Mysterious individuals dressed in black have been reported standing at the side of roadways in Iowa.
Sightings of the strange figures, which have been reported by multiple witnesses over the last few weeks, seem to be centered around Muscatine County in the southeastern corner of the state.

One man described seeing "some weirdo walking down the paved road in a black trench coat" while another described how her son had been left petrified following a similar encounter.

The reports suggest that these 'Men in Black' are typically sighted standing at the side of the road but have even been known to walk out in to the oncoming traffic on some occasions.
The Muscatine County Sheriff's Office has since put out a notice telling people to dial 911 if they happen to come across anyone acting suspiciously.

"We have had several reports of 'men dressed in black' entering the roadway in rural Muscatine County," a spokesman wrote on the office's Facebook page.

Who these individuals are and what they are doing however continues to remain a mystery.

Not sure. I do think in the clown cases, some folks are just getting a kick out of dressing that way and standing alongside roads or streets, freaking people out

I'm failing to see what people are all upset about. Have they never seen a goth before? maybe in Iowa, they haven't.

I once saw a man walking down the street in a long back trench coat in 114 degree heat ........... but he also had little pieces of foil wrapped in his hair ... I just figured the mother ship left with out him ......

This seems like a goth or emo wandering around at night. Nothing crazy about it, and it's definitely nothing like an "MiB" encounter.

If they're jumping out in traffic, then they sound more on the emo side.

Man if i see a trenchcoat "theyre on crack" is generally my second thought right after "holy columbine"

Yeah it's me. don't see what the big deal is. I like to walk at night and its been a little chilly after dark here lately so I grabbed the only jacket not in storage. Plus it's so much easier to peek in your windows at night...
