Skeleton in the Closet

Skeleton in the Closet is a scary funny story about human remains found in a building that is about to be torn down.

Skeleton in the Closet

A very large, old building was being torn down to make room for a new skyscraper. Due to its proximity to other buildings it could not be imploded and had to be dismantled floor by floor. While working on the 49th floor, two construction workers found a human skeleton in a small closet behind the elevator shaft. They decided that they should call the police.

When the police arrived, the workers led them to the closet and showed them the skeleton. It was fully clothed, covered in cobwebs and dust and sitting in a crouched position. They all found the sight of this skeleton disturbing and wondered who it could have been and how they wound up in the closet.

The police forensics team removed the body and demolition of the building was put on hold until the police figured out the identity of the corpse. Two days went by and the construction workers were becoming impatient. They couldn’t stand it any more. They had to know who they had found.

They called the police and said, “We are the two guys who found the skeleton in the closet and we want to know who it was.”

The policeman said, “It’s somebody kind of important.”

“Well, who was it?” they asked.

The policeman replied, “The 1956 National Hide-and-Seek Champion.”

    Same type of thing happened to my sister, she was hiding in closet and no one found her i thought she made her way towards her house and we stopped the game. After 5 hours my mom found her and she was unconscious. Then she woke up after we took her to hospital. I really don’t play hide and seek from that day. The story was even funny.

    No wonder… He died waiting for someone to find him! Obviously, since he was a CHAMPION at it, no one found him, and so he died! Well at least he died playing a fun game! LOLOLOLOL!
