19th September 1934, five year old Dorothy Distelhurst left her school to walk home, but never arrived. Authorities were notified and spent the next several days searching for the little girl, but found no trace.
Once the national media began focusing on Dorothy’s case, her family started receiving mysterious ransom letters. The authorities were unsure if the ransom letters were legitimate, or were inspired by the publicity.
The most extreme ransom letter stated that Dorothy would have her eyes burned out with acid if her family did not pay $175,000.
On November 13th, two employees of the Davidson County Tuberculosis Hospital were busy digging flower beds in a remote corner. Until they stumbled upon something truly horrifying, the mutilated body of five year old Dorothy Ann Distelhurst. Her skull had been crushed, and her personal belongings and some of her clothing were found a short distance away. Creepiest thing was, her face had been burned away with acid, just like the ransom letter had threatened.
Despite an extensive search, Dorothy Ann Distelhurst’s killer was never caught, her case remains unsolved.
Irish born Amy Fitzpatrick, 15, was babysitting with her friend, Ashley Rose on the 1st of January 2008 at Ashley’s home in Mijas Costa in Malaga, Spain. At 10pm that night, Amy said goodbye to Ashley and headed for her home on the urbanisation Riviera del Sol in Mijas Costa, near Fuengirola. She should have arrived home at around 10:10pm, as her house was only a short walk, however Amy Fitzpatrick never returned home.
In August 2008, Amy’s mother’s partner, David Mahon, and her lawyer had their home in Riviera del Sol broken into. A laptop that was used in the search for Amy had been stolen, along with Amy’s mobile phone. The 32 year old lawyer, Juan Jose de la Fuente Teixido said the burglars got into his property by forcing a locked gate, he also stated he believed the robbery was related to Amy’s disappearance because the files about Amy were financially worthless yet the burglars left all the expensive valuables such as TV’s, music equipment and computers.
In June 2009, a year and a half after Amy’s disappearance, Amy’s mother, Audrey Fitzpatrick, received a phone call from a man claiming to know the location Amy was. Audrey described the unknown caller as having an African accent asking her if she was Amy’s mother. He went on saying he knew where she was. He said she had been kidnapped and was in Madrid, and that the police were not to be involved. Audrey complied with his request and he said he would call back with a name and address in two hours. Five hours later and she received a text saying “can you pay us 500,000 euro. Yes or no send your answer now and will send you all the info you need.” Audrey Fitzpatrick gave the numbers of the mysterious African caller and the number the text was sent from, to investigators who then followed them up. Unfortunately, the two phone numbers were pre-pay and had never been registered.
In May 2012, it was beleived that Amy was murdered by infamous Irish gangland killer, Eric “Lucky” Wilson. Amy’s parents beleive this to be a credible piece of information, however, no body has been found as of yet.
In 2013, in Coolock, Dublin, Amy’s brother was stabbed to death in an incident involving Audrey’s partner, Dave Mahon. This is currently being investigated.
Despite everything strange that has happened since Amy Fitzpatrick disappeared, nobody has ever heard of or seen her since that fateful new years night in 2008, and she still remains missing. Audrey is still holding out hope that her daughter is still alive.
Cameron Macauley was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Since the age of two years old, he began telling his mother he was from Barra, a small Scottish island off the west coast of Scotland.
Cameron told her about a white house on the island and about a beach on which planes landed. He said he had owned a black and white dog, and that his father was called Shane Robertson; who had died after being hit by a car.
Cameron began drawing pictures of the white house by the beach and complained of missing his other mother. After Cameron had become more upset about missing Barra, his mother decided to take him to visit Barra, which was an hour long plane journey. Upon arriving in Barra, the plane landed on the beach.
The Macaulays found a white house, owned by the Robertsons. Cameron knew his way around the house, and could point out all its peculiarities. The black and white dog Cameron remembered was in a family photograph, along with a car he also remembered. But the Robertsons never recalled Shane.
Cameron has since lost his memories of his possible past life as he’s grown older, but he is convinced death is not the end. He stated that he ended up in in his mothers tummy after falling through a hole.
This supposed reincarnation is one of the most documented stories after Cameron’s case was picked up by British television.
