Believed to be taken by a Bigfoot or something else, upwards of 10 people over time, have all but disappeared. The area they went missing from, is known as the Bennington Triangle. There simply were no traces of any them found, after they went missing initially.
Bennington Triangle, is the phrase first used by author Joseph A. Citro during a public radio broadcast announcement back in 1992. This describes specific areas, where these people all went missing between the years of 1920 until 1950.
Due to the number of reported sightings, in this Bigfoot region, some believe these people were taken by these large hairy bipedal creatures. Otherwise, speculations lead to another kind of bestial attack happening, such as a mountain lion being responsible. The locations where these people went missing, didn’t appear to show any kind of signs of a struggle. So, a mountain lion attack, is not really all that likely.
This eerie string of missing-persons cases—have still puzzled people, trying to solve them years later. The area itself, is covered with dense wooded patches of land, located in the southwestern part of Vermont. There have been reports about UFO activity here as well. Perhaps these people were abducted by aliens or by something else, such as a man-eating stone.
The first disappearance
The very first disappearance, took place during November 12, 1945 when 74-year-old Middie Rivers disappeared while out on a hunting expedition. Middie was far ahead from the rest of his group, when he vanished into thin air. The only thing found, was a single rifle cartridge in a nearby stream.
Some think he just fell into the water and drown somehow. Perhaps he slipped, striking his head onto a rock. The location where this happened, was at the Long Trail Road area, where Vermont Route 9 is located. Interesting enough, Middie was a very experienced hunter and fisherman. He was also quite familiar with the local area.
The second disappearance
When 18 year old sophomore Paula Welden disappeared on December 1, 1946, she went out on a hike along the long trail. A number of people watched her wander away including Ernest Whitman, a Bennington Banner employee, who actually gave her directions.
An elderly couple was behind her while she was walking along the trail. Reportedly, she was only around 100 yards away from them by best estimation. When she turned the corner part of the trail, she was gone never to be seen again. A $5,000 dollar reward was offered and the FBI assisted in trying to locate her. Rumors mention that she became a recluse living in the mountains. Others think she moved to Canada with her boyfriend.
The third disappearance
A man named James E. Tedford was the third to disappear from the area on December 1, 1949. To the date, it was exactly 3 years later, since Paula Welden vanished. James was a resident of the Bennington Soldiers’ Home. Previously, he was in St. Albans visiting with his relatives. Strangely, while riding on a bus before his last stop in Bennington, he seemingly vanished into thin air. All that was left behind were his personal belongings left on the bus on a luggage rack. A timetable was also found on his vacant seat.
The fourth disappearance
A young 8 year old boy, was next to vanish without a trace on October 12th, 1950. His name is Paul Jephson. After accompanying his mother in a truck, his mother left him unattended while she fed some pigs. It was about an hour before she returned.
She looked around everywhere for her son and he was nowhere to be found. The boy had on a bright colored red jacket, which certainly would have made him easier to spot. From what is known, the boy’s scent was picked up by bloodhounds in a search…which evidently led to the same spot of a nearby road where Paula Welden was last seen on the long trail.
The fifth disappearance
On October 28th, 1950, A 53 year old lady named Frieda Langer, was next to go missing sum16 days later, after 8 year old Paul Jephson did. This event took place, after she left her families campsite located near the Somerset Reservoir along with her cousin Herbert Elsner. While the two of them were hiking Frieda fell into the stream nearby.
She told her cousin Herbert to wait while she went back to the campsite to change into some dry clothes. He waited as she never returned again. After several weeks, there were search and rescue patrols conducted over the area. Frieda was nowhere to be found. A total of 5 searches were made, involving helicopters as well.
On foot there were well over 300 people looking for her. On May 12, 1951, her body was found near Somerset Reservoir. This area was previously searched however no cause of death could be determined due to the condition of her remains. Frieda Langer is the only person to date who’s body was been recovered. No connections to any other crime have yet to be determined. It is still unknown what killed her and how she died exactly.
