If you understand the freewheeling nature of life on the road, you also understand that scary truck stop stories get much more horrific than the casual observer might think. A truck stop provides a 24-hour hub where people from all walks of life pass through on their way to somewhere else, and who knows who they are or where they’re going. For all you know, they just escaped from prison, or are fleeing a kidnapper, or something more horrific. For truckers and truck stop employees, these creepy experiences may sound like just another day or night on the job, but listening to truckers describe scary sights at truck stops should give anyone goosebumps.
IN THIS EPISODE: Samuel Joselyn was buried in 1810 in a North Carolina cemetery. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Samuel was actually DEAD at the time of his burial! *** In 1894 Rosa Lochner was a witness to murder, but she had been deaf since birth and her spoken vocabulary was limited. So how could she testify against the accused? *** A boy wakes to find his previously closed curtains now open – and the only explanation involves a previous resident of the house he’s now living in. *** Mention the word “Chupacabra” and most people will think of a strange, hairless dog-like animal. They are never described as having the ability to fly… until now. *** These UFOs aren’t shiny metallic discs or cigar-shaped spaceships. They are humanoid – and they fly without the help of a jetpack, wings, cape or even a broom to sit on. And the sightings are still coming in all throughout Mexico. *** The North Carolina Cherokee have a story about how dangerous it can be even near a calm river – where the waters can suddenly foam and a giant beast can appear on the rocks. *** Supernatural women, shadowy men, odd animal sightings, and more… they can all be found at late-night truck stops if you’re not careful.
