Michael Rowley and his son Shane moved to their North Port Florida in April after Michael Rowley retired. “Well, I’m retired and I thought this was where you’re supposed to go,” Michael said. “The only bad part is the aliens around here.”
Both Michael Rowley and Shane have seen aliens in the woods near their home. Shane has seen several different creatures and Michael was able to make a plaster cast of a footprint found near the home. The footprint would be of a creature with a cloven hoof, now being called The North Port Devil.
MUFON sent out investigator Morgan Beall to take a look, collect the reports, and make observations. His report is available online.
MUFON’s initial field investigation
Taken from the report.
Shane Rowley is the primary witness. Shane Rowley on or around the 10th of April 2009 after his father first experience witnessed what he described as two “Aliens” entities outside his bedroom window. He stated the two entities were two different types based off his observations. The closest entity to the window was described as a tall (approx 9 feet) pale Gray with large eyes. He further described it as having smooth skin with very long arms of which the wrist reached well below its waist to the base of the windowsill. The other entity was described as a scaly reptile like humanoid with a rounded heart shaped head. He explained it was crouched sideways on the trunk of the palm tree in the background. He added it bobbed its head side to side. This event lasted approximately 5 minutes until the witness found himself staring at the window in the same position the next morning (missing time). Shane stated he did not remember falling asleep.
In addition to the plaster cast of the foot print, the Rowley’s have a video tape that they claim shows a reflection of an eye.
Add to all this, the Rowley’s own website www.northportdevil.com, telling their side of the story in a solid block paragraph of text.
It seems he has invited people to sit on his back porch and then record their observations. These witnesses reported red eyes, “sounds like wings beating air, loud crashes and stomping”, and something that flew overheard that “was 20 ft tall and a long heavy tail”.
The site also clears up what happened to the MUFON investigator. It sees the Rowley’s were unhappy with how the investigation was progressing and being handled.