Whether or not it was Bigfoot, aliens or something else, this area has been dubbed as a dangerous place to roam alone during the day or night. There are somethings which can’t be explained by rational logic. Sometimes we have to think outside the box and consider all of the possibilities. There have even been books written about the strange phenomenon happening here as well. Also, this has appeared on William Shatner’s WEIRD OR WHAT? program back in 2012 where the Bennington Triangle was showcased.
This urban legend originates with several creepy dolls, who were selected by a girl at a remote garage sale. The woman who sold the dolls, reportedly was unusual herself. Some believe that this woman practiced the dark arts. Perhaps with her witchcraft and/or voodoo, she imbued these dolls with something otherworldly. As time went by, things became apparently even more strange for this family.
This is the only known photograph to exist and the location of where it allegedly happened is unknown. It could have happened anywhere. The story about these dolls is a creepy one indeed. Urban legends such as these, often change over time with great detail. However, with this story, there isn’t much else known.
The little 9 year old girl, who bought these dolls, one day started saying that these dolls began talking to her. Her parents didn’t think much of this at first, only thinking that it was their daughter’s imagination, like any parent would initially believe.
Their daughter, told her mommy and daddy, how the dolls would change their facial expressions from time to time. The little girl would play with her dolls alone in her room during the day. It wasn’t until late one evening, when the dolls communicated to her, saying that she should kill her parents. If the little girl didn’t, then the dolls said that they would kill the girl. The daughter didn’t know what to do at first, until she grabbed a large knife from the kitchen.
The daughter then climbed into bed with her parents sandwiched between them, saying she couldn’t sleep. Discreetly, she had the knife with her. Her mother asked the girl whether or not she had another nightmare.
The little girl replied “yes”. Moments later, the girl reached for the knife and put the blade under her mothers throat. The father immediately grabbed the girl yanking her backwards and taking away the knife. Both of the parents were outraged and surprised at what their daughter was going to do. Sobbing in tears, the daughter explained why she was going to kill them. She told them about the dolls and how they were going to kill her if she didn’t kill them.
The morning after, the father (who was clearly upset) opened the door and entered his daughters room, as he glanced over at the two dolls, he noticed both of the dolls sitting on top of his daughters bed. In their hands, was the same knife covered in blood. As he glanced down, he noticed his daughter was laying on the bed dead. This little girl, was the same one who tried to kill them the night earlier it seems.
When we sleep, we sometimes fall into a deep slumber. Quite often, people fall into moments of contentment. Or, they will fall to the wayside of nightmares while they dream. One man shared what happened to him this year on the 30th of January.
It was a Sunday evening and he just finished up a conversation with a good friend of his on the phone. As he was laying down on a futon, which folds into a couch, he suddenly felt a strange disturbance happen seemingly out of nowhere.
This strange disturbance gave him the heebie jeebies (making him uncomfortably nervous). This disturbance happened quickly and when he opened his eyes (to his surprise) was a shadowy figure standing before him.
Image: Phantoms and Monsters (Shadow Man)
His dog began barking loudly, as he felt a strange sensation overcome him. The shadow figure was standing in the archway of his front door. The man then screamed, as he backed away while his dog kept on barking. Whatever this thing was, it then disappeared after only a few moments. The mans dog then ran into bedroom, where it then jumped onto the bed. The dog was both confused and frightened it seemed.
The man thought to himself, whatever this this was, it wasn’t human. He had heard about shadow people before and then wondered if this may well be one. This isn’t the first time he had seen one of these. However, it was the first time he noticed one in person and not in his dreams. He estimated that this encounter lasted for around 20 seconds or so.
Wondering if this shadow being made its way through some kind of portal, his imagination soon took effect. After thinking back to what he had seen, his best guess was that this shadow type man was around 6 feet tall. It was definitely a masculine shape but the lighting in the room, made it tough to see every detail.
The illumination was strong, almost as if there was a glow behind him. Thinking back to what he had seen, the color of its skin was that of a grayish color. There were no physical signs that stood out, like scars or predominate facial features. While whatever this was, it was weird. He didn’t think that it was an alien being of some kind but that of something else, perhaps demonic even.
