The Bridgewater Triangle Bigfoot & the Purple Laser Beam

Image
By Kristen Good John Stanga is in his mid-fifties now and far away from the Bridgewater Triangle, having settled in North Carolina as an adult. But not a day goes by where Stanga does not think of most bizarre night of his life, when he and childhood friend witnessed a double whammy of a Class A Bigfoot sighting followed by a strange purple beam that shot down from the sky in South Weymouth. (A location about three miles from the northern tip of the area delineated as "The Bridgewater Triangle. ") John Stanga contacted me in 2011 with the following account: “I want to relay this story about, for the lack of a better term, “Bigfoot” sighting me and my best friend Dave had in September 1972 in South Weymouth, Massachusetts. The date was Friday, Sept. 29, 1972 at about 7:30 pm. Dave and I were 14 years old at the time and had known each other since 1 st grade. What happened that night is as follows: Dave’s family just moved to a new neighborhood they

The Bridgewater Triangle Mass UFO Sighting of 1972

Image
Many UFOs have been reported seen floating through the skies over Massachusetts’ Bridgewater Triangle over the years. The most famous sighting being in 1979 when two local newsmen would be two of hundreds of people who witnessed a low flying, baseball diamond shaped UFO.  Many of those sightings have been reported by local newspapers. On the evening of July 3, 1972  residents all around the south shore witnessed a large triangular-shaped, shiny  and "translucent" object in the sky. The Weymouth Naval Base received numerous calls by alarmed witnesses seeking answers about what the object might have been. But the Weymouth Naval Base could provide no answer to appease their fear and curiosity. “South Shore residents were still talking excitedly at Fourth of July barbecues and cocktail parties about a weird, unidentified flying object they saw Monday in the evening sky." "Residents in Scituate, Cohasset, Hingham, Marshfield, Rockland, Pembroke, Han

Troubled Waters: The Bridgewater Triangle's Infamous Lake Nippenicket

Image
Lake Nippenicket ( or “The Nip” for short) is 354-acres of extreme high strangeness. The Nip straddles Bridgewater and Raynham, and is located on the boundary line of Plymouth and Bristol counties. Cryptic creatures, spectral fires, Native American ghosts, UFOs and other unusual sightings have all been seen here at Lake Nip, a body of water that holds a mysterious history of accidents and drownings. For decades, this lake has held the reputation of stealing the lives people too young to die. With an average depth of a mere three feet—and just six feet at its deepest point—The Nip’s  morbid history of drowning certainly is one of The Nip’s biggest mysteries.  It seems as though Lake Nippenicket is a a place where anything can happen. The skies over The Nip are a favorite hangout for UFOs, and those same strange skies over the lake have rained frogs on at least on Alien pods? No, just a bryazoan, a rare organism that  survived the ice age which made an appearance in Lake Nip i

Horror In The Bridgewater Triangle: Is There A Serial Killer Among Us?

Image
Police search the area for more bodies and possible clues. By Kristen Evans January, 2014 A dark cloud has cast an evil shadow over the Bridgewater Triangle in the shape of what looks like a local serial killer. The terror started when the remains of two women were found in a heavily wooded area on the Brockton/Abington line on the outskirts of Ames Nowell Park at the end of December. Local papers reported that the women's remains were "stacked" atop one another, the top being the dismembered body of  20-year old Brockton woman, Ashley Mylett. The remains that lie beneath Mylett were identified as a 51-year old Linda Schufedt,  living in nearby Quincy at the time of her disappearance last July.  This story that sounds like an episode from " Dexter"  broke on Sunday December 28th when a local man walking his dog in the woods not far from his house stumbled upon a pile of severed body parts, including a foot, a calf, and an arm. On December 30th

