Daily 2 Cents: 'Don't get out of the car!' -- Letters From Dead Wife -- Bizarre Snake...or Something Else?

'Don't get out of the car!'

“I grew up in the Fresno county and Kings county area. There are strange things going on for sure!! My dad and I had an experience one night while driving on a foggy country road at night. It was extremely foggy, and you could barely see the road. But I noticed a red light was following us above the power lines. I thought that was strange so I asked my dad who would be crazy enough to fly a plane above the power lines on a foggy night?! He thought that was weird too, so he pulled over to have a look. That's when it got weird! I don't know why, and still can't explain it, but I completely panicked and begged my dad to please not get out of the car!! The last thing I remember is curling up in a ball on the floor to hide. I don't know why. I remember nothing after that. And my dad would never talk about it. No matter how many times I brought it up. My dad passed away over 10 years ago, so now I'll never know what happened when he got out of the car. But I will tell you this, after that happened, I was totally terrified of my bedroom window at night! I would wake up so scared I couldn't move! And when I finally could, I'd run into my parents room and crawl into bed with them. This didn't happen before the incident, but after. We moved up north to Modesto for a couple of years. And never had anymore night time freakouts. But I still feel chills when I remember the whole thing!"

Letters From Dead Wife

This bizarre piece was published in the 'Chicago Tribune' on January 2, 1888:

Nebraska Letter to "Kansas City Journal": William S. Aimison, a farm-hand working for a man by the name of Bills, about fourteen miles west of this city, was in the city Friday, and related a strange story, which in substance was as follows:

He says he was married in Illinois about six years ago and three years later his wife died very suddenly. He attended the funeral, as a matter of course, looked for the last time upon the face he had loved in life, now cold in death, saw the coffin closed, lowered into the grave, and heard that awful sound as the earth from the grave-digger's shovel fell upon the coffin-lid that hid from sight all that he held dear in this world. Shortly after the death and burial of his wife he removed to Kansas and for the last year has been in Nebraska. In all this there is nothing singular; such things happen every day.

Now comes the strange part of his story. He says that shortly after he reached Kansas he received a letter, dated and postmarked at his old home in Illinois, signed by his wife's name, "Lulu," and unmistakably in her handwriting. Of this latter fact he is assured, as he compared the handwriting with that of several letters received from his wife before his marriage, which he still has in his possession. She said in the letter that she was very lonely, missed him greatly, and implored him to return to her. The only singular thing to one not knowing the facts of the case was a sentence something like this: “You all thought I died, but I did not, and am much better than when I saw you last.” To the latter part of this sentence Aimison could or would not attempt an explanation. Otherwise the letter was such as any wife might write to an absent husband.

Since then at irregular intervals he has received other letters, all couched in endearing language, but making no attempt to explain the mystery. One came from Concordia, Kas., near which place he was located before coming to Nebraska. In this the writer bitterly bewailed the fact of his leaving before she reached him.

At first Aimison thought some of his former acquaintances in Illinois were playing a ghastly practical joke, but after receiving several letters began to feel disturbed, and sent them back to his wife's parents in Illinois. They agreed with him that the handwriting was that of their daughter, but could offer no explanation. He answered one of the letters, addressing it, "Mrs. W.S. Aimison," and it was returned to him at this city from the Dead-Letter Office. The last letter received from his "wife" came about three weeks ago, dated at Table Rock, this state, and stated that "Lulu" was there sick, out of money, and asking him to come to her relief. Aimison left immediately upon receipt of this letter for Table Rock.

Upon investigation after his arrival he found that a woman had been at the hotel there, arriving several days before he did. She was sick when she reached there, confined to her room most of the time, and left after a week's stay for no one knew where. In the register at the hotel he found the name "Mrs. Lulu Aimison," no place of residence being given. The handwriting was identical with that of the letters he had received. The description of the woman given by people at the hotel was almost identical with that of his wife the last time he saw her alive. There were slight discrepancies, but nothing but what three years' time accounts for. Aimison, now thoroughly aroused and determined to get at the bottom of the affair, left at once for Illinois and had the remains of his wife exhumed, finding them as they had been buried: there could be no mistake about that. The question is, Who sent the letters and who is the woman? Mr. Aimison is a fairly educated man, not at all superstitious, but acknowledges that the affair has worried him a great deal. His reputation here is good, his employer speaking very highly of him. He says if he receives any more letters he will not allow them to trouble him, but will make an earnest effort to discover their author, and when he does has promised to tell what happens.


Bizarre Snake...or Something Else?

The stomach-churning video shows an enormous black creature pulsating on the tiled floor.

It has a tiny head and a two-metre-long body but according to cameraman Zul Hanif Anip, it looked completely different to a snake.

The mystery beast is seen surveying its new surroundings after it reportedly became too big for the pipes.

Zul, 25, discovered the nightmarish beast with his wife Puteri at their home in Alor Setar, Malaysia.

“It was scary,” he said. “It came up through the toilet. No one had been throwing away the water.

“I think the creature grew up inside the pipe works connected to the toilet hole, because I have checked and there is no entry point for it to have got inside. Video / read more at Terrifying video shows gigantic ‘swamp MONSTER’ slithering out of toilet and across floor
