The legend of end-of-year motivation. It's probably just a myth.
Posted 5/13/16
Besides my house, there's a small public park from the neighborhood. Last year, a lady sadly killed herself there in the middle of the day. She shot herself, and the weird thing is that no one, but honestly no one heard the shooting at all. She was seen on the ground but people thought she was just getting herself tanned, because she was well postured until one of the guys from maintenance went up to her, and noticed her dead body.
Anyway, after months, our dog is always barking in the middle of the night, and it is said from my brothers or uncles that sometimes when they are drinking by our parking space, they can hear a lady crying right by the small stream that's behind our house & park.

We got the Lafayette Witch.

An unfounded myth about a woman supposedly hung a town over who apparently haunts one of it's cemetery.

We have "The White Woman", the ghost of a woman in white that walks across the beaches promenade at night time. There have been multiple sightings of her, even my mother saw her, and there's ghost tours that come around here too.

I don't believe there is anything that stands out locally to my knowledge.

Every city I've ever lived in has had a goat man. There's a heck of a lot of goat men out there. You'd think we'd capture one by now but alas much like Big Foot the goat men are quite elusive.

I really can't think of any Legends for where I live. I'm sure we have plenty of them but I just can't think of them. There has been plenty of sightings of what people describe as a panther though. One night I saw something large, dark and extremely fast in the field behind my house. I don't know what it was but it ran super fast and was gone before I could blink and it's a pretty long pasture. It covered the distance in seconds and really didn't make any noise doing so. There's been two police officers that have seen it, one who drew his weapon and got a good look at it before it went into the woods. The other one just saw it in passing and they even brought some experts out to try and figure out if we do have a large cat on the loose but they weren't able to find anything. It could be a mountain lion. When it's starting to get dark outside then everything appears darker so it may not be a panther. Maybe it's just a super large and fast dog? Or maybe some idiot owned an exotic pet he/she shouldn't have. I do know Texas has it's share of exotic pet owners. I don't know what it is but there's been a lot of sightings over the past 3 or 4 years.

Just south of my home town, there's the 'Melonheads'. Feral children with extra large heads that attack people on the lonely dirt roads.

We have the legend of Rush Limbaugh
Rumor has it that he feasts on the innards of Bernie Sanders at night on his radio shows, and from the excess intake of bullshit, it leads to him talking completely out of his ass.

There's actually a living legend in my town. Crazy Agnus. She lives by herself, walks around town and shouts and throws things at people. People say she thinks demons or something like that killed her husband. There's some Indian kind of stuff in it too.

Haha, I know that one, everyone does around here. Apparently my hometown was listed as one of the locations, but the more common one that a majority of people think of in my region is about a 20-30 minute drive north. I remember friends daring each other to drive down the infamous road late at night back in high school, although no sightings.
