The Vampire Beast Of NC
The Vampire Beast Of North Carolina
What is it and where did it come from. No one knows for sure. And why did it kill and drain animals of blood in 1953 and then disappear until 2003 when it made its return and went back to killing animals and draining them of blood in the Bladenboro area of North Carolina.
Bladenboro is located at the southeastern corner of the Piedmont of North Carolina and the small town is surrounded by Pine Woods and Swamps. Bladenboro was also the scene of the greatest Monster story ever in NC, In 1953 something was killing dogs in the area and the really strange thing was that when the dogs bodies were found they were drained of blood. Some residents claimed they saw a really strange beast with the body of a bear and the head of a cat. And they said it screamed just like a woman.
After the story appeared in the Bladenboro Newspaper around Christmas of 1953 hunters came from as far away as Arizona to try to get a shot at the beast. But even though the hunters brought whole packs of blood hounds trained to track anything nothing was ever found. And the people of the area slowly forgot about the Vampire Beast of Bladenboro.
But then in 2003 it was back. Goats and dogs started showing up again dead with very few marks on them. Again the really strange thing was the fact that even though the animals had been killed there was no blood around the dead animals or in the dead animals. And people in the area quickly came to the conclusion that the Vampire Beast of North Carolina had returned. And return it had. Only this time it was killing animals in a 120 mile radius of Bladenboro and this time no one has seen it.
But people are finding tracks that not even experienced wild life biologists can explain. They say it is the strangest most unusual tracks they have ever seen and they can't say what it is. They do say it appears to be killing just to kill even though in almost every case the animal's blood is gone.
And one thing it has done this time it did not do back in 1953 is it has killed dogs chained on chains in people's yards. It has even killed Pitt Bulls while their owners slept in the house a few yards away. People just can't figure out how it walks up to a Pitt Bull and drains it of blood with the dog putting up no fight. How could it be doing this.
It has the people of Bladenboro on edge and people are watching their children closely. Scout Troops have canceled camping trips in the area because they fear what the Vampire Beast might do if it had the chance.
Recently in May and June of 2013 something is once again killing animals in the area and draining them of blood but no one can say what it is.
Local veterinarians say that the animals are killed by puncture wounds in their necks and they are almost always drained of blood. There is no animal in North Carolina that can do this. At least not one that we know of said one vet.
Did the Vampire Beast Of North Carolina Kill These Animals
Something is killing ponies and other animals near Bladenboro N.C. and it is draining the animals of blood. No other damage is done to the animals. What is doing this. It appears to be the North Carolina Vampire Beast.
Bladenboro Vampire Beast Returns
Last Saturday which was the 15th of June, 2013 I received a phone call from a Misty Turner of Bladenboro North Carolina. She was upset because something had killed three horses and a large Bull Mastiff dog that belonged to her. The three horses were killed on Thursday morning sometime before daylight and the dog was killed late on Thursday night.
Misty's son Taylor found the three horses dead when he went to check on them after he heard their large Bull Mastiff dog barking in the area where the horses pasture is located. When he arrived on his four wheeler the lights of his four wheeler revealed three dead horses laying on the ground. The large dog was outside the pasture barking towards a area of dense undergrowth. He went and got his rifle and his mom Misty and she called the local police. After they inspected the horses they found only puncture wounds in the necks of the horses and there was very little blood. They said the horses were really wet with foamy sweat on them like they had been rode hard for miles. When the local sheriff arrived he called out a local veterinarian who examined the horses and said the horses had deep puncture wounds in their necks and that apparently the horses had been drained of blood. Neither the sheriff nor the vet could explain what type of animal had killed the three horses.
After being at the farm for two hours the sheriff and the vet left. The family used a tractor to move the horses to a deep ditch and buried them. And that should have been all of it but it wasn't. At just after 11 PM on Thursday night June 15th 2013 Misty heard a moaning sound coming from outside the backdoor of the house. When she turned on the lights her large Bull Mastiff dog was laying there and she said the dog died as she rubbed its head and tried to look at it. She called the sheriff again but she said he was not a lot of help. He told her that he had been asleep and that dead animals were not really his job. She said he came out but wasn't a lot of help.
She said when she turned on the light she saw a large creature that looked like the animal in the top photo above run from her dog. She called me hoping I could tell her what the animal is. I could not but I am continuing to work on trying to find out.