The moment this happened, it wasn’t long after when the shadowy man—seemed to disappear back through a portal of some sort much like how he once appeared. It was like he came out of something and then went back into it.
One can only imagine, if this was some kind of interdimensional time traveler of some kind. It seemed like the shadow man, was sucked back into the portal of light that illuminated behind him. All of this was quite a sight to see the man claims.
The room was dark, as it was night so all of the light was rather intense. There was one light on in the bathroom that shined into the room. That’s it. This man, sleeps in his living room, because so many weird things have happened to him in his bedroom.
He just can’t sleep there anymore whatsoever. More than anything, he believes that this thing is something inter-dimensional. Reflecting back on the situation, he believes this only further frightened his dog, as all of this was happening and how he reacted towards it. Now, one can wonder just how this man sleeps (if any) at night. There have been other shadowy fiend type encounters, that people claim to have happened. While some of them seem quite unbelievable, others are quite questionable.
Recently, a great tragedy struck America, with a shooting taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada. The lives of 59 people were lost and over 530 people were injured on October 1, 2017. A 64 year old gunman named Stephen Craig Paddock was responsible for this massacre. Now, this is considered to be one of the worst incidents in US. history.
Stephen Craig Paddock
Paddock was armed with semi-automatic weaponry, who fired out from several windows (broken with a hammer) from the room he was staying in at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, from across the street.
In his sights, were thousands of country music concert goers, who were both confused and panicked as they searched for cover at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The artist on stage was Jason Aldean, he was the closing act that night.

There were screams of terror, happening everywhere, among those who died in the blood bathed streets of Las Vegas, some people in the crowd, recorded the event with their phones as the carnage continued. An estimated 22,000 people were here at this event. Paddock apparently brought into the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino 23 different guns.
He was able to setup multiple cameras as well, for his pre-planned assault from the 32nd-floor of the resort. A fire alarm was activated by smoke detectors, that detected gun smoke which helped police locate where the shooter was at 10:25 pm. At around 11:21 pm, police breached Paddock’s room with explosives.

Strangely, a mysterious woman pushed her way to the front of the line, at the concert that night. She then went on to rant, that everyone was going to die as she messed with another lady. The witness to this, was interviewed on camera. She went on to describe what happened. At first, the noises they heard at first were fireworks, as it turns out they were not.
This mystery woman was estimated to have left 45 minutes before the shootings began. This leads to the conspiracy, that there may be many more people involved in this incident. Pubic ally, limited information has been released so far. Obviously, law enforcement and other officials, are still trying to piece things together as some things have been filtered.
Paddock was a retired Internal Revenue Service agent from (1977–1984) and later a postal letter carrier as well. Paddock also was an accountant and multi-millionaire real estate investor, according to his brother. He also was best described as a high-stakes gambler who also enjoyed music concerts, traveling and taking cruises.
His neighbors mentioned that they rarely saw him and best described him as being quiet, solitary, and unfriendly. Paddock leaves behind his Filipino girlfriend Marilou Danley, who was sent away the day the incident took place. He also sent to her $100,000 US dollars. Marilou Danley, has now arrived back in the United States for further questioning about Paddock.
Perhaps a post made on 4chan, has further fueled conspiracy, as previously back on September 11, 2017 someone known as John, posted information about the Las Vegas shooting before October 1, 2017. Interestingly enough, the post has been deleted or archived. However, several other sources were able to capture it, before it was taken down, including another archive here.
The YouTube channel Truthstream Media, created an excellent video further delving into more details about more that may well be behind the Las Vegas massacre. Perhaps someone else out there, knows even more. It was a great tragedy that has affected many people. Our prayers and thoughts go out to those who suffered from this great loss.
A video was put together by ApexTV on YouTube. In this video, are 5 separate interviews—which give varying accounts about time travel and the future of planet Earth. Also, more information is given about humans future existence. What each person says, (whether fake or not) is still quite fascinating to hear. The following, are summaries about of each of these individuals and what they had to say.
