Submitted by witness on Saturday, February 28, 2015.
Passenger has possible daylight sighting near New Preston

YEAR: 2015

SEASON: Winter

DATE: 2/16/15

STATE: Connecticut

COUNTY: Litchfield County

LOCATION DETAILS: location: Hillside above Lake Waramog looking
from east to west angle New Preston/Washington
line in CT.

NEAREST TOWN: New Preston, CT.


OBSERVED: Place: New Preston, CT., hillside Lake Waramog,
Date: 2/16/15
Saw: Looking over lake from riding in a car on RT.45
the hillside saw a black tall figure just walking
along so easily, the figure crossed a driveway from
the forest to the other side and continued slouching
along swinging arms heading towards powerlines
approximately 800 yrds away. It did not have a hat
or any other clothing and snowshoes. The head just
sat on the shoulder. I thought it was a man but
then realizing no man could walk on such a steep
slope without poles, etc. It lasted a few minutes
do to the car moving. The black figure stood
out against the white snow and sunlight of day.

ALSO NOTICED: Powerlines run over the hill 800 yrds. from
this siting. the figure appeared to have long
sweeping stride and long hair. the arms swung as
it walked easily on the steep hillside.

OTHER STORIES: I now scan the bare winter hillside every
time we ride around the lake from Rt. 45.
We ride there frequently all year because it's
pretty scenery.
Just thought you like to have this information
should you do research in this area since I saw
the episode done in Litchfield, CT., and NW RI.


Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Eric Vogel:

The witness and I talked thru e-mails and our phone conversations. She was driving through the beautiful hillside of Litchfield. She looked across one of the fields and saw a big black object walking up the hill (steep slope) it was walking slowly up the hill in the snow. It then crossed a driveway in about 3 steps and was back in the woods, it was slouching along swinging its arms, headed towards the power lines approx. 800 yards away. It didn't have a hat or any other clothes Karen it looked like the creatures head just sat on its shoulders. She thought possibly it may be a person, but with the slope of the hill it couldn't be a person. the slope was to steep and much snow . This tall black figure just walked across the slope with out a care in the world.

It was easy to see with the snow and sunlight as a back ground . She watched this unfold for a few minutes.
