    Is This Horrifying YouTube Video Linked to the Disappearance of a Teenage Girl?

    In October 2009, a user named Hi Walter! Its me Patrick! uploaded a video to YouTube called “Hi Walter! I got a new gf today!” In it, a man with glasses faces the camera and talks about meeting a girl at the mall. In the video’s last few seconds, the man promises to introduce the girl. The shot then switches, and he appears in a dark room, where he opens a door to reveal a young woman—bound and screaming on the floor.

    The horrifying video has since been removed for “violating YouTube’s policy on violent or graphic content.” But internet communities recently discovered it, and it popped up on Reddit and in a detailed Imgur thread a few days ago. Then, yesterday, the Antigo Police Department in Wisconsin announced it was investigating the video, because, “[it] has recently gone viral and many believe it is connected to our missing person Kayla Berg.” The department explained in a Facebook post:

    Kayla Berg, then 15 years old, disappeared from Antigo in August 2009. But the video—the authenticity of which, police said, is still uncertain—apparently led her mother, Hope Sprenger, to question whether the young woman was her missing daughter. It’s unclear when she saw the video, but based on the recent police involvement, there’s a good chance it came to her attention after going viral.

    “[It] sounded like her, looked like her, it gave me chills,” Sprenger told local news outlet WAOW. “Disturbing. It made me sick to my stomach.”

    Whether or not the video is real, it’s exceedingly creepy—the man’s demeanor can best be described as unnervingly excited, and he happily discusses the fact that although the woman “hates cameras,” he’s going to “show you her anyway.” He looks like he’s sitting in a kitchen, but the woman appears to be in a basement. The viewer never gets a clear look at her face, and the footage itself is very grainy.

    WARNING: The following video contains graphic content that may be disturbing for some viewers.

    That looks so gross.
    I'll have to have at least two to make a proper decision.
    I want a free paper crown also.

    I think hoax. Just based on that guys voice and the way he talks, seems acted. Also why does the screaming only start when he opens the door?
