A phone call from the mind of Wes Craven
On Saturday, Sept. 15, at 6:42 p.m. a woman called police to report that she had just received a voicemail from another woman who sounded very much like she was in distress. In addition, there was some time of loud noise in the background.
An officer went to speak with the woman and listened to the voicemail. Based on this, the officer re-dialed the last incoming number and he reached the other woman. After speaking to this person, it turned out that she had accidentally pocket dialed the original caller and never knew the phone line was open.
And the menacing noise in the background? Turns out that it was, in point of fact, a chainsaw.
