Description: SCP-XXXX resembles a clipped news article about murders happened in 20██, in Dallas, Texas. The article states that the murderer ███ █████ was captured and convicted for life after he murdered 7 people between ██/██-█/██/20██. The article also states that subject made suicide in his cell by stabbing himself in the heart 3 times. When not exposed to light or light level goes under 10 lumens anomalous events will happen in 500m from SCP-XXXX and its copies. The events will also appear when SCP-XXXX is exposed to light, but will happen less often ranging from 10 to 24 hours. If SCP-XXXX and it’s non foundation made copies are viewed by human being the subject will start feel severe discomfort, head ache and nausea. After 5 hours the subject start experiencing severe paranoia leading subject making suicide. Seeing the anomalous events causes nosebleeds to the subject. Subjects also complain hearing voices in their head.

SCP-XXXX-1 was recovered by foundation agents in ██/█/20██ when they heard rumors of ghosts haunting one of the houses in the neighborhood. It is now known that there are 45 known copies of SCP-XXXX in United States. There are currently 6 copies of SCP-XXXX in possession of the Foundation.

Addendum XXXX-1: Site personnel have reported that they have seen man in a trench coat wandering near SCP-XXXX containment. Cameras have proven the reports true.

Addendum XXXX-2: One of the copies of SCP-XXXX disappeared when agent █████ and Dr. █████ were replacing one of the lights. It was found one (1) hour later from section 7 of the facility. Dr. █████ requested that filing cabinet A-4 should be locked whit a padlock to prevent further disappearance of copies of SCP-XXXX. Request approved.

How did the copy just disappear? We didn't saw anything. Is SCP-XXXX really haunted? -Dr. █████
