The Expressionless: Fact or Fiction?

A few days ago, I encountered a story on the internet. An Urban legend, the details mentioned there are pretty creepy as well. It feels like the story has been taken right out of a horror flick. Although I believe this is more fiction than fact, I would like to take you though the story nonetheless.
In June of 1972, a woman appeared in Cedar Senai hospital in nothing but a white, blood-covered gown. Now this, in itself, should not be too surprising as people often have accidents nearby and come to the nearest hospital for medical attention. But there were two things that caused people who saw her to vomit and flee in terror. 

Checkpoint 1: Note the fact here that people started to flee in terror. Also Cedar Sinai Medical Center is a reputed hospital in LA, California. Its wikipedia page has no mention of this incident.

The first being that she wasn't exactly human. she resembled something close to a mannequin, but had the dexterity and fluidity of a normal human being. Her face, was as flawless as a mannequins, devoid of eyebrows and smeared in make-up. 

Well, she could have been a fan of the Shahnaz Hussain products. Oh wait, these products didn't exist in 1972.

She had a kitten clenched in between her teeth, her jaws clamped so unnaturally tightly around it to the point where no teeth could be seen, the blood was still squirting out over her gown and onto the floor. She then pulled it out of her mouth, tossed it aside and collapsed.

That is gross. Exactly what happens in those horror movies. Checkpoint 2.

From the moment she stepped through the entrance to when she was taken to a hospital room and cleaned up before being prepped for sedation, she was completely calm, expressionless and motionless. The doctors thought it best to restrain her until the authorities could arrive and she did not protest. They were unable to get any kind of response from her and most staff members felt too uncomfortable to look directly at her for more than a few seconds. 

Considering what she did some time back, this was an expected response from the authorities.

But the second the staff tried to sedate her, she fought back with extreme force. Two members of staff had to hold her down as her body rose up on the bed with that same, blank expression. 

Well, this was unexpected, right? Two members had to hold her down as her body rose up. It shows that she had supernatural strength. Where were the Winchesters?

She turned her emotionless eyes towards the male doctor and did something unusual. She smiled.As she did, the female doctor screamed and let go out of shock. In the womans mouth were not human teeth, but long, sharp spikes. Too long for her mouth to close fully without causing any damage… 

Go back to Checkpoint 2. When she took the kitten out of her mouth, why did no one notice that she had sharp teeth?

The male doctor stared back at her for a moment before asking "What in the hell are you?" She cracked her neck down to her shoulder to observe him, still smiling.There was a long pause, the security had been alerted and could be heard coming down the hallway.

Okay, here comes the climax. Hold tight.

As he heard them, she darted forward, sinking her teeth into the front of his throat, ripping out his jugular & letting him fall to the floor, gasping for air as he choked on his own blood. She stood up and leaned over him, her face coming dangerously close to his as the life faded from his eyes. 

Ok, the doctor seems to be helpless here. Why on earth, did he not fight back? Hitting someone with your elbows can be painful. And where were the others. How did they let her leap onto the doctor so easily?

She leaned closer and whispered in his ear.
"I...am....God...."
The doctors eyes filled with fear as he watched her calmly walk away to greet the security men. His last ever sight would be watching her feast on them one by one. 

Okay, are security guards so helpless? Secondly, does God want to hurt innocent beings?

The female doctor who survived the incident named her "The Expressionless".
There was never a sighting of her again. 

Go back to Checkpoint 1. The people who had already fled, apparently didn't inform the authorities. No one called 911. Why? And where could she have possibly gone after leaving the hospital. How come no one noticed her on the streets?

In the picture which appears along with the post, she does look like a mannequin, but there are no blood stains. Maybe it was taken after they changed her. However, how did the photographer survive to tell his tale?

However, there is another angle to this(it's just my speculation). Let us just assume it's true and try and give a possible explanation to this. It is possible that a large company (like the Umbrella Corporation in Resident Evil) could have been conducting genetic experiments in humans, and this monster breed was just one of their puppets. She could have escaped from the facility. Hungry, she grabbed a kitten not knowing what to eat(owing to the synthetic food provided in the labs), and ended up in a hospital. With the memories of the tests conducted on her, she started to fight back only when she was about to be sedated. The company, on realizing what had happened quickly tried to clean up their mess, and grabbed her shortly after the incident. They were careful enough never to let any other prototype escape, so there was no sighting again. The fact that she said she was God could have been the imagination of the nurse. The concerned authorities subdued the incident once they realized that it would just cause panic and the information was never made public. Until the internet came into being...

Even then, I would have to conclude this as just fantasy, no matter how much I would like it to be true.

Another point: she whispered to the doctor, with nobody else within hearing distance and he died immediately after. Who else heard her to know what was said? Why are there no more photos? Also, threee are four people in her room: two female nurses, the male doctor, the photographer. The photo clearly shos them trying to pull her down to the bed, which seems to indicate that this photo was taken at the big finale. Why were more photos not taken? What about the photographer and second nurse? The story mentions "the surviving nurse", but she went straight from male doctor to security, without stopping for nurse and cameraperson snacks. If some agency suppressed the other photos, how did this one get loose and not the rest? Why would an agency NOT destroy the entire film if they're powerful enough to eradicate all other traces of the creature? The cameraperson would have had at least a few minutes to recover and snap off a few more pictures, like ones in the middle of her rampage. Quite frankly there are too many "conspiracy theory" flaws in the story. Like a date, more pictures, names, the lack of wikipedia entries, etc

So I am not saying this was real but in relation to her appearance, the fact you simply wrote it off as lack of beauty products is pretty 2nd rate.

