A Surge of UFO, Bigfoot, & Cryptid Encounters In Pennsylvania-March-July, 2016


A Surge of UFO, Bigfoot, & Cryptid Encounters In Pennsylvania-March-July, 2016


Many strange incidents have been occurring around the mountainous regions in the area.

Many strange incidents have been occurring around the mountainous regions in the area.

This year started off on January 1, 2016, with a Bigfoot sighting reported during the early morning hours. Since then UFO sightings, mystery booms, Bigfoot encounters, and other strange events have been reported from widespread areas of the state, with much of the activity occurring in the southwestern region of the state.

Since March, there has been a surge of unusual incidents being reported from widespread locations, mostly from southwestern locations in Pennsylvania.  There have been detailed UFO observations and close encounters with Bigfoot and other cryptids. I am looking into two Bigfoot reports from July.  Several Bigfoot encounters have reportedly occurred at very close range. See the following two reports.




I am still following up on various incidents and I will provide a synopsis of the occurrences when more information is received.

Bill Cardille, famous Pittsburgh Broadcaster and the iconic host of the “Chiller Theater” show that began in September of 1963, and broadcast on WIIC-TV in Pittsburgh for many years, passed away today.  Bill will be missed by his many fans and the Pittsburgh area public in general.

When Bill started hosting Chiller Theater in 1964  I quickly became a fan. Every Saturday night was  a Chiller Theater party night. I really enjoyed those black and white sci-fi movies that stirred my fascination even more as I began my search into the UFO and Bigfoot phenomena.

Bill Cardille also hosted another program that was broadcast, as I recall, during the late night-early morning hours on WIIC-TV. The show was called, “Mysteries Beyond”. On that interview show, Bill talked with local residents who had encountered UFOs or had other paranormal experiences.

It was my privilege to have known Bill for a number of years. When we would have a brief moment to reminisce, I always reminded him about the great memories that I grew up with concerning his hosting of Chiller Theater. We discussed the role he played in influencing me to conduct first hand investigations into UFOs, Bigfoot, and the Paranormal as a result of his interviews he conducted on that late night TV interview show.

Bill was one of the kindest personalities I had ever come in contact with. He always made time to talk to his fans and followers. He will surely be missed, and the memories he left with me will never fade. My prayers are with Bill and his family.

Another Pennsylvania Bigfoot Close Encounter with a Car-April 17, 2016

Another Pennsylvania Bigfoot Close Encounter with a Car

From Researcher Stan Gordon  www.stangordon.info

Date of incident: April 17, 2016

Location: West Newton, PA

Westmoreland County




Recently I learned of another Bigfoot encounter when I was giving a presentation on UFOs and Cryptid reports.  A woman and her daughter approached me and told me about an experience that the mother had on April 17, 2016. The witness, who was quite upset after the incident, called her daughter soon after it occurred. She gave her daughter a lot of details on the phone and her daughter proceeded to write them down.

Her daughter had brought along her note pad and shared that information with me. I had the chance to talk with the witness in detail and later that day, I went with the witness and another relative to the sighting location just a short distance outside of West Newton. I searched the immediate area, but nothing unusual was observed.

The incident occurred during the evening on a rural road just a short distance from West Newton. The woman was driving about 35 miles per hour and traveling towards West Newton. As she drove along the stretch, on the passenger side of the road to her right, she saw a tall dark figure come out of a clearing and walk up on the road just as she was about to pass that area. She slowed down to look and saw the creature was at the passenger side of the car. What she saw stood approximately 7 feet tall. It was covered with long brownish-red hair. The arms were long and skinny.

What frightened her the most were its large shiny red eyes that seemed to be luminous. The creature was looking into the passenger side window at her. The woman told me she was very frightened and hit the gas and sped down the road to get away from the creature. The witness mentioned that she doesn’t like scary things and had no interest in Bigfoot or watching such TV programs about the creature. She also stated, “I never thought it would happen to me.”


The West Newton area and other nearby Westmoreland County communities have had a long history of Bigfoot encounters. In the late 1960s, local residents reported encountering the “Lowber Monster.”  A white hair covered creature was reported by locals and strange footprints were found. There have been many other reports since that time including this encounter from 2014. http://www.stangordon.info/wp/2014/06/06/bigfoot-sighting-reported-near-west-newton-pa-may-17-2014/

This is the second  report in recent months where a Bigfoot came very close to a vehicle here in Pennsylvania. http://www.stangordon.info/wp/2016/05/12/bigfoot-touches-witness-vehicle-in-fayette-county-pa-a-report-from-researcher-jim-brown/
