Who the hell is living inside my wall?

Who the hell is living inside my wall?

2013

"I'm currently staying at a friends house.. Here's why. I moved into a house about a year ago. The previous owners built the house in the early 2000's, and moved to India two years ago. This picture above shows my parents' room. Then the other day, we found this. What the fuck. My little brother and me were messing around, and I pushed him into the shelf. When he fell, he pulled out the bookshelf with him. We always assumed it was just built into the wall. There's a fucking spiral staircase in here. So we went down.. bad idea. Here's a shot of what it looked like from the top. At the bottom, the stairs led into a wall. Seemingly pointless, right? This crawlspace was about halfway down. It looked empty, but if you crawled in... Read More

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... Read More

Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm

The Story of Bella in the Wych Elm. Unbelievable.

1943

On April 18, 1943, four boys were out poaching in Hagley Wood, located in the village of Hagley in Worcestershire, England. There, they found a witch-hazel tree (sometimes mistaken for a wych elm), which they thought would serve as a good place to hunt for bird nests. One of the boys, Bob Farmer, climbed up to check it out. That’s when he found a hollow opening in the tree’s trunk. A pair of empty eye sockets from within stared back at him, and at first he thought it was just the skull of an animal. He reached in and picked it up. It was human. A small fragment of skin and hair clung to its rotted surface, and crooked human teeth were clearly visible. Farmer dropped the skull back into the hollow trunk, and the four boys ran back to town...

Elisa Lam, wanna know the truth?

2013

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... Read More

The MacKenzie Poltergeist in Edinburgh

The MacKenzie Poltergeist in Edinburgh

1998

In December of 1998, a homeless man wandered through Edinburgh’s storm-lashed streets. Seeking shelter from the night’s downpour he staggered into Greyfriars Kirkyard and broke into one of the old mausoleums in the Covenanter’s Prison section—no doubt attracted by its intact roof. Inside, the vault was pitch-black and the brave (or foolhardy) vagrant decided to explore his surroundings with what meagre light he possessed. He removed an iron grate in the floor and descended a short, twisting, stone staircase and entered a second chamber. There, he came across four wooden coffins. Perhaps looking for valuables to steal, the man began to smash open the dusty caskets. As he did so, a hole suddenly opened beneath his feet and he fell through a wooden... Read More

Gloomy Sunday - Rezso Seress

Gloomy Sunday, Hungarian Suicide Song

1932

At the point of happiness or depression, we surely would like to accompany ourselves with music. Music serves us right in each moment of everyday. As defined in Webster, music is the art of combining sounds or sequences of notes into harmonious patterns pleasing to the ear and satisfying to the emotions. Reading the definition itself, music has the power of influence. It has been playing important roles in history until today – from being an icon of unity to source of entertainment or foundation of pride and honor as it gives distinction to people and countries. Even, music could end a life or hundreds. Gloomy Sunday is a great example. Let’s get to know this controversial music – its composer, origin and more. In 1933, a Hungarian named Rezso... Read More
