Once there was a a beautiful young girl who lived in a small town just south
of Farmersburg.  Her parends had to go to town for a short while,  so they
left their daughter home alone,  but protected by her dog,  which was a very
large collie.  The parents told the girl to lock all the windows and doors
after they had left.  And at about 8:00pm the parents went to town.  So doing
what she was told the girl shut and locked evey window and every door. But
there was one window in the basement that would not close completely. Trying
as best as she could she finally got the window shut, but it would not lock.
So she left the window, and went back upstairs. But just to make sure that no
one could get in, she put the dead-bolt lock on the basment door.  Then she
sat down had some dinner and decided to go to sleep for the night. Settling
down to sleep at about 12:00 she snuggled up with the dog and fell asleep.
But at one point, she suddenly woke up.  She turned and looked at the
clock...it was 2:30.  She snuggled down again wondering what had woken
her.....when she heard a noise.   It was a dripping sound.  She thought that
she had left the water running, and now it was dripping into the drain
of her sink.  So thinking it was no big deal she decided to go back to sleep. 
But she felt nervous so she reached her hand over the edge of her bed, and
let the dog lick her hand for reasurance that he would protect her.   Again at
about 3:45 she woke up hearing drippping.  She was slightly angry now but
went back to sleep anyway.  Again she reached down and let the dog lick her hand.
 Then she fell back to sleep.  At 6:52 the girl decided that she had had
enough... she got up just in time to see her parents were pulling up to the house.
"good" she thought "now somebody can fix the sink...cause i know i didn't
leave it running"   She walked to the bathroom and there was the collie dog,
skinned and hung up on the curtain rod.  The noise she heard was its blood
dripping into a puddle on the floor. The girl screamed and ran to her bedroom
to get a weapon, incase someone was still in the house.....and there on the
floor,  next to her bed she saw a small note,  written in blood, saying,


Now it is time for you to lock all the windows and doors.  This letter is the
only chain letter that is true.  This did happen many years ago, and the man
who killed the dog was never caught.  If you delete this letter you will
suffer the same fate  as the girl in the story did,  years after the door was
killed.  She was raped and killed in the same town and same house as the dog.
Do not dismiss this letter, becaue if you do, a horrible thing will become of
you, everyone will soon know your name. But only because it will be the
headline of your local newspaper for a long time.  It will read.. Small Town
Murder On The Loose! You can not chance your luck on a chain letter so serious
as this.   Give up your chance to send this letter to 23 people and you will
be givving up your chance to live.  You were warned.  I hope that I will not
see any murder stories in the papers anytime soon.   And now I bid you a good
day.   And one more thing... you only have 23 minutes....  Sorry.