Even this year in 2017, companies and governments around the world, are searching to expand further with artificial intelligence. Whoever first figures out its complexities, will essentially control the world in some way or another and certainly become rather wealthy.
Daily life will only further expand, with more technology coming—to aid the typical daily life of ordinary people. Already, robotics are advancing at a rapid pace and soon enough more will follow. The following information, is about each of the 5 time travelers, who share limited information out of fear of changing the future fate of the world.
1. The man in the dark
The first person interviewed, can actually be seen. Their name remains anonymous however, as they sit in the darkness talking. This is what they had to say, the people seen are talking on modern day cell phones, in different photographs from history. These are in fact not cell phones, but hearing aid devices instead.
These photographs have been deemed proof of time travel by a number of people. He then goes on to say that time travel does exist and that people of age may well live to see it. He claims that he was born 3 years before the first time machine existed. Initially, the government is the first to discover how to create a time machine.
Later, hackers reverse engineer this information and learn how to build them. He then says he was recruited by an independent agency, to spread news about future Earth. Resources have all but been depleted. The children of today and tomorrow, will not have the same amount of resources as once before. The Mars colonization program was only semi-successful. Only the wealthiest are able to move to Mars. This man said he was born in 2026 and Earth has become extraordinarily overpopulated.
2. Man leaves behind audio interview messages
This man begins quickly after leaving an audio message. Here is what he had to say. Most if not all human minds by the year 2500 will be reverse-engineered and then uploaded into a new digital reality. This essentially will make people immortal in some way. The mind will exist, within a new simulated environment.
At first, this was laughed off as nonsense, until eventually it becomes reality for people. This new reality will be better than what people are experiencing now in their life. In this new virtual type existence, there will be no disease, no suffering and people will live in a Utopian type society of sorts. There is nothing unwanted, unless someone desires the unexpected by their own choice.
By the year 2600, every ounce of information has been gathered and put online. From this point in time, only giant-sized computers will take up the physical space of planet Earth. It is unknown what will happen to the animals and other lifeforms.
Biological human beings still do exist. However, at some point in their life, they will upload their consciousness to the internet. People still will interact in a physical sense through the means of robots. These robots, will give people superhuman type powers in what they can do. All of this, will be made available to average citizens in the future. By the year 2650, Mars has been completely terraformed. From this, people are now able to inhabit planet Mars and by 2700, Venus and the Moon will soon follow.
Millions of people will live on these other planets. Traditional governments will no longer exist like they once used to. Vast amounts of online resources have helped to end conflict, war, poverty and diseases. Human beings at some point, will become biologically engineered as well.
By the year 3000, humans confirm the existence of extraterrestrials in the form of microbial life. However, no intelligent life has been discovered just yet. By the year 4000, computer science will reach its ultimate potential. For all of these reasons, this time traveler decided to return to our current time in the year of 2017 and enjoy a more simple kind of life.
3. Younger time traveler interviewed at park
While his image has been smudged out to keep his identity a secret, this mans blurred image makes him appear younger in age, perhaps in his early 20’s from his voice. The name “James” was used for the interview. James goes on to explain he was sent back in time.
He goes on to say, he was a part of a large scale agency to protect against large scale crimes. James and his agency, were apparently sent back in time, to stop disasters from occurring with specific key time traveling moments in mind.
Picked as the first crew leader, he explains why the government sent him back in time. There are military bases, which have been established as transfer sections. These time sections, allow for travel to certain places and moments in time.
Our section currently in this time, is known as Area 51 just like the named base location in Lincoln County, Nevada in the United States. The Area 51 location in Nevada, is meant for time travel purposes. James goes on to explain, that there is no longer multiple governments. In the not so far distant future, one government will exist in the world.
He declined to say which government takes over everything. Perhaps a new government will be established all together. James mentioned how everyone was worried that the world would end, back in 2012. He then said, that they had intervened to change the course of history.
