Another Creepy Figure Spotted in Kentucky…What Could It Be? [VIDEO]
While hanging out at the lake Sunday, I asked my nephew the following question..."Why do you think the Marianas Trench strengthens my inability to totally discount Bigfoot?"
WHY I DON'T TOTALLY RULE OUT URBAN LEGENDS
Some might think that's a head scratcher of an inquiry, but I know my nephew and he totally got it. He correctly responded that because of the depth of the Marianas Trench (just over 36,000 feet or around 7 miles), there must be creatures so far beneath the ocean's surface that they've never been identified because they are out of reach.
I believe the same can be said for the deepest most remote parts of jungles in South America, Africa, and Asia. And THAT'S why I can't completely write Bigfoot off. There are still LOTS of creatures that have yet to be discovered.
So when something happens--like the possible appearance of a creepy figure of myth of folklore--that can't immediately be explained. I launch my "Marianas Trench Theory."
A CREEPY FIGURE IN EASTERN KENTUCKY
In this case, we're talking about a mysterious figured spotted on a trail in Powell County, Kentucky. The video is brief, but they WERE trying to get away from it. I would, too.
And it may not be a CREATURE at all; it's standing on two legs and appears to be wearing some kind of long coat. Let's HOPE it's not a creature, anyway. If it is, that makes whatever it is ESPECIALLY creepy.

THOSE WHO LIVE IN THE KENTUCKY MOUNTAINS DON'T RULE ANYTHING OUT
While she was the target of some (unnecessary) derision for posting it, Gwen Liming was having none of it, and she explains why:
I noticed in the comments that some people think it’s a hoax. Well I am originally from those old hills in Kentucky. I have heard and seen a lot of things I couldn’t explain. I’ve heard the stories from the ole (sic) timers that would make a bald guys hair curl. But I’m telling you what. I dare you to go back in one of those holler’s (sic) night or day and you will be scared to death. Specially (sic) just a couple of kids alone. If you look closer at the pic if you look close enough “the thing” looks as if you can see through it. Don’t make fun of what you don’t know. U never know when it could happen to you.
And Hollis Haskins jumps in with pretty much what I was saying earlier in this story:
Those who are quick to yell that it's fake have no earthly idea what awaits out there in those dark hollers. Earth holds many, many, unexplained mysteries. I know from experience that there are apparitions In KY, and other states as well. So my theory is to, Never say never.
Trinity Paige said that it looks like a skinwalker, then followed with a laugh emoji. So I'm gathering she was kidding. And since I've seen a number of DIFFERENT images labeled skinwalkers, I'm going to have to go with NO on that suggestion, as well.
WELL...WE CAN PROBABLY RULE OUT SKINWALKERS
And what we see in this Skinwalker Ranch documentary series kind of bears that out.
BUT CAN WE RULE OUT AN 'ESCAPEE' FROM POWELL COUNTY'S NADA TUNNEL?
So who knows what those kids saw? I think it's creepy, too. Maybe it "escaped" from Powell County's Nada Tunnel, long rumored to be haunted.
SgtMarkins, who posted this, gets to the tunnel at the 3:25 mark.
You heard what he said. He could have sworn there was a bike (motorcycle?) behind him.
We may never know who or what that creepy figure is from Powell County. Let's hope he or she likes to keep their distance, in case it IS something about which folks in that part of Kentucky need to be concerned.
