On a cool, fall evening in November, 1966, five men lead by head gravedigger Kenneth Duncan set to work in a cemetery just outside of Clendenin, West Virginia. The grave that they were digging was to be that of Duncan's recently deceased brother-in-law. What happened next terrified the men and also kick-started one of the most enduring mysteries in all of cryptozoology.
A creature, described as a brown, manlike figure ascended from a nearby grove of trees and dive-bombed the bewildered group, flying directly over their heads. They had a very good view of the creature. It was 'less than a hoot and a holler away' to borrow from the local vernacular. It stayed within view for a full minute, before disappearing just as suddenly as it had appeared. This was the first sighting of the creature that the press would soon dub 'Mothman'.
