Earlier this year, a video went viral on TikTok that terrified everyone.

The clip pictured a zombie-like woman who had one shoe, torn clothes and little hair and was screaming in the street whilst covered in blood.

Many people were concerned for the woman, believing she must have been in a terrible accident, whilst others thought it had to be a movie set.

Now, TikTok users are linking the 2015 Marilyn Stanley case to the video, but it’s not actually the same person.

TikTok users think the zombie woman is Marilyn Stanley

Since the zombie woman video went viral, people have been trying to work out who the woman actually is.

People dug up the case of Marilyn Stanley, a 26-year-old woman from Kentucky who was scalped by her boyfriend.

A Boone County judge indicted Zachary Gross on charges of first-degree assault, tampering with physical evidence and harboring a vicious dog after he ordered his pitbull to attack her.

Marilyn underwent multiple surgeries after she lost 80% of her scalp, and medical experts told her she would never be able to grow hair on her head again.

In 2017, two years after the attack, Zachary showed no remorse in court and blamed everything on his dog, but was jailed for 20 years.

Fact Check: TikTok’s zombie woman isn’t Marilyn Stanley

TikTok users are convinced that the woman in the video is Marilyn Stanley, but this isn’t actually true.

The zombie woman video arose in 2021, but Marilyn’s attack occurred six years ago in 2015.

This means that whilst appearing to be similar, the two events aren’t linked in any way.

The zombie woman video remains a mystery

At the time of writing this, the zombie woman video is still unsolved.

Some people noticed that the number plates on the cars are from Seattle and have suggested that the scene is part of an upcoming American thriller movie called KIMI that is set in Seattle.

“I was trying to figure out what it is too, and a lot of people are pointing out it might be filming for a movie called KIMI since the car plate is a Washington plate and it’s being filmed in Seattle,” one person wrote on Twitter. 

Another commenter said: “Ok so I did some research and someone suggested it was a scene from an upcoming thriller called KIMI, being filmed in LA and Seattle.”

However, others claimed that the police had been dispatched to help her as she was a real woman in need of help.
