46 – Crawfordsville Monster – Crawfordsville, IN



Jesus, take the w…wifi password? Catch the next Greyhound bus and join Brett and Harley on a trip to find one of the strangest cryptids we have ever covered! On this week’s episode, we travel to Crawfordsville, IN to investigate the mystery of the Crawfordsville Monster. Back in September of 1891, the residents of this award winning community saw something that defied description. Did this town slip into a Lovecraftian horror story? Did they encounter the original Lost smoke monster or maybe an aerial serpent? When the local preacher is one of the eyewitnesses, does that give the story more credibility? This claim was investigated by Charles Fort and it is sometimes referred to as the American Dragon Maybe it was an atmospheric monster or maybe it was a flock of killdeer, but either way it is definitely an oddity of epic proportions.

Our news story comes from Headlines & Global News and involves a new book by an Oscar-winning author about aliens, UFOs and cattle mutilations.
