this shadowy person that is seen in Haverfordwest making its way to the Augustinian Priory?One of the Historical gems at St Mary’s is an effigy of a medieval pilgrim. His identity is unknown but it is hypothesized that he was staying at Haverfordwest on a pilgrimage to St David’s. Dating from around 1450 this is the oldest monument in the church. Could this be the man behind the apparition?
The earliest registers date to 1590 and are probably the oldest to survive in Pembrokeshire. However is our pedestrian phantom from a much earlier time period? paranormal enthusiasts spend most of their time at The Priory Ruin in search of this notorious ghost however it is the route he is most often seen on which yields the most
That is where this silent soul makes its way through the sleeping town. We believe there are either two routes or two hooded figures walking the town after the sunsets.
Route 1 leads from St Marys and up to Tower Hill. From here it is seen submerged in the ground at Rifleman’s field and then has been twice at the entrance to Clay lane. Clay Lane is the road connecting to Union Hill ( And possibly the most haunted road in Pembrokeshire – see archives). Union Hill is the most common location for a sighting of the monk.
Route 2 again begins at St Mary’s and is not seen again till the footpath by St Thomas Church. The figure has been seen once again submerged into the concrete and making its way on the path by the Tennis courts and back towards Union Hill.
Having spoken to recent witnesses about the sightings they encountered we have two points of detail that could help us understand more about the spooky traveller. One is seen to be in a brown or dark robe and the other in grey. Both similar routes but Where were both monks heading to?
There are in fact TWO ghostly monks in Haverfordwest wearing different robes and taking two routes.
Haverfordwest Priory was a house of Augustinian Canons Regular on the banks of the Western Cleddau at Haverfordwest. Dedicated to St. Mary and St. Thomas the Martyr and situated on land given by Robert de Haverford, it was first mentioned around 1200.
From 1983 to 1986 the site was excavated so that the outlines of the buildings can be seen. Much of the architectural material discovered was of a very good standard and can be seen in Haverfordwest museum. The excavations also revealed a medieval garden complete with raised beds, unique as the only surviving ecclesiastical medieval gardens in Britain and the beds have now been replanted with simple plants appropriate to the period.Priory Ruin, Haverfordwest. Is this the destination of a ghostly monk?
Priory Ruin, Haverfordwest. Is this the destination of a ghostly monk?
Could it be possible that modern locals in Pembrokeshire are viewing a monk traveling home to his Priory hundreds of years later? The distinctive habit of the canon regular that would have been situated at the priory is the rochet, worn over a cassock or tunic, which is indicative of their clerical origins. This has evolved in various ways among different congregations, from wearing the full rochet to the wearing of a white tunic and scapular. Could this have been misidentified in the night time by confounded witnesses as a grey hooded robe?
The monks at this time would have worn something similar to this.
Much work needs to be done and we ask everyone that travels these points to please be vigilant and feel free to report to us any feelings, findings or sightings.
Please, may we note that should you pass the monk on his way home not to be alarmed? In the centuries of sightings, all he has done is simply making his way home.
We have given you a small look into a fascinating metaphysical mystery and much more research and the investigation has to be conducted into the history, geography, and people of Haverfordwest from this ancient time.
It may be that with the correct research we can correctly identify the route and the person using it. There is so much to look into and it gives such incredible insight into the development of the town. This is truly a wondrous chiller that demands dedication and research. This is a riddle that connects the old and new. It can be a glimpse into the past.
Scientists have made the most precise measurement of the universe’s expansion ever – and found a very strange result indeed.
The Nasa research used two space telescopes to work out exactly how quickly the universe was growing. Discovering that important number could help understand where the cosmos came from and where it is going.
But the new precise measurement actually leads to more confusion than it dispels. There seems to be a strange mismatch in the way the universe is expanding – a discovery that could suggest there is an entirely new physics underpinning the universe, waiting to be found.
he mysterious results could be caused by dark matter, dark energy is even more exotic than previously thought, or an unknown new particle in the tapestry of space, Nasa said.
Scientists have long been attempting to work out the rate the universe is expanding – known as the Hubble constant – as precisely as they possibly can. Discovering how quickly it has been growing since the big bang 13.8 billion years ago could answer the most fundamental questions about where the universe came from and where it is going.
But as the measurements have become more precise, they have also become more different. The results that come out of the different ways of measuring the rate of expansion are at odds with each other.
