Creepy and mysterious clown sightings continue

When these so-called creepy (but some what mysterious) clowns surfaced in Florida, We launched our own investigation into these sightings and have come up with a few possible explanations as to why so many creepy and sometimes frightening clowns are popping up virtually everywhere.
Before we go into details surrounding our research involving these clown sightings, you should first beware that you are reading this on a paranormal investigation site with far more open theories then the officials or media these sightings are being reported too. Our group often investigates a wide range of unexplained activity usually within the paranormal realm, and prankster clowns don't fit that but there was something about the clown craze that our researchers took note of, and has been seen in the world of mythology and folklore in the past. If you breath life into a myth too much, it has a way of becoming a reality.

First of all we did not conduct any field investigation into these sightings due to the fact that any and all information that we would need for an investigation like this could easily be found online, and besides what would be the odds of the reported clown still being there upon our arrival?

Since we are looking into the clown sightings themselves and not reporting on any particular case, we will avoid details surrounding the reported sightings. However these case details are easily found in a number of online stories.

It's impossible to believe that all of these clowns are doing it for the same reason, so we will explain how we went from a few clown pranksters to a viral trend of clowns everywhere.




1) When myth becomes reality

We have found that Mysterious clown sightings date back to the mid 80's but very little to any evidence ever surfaced to prove any of these early sightings was in fact occurring, therefor causing the matter to fall into the massive world of myths and legends. Now, it appears that they are back and they have become more than just odd sightings with a mythical feeling but instead a symbol of fear and misunderstanding. It only takes one person or group to conceive a hoax and have it shortly become a living breathing myth, and as it grows into a viral world we will start to see more copycats of what has already been reported, Remember hoaxes and non-legitimate sightings are also reported and therefore are mixed in with the ones that are legitimate.           


2) 15 minute fame seekers

We all know how the media loves nothing more than to over play their stories, People expressing themselves in odd ways doesn't sell papers or get high ratings, but psycho killer clowns who want to hurt you do.

Most of the clowns we are seeing now want nothing more than to write themselves into the trend of the story. If you dress in a clown suit and walk around in public you will become internet famous, and we think 90% of these sightings are a case of just wanting to be apart of the story and are harmless.

3) Thrill seekers

Sometimes being apart of the story or trend sounds great for some, but others just enjoy the thrill of spiking fear in the unsuspecting. These would be the ones going out of their way to ensure their presence is frightening  such as hiding in the bushes for the right moment to jump out and perhaps even give chase to the person they just frightened, Most of these clowns might be found to be teenagers or college students out looking to scare a few people just because their board.


(FINAL CONCLUSION)

Although these are only three of many, many more reasons for why mysterious and frightening clowns are showing up and have been reported over the last 30 years, and yes with a trend this large we will have a few bad seeds making things more serious than what it actually is.

We will continue to follow this mysterious trend and ask that you please report any odd non-threatening sightings you may see in Florida or elsewhere to North Florida Mystery Trackers, if the sighting appears to be threatening or you feel threatened report it to the appropriate authorities handling the situation in your area.
