    Calling in twice to same Walmart? Hm, I hope they solve the case, the way I’d start is what the person sounded like? How was the message transcribed, then I’d probably follow up on Social networks or some sort.

      Yeah maybe they should just have an official description of the voice and then search on Facebook for matches.
