The driver will ask where is he going but he won’t give you a response He will only point straight After traveling in complete silence, he will suddenly begin to giggle Which turns into a sinister, manic laugh( add scary laughter) The driver usually threatens to kick him out of the car if he doesn’t stop but then in an instant, he will disappear

Finally, he pulled into a gas station and she quickly got out of the car He threw a note out of the window and it said “if you want to live again, don’t tell anyone about me and never hitchhike ever again” Well that’s probably the creepiest note I’ve ever read I think it’s time for this girl to get her driver’s license and invest in a car The Orange Socks murder crashes onto this list in at number 5

Six months later, the body of another missing woman was discovered in a wooded area and she was also shot to death and assaulted But she was also wearing the other matching orange sock It is believed that the killer had picked up these two woman at different points throughout the night while they were hitchhiker and he murdered them in cold blood But what makes this story even more scarier is the fact that its a true story and this case remains unsolved So this orange sock killer is still on the loose and he is probably still on a murderous rampage
