NEAREST ROAD: 5th st
OBSERVED: I was 14 years old. had to walk a friend home she spent the night, she had to be home to babysit so her parents could go to work it was 5am and I looked out my bedroom window to see how much it snowed and what I saw still no one believes me. I saw a very large black thing it was bent down looking at something in the snow only 6ft from my window. Street lights were on and also the snow made things lighter. I froze and started crying and begged my friend to look and she was afraid because I was saying some kind of monster was out their, anyway it looked up at me and slowly stood up and took one step toward me and I ran in my brothers room and jumped on his bed begging him to help. He was afraid too so we hid in his closet until my friend's mother was knocking at the door she was mad she didn't come home. No one believed me. It was very tall, body was huge and the eyes just stared at me.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 5:00 AM
Follow-up investigation report:
I have spoken with the witness. She describes the creature as "just huge". She stated that the body and legs look about like pictures on the website but the face was different. There was more hair on the face. Black hair covered pretty much all of the face except around the eyes. She recalls not seeing any white in the eyes. She describes the eyes as having a reddish tint, not glowing red, just a reddish tint. She had one major issue that she emphasized about the face. She vividly recalled that the face was "UNFRIENDLY". Definitely not a gorilla face. More human like, but "UNFRIENDLY ".
