While Terlingua is the TX epicenter of weird, only exceeded by the larger weirdville of Austin, this "local" (Ty Mitchell) was an actor. While he apparently owns a bar in Marfa, his connection to the events in Terlingua was solely as a hired hand to lend "atmosphere" to the clickbait Nat Geo drivel.Archie Gill, the owner of Terlingua Auto Service, is an authentic Terlingua resident and he would have been a superior choice for the role. Beyond the actual homicide, apparent incompetent prosecution and unbelievable verdict, the the Nat Geo production was low quality soap opera. NGS used to be a respected journalistic organization. Not anymore.

contains a description of how the entire countryside for miles around lit up at night as bright as day for no reason that he could imagine
It's been a long time since I read J. O. Langford's "Big Bend, a Homesteader's Story" about how he developed the Hot Springs resort before WWI, but it contains a description of how the entire countryside for miles around lit up at night as bright as day for no reason that he could imagine. If I remember correctly he said this lasted for hours and may have happened on several successive nights. I have never heard of anyone else witnessing this although there were other scattered settlers around at that time.
I'd just a soon people didn't do shows about this kind of thing in the Big Bend area. Especially since I own property near Big Bend in Brewster county.
What ever go elsewhere like Roswell if you want goofy stuff
