DATE: November 1957
LOCATION: Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana
TERRAIN:Woods with nearby river
friends and I had been to a movie and dinner and were riding around talking.
As we crossed the Tangipahoa River bridge and was approaching the small
bridge immediately after, we all saw someone walking up out of the ditch
on the passenger side of the car. The height of this person made
me think "GIANT". We drove to the next available spot in order to turn
around and go back and when we returned this person was still standing
on the side of the road. We angled our car to make full use of the headlights
and stopped in the road. This guy had to have been every bit of 7 1/2 feet
tall and was pretty hefty, I'd say around 325 pounds. He appeared to be
wearing a pair of pants and shirt that was very dark (bluish) in color
and very tattered. We didn't notice if he wore any shoes. The most horrifying
feature was the shape of his nose, which resembled a snout, and instead
of having two eyes, there was only one located off-center of his forehead.
After a minute or two this guy turned and walked back down the incline
into the woods and we sped away. When we reached the nearest town we went
to the police and reported our sighting but were only scoffed away. My
three friends and I have often discussed this night and our only conclusion
is that it was a malformed person that had been kept locked up somewhere
that had escaped. All four of us lived no more that 5 miles of this sighting
and have never heard anyone else talk about it.
ACTIVITIES OF WITNESS(ES): Riding and talking after a movie and dinner
