This article will be covering the legend of The Green Man that originates from the lonely roads of Pennsylvania. Also known as ‘Charlie No Face’ – is this legendary freak based on fact, or fiction?
Let’s take a closer look…
A Typical Urban Legend?
It’s a dark and rainy night as a couple drive up to darkened tunnel – a location that is often mentioned in a local legend that is linked to man/ghoul that has terrorized this part of town for decades.
The couple have only been dating for a couple of weeks, but he thinks his luck is in, this particular night.
He has heard of this location many times before – and his mates have suggested that he takes his date here, to scare her with the local legend and setting.
When the car enters the tunnel, his date turns to him and laughs – she is also local and she knows what he is up to…she has also heard the legend of The Green Man.
They drive deep into the tunnel then stop – they sit in the darkness waiting for the legend to reveal itself but neither is too confident that it will…
Surely this is nothing more than a High School legend – designed to get young ladies ‘in the mood’?
Suddenly the guy realizes that the legend mentions a calling – so he beeps his horn twice…
The call is answered.
A strange green light begins to form in the middle of the tunnel…and slowly moves towards the car. As the light get’s closer, it takes on the form of a man.
The young couple are frozen in fear, as The Green Man’s disfigured face peers in at them.
He has a hole in his cheek, exposing his teeth, and there is a deep hole where his nose should be. His eyes twitch…but they are nothing more than sealed eyelids.
Charlie No Face
The young lovers have encountered Charlie No Face, or The Green Man.
Local legend suggests that he was once an employee of the power company and was electrocuted by a downed power line.
This accident managed to hideously deform the poor soul…leaving him to hide away in the dark tunnel.
As he reaches out to touch the car, they speed off back into the night.
They are both fully aware that the legend suggests that Charlie No Face gets his power, and his green glow, from the cars he manages to trap within the tunnel.
Many paranormal experts believe that this urban legend is actually based on fact – an incident that happened to an eight-year-old boy named Raymond Robinson.
Raymond tragically fell into electrical lines on the Morado Bridge near Beaver Falls, and ended up with with hideous injuries to his face and body.
Due to such horrifying injuries he shied away from the public.
Raymond was constantly warned by locals not to venture out in the daytime, as he frightened the local children.
He resorted to taking long walks at nighttime, and soon became a bit of a celebrity.
Groups of teenagers would drive along the roads at night in search of him. More often than not, Raymond would stop to talk to them, and they would have their picture taken with him!
