DENVER – Around this time last year, its seemed like nearly all social media was abuzz with creepy clown sightings. This year, however, it seems the craze created around Halloween in 2016 has floated away, even after the remake of Stephen King’s “It.”
If you recall, sightings of creepy clowns began in The Carolinas around the middle of August in 2016.
People in North Carolina reported people dressed as clowns trying to lure them into the woods with money and with candy.
After news media reported those sights, which sheriff’s deputies couldn’t find any evidence for, more reports started popping up in states across the south: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and even Tennessee saw reports of creepy clowns terrorizing neighborhoods.
