This is Illuminati322, who has posted on here in the past. The following experience did not occur to me but to my father, during his childhood in Marinette, WI, in the 1960's.
It was in the mid-60's, at night time. He was roughly 7-8 years old, and was awake and alone in the living room of his family's home. He was staring outside the window into the darkness when suddenly a form emerged from around the corner, crossed the street and began walking down his block. It was a short male figure with an obviously crippled leg, dressed in conspicuously outdated clothing (ragged Victorian era duds one would expect from a character in a Charles Dickens story) and unnaturally and abundant, almost animal like thick body hair. My father saw him in profile, and from the side, his face was extended, almost resembling an animal snout. He likened the figure to me to Mr Hyde from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The thing moved forward and eventually out of view, assuaging my father's fears that he would notice him and turn and establish eye contact. He claims the event deeply unnerved him at the time, but has since become a faintly remembered childhood curiosity.
The identity of the entity remains a mystery, as Marinette, then as now, was a relatively small and close knit town, and if a hairy, deformed man lived there at the time he would have been aware of it. In any case, the thing was never seen again, at least not by my father. So, I ask the reader, who or what do you think this thing was and are there any sightings of similar things existing anywhere?
