JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE CIRCUS MOVED OUT OF TOWN…
The killer clown craze (or as I like to call the red “nose” scare) has reared its horrifically grease painted head again in America. Throughout history there have been clowns scarring children (as we saw in IT) along with terrifying tales of clowns in parks and playgrounds (Like we also saw in IT). There is even sightings of a clown in Wisconsin terrorizing the streets at night with black balloons slung over his shoulder his costumes shoulders. Is this story just another hoax or something all too real?
The NY Daily News has put out a story that sounds like it just might be the real thing. Residents of the Fleetwood Manor Apartments in South Carolina are being advised to keep their children indoors as a man dressed as a clown has been spotted trying lure them into the nearby woods. The account comes from 30 children, who live in the complex, stated that he tried to take them into the woods and reported hearing the clown “whisper and make strange noises” off in the distance. One resident stated, “I thought my child was seeing things,” she said. “And then the next day I had about 30 kids come up to me and say, ‘Did you see the clown in the woods?”
The apartment complex even issued a letter to the families confirming that their children’s safety is top priority (as seen above) along with the local Police Department investigating the multiple incidents.
So, is this just another “sighting” or a nightmare brought to life?
