Updated on February 27, 2017

Old Wooden Crate

This wooden crate was barely 4 feet long and it looked pretty old to say the least. The address said it was shipped from Ireland.

Mail Delivery

The O' Neil family had not expected any special package, just ordinary mail. When Steve O' Neil opened the front door and had to sign for a large, old wooden crate he knew he did not order anything so he assumed it was for his wife or one of his two sons who had ordered something online. It was nailed shut and extremely heavy. Mr. O' Neil called for help and 12 year old Jon showed up. The duo toted the crate to the basement. Steve looked at the shipping label and freaked out when he saw that the address of origination came from Ireland. In his heart of hearts, he was positive nothing from the British Isles should be arriving at the house.

Ireland?

What's in the Box?

Steve called for his wife, Judi, to open the crate. Jon ran outside to get his brother Tony, who was outside shooting basketball. The family of four gathered in the living room and Steve O' Neil proceeded to pry the large nails out of the crate with his claw hammer. The Father stepped back and let his boys do the honors by letting them remove the lid.

Once the top was put aside, dark smoke rose from the crate along with a horrid smell. A slimy green creature emerged with an evil grin on his bump filled face.

Run!

Green hands with huge claws started to emerge from the wooden box and the family took off running. This green and slimy, 3 foot tall freak had canine teeth that were 2 inches long and claws that were razor sharp. Everyone was yelling and running as the green little man began to laugh with all his might. No special powers accompany this little monster....Only evil intentions. His hands were virtual razors and he had 2 long knives that hung from his belt.

Let the Pain Begin

The family split into 2 groups. Steve took Jon and Judi took the older son, Tony with her. They ran down to the basement and hid. Steve and Jon took off the other way and ran upstairs into Steve and Judi's bedroom.

The Leprechaun ran into the basement to get mommy and son. As green man reached for Tony, Judi swung with a wooden baseball bat and it cracked the monster on the back of the head and it fell out. Mom and boy tried to exit the basement but green man was awake again and grabbed Judi by the ankle. Tony got away but the green freak pulled a long knife from his belt and used it on Judi. Tony got to his room and grabbed his cell phone and called the police. After which he climbed out his bedroom window and fled across the street to his best friends house.

Green Leprechaun Man ran upstairs and pulled his knife from his sheath and ran into a bathroom and did not see anybody. As he turned around to leave, Steve appeared and closed the bathroom door, holding it closed shut with Green Monster inside. Steve shouted, "Jon go next door, now!" Steve struggled to hold the door shut as Jon ran by and down the stairs to leave. Just as his son exited the front door of the home, a sharp blade protruded through the door and struck Steve in the stomach. As Steve fell to the ground the green monster opened the door and grabbed his knife from the door that the knife stabbed through. Then he put his knife away on his hip and then sat on Steve's chest. With 10 sharp and thick claws expanded, the Leprechaun grabbed Steve by the head and scalped him, leaving him bald with no hair or skin on top.

The Leprechaun got the parents but he knew two family members remained. He could not find them so he went to the basement and disconnected the gas line and proceeded to burn the residence to the ground.

Misconceptions about Leprechauns

Lots of people associate Leprechauns with St. Patrick's Day, Shamrocks, the Irish and 4 leaf clover.

Brookwood Fights Back

As the house caught fire and the green monster ran off towards the back alley the neighbors saw him. Local police arrived and several volunteers formed a posse to catch the freak, dead or alive. Tony and Jon stayed behind with several other children and mothers who gathered at two side by side homes. Four officers and 6 local residents ran in the alley and blocked each route out, effectively forcing the green monster to his fate.

Un-Lucky Charm

Finally, an officer takes a restroom break in the wooded area at the end of the neighborhood and he feels a knife on his jugular. Green Monster makes the police officer hand cuff himself to a tree limb that was slightly above his head. What happens next is very strange. Green Leprechaun monster took the pistol out of the cop's sheath and began to dance and shoot the gun all over the place but mainly up in the air until it was empty and he then tosses the gun to the side and ran off.

Set Traps

Leprechaun Monster left the officer alive and hanging by his cuffs from a tree in order to draw another policeman to the scene. Sure enough, the detained cop called for help and his partner came to the scene. As he was about to take the cuffs off of his partner the green monster jumped down from a tree limb with a butcher knife in his hand. The knife landed square in the officer's forehead, ending his life. The green monster scatted off into the darkness and the other two policemen called for backup and for an ambulance.

Suffocate

The mean, green leprechaun arrived to America in an old wooden crate. And after a brief scare, he is now on his way back to Ireland in a steel box with four keypad coded locks in place.

Put Him in the Steel Box!

Jon concocted an idea on how to catch the green thing and he told Tony. The boys ran home to the basement of their home where a huge, steel storage container was. Jon put a device in the box with his voice on it. Hours went by and just as the kids thought the monster returned for them. Once the monster got inside through a back window he could here one of the kids talking in the basement so he ran downstairs. The green guy climbed into the steel box where the noise was coming from and saw a tape recorder. The green monster started to climb out of the container and all of a sudden it slammed shut. Tony closed he Leprechaun inside and held it shut while Jon locked everything in place.

The two guys were gonna mail the steel box back to Ireland with the suffocating lil freak inside but they were low on money for shipping. Finally, they decided to hook the box on the back of Tony's ATV and they dragged the box almost a half mile, off into the woods where a swampy pond awaited. The boys unhooked the container and slid it into the swamp and drove off.
