Hudson Falls Clown Sightings



They're back. Yes, the Clowns.

There has been increased media attention to reports of human criminal clown activity.

Two men wearing clown masks held up a Queens, New York, Walgreen's at gunpoint on May 22, 2018.

Then at the Little Caesars pizza shop in Holly Hill, Florida, around 11:50 pm on May 26, 2018, a "clown" attacked an employee closing up the store. The "clown" used a wooden post. The employee pulled out his concealed weapon and shot the attacker dead.



Now, sightings of a Phantom Clown described variously with a "clown mask," and/or with  "red hair and red pants," near the Hudson Falls Primary School, occurred on May 29, 2018.

(See "Phantom Clowns: Classified," for the definition and differences between Phantom Clowns, Killer Clowns, and Stalking Clowns.)

The Post-Star (Glens Falls, NY) 5-31-18, pg. 3, notes, "Police looking into 'clown' sighting near Kingsbury school."





Meanwhile, in Rhode Island, even one bizarre death has been laid to a musician "clowning around." 

The clowns are back, indeed.

Update:



Tim Binnall chimes in with his June 4, 2018, insights, reconfirming the notion, "Are Creepy Clowns Coming Back?" at Coast to Coast AM. 


Then on June 14, 2018, I was asked to be a guest on Slate's Decoder Ring podcast to talk about "Phantom Clowns." It is clear that the media attention is increasing regarding Clown reports in 2018.


Willa Paskin was the host, and Benjamin Frisch was the producer. I'll post the link when they are ready.

h/t to Paul Bartholomew for the news clipping.
