(PCM) No, this is not some elaborate marketing ploy for the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s “IT”, but rather a real life horror story involving a clown (or group of clowns) who is allegedly attempting to lure young children into the woods in South Carolina. Authorities in the area are warning parents to stand guard and be extra mindful of their children.
There have been multiple reports from the residents of the Fleetwood Manor Apartments in Greenville, S.C. saying they received letters from apartment management urging them to follow the 10pm curfew and not allow their children to walk alone in the area, especially at night. The sheriff’s department in the area is aware of the situation and have been making more frequent patrols around the area.
One resident claims that her son noticed the clown near the apartment complex’s basketball court. She at first thought he was seeing things, but then about thirty other children she spoke with the next day all said “Did you see the clown in the woods?”. At that point the resident knew there was some cause for concern, as other residents reported seeing the clown attempting to lure/take children into the woods.
This is truly the stuff of nightmares! Thus far the authorities in the area have no suspects or lead, but will continue to investigate the situation.
