Alright guys, we’re trying something a little new to see what you guys think. I know we all love watching videos and seeing pictures of blood and guts but sometimes, for me, the sounds I hear are worse than any visuals. Hearing someone terrified or in pain makes it real to me and often times gets a stronger reaction from me than the gory mess. 911 calls can be absolutely chilling when you hear the panic in someone’s voice trying desperately to get help and feeling their fear wondering if something awful is going to happen before authorities get there…at least that’s how I often feel.
This is the story of Ruth Price, an elderly woman who called 911 because of a suspicious man hanging around her house. As Ruth states in the call, the man came around asking for a guy in the apartment behind her home. This obviously spooked her enough to dial 911 and as she’s explaining the situation she pauses now and then, I assume because she hears something. Next thing you know she’s screaming at the top of her lungs absolutely terrified and at the end it seems someone is trying to strangle her. Now, the thing about this video is there’s a lot of speculation on whether or not it’s real. While there’s many good arguments of why it’s a fake it’s also never been completely proven to be a fake and I read that some people training to be 911 operators are made to listen to this call to show that everyone should be believed when they dial 911. One argument for it being fake is that the operator doesn’t do much to get a lot of information from Ruth such as her location but I’ve read as well that she had been calling the police fairly often leading up to that event and they believed she was just paranoid. Was she terrorized and the killer finally struck or is this just a hoax? Either way I find her screams pretty chilling. What do you guys think of posting some 911 calls now and then? I have a few in mind (that I know are 100% real) but wanted to get your thoughts on it.
