The Crosby Creature
Mystery Casebook CROSBY --The creature was standing on left side of the road near the "bad dip in the road." The red outline shows where the creature was standing. There was less foliage than in the photo. The harder I tried to make it out. I didn't see a mouth, nose, or ears. The head was definitely larger at the top than the bottom. Other than that the eyes, the face, becomes very blurry. I was with my 6 year old son, who was sleeping.

It was Saturday, December 16, 2006. I left my cousin's Christmas party at 10 PM, the cousin lives a few miles down the road and it takes roughly 18 minutes to get to the stables from her house. I drove to the stables which are on a narrow winding dirt road with an almost full moon and felt as if I was being watched. My 6 year old son was asleep in the car, so I fed and watered the horse in ten minutes or less. After the rains, the road was very muddy, and in bad condition, so I had to drive slowly as I came out of the S curve and spotted two red dots about 5 1/2 feet above the ground. My first thought was of a deer. I came almost to a complete stop and standing at the edge of the trees about seven feet away from my window was a creature facing me..

It was about six feet tall, completely black except for the eyes and very skinny. It had one thumb and two finger-like appendages. Its head was wide at the top and very narrow at the bottom (or chin). The face was very hard to make out like it was blurring my vision. Just as I passed it, I came to a complete stop and put my car in reverse intending to back up and get another look. However, I decided against it, and turned off the dirt road onto the main road.

There are three things that happened that I can't explain:

First, I left the stables, about 10:30 PM. The trip takes less than ten minutes but when I got inside the time was 12:30 AM. (I lost nearly two hours time.)

Second, I had been suffering from insomnia for years prior to the sighting and awoke every night about by 3 AM, and stayed awake for the rest of the day. Since the sighting, I am in bed and asleep by 9:30 PM. My alarm wakes me at 5:30 AM and I hit the snooze button for an hour. I fall asleep at work even while I'm doing things.

Third, I have always been able to walk up to my horse and love on him, and give him treats, but for four months after the incident he wouldn't have anything to do with me or allow me to give him treats, or even touch him. Later, when he let me touch him he would tense up and his whole body would tremble. He has started to trust me again, but it has taken a lot of work.

Investigator's Notes: The witness said that she had submitted her report in April of 2007, but I am unable to locate it in my files. The witness seems quite sure that this entity was not an animal or person. She was able to get close enough to it to determine that it had "non-human" appendages.