The Vampire Beast Of North Carolina , What Is It And Where Did It Come From.
What ever the Vampire Beast is it can approach large Pitt Bull Dogs and kill and drain them of blood with out making a sound.
There must be more than one of the Vampire Beasts because it has made kills 100 miles apart on the same night.
It apparently killed a Pony just outside of Lincolnton NC so it is killing in a much bigger area than it did back in 1953. It started back killing in 2003 and it has not stoped yet. Why did it not kill from 1953 to 2003. Biologists have studied animals it has killed recently and they have no answers. It kills the animals apparently by smothering them and then it drains their blood. One strange thing is that other predators that usually eat dead animals won't touch one of the Vampire Beasts kills. Tracking Dogs brought to animals killed by the Vampire Beast have refused to approach the dead animals or attempt to track it. What are they so afraid of.
Police are often called by people in the Bladenboro area when people hear a woman screaming over and over but no woman is ever found. It is the Vampire Beast they are hearing doing the screaming is the only answer.

Skinwalkers Of North Carolina A True Story
Skinwalkers Of North Carolina , A True Story
In western North Carolina there are all kinds of strange and unusual stories and legends of beings living there that most people will tell you don't exist. Mainly what we are going to be taking a look at here is skin walkers. In case you don't know a skin-walker is a human that is able to change from a human to a creature. And right about know I know your probably saying yea right.
But over the years something or someone has lived in the woods of Golden Valley North Carolina and it has not been that many years ago that there were many reported sightings of a human like creature with long finger nails and canine like teeth. The body of the creature reported was said to have long black hair growing on it and the creature was reported as having attacked many farm animals in the area. Some people claimed to have seen the creature stand up on its hind legs and it was reported that the creature or creatures were at or near seven feet tall or taller. There were many reports of the creature being seen and though some people said they got a good shot at it that either they missed it or the creature wasn't harmed by the bullet.
What was the creature or creatures has never been discovered. One story that has been told over and over is that the state brought in a hunter to try to kill the creature and that the state hunter used dogs to chase the creature several times in the Golden Valley North Carolina area but then one day the state hunter packed up his dogs and left the area. The story that went around was that the state hunter had got spooked and refused to hunt the creature or creatures any longer.
The story told was that the state hunter used his dogs to chase the creature out onto a sandbar on a local river. The story goes on that the creature looked like a cross between a man and a big wolf and that when the creature ran out onto the sandbar while being chased by the state hunters dogs and the hunter that it changed from a giant wolf like creature that ran on its hind legs into a big naked man and then the naked man jumped into the river and swam away. The state hunter who was a part American Indian man from South Carolina told the local authorities what he had seen and also told them he and his dogs were going home to South Carolina. That he was done. The local authorities said the hunter was crazy but other people over the years had seen something similar so just maybe the hunter saw what he claimed.
The Vampire Beast Of North Carolina
A similar beast has been stalking and killing animals all over North Carolina for a number of years. What is the Vampire Beast of North Carolina? Could it possibly be a skin walker. CLICK HERE to read the story of the Vampire Beast Of North Carolina.
What Was Once Stalking The Woods Of Western North Carolina? Is it still there today?
Do Skin Walkers Live In North Carolina
Many people even recently have told of seeing a strange creature in North Carolina that walks up right on two feet and has the body of a man and the head and features of a wolf. Some people have claimed that the beings or creatures being seen are werewolf's or wolf men while other people make the claim that what is being seen is a skin walker. Which is a creature that is human most of the time but on certain nights of the year maybe on the full of the moon the human turns into a seven foot tall man / wolf creature that preys on deer and peoples live stock.
A couple of years ago a deer hunter in the area of Vein Mountain North Carolina says that he had killed and field dressed a doe deer and had just placed the deer onto the back of his truck when two of the skin walker creatures shoved him out of the way and took his deer and ran off into the woods with it. He said that he did not attempt a shot with his bow at the creatures and that he did not intend to hunt in the area again. He said that it was one of the strangest things he had ever seen and he also made the request that his name not be revealed.
Other deer hunters in the area say that while they have not had a deer taken from them that they have seen the strange creatures and for the most part have not returned to the woods after seeing the strange skin walker creatures.
