Followed by a Cryptid

Followed by a Cryptid
Hi I'm Seath,

This is my story that has started from 1992 and still continues to this day.
My story starts in 92 our family had just been relocated to the Mohave Desert from my dad being transferred by his job to work across the Colorado river in Laughlin NV . We rented a house on the AZ side of the river due to it being cheaper then the NV side. From what I do remember we rented from a Native american who went by his CB radio name Dakota I do not remember his real name. CB radio was the 90s Voice chat for people living out in the middle of nowhere. Anyways when we were moving in we could see the river at the end of the road of the street we lived on, he warned us the river is very dangerous at night and if you hear anything unusual just go inside and lock the door. My mother asked like what party drunk people? He shook his head no, He told us don't take it the wrong way but alot of people die at the river at night thinking they see people downing or screaming for help and nothing is there and the fast pace of the river takes them away and do not have a chance to escape its rapids. If you hear someone calling for help just call the police do not investigate , it may not be what it seems.
He just turned and looked at the river then at the ground and let out a sigh, then he said there are thing that walk this earth that cannot be explained and sometimes its best to leave them be. I just stood there being only 9 not knowing what he was talking about and my dad just said ok. We lived in the house for about a year nothing out of the ordinary had happened work, school, church dinner repeat until one Sunday night after church. My dad and I were sitting in the garage with the door open just watching the river and the stars we basically had no light pollution and there was supposed to be a meteor shower, it was about 9:30pm my dad told me to get inside and get ready for bed for school tomorrow. As was about to stand up we heard what sounded like crying coming from the direction of the river and asking for help but it didnt sound right at all. It was like trying to talk with out your tongue and like you had water in your throat, we looked back and forth trying to pinpoint where it was coming from. Then you could see a woman walking out of the river trees / brush. As she walked it sent chills down your spine it was staggered but like it was walking on 2 feet for the first time.
We just watched it walk across the field to the road that connected to our house, my dad stood up and took a step forward and the woman stopped instantly. She tilted her head and slowly looked at us, she was pale covered in mud, brush and water. Her head kept tilting unnatural it looked like it should have snapped but it didn't, we both froze her eyes were a reflective silver as her head bobbed from the tilting it reflected like animal eyes would. After what felt like an hour even though it was only a few seconds it fell face forward with force you heard the body hit the ground "SMACK" and dust flew up. At this point I stood up trying to see where it was, then it just screamed not just from the throat but from the depth of its chest high and low pitches roared and echoed across the desert. My dad pushed me back into the garage getting ready to close it then it popped back up and it was on all fours still with its head tilted and start running at us at full speed. My dad shoved me in and slammed the door shut and locked the inside bolts to prevent it from opening, soon as that latch lock "BAM" it hit the garage.
Screaming and scratching continuously at the door yelling "HELP" and "LET ME IN" then it stopped our hearts pounding then you could hear it sniffing the crack of where the door meets the driveway and see its shadow moving back and forth saying "I HAVE YOUR SCENT" then the shadow was moving to where the front door is, at this point my Mom open the garage door that connect to the inside of the house looking at us like WTF are you making all this noise. She saw us on the floor scared to death and instantly my dad bolted up and ran past her to the front door to check it, the front of our house was on the corner of the street covered my large windows easily could be broken. The door was already locked and he looked out the windows nothing was there it was bright from the street lights and no sign of the monster.
We told my mother what happened she really didn't question it, she heard the screams and banging. The next morning Dakota came out we told him happened, walked the property not saying anything stopped at the garage door looked at the dents and scratch marks then he turned and looked at field and river. He looked over the field and river walking back n forth from our property but not taking one step further toward the river or the field, he panned looking up and down the dirt then stopped he pointed at the dirt said "There". We all looked down and it was track marks coming from the field to our street there were only tracks on the dirt and nothing on the street it must have cleared the street when it rammed our garage door. We went to go look at the tracks Dakota put his hand up and shook his head "don't touch it" he said it would be wise for us to move because it would be back and he needs to cleanse the house and recommended we do so ourselves. He knew a friend in the next city further away and would talk to him to see what he had available to be quick as possible. My parents didn't question it while Dakota took care of that my dad took a new job in the city further away as a police photographer.
I would like to say things were better after the move but they were not, this house was haunted to put it in simple terms. We lived in the house for 2 years, not a lot happened at once small things at first the tv would turn on by its self, after we would leave the curtains would all be pulled shut making the house extremely dark. The house had a fence around the entire property including the house so no one could just walk up to the house my mother had to locks on all the gate, we would constantly see dark shadows walking by the window or crunching from leaves. The shower would constantly turn on the plug would be put it trying to flood the bathroom, towel racks would be pulled out from the wall, and foot steps walking up and down the hall like on hardwood floor even though everything was carpet except the kitchen. But the worst of all was this wooden shed outside it was small just big enough for tools and the ground dirt was so hard it was like concrete no shelves windows nothing bare. This shed constantly sounded like someone coming in and out slamming the door neighbors would call the police and complain, and the officers would joke at my dad and say what is your house haunted or something so we drilled latch and bolted and locked it shut.

