Something’s creepy in the state of Pa.

Maybe there's nothing eerie about western Pennsylvania, but folks keep seeing Stephen King in a seafood restaurant around here.

Some residents of Butler and Lawrence counties spotted the horror author at a state police barracks and at a Red Lobster restaurant. Apparently, King visited the area, about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh, to research rural life for a new book.

Trooper Rob Lagoon said King toured the police offices while keeping tightlipped about the story. He did say it should be out in 2003 and would be set in an area like western Pennsylvania.
