#7. Armin Mewies
Armin Meiwes is a German cannibal who posted an Internet ad looking for a “well-built, 18 to 30-year-old to be slaughtered and then consumed.” To everyone’s surprise, a man named Bernd Jürgen Armando Brandes saw the ad and volunteered
As promised, Armin proceeded to slaughter and eat him, and recorded the whole thing to prove it was consensual. A German court initially convicted Meiwes of manslaughter, which only carried a sentence of 8.5 years, but he was later retried for murder in 2006 and sentenced to life in prison.
#6. Accidents, Diseases and Deaths at Disneyland
The “Happiest Place on Earth” has had its share of heartbreak: a measles outbreak, numerous injuries, several deaths… But perhaps one of the most tragic incidents happened to a 4-year-old boy on Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin on September 4, 2000.
The child fell out of the ride and was dragged underneath it, causing multiple injuries- including cardiac arrest and brain damage. Disney paid for his care until his death in 2009, but never accepted blame for the incident.
#5. H. H. Holmes
H. H. Holmes is considered to be one of the first widely-known serial killers in history. Upon arriving in Chicago, he built a block-long hotel to house those visiting the city for the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893. What guests of the World’s Fair Hotel didn’t realize is that it was built specifically so he could murder and hide bodies without anybody noticing.
He eventually admitted to killing 27 people, but some estimate he was responsible for up to 200 deaths.
