Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Французские Альпы

The 9-year-old witness was ill with a very high fever and was lying in bed, while her mother was sleeping on the bed next to her. 

She was still awake when she suddenly saw a rather attractive adult woman, dressed in black, with long black hair, standing to the right of the bed and looking at her, grinning maliciously. 

Aside from the fact that a strange woman was in their house in the middle of the night, the strange thing was that she had "vampire" teeth or fangs. The terrified witness tried to wake her mother. 

She shook her shoulder, saying:

"Mom, there's a vampire in the room." 

Her mother groaned and went back to sleep. The witness then closed her eyes and hid under the blanket. In the end, she fell asleep and does not remember how the strange woman left.

Original news

Location. French Alps region, France
Date: 1988
Time: late night
The 9-year old witness was sick with a very high temperature and was lying in bed with her mom sleeping on the bed next to her. She was still awake when she suddenly saw a fairly attractive adult woman, dressed in black with long black hair standing on the right hand side of her bed looking at her, grinning in an evil sort of way. The weird thing apart from the fact that there was a strange woman in their house in the middle of the night was that she appeared to have “vampire” teeth or fangs. Terrified the witness attempted to wake her mom. She shook her shoulder saying, “Mom there’s a vampire in the room.” Her mother moaned and fell back to sleep. The witness then shut her eyes and hid under the covers. She eventually fell asleep and does not remember seeing the strange woman leave. Many years later she spoke to a friend that lived in the same neighborhood back then and she described encountering the same black clad woman in her bedroom also, standing by her bed.