Over the years during the time from 1900 to the 1950's before modern funeral homes and burials people in the area told tales of graves of newly buried people being dug open and quite often the recently deceased persons had been eaten on and some were missing parts. People at the time had called the creatures doing this grave robbers but they had described beings that looked like skin walkers or wolf men. Reports of graves being dug open was reported all over western North Carolina and quite often armed guards and dogs would patrol graveyards at night where recent burials had took place. After people started using the modern funeral homes the tales of the grave robbers or skin walkers gradually died off.
And it was not until in recent years that people began to tell the stories of the strange wolf man like creatures that were once again being seen in western North Carolina. Why did the stories stop for so many years only to start up once again. Where were the skin walkers for all those years that they were not being reported.
What do you think of Skin Walkers? Do they exist? If not what are people seeing in the back woods of western North Carolina? Is it possible that skin walkers really do exist. Its a scary thought isn't it.

A supermoon’s effects are imperceptible, far smaller than those encountered in other everyday situations, such as being near a mountain or even a large building.
The term supermoon denotes a full moon that occurs at roughly the same time the moon is nearest Earth in its monthly orbit. The next one is coming up on the night of June 22-23, 2013. An astrologer, not an astronomer, coined the term supermoon, and it has only recent come into common usage. Although this term is of little to no importance in astronomy, its significance to astrologers may be greater, and some may suppose that a supermoon has some kind of effect on people on Earth. But does it? I decided to calculate the values of different influences on individuals at the extreme of lunar perigee (when the moon is closest to Earth, and presumably has the greatest effect on our planet).
A merge of two images: moon from Wikimedia Commons and Superman emblem came from layoutsparks.com
Astronomers use the term perigee to describe the moon’s closest point to Earth, from Greek words peri meaning “near” and gee meaning “Earth.” In astronomy and other sciences, a related term – perigean tides – refers to the higher tides that can occur when full moon and perigee coincide, as they fairly frequently do. Simply put, an extra-close full moon causes higher-than-usual perigean tides.
What’s more, given the change in distance between the moon’s farthest and closest points, the full moon can appear as much as 14% larger in the sky and 30% brighter to our eyes than at minimum size and brightness.
These changes do not come all of a sudden from month to month, however, and without anything with which to compare them, the changes in the moon’s size or brightness are hard to quantify by simple observation. To notice the difference, you would need to see the apogean (smallest) full moon and the perigean (largest) full moon side by side, which only possible through photography or through some form of direct measurement.
During the time of a supermoon, or any full moon, our satellite is in line with the sun. At that time, the sun and moon’s gravitational effects combine. For reasons we will not discuss here, the sun’s gravitational effect on Earth (as in influencing the tides) is only about half that of the moon. For this discussion, we will simply ignore the sun’s influence.
When the moon is closest to the Earth, its gravitational pull is at its peak.
So the question becomes, how much does the moon’s gravitational influence on Earth vary from minimum (apogee, or farthest point from the planet) to maximum (perigee)?
I will not bore you (or scare you!) with the math, but the variation from minimum lunar pull to maximum pull is roughly 23 percent. That sounds like a lot. However, it amounts to less than 2 ten-thousandths of the mass (or less precisely, the “weight”) of the moon.
More importantly from an astrological perspective (I presume, since I decidedly am not an astrologer) would be the effect on a human being. Consider an 80-kilogram (176-pound) human being. The maximum difference between apogean and perigean moons is about 73 milligrams, or about 1/14th the mass of an ordinary paper clip. If you factor in the solar gravity effect for a supermoon, or full moon closest to Earth, this effect may rise to about 110 milligrams, roughly equivalent to about 1/9th the mass of a paperclip.
In either case, the effects are imperceptible, and far smaller than those encountered in other everyday situations, such as being near a mountain or even a large building.
But, you might counter, I said earlier than an extra-close full moon causes higher-than-usual perigean tides. The tides are a very different situation from human beings. Tides work through what is called a differential gravitational effect. Specifically, the force of gravity exerted on the part of the Earth opposite the moon (the far side of Earth, as seen from the moon) is slightly less than the force of gravity exerted on the part of the Earth directly beneath the moon (the Earth’s near side, as seen from the moon) at any given time. Why? Because there’s an additional distance – about 8,000 miles – from one side of earth to the other. The force of gravity weakens rapidly with increasing distance, producing the differential.
