The House that Bled

In 1987 Minnie and William Winston had been married forty-four years. For the previous twenty-two years they had rented a six room, red brick home at the corner of Fountain Drive and Morris Street in southwest Atlanta. It was just before midnight on September 8 when Minnie, 77, stepped out of the shower and found the bathroom floor covered with splotches of blood. Mrs. Winston immediately woke her 79-year-old husband, saying, “Come look at all this red stuff coming out of the floor.”

Spots of blood, ranging in size from a dime to a silver dollar, were found on the floor and lower walls in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, basement, and every hall. The substance was also located under a television and in narrow, nearly inaccessible crawl spaces in the basement.

Homicide Detective Steve Cartwright agreed, said that in his ten years of service, “I’ve never seen anything like this.” The couple had no pets, and there were no rodents in the house. Police were not terribly concerned because William, retired from the National Screen Service Company, was often in bed attached to a dialysis machine, which cleanses the blood of people suffering from kidney failure.However, Mr. Winston seemed to reject his blood as the solution to the mystery, saying, “I don’t know what the stuff is.”

By September 11 it was known that the blood type of the house was O, and William and Minnie’s was A.

The Possession (2012)

This movie is a pretty quirky film about rabbis, Judaism, and a cursed Jewish relic. It somehow attaches itself to the soul of a young girl and all kinds of mayhem ensue. While filming, the cast experienced some really crazy occurrences. For one thing, light bulbs kept exploding for no apparent reason. Then, a prop facility mysteriously caught fire and burned to the ground. The subsequent investigation could not identify the cause of the blaze. It didn’t escape attention, however, that the Dybbuk box relic used in the movie was completely destroyed. The cast and crew actually refused to let the producer replace it for fear the object was cursed.

The Legend of El Chupacabra

El chupacabra, or just chupacabra, is a legendary cryptozoology creature that has been haunting various parts of the globe since an initial sighting in March 1995. The term “chupacabra” is derived from Spanish, with chupar meaning “to suck” and cabra meaning “goat.” The creature gained this dark, mystical name from the initial reports from Puerto Rico in 1995. In March and August 1995, attacks on more than 150 farm animals left officials dumbfounded. 

Eyewitness accounts, published in local newspapers, spoke of a creature with a “reptilian body, oval head, bulging red eyes, fanged teeth and long, darting tongue.” The farm animals in Puerto Rico were found to be drained of blood with puncture wounds in the neck. No meat was taken from the animals’ bodies.
The situation in Puerto Rico reached such a fever pitch that Mayor Jose Soto recruited volunteers to hunt the creature weekly for nearly a year, with no success. It’s important at this point to make a distinction. When chupacabras are reported, they usually fall into one of two categories. 

First, and most common to the Puerto Rico incidents, is a chupacabra that is reptile-like in nature with leathery greenish-gray skin and spines running down the spine of the back. The monster can be approximately three to four feet tall and is a bipedal – standing and hopping like a kangaroo. The second, increasingly common version of the chupacabra is more like a strange breed of wild dog or coyote. 

This version lacks the hair of a dog, but features the pronounced spinal ridge or “spikes” similar to the reptilian chupacabra. The four-legged, dog-like chupacabra is also known for some fearsome fangs and claws used for training animal’s blood. The “mark” of the chupacabra on the victims is typically one to three holes, and in the shape of an upside-down triangle when three holes are apparent. 

While the chupacabra or “goat sucker” seems to be a recent cryptozoology finding, the Mayans may have encountered the creature many years ago. The Chupacabra has inspired many works of art in modern culture, including the 2013 film, Chupacabra vs. the Alamo. 

The Chupacabra has inspired many works of art in modern culture, including the 2013 film, Chupacabra vs. the Alamo. In Mayan mythology, Camazotz was known as the death bat or vampire bat. Stories reveal a creature with a bat or lizard-like face, two arms and the ability to turn into a statue during the day. The creature’s sharp snout even lends itself as a device that could suck blood from victims. 

Even more findings identify terms like “goat sucker” found in Mayan literature as early as 1400 B.C. At Chupamacabre, we love the chupacabra because it’s just a bit different than other creatures of lore. It captures our imagination in new ways. The chupa has been “captured” in various sightings since 1995, and later tested by biologists. Tests often identify the creatures as mammals with parasitic manges of various types, but can never account for dead or victimized farm animals and livestock in the area. 

Unlike the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot, Chupacabras are “seemingly” found, seen, captured, and still mystify and dumbfound us all. We hope you love the whimsical nature of this cryptobeast as much as we do. Since those initial sightings in Puerto Rico, chupacabras have gained worldwide appeal and in some case, worldwide sightings. Nearest and dearest to our hearts are sightings in North America, including a rash of sightings recently in Texas and some in Florida. Russia, China, Thailand, the Philippines, and other countries report chupacabra-like sightings or killings of livestock.

EMILY MORGAN HOTEL
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

With its storied history of bloody battles and lore, the Alamo City lives with the dead. Many places around town have been the site of ghost investigations, including the Emily Morgan Hotel – the third most-haunted in the world, according to USA Today.

Formerly, the building was the Medical Arts Building, which had a morgue and a psychiatric ward.. The name originates from the famous story of a servant girl, Emily D. West, who wooed the Mexican General Santa Anna during the Battle of San Jacinto. Combining impressive architecture, a long history of tales from the Medical Arts Building, and the significance behind the name, The Emily Morgan Hotel is a landmark in the state of Texas. It was recognized by the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Alamo Plaza Historic District in 1977.

The boutique Emily Morgan Hotel is located right across from the Alamo, so you can imagine that there may be some spiritual influence. And there is! The ninth floor is said to be haunted by the spirits of wounded Alamo defenders. Guests have reported slamming doors and moving objects.

Other very haunted areas, besides the ninth floor, in the hotel are the seventh, eleventh, or twelfth floors.Here reports of other unexplained noises and the feeling of being touched are pretty frequent. USA Today recommends reserving a room on the 7th floors if guests want to welcome a ghostly visitor to their sleepover.

THE JEFFERSON HOTEL
JEFFERSON, TX

The entire town of Jefferson seems to be rife with paranormal activity, but one of the particular hotspots here is The Jefferson Hotel. It is not only one of the most haunted hotels in Texas, but it is also thought to be one of the most haunted hotels in America.

Ghosts here have a bit of a mean, or maybe just mischievous streak, as they are known to throw things at the guests and even lock them in their rooms! However, that is only the beginning!

Other reports of paranormal activity include knocking on the walls in the middle of the night, footsteps running down the hall, children laughing, disembodied voices and strange shadows
