The Mothman by Holley Bakich

Many people saw this strange creature in the Charleston and Point Pleasant areas of West Virginia between November 1966 and December 1967. Sporadic reports occurred before and after those dates, with the most recent sighting in 2005. The Mothman was seen often until the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15, 1967, when 46 people were killed. Some feel the Mothman was involved in the disaster in some way, while other say he was just a warning or omen of the calamity.
