The Flatwoods monster is claimed to be an unidentified species of either a terrestrial cryptid or an extraterrestrial being. It was reported being seen in the town of Flatwoods, West Virginia, on September 12, 1952 on some land owned by a local farmer, G. Bailey Fisher. The witnesses include two brothers, Edward and Fred May, their mother Kathleen, a friend of the boys, Tommy Hyer, along with Neil Nunley, Ronnie Shaver, and national guardsman Eugene Lemon.
It was described as being ten feet tall with a red glowing face and a green, man-shaped body. The eyes were described as bulging and heart shaped. Various descriptions have arose with some stating the creature having no arms, while others claim it to have short stubby arms with long claw-like fingers.
Another unusual sight that accompanied the monster was a large, pulsating red ball of light and a pungent mist that burnt their eyes and nose. Two other small lights were seen to the left under an oak tree. Lemon shined his flashlight toward them. The creature was revealed, made a loud hiss and came toward them, then in panic the group fled.
The local authorities were informed and later that evening, Sheriff Robert Carr and co-owner of the local newspaper, A. Lee Stewart, conducted interviews and returned to the site with Lemon. An extensive search was conducted but no evidence was found.
The next day, Stewart returned to the site and discovered tracks, but was later revealed as tire marks from Max Lockard’s Chevy truck, who was at the site only hours before.
After the encounter, many accounts similar to the phenomenon were revealed. A mother and her daughter claimed to witness the creature along with the same odor a week before the September 12th incident. The daughter became violently ill afterwards and was admitted to the Clarksburg Hospital for three weeks.
