I have seen a few Melonheads in Ohio.
First of all, it's Kirtland not Kirkland. These two towns are VERY far apart and both well outside of Cleveland.
Second, the stories really circle around Thomson, Ohio which is out in the boonies.
I have heard all sorts of melonhead stories for many years and saw one here in my well populated, modern town a couple years ago. He was driving a
car, looked a LOT like Tobey McGuire and had the notorious huge jug head, Otherwise for all intense purposes he looked "normal". Many years before
this I had seen an older melonhead and again, driving a car and the two shared faces that lead me to believe they are related. I've seen the younger
one 2 or 3 times.
Many years ago in my teens, a girl I knew told me and a couple friends about the melonhead that lived near her friend. He road this antique squeaky
bike, was very small and thin and lived on the dead end dirt road you'll find mention of in countless stories. One night they got drunk and he came
around so her friend was messing with him. She came running and screaming in terror as he chased her then turned the tables and began chasing him
around this ratty old shed. We sort of thought the story was B.S. because of who it came from but then....
Probably that same year a close friend was going to his cousins birthday party. It was out in the middle of nowhere and he was desperate to get some
weed or booze to sneak in to get him through the family affair. He comes back and describes the EXACT same little melonheaded man. The dead end dirt
road talked about in so many stories, the shed etc. He wasn't someone to sling B.S. Anyway it must be that the gene runs in this family and everyone
knows where they live. There was no horror movie story. Just some very little guy with a massive cranium.
There are a lot of creepy melonhead stories and it's pretty much the same. They took off into the woods generations ago, have encouraged the
spreading of the gene through incest and creep around scaring people from time to time. The abandon mental institution and Dr Kroh are also very real
as are the stories of him experimenting on these kids and other people. There were jars with baby fetuses found and stolen many years ago, some of
which surfaced in my town when I was a kid according to numerous people I knew insisting they had seen them at various houses stashed as trophies.
Some of these claims came from people I was inclined to believe. A lot of people used to sneak into the abandon mental hospital and it was straight
out of the movies. They just picked up and left. The file cabinets still filled with patient files, desks, bed pans, beds, restraints etc. Due to so
may kids sneaking in at night, the local P.D. set up a sub-station there to chase people off. It was well known that if you got anywhere near it,
somehow the cops would ALWAYS just walk up on you and stop you.
There's a lot of weirdness here. I've seen some pretty weird looking Amish over the years. They experience some pretty bizarre deformations due to
incest. I've seen a few "children" that after taking a good look, realized that I was looking at a 40 year old man who looks the size of an 8 year
old child. It literally looks like a 40 year old man shrunk by a shrink ray from the movies! Another guy I've seen looks EXACTLY like Bilbo Boggins
and is literally about 4 and a half feet high! These are new order Amish living in a heavily populated area so hang out there for a week or two and
you are bound to see these guys and others. I know how this reads, ESPECIALLY on this site but I'm not trying to goof on you. Generally your Amish
just look very Dutch European but I've always suspected a connection to the Melonheads. There are areas I've seen Amish that show incredibly strong
signs of incest and genetic disease but these are the very distant and unpopulated sects where they rarely ever see cars and walk barefoot down gravel
roads. Typically your Amish are very friendly but in these old order Amish areas they just don't like "the English" coming around where as New
Order Amish eat fast food, shop at Walmart etc.
Anyway the melonheads are real.
If there's any truth to them, the Hell's Hollow stories, the old girlscout camp etc well just remember this. Crystal Lak AKA Friday the 13th is
based on Ohio. There's an old camp and lake that's been shut down for probably 40 years in my town I've long suspected to be the location sitting
right on the shore of Lake Eerie.