The result of this differential gravitational effect of the moon is that our planet is stretched slightly, along a line between the Earth and moon. The body of the Earth is fairly rigid, so it does not stretch much, but the oceans are much more easily moved. Thus the effect piles up water on either side of Earth, and these piles of water – created by the differential gravitational effect – are the tides. Note that, on average, the tidal effect is quite small. It raises tides only a few feet across an 8,000-mile-wide planet Earth.
Technically, the same effect acts on your body as well, since one side is farther from the moon than the other. However, the difference in distance is on the order of one foot, rather than thousands of miles. Thus the differential is millions of times less, and the effect on a human body infinitesimally small and irrelevant.
Supermoons are important because they focus attention on the moon, and nature in general. But the bottom line is that any physical effects of supermoons are not exactly super. There is no reasonable evidence that they cause super disasters. The effects that people may attribute to them are psychological rather than physical.

Full moon falls on June 23, 2013 at 11:32 UTC (6:32 a.m. CDT in the U.S.). Thus, for many, the moon appears about as full in the June 22 evening sky as it does on the evening of June 23. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014. In other words, it’s not just a supermoon. It’s the closest supermoon of 2013.
We astronomers call this sort of close full moon a perigee full moon. The word perigee describes the moon’s closest point to Earth for a given month. Two years ago, when the closest and largest full moon fell on March 19, 2011, many used the term supermoon, which we’d never heard before. Last year, we heard this term again to describe the year’s closest full moon on May 6, 2012. Now the term supermoon is being used a lot. Last month’s full moon – May 24-25, 2013 – was also a supermoon. But the June full moon is even more super! In other words, the time of full moon falls even closer to the time of perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth. The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee, fall within an hour of each other.
What does supermoon mean exactly? And how special is the June 23, 2013 supermoon?
What is a supermoon?
The word supermoon didn’t come from astronomy. Instead, it came from astrology. Astrologer Richard Nolle of the website astropro.com takes credit for coining the term supermoon. In 1979, he defined it as:
…a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, moon and sun are all in a line, with moon in its nearest approach to Earth.
By this definition, according to Nolle:
There are 4-6 supermoons a year on average.
That doesn’t sound very special, does it? In fact, the June 2013 full moon lines up much more closely with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth – than Nolle’s original definition. According to Guy Ottewell’s Astronomical Calendar 2013, the 2013 June full moon falls only 22 minutes after the moon reaches perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth for this month and year. At perigee, the moon lies only 356,991 kilometers (221,824 miles) away. Two weeks later, on July 7, the moon will swing out to apogee – its farthest point for the month and year – at 406,490 kilometers (252,581 miles) distant.
How super is this supermoon?
June 2013 presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth until August 10, 2014, at which time the moon will be a scant 5 kilometers closer to Earth. The full moon will come even closer to Earth on September 28, 2015 (356,877 kilometers) and closer yet on November 14, 2016 (356,509 kilometers). November 2016 will feature the closest full moon until November 25, 2034! Maybe this helps you see that supermoons – while interesting – are fairly routine astronomical events.
Even the proximity of full moon with perigee isn’t all that rare. The extra-close moon in all of these years – 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 – finds the full moon taking place at or nearly the same hour as lunar perigee. More often than not, the closest perigee of the year comes on the one day of the year that the full moon and perigee most closely coincide. (See table below.)
How often is moon both full and closest to Earth?
Closest full moons recur in cycles of 14 lunar (synodic) months, because 14 lunar months almost exactly equal 15 returns to perigee (moon’s closest point to Earth). A lunar month refers to the time period between successive full moons, a mean period of 29.53059 days. An anomalistic month refers to successive returns to perigee, a period of 27.55455 days. Hence:
14 x 29.53059 days = 413.428 days
15 x 27.55455 days = 413.318 days
This time period is equal to about 1 year, 1 month, and 18 days. The full moon and perigee will realign again on August 10, 2014, because the 14th full moon after the 2013 June 23 full moon will fall on that date.
Looking further into the future, the perigee full moon will come closer than 356,500 kilometers for the first time in the 21st century on November 25, 2034 (356,446 km). The closest full moon of the 21st century will fall on December 6, 2052 (356,425 km).