Astronomers have a picture of where the universe was near its beginning, and a measurement of how fast it has expanded since – with those, they should be able to predict where it is now, but the result they get is wrong. That suggests there is either something wrong with the measurements or with our understanding of the universe.
Scientists had initially been concerned that the discrepancy was the result of an error in one or more of the ways that they are trying to measure the constant. But the new research suggests that is not the case, and that the measurements are correct – but that something undiscovered is changing the way the universe is expanding.
One measurement comes from ESA’s Planck mission, which mapped the universe as it looked only 360,000 years after it came into being. By looking at that map, scientists can work out the speed at which the universe came to be where it is today.
But the new Nasa research shows that the expansion rate calculated from that data does not match up with the universe as we see it around us. The new data from the Hubble Space Telescope does not match up with the calculations from the Planck mission.
“The tension seems to have grown into a full-blown incompatibility between our views of the early and late time universe,” said team leader and Nobel Laureate Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute and the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. “At this point, clearly it’s not simply some gross error in any one measurement.
“It’s as though you predicted how tall a child would become from a growth chart and then found the adult he or she became greatly exceeded the prediction. We are very perplexed.”
A MAN who pretended to be a ghost to manipulate a teenage girl into having sex with him has been jailed for 26 years.
Liam Clarke, 35, of Crediton, Devon, was found guilty of 16 offences against three victims, including rape of a child, sexual assault and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. Clarke knew one of his victims, a 15-year-old girl, had a fear of evil spirits after a bad experience when experimenting with an Ouija board.
The Mirror reports he exploited her fears and naivety by telling her that her house was haunted. He then pushed notes under her bedroom door pretending to be from a ghost. The notes threatened the girl and her family and said the only way to get rid of the demon was by having sex with Clarke.
He also produced a note he claimed he’d been sent by the ghost, ordering him to have sex with the girl. Despite her objection, Clarke threatened the girl and used her fear of the occult “to secure her quite unwilling compliance”, said Judge David Evans at Exeter Crown Court.
Clarke also sexually abused two other young girls by putting coins in his underpants and getting them to play a game of hide and seek. All the offences took place between 1997 and 2016 in Torquay, Crediton, and Hampshire.
Clarke was jailed today for 26 years, with an additional two years extended license. The judge declared him a dangerous offender, which means he will remain in prison indefinitely. He will only be released when and if he is considered safe by the parole board.
He was also put on the Sex Offenders Register for life and made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, which restricts his future contact with female children.
DC Katy King, of the Public Protection Unit in Exeter, said: “It has been an extremely traumatic and emotional time for all three victims.
“He has been on remand since July 2017 and this result finally provides these vulnerable victims with some closure.”
There have been many claims of time travel ranging from pictures including people holding mobile phones from 1928, and a hipster in 1941.Rudolph Fentz is an urban legend from the 1950s. He was hit by a car while wearing clothing from the 19th century and carrying items in his possession suggested he had traveled from 1876 to 1950.
Billy Meier claimed he was taken into outer space by aliens and traveled back in time to meet Jesus Christ and photographed dinosaurs. John Titor claimed on online bulletin boards he was a time traveler from 2036 sent back on a military mission and Andrew Carlssin was arrested in 2003 for making 126 high-risk stock trades and being successful on everyone. In a confession, he claimed to be a time traveler.
A “TIME traveler” made headlines when he passed a lie detector test after claiming he was from the year 2030 and now he has stunned an Australian radio audience with baffling his predictions. The man called “Noah” passed a lie detector where he claimed Donald Trump will be re-elected and artificial intelligence will take over.
He went on to stun Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O as he predicted that there will be a 21-year-old female President called Ilana Remikee who will become President in 2030.
The man, whose face and voice was distorted to hide his identity, said on Sydney’s KIIS 106.5: “She’s the granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr. She’s 21 at the time, but they pass a new law that basically makes it so you can be younger as president.”
When pressed about who will be the President of the US after Donald Trump, the time traveler said he cannot say who it is because the “President does something really bad” and “is a current political figure at the moment”.
Noah claims he is older than he looks because he takes “anti-ageing pills” to keep him the same age while he time travels.
He said: “When you time travel you gain time. When I was in junior high and I was a time traveler, I had to take these pills to make sure I don’t grow old while time traveling.”
Radio host Kyle pressed: “’So the pills are to keep you the age you are? Not make you younger?” To which Noah said that was correct.
