Killer Clown Epidemic

Destiny Souze, Reporter

Clowns are widely feared entertainers; throw in “killer” and you’ve created many people’s worse nightmares.

clown sighting started during August in South Carolina. Clowns were reported trying to lure children into the woods. It didn’t take long for this clown trend to spread to places like Australia, United Kingdom, and Canada which have all had their own “Killer clown” sightings. In Australia a “Clown sightings Australia” Facebook page has already attracted 27,000 likes.

No one is certain what these clowns hope to achieve and their motive is unclear. With Halloween coming up officials are reminding citizens to stay safe and be aware of the people around them.
