The Case So Far

My dad passed away earlier this year. He didn't leave much behind except a couple bags of clothes, two junker cars, and a box of video tapes. [ … ]1
[ … ] Hidden within random TV shows and movies was the strange footage I'm putting up. If you recognize anyone from any of the clips, please email me at moc.liamg|sepat.sdad.ym#moc.liamg|sepat.sdad.ym or call anonymously (860) 578-27372

Following the revelation of these videos the Youtube/Twitter user "MyDadsTapes" has been harassed by a serial killer, Donotcontinue. Donotcontinue has been posing various puzzles and committing murders as My Dad's Tapes tries to discover what his Dad was involved in.
