The Creepy Cajun Legend Of ‘The Letiche’ Alligator Children
The more you look, the more creepy Cajun legends you'll find lurking throughout Louisiana folklore. Have you ever heard of "The Letiche" swamp children who haunt the swamps of South Louisiana?
"The Letiche" is described as "the soul of an illegitimate unbaptized infant or a human child raised by alligators. The Letiche is said to lurk in the bayous and upset boats and attack travelers" according to wikipedia.com.
Some sources say the Letiche swim around the bayous of Terrebonne Parish.
The Cajun legend describes a Letiche as a spirit, and the Native American legend says the Letiche are actual half-human, half-gator human children raised by alligators. Oh, and they want to eat you.
Either way, I don't believe I want any part of these bad lil hungry children.
