Creature Watches Girl in Cemetery
Location: Robbins Cemetery in Mayfield, KY
“When I was about 14 in Western Kentucky I visited my grandma's grave. Some woods set back behind it and my mom went back to the car and I was fixing the flowers on my grandma's grave. I heard some rustling back in the woods and just thought maybe deer. Then I looked up and saw this tall 7-8ft all brown hairy thing running, but was kinda hunched over and long arms. He didn't look at me and I just froze. I watched him run and push back big branches out of the way like it was nothing and then he was gone. It scared me so bad I just went back to the car and sat there. I didn't even tell my mom. I didn't say anything for years to anyone cause I knew I was going crazy or was going to be called crazy. It scared me so bad I didn't go back to my grandma's grave til I was in my 20's. When I did tell everyone what I saw (in my 20's) everyone just joked about it. I feel like they do believe me know though. My story never changes and I know what I saw.”
How far was it from you? “ I'm not sure in distance. Not too far. Fairly close.”
How far was it in the treeline? “Same as the last question cause I know I was only 3-4 feet from the treeline.”
What did the head look like? “I didn't really focus on the head, but it was hunched over.”
What did the face look like? “Didn't see the face.”
did the arms look like? “Long and he was swinging them.”
How long was the hair? “Shaggy like, about med length.”
Was it initially standing? “Yes”
How do you know it wasn't a bear? “We don't really have bears in Graves County. The only time I've ever heard of a bear being spotted was in 2009 that was the first and last time.”
addition info? “I only saw it from the side and he was
running like a human on two legs. He was slender and kinda hunched over.
I remember being confused as I watched him cause he was so large, but
it also had a slender built. I didn't see his chest. He was fast tho
and seemed strong cause he ran through the brush and trees like it was
Jordan & Clayton
I contacted the principle witness of this report in late June, 2010. Thirteen year-old Jordan F. (full name on file), along with a cousin and two friends, observed this creature in October of 2008 when he was 11 years old. The three were up early that day, just after dawn, exploring some wooded property in Graves County near Symsonia owned by his cousin's parents and shooting their air-soft rifles when his friend, Chaney, first noticed the thing positioned in the brush about 25 yards (75 ft.) from them. He yelled, "Look!" and the other two boys turned to see it. Through their rifle scopes they could see that it was a large, hairy, man-like creature. Jordan told me it was covered with hair that he described as a "moss-green" color. The creature also had "glowing red eyes" even though it was day time. It appeared to be crouched down in an ape-like fashion, he said, with its weight resting mostly on one leg. One of its arms was stretched out in front of it, knuckles to the ground. All three noticed a strange smell "like a mixture of rotten meat and urine." The group, in true Kentucky fashion, fired their plastic bullets at the object and the thing "moved around a little like it was irritated." As they were about to go into a patch of woods they noticed that the object had moved to a different location. Oddly, it was only then that the youths became alarmed and decided to beat a hasty retreat back home. When they examined the area later they could find no tracks, hair or any other trace of the creature. Jordan described the terrain as being a small, thickly wooded valley near a swampy swampy area with nearby creeks and streams.
Interestingly, Jordan and his cousin, Clayton seem to be 'magnets' when it comes to unexplained phenomena. He revealed to me that they had seen unusual things before plenty of times in Graves County, including flying orbs. They had also seen a dark figure up in the trees, which he described as "monkey-like, thin and covered with mangy-looking fur," on several seperate occasions in both McCracken and Livingston Counties. Many would dismiss this case as being representative of the over-active imaginations of three young boys but, after speaking with Jordan at length, I was convinced that he was being perfectly sincere and honest. Not trying to 'pull my leg' at all. Many experiencers of the unexplained begin their encounters at an early age and continue on, in one fashion or another, throughout their lives. As one of these people myself, I cannot automatically dismiss reports of this nature because of the age of the witness, or witnesses, nor the claim that the witness has had more than one brush with the unknown in the Bluegrass State, therefore I am classifying this report as being authentic and factual and worthy of inclusion in this database of Kentucky encounters.
Mayfield, KY 1998