We just got use to it and were just waiting for our lease to be up and then we were going to move back to Vegas at the end of the year. So its Christmas eve the last year of our lease, we were getting ready for midnight mass we were at the front door getting our coats when all the lights started going in and out like in a thunderstorm messing with the power but it was a clear night just freezing about 15F. My parents kept our jeep outside the fence under the street light it was just easier then opening the garage door and the gates every time to leave, something caught my mothers attention to the jeep even with the lights flickering. There was something crouched behind the jeep with its hands on the hood looking around the corner of the vehicle, she told me as soon as its eyes reflected silver she knew what it was from what we told She said under her breath "What the hell is that?" as I looked out and saw it we made eye contact it stood up from behind the jeep like it was waiting for me to see it.
As it stood even though it was under the street light it was like it was absorbing the light making more shadows, but you could tell it was the body of a woman/ish the body was a woman with matted fur across its chest pale arms legs inverted legs and hooved feet and a decaying deear skull on her face no antlers just matted hair and pulled flesh. At this moment we were looking at the monster again all the doors in the house slammed shut and a deep demonic gritted voiced yelled get out as this moment before we could react to the house the monster was walking to the front door as everything around was getting darker with each step. My mom grabbed my sister and yelled at my dad to follow, we went back into my sisters room where it had a phone and no windows, we called the police and just said someone was trying to break in because who would believe hey a monster is trying to break in and the house is yelling at us.
Since my dad already worked with the police a few of the officers had spare keys to feed the animals when we left town to visit relatives and such. This next part is from there perspective 4 officers showed up they unlocked the gates and doors, 2 in the house and 2 walking the perimeter. inside all the light were out and occasional flicker making a pop sound blow out the bulb, they said it felt like they were constantly being watched and heard foot steps leading to the garage but found nothing. The two officers were outside and it said it was eerily quite the frozen ground crunching with each step when one of the officers pointed at one of our trees a dark shadow was in the tree and they when they shinned there flash light at it all they saw was reflective eyes. Before they could say anything it jumped out of the tree and bolted for the shed ripping the door open and slamming it shut. from the inside you could hear "What the hell" *Boom heavy running then SLAM* The officer called for the 2 inside you could hear the police yelling at the shed we have you surrounded come out, each time they called out for them to come out the wall banged louder each time you could hear the wood cracking and echoing in the cold air.
When the officers yelled we are coming in we are armed, come out with your hands up, then one last "BANG" then silence they opened the door nothing was there just the smell of rot like something died in there. it was empty no lights nowhere to go it is just a small shed and frozen earth. Clearly they were spooked but it unexplained I remember one of the officers saying this is some X-files shit right here, It was just filed as wild life disturbance not a break in. For the rest of the lease we just stayed at a hotel and when the time came we just took what we needed and left the rest.

