The infamous Melonheads are bizarre humanoid creatures that are said to live near Lake County, Ohio. They are strongly associated with Wisner Road, near Chardon, Ohio. They are also often sighted on King Memorial Road, especially in or near the nearby King Memorial/Larned Cemetery.
The Melonheads are generally described as resembling human children or teenagers, but feral in behavior. Their heads are large and swollen, possibly due to hydrocephalia. They are often seen wearing ragged and dirty clothes, if any. Occasionally, Melonheads are described as having no ears, only holes where the ears would normally be on a human.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- Feral children
- Inbred mutants