The world was going to actually end back then but they stopped it. One can only imagine what they stopped or what threat was going to take place. The Mayan predictions of 2012, were in fact more time travelers sent back to that time section altering things for the fate of humanity.
The interviewer makes mention, that they were in an infinite loop even as the interview took place. Known as time section 1, it is the oldest point in time visited, that also has living creatures. James explains there are 2 different routes through time travel. The first is way is known as a tourist route, which is used for vacation purposes.
The travel itself, is comparable to riding a plane. There are baggage areas, a cockpit and even a bathroom. It takes up to 8 hours, for this time travel method to actually work. Prominent travel destinations can be traveled to and experienced throughout history.
Examples of this includes, The Gettysburg Address, The signing of the Declaration of Independence and even the first ever live movie. Even Walt Disney himself, can be met back in time. The second type of time travel is used for military purposes. This process is much quicker, only taking minutes but the traveler experiences extraordinary pain from their journey. Traveling to the future is also possible, as James jokes how he gets back to the future where he is from.
From what is said, another war is coming, World War III. It begins with the second civil war in America. North Korea, apparently is able to bomb the east coast of the United States, within the next 4 years. James explains that this is why he is telling the interviewer now—as if this doesn’t happen, then people will only think he is crazy as well as this interview. If this event isn’t stopped, then James said he wouldn’t be alive to return to 2017 for the interview in the first place.
4. Audio interview about the future of the world
In a rather somber voice, this man states that he is a time traveler. He then goes on to say, that what he says, people are probably not going to believe. His message is a simply one, it is about the future of Earth and humanity. He claims that he is one of hundreds who have traveled from the future, to go back to the past to spread the word about the world’s fate.
Contacting as many people as possible, he says that by the year 2100, the world’s population will reach a staggering 12 billion people. Africa has doubled its population since the year 2017. Poverty levels are higher than ever and there is a worldwide food shortage. In less than 100 years, our world will be a much different place due to pollution and lack of environmental care. Even though people now may not live to see this, their children and grandchildren probably will. His state is a simple one, we need to improve the environment for the future of the world.
5. Time traveler meetup at public park
The production team of ApexTV, went to meet up with another young man in a public park. His face and voice has been distorted to keep his identity safe. He goes on to say that his intention is not to deceive anybody. For safety of everyone and how the world will be, this guy wants to share his message.
In the year 2004, he was selected as a part of a top secret program, to be sent forward in the future. Specifically, he was sent to the year 2100. He goes on to say, that there are future issues we need to address now, to prevent things from happening in the future. This man says that he is breaching disclosure agreements by being interviewed.
The last thing the people who sent him into the future want, is for him to share any information to the general public. He has since been sent there and back from 2004 to 2100 several times. Irreversible climate change becomes the number one priority by 2100. As previously with the audio interview heard, this man also says that people need to change their ways now and start caring what we do to the environment.
Overpopulation becomes another primary issue Earth. To rectify this, people are sent to other planets to live. The only planet mentioned is Mars, as he holds back further information about the other planets. He does state that in the year 2028, time travel to the past, will be possible for people. He used the word ‘products’.
With this, perhaps those in charge, weren’t happy with those who shared too much information and could simply eliminate them all together, erasing them from any kind of existence. He explains that artificial intelligence becomes far greater than the capacity of a human being.
This becomes an epic problem for humanity, as the artificial intelligence created now seeks to control us and the world. Regulations should exist to prevent this from spiraling out of control in the now. Otherwise, humans will be in great danger in the future.
Earth at some point, will have to be terraformed for it to thrive longer as Co2 becomes a problem in the air. While there is much that can get out of control, he said there are benefits to this newfound artificial technology that is on its way. This unknown man said that some videos are circulating, which show people teleporting in certain locations. This is really happening and that they are colleagues of his.
All of this is quite incredible to think about, perhaps some of it holds some truth and it is difficult to believe that this is really happening. Humans need to take action now before its too late!