For the moon to come closer than 356,400 kilometers (221,457 miles) is quite a feat. In fact, this won’t happen at all in the 21st century (2001-2100) or the 22nd century (2101-2200). The last time the full moon perigee swung this close to Earth was on January 14, 1930 (356,397 km), and the next time won’t be till January 1, 2257 (356,371 km).
Will the tides be higher than usual?
Yes, all full moons bring higher-than-usual tides, and perigee full moons bring the highest (and lowest) tides of all. Each month, on the day of the full moon, the moon, Earth and sun are aligned, with Earth in between. This line up creates wide-ranging tides, known as spring tides. High spring tides climb up especially high, and on the same day low tides plunge especially low.
Today’s extra-close full moon accentuates these monthly (full moon) spring tides all the more.
If you live along a coastline, watch for high tides caused by the June 23 perigee full moon – or supermoon – over the next several days. Will the high tides cause flooding? Probably not, unless a strong weather system moves into the coastline where you are. Still, keep an eye on the weather, because storms do have a large potential to accentuate high spring tides.
As a result, if you live near a coast, you’ll want to be on the lookout for higher-than-usual tides.
Because the moon – as always – shines opposite the sun in our sky at full moon, you’ll see the moon beaming all night tonight from dusk until dawn. This extra-close full moon is likely to usher in large tides along the ocean shorelines for the next several days, especially if these high tides are accompanied by strong onshore winds.
Bottom line: The full moon of June 22-23, 2013 is the closest and largest full moon of this year. By a new definition – one that has just entered the world of astronomy from astrology – many will call it a supermoon. There are three full moons in 2013 that meet the definition of a supermoon – May, June and July. But this June 22-23 full moon is the most super of the supermoons! A super-duper moon!

A Rakshasa, is said to be a mythological humanoid being or unrighteous spirit in Hinduism. As mythology made its way into other religions, the rakshasa was later incorporated into Buddhism. Rakshasas are also called man-eaters ("Nri-chakshas," "Kravyads"). A female rakshasa is called a Rakshasi, and a female Rakshasa in human form is a Manushya-Rakshasi. Often Asura and Rakshasa are interchangeably used.

In Zimbabwe, mourners attending a funeral recently were stunned when the “dead” man came back to life. According to a story in the Daily Telegraph, “Family and friends were filing past a coffin with the remains of Brighton Dama Zanthe, 34, when one of them noticed the dead man’s legs twitching.
“I was the first to notice Zanthe’s moving legs as I was in the queue to view his body,” said one of the mourners, Lot Gaka, who employs the man at his transport company. “This shocked me. We called an ambulance immediately. It’s a miracle and people are still in disbelief.”
It’s fortunate that Zanthe recovered in time, though not quite a miracle. Stories of people assumed dead but waking up just before burial are weird, but are more common than most people think — especially in Third World countries where modern medical treatment is rare, and confirming death may sometimes be little more than guesswork.
Consciousness does not suddenly stop when the heart stops beating, and people who appear dead in some cases may not be. Cases of people who were presumed dead but woke up shortly before burial — or, in some horrific cases, shortly after burial — have been around for millennia, and may have contributed to belief in vampires and zombies.
Fears of premature burial obsessed many in the Victorian era and in fact some caskets were equipped with tubes and equipment leading to the surface so that bells and flags could be raised to alert groundskeepers in case the “dead” awoke.
Testing for Death
In centuries past, doctors used a variety of curious methods to determine death, ranging from holding a mirror under a person’s nose to detect moisture in their respiration to pricking the eyes with needles. Usually those sorts of crude measures are enough, but every now and then the vital signs will be too shallow to detect.
The same remains true today, and sometimes medical monitoring machines make errors. Doctors are only human and sometimes they make mistakes. Medical personnel typically don’t spend any more time than necessary with patients they believe to be dead. Instead they, quite reasonably, turn their attention and resources to the injured or diseased patients who they know are living. No one has the responsibility of staying with the dead for hours or days to make sure that they stay dead.
It wasn’t always the case. In his book “Buried Alive: The Terrifying History of Our Most Primal Fear,” researcher Jan Bondeson notes that in the late 1700s French doctors were so concerned about premature burial that they proposed that all major cities in France should have special “waiting mortuaries,” in which the recently deceased would be laid out in rows on floors or tables and carefully watched by monitors who would wander among the corpses looking for signs of anyone coming back to life. It was only at the point in which the bodies would begin bloating and putrefying that the corpse would finally be considered dead enough and sent for burial.
