|Green Clawed Beast|
The Green Clawed Beast was an unseen cryptid that is rumored to live in the Ohio River near Evansville, Indiana. On August 14, 1955, an unseen “claw-like hand” grabbed Naomi Johnson and pulled her beneath the water. Her friend, Louise was wading in an inner tube nearby when she heard her friend yelp, and turned to see her pulled under. The hand released Johnson who swam to the surface only to be grabbed, and pulled under again and again. The attack only ended when Louise moved her inner tube directly over the monster. A short time later, a man claiming to be an air force colonel came to the Johnson's house and instructed Naomi to never speak of the incident. There have been no reported sightings since.
