Freddie May: February 7, 1941-June 5, 2023.
It is with deep regret we announce that Freddie Glen May recently passed away on June 5, 2023 at the age of 82. Mr. May was born on February 7, 1941 and lived the majority of his life in Gassaway, West Virginia.
Freddie, along with his mother and several others, was one of the primary witnesses involved in the "Flatwoods Monster" encounter of September 12, 1952. For many years Freddie worked extensively with researcher Frank Feschino, Jr. and spent countless hours reviewing the case with him. Additionally, Mr. May was also videotaped at the site of the encounter on the Fisher Farm during an interview with Feschino.
Mr. May helped substantiate the truth concerning the infamous Flatwoods incident. This substantiation included the drawing he penciled (below) for investigators in 1952, along with Mr. Feschino, finally giving us the true rendition of the so-called "monster." Freddie May and his Mom, Kathleen May also made several appearances with Feschino at various events and book signings over the years.
Freddie will be remembered by the many that knew him as well as all of those who admired him for telling the real "Flatwoods Monster" incident, story. A brave and honest man, he will be missed. His story, a history he helped reveal, shall not die with him.
