    Great thread.

    I usually try to forget such run-ins. Maybe I can post on the lighter side.

    I was a high school freshman running a paper route. Saving up for a car. That was kool. Except this was a rough neighborhood. We had everything. Bikers. PTSD vets from Vietnam. Black militants. Asians, mostly women, seemed like they got beat up a lot. And I was the paperboy . . . just great. I did what I could to not stand out as an obvious target. Goodness knows, I didn't have any money on me, just papers. Sunday morning was early, the other days were afternoons and I always tried to finish and be back before dark.

    Well, a school buddy was walking with me one afternoon. He was an upstanding fella. Maybe too upstanding for this neighborhood. He would stand on principle to the point of attracting attention. So we're walking along, me with my bag of newspapers all bound up an flopping at my side. Probably talking about one of the cute school chicks when this fella walks up facing us. Big guy. Blank stare. Trenchcoat. It wasn't cold.

    He says "Give me a paper".

    I don't even break stride. I whip out a $0.15 cent, freshly rolled up and twine bound evening addition paper and put it right in his hand as I pass by. Don't even look back. Didn't say a word.

    Well, that didn't sit well with my high school buddy. He seemed irked that this dark figure of a man didn't pay his 15 cents. I said "forget it" but he audibly goes on about how this guy owes me 15 cents. We stop. I look at my friend and tell him he can have the 15 cents if he wants it. Just go get it.

    Well, our dark natured trenchcoat buddy was maybe 15 feet behind us and had heard us. He had stopped and half turned, looking over his shoulder at us he proceeded to produce a bowie knife and cut the twine on the newspaper.

    That was enough for my buddy. We kept walking away. I finished my deliveries. Never saw the trenchcoat dude again.

    Huh. I guess this post wasn't as "light" as I had hoped.

    March 2004 about midnight, seen the Columbus, Ohio, "Highway Sniper's" big crazy eyes staring down at me, as I drove northbound under the over pass walkway he was up on...
    On Rt. 71, between ext. 116 Morse Rd & ext 117 E. Dublin Grainville Rd, Rt 161...
    Thought sure this A-Hole was going to throw something down on my vehicle.
    Watching him real close as I approached at 60 mph,
    The walkway was fenced off high.
    Got a real good look at his face...
    Wild eyed look, like he was drunk & high and wanted to do something crazy to me...seen his face on the front page of newspapers days later, arrested in Las Vegas, after having shot 24 cars in Columbus, Oh. Over a period of months.

    In 2007, I was finishing up my last semester of college. It was early April when me and a buddy decided to take a Sunday trip to the public shooting range. We had been there for a while when a couple Asian kids set up on the table next to us. The one kid had a brand new AK-47 he was shooting. I know it was brand new because he had not bothered to remove the cosmoline from it. It was obvious real quick they had no idea what they were doing. My buddy started a conversation with them and before we knew it, we were teaching them how to shoot. I gave the kid who owned the gun detailed instructions on how to remove the cosmoline and clean the gun. My buddy showed him how to bump fire.

    A couple weeks later, I was glued to the television in disbelief. I'll never forget the feeling I had when I first heard that an Asian kid had killed 32 people at my school. I thought long and hard about calling the authorities and telling them what I knew.

    Then a few hours later they showed a picture of the killer and it wasn't either one of the kids we met at the range. It turns out, several people did report the Asian kid with the AK-47 because he had been posting pictures of his gun on facebook. However, he didn't have anything to do with the shooting.

    I graduated from Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007. I never went back after that day. It just didn't feel right...

    I have no personal stories of serial killers, molesters, or ghouls, but I do have something creepy to share.

    About 2 years ago, my in-laws bought a new house and were cleaning out their old attic. They brought a few boxes of my wife’s things they found while cleaning out their attic over to our house. In one of the boxes, we found three very creepy old pictures. There are small B/W photos, apparently related to the Holocaust.

    The first picture appears to be a dirt yard with a wooden gallows and a small wooden stool as the focal point. No bodies. The main beam of the gallows has half a dozen metal hooks along its span. The yard is surrounded by what appears to be an 8 foot wooden fence and a dog house in the corner of the fenced yard.

    The second picture shows a bunch of wooden coffins lined up at a wood’s edge and dozens of clothed bodies lying next to each other in the woods nearby. The bodies appear “plump”, not malnourished.

    The third, most disturbing picture shows an open-top wheeled trailer or cart filled with dozens of emaciated naked bodies stacked up like cord wood. The side wall of the cart is swung down to show the bodies.

    My in-laws don’t know where the pictures came from and I asked to keep them. I scanned them and sent the scans to the National Holocaust Museum in DC for authentication and offered to donate them. I am still waiting to hear back.

    I hesitate to post the pictures because I believe the material is disturbing enough to violate TOS and get the thread locked, which I don’t want to do. But they are very creepy.

    For now, rather than post specifics, I'll just say I've had patients in my ambulance that have given me the creeps, especially ones we've had to take from a prison hospital to a better equipped facility. When they're shackled with 4-8 sets of restraints, I'm accompanied by two armed officers in back with me on the trip, and we have a multi-car lights and siren police escort... well... I never asked what that prisoner did, and frankly I don't think I want to know.

