Missouri -- Black-Eyed Child
In 2009, a Lawson, Missouri, housewife answered a knock at her front door to find a young girl she did not recognize. The child, about seven years old and wearing a white dress, had dirty hair and bad breath. She said she needed help and pleaded to come inside, but the woman noticed the girl's eyes were coal black. The woman immediately closed the door and locked it; she was so traumatized that she needed medical attention and refused to leave her house for days. Dozens of reports of black-eyed children appearing at people's doors have surfaced from around the world in recent years.
