Well, this is one terrifying discovery.
A contractor from North Carolina came across a chilling note on Wednesday morning while renovating a king suite on the seventh floor of a Sheraton Hotel, according to ABC.
The note was found behind a wall portrait and explains in detail about how the author would sneakily lure people into his or her hotel room and then murder them.
When I say "them," I mean local college students because they were the alleged killer's targets, along with guests staying in apartments "adjacent to the windows."
The author then explains his or her normal procedure, which allegedly includes gagging and sodomizing the victims before murdering them or -- as the alleged killer wrote -- letting them "go free from this world."
I actually have the chills right now.
This note is disturbing, to say the least.
MailOnline transcribed the letter. In scribbled handwriting, the killer allegedly wrote,
To whom it may concern: Between the years of 2008 and 2010, I would check into this room by special request. And after six or seven weeks of phoning, I would select a victim from a local college or from the apartments adjacent to the windows in this room. After gagging said victim, so as not to disturb the other guests, I would begin the 'procedure' with a hint of sodomy. My crimes were far from victimless, however I always committed with them with the attitude of helping the victim go free from this world and helping the community at large. I've never been one to leave witnesses but I felt I should leave this account of my life's work so that someone will understand. Are you the one who will save me?
All right, I'm sleeping with the light on tonight.
Apparently, the contractor who discovered the note has chosen not to be identified, but he did tell ABC how he felt upon coming across the nightmarish confession. He said,
I can't even explain it. It's something that you see in the movies. It's scary to be honest. That someone would put so much thought into that -- into what they are writing.
Whether the note was real or simply a terrifying hoax, the Raleigh Police are holding onto it as evidence since the written scenario does not yet match up with any reported crimes.
To anyone who plans on staying at the Sheraton Hotel in Raleigh: I would avoid the seventh floor at ALL costs.
