I was immediately suspicious. Had spam gone door-to-door? If someone's child died, that is very sad. But that letter seemed fishy to me.
The next day I googled the names of the letter senders. Nothing. I looked out the window a lot, nothing.It was kind of odd there was nothing going on outside because usually there's a lot going on. But it is really hot out. Ok, whatever. The letter was still bothering me and off and on during the weekend I googled to see what news I could find. Nothing. I didn't call the number on the letter because I was not about to fall into the trap of a scammer. I figured out which house the letter came from. Those neighbors were outside and had friends visiting all weekend. two houses down, where Neighbor B lives, it was all quiet.
I was working in my art closet when I glanced up and saw the coroner parked outside. Uh oh. Nothing was turning into something! Not good at all. But how, and why were the neighbors soliciting money from strangers without giving any details? After a lot of googling and piecing together the info., it seems the parents of the little boy (Neighbor B) found him floating in the jacuzzi owned by Neighbor A. That's so awful and so sad for that family.
This leads to lots of other questions. Did they have a gate? A cover on the pool? Who was watching the child?
I feel really bad for the family that lost their son.
But, something about that note on my door is still rubbing me the wrong way and gives me a creepy feeling.
