Pumpkin Eater Posted November 25, 2008 Report Share Posted November 25, 2008 Corvalis (AP) In what has become a local mystery to the citizens of Corvalis as well as the local police department, loud noises described by many as "sobbing, whining, and chanting" could be heard across the city Monday afternoon, baffling many residents and annoying many others. Similar noises were heard locally about the exact same time on a Monday four weeks ago, adding to the mystery that is quickly becoming a local legend. Beginning at about 1:15 Monday afternoon, the Corvalis Police Department started recieving numerous noise complaints; scores of people reported hearing loud sobbing noises. One witness said the crying was interspersed with the incessant whining chanting: "Derek Anderson is better. Romeo is a BQ fag. Al Lerner is a BQ Fag." Adding to the confusion, police have reported that many local businesses and residences have been vandalized in the past month with grafiti that reads "BQ fag." Police remain unsure if the two instances are related. Corvalis Police have not commented further on the source of the crying, but one officer, who asked to remain nameless, remarked that they have not identified what was causing the disturbance. The noise pollution, according to the officer, seems to be coming from the vicinity of the 400 block of South Street, where both the sewage treatment plant and Corvalis School for the Severely Mentally Retarded and Incapacitated are both located. However, by officers arrived in the area, the sobbing ceased. The officer remarked that the Corvalis School for the Severely Mentally Retarded and Incapacitated usually has monday afternoon entertainment consisting of puppet shows and clowns crafting balloon animals that begins roughly at 1:30, but was unsure if there was a connection. "This has all of us baffled. We would like to get to the bottom of this" the officer commented. "People are getting worried. They talk more about these strange noises everyday. They are getting scared. We need to find out who or what Derek Anderson is." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
