Ohio MUFON investigator Ron McCone reports that a witness driving near Carmel, Ohio on December 12 "came up over a hill and saw a 7′ tall slim, gray creature with muscular legs that walked like its knees were backwards." Nevertheless, it moved rapidly and effectively. What it was is a complete unknown, but the witness, a 60 year old ex-Marine not given to confabulation, seems entirely credible.
This sighting report of a bizarre creature, in this case 7 feet tall, armless and the color of asphalt, joins the tens of thousands of such reports dating back–at the least–hundreds of years. While the backwards knees have been reported before, the apparent armlessness marks this as an extreme high strangeness sighting.
