Motorist has a nighttime sighting just outside of Chardon
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Geauga County
LOCATION DETAILS: About 7 miles east of SR 306 on Wilson Mills Rd.
NEAREST TOWN: Chardon
NEAREST ROAD: Wilson Mills Road
OBSERVED: I was on my way home from work at about 10:30 PM. I was heading east on Wilson Mills Rd. just approaching Chardon. I was especially alert due to the large number of deer in the area. To the right of me I saw a flash of glowing eyes in my headlights. I slowed down and looked into my rear view mirror and saw what appeared to be the silhouette of a very large man. It had stepped into the road behind me and I could clearly see it because the moon was full and very bright. There were no other cars on the road so I began to stop to get a better look. This thing looked to be nearly as tall as a stop sign with very thick limbs. It was walking upright but slightly bent. It proceeded to cross the street and disappeared into the trees. I drove home awestruck with the image burned into my mind. I decided to only tell my boyfriend what I saw and as I was sketching it out he went online and found this web site. I'm not telling anyone else!
OTHER STORIES: No. I'm new to the area.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was about 10:30 PM and the full moon seemed extra bright due to the snow. It was also cold out.
ENVIRONMENT: Semi-rural wooded area with homes.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Marc DeWerth:
The creature appeared to have a slouch when it walked and arm swing was apparent. The area where it crossed had wooded ravines on both sides of the road. The color of the eye shine was an orange red. With the car stopped, the brake lights helped illuminate the creature's features and movements. The area in question is very close to an area of known Sasquatch activity. Geauga County is well known for its abundance of wetlands, rivers, and forest.
Investigated by Ohio BFRO investigator Marc D.
