We were in total horror - we told nearby security and they treated it with ease, acting as if we were just looking for attention.

My father related to me a creepy event which happened to us around 1995-1996. We had taken a vacation and were midway between home and wherever we had went (upstate somewhere) and had rented a hotel room. A very shady, creepy looking man, was observed numerous times over a period of hours walking back and forth across the parking lot, looking to see if people noticed him, making sure he wasn't being watched (he didn't realiz that my father was watching him from the window) and this man walked back and forth to our car specifically, as if scoping it out.

My father decided to make his presence felt and looked down on the packing lot (we were in a room on the second floor which had a little balcony, so anyone looking from the balcony area or whatever could be seen from below). At seeing that my father had noticed him, the man fled.

That is so-ooo creepy. Thank goodness your father was was so alert.



Well I've had a few brushes with creepiness- a serial rapist, a murderer, a missing person, and a burgler

Back in about 1987 a man dubbed the Voss Road Rapist was apprehended and eventually convicted for a series of attacks in the Houston area. Well a friend called me and told me that it was Rick Fraus who was a friend of my fiance's. We were shocked b/c we had hung out with him so many times and while he did seem a little weird, I still find it hard to believe what he did. I can't seem to find anything about it online, but I may check some more later. I never married that fiance btw. I got away from him when he turned out to be dangerous too. A police officer had given me some good advice which helped me to get away from the fiance, who was not easy to get rid of.

Twenty years ago my friend was murdered by an attempted carjacker. This case was profiled on AMW. We had gone out together to celebrate her 21st birthday and later we met up with some other friends and she left with them. Anyway when they were getting gas on the way home, a would-be car jacker shot her once in the chest. Sherry Dawn Dunson. Although there is an eye witness to the shooting, the murderer has not been found.

In 1992 Tara Breckenridge disappeared from Loop 610 where her car was discovered. The story was profiled on Unsolved Mysteries and AMW too. She and I had mutual friends in the Houston area. Wayne Heckler, her boyfriend was the #1 suspect but he remains free. They could never get quite enough evidence to arrest him, but he had a history of controlling and abusing Tara and she had told many she planned on leaving him. I find his body language telling and the way he speaks of Tara just screams murderer. With no exeptions that I'm aware of everone that knew both of them thinks he killed her and hid her body somewhere. She has never been found.

In 2001 I was living alone before I had dogs, and I heard a little noise in the middle of the night. I ignored it, then something just came over me that I had to check it out. I got up and went into the living room where I was surprised to see a prowler standing there. He had come in through the back door. With authority I told him to leave and guess what? He DID. whew!!! I saw the car he & another man left in but was unable to obtain the license plate unfortunately and the police didn't find him.

A few weeks ago in Houston there serial murderer arrested by the name of Steve Hobbs. When I saw the headline I had to catch my breath b/c I knew a Steve Hobbs about 10 years ago, but turns out he is a different Steve Hobbs.
Again, whew!! But yay he's behind bars!

I'm so sorry. I lost a good friend of mine last year as well, but not to a murderer. I can only imagine the pain and anger you must have gone through. I hope the killer is found or is already imprisoned.

Thanks. I'm so sorry for your loss, as well. xx Nothing is quite like losing a friend. It has been 20 years ago, last month and it still very saddening.

My friend's name was Sherry Dawn Dunson, btw-the post didn't make that quite clear.

That prowler guy thing was really weird. I don't like to think about what could have happened. He had a get away driver, so who knows what they were up to. That is probably the only time I had forgotten to lock my door the whole time I lived there. I wonder if he had checked it other nights before. *shivers*

I'm just shocked he actually listened to you. Maybe he just wanted to rob the place and didn't realize anyone was home? Whatever the reason, thank goodness you were ok!

I'm surprised that the intruder listened to Mystery Daisy, too, and got out of her house. Finding someone in your house at night! Good grief, just thinking about it makes my blood run cold.

Glad you have dogs now Mystery Daisy! I've got beagles and even though they're just snoopy dogs, they make good little protectors!

I don't know if this counts, but once I had a patient (I work in an emergency room) from jail, who, unbeknowst to me at the time, was a rapist and murderer. He seemed so nice, I was a bit shocked to hear it!

Of course that counts!! That must have been so scary for you, looking back.

They told us that stories are 'stories' and reality is something else. They're some of the biggest idiots I've ever came into contact with.

I knew a guy at bowling who was alittle off. His mother was the school librarian of the middle school that I went to. So last year my mom found an article about a guy who killed his father that looked like one of my bowling buddies. I looked at the picture and it was indeed the guy that I knew! His mother was visiting relatives and he was home alone with his father. So then his father-a retired police man-was threatening my bowling buddy with his gun. As a way to defend himself, my buddy-we didn't know each other that well and were just bowling buddies-took another gun in the room and shot his father. You think you know somebody, eh?

One time, while watching UM, a guy drove up to my house, parked his car, and started looking in all the windows. When I heard the car, I was smart enough to hide behind a chair. He looked around for about 5 minutes before looking angry and driving off. I have no clue who this guy was and have not seen him since.

Some of the stories here are absolutely terrifying! Sageslowdrive, yours especially!

A few months ago, I was watching television down stairs because I coudln't sleep. I hear the screen door open, then the front door opened and a guy walked in. I started screaming saying get out, get out, and pushed him out the door and called the cops. My neighbors were sitting on their porch the whole time and did nothing. a few weeks later, the SAME guy tried to get in their house while they were on the front porch.
I think he was just drunk, but it was pretty scary all the same.
