Creepy notes placed in mailboxes blamed on Game of Thrones hangover
Police have confirmed they’re investigating after typed notes were placed in letterboxes in the Cairns suburbs of White Rock and Edmonton in recent days.
The notes read, “You leave an expensive image. From a night image of you we will catch up as soon as you show yourself by day. We will let ourselves in. That my friend is not negotiable.”
A spokeswoman from Cairns Police told Tropic Now several concerned residents have contacted them.
“It’s believed the notes may have some reference to the television show, ‘Game of Thrones’.
“Police do not believe there is cause for alarm and don’t believe the notes are linked to property offences,” she said.
When a photo of one of the notes was posted on the Tropic Now facebook page yesterday, the site was inundated with theories about what it meant and comments about the eerie language it contained.
“I’d say they were broken into and have video image of the person, and they are waiting to run into them in daylight, and they are going to find out where they live and leave the same message, karma,” said one person.
“Is it a warning that their house/cars are not secure?” said another.
However, not all comments expressed concern, with many finding humour in the situation.
“It's like Liam Neeson meets google translate,” said one reader.
“It seems like a magical mystical riddle leading to some form of prize,” another said.
Police believe a teenage boy delivered the messages and are now appealing for help from the public to help identify him.
The youth was last seen in Millhouse Close, Edmonton just after midday yesterday.
He’s described as approximately 16 years-old with a thin build.
Anyone with information or has CCTV vision of the teenager is urged to contact police.
