|Tim Burton's depiction of A Boogie Man.|
Within minutes, the police and animal services converged into the young girl's bedroom to find nothing but scratch marks on the floor as well as blood that could not be confirmed as a known type and a bit of shedded skin which appeared similar to the skin of a snake. No other evidence of the creature was found, nor was there any clear sign of entry or exit.
A statement from Constable Saunders reads "Claw marks appear to have begun and end under the bed. No other trail, entry or exit could be established."
Ms. Richman and Jessica vacated the home by 7am, hiring a moving company to pack and move their belongings to their new apartment. Jessica, now 11, "has no memory of the boogieman," Ms. Richman exclaims and goes on to state that no further sightings have been made or experienced in their new home.
The former home and neighborhood was damaged beyond repair and demolished shortly after Cyclone Bola.
