SHREWSBURY, Mass. -- (WBZ) -- “Gosh, I’d like to give her a hug,” said Maeve Geary. She was talking about the seven-year-old girl who came knocking on her door in the middle of the night last weekend.
Geary lives in an apartment on the edge of Lake Quinsigamond in the shadow of the I-290 bridge in Shrewsbury.
It was 4 a.m. Sunday. “A steady calm knocking, no hammering. I went to my door and switched the light on and could just see, in the glass of my door, just a tiny little person,” she told WBZ-TV.
