Cryptozoologist Shetan Noir, author and owner/publisher of Squatch GQ Magazine stops by to give us some new updates on the lore and legends of The Great Lakes monsters. She researches strange and unusal reports and sightings in and around the Great Lakes Regions in North America, document many of these in her books.
The Water Monster of Lake Erie
Lake Erie is home to many different monster tales, all of which have been told by multiple people. One of the most famous water monster sightings has happened in Lake Erie in the south bay area. Bessie, who is also called South Bay Bessie because of the location of the sightings, has been seen multiple times since the 1800’s. It is said that she is covered in gray scales, has a large head, and is around 30 to 40 feet long. Once, in 1992, a supposed attack from Bessie left three people dead with one survivor. He had quite the story to tell, I’m sure. He has even mentioned that Bessie’s head was the size of an average car. Could you imagine seeing that up close and personal?
The Kingstie Monster of Lake Ontario
Lake Ontario spans between the United States and Canada, and this particular tale happened in Canada in 2004, though it dates back to the 1930’s. The Kingstie Monster was seen by two fishermen who were enjoying their day just off the coast of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. What they saw was a hoax created by some people in 1934 by using empty bottles for a flotation device and attaching a head that resembled a dragon. Why they did, it is hard to say, but the fishermen were given quite a scare and decided to name it “Kingstie” after their location. This story is a bit more relaxed than some of the others, but even the hoax put quite a scare into many people’s lives, especially if they aren’t expecting to see a “sea monster” under their boat while fishing.
The Siren of Lake Erie
Lake Erie, as I’ve mentioned before, is home to several monster stories. This one is particularly chilling since it revolved around a demonic siren. This legend centers around a siren called the Storm Hag. She lives at the bottom of Lake Erie, and she is often blamed for the disappearance of many ships in the area. She is said to have yellow eyes, green teeth and skin, and long, sharp, and poisonous fingernails. Her teeth are also extremely sharp, and her eyes are said to have a demonic glow to them. Her voice is said to carry over the lake just before a storm comes, and when the storm arrives, she attacks the ship, kills the sailors, and brings this ship back to her home in the bottom of the lake. This is one of the most mysterious stories surrounding the Great Lakes. It’s pretty creepy, right?

Why do dolls get haunted? Why are they so popular with the spirits? And why does every haunted location have a doll in it? Listen in as we explore this phenmenon.
Letta the Doll
Letta the Doll also known as Letta Me Out is a doll moving alleged Kerry Walton moved from his home town in Wagga Wagga, Australia as a child. When he became an adult, he went back for his grandmother's funeral in 1972. It was here, during the 1970s, that a young man by the name of Kerry Walton decided to explore an abandoned house with his brother. The two men had always been inquisitive over the property, having heard countless stories of it being a haunted house as kids.
The story of Annabelle became infamous with the release of The Conjuring and Annabelle films. The real Annabelle is a Raggedy Ann doll that, while much less sinister in appearance, made quite a name for itself in the 1970s. Annabelle was given to a nursing student, Donna, by her mother. Donna, and her roommate Angie would often return home to discover that the doll had changed positions and or moved rooms. They’d also find handwritten notes scrawled onto parchment paper asking for help. In their book, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren indicate that the behavior went on for nearly a year before they became involved and ultimately took Annabelle into their care. In late 2020, rumors began to circulate that Annabelle had escaped the Warren’s Occult Museum, a panic that was eventually assuaged when the Warren’s son posted a picture of Annabelle safely in her case.
Ruby is a porcelain doll with a penchant for moving around from place to place. Currently residing with the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and the Occult, she comes from mysterious origins. Her previous owners said she had originally belonged to a little girl in the family, who died while holding the toy. Following that tragedy, she was passed down through generations until coming to her current residence at the museum. Visitors often report experiencing an overwhelming feeling of sorrow radiating from Ruby.

In this episode Jen and Joe talk about some legendary haunted locations in their favorite haunted town in Michigan, St Ignace. This little town, just north of the famous Mackinac Bridge. This little seaside town is packed with tails of the paranormal, from ghostly figures that walk the streets to Native Americans in the shops. No one really knows the number of spirits that roam there, just that there have been thousands of sightings threw out the years. Joe and Jen talk about some of their favorite cases of hauntings, but there are many more to find.
St.Ignace was founded by Father Marquette in 1671, and was named for St. Ignatius of Loyola. St. Ignace has a rich Native American history and was once the bustling hub of 17th century fur trade. In the mid-1800s, the population swelled as logging and commercial fishing went into full swing.
Today, the people of St. Ignace welcome visitors from all over the world to enjoy the natural beauty, alluring attractions, and friendliness of this uniquely wonderful vacation destination.
Downtown St.IgnaceIn the early 1900s, the few cars traveling the Straits crossed on railroad ferries at a cost of $40.00 each! In 1923, the Michigan State Ferry Service was established to transport autos between St. Ignace and the Lower Peninsula at the more reasonable cost of $2.50. During its first year of operation, 10,351 vehicles made the 1 hour crossing. In 1956, with 5 ferries running, about 1 million vehicles were transported across the water. During summer weekends, holidays and hunting season, as many as 9,000 cars were ferried, bringing line-ups of several miles and waits of 6 – 12 hours. The Mackinac Bridge replaced the Ferry Service in 1957. In its first few months of operation, the Mackinac Bridge recorded 140,000 vehicle crossings. Today, the Mackinac Bridge provides safe crossings for more than 4.5 million vehicles annually.

One of the mysterious disappearances we talk about is the disappearance of old Owen Parfitt from his sister’s front porch in the English countryside isn’t nearly as famous as, say, the disappearance of Amelia Earhart in 1937, but it’s even more mysterious. In the summer of 1763 (or thereabouts—accounts differ on the exact year), while living with his sister in the town of Shepton Mallet, the paralyzed 60-year-old Parfitt simply disappeared. He couldn’t have walked off, but even the farm workers in the field across the road from the porch where Parfitt was sitting didn’t see anyone come or go. One moment he was there, the next, poof.
We also briefly talk about the Missing 411 mysteries. Although we don't go deep into the Phenomenon we talk a little about the work by David Paulide.

In this episode, Jen and Joe talk about Ohio's ancient history. the history we have been taught is wrong. There are so many artifacts found all over Ohio that prove different. Carvings and Petroglyfts. If you take the time to look, you will see them all around you. Items such as The Newark Holly Stones, The Bat creek Stone (found in Knoxsville, Tenn), and other stones found all throughout Ohio.
Joe's passion for this reigon of study is more than just a hobby. As we travel throughout America attending Paranormal Conferences we stop at many locations to gather information to help learn more about the artifacts.
Some of the artifacts and mound structures we discuss in this episode are, The Newark Holly Stones.
The Newark Holy Stones refer to a set of artifacts, allegedly discovered by David Wyrick in 1860 within a cluster of ancient Indian burial mounds near Newark Ohio, now generally believed to be a hoax. The set consists of the Keystone, a stone bowl, and the Decalogue with its sandstone box.
The Bate Creek Stone
The Bat Creek Stone was professionally excavated in 1889 from an undisturbed burial mound in Eastern Tennessee by the Smithsonian's Mound Survey project.
Whether you believe that these are true or not, it is still a very interesting conversation. But with the evidence we have and have not yet found, we can clearly say that this is true.
We also discussed a park just north of Columbus, Ohio called Shale Hollow Park. You will find all kinds of interesting things in this park and all threw out Ohio. Please remember to share the show with your friends. And also visit the websites listed at the top of this description.