Sharon Hill, a blogger at Doubtful News.com, points out another reason why these cases are rarer in Western countries: “People are not embalmed as in other countries prior to burial.” Indeed, the same chemical process that preserves the dead and makes them suitable for public viewing also assures that the people really are dead.

Japan is to suicide what America is to apple pie. Nowhere is the theme more prevalent, as the locals will check out for any reason: from bad relationships to poor grades. Ghost stories are no different, as the majority of urban legends involving spirits usually stem from the unhappy Casper jumping headlong into the path of an oncoming train or stringing himself up from the closest available chandelier.
The Teke-Teke is said to have been a woman who either jumped or fell in the path of an oncoming subway train and was severed in half. Seeing as being cut in half can sort of ruin your day, her anguish and anger gave rise to the Teke-Teke. Now, she roams throughout Japan in the form of a torso, dragging herself along with her claw-like hands. The sound she makes while moving is described as a "teke-teke-teke" sound as she propels herself using her elbows to frightening speeds (why is there no F1 circuit for this sort of thing?)
Assuming you haven't already left a trail of dust and piss in your wake, the Teke-Teke will launch herself toward you like the world's angriest sideshow attraction, produce a scythe, and cut your slow ass in half. Teke-Teke produce more Teke-Teke this way, as you are doomed to become one yourself if caught.
Told mostly as a cautionary tale to keep children from staying out past dusk, we suggest you listen to your overbearing mothers and not stay out too late.

“I have this friend of a friend who used to babysit as a teenager. Her clients were pretty wealthy and live in this absolutely huge house out near the country, on the outskirts of the town they live in. I think she’s a doctor and he’s a partner at some law firm, so we are talking huge income. It’s really nice out there, peaceful, but a bit out of the way.
The house is a bit ridiculous; an unbelievable number of rooms. You can easily get lost in the place. They’re a bit anal, especially about the house. They have a large number of inherited family heirlooms lying around the place, and the father is quite the ‘no nonsense’ father, if you know what I mean?
Anyway, this one night they go out for some posh-do dinner party and leave this girl to look after the kids. As I said, he’s pretty anal and doesn’t want her wandering around the house where she might damage some antiquated piece of armour or whatever, so he says she has to stay in this one reception room. It has a kitchen attached to it and has this huge screen TV, so it’s fully decked out to keep her entertained.
So they leave and, being a strict household, they soon obediently go to bed. She takes up residence in this specially designated room and starts watching TV, making herself a snack and what not. Before long she starts to feel uncomfortable. There, in the corner of the room, is this ugly, bulky clown statue. It looks like some grotesque antique piece from the 20’s or around that period and it’s all grimy, covered in what looks like oil.
She can’t help getting the feeling it’s watching her. It’s been said that we have this inbuilt ability to sense being watched, but it is not uncommon for it to play tricks on you. She tried to ignore it, but she can’t shake the sense that those eyes are burning into her. In the end she relents and takes her phone to the toilet in the hall outside. In her head she was telling herself that she’s insane, thinking the statue can hear her, what a ridiculous thought, but she leaves anyway.
‘Hey. It’s Sarah. Look, I’m really sorry to call you up like this but that clown statue you have in the reception room, it’s really making me uncomfortable. Would it be ok to move to another room or just stick a blanket over the thing of something?’
After a long pause he replies.
‘Okay Sarah, I need you to get the children from the room, get them into your car and take them to the nearest house. When you are there, call the police.’
I think it’s safe to say after hearing ‘call the police’ you aren’t about to ask questions. She grabbed the kids and ran.
It turns out the kids had complained of a clown had been watching them sleep in their room. The father put it down to silly stories and had basically disregarded what they had said until the babysitter had seen the thing too. Apparently a Psychiatric Unit had closed down recently in the area and not everyone had stable places to go. The story goes that the police seemed to try and hide their concern, though not very well after hearing the mention of a clown costume before heading over to the house. After a thorough search of the building, they failed to find the clown. It turns out that the patient had been treated for vivid and dangerous fantasies prior to release, but had not been able to complete his course before the closure of the unit.
They didn’t catch him.”
