The Legend of New Orleans own "El Cupacabra" Grunch Road Revealed

Grunch Road do creatures stalk it still read here and find out!

Was it when people started disappearing down Grunch Road that everyone finally took notice.

 

THIS IS AN ONGOING HAUNTED NEW ORLEANS PARANORMAL CRYPTO-ZOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION.

IF YOU HAVE ANY GRUNCH STORIES OR GRUNCH PHOTOS, OR INFORMATION ON GRUNCH ROAD PLEASE GET IN TOUCH!

 

by M. Mathers photos by Robert Clarkson

Some people claim it was in Chalmette, Louisiana, some other people claim it was in Gentilly, but the REAL Grunch Road was located in a remote part of Eastern New Orleans near the community of Little Woods.

In those days, when New Orleans was still developing it's Eastern subdivisions, most people only encountered Grunch Road by accident. A dead end of scant shells and sand, sheltered by overgrown woods and water oaks it led off into the ferny darkness off the major two-lane highway of Haynes Boulevard.

 

Grunch Road was located in a Eastern New Orleans suburb. Photographer Robert Clarkson and friend went there to get some photos for this article. You will find here below. What they caught on film. And their Story.

www.hauntedneworleanstours.com presents this as an excluxse story. We only present to you what was presented to us in Photos and his statements reguarding such. www.hauntedneworleanstours.com does not confirm or deny the authenticity of this story or photos.


Grass and weeds now grow where nobody dares to go. Grunch Road still exisit in tales told at haunted slumber parties. But is it just another New Orleans ghost story?

 

 

Most times people driving down Haynes Boulevard, families on their way to weekends in fishing camps or fun-filled days at Lincoln Beach Amusement Park, never even noticed where Grunch Road broke away from the main road. But it's location was well known to high school students in search of a secluded place to make out, or to middle schoolers out on a Halloween dare, or, most notably, to the lonely victim of a random flat tire, forced to walk the pitch blackness in search of an open service station.

 


I am not sure what they are. But we saw them looking at us on Grunch Road. Are they real Grunches? Some people use to say they were weird lizard part goat animals. Their story similar to El Chupacabras! This is what we saw. Yes they were real we saw two. they watched us and they ran on two legs into the high brush!

 

 

People lived back there, they said, and they were a strange lot. Dwarves and albinos were forced to live back there in ramshackle trailers. This made sense, unfortunately, to New Orleans suburbanites, the vanguard of the first "white flight" out of the city. It made sense to group those "unfortunates" together off the main road and out of sight.

But it didn't make sense to anyone that dwarves and albinos would be intermarrying back in those woods. That didn't make sense at all and couldn't have been right in the eyes of God.

 


They would not let us get close to them. The Grunches !?! They seemed almost monkey like, yet almost reptilian. But the face was definitely goat like and human.

So the stories grew and became local legend and the road became a kind of side show attraction. High school students would show their bravery to each other by simply turning off the main road and shining high beams down the brushy darkness of Grunch Road. Sometimes, they'd drive a little further and scare each other silly, and back out screaming with laughter. Sometimes, though, the experiences had more of a ring of truth than was comfortable.

One student and his girlfriend, thinking the little wooded road a good place to get cozy for a night out, pulled into Grunch Road out of sight of the main highway and turned off their headlights. With only the glow of the radio providing light, the two teens went quickly to work on their own particular "night moves." It wasn't long, however, before their passion was interrupted by terror. It began placidly enough, just a feeling of unease with the encompassing darkness and the incessant chirping of the crickets and night creatures. Soon it was the oppressive silence and the bad 70's rock song. Then it was a shriek and the teens sat bolt upright in the back seat of their car.

 


One Grunch croutched down in the tall weeds and grass watching us then ie ran very fast on two legs to get away from us. Notice in the close up the depression it makes in the tall weeds. That is it's face to the left and shoulder to the right.

 

 

From outside all they could hear was the rustling of brush and the swaying of bushes in the pitch blackness around them. Soon they were alarmed by the sounds of grunting and snuffling. A guttural call, like one animal calling to another, was all it took to propel the teens over the front seat; they started the car and it seemed just in time, as out of the woods a white arm lurched for the passenger side door. Screaming into reverse, the car lunged out of the woods, and when they finally reached the safety of the teenaged girl's home she was in shock. All she could say was "Red!" --- over and over. Red. The color of albino eyes.

But it was when people started disappearing down Grunch Road that everyone finally took notice.

It started with a goat. A goat was spotted wandering around the spot where Grunch Road intersected with Haynes Boulevard. A well meaning motorist would slow down, not wanting to kill the animal; invariably the motorist would get out of the car to see if there was a way to secure the animal or to lead it off the road. And invariably the goat would lead them away from the highway and into the darkness of Grunch Road.

A woman who lived near the Lake Pontchartrain pumping station reported her husband missing on a Monday night from a weekend fishing trip in Little Woods. The New Orleans Police were summoned to take all the information they could and a squad car was dispatched to patrol Haynes Boulevard in search of some sign of the missing man.

What they found was his abandoned car, trailer and boat still attached, driver's side door still open, at the entrance to the infamous Grunch Road. There was no sign of the man and no sign of a goat, but his haul of trout and sheephead were rank in a cooler in the boat. It is not known how this bizarre situation would have affected a Titlemax loan on the man's car. Since the vehicle was recovered but the driver was lost, it was probably the wife's responsibility to pay off any liens or Titlemax loans on her husband's vehicle.

He was the first to disappear but not the last and finally police gave in to the demands of local residents and took a ride down Grunch Road. What they found was never documented in any police report but first hand reports from the officers themselves confirmed at least the worst fears about who was living back there: red eyes peered from the trailer windows and dwarves huddled around trash fires looked up warily. But beyond the unusual occupants, nothing out of the ordinary was found.

But this didn't keep the legend from growing, and the sightings of the goats along Haynes Boulevard continued well into the 1980's when progress and expansion tore the green woods down and drove out the remnant society that had grown in secret at the dead end of Grunch Road.

To this day, however, local residents warn: If you see a stray goat waiting on the side of the road in old Little Woods, don't stop. Whatever you do. Don't stop.

These photos on this page were taken by Robert Clarkson. And are his commentary on them. These Grunch Photos are his sole property Robert Clarkson C 2004. This is his story in photos of what he caught on film on his expidition to Grunch Road.