For her appearance you should look into Japanese Geishas, also there were beauty products in the seventies, even since ancient times so don't write off the appearance just yet. The teeth thing, well...that's harder.

I don't think the pic is ment to be as it happens I think it's a reenactment

Although you're argument is reasonably logical, I would have to argue. Its up to you whether you're going to believe me or not, but I see, feel and hear the paranormal. I know how they act, what they look like and how they sound. This story, however bizzare it might sound to you can infraction be very true. I just very briefly went through your summary of it and saw that you mentioned that no one could actually hear when she whispered, how did the photographer then survive, and how did they not see her teeth when she unclenched the kitten. Well the explanation can be simple: this sounds like a demonic possession. When she, or it, whispered everybody could infact hear it because whispering to a demon or any paranormal force for that matter is like speaking at a normal volume for humans. The photographer didn't have to survive in order for the picture to leak. Demons and paranormal forces do not know about cameras and even if they did, the worst they could do to it is distort the images. The photographs could've been found after the incident. When she unclenched the kitten, they mentioned she took it out of her mouth, meaning she could've easily hidden her teeth. You also mentioned that the hospital holds no records of this incident, but no running or operating business such as a hospital that's meant to help people will openly and freely admit to something like that happening. I've heard and seen many stories and people like this, it could be false in this case, but it can also be very true.

Well, it could be true. About 2000 year ago their was also a guy who walked over water.

The picture is of an actual mannequin. Student nurses work on them. I think the picture is just to show an example.

Yes, i think so too

The reason for this being the only photo (if it isn't a reenactment/example) is that the camera could of gotten damaged at some point while everything was happening and this was the only photo that was clear enough for us to see...

In some hospitals I go to the doctor will either video tape the subject or take pictures, mabey that is why there is a photo.

It's fake. I have just recently discovered that it started on 4chan. The picture was made using unicode 6.10. Also, there are no records on the Internet about Cedar Sinai having "The Expresionless." I mean, if it were real, and we already know this much about it, the people who run Cedar Sinai would probably just admit it already. It has the same concept as NASA revealing the things they know about UFOs.
In addition, there were no records of this in the June of 1972 as well. I did multiple researches, but here are some:

Maybe she was just ugly? And people thought that was too boring so they made up a story about it.

Aeon Kane said...

They may have let this story out now because if people started investigating this, it would eventually lead to the people who may have covered it up. So they let out the story and picture to create conflict between people because of differing ideas that would avert the attention away from the people who covered it up. That's my theory.

It was a short story written for the website "Creepy Pasta", which has short stories designed to unnerve the readers.

My moms been a nurse for about 40 years. I showed her this story and the pic. Ppshe says pic is from training where they used to use manaquins, still do for CPR and other training excersizes. Story....who knows. Could be a coverup like ufos, big foot, loch ness, aliens, area 51 and other testing facilities, FEMA camps, anal probing, the red list, etc etc

Ok first of all i was watching a show called unsealed about 5 hrs ago. And in the show they were talking about aliens that are reptiles and have reptile features like sharp teeth, like the lady. Another thing about them is that they can transform into human forms. So i was thinking the lady could be this creature. Also i dont think this story is real because if it is then how come i never heard about it on tv?

Wow......really?

Nick Hickman said...

Actually, this story is incorrect. She did not have the kitten in her mouth nor did she kill anybody. She actually tells the doctor the she is god and when the doctor is in shock she then leaves the building to never be seen again. You can find this story on Wikipedia.

Well if she was some freak experiment it would lead me to believe she would have animal instincts. So being in a threatining environment as she was she would attack the greatest threat. At the time it was the male doctor because he was still restraining her. Then the biggest threat was security ergo her not attacking the female nurse. As for the "I am God" thing your guess is as good as mine.

I love how everyone's claiming there's no sourcing on the Internet... While I doubt this ever happened, the Internet is hardly a viable source for the most part, and it most likely wouldn't be recorded primarily on the Internet if the incident occurred in 72

Personally, I heard a less grusome tale first. It made it seem more like a strange and unthreatening occurance, rather than a freaking horror movie. I dony k.ow if this is true or not, i believe anyone coukd nitpik detaiks until the seme true (wjether for or against). But, as a 14-year old, i will defibately be keepibg a light on. :O lol

Ok to the guy that said it could have been an alien you saved me a lot of words and this story helps me prove a point a little more I've come up with now I believe life was put on this earth by aliens exerimenting to see how they evolved which explains ufo sighttings and abductions they are coming to earth regularly to see us they've been doing it since the begining of mandkind hense just look at ancient wall paintings what else would the weird looking creatures be and they are different everywere which shows they obiosly change form the kitten in mouth to put people in shock so they leave nobody noticing teeth how would they if they were running away floating aliens are reported to do that reason she was expresionless why would she need to do anything she obiously had nothing to worry about her biting the doctor so she could leave the I am god they want us to know they created us part everything was quiet because the nurse was scared to death the reason for biting security so she could leave and they were a threat how did she disappear without a trace she got in her ufo and left the planet reason it was covered up is so there wasn't a nationwide panic reason no records except this is that everything is not on the internet anybody want to try to prove me wrong this story just made me come closer to the point I want to make
