Overview

It stood about eight feet tall. It had bat-like wings. A bright light beamed from its forehead through the air, and it was seemingly impervious to bullets. They called it the Van Meter Visitor. For five days, it terrorized the town of Van Meter – and was never seen again. Midwest historian and paranormal researcher Chad Lewis will open up the archives to provide stories and anecdotes from those who claimed to have seen the creature first-hand. Was it an unknown bird, a hoax, or something else? Hear what Lewis has to say and come up with your own theory at this mysterious program!
