    I came into my apartment from inside and took off my coat. Then after a few minutes, I felt like something dropped from my head to back. I looked on the couch and there was nothing there. I went to the mirror and could see something was on the back of my shirt. I took my shirt off and something strange was squished on the back. Below are 2 photos. Bed bug?

    I checked the inside of my coat and couldn't find anything.

    Bedbugs don’t “break up” in that way when pressure is applied, it’s too large to be a nymph and wrong parts to be a juvenile.

    Hope that helps.

    There's really nothing in your pictures to suggest any insect.
