People get stuck in online “rabbit holes” pretty regularly and now it’s my time to come clean about what I tend to get stuck on for hours and hours…
I can get stuck on a certain site or a specific story for an entire night if I’m not careful…and I know that I’m not the only person who does this kind of thing…
It’s okay to admit it! We’re all part of the same club!
Folks on AskReddit users talked about very strange mysteries that are still unsolved.
1. What happened?
“The Miyazawa family.
Just listened to the Casefile podcast on this and it has my mind blown. Someone entered the family home around 11:30 pm, killed everyone, ate some ice cream, took a nap, pooped and didn’t flush, changed clothes and left like 8 hours after the crime.
20 years on and we don’t know who or why.”
“In 1994, close to a hundred school children (sixty on record) described seeing a disc-shaped craft land behind their school during morning break time in Ruwa, Zimbabwe.
Many of them interacted with beings, that fit the Grey alien description – with the children receiving what is described as some sort of telepathic communication. They all still stick to their stories today.”
3. Who was he?
“We still have no definitive proof of who this Socrates guy is.
On one hand, he’s mentioned constantly by philosophers from his time, often used as an example character, and several works are attributed to his name.
On the other hand, we have countless legal records and censuses that confirm the existence of Aristotle and Plato but NONE that link back to Socrates.
He’s either a very prolific philosopher, or an in-joke that classical philosophers would reference when they didn’t know who to attribute quotes to.”
4. Very strange…
“Tammy Lynn Leppert is one that really bothers me. She was an actress for the movie Scarface and up and left the shoot when she saw a murder scene.
The story goes she went to a Hollywood party and saw something that made her think she was being followed and someone wanted to kill her.
Her boyfriend apparently dropped her off and she was never seen again. Her mom died still looking for her. So sad. My heart breaks for her family.”
5. Off the roof.
“Death of Rey Rivera.
Found dead in a meeting room in a hotel, fell through the roof.
The last call he received was from his office but the company placed all employees under a gag order so no one can talk to police.”
“The frog boy murders.
5 South Korean boys went looking for salamander eggs in the forest one day. They disappeared. Their skeletons were found years later in a shallow grave on the mountain.
7. How did he survive?
“In WWII, Flight Sgt. Nicholas Alkemade jumped from his burning Lancaster bomber on a mission over Germany.
He fell three miles. And survived. He was not wearing a parachute. He couldn’t access it due to the fire, and decided to jump rather than burn to death.
He claims that whilst falling the 5½ kilometers, he felt this sense of calm, so calm that he managed to calculate how long it would take him to fall. He lost consciousness and woke up, 3 hours later on the ground. It appeared he had fallen through the trees above him and landed in snow, sustaining a few injuries, but still alive.
Due to his newly twisted knee, he couldn’t move, and was fearful he may die of exposure.
He blew his whistle and was eventually found, hospitalused and then imprisoned, but upon interrogation his story of falling 18,000 ft and surviving was (understandably) not believe and he was accused of being a spy.
Alkemade told them that they would find the wreckage of his plane and the remains of his scorched parachute he hadn’t been able to reach, and they did.
Alkemade survived the war and died in 1987 at the age of 64.”
8. Holy sh*t.
“The Evandro Case, also known as The Witches of Guaratuba, refers to the kidnapping and murder of the boy Evandro Ramos Caetano, in 1992, in a coastal city of Guaratuba. He was 6 years old, disappeared on April 6 of that year.
His body was found on April 11, in a thicket in the city, without several organs, with amputated hands and feet, and guts and heart torn out.
There are several holes in the investigation: involvement of the army in the investigation, rumors of a ritual of black magic and torture of innocent suspects to invent an explanation of the crime and confess the authorship of the act.
The case was closed, people died in jail and others lost years of their life in prison, but even today there are new clues emerging. 2 years ago a podcast series was launched bringing all the history of the case, it was quite successful. A series about the case is being produced on Netflix.”
“The murder of Missy Bevers near Dallas has always bothered me.
Someone walks through a church early in the morning in full tactical gear and stabs the woman to death.
No leads three years later, even with surveillance video.”
10. An experiment…
“The U.S.S Eldridge, which was allegedly the ship that took part in the Philadelphia Experiment.
The U.S. Government denied that the experiment ever took place. Though the ship was sold to the Greek Navy some time in the 50’s, and served till the late 90’s.
My brother in law, who is in the Navy, told me that everyone that served on the Leon (the Greek name of the ship) said to him that there was definitely something wrong with it, doors leading nowhere, cables seemingly appearing out of nowhere etc etc.
Some even insisted that they were hearing voices in the night.”
11. Lost to history.
“The Amber Room was a chamber decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg.
Constructed in the 18th century in Prussia, the room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during World War II. Before its loss, it was considered an “Eighth Wonder of the World”.
It still remains unfound…”
“The Kongka La Pass in Ladakh.
This region lies in the disputed border of India and China, and is truly the most inaccessible places in the world. In 1962, the armies of both the countries were engaged in a severe conflict.
After this, both China and India entered into an agreement according to which none will be allowed to patrol the region, but can keep an eye on it from a distance. After this, a popular belief floated that the Kongka La Pass in Ladakh is a hideous base of UFOs.
The area has forever remained a no man’s land due to its territorial limits and is the reason why the UFOs have chosen it as their operational base.
Reportedly, many have seen these UFOs and both the Indian and Chinese Governments are aware of these developments. In 2006, Google Maps too baffled the world with some images that looked liked military facilities, but till date the whole issue remains mysterious and unexplainable.”
13. A dark day.
“On April 19, 1995, a truck bomb detonated outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The explosion killed 168 in what was the deadliest terrorist attack on the United States until 9/11 – to date, it still remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in the country.
One of the lesser known things about this is the case of the missing leg. Investigators discovered the leg laying among the rubble and identified it belonging to Lakesha Levy, the only problem was, she’d already been buried with both her legs.
She was exhumed, her severed leg was placed in her coffin while the other leg was taken to the F.B.I laboratory for identification. Since it had been embalmed, a DNA sample was unable to be obtained.
The extra left leg, which had been mistakenly buried with Levy, is suspected to belong to an unidentified 169th victim, whose body had mostly disintegrated in the blast.
This has lead people to suspect there was an additional terrorist involved even though perpetrators Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols had been convicted, with two others later identified as accomplices.
So who was the possible additional bomber? they still remain unidentified now 25 years after the attack.”