Zebb Wayne Quinn disappeared at 18 years old from Asheville, North Carolina. He is considered ‘endangered missing.’
Zebb and his friend, Robert Owens, were going to look at a car Zebb wanted to buy after Zebb finished his shift at Walmart at 9pm. As they drove in separate cars, Zebb flashed his headlights signalling Robert to pull over. Zebb told Robert he had received a page and needed to return the call. After Zebb came off the payphone, Robert described him as ‘frantic.’ Zebb told him he needed to cancel their plans to go look at the car he was going to buy. He then jumped in his car and drove away, never to be seen again.
Two weeks after Zebb Quinn had gone missing, his car was found parked near the hospital his mother worked at. A pair of lips were drawn on the back windscreen and there was a live mixed Labrador puppy inside the vehicle! More strange things were found inside the vehicle, including a hotel key card police couldn’t trace, and drink bottles and a jacket that did not belong to Zebb Quinn. Police collected forensic evidence from the car, but have uncovered no new leads.
So whaddya think? Lips drawn on the windscreen and a live puppy inside the car, could these be potential repetitive patterns a serial killer would use? Either way, Zebb Quinn remains missing. Robert Owens is apparently a person of interest in the case, although there is no solid evidence to tie him to Zebb’s dissappearance.
Can only do text posts on my phone (I’ll add photos when I get to a computer), so im gonna post some creepy disappearances and real life encounters to get under the skin ;p
Mysterious disappearances fascinate me, but this one is the one that really got under my skin! (long but worth it!!)
Amy Bradley was vacationing with her parents and brother on the cruise ship, ‘Rhapsody of the Seas’ in March 1998.
At around 5:30am on March 24th 1998, Amy’s brother left her sitting on the outdoor balcony when he returned to his cabin. She was seen a short time later riding in an elevator by another passenger, she was seen with a member of the ship’s band ‘Blue Orchid.’ He was simply known as ‘Yellow.’
The ship was en route to Curacao, Antilles at the time she was last seen. Shortly before the cruise ship docked in Curacao, it was discovered that Amy Bradley was missing.
As investigation of her disappearance began, things were strange. The cruise ships photo service that sold photos of the passengers, mysteriously ‘lost’ every single photo of Amy Bradley from their database 9 to 10 hours after Amy disappeared. Out of thousands of passengers aboard the ship, photos of Amy were the only ones that had vanished.
The first sighting of Amy Bradley took place in Curacao sometime in August 1998, 5 months after she disappeared. 2 Canadian tourists reported seeing a woman walking along the beach with two other men flanking her. When the woman heard the tourist speaking English she ran towards him, but before she even spoke, she was grabbed by two men and lead into a cafe. As the mysterious woman was lead away, she pointed out her tattoos to the tourist, her tattoos matched those of Amy Bradley’s.
Now things get weirder. Later, in 1999, an American sailor reported visiting a brothel in Curacao and was approached by a young woman. She told him her name was Amy Bradley and that she needed help. Before the sailor had time to react, two men came and escorted the woman upstairs. By the time the sailor had reported this to the police, a few months later, the brothel had mysteriously burned down.
The last potential (in person) sighting of Amy Bradley was in 2005 in Bridgetown, Barbados. A woman named Judy Mawer was in a shopping mall restroom when she heard two men burst in shouting things like “a deal is coming through, you need to obey to not mess it up!” When the men had left, Judy came out of her cubical and found a woman, who the men had been threatening. Judy comforted the woman, who appeared to be in her early thirties, and was extremely distraught. The woman then told Judy her name was Amy, and that she was from Virginia. Suddenly the men burst back into the restroom, dragging the woman away as Judy ran. Judy described the woman and her two captors to the FBI, who compiled sketches of the three. This was the last time anyone came in contact with Amy.
Pictures were discovered in 2004-2005 on a website advertising prostitutes in the Carribbean, of a woman named only as ‘Jas.’ ‘Jas’ bared a strong resemblance to Amy Bradley, which strongly suggests she could have been sold into sexual slavery. You can find the comparison between Amy and ‘Jas’ here; http://i.imgur.com/BX4PchS.jpg (photo is not mine.)

