The Old Lady
One day at a shopping mall in the afternoon, a woman was coming out of the mall from a shopping
spree. She was in a happy mood. She had gotten to havcar and loaded her stuffiest she had bought
into her trunk. When she was done loading, she shut the door of her trunk and she saw an old lady
standing by the passenger side of her car.
The old woman said "Would you be a darling and give me a lift home? I don' t have a car and I was
walking all day-" The woman said be happy to." So she unlocked the door for the old woman.
As she started to make her way around the car to the driver' s side, she started to feel uncomfertable.
So when she got in the car, she looked in her purse and said "Darn, I can' t find my credit card. I' m
going inside to see if anybody found it." The old woman said "I' II wait for you here."
The woman left to go look for help. Then she found a security guard and told him the situation. They
went back to the woman' s car and the passenger door was wide open. On the seat of the car was a
shopping bag that the old woman had been carrying. Inside of the bag was the old woman' s dress
and a gray haired wig, along with a huge butcher' s knife, a video camera, and a roll abduct tape.
During the summer of 1983, in a quiet town near Minneapolis, Minnesota, the charred body of a
woman was found inside the kitchen stove of a small farmhouse- A video camera was also found in
the kitchen, standing on a tripod and pointing at the oven- No tape was found inside the camera at
Although the scene was originally labeled as a homicide by police, an unmarked VHS tape was later
discovered at the bottom of the farm' s well (which had apparently dried up earlier that year).
Despite its worn condition, and the fact that it contained no audio, police were still able to view the
contents of the tape. It depicted a woman recording herself in front of a video camera (seemingly
using the same camera the police found in the kitchen). After positioning the camera to include both
her and her kitchen stove in the image, the tape then showed perturbing on the oven, opening the
door, crawling inside, and then closing the door behind her. Eight minutes into the video, the oven
could be seen shaking violently, afterwhich point thick black smoke could be seen emanating from
it. The camera then continued to stationary point at the oven for another 45 minutes until the
batteries apparently died.
To avoid disturbing the local community, police never released any information about the tape, or
even the fact that it was found- Police were also not able to determine who put the tape in the well.
or why the physical stature of the woman on the tape did not in any way resemble the stature of
the woman found in the oven-
