“This was quite a few years ago now. But my friend and I had this really cool spot to hang out in the woods. You had to walk in the middle of a creek for a kilometer and duck through sharp bushes and thistles. The hike was rewarding, though. The spot was about half an acre big, pure green grass on an incline with beautiful clear water ponds everywhere. There were tons of wildlife and lots of butterflies lived there.
The story begins on the way to this place. My friend Levi and I were walking along the river on the way to the spot. It was in the middle of a valley, and nobody else ever went down there. Suddenly Levi stopped moving and ducked into a bush, I did the same because I thought there must have been a large animal somewhere.
I saw him staring up the hill and so I looked up too. There were two people standing at the top of the hill heaving back and forth a lifeless body. We watched as they threw the lifeless corpse down the hill as it bounced off the trees and eventually got stuck on a tree at the bottom.
Then they took off.
My friend and I were terrified, and I was shaking so badly I couldn’t even speak. We decided it would be best to verify it was a real body. Levi got about four feet away before screaming, ‘It has nostrils! It’s real! Run!’
We took off running and I glanced back to see the two people run back to the top of the hill. We ran through thick brush and trees to get away from them.
The next day, we were with his parents driving to town and we saw 10 firetrucks at the school closest to the forest. Terrified, we told his parents, balling our eyes out, worried we were going to get murdered.
His mom started laughing at us and said: ‘They are training for search and rescue, that was a dummy the firemen had to find.’
I never slept as good as I did that night.”