The time traveler also says people will be able to make “designer babies” but it will be expensive, that Google Glass-style robotics will spread across the globe and that technology will have developed to the point where it can run a home independently.
He also claims bitcoin will be popular, but normal currency will still be in use. On Apex TV he passed the lie detector test with flying colors.
The interview begins and Noah is asked a simple question: ”Are you an actual time traveller from the year 2030?” He responds with a yes and “true” appears in large green letters superimposed on the video. However, the results on the machine are not shown.
However, critics have been quick to point out that viewers do not see the results of the lie detector tests. One viewer said: “All Apex TV does is flash an answer on the screen with a ding noise, that doesn’t truly validate the lie detector.
“You can see Noah fidgeting around with the monitors strapped around his fingers and I myself know from first-hand experience that when you take a lie detector test you are supposed to sit back and remain completely still.”
It should also be noted that lie detector results are not admissible in court due to many different factors which may affect results including people manipulating readings.
Noah thinks that a Google Glass-style device will be worn by everyone.
He thinks self-driving and driverless cars will improve.
He promises AI and virtual reality will be popular, and renewable energy will take off.
He also tells us that Donald Trump will win a second term in office.
He revealed to an Australian radio station that Martin Luther King Jr’s granddaughter will be president in 2030.

It was walking alongside a hedge, and it was huge
It has become almost an accepted phenomenon right across North America – but now a man has reported that he saw a Bigfoot-like creature walking in a field just ten miles from Bristol.
The eye-witness said he was on a train from Exeter to Bristol Temple Meads, which was approaching the city on a bright Friday morning in November last year when he saw a massive creature taking huge strides along a hedgerow.
The report was made to the British Bigfoot Sightings group – a team of researchers based around the country who collect and investigate sightings of upright hairy ape-like creatures in this country.
The man reported that he left Exeter late in the morning, and there were few people on the train as it approached Bristol.
“In my carriage was probably ten to 12 people – most of them with their head in either mobile phones or morning newspapers,” he told researchers.
“I haven’t been on a train for years, so I was keen to take in the scenery. About ten miles from Bristol we were traveling through an area and in the fields to my right I saw something large in the middle of the field walking, it was walking kind of hunched over, and all I could tell you was it was a black figure. At a guess, I would’ve said it was 70 to 100 meters away from the train. My eyes were glued on it at this point. I was watching the way the ‘thing’ was walking, almost towards the side of the field, it was edged right up to the hedgerow as if to walk alongside the hedge itself, almost like it was using the hedge for cover? To my eye whatever it was seemed to take massive strides, and ‘it’ was covering the ground very quickly. As I spun my head to the left to see if anybody else on the train had seen what I was looking at, I was surprised to see that nobody was really looking out from the seats in my direction, or any direction other than down to be fair,” he added.
If the eye-witness’s judgment that the sighting took place around ten miles before the train arrived at Temple Meads is accurate, it would put the sighting to the south of the railway line between Nailsea and Yatton stations.
The countryside at this point is a low-lying wetland, between the M5 and the wooded hillside escarpment that runs up to Bristol Airport.
“I would imagine five to ten seconds was all I saw it for,” the eyewitness added.
“But it stood out to me as strange. To start off with, I didn’t think it was a Bigfoot or anything like that until I watched how it walked and the way it hugged the hedgerow. I thought it was just somebody walking through a field, and if they were not acting in such a strange manner, with a strange gait, and hugging the bushes to stay hidden, surely a person wouldn’t do that? Or would look like that? Then, about two minutes later, after viewing this figure I saw a couple walking a collie dog in a field, roughly the same distance that I’d seen the black figure. They were to the side of the hedge line. I was gobsmacked to see that I could hardly make them out, I mean, I knew they were humans walking with the dog but I couldn’t really see what they were wearing apart from the brightly colored coats. And it dawned on me that they were probably of average size male and female, although what I had seen five minutes earlier was clearly not. It was an all-black figure in a field, ‘it’ was huge. I could see the black figured arms and legs and chest, compared to the two humans I had just seen walking the dog.”
“At the point of seeing the black figure, I realize the tree line behind it was probably around 200 m away and had a thick dense forest behind it. I have no proof whatsoever to show you, only my word. I’m 100 percent sure what I saw was the English Bigfoot – and what makes me so confident is the way it walked, with slightly bent legs, long strides but a graceful fluid walking motion,” he added.