This is the house and it is for sale again, for some reason before I decided to write this I looked it up and its been for sell a long time. what still scary its bright as hell and the rooms are still very dark and the towel racks are still ripped out

After we moved back to Vegas my mother was obsessed with the paranormal she wrote letters called priests to anyone who would giver her the time of day to trying to find a way to protect us, we got more crosses, holy water, rosary's on all door handles dream catchers in every bedroom and she got some blessed salt , and salt rocks put on all entrances and windows, she also put curtains on all the mirrors reading info it could be used as portal. A bit over kill you might say but the truth of the matter after seeing that twice i was game and it became normal, and nothing happened for years until 2003 7 years later.
In this time my mothers health was greatly fading and could not take the heat with constant migraines that followed, so we moved to Douglas county much cooler and close to the mountains. At this point Im working my sister stayed in Vegas starting her life, I could have done the same but with what my mother was going through I didn't want to leave her to deal with this. As time went on she began walking around the house at all hours of the night arguing with shadows in the corner and yelling leave me alone. I couldn't see it but with her health dropping the paranormal activity started up again as it is was her spirit and will was keeping us safe and now with her health failing the locks were broken and they walked in the door. I never saw to much because I worked graveyard and slept in the daytime and nothing very strange happened in the morning would see shadows or something in the corner of your eye but that's about it. After some time my mother passed from a Arianism this was her 2nd one she survived the first one, after the funeral and all the family left the activity exploded.

one morning I was sleeping after I have gotten off work my dad and I worked apposing schedules and rarely saw one another, I was sleeping and I heard my closet door I tried to open get up I couldn't move I was locked down I couldn't even open my eyes. I could hear foot step walking up to my bed but they were long steps not short like moving left to right as if it was creeping up. I felt to pressures put at the foot of my bed first right at my feet then I could feel it creep up on my bed walking over me. The air turned humid it was thick it smelled like a drain that has not been cleaned and the bacteria has built up in the drain I work in food my whole life and we have drain socks to catch all the debrie from going down and when those don't get changed out they smell awful and that's what it smelled like or what my brain connected to. As is crawled up to my face I still could not move i was stuck and I;am thinking this is it I'am going to be eaten Im screwed, with each pull forward I could feel what im guessing is its hair on my face and warm/cold moist feeling up to my face then it spoke. The same voice I have heard before years ago back in that garage gurgles no tongue " I Found You" my heart sank I was scared before now and deathly scared if I could piss myself I probably would have.
I pulled deep with in myself and ripped myself up flying out of bed my arms and legs going in every direction hitting my computer chair that was next to my bed and kicking my desk. Nothing was in front of my or my bed I looked around the rooms and my closet door was still open but just a crack directed at my bed as if it has been watching me fling around. I left the apartment when to the hardware store got some chain and locked my closed shut and a board and nailed it across the door I didn't care about my deposit or wanting to experience that again. after that nothing happened again not even shadows like poof it was gone all of it but constantly felt like something was watching me from somewhere and I couldn't explain it, the only place I felt safe was work and I worked at a casino lights and hundreds of people I worked as much over time took other people shifts or sat in the bars after work I didn't want to go home. Eventually our lease was up and we moved into a new apt closer to our jobs and across town and a 2nd story facing the street with lots of light.