The fear of clowns, or Coulrophobia, is a relatively widespread fear, and relates back to the famous Stephen King novel, It, in which seven children are terrorized by an entity that mainly appears in the form of ‘Pennywise the Dancing Clown.’ The twisted smiles and make up of clowns have come so much more to represent twisted and insane evil over the innocent child’s entertainer in recent years, most famously in Batman’s arch-nemesis, the psychopathic Joker. It is perhaps the mask and facade of innocence that the make-up represents that makes the clown so scary.
There is also the link with pedophilia or sexual assault. This Urban Legend is terrifying for babysitters, playing on the fear of intruders, both as the invader that they are supposed to protect the children from, as well as being a potential threat to the babysitter herself. There are variations of the tale that both pose most threat to the children, or to the sitter. Either way, this is an Urban Legend that has haunted babysitters for years and deserves a place as one of the scariest of the Urban Legends.

Human can lick, Too...
Email example as circulated in May 2001:
Subj: DON’T DELETE THIS!!! (it scared the crap outta me)
“Once there was a beautiful young girl who lived in a small town just south of Farmersburg. Her parents had to go to town for a while, so they left their daughter home alone, but protected by her dog, which was a very large collie. The parents told the girl to lock all the windows and doors after they had left. And at about 8:00pm the parents went to town. So doing what she was told the girl shut and locked every window and every door. But there was one window in the basement that would not close completely.”
“Trying as best as she could she finally got the window shut, but it would not lock. So she left the window, and went back upstairs. But just to make sure that no one could get in, she put the dead-bolt lock on the basement door.”
“Then she sat down had some dinner and decided to go to sleep for the night. Settling down to sleep at about 12:00 she snuggled up with the dog and fell asleep.”
“But at one point, she suddenly woke up. She turned and looked at the clock…it was 2:30. She snuggled down again wondering what had woken her…..when she heard a noise. It was a dripping sound. She thought that she had left the water running, and now it was dripping into the drain of her sink. So thinking it was no big deal she decided to go back to sleep.”
“But she felt nervous so she reached her hand over the edge of her bed, and let the dog lick her hand for reassurance that he would protect her. Again at about 3:45 she woke up hearing dripping. She was slightly angry now but went back to sleep anyway. Again she reached down and let the dog lick her hand. Then she fell back to sleep.”
“At 6:52 the girl decided that she had had enough…she got up just in time to see her parents were pulling up to the house. “Good,” she thought. “Now somebody can fix the sink…’cause I know I didn’t leave it running.” She walked to the bathroom and there was the collie dog, skinned and hung up on the curtain rod. The noise she heard was its blood dripping into a puddle on the floor. The girl screamed and ran to her bedroom to get a weapon, in case someone was still in the house…..and there on the floor, next to her bed she saw a small note, written in blood, saying: HUMANS CAN LICK TOO MY BEAUTIFUL.”
“Now it is time for you to lock all the windows and doors. This letter is the only chain letter that is true. This did happen many years ago, and the man who killed the dog was never caught. If you delete this letter you will suffer the same fate as the girl in the story did, years after the dog was killed. She was raped and killed in the same town and same house as the dog. Do not dismiss this letter, because if you do, a horrible thing will become of you, everyone will soon know your name. But only because it will be the headline of your local newspaper for a long time. It will read… Small Town Murder On The Loose! You cannot chance your luck on a chain letter so serious as this. Give up your chance to send this letter to 23 people and you will be giving up your chance to live. You were warned. I hope that I will not see any murder stories in the papers anytime soon. And now I bid you a good day. And one more thing… you only have 23 minutes… sorry.”
This is a perfect example of the evolution of the Urban Legend that has developed the added requirement of action on the behalf of the reader. It has proved a popular phenomenon amongst users of the social networking sites, and has been a popular chain email, mainly amongst the younger users who believe that not sending on a piece of electronic is going to end in your death.
The interesting thing about this phenomenon is its similarity to the Nightmare on Elm Street films. That if something is not performed then the killer will come back in some supernatural form to get a new victim. It plays into all the factors that surround the killer of the film, those of paedophilia and preying on child victims, a common theme amongst the scariest of these metropolitan myths. Most of these chains warm that the attack will come at night, while you sleep. Sound familiar?
With media and technology changing so quickly it will be interesting to see the next step that the Urban Legend will take and what additions will be added to make them all that more truly terrifying.

