might want to keep in contact with the neighbors above you.

just to clarify a few things, on the second occurance when you woke up and went out on the balcony and saw it between the 2 cars.

did it notice you come out? do you think it moved from the lamp post to the cars due to being noticed? when you yelled out "Hey!" did it appear to look in your direction at all as to identify the source of the sound?

i ask this because the next night your neighbors above you were the victoms, it might have mistook the 3rd floor tennants as the source of the "hey!", in which case if it thought they were you then that could be a hostile "retaliation" (for lack of better word)

another thing is from your story it seems like the 40 year old guy who was outside watching it too, wasnt calling any attention to himself....yet the creature was aware of his presense. and from the way you describe it, was more concerned with HIS presense than whoever had yelled at it (you).

im not sure where im going with this, but i dont like the fact that the order of events leads to your neighbors(who could have easily been you) getting increased activity.

the vibe i get is this thing may have ill intent. because if it did not want to be messed with it wouldnt be entering your rooms, specially after a verbal confrontation. i wouldnt wait for another encounter to prepare, and i wouldnt assume the next one isnt going to be outside. im not saying to be frightened in your own home...but anything 8feet tall isnt something to mess with and take chances...specially if it isnt human.

let me get this straight, you created this crazy and elaborate tale to throw your girlfriend off your track when she caught you looking at porn when she came back from class a little early?

several witnesses/neighbors heard the animal screams, so he would have had to set that up somehow, and then the 40 year old dude would be in on it too. and hed have had to pay an 8 foot tall guy to play the shadowy figure role. the neighbor incident would have had to been staged as well. pretty elaborate if its a hoax.

its possible i suppose.

but improbable.

All I can think of is Mothman. Or Fringe...
(Just read an interestingish post here on ATS about Louisianna making preparations for mass riots etc...(I think its posted as Louisiana preparing for end of world scenario) )
I would be totally FREAKED OUT by something like this. My boyfriend told me of a time when he was waiting for a ride and he saw a light come on in an apartment that he knew was empty, the light turned out to be a candle and he saw a girl holding it, then he saw another girl and another girl and another walking around the room in circles, he said they all looked like the same person. He got totally freaked out and ran to the end of the street to wait for his ride.
What your story also reminds me of is a Steven King story called "hearts in atlantis." Its a story about an old dude and "men in low coats"
So have you talked to this old bloke, why is he on campus? Where did he come from? Who is he?
I don't really believe in manevolent spirits, I think more along the lines of a F-ed up government experiment or aliens...

Wow, yeah, great story man!
Well... not for yous, obviously. But you get what I mean!

Erm, camera. Yeah, really need a camera here.

Alsooo... maybe try getting some spiritual protection if you think this is a ghost or demon or w.e.

Just speculating but when they saw you at the desk, it mighta been a timeslip, which is something I've been researching atm, so that wouldn't be anything to worry about.
U2U me if you want any more info and I'll try and explain that as best as I can, but I'm not 100% on the subject yet.

This is all guessing that this isn't human like, but if it is human, you still need to be careful. Try keeping watch, cameras may scare weird people off if they're up to no good.


And keep us updated yeah, best of luck.

OP, like a few others, I'd suggest a powerful flashlight as the first thing you should do.

Second, this may draw attention to you, but you could ask around, say you are doing some sort of report...it's college, it'll be easy to BS the reason, and get info. Say there have been "a history of paranormal activity" in a really sarcastic manner. It will get the idea in people's heads, and maybe they will start noticing things. A lot will be false info (or should I say faulty) but it will get some feelers out.

But also, I'd suggest a motion game camera as well. Mount it next to the building pointing discreetly, as it is probably illegal, or at least frowned upon.

And if you are feeling especially adventurous, I'd get with the old dude and stake out a few nights. At the very least, it will be a crazy story to tell about your college days.

And check out why that 40 year old is even there. I know my first semester I had two 40 year olds on my floor in a dorm. They were out of towners who wanted to go back to school and it was cheaper then finding an apartment, so he could just be one of those guys. It was always suspicious though.

good luck! keep us updated.

DO NOT USE A WEAPON!!!

don't listen to boneheads who are telling you to shoot this thing. It very well may be a person, or you may mistake a person for this thing. There is a big difference between protecting yourself and murder.

As for your story, it is freaky and I agree it sounds like the mothman thing. there is a good movie called the mothman prophecy. Richard Gear is in it. It is supposed to be based on the true events, but you can read the real story online.
Here is a start. there is much more information out there.

hey there

this is a very interesting story, and i'm sure if it wouldn't have been out of the ordinary, you wouldn't have made your way here to post this.

it would be nice if you would draw a sketch of this figure you saw on the parking lot. i'm very interested. be sure not to put your camera away within the next days, to catch it on tape, if it shows up again.

maybe the 40 man knows more, by telling you to 'stay inside and keep the blinds closed', for it didn't seem to be a figure of any danger, as far as you know.

it would have been interesting to see the cats. how they looked like. how they were injured, say how they died, in what condition they are, for it would say alot about the situation there.

can you give an exact description of the clothing ? any details you have seen ? sounds to me like a typical man in black experience. if it is, then there is something bigger behind all of it, connected to someone, probably the 40 man in the other building.

stay ready with your camera and report more !

thanks for sharing your story...

peace !

it could be a Ragaru/Rougarou - which seems to be connected to cannibalism (the native american version). more prevelent when cannibalism is being practiced.

or the Honey island swamp monster this guy seems to come with a rather noticable stench, although you did say it was raining so maybe that hid the smell. i dunno. what looked like a coat could have been long wet fur/hair

both are from lousiana.

then theres a number of similar "skunk ape" sightings also with the stench.

the the Fouke Monster same profile as the others. all seem to be about 7 feet tall.

