There's A Terrifying Person In A Cloak Dropping Raw Meat At Playgrounds

This is absolutely horrifying.

Actual serial killers are less frightening than this cloaked figure reportedly sneaking into playgrounds and dropping off raw meat.

After a post featuring a weird hooded figure who allegedly left raw meat on a playground went viral, North Carolina police began investigating pictures of the meat-sorcerer.

If Voldemort had a child with the emperor from "Star Wars," and that kid had a weird obsession with raw meat and small-town playgrounds, it would be this kid.

According to the caption, the mysterious hooded figure appeared outside of an apartment complex in Gastonia, North Carolina.

It is unclear what the character was doing outside the complex and what the reason was for dressing in a long, black cloak.

Also, nobody knows what the deal is with that raw meat thing.

Police are looking into the claims, but police spokesperson Donna Lasher said they can't tell much from the picture.

They can't even confirm whether or not the picture was taken at the reported location.

Lasher told WBTV,

It could have come from anywhere. We don't know if this is some bogus prank someone is playing.

I don't understand the South. This whole thing is too "True Detectives" season one.
