Police are investigating after cards warning residents that “something terrible is going to happen” were left on hundreds of cars at numerous suburban locations over the weekend.
According to police, the cards and signs read:
“Something terrible is going to happen in Aurora 12/31/16. The wise will find the truth and act before it is too late. If you are vigilant and watchful the clues will appear as you travel the roadways. The answer is all around you but will you find it before the evil is done?”
Authorities stressed they “do not want the community to panic,” and said numerous law enforcement agencies are involved in the investigation.
The cards were found Sunday on vehicles in the Fox Valley mall, the Wheaton Bible Church, the Willow Creek Church and AMC Movie Theaters in South Barrington.
Similar signs were also found at Studio Drive and Barrington Road in South Barrington. Aurora police said as of Thursday there were no suspects.
“While we’re not certain as to what the meaning behind the messages are, we do not want the community to panic. The incidents do serve as an excellent illustration of everyone’s role in keeping our community safe in that any suspicious behavior, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should be called into 911 immediately. If possible, taking a photograph or video of the suspicious behavior is also recommended as long as doing so would not put someone in immediate danger.”
So, is something terrible really going to happen in Aurora on December 31, 2016?

A Facebook page that mirrored the language on the cards and signs — but did not offer further specifics on what "terrible" thing would supposedly happen — was at one point taken down but has resurfaced, this time with messages condemning abortion and with images depicting bloodied fetuses. "We believe it may be related to an anti-abortion group," said police spokesman Dan Ferrelli.
In a long post published Friday morning, the author took an authoritative and religious tone, claiming that abortion is evil and results in children becoming "legally murdered."

"Around 30 pre-born boys and girls are scheduled to be mass-murdered at Planned Parenthood in Aurora because their parents decided that murder was better than being good parents, that mutilating their child to death was better than adoption."