While sightings of a hairy creature which walks on two legs are an almost daily occurrence somewhere in North America – and the subject of TV series, books, and films – even seasoned Bigfoot experts have questioned whether the animal could exist in the British Isles.
But sightings continue to be reported to British Bigfoot researchers, from the dense woods of Suffolk to the remote mountains of Scotland. There have always been folklore tales of a hairy man-like creature living in forests of England – back in the Middle Ages they were known as ‘woodwose’.
Bizarre footage has emerged that appears to show the folklore legend alive and out for a stroll. The video – captured from a dashcam reveals a large ape-like figure walking alongside the main road. A closer look does not provide any more clarity though. The fearless bunch swing their vehicle around and decide to pursue the creature on foot.
Running through heavy snow they eventually come within meters of the unknown figure. But it quickly scurries away before we can get a closer look.
The footage was originally captured in the Russian city of Severodvinsk on February 18. But it has gained popularity after being shared on popular YouTube conspiracy page Bigfoot Tony today.
And viewers were quick to speculate. One comment read: “This has got to mean Bigfoot is in Russia.”
And another added: “Great footage here. I love how fearless the Russians generally are. You should see how they react around bears.”
Before a third simply stated: “This one looks genuine.”
Bizarre footage has emerged that proves we are not alone in the universe – according to wild claims online.
The video was captured by NASA’s International Space Station on Friday and it appears to show a spaceship lurking in the background. The small orb-like object floats nearby the artificial satellite before appearing to glow and release smaller objects.
It then slowly fades out and disappears completely into the darkness. It was captured and shared on popular YouTube conspiracy channel The Hidden Underbelly 2.0.
The title read: “This UFO appeared on live cam and spit out an orb that quickly came closer to the space station. As the orb left the main ship, it was visible. However, its systems seem to become activated after it left, because it soon cloaked.”
The clip comes amid rising concerns of an alien invasion. Only last week we saw similar scenes after a larger “cloaked object” was spotted on the feed – before it was cut.
Neil Bailey, 43, has lived in the semi-detached house in Leeds, West Yorks, for around 12 years and heard stories that it was haunted by an elderly man in a flat cap – but is fiction becoming a reality?
A HOMEOWNER was left stunned upon discovering that an old ghost story about his house could be true. Neil Bailey has lived in the Leeds, West Yorks, home for 12 years and during the time had heard stories that it was haunted by an elderly man in a flat cap.
But much to the 43-year-old’s surprise, it might just all be true.
After looking at his house on Google Street View, Neil spotted an eerie shape of an “old man in a flat cap wearing a trench coat” stalking through his garden.
The odd shape can be seen upon zooming in on the property’s back gate – leaving Neil saying he is “unable to debunk it”.
He then shared the image on social media to see what other ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts thought. Neil wrote: “Apparently, my house could be haunted by an elderly man, who wears a flat cap. “Since, I have discovered this official picture from the Google Street cam site!The gate has a bamboo screen attached to it with absolutely nothing behind it. You can clearly see an old man wearing a flat cap behind it. To me, it looks like he is wearing a long trench coat. I’ve tried to debunk the image but I am unable to do so. I think the thing that impresses me the most is that I know the picture is from an official source and has definitely 100% not being edited or taken by me.”
She has been adamant that her house is haunted for a number of years. Katie Price shared a string of spooky snaps from her Sussex mansion to Instagram on Tuesday – in a bid to prove to fans she was in the presence of ghosts. The former glamour model, 39, posted creepy images of what she claimed to be a ‘demon’ in her mirror and a ‘little boy’ wandering in the corridor, leaving her fans horrified.
Katie kicked things off by sharing an eerie photo of one of her hallways – with a ghostly figure seemingly peeking out from the corner of a wall. Convinced there are supernatural presences in her house, the star revealed she had called in a ghost hunter and had snapped the spooky sighting while exploring the depths of her own home.
She wrote in the caption: ‘Omg so shocked to capture so much with just a phone for a camera when Ghost Hunting with @MrLeeRoberts around my house! So many ghostly figures and strange apparitions, some we could easily explain, but these are some of the best ones.’
She went on to share a number of other creepy images from her sprawling abode – with one appearing to show a figure lying down, captioned: ‘I took this of my mirror when in my bed looks like a profile of a demon, what do you reckon ?’
