A handful of creepy clown sightings have been reported all across the country in the past couple years, and though the clowns never seem to be interested in hurting anyone, they’ve nevertheless scared the crap out of those who have spotted them. And now one is terrorizing Chicago.
As reported by CBS Chicago, Julia Graham and her husband were driving past the historic Rosehill Cemetery at around midnight the other night when they spotted a man scaling the 7-foot gate at the entrance. Upon closer inspection, they noticed he was wearing a rainbow wig and a red nose.
“When we got closer, we realized it was a clown, which was super weird,” Graham says. “I mean, this was somebody putting forth a lot of effort — and being really weird.”
Shocked by what she was seeing, Julia busted out her cell phone and began filming the clown, who responded by creepily waving at the camera. He didn’t seem to be alarmed by the fact that he had been caught trespassing in the cemetery, and he slowly ran off into the darkness after spooking the couple.
“I just think it’s creepy and wrong,” said Graham, appropriately freaked out by her strange encounter.
