There's Bigfoot, the giant ape-like animal that roams the wild forests on the West Coast. Across the pond, there's Nessie, the Loch Mess Monster that hides in the deep, dark waters of the Scottish Highlands. In Mexico and Texas, they have the Chupacabra, the blood-sucking goat that some say has killed animals. And in South Carolina we have the Lizard Man, the creature supposedly terrorizing Bishopville since 1988.
That year, a 17-year-old reported a run-in with a scaly lizard that stood on two legs. Now, there's speculation that the creature may be back.
On Ida Lane in rural Lee County, they're struggling to explain what took place Monday morning.
"I ran into the house and told my wife to call the police because something happened to the car," explained Leon Marshall.
"The tooth marks went completely through the fender," added his wife Ada.
Early that morning the Marshall's woke up to find their car mauled by something.
"That's metal! And it just bent it up. Like it was a piece of tissue paper," said Ada.
The question is by what?
"We have no idea. No idea. No idea what-so-ever."
To former Lee County Sheriff Liston Truesdale, this sounds all too familiar.
"This part here is how it all started in 1988," explained Truesdale. "We got a call to come and look at something that had mauled a car. I went out there and looked at that damaged car, and I haven't seen anything like that before."
About that same time there were bizarre calls coming in.
"They had been seeing a large creature about 7 feet tall, with big red eyes, with three pointed fingers."
So he started asking residents, "have you seen anything like a big tall creature round there? And the guys said, 'what you mean that lizard man?' That's how it started and you got it from the horse's mouth."
Back then, there was a media frenzy.
"Everyone thought they were going to get a glimpse of the Lizard Man but he didn't appear."
The damage on the Marshall's car is almost identical to the damage on the two cars from back then.
Was it the Lizard man?
"I'm skeptical about that. I'm not gonna go that far. I'll believe it when I see it," said the Marshalls.
"Everything it laid off on the poor lizard man," jokes Truesdale. "But at this point, he must have grandchildren!"
Whether you believe in the Lizard Man or not, he certainly did generate a lot of buzz. In 1988 it's estimated that about 50,000 visitors came to Lee County in hopes of spotting the creature.
Comment: Consider the following from Superluminal Communications:
June 9, 1995:
Q: (L) I read in a book about a monster called the "Beast of de Beauvan which appeared first in 1764 and was supposedly done away with in 1767. Who or what was thisFebruary 3, 1996:
A: Other dimensional "window faller."
Q: (L) You mean it fell into our dimension from another through a dimensional window?
Q: (L) Well, that would explain a lot of things about it. What about the creature known as "Spring Heel Jack" who terrorized England some time ago?
Q: (L) What about the Mothman in West Virginia?
Q: (L) So, windows to other dimensions are the explanation for a whole host of strange things?
Q: (L) Okay, can we ask now about El Chupacabras?
A: It is what it is.
Q: (L) It is a 'goatsucker.' Where does it come from?
A: Review transcripts re: "window fallers."
Q: (L) If it is a window faller, does it come from another density, or a lateral dimension?
A: Closer to the latter.
Q: (L) Okay, so it is like a horizontal dimension. What allowed it to enter our realm?
A: This is complex, but best described as "EM wave bursts along frequency border variation."
Q: (L) Is there some way to capture or stop this creature?
A: You do not yet completely understand all the "mechanics" of the window faller phenomenon. The physicality is entirely transitory and partially dependent upon consciousness variabilities, as well as expectations of witnesses.
Q: (L) Does the energy of the fear of the witness enable the creature to continue its existence? Does it feed on the excitement and fear, and is that what makes it manifest?
A: Close, but off a little. It is the other way around, and retro-factored by one half.
Q: (L) What do you mean by that?
A: It is mutual, rather than unilateral. Also, remember that a window falling represents a cross-energizing of realities, equally represented from each "dimension" in question.
In other words, because the dimensional curtain has been "torn," half of one and half of the other contributes to the whole reality.
Q: (L) Does this mean that something from our reality is also scaring something in that other reality?
A: No, it does not "work" that way at all.
Q: (L) Is there any possibility that this mutual creature is going to turn its attention from animals to humans?
A: Ditto last answer. And review response prior to that!