Bloody Mary by Chris VaisvilasMore Bloody Mary InformationWho among us can forget the story of Bloody Mary. She is said to live in Mirrors and when someone especially a young girl goes into a dark room with a lighted candle in her hand and stands in front of the mirror looking into it and says Bloody Mary three times the ghost of the old woman will come out of the mirror and appear or at least appear in the mirror. It is said that a bathroom is where the ghost has appeared most often and some claim you have to say Bloody Mary thirteen times. Some people also say it must be a black candle and that it must be held in the left hand.
What Do You Know About The Bloody Mary Legend?What do you know about the Bloody Mary Legend. Have you ever tried it. Have you ever known anyone who tried it and saw something. If so let us all know about it in the comment section below.
Where Did Bloody Mary Come From?You'll hear many different stories and legends of where Bloody Mary came from and how she came to be.
Be careful what play with or you just might see Bloody Mary. Was There A Real Bloody MaryAt the old now closed down Tri Community Elementary School near Caroleen North Carolina people have always claimed that Bloody Mary can be seen in the bath room mirrors of the school. She was always described as standing looking out of the mirror with a bloody dress on and several rusty chains were draped around her neck and shoulders.
Women Were Hung In North Carolina For The Practice Of Witch CraftUp the hill behind the school is a very old grave yard with a lot of tombstones but most have been there so long you can't see the names on the stones any longer. It is said that here in this grave yard is where a witch was hung and buried in the 1780's. Yes its a historical fact that several women were hung in this area for practicing witch craft. At one of the trials the old transcripts said that a woman was hung for making her neighbors cows go dry and for running a 20 year old woman crazy and for causing her to throw herself into the near by river and drown. The witches name was Mary Holescloth and she was hung on Christmas Day 1781 near the present day Tri Community School by a rope around her neck until she was dead by the then high sheriff. She was tried three days before she was hung and eleven of her neighbors testified against the old woman. They told wild stories that the old woman had told of having relations with the devil himself. And she was said to have a large place on her right hip that looked like something with a large mouth of jagged teeth had bitten her.
Some people said that it was only a birth mark. But at the time of the trial and the hanging of the accused witch people in the area believed very much in witchcraft and they also believed that the devil was a very real being.
At the time that Mary Holescloth was buried it was believed that if you buried a witch wrapped in chains that the witches ghost could not come back and bother anyone. Its strange that down through the years that when the old woman's ghost was seen in the mirrors of the school that she was wrapped in chains. It was also said that witches were always wrapped in chains and buried facing down.
People Often Try To Practice Witchcraft At The Grave Of The Old WitchOver the years people have left offerings of candy, flowers, and dolls at the grave stone of the old witch. Her grave stone is a large red tombstone with no writing on it. People through out the years have drawn three crosses in a row on the tombstone for luck. There are also rumors that people often practice witch craft at the old witches tombstone. They light candles and leave offerings of dead chickens and you can often see where candles have been burned and melted down. Small mirrors are also often found leaning against the old red tombstone by people trying to summon the real Bloody Mary. Some have the belief that if they are able to summons the ghost of the old witch that she will be able to give them the desires of their heart.
Is Bloody Mary Real?Just because you go into the bathroom with a candle and chant Bloody Mary three times while standing in front of the mirror with a candle burning doesn't mean you will ever see her. You have to do it with the belief in your mind that you're going to see the old witch. If you believe you may have a chance to see her. But if not you may not see anything.
People who don't truly believe will often see nothing. But if the person who is trying to get the old witch to appear truly believes then the old witch may indeed appear.
Do You Know The Best Time To See Bloody Mary?The best times to see the old witch is on Fridays, any Friday the 13th, and on Halloween. It won't hardly ever happen unless it is dark outside. You have a better chance when there is a thunderstorm or at 3 A.M. which is the true witching hour not midnight as you may have been led to believe. So if you do try to see Bloody Mary why not try to see her at what is supposed to be the best time to see her. If I was trying to see her I would use a black candle in my left hand and I would try it at 3 A.M. on a Friday morning. If it's raining outside or a thunderstorm is going on outside you may have better luck.
A Circle Of SaltIt is best if you can to stand inside a circle of sea salt when you try to get Bloody Mary or any spirit to come to you. The sea salt will protect you as long as you stay inside the circle.