Despite taking a photo of her mirror, which no doubt displayed her reflection, she wrote beside another snap: ‘I can see a massive face in this too actually looks like me! I have so much footage and pictures! I’m so not scared but want to know more.’
She rounded off the chilling social media display with a snap of a fuzzy figure in one of her dark rooms, writing: ‘Another one of what looks like a little boy !’, before adding in disbelief: ‘All these in my house!’
Katie, who recently appeared on Celebrity Haunted Mansion, reportedly first brought in ghost hunter Lee in January, after years of discussing her experiences with the supernatural. Speaking on Loose Women last year, the star explained she is convinced she is haunted, as a psychic once told her spirits are attracted to her ‘aura’.
She said: ‘I had a house that had memories. It was amazing but I couldn’t understand why it had been up for sale for two years and no one had bought it. So I bought it and I had so many ghostly experiences there that I ended up having mediums come round and they told me what happened.’
Revealing she then discovered the property had been built on top of a nursing home, she added: ‘The orangery where the swimming pool was I found out was where they put the bodies and stuff. So many things happened there, with water and other stuff.’
However, she revealed ghost hunters and psychics alike have said that her ‘aura’ is attractive to ghosts, hence why she has had so many supernatural experiences.
‘Most of my houses are haunted,’ she continued. ‘When I’ve had mediums round they say it’s me. I have an aura around me.’
She even revealed her children had endured the same ghostly encountered – recalling a time son Junior, 12, woke her up screaming in the night, after claiming to have seen a spooky figure outside.
Scientists have revealed the origins of a mysterious skeleton long thought to have been extra-terrestrial.After five years of examination, a research team unravelled the genetic make-up of the bizarre specimen found in the Atacama Desert in 2003, and nicknamed “Ata”.
Led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University, forensic analysis of the remains revealed they undoubtedly belonged to a human, albeit one with severe and previously unknown genetic mutations.
The skeleton, which was discovered in a leather pouch behind an abandoned church and has been dated approximately to the 1970s, has been the subject of intense speculation among online alien enthusiasts ever since it was revealed to the world.
Prominent among these has been Steven Greer, director of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence and the Disclosure Project, who produced a documentary featuring the Ata skeleton called Sirius.
Standing at 15 centimetres tall, the skeleton has an elongated skull, slanted eye sockets and only 10 pairs of ribs instead of the usual 12. Despite its tiny stature, the bone development of the skeleton matches that of a six-year-old child.
Since its initial discovery, Ata was sold on to the black market and eventually passed into the hands of a Spanish businessman. Dr Garry Nolan, a microbiologist at Stanford University, first heard of the specimen through a friend and resolved to get to the bottom of its mysterious origins.
“You can’t look at this specimen and not think it’s interesting; it’s quite dramatic,” said Dr Nolan, “So I told my friend, ‘Look, whatever it is, if it’s got DNA, I can do the analysis.”
After contacting the makers of Sirius, Dr Nolan and his colleagues were given the opportunity to undertake just such an analysis. Having examined the remains, they concluded the skeleton undoubtedly belonged to a female human foetus with a mix of Native American and European ancestry, although the reason for her unusual appearance remained unknown.
For the next stage of the investigation, Dr Atul Butte joined the team to help understand exactly what genetic factors resulted in the specimen’s appearance. Earlier analysis had demonstrated that the Ata skeleton had plenty of high-quality DNA for modern sequencing technology to unravel.
Using cutting-edge techniques, the scientists found rare mutations linked to dwarfism and a variety of other bone and growth disorders. The investigation also revealed four genetic mutations presumed to be involved with bone diseases, all of which were previously unknown to science.
These mutations are the cause of both Ata’s unusual appearance and the premature ageing of her bones, which made her appear much older than she really was.
“When doctors perform analyses for patients and their families, we’re often searching for one cause – one super-rare or unusual mutation that can explain the child’s ailment. But in this case, we’re pretty confident that multiple things went wrong,” said Dr Butte.
The results of this analysis were published in the journal Genome Research. Besides solving a 15-year-old mystery, the scientists say the success of their project could be used for modern medicine as well and points to ways in which complex living cases can be handled.
“The phenotype, the symptoms and size of this girl were extremely unusual, and analysing these kinds of really puzzling, old samples teaches us better how to analyse the DNA of kids today under current conditions,” said Dr Nolan,”For me, what really came of this study was the idea that we shouldn’t stop investigating when we find one gene that might explain a symptom. It could be multiple things going wrong, and it’s worth getting a full explanation, especially as we head closer and closer to gene therapy,” said Dr Butte.
