Have you received a strange call in the middle of the night lately?  If you have, you are not alone.

Essex County OPP is investigating a number of calls originating from the number 239-205-4843.  They believe the number is what they call a “Magic Jack” number which allows free long distance calling in North America.  It can not be traced back to any one person or location.

In two incidents, the man on the other end made bizarre statements like “I’m standing here freezing”, “Need a tire changed” and the disturbing “I’m going to kill a baby.”

Investigators believe the calls are only harassing in nature but ask anyone who has received one to contact police.