Once again nothing happened the apt was nicely lit the sun came in the windows every morning and the streetlight kept it lit after dark it made me happy and safe. Then its about another year and half goes by this is the last few months I will be living with my dad we never see each other and just dont talk that much after my mother passes I felt it was time to move on because nothing happens to him just me. So he went out of town for a month vacation and I was going to pack that month and move out when he got back. I took a vacation as well because you will laugh at this time World of Warcraft Burning crusade was launching and my friends wanted me to start a Blood elf and play a paladin for the guild since I already had experience playing it on alliance. I did we pulled all dayer because i worked grave yard daytime was my night time. I was tired it was about 11pm I havent at night in years now so I didnt even think about anything or my haunting past I hit the pillow i was out.
I woke up hearing someone in my kitchen I look at the clock its 1am I put my head down thinking my dad was just making a late snack that he did alot, Then I snap up he is out of town I press my ear up to my door I hear foot steps outside my door away to where the kitchen is. I could hear clicking "tick tick tick tick tick" Im like what the hell is that? Then it dawns on me, it is the gas stove and the fire has not been lit. I hear a door open close to me and close. Im confused the only door near my left side where the sound came from was the Linen closet. I bolt out into the kitchen all the gas is on no flame i turn it all off turn on the stove fan open the front door to get air flowing again the I heard a rustle in the linen closet and almost a giggle like someone laughing. I turned and looked at it, at this point i wasent afraid I didnt care what was in there I put my hand on the door handle and ripped the door open nothing just cramped racks of towels no one could hide there not even a child or a cat.
I let it air out then I left went to walmart and bought new door handles and locked all the doors shut if they were not in use and moved my computer desk in front of my closet door so it could not be opened. I never used it i mostly worked and just my winter coat and thing for the move. now its about 4 am Im still tired but feel safe enough to sleep I tapped the gas knobs, I lay down and with little effort I fall back asleep. The again I wake up to a "BOOM" and shaking I bolt up and everything is pitch black expect a emergency light blinking on and off from the outside I look around everything is dark, then I stop I could hear breathing behind me I already knew what it was the sound was the same. My bed is right along the wall on the window so I could open and get air when needed so I wouldn't have to blast the air conditioner. I turn my eyes first I could see a shadow in my window, unlike my first encounter I was not frozen I was incontroll I slowly turned my head and it was there the Deer Woman she was standing in the window seal two hooved feet on the wood one arm holding on the frame. The window was still open from the gas and I wanted to make sure the apt was vented. At that moment we locked eyes she tilted her head again as she did before it felt like a eternity this time i could clearly see everything.
But this time she changed again the first time walking corpse, 2nd time decaying deer monster, 3rd time humid and moist. Now the forth time still a Deer skull but it was clean white endless darkness in the eye sockets no skull or eyes inside just darkness a void of all life and light, her hair was no longer matter just long and black/brown fur covers her chest like a fur shawl from the 50s and it was black as the eye sockets and the same fur hooved legs. What felt like a life time she reached at my face Im assuming to grab me, I flung out of bed slammed against the wall trying to turn the light on and nothing everything is our except the flashing yellow emergency lights from the apartments outside. I looked back at the bed she was still there and started walking forward the bed creaked and cracked from the weight the sound of wood to this day still scares the hell out of me. I tried to open the door but i forgot i locked it and my brain couldn't comprehend that i locked it earlier and just had to unlock it was pure flight mode. I just grabbed my computer chair next to me closed my eyes and flung it at the window and crash class broke I open my eyes chair on the bed broken glass and it was gone. I walk up to the window and nothing is there not even foot prints or dented wood a flashlight hits my eyes blinding me i raise my hand to block the beam it was security asking if I was alight we had a earth quake and a gas pipe blew whole towns out. He said did the quake break your window I just said yeah said not a issue they would come back later and get it fix just put up card board and tape it up might be awhile I just noded.
The window was fixed my dad came home I didnt bring it up and shortly I moved out to start my life, and for years I moved around but did not see the Deer Woman again for a very long time. I know the story is long so we will do a speed round, got in contact with a shaman back in the Mohave desert where it all started they I was not alot to give details but got a spirit cleanse ceremony and smudging. He told me this would only keep the smaller spirits away but what has attached itself to you will be much harder I cannot help you will need to strengthen your will and spirit like your mother and that power will protect you. In way I knew he was right when my mother reached out and did all those things years ago was over kill but nothing happened. after years of working transfers moving across the nations from Pennsylvanian to Hawaii I land back in Douglas county go figure right. Im married with children we just moved into town to be closer to my wifes parents, staying with them untill apt was ready to move into.
So at this point like my mother I have rosary's on door hands blessed salt in the windows, and we have our birth stones blessed and put into the corners of entrances and house corners. I dont cover mirrors but I still lock all closet doors to this day. its now 2016 and while we are sleeping with the window open her parents dont have AC i hear rustling outside the window I didnt think much of it because it was covered in black berry bushes and rose bushes whom ever is going to try and break in is going to have a bad day. I look out side the window and the deer woman is looking in at me, I quickly shook my wife she was pissed to say none the lest i pointed at the window and motioned "shhh" she looked and quickly got wide eye I grabbed her with my left hand preventing her from moving. The Deer Woman looked at me then at the seal of the window as if it was looking at the salt the looked back and forth of the birth stones it looked at my wife then bolted from the window could hear cloping sounds like a horse on the pavement fading away. after it was gone the street lights seemed bright again and the sounds of the crickets came back, my wife was shaking me like WTF was that, I told her thats my cryptid stalker i told you about.

