What Happens In Vegas, Stay In Vegas

Las Vegas, NV - A local author was tormented in her sleep last night by what she described as, “some crazy woman singing off key outside of my bedroom window”. The author, Sue Julsen, creator of “Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival”, stated that the offensive sound started at approximately 11 PM and continued until the cops arrived at 2 AM. 

“I was trying to sleep, after a full day of writing and caring for my family, and I heard this really annoying voice singing “Barbie Girl” completely off key over and over again. When I would scream out the window or try and block out the noise, it just seemed to get louder. It sounded like a woman was singing, yet I could never see anyone from outside of the window,” Julsen told reporters outside of her home. 
David Hammerstein, the investigating officer, told the gathered reporters, “Last night, we had a noise complaint from Ms. Julsen, though she never saw the culprit. We are looking into this matter, and have advised her to contact us immediately if it happens again. We are looking for the suspect, and from what we’ve found so far, we believe we know who the guilty party is in this matter.” 
Authorities would not release the name of the culprit, though Annabel Lee was quick to say that it wasn’t her, for once. She maintains that she was not in Vegas and that even if she was, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Police are looking into the singing and attempting to figure out if the song choice has anything to do with Ms. Julsen. 
“I just hope they find this person so I can get a good nights sleep and be able to finish my next book. I’d hate to write the lyrics to that song over and over again for the last five chapters. I feel my readers deserve to at least have the plot finished.”
Annabel Lee is a freelance journalist for the Baltimore Fake Times Journal. She was singing “Barbie Girl” all day in the office, though she was actually on time for work, for once, so she’s not a suspect in this matter.