    This story sort of fits. Anyway, I'm 64 and will never forget it.

    I was about ten and my next door buddy found a box of photos his dad had from WWII.

    There was a small old black and white picture of a pier, some water, palm trees and two GIs holding a long pole between them.

    The pole had about ten coconuts hanging from it and I remember thinking - 'Why would someone take a picture of a bunch of coconuts'.

    Upon taking a close look, the coconuts had ears.

    Is the creepy woods thread available anywhere?

    I've searched for it, but couldn't find it. Weird, as I thought I was subscribed to it. If anyone has the link, i'd love to read it again.

    You can shove that blanket statement up your nose.
    My story is entirely true.
    Feel free to research attacks on the market places in Mahmudiah, Iraq between 05-07.

    My search turned up an older thread asking about the woods thread as well. Inside I found this link:

    Hope it helps!

    That is crazy...just nuts. And by the late 70's Gacy had already killed something like 25+ people.

    Until I was 8 years old I lived in a neighborhood in Massachusetts that had a lot of woods in the area. My friend and I were in the woods behind his house when we ran into this guy, much older probably high school age, shooting his 22 at some cans. A few days later he murdered his mother with that gun and dumped her body in the woods nearby. I didn't find out the full story until I was a teenager, but it still creeps me out.

    I've been out there. Other viewers nearby saw something. One group of middle aged women with several bottles of wine said they saw the lights. Some guy who pulled up in a Miata with CA plates, the top down, and a cello in the passenger seat wandered off into the desert with the cello and started playing. He came back and said the lights split up, played leapfrog, and changed color. Apparently they danced to his music, and flew around him.

    All I saw were the headlights from cars going down a mountain. They all fillowed the same path, came on and went off at the same points, never passed eachother, etc. Also, I can read a map and compass, and verified the next day visually and on paper that those lights were in the exact direction of the road down the mountain.

    I'm not saying there are never unexplainable lights there, but all the lights I saw were headlights.

    Makes for a pleasant evening in the desert, if you don't mind the crazy people.

    Want to see something cool? Look up the Marfa Lights Viewing Center on Google Earth. See those lines just south of it? That's an old air base. Only foundations and roads remain. Interesting history to it.

    I was on the panel but not selected for jury duty of a child molester. He had recorded many DVDs of his activites. As his defense consisted of "you can't prove which jurisdiction these crimes occurred in," (ultimately caused half the counts to be dropped,) the jury had to watch the DVDs. All of them. The county later had to provide extended counseling for the jurors.

    Seeing that guy up front of the room, you might not have known he was evil. Maybe odd-looking. But when you hear the direction questions are going in voir dire, you could tell it wasn't going to be a pleasant trial.

    As far as luring little kids into a van, that happened recently in my city- young girl riding a bike with her 8 y/o brother got grabbed right off her bicycle. Neighbors saw it happen but couldn't stop it, the girl's dog even bit one of the attackers. Girl dropped off 8 hours later out by the beach. The suspects when caught are 14, 15, and 18, IIRC. Crazy to think that happens.

    And the estimates of active serial killers in the US is scary, but believable. If no bodies are found, or people aren't reported missing, might never found out about some of them.

    My girlfriend, lets call her "May" for her privacy, was walking back to a babysitting clients house because she left her keys there the night before.
    (door was unlocked when she walked home, so she didn't even notice then)

    On the way back to this place, she noticed a little girl who looked like she was about 4 years old (remember this part, it's important later) out in the street wandering around.

    She notices a white SUV driven by a "creepy older guy" going very slowly past this little girl, and the guy says something like "i lost my puppy can you help me."

    Mind you, May didn't have a gun or anything. She's 20 and not old enough to carry in iowa. She calls 911 and puts the phone in her front pocket.

    She walks across the street and says "hey sweetie where's your mommy? Let's go find your mommy." And this guy gets all pissed off. "Hey F you go away she's coming with me she's my daughter"

    May says "The F she is I already called the cops". The guy drives off, and parks 2 blocks away. Presumably he was hoping May would think her job was done and leave this kid alone.

    The cops show up in about 3 minutes from the time she called. Big shout out to the local PD, particularly the dispatcher.

    May points out the guy parked like 2 blocks away, and they go run his plates and everything. May told me "a big red box showed up on the computer and the two cops immediately drew their guns and arrested him".

    He not only had a rapsheet but outstanding warrants. Domestic battery, kidnapping, and I think rape were all in there.

    Funny thing was the little girl was afraid of police, like deathly afraid. (which tells you something). May helped further by getting this girl to tell her where she lived.

    May and the police bring this girl home, and the mother was so drugged out on who knows what she barely registered anything happened. She didn't know or even care. The police arrested her too for child endangerment, and probably were gonna add whatever drugs she was on.

    Oh, and she wasn't 4 years old. She was a malnourished 9 year old.

    The child went to a good foster home. May has known them for a long time, they're good people.

    May is 20 and you need to be 21 to even have access to a handgun in the state of Iowa. I was working out of state at the time. I told her she can walk into any gunstore and pick any handgun she wants and I'll by it for her.

    More than I worry "what if this guy had a weapon", I wonder...

    What if May didn't leave her keys there and walk back to get them?

    What if she was less observant and her BS meter just didn't go off?
