Things That Go Bump In The Night

Every area has its stories about things that go bump in the night and Halloween is a perfect time to share them. Here's a few from Bristow.

Big Foot Sighting
In 1977, Big Foot sightings were reported in Vici, OK. Shortly thereafter, search parties were formed after similar sightings of an unidentified creature were reported in eastern Oklahoma near Bristow and Stilwell. Nothing was found. (Click here for more details on this and other Big Foot sightings.)

UFO Sighting
On 5/15/74 at 13:00, an object appeared for 5 Minutes. It was described as large, drab color, enormous, cigar shaped, no appendages on craft. Moving at moderately fast speed, (faster than any blimp could}. (Click here for more details on this and other Oklahoma UFO sightings)

Spontaneous Combustion?
When an elderly woman that resided on Pecan street became too feeble to live on her own, her son moved her into a trailer house near his home in Sapulpa. A former neighbor reports that shortly thereafter, the woman was found in a chair severely burned with no damage to either the chair or the trailer house. The neighbor further reported that unfortunately, the poor woman lingered a few days in the hospital before passing on. What could possibly have caused such an injury? Was this a case of spontaneous combustion?

Ghost, Gust or Goof?
A local Bristowan took photographs of some roadside ruins and had quite a start when pictures were in hand. A curious mist appeared in several shots. Was it a gust of her frosty breath on a cold morning captured by the camera, flaw of the lens, or something else? You be the judge whether it is "ghost", "gust" or "goof".
