Clothing Discovered in Bizarre Incident off Route 208

Dave C. reported this on his Facebook page

Fair lawn NJ, These clothes were found, as is, today.. 25 feet from our garage… and about 500 feet from route 208. Local police were called, the officer who came out said no ID in the clothing … nothing can be done. We feel it’s a bit bizzarre how they were all clumped up… and seemingly … deliberately stashed in the wooded area behind our garage and where our daughter plays with her friends….. many others seem to think it’s the work of paramedics cutting the clothes off a trauma victim etc… which makes sense… I see it… but clumped all together, way off the highway… literally… almost in our backyard… makes no sense…my neighbors are unsettled… my family is unsettled….and…. if anyone recognizes this outfit, and feels as if it’s something more serious than a random paramedic, or crash victim disposing of their clothes …. 500 feet from the shoulder of a major highway, in a patch of woods….here you go… We have lived here a long time .. I have seen many accidents on 208 myself… firsthand, right near here…. we are in this wooded area very often… and this is something very out of the ordinary that seems really questionable. I guess this is my last ditch effort…. but, God forbid it is as sinister as it appears to be….. we would want someone doing the same if it were one of our loved ones, or our daughter who once wore the clothes. Maybe it’s a prank, or high school kids brought it all here from the highway…. but it wasn’t the wind, and it wasn’t animals.. they were all found clumped up together, in the woods… near, a small creek…. a natural gas Pipeline… a major highway and our actual, backyard. That said, as parents…. it’s hard to act like this isn’t creepy. Hopefully there’s a reasonable explanation. But, animals and wind don’t ball it all up like actual dirty laundry.