Despite 3 possible encounters with Amy Bradley, sketches of her captors, and very convincing photos that she may be in the sex trade, Amy Bradley has never been seen since, the same is to be said for her captors.
6 year old Morgan Nick & her mother, Colleen Nick, went to a Little League baseball game in their hometown of Alma, Arkansas on June 9th 1995. At around 10:30pm Morgan asked her mum if she could go and catch lightning bugs with a few of her friends. Colleen was reluctant, but chose to let her go.
Morgan’s friends last saw Morgan at 10:45pm, emptying sand from her shoes beside her mothers car. They also claimed to see a “creepy man” talking to Morgan around the time she was last seen.
Morgan’s friends returned to Colleen and told her Morgan was still at the car, but when she got to her car, Morgan was gone.
Morgan Nick has not been seen or heard from since, and the “creepy man” remains unidentified.

Location - The Antarctic
Species - Humanoid
Habitat - Antarctic waters
The legend of the Ningen began after rumors circulated in Japan about the existence of gigantic humanoid lifeforms inhabiting the icy Antarctic seas. Reportedly observed on multiple occasions by crew members of government-operated “whale research” ships.
These so called “Ningen” are said to be completely white in colour with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters. Eyewitnesses describe them as having a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five finger hands. Other times they are described as having fins or a large mermaid-like tail instead of legs. The only visible features are the eyes and mouth. According to one account, crew members on deck observed what they initially thought was a foreign submarine in the distance. When they approached, however, it became clear from the irregular shape of the thing that it was not man-made — it was alive. The creature quickly disappeared under the water.
To date, no solid evidence has been presented to confirm the existence of the Ningen. The government is believed to have kept detailed records of the sightings, but they have released no information to the public and have reportedly instructed eyewitnesses to remain silent.
This photo is of a female serial killer named Ruth Snyder being executed by electric chair, and is one of the most famous execution photos ever taken.
Ruth Snyder began an affair with Henry Judd Gray, a married corset salesman, in 1925. Henry and Ruth began to plan the murder of her husband, Albert, although Henry appeared to be unsure of the idea. Ruth’s vendetta against her husband began over him insisting on hanging up a photo of his late fiancee, Jessie Guishard, on the wall of their first home, although she had been dead for ten years.
Ruth persuaded her husband to purchase insurance, but with the assistance of an insurance agent “signed” a $45,0000 life insurance policy that paid extra if an unexpected act of violence killed the victim. According to her accomplice Henry Judd Gray, Ruth had attempted to kill her husband 7 previous times before, all of which he survived. On March 20th, 1927, the couple garroted Albert Snyder and stuffed his nose full of chloroform-soaked rags, then staged his death as a burglary gone wrong. Detectives at the scene noted that the burglar left little evidence of breaking into the house; moreover, that the behavior of Mrs. Snyder was inconsistent with her story of a terrorized wife witnessing her husband being killed.
Then, the police found the property Ruth claimed had been stolen—still in the house, but hidden. A breakthrough came when a detective found a paper with the letters “J.G.” on it (it was a memento Albert Snyder had kept from former love Jessie Guishard), and asked Ruth about it. A flustered Ruth’s mind immediately turned to her lover, whose initials were also “J.G.,” and she asked the detective what Judd Gray had to do with this. It was the first time Gray had been mentioned, and the police were instantly suspicious. Gray was found upstate, in Syracuse. He claimed he had been there all night, but eventually it turned out a friend of his had created an alibi, setting up Gray’s room at a hotel. Gray proved far more forthcoming than Ruth about his actions. He was caught and returned to Jamaica, Queens and charged along with Ruth Snyder.
Ruth Snyder was sent to Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York. At the murder trial of Albert Snyder, Ruth and Henry turned on eachother, contending the other was responsible for killing Albert Snyder, they were both convicted and sentenced to death.
Ruth Snyder became the first woman executed in Sing Sing since 1899. She went to the electric chair only moments before her former lover. Her execution was caught on camera by a photographer, Tom Howard, who’s camera was strapped to his ankle. He took this photo as the electricity was powering through her body.
