Naked Man Spotted Running Loose In Lanark

Lanark, Illinois – So here’s a story you just don’t hear every day. Frankly, if it’s anything like what happened to a few Lanark residents, we’re probably all better off for that too.

Seems the heat has gotten to some people a little too much in the city of Lanark or either that, Pokemon Lures have just gone way too far. No matter how you peel the layers, someone in the city of Lanark apparently feels their clothes aren’t a necessity and have taken to the streets (and corn fields) with nothing on but their peach colored god given bathing suit.

We have a streaker on the loose.

lanark-naked-man-july-26-2016On her way home one night, one Lanark resident (the name is being withheld) was about to pull in her driveway as she has routinely done so many times before, when out of the corn field runs a man completely naked.

“I was in such disbelief“, the woman said.  “As I turned on my road, out of the corn field runs a man buck NAKED”, she exclaimedWho would ever be prepared for this?

On July 23, 2016 at around 9:30 p.m. by Zier and Short Rd in what would be the first of three sightings, an unidentified man came out of the corn field from the right and headed to the left towards a grass lot with storage units. (crime scene photo shown)

The witness told us, “I lost view of him as I turned in the lane“.  She went on to say “he went running through the open field… and someone else spotted him 2 miles away“.

The witness told us she was a little freaked out until she knew everyone was OK. “I really wasn’t expecting to see a naked man run out of a corn field right by my house. I wasn’t sure what to do, so I called 911″.

She told us she went into her house and when she came back out the person was gone. She went on to tell us that from what she was told by others in the area, she was the first of three calls. The last call was at 4:00 a.m.

As far as she knows, no one recognized him and she has no idea who it was.

When I called the sheriff… I couldn’t give her a description of what he was wearing” she went on to say. “I live in the middle of nowhere”, she added.  “I would expect aliens or zombies before this”.

    Headline makes it sound like it was in the CITY of Lanark. It was in rural Carroll County.
