COUNTY: Walker County
NEAREST TOWN: Kansas
NEAREST ROAD: hwy118
OBSERVED: On friday march 12 at around 6pm I was going home from the store and when I started to turn off the highway I noticed something white quating down on the side of the highway near the creek about 30-40 yards ahead of me so at that time instead of turning I went on toward it to see what and if I was really seeing what I thought I was seeing and as I got within about 10 yards of it, it stood straight up and turned around slowly and walked into the woods real calm and at that time I couldn't believe what I had just saw. The thing was very large, dirty white, taller than the street sign that was near, and fury and I could tell it was not human or anything I had ever seen before, it scared me so bad I had tears in my eyes and started shaking and at that time I went straight home and told my husband about it.
OTHER WITNESSES: none
OTHER STORIES: Yes my sisterin law seen something white stand up from behind the dog pin that was whiteish looking back in the 90s, and my husbands cousin seen something black quat down behind a tree about 2-3 miles through the woods from where I seen my sighting and there are old tells that my husband has told me about something that people said use to live in the old mines that is now a hunting club that was whiteish looking and looked about 7-8 feet tall and they called it bozo, and he has heard several other people talk about seeing something within this area.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: it was around 6:00pm central and it was a clear evening right before dark.
ENVIRONMENT: A couple of creeks, several old ponds, hunting club nearby with several thousands acres with clear cuts and heavily areas of woods.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Smykal:
Upon interviewing both the witness and her husband, these additional details came forth...
There was frenzied night-time barking by neighborhood dogs for 3 consecutive nights prior to the sighting. The barking continued the following night and then stopped.
Unusual vocals described as a very deep, powerful, echoing scream or holler were heard.
The area used to be heavily mined years ago and still has some exposed mine entrances. It contains thousands of acres of heavy forests and swamps consisting of pine and hardwoods with ample food sources of vegetation and wildlife, including many deer.
There are also several nearby creeks and ponds.
This area also has a rich history of sightings, including the sightings of the same or other dirty-white individuals along with dark colored creatures. As mentioned in the report, her husband's sister also had an encounter with a white creature when she was 10 years old. See Report #27480.
The witness was so startled by the initial encounter that she jerked her leg while in the driver's seat and broke one of her flip-flops. Her husband reported that when she got home she was terrified and shaking, with tears in her eyes.
She described its hair as being fairly unifom in length, except on the head, where it was much longer. Although she got within 10 yards of the creature, she did not get a good look at its face because at this time she was looking at it through the rear-side window which is darkly tinted.
