The disappearance of 3 children in the small community of Edmore, Michigan has the towns people locking doors and barring windows this Christmas. A large patch of blood was discovered about 200 yards into the woods behind the house of the 3 missing children, leading some to believe that a creature from local folklore has returned.
asked a local police officer Ted Dokes stated that in the past 200 years
the area had a reoccurring history of children who have came up missing
during the week before Christmas under mysterious circumstances.
I write this story I will admit having difficulty finding information
about these events until I was directed to a local elderly man who over
the last 76 years had accumulated a file with local records dating back
to 1819. Paul Withrow, 92, a local life resident of the Edmore area show
me a file of 5 separate written accounts of children gone missing from
the area during the week before Christmas in 1971, 1933, 1895, 1857, and
1819. The 1971 and 1933 events were recorded in local law enforcement
records. The events prior to 1933 were hand recorded in local historical
documents, and none of the criminal events were ever solved.
1819 and 1857 records described 3 eye witness accounts of children
being dragged away by a small “Foul” looking creature called by the
locals as the “Christmas Chrylt.” The only reference in a search for the
term “Chrylt” showed a very obscure Korean definition as “christian
evil.” There are records of a Korean family that had immigrated to the
area in 1806, but its unclear if the term originated from that family.
strange fact that came to me as I looked over the documents in Mr.
Withrow's home was that there is exactly 38 years between the dates for
these past events. This seemed to come as a shock to Mr. Withrow and
Officer Dokes. It seems they had never noticed this before.
ever seems to be happening in this small Michigan community it has them
all extremely scared. Mr. Withrow says he clearly remembers the 1971 and
1933 events and its exactly the same. The town is almost completely
barricaded inside their houses waiting the holidays to be over. Officer
Dokes has said they have called in State Police to help in the
investigation and hopes to get to to the bottom of these crimes.
