Cops flee Bulawayo, Zimbabwe police station after 'goblin' emerges from suitcase dumped there by family

A family from Nketa 7 suburb dumped its tenant's "goblin" at the Tshabalala Police Station, sending cops fleeing in different directions.

The incident occurred at about 8 pm on Wednesday.

A family that claimed a lodger owned the goblin brought it to the station in a suitcase.

"We heard some screaming from the charge office and most officers who had knocked off rushed to see what was happening. At first everyone gathered around the suitcase, wanting to see what was inside," said a cop.

The officer said a traditional healer who had come with the family opened the suitcase and a weird looking creature jumped out of a bottle that was filled with blood.

The legendary monster chupacabra was blamed for the recent inexplicable death of 60 sheep
It's official: At least one corner of Russia is free of "fairytale creatures."

The legendary monster chupacabra was blamed for the recent inexplicable death of 60 sheep in a remote corner of the Moscow Region.

The livestock's killer left no footprints in the snow, which prompted farmers and media in the town of Beloomut, 150 kilometers southeast of the city of Moscow, to look for supernatural explanations.

But the region's Agriculture Ministry formally denied that a chupacabra could have been involved.

Rangers who investigated the incident believe that the culprit was a dog, either a stray or a pet that someone intentionally set on the sheep, the ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

All traces of the attacker were covered by the fresh snowfall, the statement said.

What in the world is this weird object on the moon?

Strange Object

What you are about to see is extremely puzzling. A very curious "mystery object" has been discovered on the Moon by a YouTube user that was using Google Earth. I didn't even know that Google had mapped the moon, but apparently they have. What this individual found was a series of 7 "lights" that are arranged at a nearly perfect 90 degree angle. Some have suggested that this weird object could be a spaceship or flying craft of some kind. If it is, it is far larger than anything ever built on Earth.

Others have suggested that this could be the entrance to a base that is manned by either aliens or humans. And of course there are yet others that believe that the 7 "lights" are just the result of errors caused by the digital zoom. In the end, this is a mystery that will probably not be solved any time soon. Unless we send someone up to the moon to take a closer look, there is no way to tell for sure what is going on up there.

The original YouTube video that started this frenzy about the "object on the moon" has been posted below. Watch it and decide for yourself what you think it is...

Inside the mind of a paranormal intelligence agent

Got a Big Foot or space alien in your backyard? Government agents in black helicopters? Sheepsquatch? Just call Jack Cary, founder and director of the Paranormal Intelligence Agency

Jack Cary

Jack Cary
Jack Cary is in the business of mystery solving, but he's no regular detective. As the founding director of the Paranormal Investigative Agency (PIA), the 40-year-old has dedicated his life to cracking some of the world's most bizarre cases.

The "agency," which consists of Cary and 15 investigators across the United States, is privately funded and not affiliated with any other organizations, government or otherwise. To some extent, it works like a real intelligence agency, gathering intel and monitoring event patterns to form educated hypotheses. But the PIA focuses most of its investigative powers on life's big mysteries, like Sasquatch (he's real), UFO sightings (happen all the time), animal mutilations (possible government agency doing this), werewolves (their existence is still under investigation), and sudden, world-changing incidents known as "black swan" events (9/11, catastrophic solar flares).

Two large chunks of ice fall from a cloudless sky, narrowly missing cyclists and hikers in Annadel State Park, California

Some astonished visitors to Annadel State Park say they're grateful they weren't hit and killed when two large chunks of ice fell from a cloudless sky.

"They were coming down like bullets," said mountain biker Ron Schuelke, an economics instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College. "I've never heard of anything like this in my life."

As the white chunks plummeted and struck with distinct thuds Tuesday near the east Santa Rosa park's Lake Ilsanjo, both Schuelke and a second cyclist, Ryan O'Harren, were resting on the dam. O'Harren said the objects slammed into the ground close enough to him, Schuelke and four women hikers at a nearby picnic table to count as scary.

