Jeff the Killer
Jeff the Killer is a classic Creepypasta character created by a YouTuber named "Sesseur" around October 2008.
The character shown in his video is basically a male without a nose but with two black rings around his eyes and with a distorted, curled smile. Despite the picture becoming a part of a Creepypasta story, it is now known as a widely popular internet jumpscare image.
Before the Creepypasta appeared, the image is known to first appear on a Japanese site around the year of 2005, along with another one which is believed to be the "less-photoshopped" one. There are two page links of the images, including a timeline to where they supposedly came from.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: I've gotten some responses so far to where the original Jeff the Killer pictures supposedly came from. First off, the unedited photo was apparently of a girl pulling a stupid face in a dark room; and because of the camera flash blocked her face, it looked kind of creepy and that's probably the reason why it got photoshopped by users in her 4chan posts. The second user determined that she supposedly spammed this picture on a 420chan /b/ thread and her responses were the same results in prior to her original post on 4chan. The third one stated that the girl's name was Victoria, and the other pictures she had posted on 4chan were unrelated and irrelevant to the one she took.
Beforehand, I began to go into further analysis to see who the girl behind the Katy Robinson photo was. By doing a reverse image search attempt, what I've stumbled upon was that her old photo originally appeared on the TrueChristian.org site and it occurred in the owner's hate e-mail pages. The girl's name wasn't Katy Robinson, it is Heather White. I've contacted her on Facebook and she said that she wasn't the girl who appeared on 4chan at the time and hoped that the people who took her identity gets their pages and accounts shut down.
