Dark-Colored Winged Being Observed Over St. Joseph Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois (SKETCH)


A man and his fiancé are riding along W. Belmont Ave near St. Joseph Cemetery in River Grove, IL when he observes a dark-colored winged being flying high above the cemetery.

"Hello, my name is RC. I have lived in Franklin Park, Illinois for a few years now and have been following all the Chicago Mothman sightings. I had a day off work on April 20th (2022) this year and my fiancé and I were driving on W. Belmont Ave. going east around 9 am (it was W. Belmont Ave. right after River Rd). I was looking out the window (my fiancé was driving) and I saw over St Joseph Cemetery, flying high up, this black thing. At first I thought it might've been a drone but the way it was flying. I could tell it was not any kind of aircraft or bird that I've ever seen. It was all black and I could see it had wings, but I couldn't see any other features and no head. It wasn't flapping its wings either. It was just flying extremely fast at an angle.

I yelled to my fiancé, 'Do you see that? She couldn't see as it was almost gone and plus she was driving. I said, 'I think that's the Mothman thing everyone is seeing! It has to be!' But she dismissed it and said I was crazy. I really thought about not reporting it until this morning when I saw someone reported seeing three of these black things. The video is exactly what I saw, except it was only one I saw, not three like the person and his daughter in Bensenville.

I'm not an artist, but as the days were passing I decided to draw what I saw, I've enclosed the pic I drew on my phone. It was just this black thing. I didn’t take a picture or video because it would’ve been just a small dot with how fast it was flying into the clouds."

NOTE: There have been sightings in the general area before. The witness was reluctant to add additional information because of his fiancé, but I was able to fund out a bit more details which were added to the account. BTW, St. Joseph Cemetery is the final resting place for notorious gangster and killer 'Baby Face' Nelson. Lon

3 UAP, Possible Winged Humanoids, Recorded Near O'Hare International Airport (Screen Captures)


Two family members in Bensenville, Illinois observe and record 3 unidentified flying phenomena, possible winged humanoids, just west of O'Hare International Airport.

The following account was received by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research investigator Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse:

Date of Sighting: May 17, 2022

Time of Sighting: Approximately 1600

Location of Sighting: Bensenville, Illinois

Number of Witnesses: Two

Status of Investigation: Active

Sighting Details:

"I was outside in my backyard and preparing for a family cookout with my daughter when we both saw what I can only describe as three human-shaped objects that looked like they had wings flying overhead. It looked like they were all flying in circles about 60-70 feet above us and moving toward the expressway to the west of us. My daughter took out her camera and tried her best to take video of the flying people but they did come out a bit grainy and unfocused.

She and I were talking about how we had both been hearing about the Mothman that seemed to haunt O’Hare and since the airport is only about a mile and half down Irving Park Road, It seemed logical to me that this could be the same thing. We kept watching them until they were no longer able to be seen and I asked her to please send me the video. I know it’s not much but I tried my best but I’m an electrician and I’m not a professional photographer.

I can tell you that these were not planes and there were no planes in the area and since we are accustomed to seeing planes landing, they pass over our house at very low altitude and would have been very plain to see and hear in great detail. I have lived at this house for over 10 years and we are quite used to seeing these planes as they come in to land at the airport. These flying things were too high up and too small to be mistaken for any sort of aircraft. You didn’t need to be an expert to make out their shapes as roughly humanlike and what appeared to be wings, it could have been birds but these birds would have been pretty large if they were."

Investigator Notes:

I reached and spoke with the witness via phone and he recounted the incident to me. It was on Tuesday May 17th at about 4 P.M. when the witness says the incident was happening and he was in the process of preparing his backyard patio for the summer and an upcoming cookout. His 15 year old daughter was assisting him that day and was present when the incident took place. The witness stated that they looked up and saw three winged humanoids approximately 60 feet up in the air and they were circling overhead “Like buzzards do” as described by the witness. The daughter attempted to take video of the entities and that was submitted to UFO Clearinghouse along with the witness sighting.

The witness stated that he was certain it was not a plane or any other sort of powered aircraft and stated that the area he lives in is in-line with the nearby O’Hare International Airport runways and he is used to seeing planes fly overhead on final approach to land at the airport. He stated that they are extremely low in altitude and clearly visible in great detail and make a lot of noise as they fly overhead. The witness stated that these objects were too small and too high up to be planes and were completely silent when they flew overhead. The witness stated that he and his daughter watched as they flew out of sight and toward the west and route 83 which is on an overpass approximately 2 blocks from his house. When asked if he had seen anything similar to this the witness stated he had not and this was his first time seeing anything, although they had heard the reports coming from O’Hare airport about the string of winged humanoid sightings that have happened there in the past.

It is highly recommended that an investigator be dispatched to the area to gather photographic and video evidence and conduct a field investigation. The witness stated that he and his daughter would be open to talking to an investigator face to face if they were available. It is the investigators opinion that the case merits further investigation and that it be forwarded to the Phantom and Monsters Fortean Research Team for further investigation. Once a field investigation is conducted all details will be posted to the UFO Clearinghouse website for further analysis.


The original video appears to be a short 4 second long video of the alleged entities seen in the above sighting. Screenshots and digital zooms have been made of each individual object seen in the video.

Chirping 'Tall, Winged Insectoid' Reported by Amazon Delivery Driver in Bensenville, IL


4th sighting of a winged humanoid in the Bensenville, Illinois. As with other reports, this was a tall chirping winged humanoid, but reminded the witness of a flying insectoid.

The following account was received by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research investigator Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse:

Date of Sighting: May 13, 2022

Time of Sighting: Approximately 1900

Location of Sighting: Bensenville, Illinois

Number of Witnesses: One

Status of Investigation: Under Investigation

Sighting Details:

"I work for Amazon as a delivery driver and I was doing my delivery route at about 7 p.m. on May 13th In Bensenville, Illinois on Center Street just south of West Green Street. I had just finished dropping off a couple of boxes at a residence and was walking back to my van when I heard a chirping sound followed by a series of clicks that came in quick succession. I thought at first that it sounded like a woodpecker and that is what I dismissed it as until I heard the same sequence again and it sounded like it was coming from behind me. I turned to look and heard the sound again, I looked toward the sound and I could not believe my eyes.

There on top of the house next door was a tall thin winged person who was looking directly at me. It looked like a giant flying insect but must have been at least 6-7 feet tall. I initially jumped and as I watched it took off straight into the air and just flat out disappeared out of sight. I looked around hoping it had flown out into the trees but never saw it again. I walked back to my van and kept looking up hoping to see it again but did not and the rest of my route was uneventful."

Investigators Notes:

An investigator has reached out to the witness and is awaiting a response. Once further information has been obtained it will be posted to the website. This case has also been forwarded to the Phantom and Monsters Fortean Research Team for further investigation.
