The story of the South Carolina clown sightings has become a real-life nightmare that just won't quit. For a couple of weeks now, South Carolina residents have reported sightings of clowns lurking in the woods. If that isn't creepy enough, it has also been reported that the unidentified clowns have also been trying to lure away children with promises of candy and/or money.
The inexplicable saga of the South Carolina clown sightings started in a relatively small and unremarkable Greenville apartment complex called Fleetwood Manor. Initially, children who lived in the apartments began reporting to their parents that clowns had been spotted in the surrounding woods and that those clowns had tried to convince the kids to follow them into the trees.
