A 2009 YouTube video has just become official evidence in the case of a missing girl, Kayla Berg, who disappeared from a Wisconsin town two months before the video was uploaded. There’s a lot of debate on Reddit as to whether or not this video, which features a man named Patrick talking to “Walter” about a new girlfriend he met at the mall, only to then cut to a dark small room where a woman is tied up and screaming, is real or fake, but a lot of people are distressed about its existence in general.
***Also, feel free to read up on the missing case of Kayla Berg here.***
Although we’ve watched the video ourselves (and it’s definitely creepy), we believe that the video itself is a hoax.
Still, though, there are a lot of strange similarities deserving of attention and mention. First, take a look at the video yourself and form your own opinion. Then we’ll get into the weird details.
So yeah, it’s definitely weird. I’ll give this guy that (because I’m sure that’s what he was hoping for). But there are a couple of details in the video that are strange coincidences.
First, Patrick mentions Kay Jewelers and JC Penney, both places that existed at the mall Kayla Berg visited the day of her disappearance. Second, the video was uploaded exactly two months after her disappearance. Third, the man who filmed it actually lives in Marathon County, which is just a couple of miles from Antigo, WI where Kayla disappeared.
Within the past 24 hours, this video has become a really big deal and even Kayla’s parents and the police have commented on it. Kayla’s mother sees a resemblance in her daughter and the police actually went to “Patrick’s” house but couldn’t find him.
“[It] sounded like her, looked like her, it gave me chills,” [Kayla’s mother] said. “Disturbing. “It made me sick to my stomach.”
Sprenger said certain details in the video had her concerned.
“The clothing could be a big possibility,” she said. “We do believe she was wearing that type of shirt, we know she had jeans.” [source]
There have been a ton of theories made about the creepy video, and the only thing that we can say for certain is that this thing is going viral quickly. Again, we don’t believe that it’s real, but there are a hell of a lot of similarities.
