Prepare yourself for what may be the creepiest thing you've seen all day, year…or ever.
Someone in Gastonia, North Carolina, is going around town freaking just about everyone within an arm's distance out. Why? Who knows! How? Let us explain…
Multiple citizens have taken to social media to alert their neighbors about a mysterious figure, dressed in a cloak, who appears to be leaving chunks of raw meat at multiple playgrounds around town.
Seriously, if that doesn't sound like the set-up to a horror movie, we don't know what does!
Lance Calhoun, a director of operations for a local real estate firm, tweeted the following message to those who have becoming increasingly concerned over the haunting figure:
"We don't know if it's one of our residents with an interesting way of presenting themselves, or if it's a trespasser."
Whoever this person is, they're horrifying the living daylights out of everyone in town (and anyone who's seen the image, for that matter).
And we don't know what's worse…the cloak, the raw meat, the playground?! Ugh, it's all so, so bad and so, so terrifying.
Police spokesperson Donna Lasher told local outlets that their currently investigated the images and are speaking to the manager of the apartment complex that the photos appear to be taken near.
"It could have come from anywhere," she explained. "We don't know if this is some bogus prank someone is playing."
For the love of all things sacred, let's hope this mystery comes to an end soon and the person behind the cloak steps forward to alert all that this was just a harmless (relatively, at least) prank gone viral.
