The Green-Clawed Beast

The Green Clawed Beast was an unseen underwater cryptid that is rumored to live in the Ohio River near Evansville, Indiana. 

On August 21, 1955, an unseen “claw-like hand” grabbed Mrs. Darwin Johnson and pulled her beneath the water. Her friend, Mrs. Chris Lamble, lay sunning herself on a nearby raft 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. She kicked free and pulled herself onto the raft with the screaming Lamble. 


The creature was never seen, but it appeared to have clawed hands. In an interview, Mrs. Johnson also described the creature's palm as feeling "furry".


On August 21, 1955, in Godtown, Indiana, Mrs. Darwin Johnson had a terrifying encounter with what she claimed was a hideous creature beneath the surface of the Ohio River near Evansville, Indiana. While enjoying a leisurely swim only 4.5 meters from shore with a friend Johnson was suddenly clutched around the knee by a large, hairy, claw-like hand and started t drag her underwater. She managed to disengage herself, only to be grabbed again from behind. Mrs. Johnson struggled to disengage herself and head for safety. Mrs. Lamble could only stare in horror as her distraught friend was yanked beneath the surface of the river. 

Mrs. Lamble’s shrieks echoed down the shoreline as she helplessly watched her friend being pulled below the river’s murky surface once again. After resurfacing a second time, Mrs. Johnson lunged for Mrs. Lamble’s inner tube and the splash of her impact apparently scared her beastly assailant away.Once back on shore, Mrs. Johnson was treated for multiple contusions on her leg, at which point it was discovered that she bore a green, palm-print shaped stain. The stain could not be removed for several days.

As if that experience wasn’t strange enough, a few days later, Mrs. Johnson and her husband were visited at their home by a person claiming to be a Air Force colonel who questioned her extensively about the incident in the river. Before leaving, he warned the couple not to talk about the matter.
