Woman Reports Zombie Attack

Land Rover slimed with purple goo in front of Smallwood

By James Boyd

One woman’s car was covered with a purple gooey substance Monday night in an apparent zombie attack.

According to Bloomington police reports – yes, real police reports – a 20-year-old woman said she was in her Land Rover in the 400 block of North College Avenue just after 11 p.m., when a “group of zombies tried to attack her in the vehicle,” which was parked right in front of the Smallwood apartment complex.

The zombies covered part of the Land Rover in some type of purple goo, the report said.

She said the zombies put the unknown substance all over the car.

The group of ghouls then left the area.

She called 911 to report the incident, fearful that the purple substance would damage the paint on her vehicle, the report said.

Bloomington police officer Amy Romoser responded and managed to find approximately 36 people dressed as zombies, some of whom were covered in a purple substance.

However, the victim was unable to identify the specific zombies that vandalized her vehicle.

A damage estimate to the Land Rover was not available
