Washington – Neighbors in this normally quiet area are reporting strange occurrences in the early morning hours. So far, no one has been able to explain what, exactly, they are.
“It sounds like some animal is being hurt,” said 53-year-old Rhonda Schneider, a longtime resident of the neighborhood. “I’ve never heard anything quite like it. It’s very unsettling.”
Others compare it to the noise made by dragging one’s fingernails along a chalkboard. Others still say they believe the sounds are supernatural in nature.
“I saw that movie, Poltergeist,” said 32-year-old Dan Knack. “This definitely has an otherworldly origin.”
A team of scientists has been called in to investigate.
The only neighbor who says he hasn’t been disturbed by the sound is John Doe from Washington. In fact, he said he’s never even heard it.
“I’ve heard other people complaining about it,” he said. “From what they say, it truly sounds horrific. But I’ve never heard it, myself. It’s the oddest thing – every time it’s supposedly happened, I’ve been in the shower.”
“I sing in the shower,” he said, “Often quite loudly. I guess that’s why I’ve never heard these horrible sounds.”
