This is creepy… well, really, it's just suspicious.

There's not a lot to go on, but apparently a cloaked figure has been prowling around Gastonia, North Carolina — and (he? she?) might be dumping raw meat on children's playgrounds?!

What the what??

Allegedly, a person at an apartment complex in Gastonia snapped these shots of the mysterious cloaked figure coming out of the woods. At some point, word came through that the figure was also dropping raw meat around children's playgrounds, with no readily known motive for the bizarre behavior.

The only image of the cloaked person (above) doesn't tell us much — and authorities haven't even confirmed if the pics were actually taken in Gastonia like the Internet claimed.

And, as you'd expect, there's no confirmed story of raw meat that's been found around playgrounds… in fact that aspect of the story just seems to stem from Internet comments.

This is a weird story — the photos were taken roughly around August 2, the story was first reported by the Gastonia Gazette on August 17, the Internet started to pick it up a couple days ago, and now it's everywhere online — and yet with so little in the way of actual facts.
