In the paranormal field there is a tendency to lump Aliens, ghosts, ghouls, and goblins together. With that in mind I have decided to refer to all of these unseen entities as Night Visitors.
The Night Visitors inhabit some other realm of reality and at the sometime are not far away from reality. When the netherworld meets with the world we inhabit, a doorway can open and something can slip through and disturb us.
The Night Visitors are the intermediaries between The Gods and ourselves. They are the most frequent visitors. They are the most talked about and the most dreaded of all creatures.
Mainly because they are superhuman in most respects yet they use that super strength to intrude upon our lives in often horrifying ways. Many times these entities associate themselves with evil, more so than with goodness. Many associate them with death and dread. They have appeared in our literature for centuries. There have been many people who have mentioned that yes the population of “hell” does spill over and some of the slime creeps into our world and leaves a cold chill in the hearts of men.
A classic well documented night visitor story has all of the fear of “Night of the living Dead” and all off the nastiness of “Gremlins.” Yet it has graced the annals of UFO lore only because as I have said before, all of these Night visitors can be lumped together into one big bogeyman.
It happened in Christian County Kentucky in 1955, and while some may argue that aliens invaded a small town called Kelly others argue that it was little demons that came knocking at the door of a farmhouse that sat on Madisonville road near Hopkinsville about eight miles further north.
The papers had said a spaceship had landed and “little green men” attacked the property of Lucky Sutton but police found no signs of a space ship.
The attack took place on the nights of August 21st and 22nd 1955. Billy Ray Taylor was visiting the Suttons that night and while getting some water from the well saw a bright glow in the gully near the Sutton House. He went in to tell the others and they told him that it must have been a falling star. The Dog however began to howl and go crazy as the glow moved from the gully toward the house. According to the witnesses, the glow was coming from what appeared to be a creature with pointy ears roughly 3 feet tall with its arms outstretched above its head. It had enormous eyes that glowed a pale yellow.
Billy Ray Taylor and Elmer Sutton grabbed their rifles and started firing at the odd creature. The Creature flipped backwards and scurried off into the woods. The men rushed back into the house to reload their guns. The family inside was panicking and soon another creature appeared in the window peering in on the pale and frightened children.
Another shotgun blast echoed throughout the woods as bullets shot through the screen and knocked the demon looking entities back into the night.
There were sounds on the roof of the house suddenly and the Suttons realized that there were many more little creatures scuttling about on the house. The men ran to the door with their guns. As they walked out of the house to see what was happening a hand with talons reached down from the roof and Touched Billy Ray Taylor’s hair. Bill Ray blasted his rifle at the creature but rather than falling dead, the creature floated to a fence 40 feet from the house.
Again a barrage of gunfire made it’s mark but according to the men the bullets bounced off the creature. The creature looked at the men with it’s glowing eyes and then fled back towards the gully.
There was a sound in the maple tree that startled the men and as they looked up another goblin flung itself toward the men and once again they shot first without stopping to see what it was that was terrorizing them and their family.
It was then that another night visitor screamed and came from around the corner of the house. The creature was close enough to be shot at point blank range but according to Sutton the bullet hit the head of the creature, but it didn’t affect it, it bounced off and sounded like a rock bouncing off a metal bucket.
Another creature was a few feet away on a barrel. Billy Ray took aim and shot the creature. The creature floated down and rolled into a glowing ball and disappeared.
The men had enough and bolted their doors as the goblins continued to climb all over the house and peer in the windows. The beings would glow as they continued their surreal siege of the house. It was then that one of the Family member suggested that if they put down their weapons perhaps the beings would go back to where they came from.
Things were quieting down, but the children were frightened and the family had to make a run for it.
Finally, the witnesses all escaped into their car and drove from the tiny community of Kelly to the somewhat larger town of Hopkinsville. There, the witnesses told the horrific story of the “goblin” encounter to the police.
The police noticed that the family was troubled and immediately went back to the house where the encounter had taken place. Sheriff Russell Greenwell and State Trooper Ferguson were among those investigating the scene. Later, the Air Force was called in to investigate the possibility of “little green men” and a Flying Saucer.
It needs to be said that while this encounter sounds incredible both the Air force and local authorities concluded that both Billy Ray and Lucky were sane and not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Also the family inside were competent albeit startled by the whole affair and wondered what was terrorizing their home.
The authorities concluded that while there was no evidence of dead creatures, there were some strange anomalies that were present. The authorities filed in their report that strange electromagnetic charges were present in the area. Many of the officers felt sick to their stomachs and an eerie feeling existed at the homestead. There was also area where there appeared to be plasma like glowing -near the Barrel, the roof and other places where the creatures were apparently hit.
Needless to say the Sutton family abandoned their home and moved out of the county.
This story reinforces the notion that demons or night visitors or more than just mythologies that have been embraced by the superstitious. That sometimes we are powerless to the unknown.
There are some that claim that through the powers of God we can combat such foes, the Sutton family can testify that perhaps we live in a demon haunted world.
If demons want to bust down the door and wreak havoc on their human counterparts, they will. All they need is the combination to the lock on the brain that opens the gates of fear and terror. Once they can get you to die of fright, you will cross over into their territory. There they may have the power to torment you through eternity. I guess that is what it means to have your special place in hell.
In some cases they do come back.
Greg Newkirk who is a researcher of all things Fortean was recently sent some very interesting images and a story for his Who Forted site. He recently published an e-mail he received form a man in rural Kentucky.
He was claiming that he had been living in a home located on the border of West Virginia and Kentucky where his family had been allegedly assaulted by creatures that he believed were of extraterrestrial origin. He described them as being to be the size of a small child, sylph like beings with large, oily eyes and lipless mouths. They would be seen peering through the bedroom windows, chirping at one another. These beings would terrorize the children in the home.
According to the e-mail, these entities were actively attempting to break into his home in the middle of the night. He also said that the beings took their guard dog away. He notified the police, but they were not helpful. They told the man that this was a matter of the wild game commission, dismissing it as wild animal attacks.
Furthermore, the man believed that these beings were coming from an abandoned mine that he claims was on the edge of his property. He stated to Newkirk that he had armed himself, but was still too frightened to venture out to try and find these beings.
He stated that he had proof of their existence. He had pictures of footprints and even what looked like inconclusive shots of some strange thing standing in the trees.
It was indicated that the incident was taking place in Pike County in an area bordering West Virginia. He said that he became alarmed when his 5 year old daughter had indicated to him that children without hair were playing in the front yard. She described them as looking like “grandpa” and not wearing clothing.
These entities were also very mischievous because they had stuffed a Christmas wreath in the mailbox.
After installing motion floodlights the visits had stopped. However after a month the daughter said that the bald children had returned. After getting a few pictures of footprints an officer was called to the premises. The officer reiterated that what was bothering the family was a wild animal.
However after the police visits the man claims that he saw the bald figures first hand. He described the sound they made as a chirping sound. He said it reminded him of a skunk the chirping was a bit more guttural.
Some are suggesting that what the man and the children were seeing were wild boar in the area.
The man also sent to Newkirk some strange photos of the mystery entity and it doesn’t seem to look like anything conclusive. They are simply strange and really aren’t all that clear. It doesn’t come close to looking like a wild boar.
Recently Ground Zero has been touching on the possibility that the creatures we consider to be extraterrestrial may be extraterrestrial. This is a case of such underground entities that would look demonic or alien to the casual observer.
When hell is full, the creatures that may dwell beneath the earth will eventually find their way to earth. It is hard to imagine that in the natural scheme of things, there can be tucked away somewhere an overlooked phenomenon. A Phenomenon that by its very nature defies all things that we consider being normal.