She always listened to me and always thought I was going over board but never questioned it she knew I wasent lying. This was her first paranormal encounter and now the window has been opened for her she see shadow people, things moving now she dosent like it want the window closed again but now knows the world just got more scary and is more helpful blessing and protecting the house now. It has visited my wife when I was working late one night she went to let the dogs outside the backyard she opened the door and the dogs quickly nope'd and walked behind her refusing to go out. She was confused and then it dawned on her there was no noise, no bugs, wind, the sounds of cars going to the freeway like she was in a bubble the noises dogs next door were quiet and they never where. She started to look over the backyard she saw nothing then that's when she spotted it, there was a shadow in our neighbors yard under his apple tree. It was the same skull she saw in our window just watching her from the next yard over then it just took a step back and told me it just fell into the shadows like it was water and disappeared and then all the sounds came back. Its now 2020 we live by the mountain side there is no development behind us just empty land, I dont sleep at night to this day still work graveyard. I when I take the dogs out between 1am and 4am he mountains are watching you can hear giggling, screaming, laughing from the hills there is nothing out there Ive taken my dogs up there many times there no way a car can get up there or let alone drunk teens no cans no campires tracks foots prints nothing. My dogs hate going up there so i dont do it, every once and awhile I can feel her watching catch a shadow watching me from the hill standing in rocks a shadow darken then the darkness. I know she is not done with me, but I come to realize that I will be followed for life.
Its like a standoff right now, I know shes there she knows I know shes real and I don't know whats next. I don't know what the game is, if death was the answer wouldn't she have just got me those 2 times I was sleeping. I feel like will never have the answers and I will have to pass the strength onto my children so they will be safe in life.

I have shared this before but in this version is much long and more detailed then I have ever wrote before.

I realized i have a problem and cant go to casinos anymore

My story. 41 yo male living with my 37 yo gf and mother of our 6 month old son. I am the breadwinner and work full time while she stays home with baby. My drug of choice has been blackjack tables at my 2 local casinos. It has not just caused me financial issues but has givin me too much anxiety and depression and even when i am winning big i cannot stop. As i was soaking in the hot tub this morning from my comp room night i had some deep soul searching and am no longer going to gamble. Its not who i am.
My ignition into the gambling world started in 2014 when a friend of mine invited me to laughlin nevada for a gambling trip at the tropicana hotel. I mainly just played the slots there. By share fluke i made $500 on one lucky spin. I got that first taste of that rush and excitment to chase more wins and tried roulette and bombed horribly bring me form 575 bank roll to 325. Fortunatly it was a short stay and drove home. From 2014-2017 i took about 3 more trips there and that was all the gambling i did.
Then on my birthday 2018 my new gf at the time took me to my local casino for my birthday and gave me 100$ gambling money which i took to the BJ table and burned thru it horribly, although I was not very preoccupided with gamblng that day because i was having drinks with her and we had other fesivities going on.
But a couple months later i started to read up on blackjack and memorized basic stratagy 100% by playing apps on my phone and then realized i could go back to that casino with much better odds. I went back and won big. close to $1,000. Then the chase for that high never went away, gambling has been a big roller coaster of Happy cheering winning moments, to very stressful and anxiety racking losing moments.
Since then ive been secretly taking trips there 1x 2x per week and secretly withdrawing money (and depositing winnings) into my bank acct which affect my family. Ive gambled away money that was needed to pay important bills. Even now the electric bill and car insurance are late. Ive used any lie or excuse to get there. Most commonly secret vacation hours used while she thought i was at work and BS OT on my day off. While i have had some really nice big wins ive lost lots of money too. I really cant take not just the guilt anymore but the psychological anxiety and stress gambling has put me through. One night as I was rocking my son to sleep after having lost $600 that day I actually cried thinking about stuff that our son needed such as diapers toys Etc, in the wave of guilt an emotion that my bank account was drained and I couldn't provide for him was the worst feeling in the world. I am too addicted. When i play BJ i am at the table all day. I cant handle it as just entertainment. Last night after coming up $800 only to dwindle it all away then being down By 150, I realize I have a big problem Its gone too far. .i am quitting for good and am so ashamed of myself. I have no one to talk to about this.
I want to quit and i don't want to ever visit a casino again. I am no longer a gambler. But my heart is hurting right now, $800 that I won and woulda helped my family and then to lose it all and become 150 down really hurt my family, theres hardly any money to buy groceries this week because of my stupidity. As I'm typing this story I am severely depressed, ashamed, but wanting to be a better person, someone who doesn't Gamble. But now my girlfriend has started to catch on to me and is disgusted and angry with me. She hates me. All I can do is try to be honest that's her, things are not well. I am so ashamed to have gotten addicted to Blackjack. I know i may get impulses to try it again after today, but I must delay and distract, I must remind myself how unhealthy of a habit it is and how it's destroying my life with my family, and wrecking my mental health. how it's making me so irresponsible with money.. I must take up new hobbies and interests. I need all the support I can get.