After the second impact, he suggested to Schuelke, whom he didn't know, that he put his helmet back on. Schuelke did.

Haunted house attraction may actually be haunted

A home has been a part of their family since 1944 but it wasn't until recently that something strange started happening at the Benton family farm house in Walton.

Now paranormal investigators are flocking to the home trying to explain the unexplained.

The family that owns the home has been using the house as a haunted house attraction every October.

"Dad really thought that we should tear it down or it needed to make money somehow and that's when we thought of a haunted house," Mary Marcum said.

But this house could really be haunted and not by spookily dressed characters.

The family believes gutting the walls may have sparked these unexplained happenings.


Saudi Arabia: Human body parts 'fall from the sky'

Human body parts have fallen from the sky in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.
The gruesome incident may have been due to someone becoming trapped in a plane's landing gear, police have said.

Horrified residents called officers after the body parts landed in the road in the Mushrefa neighbourhood of the city at 2.30am on Sunday.

Early indications suggest the body parts belong to a man stowed away in a passenger jet's wheel bay, police spokesman Nawaf bin Naser al-Bouq said.

The report came after a Saudi Arabian Airlines jet made an emergency landing in the city of Medina in the west of the kingdom, injuring 29 people on Sunday.

That aircraft had been travelling from Iran's second city of Mashhad with 315 people on board.

However, a spokesman for the General Authority of Civil Aviation said there was no connection between the emergency grounding and the Jeddah incident.

Exorcists wanted after 'spike in devil-worshipping practices'

The Catholic Church says it's dealing with a spike in Satanic worship by training a growing team of specialized priests to keep the devil at bay.
A new push to train priests in Italy and Spain to perform the mysterious rite of exorcism could rid these two Catholic countries of their demons - or at least confront a growth in occult worship.

Every weekday morning (except Thursdays), 76-year-old Father Vincenzo Taraborelli receives parishioners with a particular spiritual dilemma after the 8:30am mass in the Church of Traspontina, a stone's throw away from St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. In an incense-thick, candlelit corner of the church, he blesses the troubled with a prayer and holy water to ward off evil spirits. On Wednesday mornings before mass, he recites the rosary in a special prayer of liberation from the chains of the devil. The followers in the pews are glued to his every word, seemingly dependent on his blessing to keep the devil at bay.

Father Taraborelli is a trained exorcist for the Rome diocese, and his work schedule is very busy. He takes calls to set up appointments for private exorcisms on a dedicated cellphone number he only answers between 9 and 10pm each night. The rest of the time, he is performing the Catholic ritual to those in need.

"The church is very clear on the rite of exorcism," he told The Daily Beast after one of his spiritual cleansing sessions this week. First, the person requesting the exorcism must be seen by a physician to make sure the cause of the perceived possession is not mental illness. That, he says, is at the crux of why Pope Francis wants to train more exorcists. "Exorcists need to be certified to eliminate the practice of exorcism by untrained novices," Taraborelli says. "Otherwise it can be very dangerous for the person who believes he is under the devil's possession."

Lion Rock's eye 'glows red' in Hong Kong

The eye of Lion Rock glows red in Hong Kong on the afternoon of Dec. 22, 2013.
The enormous eye of Lion Rock in Hong Kong mysteriously turned red a few days before the new year, eyewitnesses reported.

A symbol of Hong Kong's spirit, the famous Lion Rock is a lion-shaped hill that overlooks Hong Kong's Kowloon area. At 2pm on Dec. 22, the lion's eye turned red twice, lasting 30 minutes before fading out.

Some citizens were alarmed by this phenomenon, taking it as a sign that Hong Kong is in trouble. They appealed to the Hong Kong people to take measures to safeguard Hong Kong.

Hong Kong citizen Ms. Xiao Hong said that she was waiting for a bus in Wong Tai Sin District when she noticed that Lion Rock looked very different from normal. She was startled to see that it showed a red eye.

The sky was very clear, she said, and so was the view. As she stared at it, the lion's eye became redder and redder, and its head looked alive, as if it was moving.
