This week, we have a story that was sent to us by a member of the Appalachian Paranormal Facebook group. It’s of a possible Mothman sighting that he had back in October 2022.
It started in July 2022 when we went up to the West Virginia state prison for a reptile show. We were maybe 2 hours away from Point Pleasant and thought it would only add an hour onto the drive back home so we figured we would drop by. On the drive I started to get a headache. I thought it was maybe because I was tired but the closer we got the worse it got. As soon as we got through the floodgates of the town I had a feeling in my stomach like going down the first drop on a roller coaster.
Eventually I felt better but fast forward a few months I was walking to work early one morning one morning right before Halloween. It was still dark around 6:00 AM when I saw red circles in a tree and felt a feeling of dread. I thought maybe it was some Halloween decorations, but I checked the next day on my way to work and there were no red lights there.They haven’t been there since. Then about a month after my dad passed so maybe it was or wasn’t just a coincidence, but a warning.
Thank you to the fan who sent in this story. We’re really sorry to hear about your father. You have our condolences. That’s a pretty crazy chain of events that happened. As you all know I’ve been to Point Pleasant many times, I’ve never felt anything going there. It actually feels normal to me to be there. Maybe the person you’re sensitive to these types of things? Then there were the red eyes coming from up in a tree. That’s a bit spooky, I guess it could have been an owl or a racoon? But that doesn’t explain the feeling of dread. Then a month later there was the passing of their father. Maybe it was an omen as some say?