“We could presumably one day fix some of these disorders.”
As Ata is definitely not an alien, and her remains are probably no more than 40 years old, Dr Nolan said he hoped one day she would be given a proper burial.
“We now know that it’s a child, and probably either a pre- or post-term birth and death,” he said,”I think it should be returned to the country of origin and buried according to the customs of the local people.”
OVER THE LAST TWO CENTURIES, the U.S. Capitol Building, with its underground passages and echoing side chambers, has amassed its fair share of ghost stories. Whether it’s the spectre of a lost Civil War soldier from the building’s brief stint as a wartime hospital, or the ghost of John Quincy Adams shouting his final words in the Speaker’s Lobby, the Capitol Building is a ghost hunter’s dream. But few such stories have captured the public’s imagination like that of the Demon Cat.
“It’s probably the most common of all the ghost stories in the capitol. Partly because of the physical evidence,” says Steve Livengood, the chief tour guide of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society.
Tales of a spectral feline known as the “Demon Cat” (initials “D.C.,” get it?!) date back to at least the 19th century. Since joining the USCHS in 1973, Livengood has become an expert on the tale.
“The story probably goes back to the post–Civil War era. The main thing is that the people who would see it particularly were the night watchmen,” says Livengood. The most common version of the legend goes that a guard was on patrol one night when he saw a black cat approaching. In those days, cats were not an uncommon sight in the building, introduced to control the rodent population. However as the cat came closer, it grew in size until it was as large as a tiger. The monster cat pounced on the guard, who fell down and tried to protect himself, but the creature vanished in mid-air.
Like most ghost stories, tales of the Demon Cat have a number of variations. Later sightings are said to have scared people to death. The cat’s appearances have also been linked to national tragedies and presidential transitions.
What’s kept the legend alive all this time? A couple of features in the Capitol Building are said to be evidence of the Demon Cat’s existence. The most famous of these is a group of shallow paw prints in the concrete of the Small Senate Rotunda. In 1898, the Capitol Building was damaged by a gas explosion, and according to Livengood, in some spots the original stone was replaced by concrete. “It’s quite possible that a cat walked across the wet concrete,” he says. “Just enough to leave some impressions. It’s as you come out of the Old Supreme Court Chamber. There may be six or eight pretty clear ones.” In another part of the building, Livengood also notes that the letters “DC” have been scratched into the concrete. “Everyone says, ‘That’s the Demon Cat putting its initials there!’”
As much fun as it is to believe that there’s a monster cat prowling the midnight halls of the U.S. Capitol, Livengood isn’t having it. “I can put enough pieces together to know where the legend came from,” he says. “The night watchmen were not professionals. They would often be some senator’s ne’er-do-well brother-in-law that had a drinking problem.”
Livengood’s theory is these early Capitol guards would often get so drunk they’d fall down, so when one of the building’s cats came and licked their face, they assumed it must have been monster-sized. But when the guard in question reported their ravings to a superior, the boss couldn’t really discipline him for drinking because of his high-powered connections, so the guard would simply have been sent home to recover. “Then the other guards realize that if they see the cat and get attacked, then they get a day off. And that’s how history gets written,” says Livengood.
Livengood says that while he regularly gets asked about the Demon Cat, or sees visitors using their cell phones to illuminate the faint paw prints in the Small Senate Rotunda, he’s never heard of a modern sighting of the creature. “I’ve never had anyone who felt they had an experience like that,” he says.
Still, Livengood sees ghost stories as an important part of the building’s history. “They humanize the building,” he says. “One of the things I try to get across to people as I’m giving a tour is that the spirit of the people who built the building and the people who have acted out history in it are still there. And you can feel it.”
A lawsuit filed by a Crestline woman demanding that the state recognize the Sasquatch, aka “Bigfoot,” as an official species has been dismissed.
The court dismissed the case at the request of petitioner Claudia Ackley, on March 15, court records show.Ackley said her attorneys advised her to drop the lawsuit she filed Jan. 18 in San Bernardino Superior Court against the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Natural Resources Agency. She plans to refile the suit so it is compliant with the rules of the court. A hearing that was scheduled for Monday, March 19, was vacated by the judge.
