article from The Albuquerque Journal:
An abominable monster covered with hair and with a blank face was reported roaming the South Valley Thursday night "crying like a baby."
City police were skeptical but early skepticism by the Bernalillo County Sheriff's department faded with increasing calls "about the monster." Compounding the confusion which arose after the Clifford McGuire family of 4l5 Wilshire SW reported a monster was spooking their children were reports of an explosion on San Mateo NE and of a black object attacking a woman in the 7700 block of Don NE. Police could find neither the source of the explosion nor the "thing" which attacked the woman. But members of the McGuire family almost make believers out of Deputy Sheriff Dale Knable and Art Fusco. "I'm not going to speculate as to what it is - but there is something out there," Knable said, adding all members of the McGuire family seemed pretty rational.
On the prowl for
McGuire's children are afraid to sleep in their back bedroom and the McGuire's 18 years old son said he went out to investigate one night and was stuck by the monster. The youth passed out and awoke to find only fork-like marks, similar to footprints on the ground, deputies were told.
Every time the monster comes around, the McGuires said their radio quits playing and every time the older son hears it "cry like a baby" his chest begins hurting all over again where the monster reportedly hit him.
