It happened just a few years ago.

When I was hanging out at my cousin's apartment there was a building in front of the living room window.

That night we were having so much fun and having a fun conversation.

It was 7pm and we noticed that there was an open curtain in the building just a few feet across from our apartment.

I got up in my seat just to take a quick look at that window. I was just curious.

Then I saw a woman. At first, I couldn't see her face because her hair was blocking it.

Then I told this to my cousin. He was shocked about what I said.

He told me to get his binoculars, then he used them to look.

Suddenly he screamed in fear.

I asked him "Why?" He said "What the heck is that?"

Then I got the binoculars and then I looked.

My heart was pounding so hard.

I saw a dead woman.

Her neck was bleeding her blood was dripping under yellow dress and her body was hanging from the small chandelier.

My cousin has military experience, and he got up the courage to go into that room.

Before we went into that room we told the guard what was there.

So we had two guards following us and I told the one guard to follow me to our room, so we could see what was in that window, and he was shocked too.

He was shocked, he radioed to his fellow guard that was with my cousin, and then we followed them to the next building.

We also called the cops. When the police arrived, we struggled opening the door.

When we got there we all turned on the lights and everything in there was all messed up.

We open the bedroom, and we saw the dead body hanging from the chandelier.

Two weeks later the murder was caught and the police gave us a reward for helping to solve the case.

However, to this day I will always remember the horror we experienced.
