The Lizard Man of South Carolina
Have you ever thought of a combination of man and lizard? But here now, there is a fearful story of ‘THE LIZARD MAN’
Christopher Davis, a 17 year old local, was going to his home by his car at 2 AM on June 29, 1988. Davis stopped his car on a road bordering Scape Ore Swamp in order to change a Tyre which had blown out. When he was finishing up, he heard a terrible sound from behind and turned around. He saw a green coloured creature running towards him. Fearful David got into the car. Suddenly, the creature jumped onto the roof of the car. Davis swerved from side to side in an effort to throw it off. When he reached his home, Davis’ side-view mirror was found to be badly damaged, and scratch marks were found on the car’s roof, though there was no other physical evidence of his encounter. This was the first incident in which The Lizard Man was introduced to the world. Davis reported about Lizard Man’s looks in such a way: The three big fingers, long black nails and Green rough skin.
By no Time, Many stated that they have seen the Lizard Man. Many reported the scratches on the cars by Lizard Man. So the people become fearful. Therefore the Police decided to investigate the matter. Footprints were found at many places, but they could not identify the animal. The news of Lizard Man attracted the tourists. So the people from farther places came to find the creature. But it was all in vein. Slowly, everyone forgot this matter.
But in October 2005, a Woman stated that she saw two creatures resembling ‘Lizard Man’ outside her home.
And in February 2008,’The Lizard Man’ reappeared. This time, this creature was seen by Bob Rawson and his wife Dixie Rawson of South Carolina. They reported strange damage to their vehicle, traces of blood and disappearance of some of their cats. Later, the traces of blood from their vehicle were found to be of Domestic Dog. But Lee Country Sheriff E.J Melvin believes it was a coyote or wolf. Soon after the incident at Rawson’s home, Melvin discovered a dead cow and a dead coyote in a field next to the Rawson’s home.
At 2011, a couple reported that their car had been attacked by something tall. Former Lee Country Sheriff stated that the damage on the car looks much like the damage from earlier incidents.
