Pumpkin Witch - Hovel of the Pumpkin Witch (Digital)

My name is Mr. C-, and I am working on a newspaper article regarding the Pumpkin Witch Disappearances. Quite a bit of my time lately has been dedicated to digging up information on this matter, and I may have found something that requires more attention than a write up in the paper. The authorities seem to care little for the information I brought them, so I thought I would reach out to those who may listen.

As you may know, children around this time of year go missing, many of which are never found. What is generally found is a missing child's shoes accompanied by a small jack-o-lantern. Those children that are found are usually wandering through woods or farmlands with vacant expressions and unable to say anything other than to mumble the words "Pumpkin Witch." Very clearly, these children undergo very serious mental and emotional trauma.

Perhaps related to the disappearances, three figures cloaked in darkness have been spotted in areas where these children go missing. It is unclear what part these three specters play in all of this, but it is advised to keep your distance.

There are various pieces of folklore that speak of the Pumpkin Witch. These stories vary to some extent, but they all describe a dark entity living in a dank hovel near a pumpkin patch that feasts on the flesh of children. In the stories, all that is left of each eaten child is their footwear and a small jack-o-lantern. It would appear that the disappearances that have been occurring are related to the stories of the Pumpkin Witch. I will not publicly state that I believe a witch that lives in a pumpkin patch is eating children, however something strange is plainly happening here.

These disappearances always happen throughout the month of October, however due to different bits of found information, I have reason to believe that something significant will occur when the moon is full, on the date of October 5th. Be wary and do not go out alone after dark on this date. If you hear or see anything related to the Pumpkin Witch, please contact me.

Feel free to spread this information.

Remember, October 5th. Beware the Pumpkin Witch.
