That night Batman was wandering the Heights
One insanely creepy night back June 18, 1953, several Heights residents claimed to have seen a “very tall man or manlike figure” with mysterious bat-like wings appear before he/it vanished into thin air. The mystery remains unsolved to this day, but we’re thinking it had something to do with LSD. Just a guess.
The face that haunts University of Texas Medical Branch’s Ewing Hall to this day
Year: It’s still happening!!
Many claim to have seen the face of a man, thought to the the ghost of former land owner, etched into the Ewing Building on UTMB campus. The legend goes that the man haunts the place because his family promised not to sell the land after his death. His creepy face was originally seen on the 4th floor, but when the university had the wall sandblasted after rumors ran amuck, the face moved to the the 3rd floor before eventually moving around a few more times. People still claim to see the face today.

Brooke Viggiano is a Houston writer who is really hoping to see that Heights Batman and/or the ghost of Boris Yeltsin at Randalls. Let her know if you’ve seen either @BrookeViggiano.