LAke worth monster this ones half man half goat like described in one of the previous posts.

although no specific names theres lots of various "swamp monster(s)" reported in the Louisiana area all having various large ape-like humanoid appearance.


::edit:: after looking over these it doesnt seem any of them are friendly. several reported attacking/killing poeple/cars/animals. i would arm myself.

something, in the parking lot. I don't know what the # it was. It looked like
a tall man wearing a big coat, but there was just something not human about it.


Have you considered saying hello?

It hasn't hurt anyone. Scared them maybe, but it's not breaking down doors and eating people. Just cats. Before you grab a shotgun or smash it over the head with a maglight...why not introduce yourself nicely?

Maybe it will respond in kind.

Or, if you attack in with flashlights and guns...

Maybe it will respond in kind.

I was thinking that it may be a good idea to video tape this creature with a night time lens so your flashes wont bother it. Also did anyone who seen the cats that were killed confirm that they were not killed by something natural?

It's that darn Boo Radley. Check the knothole in the old tree.

Awesome creepy story.

Don't approach. Sounds like he's high on PCP!

Heck, go down early in the morning to the lot where you saw this thing. Take an EMF reader and digital recorder with you. See if you get anything out of the ordinary. Ask questions in the digital recorder and see if you can capture any EVP's.

I'd confront it.

Wow that is quite an interesting (and spooky) story.

I would recommend you get a camera/video recorder... maybe even try continuously filming out the _

I would also talk to the apartment management/security; do they have security cameras? If not, I would tell them to get some!

I wouldn't try interfering with this thing unless you really know what you are getting yourself into.

he did. he stepped outside and yelled "hey". it ignored him for a moment and then ran away. Rude if anything.

Whatever you do, don't burn a ouija board! That's just asking for trouble.

That was an enthralling read, well put across.

I'd like to echo those that have urged non-violence, the chances of an innocent getting hurt are way too high, imagine if you mistake a tall fellow student in the dark. If it gets to a situation with this "thing" shout "fire" - people tend to pay attention to that, as few would want to be dragged into a violent situation.

The first thing I thought reading your post was Mothman, but I'm over the other side of the ocean...

Could you take and post some pictures of the locations for us?

That's a creepy tale!

The really curious part is your double. Or, the
apparition at your computer witnessed by your 2
friends.

The tall shadowy creature wasn't wearing a cowboy hat, huh?
I keep hearing "Candycane" in a deep scary voice...

very creepy keep us updated on anymore occurences. I have unexplained events occur on a usual basis so much that its just become the norm. The most reocurring happens every other weekend when i have my kids (2, 4, and 6) after my fiance and I put them to bed we hear noises like jumping or kids running and playing in the living room. this usually happens an hour to 3 hours after there in bed. Sometimes its before we fall asleep and sometimes its been so loud it wakes us both up from a dead sleep. Every time i go check on them they are fast asleep. This never happens when they are not here. We also have had items disappear and reappear in the exact same spot.

First thing that came to my mind was Mothman. I know others have said the same. It is a great tale, similar to something Deen Koontz would write. I, do not, however doubt its veracity.

I have done some thought on the doppleganger concept myself. I have been plaugued (or maybe blessed) with a unique perspective that has led me to this view, though I won't go into those details on this thread (rather off topic). My thought are that your doppleganger is actually you -- or, rather, an extension of you. When you daydream or even subconciously ponder on something, if the visualization is intense enough, you can manifest yourself into it as a solid, or at least partially solid, entity. The reason your doppleganger may not respond to external stimuli (such as friends waving through the window) is that it may not be aware of those events. If this is all that was, you should be ok. I believe poltergeists to, for the most part, be a similar manifestation.

As for the mysterious creature in the parking lot, the posters here have given some good, solid advice. Get a bright spotlight, get a camera, and spend a few nights on patrol, especially if it is raining, as most animals know that rain will allow them to hide better. Whatever you do, don't be violent to the creature. If it *is* a beast of some sort, it is probably very much on edge and will resort to fight or flight instincts.

My guess as to why the creature was infatuated by the 40 year old guy would be that it was aware it had been spotted before and was wary. If it was hyper-focused on the guy, it may not have hear you shout out "Hey!".

Of course, this is all just speculation. Be careful, use common sense, and understand that there is a lot more to the world than what we see on a daily basis.
