Just in time for Halloween, Officer.com asked law enforcement offices from all over about their personal paranormal experiences. Everything from UFO sightings to ghostly encounters were shared, but what I found most intriguing was a story about an alien abduction!
Jaime Dube used to be a patrol officer in Maine but he's no stranger to strange encounters. One of the most amazing experiences he ever had was a missing persons case.
Francine was an alcoholic in town who had multiple encounters with the police. So when she went missing one day, the whole force was keeping an eye out for her. Office Dube noticed a person curled int a ball laying on a bridge. When he approached the figure, he realized it was none other than Francine and boy did she have a story about where she was.
According to her, a "spaceman" took her. She elaborated to say: "They did all kinds of things. They made me eat this green stuff. It was kind of like pudding. It was green and tasted horrible. They made me eat that. They prodded and poked at my stomach. My stomach is killing me right now. I want you to take me to the hospital."
What Francine was most disturbed by, though, was the fact that she was sent back to Earth. She claimed that her alcoholism excluded her from staying on board the ship, which included many other human beings just like her - who had gone missing.
But that's not all. Francine had proof of her extraterrestrial encounter - a mysterious, ultra-smooth rock with strange reflective properties.

The evidence for the existence of Bigfoot is similar to the evidence for the existence of aliens. There is a lot of it and it is quite compelling. However the evidence comes up frustratingly short - the only photos and videos are vague and blurry, and to this day, no one has turned up a body.
But that doesn't mean Bigfoot. Or aliens, for that matter, don't exist.
If one carefully considers the heaping amounts of witness testimony (from modern times and in Native American legend), along with physical evidence like large footprints and audio recordings, it's actually not unreasonable to conclude that some kind of giant, hairy, unknown ape-like creature has been hiding out in the mountains and woods of rural America as well as other parts of the planet for hundreds, if not thousands of years. But why is Bigfoot so good at hiding?
Some of the more logical scientific explanations for Bigfoot include escaped zoo animals or other misidentified animals. It was only last year, after all, that a new species of giant ape (or more specifically, orangutan) was discovered in Indonesia. Who knows what other strange creatures could be out there lurking in the trees?
But a more interesting and not-so-scientific explanation for Bigfoot that some researchers, including Sasquatch expert Nick Redfern (who I interviewed last year), have come to suggest is that the creature could actually be an inter-dimensional entity, similar to a ghost. That would certainly explain why Sasquatch is so good at disappearing and leaving no trace behind. It's also worth noting that sightings of UFOs and Bigfoot occasionally happen at the same time, and this definitely gives the theory that Bigfoot is from out-of-this-world some weight!

In the latest "13 Days of Halloween" article, we explore the real scary and scary real reality of vampirism in the US.
During the month of October, you may see vampires, but only pretend dress-up ones for Halloween, or in Hollywood movies like Twilight and Dracula. But did you know you could be living next door to a real-life vampire right now?
Okay, so not the kind of vampire that murders humans, sleeps in coffins, and lives forever. Phew.
That's not to say the real-life vampires of New Orleans, Buffalo, and other parts of the US aren't a little creepy. Some even wear fangs, and many congregate in secret at night.
But according to researchers, real-life vampires are normal humans like you and me. They just suffer from a mysterious and extreme form of anemia that first develops in puberty and causes them to crave the taste of blood. Practicing vampires don't bite the necks of unsuspecting victims, though, but instead enjoy medically-safe blood donations from those who are willing to help. There are also reported to be "psychic" vampires that drain the energy of others (both near and far) through hand movements and other mystical techniques.
I read some articles about this strange, mostly-nocturnal community online and discovered comments from people interested in vampirism and from those already practicing it. While I can accept that some or most real-life vampires in modern society provide no threat to anyone and are just trying to get by in life, I came across some online comments that were pretty frightening, like this one: "It's not advisable to meet a Vampire you have to be very strong they are unusual, you can sometimes feel drained or energetic it depends upon us. Very soon you will find many of them because day by day human are becoming so low on energy due to senses pleasure."
It's difficult not to note some of the more terrifying (but hopefully corner) cases of vampirism in an article like this. Some of the most brutal serial killers in history were known to drink the blood of their victims, like Peter Kürten and Richard Trenton Chase.
Let's hope the average vampire of today is a sensible, law-abiding US citizen, but until vampires come out in the open and put down their fangs, they will continue to strike fear into the rest of us.
Welcome to "13 Days of Halloween!" For this post, let's take a look at a recent Oregon news story that surfaced online about possible paranormal activity at a local pot shop! Is this proof that ghosts are real?
A marijuana dispensary in Oregon may be haunted, at least that's what spooky security camera footage seems to show. Multiple objects can be seen moving on their own in the videos below, and what's weirder is a worker at the shop also claimed to feel a presence a presence watching them when the videos were captured.
