Anyone remember the rumor from the 80s that a guy dressed like a clown driving a white van and giving out candy to abduct kids in Owensboro. What was up with that?

I totally remember that! Where did you live when that happened? Idk if it was ever verified, because I have never heard anything about him again. I wonder if it was specified to a certain demographic or if it was the entire town?

I just remember hearing it on Wbkr and on the school bus. Never heard if they caught him or if it was for real.

Looks like the clown legend was in other communities.

That is what I was wondering! If it was an urban legend or what.

I just remember something about a clown now? Maybe? But definitely a man in a white van and he was trying to bribe kids to get inside. We were all terrified.

Weren't a clown. It was just Amanda, my butt ugly girlfriend. Her orange scary hair was mistaken for a clown wig, and she really overdid the makeup back then. She's a closet pedophile!

I'm still terrified of white vans, have even told my kids about them. I just wonder why creepy older men are the only ones I ever see driving them?

I don't know about that but I have heard of a guy selling ammo out of his white van at wal mart. Maybe he just took off his rainbow wig and red nose.

What's up with the white van selling ammo? Isn't that illegal?
