    Ep. 143 - The Mill Race Monster

    Ep. 143 - The Mill Race Monster

    The Mill Race Monster is a bipedal, 6-7 foot tall creature seen in the 83-acre Mill Race Park in Columbus, Indiana in 1974 which launched the largest monster hunt in US history. On November 1, 1974, four young women spotted the monster in the park and fled without any interaction with it, but several hours later, two girls were attacked while in their car. The one witness, Tyra Cataline, described it as having a greenish tinge to it with moss and slime on its face, and with large fangs. It attacked their car, biting and beating on the windshield trying to get into it before they were able to speed off. The police laughed off the incident until they inspected their car and found it with having damage as well as the horrific stench coming from it.

    In the next few days, a few more encounters with the Mill Race Monster occurred, with one of the witnesses suggesting that because there had been UFOs and strange lights seen over the area, that the Mill Race Monster might have been of alien origin. It was at this point, that amateur monster hunters began to pour into the area, some carrying baseball bats and shotguns. It was so bad that one night, there was reportedly over 100 cars in the park.

    Sightings of this green hairy creature only transpired for a few days in early November1974 and hasn't been seen since. What was the Mill Race Monster and why did he only hang around for a few days? Join us on episode 143 to hear more!

    Ep. 142 - Lake Ontario

    Ep. 142 - Lake Ontario

    Lake Ontario is one of the 5 Great Lakes of North America and is the 13th largest lake in the world. Lake Ontario is known for many things, including the Niagara Falls, but it is also known to have paranormal mysteries, its own Vortex/Triangle, as well as a supposed underwater alien base! A small stretch of water off of Prince Edward County on the Eastern part of Lake Ontario is called the Marysburgh Vortex or the Graveyard of Lake Ontario. There have been a multitude of shipwrecks, airplane mishaps, strange sightings, and mysterious disappearances which leads this area to be called a vortex. The Marysburgh Vortex is the most dangerous part of the lake where compasses have been known to malfunction and rapid weather changes can occur here.

    Although, the consensus is that there is a large iron deposit in the middle of the lakebed which causes the malfunctions, there are some that believe that the magnetic anomaly can be attributed to a major crossing of ley lines. There is also a ton of UFO sightings over the lake with people seeing unidentifiable objects or lights diving into & out of the lake. Some theorize that there might be an alien base located beneath the lake, and that there are several entrances located throughout. Are they interested in the area because of the ley lines, or is it something else that’s attracting them?

    Ep. 141 - The Tuttle Bottoms Monster

    Ep. 141 - The Tuttle Bottoms Monster

    The Tuttle Bottoms Monster inhabits a swampy area north of Harrisburg, Illinois in the Saline River watershed and has been haunting this area for generations. It is a gigantic ape-like, hairy creature with glowing eyes and a long snout similar to an anteater. The first report of the Tuttle Bottoms Monster occurred on August 6, 1963 when the Saline County Sheriff encountered multiple youths with guns who were searching for it in the Bottoms. In his 28 years of service, the sheriff received over 50 calls from people claiming to see this creature.

    There are some that believe that the Tuttle Bottoms Monster is actually an animal that was created by scientists and then intentionally released by the government into the area. Others believe that it could be a surviving relative of a prehistoric anteater species. Or could it be an undiscovered species?

    Ep. 140 - The Aswang

    Ep. 140 - The Aswang

    The name Aswang is applied to various shape-shifting evil creatures in the Filipino mythologies and culture. It is one of the most feared creatures in the Philippines, and depending on what region you are in, it could be a vampire, or a ghoul, or a witch, or a werebeast. Because the definitions and stories of the Aswang vary so much, there is no specific set of characteristics. But, there is one common concern for the Aswang: they are shape-shifters. They are the most powerful during the night, and although they are usually described to be secluded, they have been known to adapt in communities through marriage.

    They are known to turn into a human with long dark hair during the day, and can be fast and silent, unless they want to trick you into thinking they are farther away and will then be loud. You can use holy objects, salt, vinegar, or coat yourself in urine in order to protect yourself against the Aswang. You can also use a bolo knife on the witch Aswang by stabbing it in the back.

    Join us on episode 140 to hear more about this shape-shifting creature from the Philippines!

    Ep. 139 - Point Lookout Lighthouse

    Ep. 139 - Point Lookout Lighthouse

    The Point Lookout Lighthouse, located in Scotland, MD, sits at the entrance of the Potomac River at the southernmost tip of the Chesapeake Bay and is said to be the most haunted lighthouse in the United States. On May 3, 1825, it was decided that a light was needed at the entrance to the Potomac River in order to warn ships about the shoals and to prevent shipwrecks from continuing to happen at the entrance to the river. After five years of delays, it was first lit on September 20, 1830, and ran without too many issues through the years. Things changed for a time when the Civil War began. A hospital was built in the area to care for wounded Union soldiers, and when Camp Hoffman was built, it held as many as 20,000 prisoners at a time, which was double its occupancy limit, and at least 3,000 to 8000 died there due to limited rations and poor conditions.

    Because of the death permeating the ground in the area due to the Civil War and the several shipwrecks that occurred near the lighthouse, the lighthouse is incredibly haunted. People have heard footsteps in the hall and stairway, heard doors slamming shut, and heard voices and even snoring coming from nowhere. Several paranormal investigations have occurred here, where they were able to catch numerous EVPs, felt cold spots, and witnessed full-body apparitions. It has been discovered that there are 24 distinct voices in the lighthouse.
