“I used to be a very good person at one time” – Dorothea Puente
There is a reason why Greed is one of the seven deadly sins. For it can lead a person to commit other heinous acts: lie, cheat, steal, and even murder. The thing about greed is that it consumes anyone and there is no such thing as enough. Even sweet looking grandmothers that share yummy homemade meals can be taken over by greed.
The Beast of Bray Road
Location: Bray Road Elkhorn, Walworth County, Wisconsin
In rural Wisconsin there is a stretch of road called Bray Road and it is the setting for a series of terrifying encounters, beginning in 1936 and continuing on until the present. What have dozens of people over several decades encountered? Well…no less than that of a flesh and blood Dogman. It all began, just before midnight on the grounds of St. Coletta School for Exceptional Children; a religious facility that cared for mentally disabled children. Scattered across these grounds are burial mounds of Native Americans that have been left untouched, at least by human hands.
“Ata” the Mysterious Miniature Alien
In 2003, the mummified remains of a small skeletal body was uncovered in the Atacama Desert of Chile. This skeleton body was fully intact but only ten ribs, an elongated head, and only six inches in length. This discovery sparked a great excitement among paranormal researchers, due to the fact that “Ata” had a very alien and otherworldly appearance.
The Don Vicente Inn
The historical district of Tampa, Florida known as Ybor City was established in the late 1890’s by Cuban National Vicente Martinez Ybor, as the location for his business endeavor of manufacturing high quality, hand rolled Cuban Cigars. Ybor’s cigar business model was so successful that Ybor City became widely known as Cigar City. With the expanding workforce came a need for more housing development for the workers. To remedy the housing need, Ybor commissioned architect Francis J. Kennard to design the building of The Ybor City Land and Improvement Company in 1895; at an estimated cost of $35,000.00. With humble intentions in mind, Vicente Ybor could have never guessed the gruesome events that would manifest inside the walls of The Ybor City Land and Improvement Company, making it one of the most haunted buildings in the state of Florida.
