Post about serial killer is fake.

A post that was circulating Friday, Aug. 12, on Facebook about a serial killer on the loose in Oceana County is fake, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

It was posted on the “Oceana CO. Resale” page by what appeared to be a fake account. 

The post, which included a close-up photo of a man, stated: “There’s a serial killer or abductor who is currently hunting in Oceana. My friend was almost taken by him. He drives a truck with LED lights and hits cars of women alone, and once they pull over, he takes them. Multiple disappearances. If you are in the area, and you are hit by a truck with LED lights, keep driving and call the cops. Stay safe.”

“I have no credible sources to confirm any of this,” said Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

The post appears to have been deleted from the page.
