The Native Spirit

Posted by T.O.P.R.S. on May 7, 2017 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Approximately late June of 2016 2:30 AM, I and another individual were walking back to my house after a BBQ. We had started to walk up Schuyler Street in Oswego NY near Fort Ontario. We both stopped and turned around as it was late and noticed an unusually dark reflection of headlights which cast a large dark shadow upon 8th street. We were standing on the corner of 7th Street and Schuyler.

As the reflection moved away we both observed what could only be described as a shadow person step from the darkness and start crawling across the roadway and scrambling with a crablike crawl up the hillside where the community gardens are. It started to rise up, changed from inky black to a grey color and morph into what looked like a 7 foot tall werewolf with a short staff in one hand and then suddenly disperced into a mist and disappeared.

We both looked at each other and I asked did you see that? Yes. My friend saw it also. Trying to rationalize what we had seen I thought of the 3 clans of Bear, Turtle and Wolf. Having looked into the native warriors of this area the wolf headress, along with the club fit the image we had seen. Another friend at the Community Gardens found that the gardens are approximately in the same place as the original Fort Gardens of long ago.

To the best of my knowledge this is the first reported sighting of this ghost in Oswego NY.

Lately I have been taking cases here and there, having got through the recession along with everyone else. A private residence in Fair Haven NY with a ghost, and an Oswego residence with 2 ghosts reported. Should make for an interesting time with further investigation. T.D.

Winter - 2013

Posted by T.O.P.R.S. on February 9, 2013 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Well here it is Winter, a snowy Saturday and I felt like doing a little updating of the TORPS website amongst other things.

Lately I've been looking at paranormal shows on You Tube. My favorite collection added by a user named GHOSTWATCHING, whom I recently thanked for having such quality video's uploaded, its a great little collection of over 400 of the UK's best shows. 

In the natural world - recently online there has been some video footage of a giant squid in its natural habitat. Its interesting, Giant Squid, Collosal Squid... makes you wonder what else might be down under the ocean depths.... 

In the paranormal world, there have been ongoing reports of odd activity which is not of local origin but is being reported apparently world wide. The phenomena is known as Dark Eyed Children. Speculation is either an urban legend and goes as far as alien hybryds, inter-dementional, demonic entities, possessed teen-agers, and possible vampires. There are many interesting accounts, theories and it is left to the reader to ponder. They seek to gain entry into a persons car, or house. They are said to appear in cold weather, are pale skinned, completely dark eyes (no iris/white) and ask to gain entry. They can be solitary, in pairs or groups and have been reported to try to ask for help. They are subtle at first then become forceful or even agressive, pleading: please give me food, a ride, money, use your phone ect. They are said to be hypnotic, but induce fear and terror in their presense. Some have been reported to have shark like teeth and are said to not breath or exhale - exhibiting a corpse like appearance remenicent of vampires....

A 'UFO' said to be seen in Oswego NY Harbor recently ..mostley debunked as a flare. Oddly enuf, it was causing a mild stir in the community. Flares especially used for military training are often mistaken for UFO or paranormal phenomena, especially near military bases...also recently:  .... interesting reading....

Feel free to post in our forum or report anything that you might have come across out there - till next time! T.D.