The Lost Boy of Rehoboth

Image
The swamps of the Bridgewater Triangle have always been regarded as places to be avoided. Children whose homes abutted these dark and dangerous areas were adamantly warned by parents never to venture into the thick and often unsurpassable terrain. Disappearances in the woods and swamps of the Bridgewater Triangle is an area of research I have only recently delved into...and I am shocked at what I am finding: Case after case of disappearances, most of them children, who disappeared right on or near their family homesteads. Most of these stories I have yet to fully investigate, so at this time I can't report if these cases were ever solved, if the children were ever found. Other cases involve adults who went into missing in the woods and were found, but their memories of what happened are murky or non-existent. This story I am about to tell is one of the most interesting I have come across in my research: The story of the disappearance (and bizarre REAPPEARANCE) of a Rehobot

The Mystery of The "Black Dog" of The Bridgewater Triangle

Image
In the spring of 1976, the town of Abington went into lockdown mode when a huge throat-eating, "bullet-proof" dog mysteriously appeared in a rural residential area surrounded by over 100-acres of dense swamp. Fear rippled through the south shore of Boston after word got out the killer dog had ripped the throats out of two ponies. The dog had intelligently chased the animals--who had been tethered to trees--around and around until the they were tied helpless, unable to escape the teeth of the horrid beast.  When locals read the news that the beast had evaded two different bullets fired by two seperate town officials, all out panic ensued. This event was documented in the chapter on the Bridgewater Triangle in Loren Coleman's "Mysterious America" and has gone down in the Bridgewater Triangle legend books as the "The Black Dog of Abington."

Bizarre Appearances of Baby Seals in Two Bridgewater Triangle Towns: In A Span of Two Weeks!

Image
What if I told you that today you would walk out your front door and find a baby seal flopping around your lawn? It sounds far fetched, yet actually happened in late March of 2005, when a baby harp seal would appear on the lawn of a home in Middleboro. Making the appearance stranger was the fact that ANOTHER young seal had appeared on the lawn of East Bridgewater home only weeks before. Baby Harp Seal. Imagine finding this guy on your lawn? The children of the Middleboro family wanted to keep their seal, born just weeks before. The children named him "Kelby." Kelby weighed a mere 32 pounds and had journeyed all the way from Mount Hope Bay in Fall River, a long 25 miles. Police were quickly called and soon after marine biologists arrived. One of those marine biologists called to the scene was Belinda Runinstein, a seal specialist from the New England Aquarium. Rubinstein was very intrigued by this case. " What's interesting about this animal is he got

Hey! Teacher! Leave Them Kids Alone: An Unusual Bridgewater Triangle Haunting

Image
By Kristen Good In January of 1886, a Middleboro schoolhouse temporarily closed its doors due to panic over a ghost. The ghost--believed to be that of a young boy who died from traumatic injuries after a "severe flogging"-- had a reputation for helping children who were in danger of being punished by the teacher, even assisting the children in solving math problem by writing out the arithmetic in phantom writing mysteriously appearing on the chalkboard.  But when Miss Nancy Butler--a young woman who lived a short distance from the school--claimed that the ghost chased her home from work one night, joining her as she passed by the small school house, the children's fear grew into an all out panic. One local newspaper reported on January 28, 1886, "Miss Nancy Butler, a young woman living a short distance below the school house, tells her shop mates at the straw works that no longer ago than one week the ghost escorted her while passing down the road by the school

Flying Saucers, Baseball & Fireballs in the Bridgewater Triangle

1-23-2014  Correction: The Abington sighting was in October of 2012, not October of 2013. A recent wave of UFOs have been sighted in the area of the Bridgewater Triangle, as well as all over the world. These sightings differ immensely from the flying saucer, metallic-colored disk shaped sightings of the crafts sighted in 1940s to the 1960s and the triangle-shaped  craft seen by many in the area in the 1970s. These UFOs are glowing fireballs flying in formation. Usually five—sometimes six--glowing spheres, sometimes moving at incredibly high speeds, sometimes rotating in formation. The first of these local sightings was on October 12, 2013. Five orbs floated in over the Boston skyline and were captured on video by a witness in a nearby Boston skyscraper. Here is a clip of the sighting. Two nights later, these same objects would be seen and captured in Abington, this time zipping toward Boston. A month later, on November 20th, A Bridgewater University student would see
