How scary is this? One of the neighbors, Cole Butler, told KTVB that recently he was on his couch watching tv, when “when he noticed the handle to his front door starting to turn.” Then he saw a man at his doorstep asking about a “former occupant” and the card in the back of the property. Butler did file a police report according to KTVB.
