Her warning wasn't taken very well
An unidentified woman hopped on social media, claiming that she lived out an urban legend after she was struck with a heroin needle while out on the town. Her pleas to be as safe as possible fell on deaf ears. Some started saying that her story couldn’t be true, as there were some aspects of the attack that just didn’t add up.
“I was drugged downtown last night. Not in the traditionally expected ‘someone put something in my drink’ way, either,” wrote an unidentified woman from Anchorage, AK on Facebook. “I felt a sharp pain in my leg while on the dance floor with a few friends, and looked down to discover a needle hanging out of it. I still am not sure exactly who did it or WHY, but after a visit to a doctor & a urine sample, we discovered it was heroin.”
The woman’s story sounded terrifying as this scenario could happen to anyone just trying to have a fun time. She continued the harrowing tale, “I feel like hell, but also feel VERY fortunate that I am still alive (considering overdose possibilities).“
She begged those reading her post to use the buddy system when they go downtown and to stay alert. She added, “Keeping it classy as always, Anchorage.”
While her story sounded like a cautionary tale to be taken seriously, it seemed strange. Firstly, if she was stabbed with a needle full of heroin, she would have noticed the drug taking over her body. She didn’t mention feeling high, yet said she could have overdosed and felt sick the next day.
“Surely the volume of heroin that would need to be injected and the time frame here make this even more implausible? Like was the dude crawling around on the floor with a full needle ready to go? And she only noticed the sharp pain and not the like, I don’t know, one milliliter of fluid getting pushed into her muscle,” questioned Redditor iheartlungs.
Not Adding Up
Drug users are also known to not give away their stash very easily. Several recovering addicts chimed in, saying that they would have never used their drugs on someone they didn’t know. “In recovery, also would have never purposely given drugs away. Because I probably waited three hours for the dude to show up and probably had to go to a couple different places just to wait for some more. And I didn’t do all of that so that I could mess with some girl in a bar. Drugs are expensive,” wrote MoarSec.
People who read her post were especially curious about the validity of her story since she refused to say where the incident occurred. After the original poster got asked to provide the name of the bar several times, she said, “I am not going to share due to the fact that it had NOTHING to do with the location. This could have happened at ANY bar.”
She said that she wanted to raise awareness about the incident, and she didn’t want to be blamed for being in a particular location. She also asserted that she was sober when she was stabbed. In order to stop people from grilling her, she said that she had “already spoken with the bar and [Anchorage Police Department].”
Nothing To See Here
In order to get the facts about the case, some people reached out to the Anchorage Police Department. Based on what the police reported, the poster was not being truthful.
Several people alerted the Anchorage Police Department about the viral post. The department wrote in a Facebook message to one person that they hadn’t heard from any person directly involved in the case. “While I cannot say this did not happen, we have been unable to find any record of this woman calling into police and reporting this incident to us (with the limited information we currently have),” a spokesman confirmed.
The unidentified woman has not commented on the story since the police have denied investigating it. Do you believe her story? Let us know in the comments and SHARE this article.
