The Chicago Mothman
The Mothman is back in the news in a significant way for the first time since the infamous rash sightings in Point Pleasant, West Virginia in 1966 & '67 that resulted in the Silver Bridge disaster that claimed 46 lives (pictured right). Researcher Allison Journlin of Milwaukee Ghosts has taken it upon herself to visit dozens of the sites associated with the recent sightings around Chicago. You can find videos from Allison on location, here. To date, there have been almost 50 sightings around Chicago this year alone. Is it a case of mass hysteria, a wide-spread, publicity-seeking hoax or something mysterious and legit? Only time will tell and we can only hope that the end of these sightings won't be marked by a tragedy such as the one witnessed on the Ohio River just before the Christmas of 1967