TIFU by telling a waitress to “pick up the pace”

This happened a while ago but one of the stories here made me think of it.
When were were vacationing in Vegas with my grandparents my grandma kept insisting we go to Laughlin to go to the Riverside casino, I forget the exact reason she wanted to go since she was kinda eccentric like that so finally to appease her we agree to go (she probably had coupons for free stuff, gambling credits or some such).
Anyway we get there around lunch time so we decide to get the buffet. They end up seating my sister and I at a different table than my grandparents because it was pretty busy. Now my grandparents are the type to sit at a buffet forever to let “their food settle” so they can get more. My sister and I are impatient and want to go wander around but my grandma would get lost somewhere in the casino and you’d have a heck of a time locating her. So we start joking around and trying small samples of food I eventually get some nachos. Now the salsa for the nachos is Pace, nothing fancy or fresh. So I say this to my sister and am making fun of the hotel being cheap and just using Pace instead of some fresh salsa or something like you’d find at say Wynn’s. So anyway bored and impatient we are loudly joking about the commercial where they say “Pick up the Pace” well I don’t realize the waitress that was getting our drinks we literally right next to us grabbing empty plates we were placing next to our table (and there were a ton of tiny ones because we were getting like one or two things at a time while waiting). The waitress apparently thought I was talking to her and loudly says “Well Excuse me!” and looks all angry then storms off in a huff. Never did get my coffee refilled after that, and My sister and I still had to wait a while for my grandparents to wrap up their long stay at the buffet. I left her a decent tip. I hope she wasn’t too mad.
TL:DR, was making fun of the cheap salsa at the buffet and the waitress thought I was telling her to hurry up

Neither the Server Nor the Buffet Manager Bothers to Listen

I was at a casino buffet restaurant on the Colorado River (in NV, across the river from Bullhead City). I've been there so many times and the service is generally OK. The food is way better than the service, so we go.
On this visit in Jan 2018, we're there again. I tell the server I want to iced teas for myself. He walks away, completely ignoring my friend. Just looks at her and walks away. I said to him, "Wait, you didn't get my friend's order." He comes back to the table and pretends to care. She also orders an iced tea. "OK, he says, "One iced tea, one Coke." WTF? Really? I said, "No, I want two iced teas and she wants one." OK. "One Tea and one Coke."
Nooooo. So I get up and try to get him to listen. I told him, "We never even said any word that even sounds like Coke." Another, wonderful server asks me, from a different station, "What did you want?" I said, "Two iced teas for me, one for my friend." The dick-server says to him, "YOU serve them, then." And he did and the guy was Great.
I hated the way the first server treated us and I wanted the manger to know how the server was completely unresponsive. She asked me what the drinks order was. I said, "I asked for two iced teas and my friend wanted one." "Okay, she said, "One tea and on Coke." Are you nuts? Come on-this is a game to you?
How does this person get to be a manger?
TL:DR Hotel itself was horrific. SCALDING water in shower, no engineers respond to my call to the switchboard, no housekeeping service, pay-per-view film in room 3/4 of way thru film shows completely like those old negatives photos are. THEN, only one person in the restaurant cares about their customers.
Welcome to Laughlin, NV

