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.

Creepypasta are essentially internet horror stories, passed around on forums and other sites to disturb and frighten readers. The name "Creepypasta" comes from the word "copypasta", an internet slang term for a block of text that gets copied and pasted over and over again from website to website. Creepypastas are sometimes supplemented with pictures, audio and/or video footage related to the story, typically with gory, distorted, or otherwise shocking content. The internet urban legends known as creepypastas had a breakout year in 2016 as the internet-based folklore tales took off, thanks in a large part to Syfy’s new anthology horror series, Channel Zero, which took on individual stories for the small-screen. This sudden spotlight came... Read More
Murray’s car was found abandoned on February 9, 2004 in Haverhill, New Hampshire by State Police responding to a call by a concerned bus driver. The bus driver came upon the crash, and a seemingly uninjured Murray told him she had called AAA (even though she hadn’t) and didn’t need his help. The driver left the accident and alerted police when he got home. It was a February day in 2004 when UMass Amherst student Maura Murray took a spontaneous trip toward the White Mountains. She told no one where she was going when she emptied her bank account, packed up her things, and hit the road. Just as quickly as her road trip started, it abruptly came to an end that evening when Murray crashed her car on a rural New Hampshire street. She has never been seen again.... Read More
On May 27, 1980, thirty-two-year-old secretary Dorothy Jane Scott dropped her young son Shanti off at her parents' house in Anaheim, California and went to a company meeting. While there, a coworker named Conrad Bostron complained of pain so severe that Dorothy offered to take him to the hospital with another coworker named Pam Head.

After a few minutes, Pam looked out the window and noticed Dorothy's car exit... Read More
In February of 2013 Elisa Lam had been missing for two weeks. She had been staying in the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. Hotel guests started complaining about a foul taste in the water and low pressure. On February 19th Elisa Lam's body was found inside a covered rooftop water tank. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning. Pretty gross that the guests were drinking a decomposing body. A couple of aspects of this story are very mysterious. Elisa was seen on security video entering an elevator. Elisa presses all of the buttons in the elevator and appears to be waiting for someone. The elevator door won't close, which usually means that something is blocking the track. Elisa steps out of the elevator and you can see her talking to someone and waving her hands... Read More
