Even if you are not a fan of Creepy Pastas, you have probably heard of the rake. There is a good article on Clyde Lewis' Ground Zero that is worth checking out.
During the summer of 2003, events in the northeastern United States involving a strange, humanlike creature sparked brief local media interest. There seemed to be a number of people who were seeing a bed side entity that was being called “The Rake.” The name was taken from an Internet meme that was created on a social network. The Rake was a hairless creature reported to be at least 6 feet tall, emaciated and sinewy with dark black eyes. The entity allegedly looked like a balding old man. The ribs could clearly be seen against the skin and the lips on the face were pulled back slightly giving the entity a death grin. - Rake: The Voice of the Silence | Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis
