Over the weekend, a submission to a website called PostSecret.com went viral on Reddit and prompted police to search a Chicago park for a possible body.
PostSecret.com is a web site in which people mail in their anonymous “confessions” on homemade postcards and the site posts the entries online. On Saturday night, the top entry listed on the website was a postcard with a map of Chicago that read “I said she dumped me, but really, I dumped her (body).” An arrow pointed to what Reddit users concluded was Chicago’s Jackson Park. You can see the submission below:
According to the Chicago Tribune, someone who saw the submission on Reddit called in the tip to Chicago Police. Investigators went out today and scoured the park to see if they could find anything but it looks like they came up empty-handed.
Who knows, it could definitely be a sick joke, but there’s also the possibility that it’s real. It will be interesting to see if anything else comes out of this.
