ASBURY PARK, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – New Jersey has a creepier, scarier inhabitant than any of the Jersey Shore kids combined.

The Jersey Devil is “the oldest living monster in America,” according to Kathy Kelly of Paranormal Books & Curiosities in Asbury Park, New Jersey, which is currently running a historical exhibit on the freaky cryptid called The Jersey Devil Expedition of 1819.

The beast is said to be the unwanted child of a former Jersey resident who made a pact with Satan to give him her baby in exchange for regaining her youth.

Her newborn was then turned into a winged, horned demon that has supposedly terrorized the area for hundreds of years.

Many New Jersey residents claim they’ve actually seen the Jersey Devil, while others believe the monster is just a myth.

Whatever the case, Kelly is glad to spotlight interesting local history again after the damage that the Jersey Shore series has caused to the state’s image.
