First documented by journalist Brian Bethel in 1996, black eyed kids are children who’s presence seems a bit off — they dress in out of fashion clothing, they’re out later at night than children should be, they seem desperate to be invited into your home — and their eyes are entirely black. Now sightings of them are increasing in the UK.
As the Huffington Post reports, paranormal investigator Lee Brickley has now received nine reports in the past two years of BEK sightings, all of which seem to follow a similar vein.
On Saturday 13th September, my wife and I were walking though Cannock Chase near to Stile Cop with our dog. Once we had entered the woodland, and the road was no longer visible, we started to hear the giggling noise of a little girl.
To our amazement, a child, no taller than one meter in height appeared as if out of nowhere further up the path in front of us. We stopped dead in our tracks after noticing her eyes had no colour. Her head was tilted to the side in much the same way it would appear if she had been hung.
She stared at us for around five minutes before running away into a densely grouped area of trees. My wife wanted to follow her, but I was having none of it.
Brickley is of the opinion the black eyed kids are demonic in nature.
