6 Paranormal Stories That Remain Unexplained Today
1. The Enfield Horror
Greg Garrett was playing in his backyard in Enfield, Illinois in 1973 when he claims to have been attacked. His attacker was not a person, and the description matched no animal anyone had ever heard of. Anyone who has described the creature, which came to be known as the “Enfield Horror” gave the same description; three legs, five feet tall, gleaming red eyes and taloned arms that seem curl in the front of a torso similar to that of a t-rex.
2. Clarissa Glen
18-year-old Clarissa Glenn claimed to experience odd, ghostly presences in her apartment in Cornwall, England. She had been told that the person who lived in her room before her had hanged himself. Glenn had a history of sleepwalking, and ever since moving into this flat, had dreamt of hanging herself. One night, presumably in her sleep, she hanged herself from the rafters by her scarf.
3. Terry Cottle and Sonny Graham
A man named Terry Cottle killed himself in 1995 by shooting himself in the head. His heart was donated to 57-year-old Sonny Graham. When Graham met Cottle’s widow, the two fell instantly in love with each other. The two eventually married, but after a few years of marriage, the relationship started to follow similar patterns to Cottle’s. Graham eventually shot himself.
4. “The Children”
Brian Bethel was parked outside a movie theatre when two young kids approached him. Bethel says he had never been so afraid in his life as he was at this time. The kids asked him for a ride home, and when Bethel started the car before giving them an answer, he claims their eyes turned black and they said they couldn’t get into the car unless they were invited. He drove away and later wrote about his experience on his blog, leading to people from all over the world to shave similar encounters.
5. Teresita Basa
Teresita Basa was stabbed to death and had her body set on fire in 1976. There was very little that linked the murder to any person, and police were left wondering. About a year later another woman who worked with Basa, Remy Chua, claimed to have seen Basa’s spirit appear in a lounge at the hospital where they worked. One night, Chua spoke to her family in Basa’s voice naming Allen Showery as the murderer. Police found Basa’s belongings in Showery’s home, and he confessed to the crime.
6. Doris Bither
Doris Bither was a drunk who was known for abusing her children, having come from an abusive home herself. She claimed much of this happened because of the “entities” that haunted her. She eventually got a few paranormal investigators to observe her, and after some time, she began to curse at people no one else saw. Allegedly, auras began forming near her and a green mist started to form around her. One of the investigators fainted on the scene.
