  1. Saw Molly at the off-campus bookstore in Florence, Al
    She asked me to help find her dog. After I asked her if she lived there, she said she did. And then I asked her where her mother was and she said, she is around somewhere. I told her I would help find her mother. I went to the register clerk in the other room she gave me a funny look and seemed not interested in helping this girl find her mother. When I went back to talk with the little girl, she was gone.

  2. One day while riding my bike to school I past the off-campus bookstore and heard crying coming from behind the building. The cry’s sounded like they came from a little girl being hurt by something as I walked around the building I could hear growling and the girls screams becoming louder. I past the corner and witnessed a very large dog dragging the little girl kicking and screaming blood pouring from her neck. The dog dragged the little girl’s unconscious body into the bushes. I ran to the bushes to try to get the dog off of her only to find nothing in the bushes. The blood had disappeared and any evidence of a dog attack was missing.

  3. I saw Molly when the owner allowed me to go investigate the second floor after I said I saw a young girl waving at me. He was not aware of the story at the time apparently. I go up there and she asks me “Can you help me find my dog? He’s big and furry and brown.” So I say sure and find a dog around back, I go back upstairs and she’s nowhere to be found and the owner said I was the only person who had entered or exited all day.

    I believe molly is real because one day I walked by and one blind was open and 20 minutes later walked back by and two blinds was open and nobody was there at the time one night after I left Huntsville rode back by to see if molly was real or fake turns out shes real because saw molly in the middle window and rode back by 5 minutes and she was gone and the blinds was shut
