Mothman's Squeaking Sounds

In 1966, the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia was the site of lots of strange activity. During that year and throughout the next, there were sightings of UFOs, odd occurrences, encounters with Men in Black, and of course, the Mothman.

The first publicized sighting of the Mothman occurred on November 15, 1966. Two young couples, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, were joyriding in the TNT Area outside of Point Pleasant that had served as an ammunitions site during the Second World War. They also happened to spot the Mothman. The creature followed them back to the town, and as it was chasing the car, the witnesses said it made a sound "like the squeak of a huge mouse."

While at the Mothman Festival in September, I was talking with Colin Schneider (another researcher of the unknown) about the creature, and he mentioned that he thought the mention of Mothman's "squeaking" was similar to a banshee. Below is why that could be important.

Wikipedia says that "A banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology who heralds the death of a family member, usually by shrieking or keening" (Emphasis mine).

Now, anyone who knows about the Mothman saga knows that it apparently ended after the Silver Bridge collapsed on December 15, 1967. The collapse of the bridge, spanning the Ohio River, killed 46 people.

Could Mothman possibly be connected to a banshee in some way? With the strange squeaking sound, weird electronic occurrences, other odd sightings, and death in Point Pleasant, I think this should be looked into more.