“The attorneys wanted me to stop it and then for them to rewrite it,” Ackley said, adding that her attorneys told her if she had gone forward with her original filing, she would have been “eaten alive.”
In a March 17 Facebook post, Ackley informed her friends, “I only get one chance and I must do it correctly in order to proceed.”
Ackley, 46, teamed up with documentary filmmaker Todd Standing, the man behind the Netflix film “Discovering Bigfoot” in drafting the original lawsuit. Standing, who had a similar lawsuit filed in British Columbia, Canada, where he resides.
Standing said Tuesday that he, Ackley and a paralegal wrote the first lawsuit themselves, which was not vetted by any lawyers.
“There’s so many things a lawyer has to do appropriately. We now have a team of lawyers in the U.S. who are going to put it together,” Standing said in a telephone message. “They have to interview all the witnesses. They have a lot of work to do. The legal action is going to be enormous now.”
Ackley’s Texas-based attorney, Bobby Garcia, could not immediately be reached for comment.
Ackley and Standing said they plan to present evidence proving the existence of Sasquatch, including testimony from wildlife biologists, wilderness experts and police forensic officers. They said they also will introduce fingerprint, footprint, and even DNA evidence from hair samples Standing said he obtained from a tree during a 2014 expedition.
Yet even the most devout Bigfoot aficionados have their doubts about Ackley and her lawsuit.
“I suspect it will be dismissed for lack of evidence,” said Daniel Perez, a Riverside-based Bigfoot researcher and historian who publishes the monthly Bigfoot Times newsletter. “I can’t see the matter getting any legal footing.”
Ackley’s claims of encountering three Sasquatches in Lake Arrowhead last March while hiking with her two daughters are the only documented claims on record of a Bigfoot sighting in the mountain resort community, Perez said.
“I did talk with some people at the Bigfoot Bonanza just recently who live near Claudia, and they know the area well and they reported that outside of Claudia and her claims, no one else is reporting anything like Bigfoot in the area,” Perez said. “This whole matter is bad publicity for the serious Bigfoot community and just one more reason why a great many folks across the nation take the matter with a grain of salt.”
Larry Newman, a retired deputy sheriff’s detective, was just one of the speakers at the Bigfoot Field Research Organization meeting on Saturday, March 17, in Jay.
Larry Newman was just one of the speakers at the Bigfoot Field Research Organization meeting on Saturday, March 17, in Jay. Approximately 30 people were present for the four-hour meeting.
There have been several reports of Bigfoot sightings all over Delaware County, including in Grove and by the Pensacola Dam, Newman said. He claimed Bigfoot inhabits areas where there is good food, clean water, and good terrain.
“We have people that make up stuff,” Newman said of reported Bigfoot sightings. “But we know the difference.”
He said there have been a couple of sightings in southern Delaware County within the last two weeks. The problem, he said, is that when members of the Bigfoot researchers group interview witnesses, they are often told that 25 other people have seen the same thing but are embarrassed to talk about it.
Newman, a retired deputy sheriff’s detective from Jasper County, Missouri, is a certified crime scene investigator who is trained in interrogation and interviewing techniques.
Those skills — listening, documenting, investigating — “prove or disprove” a person’s claim of spotting Bigfoot, he said.
“We follow-up on the evidence,” Newman said.Some of the evidence that is tested is hair samples, he said.
“The DNA analysis comes back unknown — no known animal,” Newman said. Other evidence is footprints, he said.
One sighting was near Bull Holler in the Kenwood area, and another was east of Jay near Colcord.
Newman said the witnesses described the Bigfoot sightings near Colcord as two roughly 4-foot-tall creatures walking on two legs. Ron Boles, another speaker, said the creature near Kenwood was 6-feet-tall and ran across the road in front of witnesses.
Boles shared with the audience how he became involved and showed several YouTube videos of his night-time adventures.
“You will never hear me say it was 100 percent Bigfoot — but you will hear me says it is interesting,” Boles said, referring to the evidence.
Bigfoot is often described as an undiscovered primate, he said. One question the men said they had never encountered before Saturday’s meeting dealt with the interaction between domestic animals and Bigfoot.
No one wants to report a sighting, Boles said, because “no one wants to be the village idiot. “But he told the crowd, “Don’t let anybody sway or embarrass you.”
One of the highlights of the meeting was a telephone call from Matt Moneymaker, the Bigfoot Field Research Organization founder who appears on the reality television show “Finding Bigfoot.”
