We get some weird mail and odd phone calls in the News 4 newsroom. We've received phone calls from people who claim they've seen monsters, that their brain is being electronically tortured by organized crime or want to book a hotel room. But a recent letter is one of the strangest pieces of mail in a long time.
News 4 at Noon used to feature the segment with Mr. Food. His recipe's were posted on our website, kmov.com, but each week we get requests from viewers for a printed copy of his recipes. A viewer recently wrote and requested a copy of Mr. Food's recipe for Asian pork chops. The weird part of the letter is not what he asked us to send him, but what he sent us. As you can see from the photos, the viewer included a clump of hair in the envelope.
Why did the viewer send a clump of hair? We don't know, there was no explanation. As you might be able to tell, the hair is partly gray. The viewer could be prematurely gray or might be an older adult. It definitely creeped out the employee who opened the letter. If you know someone who is missing a clump of hair on their head, ask them if they sent it to KMOV. There might be an interesting story behind it.
