Witness Observation

My son and I was driving down FM1008 (Kenefick) heading towards our road hwy 321. It was about 11PM. I was driving around a curve and it was just there. His face was as tall as the speeding sign that he was standing next to as if he was crossing the road. If I was 20 seconds later I would have hit a man that had hair covering his whole body except I could see his mouth and nose with no hair; the eyes were pretty clear of any facial hair also. He "looked" upset. Clearly not sure what it was that my son and I saw but it was a man like being that was as tall as the street sign. My headlights reflected off the sign as this thing turned his face to see us and we see him. It was practically in my windshield. I would have hit him if I had not swerved.

Time and Conditions

11:00 pm - It was 11pm and a clear night. The Trinity River is in the area of 1008. They have pine and swampy areas.

Investigator's Comments

Daryl Colyer

This investigation was conducted as a result of an incident that allegedly occurred in Liberty County, Texas, in April 2003.

I spoke to both witnesses involved in this incident on 15 June 2004. I found both witnesses to be of the highest credibility.

As the two were heading back to their home, they rounded a turn in the highway. The mother told me that she was turning a little wide for the curve and nearly ran off the road. As this happened, both witnesses saw the subject by the sign. Mother was struck with fear and "freaked out," as her son described it. Son was amazed and tried to convince his mother to instantly turn around. Mother would not have it. Even though the sighting lasted only seconds, the mother had seen enough. She steadfastly continued down the road, away from the mysterious figure.

Both witnesses described the subject as being at least as tall as the sign by which it stood (perhaps eight feet tall). The color was described as auburn and the subject was covered with hair on all but its face. The witnesses described its face as appearing "upset and angry," or that the creature had a "mean look on its face."

The witnesses further described the subject as "muscular," "big-boned," and "too hairy for a man, but too human for an animal." The "knees appeared bent" and the subject seemed to have "a basically round head." The witnesses, who estimated their speed at fifty miles per hour, could not discern any details about hands or feet. The figure did appear to be "somewhat squatted."

Both witnesses are not sure what they saw, but they are sure that they had never seen it before and have since not seen anything like it. The mother said that it "scared the livin' hell" out of her, and that it was "awfully ugly." She went on to say that she used to date a large man who was six feet four inches, but "he was a midget compared to that thing."