Moneymaker spoke to the crowd via speakerphone about some of the sightings.
“Don’t try and kill them — but film them,” he said.

The courage it took to tell a story of the supernatural that drove one to the depths of depression is to be admired. G L Davies accounts are raw, real and riveting
Jeremy Scott, Into The Parabnormal Radio
A paralogian to the paranormal is like a theologian to theology. A paralogian should have a good understanding of paranormal history, theory, & application. It is clearly evident that G L Davies not only has a real solid understanding of the different kinds of paranormal activity & phenomena people may experience, but he also understands the impact in which that said phenomena can have on an individual’s psychological well being as well as the parasociological implications for the surrounding family unit. G L Davies is a true paralogian through & through. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is a testament to that statement & a real pleasure to digest. I enjoyed this immensely.

G L Davies once again takes readers on a terrifying journey into madness and the unknown that will grip believers tightly and shake sceptics to their very core
Ashley Shannon, Schlock Tactics podcast
G L. Davies is up to his old tricks again in his latest book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. His nasty detailed and unimaginable horror scenarios will give some readers nightmares. I interviewed G. L Davies on my YouTube Show before and thoroughly enjoyed his previous work
Kevin Moore, The Kevin Moore Show
At Black Lotus, we pride ourselves in the exhaustive research we put into each of our episodes. Too often, people will not do the necessary legwork and research that is inherently required when investigating the paranormal. They simply parrot what others are saying and offer nothing new. This is why it was such a pleasure to discover G. L. Davies’ Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest. Written as an interview with the previous tenants of the house in which Davies once resided, it is not your typical haunted house story. While maintaining the integrity required of such research, Davies also writes with a human compassion that is rarely found among other paranormal explorers. Amazing work! We loved it!!
Damian Gray & Ralph Torlucci, Black Lotus Media Productions
G L. Davies has done it again! Having experienced his previous work I can only say that “Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest” is the natural progression to the level of master in development of suspense & the building of shock & disbelief, all leading to the realization that these horrific paranormal experiences truly DO exist!
Kat Hobson, Paranormal Experienced Radio
G L Davies masterfully brings the terror of living in a real haunted house to life again as he returns to the Horror of Haverfordwest!
Jason Bland, Paranormal Soup – LNM radio
I had the pleasure of interviewing G. L Davies on my Radio Show many years ago discussing his first book and my listeners and I were left in awe, but I must say that his current book Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest also did not disappoint. It gave me chills as read it and I was unable to put it down as I was led on a journey through this very twisted Paranormal tale. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the Paranormal and this book will definitely be put on my shows “MUST READ”List.
Christina George, Paranormal Connections Radio Show
Few of us will ever experience the paranormal in our own home. Where a place of sanctuary becomes strange and we fear for our own sanity. G L Davies takes us on a journey through the unknown with extraordinary clarity and humility. Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest will appeal to those interested in the paranormal, as well as those who want to know more about how such experiences can help us grow as a person. Life is for the living, not the dead.
Claire Elliot, The Claire Witch Files
“G L Davies is a masterful author who, once again, leads the reader through a gripping account of the paranormal. Genuinely worrying and chilling. This is a MUST read and the section on the rationale behind the haunting is worth the read alone.
Dave Dominguez , – Event Horizon online Radio show
Very creepy retell of what happened in a haunted house when a married couple lived in it for a short period of time in the late 80’s -early 90’s. I am a sceptic, but that does not mean that I could not suspend belief a few times while reading about the horrifying things that happened in that house…
Giulia Naccarato, NetGalley
I could not put this book down. I found the story to be creepy, scary and at times terrifying.
Jill Long, NetGalley
A creepy ghost story just right for this time of year as the nights draw in. Atmospheric and draws you into the story and the characters
Tracy Clarkson, NetGalley
Another creepy and scary book to read from GL Davies. This time it follows the story of another couple who lived in The House years before, the things they suffered and how it affected them. The tales are horrific and awful and I couldn’t imagine ever living through what they did. Having lived in Haverfordwest for 18 years of my life, I’m really grateful it wasn’t in this house….and I’m grateful I didn’t know it existed. This is a fantastic read if you want to read a horror that’s real life….if you’re brave enough to!
I have just finished reading this book. I still have chills up my spine. I liked the way the story was set out and really got a sense of the terror experienced by Dai and Anne. Whether you are a believer in the paranormal or not, this book is well worth a read.
