'Grim Reaper' Shocks Mourners

Here's a way you can become an attention whore. Dress up like the 'Grim Reaper' and roam a cemetery, while praying (or preying) for the dead among shocked mourners:

A local cemetery in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has become the haunting grounds for a mysterious man dressed like the Grim Reaper.

The man first showed up at the San Jose del El Rosario Cemetery last month wearing a black cloak over a white dress. His face was covered and he occasionally carried a bouquet of flowers that looked as if they'd been plucked from a nearby field, KRQE TV reports.

The strange figure disappeared, only to show up again this weekend and consent to an interview with the station.

The mysterious man says his name is the "Light Wanderer" and that he comes to the cemetery to pray.

“There is a place where sleepers sleep and dreamers dream and patiently await,” he told the station, adding that people shouldn't fear him.

“There’s nothing to be afraid of except those who seek to cause harm, pain, destruction,” he said. - THP


Mourners are terrified of mystery grim reaper figure who has been standing over cemeteries in the United States.

Witnesses have seen the man, who calls himself the 'Light Wanderer', walking alongside the tombstones and monuments in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

However, the man in the ominous cloak insists that they have nothing to be scared of - unless they wish harm upon him.

After refusing to reveal his true identity, the man says that he appears at the cemetery to pray for the dead and to spread a message.

“The weight of time weighs heavy on our souls,” he said to KRQE News 13.

“There is a place where sleepers sleep and dreamers dream and patiently await."

Cars have pulled over in shock of seeing the reaper on top of the hills in Gibson, Albuquerque.

Residents believe that the man is just seeking attention.

“There’s cars all over, and it’s just causing chaos,” said local woman Priscilla Valdez. - UPI