The 1992 Disappearance of Jean Moore - Allegedly Vanishes from a Casino (New "Trail Went Cold" Episode)

On April 6, 1992, 59-year old Jean Moore and her 70-year old fiancee Al Henderson left their home in Apple Valley, California for a vacation in Laughlin, Nevada. The couple was set to return home on April 9, but according to Al, Jean wanted to play her lucky slot machine at the Flamingo Hilton casino one last time, as she won $600 there the day before. Al says they drove to the Flamingo Hilton at 9:30 AM, but could not find a parking spot. So Al dropped Jean off at the front entrance, gave the car to a valet, and then turned the valet’s claim ticket over to Jean. Al told Jean he would take a cab back to the Colorado Belle, the hotel they were staying at, and she could use the claim ticket to pick up the car and meet him there at around 11:45. Al tried to hail a taxi, but could not find one, so he went back into the casino to meet Jean. However, when Al was surprised to see someone else playing Jean’s lucky slot machine. When this person left, Al decided to play the machine for 30 minutes, but Jean never returned, so Al left the casino and hailed a cab to the Colorado Belle. Al played blackjack there until checkout time at 12:15, but Jean never showed up. Al then took a cab back to the Flamingo Hilton and was surprised to discover that his car was still parked there and the valet never saw Jean.
After failing to find Jean in the casino, Al reported her missing and spent the next several days in Laughlin, distributing missing persons with the words “possible amnesia” written on them and offering a $25,000 reward for information. He even paid $1,200 to charter a helicopter to fly over the desert area surrounding Laughlin, but nothing was found. For some reason, Jean had left behind her purse, jewelry and engagement ring in the hotel room before she went to the casino. Police became skeptical of Al’s story when they checked the Flamingo Hilton’s security tapes and found no sign of Jean in the surveillance footage on the morning she disappeared. The footage did show Al driving up to the front entrance and walking into the lobby, but did not show him giving the valet’s claim ticket to Jean, or playing Jean’s lucky slot machine during the 30-minute window he claimed he was there. Al believed police were looking at footage of the wrong slot machine, but casino security confirmed it was the correct one. When the case was featured on “Unsolved Mysteries” in 1995, Al changed part of his original story during his interview, now claiming he dropped Jean off at a side entrance of the casino before driving around to the front and leaving his car with the valet. Al then he said walked into the casino, found Jean and gave her the claim ticket.
Investigators also began wondering if Jean even made it to Laughlin to begin with. Aside from a waitress who said she served Jean and Al at a coffee shop on April 6, police could find no other witnesses who remembered seeing Jean in Laughlin over the next three days. Another witness also claimed she saw Al and Jean at a gas station near Apple Valley at 4:30 PM on April 8, and Jean apparently told her she was on her way to Laughlin. However, phone records show that Al made calls from Laughlin at 3:00 and 6:59 that day and since it’s a three-hour drive to Apple Valley, it seems impossible that Al could have been at the gas station at 4:30. The 6:59 phone call was made to Al’s bookkeeper, who said she spoke to Jean on the phone and that Jean was in good spirits because she won $600 earlier that day.
Al Henderson died in 2001, but no evidence was ever found to implicate him in Jean’s disappearance. It’s worth noting that Al and Jean had been together for over 20 years before she went missing, but Al didn’t propose to her until December 1991. Both of Jean’s children from a previous relationship were interviewed on “Unsolved Mysteries”. They said they never liked Al and claimed he had a habit of putting their mother down in front of other people. However, there’s no other indication that this was an abusive, unhappy relationship. Al was also a millionaire and had nothing to gain financially from Jean’s death, so if he killed her, the motive is unknown.
I analyze this case in the latest episode of my true crime podcast, “The Trail Went Cold”: http://trailwentcold.com/2017/02/01/the-trail-went-cold-episode-26-jean-moore/
