The Jeffrey Dahmer Crime Scene - like you never seen

The Jeffrey Dahmer Crime Scene - like you never seen

1980

Unspeakable Crimes. Violence. Rapes. These are the terrible atrocities in the life of the infamous cannibalist sequential killer Jeffrey Dahmer. What We Can Learn from his case... The case of Jeffrey Dahmer is maybe the most famous cold case ever. Unfolding plot twists, ignored warning signs, and blatant oblivion led police and the public down a swirling rabbit hole of death, doom, and utter confusion. Dahmer was arrested later in 1991, 13 years after he killed and many victims. Jeffrey Dahmer was born in 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At young age, he became fascinated by things related to death and began collecting the carcasses of dead animals. His father noted how his son was “oddly thrilled” by the sounds of clanking animal bones. When he was... Read More

Carl Tanzler, or Count Carl von Cosel, was a bacteriologist at the United States Marine Hospital in Key West, Florida. He asserted that amid his youth and later life, he had dreams of a dead precursor who uncovered to him the substance of an outlandish dim haired lady as his intimate romance.

The Russian Sleep Experiment

The Russian Sleep Experiment

1940s

Russian researchers in the late 1940s kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn't kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and five inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month. The test subjects were political prisoners deemed enemies of the state during World War II. Everything was fine for the first five days; the subjects hardly complained having been promised (...

Mystery of the Jamison Family Disappearance

Mystery of the Jamison Family Disappearance

.

Mystery of the Jamison Family Disappearance Bobby and Sherilyn Jamison, and their six-year-old daughter Madyson, went missing in the Red Oak Mountain area of southeast Oklahoma in October 2009. Over 100 people were enlisted to search for the Jamison family, but no sign of them was found until November 2013, when the skeletal remains of two adults and a child were found in the woods, face down and side-by-side, roughly three miles from where their vehicle had been abandoned. It wasn’t until July 2014 that these remains were positively identified as the Jamison family, though a cause of death was never determined. Rather than provide closure to the Jamisons’ friends and family, it just raised questions as to what really happened to the them.  The... Read More

Charles Manson, Leader of Murderous Cult, Dead at 83

late 1960s

A career criminal, amateur musician, enigmatic cult leader and unrepentant racist, Manson became synonymous with the dark underbelly and ominous end of the Sixties. The two-day killing spree he orchestrated in August 1969 left seven people dead and, as legend has it, sprang from his mad interpretation of the Beatles' White Album – specifically the song "Helter Skelter" – which he believed foretold a coming apocalyptic race war.A career criminal, amateur musician, enigmatic cult leader and unrepentant racist, Manson became synonymous with the dark underbelly and ominous end of the Sixties.

Miranda Barbour, The Craigslist Killer

Miranda Barbour, The Craigslist Killer

November 2011

A woman accused of a single Craigslist murder admitted to the killing and then went on to reveal… "Alex" (who requested to remain anonymous) met Miranda three years ago in the adolescent ward of a behavioral health facility, where the teens were each seeking treatment for their issues. In the wake of 19-year-old "Craigslist killer" Miranda Barbour's shocking confession—that she murdered at least 22 people as a member of a satanic cult—authorities and her family are questioning the veracity of her claims. But a friend of Barbour's believes her, telling Jezebel, "She has maintained [the same] solid story for three years now."  "I would imagine that [Miranda] was admitted for self-harm, depression, and suicidal tendencies, as she suffered...

No Eyes (They Drink My Blood)

No Eyes (They Drink My Blood)

2011

Have you heard the story of the no eyes? It’s a tale that some say is too terrible to tell, but pull your seat closer to the campfire and I will reveal the terrifying legend. The San Bernardino Mountains contain a lot of wilderness regions which saw substantial activity about 100 years ago. Here, miners and loggers worked to bring materials down to the Los Angeles basin. But, like most industries of that time, there was a high profit motive, and workers lives were not as important as they were now. One day, a mine tunnel collapsed, trapping a number of men within. They were able to survive, after a fashion, by drinking water which seeped into the tunnels, eating rats, mushrooms, and their dead co-workers. They worked from within to dig themselves out, confident... Read More

The 5 most Creepy Suicide Jumpers Pictures

2015

Jumping from height can be a very effective method of suicide (providing it is from sufficient height), it does not account for a particularly high percentage of suicides in either the US or the UK. Having said that, in Honk Kong it accounted for over half of all suicides in 20061, so easy access to tall buildings seems to impact the propensity to use this method. The most important factor in suicide by jumping is height Stone states that jumping from 150 feet (46 metres) or higher on land, and 250 feet (76 metres) or more on water, is 95% to 98% fatal. 150 feet/46 metres, equates to roughly 10 to 15 stories in a building, depending on the height of one story. 250 feet is the height of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

The Ferocious Murder of Sylvia Likens, the TRUE story

The Ferocious Murder of Sylvia Likens, the TRUE story

1965

Gertrude Baniszewski lived in Indianapolis with her seven children. Since she had a tiny income, Baniszewski took in children for the Summer to earn extra money. In 1965, she agreed to board sixteen years old Sylvia Likens and her sister Jenny, who was a year younger. They were the children of two circus workers who were about to go on tour operating a concession stand. Jenny was disabled and could not move about very much (Gertrude Baniszewski cynically thought that a 'cripple' would be an undemanding boarder); perhaps the Likens' decision to spare their daughters from the wandering lifestyle of the circus was influenced by Jennie's condition? Perhaps they wanted time by themselves to patch up their marriage? Their relationship had been through a bad patch (... Read More
