From attic-dwelling killers to phantom babysitters, we count down 10 insanely creepy true stories.

10. The Hatchet And Daniel LaPlante
Daniel LaPlante is one nasty fellow. LaPlante was sentenced to life in prison after he murdered Priscilla Gustafson and her two young children in New Hampshire in 1987. The mother was shot multiple times. The children were strangled or drowned. LaPlante was just 17 years old at the time of this despicable crime, and it wasn’t his first dance with the law. In 1986, a younger version of LaPlante terrorized a man and his children with a hatchet. He hid in a closet while they were away and chased them into a bedroom when they returned. Luckily, they managed to escape through a window. LaPlante was found hiding between two walls in the home a few days later. In 2013, LaPlante sued the state Department of Correction for violating his rights as a Wiccan.



9. A Visit From The Easter Bunny
This isn’t Charlie Brown’s Easter Beagle, that’s for sure. Reddit user Kittypurry83 says she had a most unpleasant encounter. When she was younger, she woke up in the middle of the night to see someone dressed as a bunny standing in her room. She could also smell wet hay. That morning, an extra Easter egg that her parents hadn’t hidden was found. Her parents swore up and down that they’d never do something like that, but her sister, who shared a room with her, confessed that she’d seen the bunny and smelled wet hay, too. To this day, Kittypurry83 is afraid of “people in rabbit costumes.”

8. The Woman On The Closet Shelf
In Japan, a man found himself dealing with a mystery in his own home. He lived alone and couldn’t understand why food was disappearing from his fridge. Fearing that he was the victim of a crafty (and hungry) burglar, the unnamed man installed security cameras that linked to his smartphone. What he discovered was truly shocking. A homeless woman named Tatsuko Horikawa had been living on a closet shelf and came out to eat while the homeowner was away. He hadn’t been able to detect her before because she was very neat and took regular showers. The woman was charged with trespassing.

7. The Cleveland Torso Murderer
Between 1935 and 1938, 12 people, and perhaps many more were beheaded by a serial killer dubbed the Cleveland Torso Murderer. Though some victims were recognized, most were drifters and members of the working poor, making their names hard to discover. Most males were castrated and some bodies had been treated with a chemical substance. Despite police efforts, the identity of the murderer was never pinned down. One theory claims that the murders were performed by multiple people. In 2013, NBC announced plans to produce a miniseries about the torso killer, but it never reached completion.

6. The Singing Children
Reddit user DruSparro has a true story right out of a horror film. While resting in bed with her fiancé, she experienced a sudden and uncomfortable feeling. The air was heavy. Her ears popped. Looking over at her betrothed, she discovered that it was happening to him, too. Out of nowhere, the doorknob to their bedroom started turning. Then, the singing started. DruSparro claims it sounded like a nursery rhyme but the words were unintelligible. The incident lasted 10 seconds and never happened again.



5. The Ghostly Babysitter
Talk about an unexpected visitor! To Reddit user ExcitedForNothing, it was just another ordinary day. His sister was away, leaving him with the task of caring for her home and watching his niece. All was well when ExcitedForNothing decided to step into the kitchen for a drink of water. His niece was giggling, a sure sign that the family dogs were nearby. That’s when it happened. A strange sound filled the air. In his words, it was like “a thick piece of wood had been snapped in half suddenly or a tree was knocked over.” Alarmed, he went back into the room where his niece was and saw something bizarre. The family dogs were whimpering in the corner and his niece was staring at the ceiling. When ExcitedForNothing’s sister came home, he told her the story. Her reaction? She simply rolled her eyes and said it was Hugh, the previous owner of the home. ExcitedForNothing watches his niece on his own turf now.

4. A Killer In The Attic
In September of 1941, Theodore Edward Coneys was at the end of his rope. He couldn’t bear another winter on the road. When he went to visit an old friend and noticed the front door was unlocked, he decided to venture inside. Nobody was around. This was his chance! He crawled through a hole in the closet and made it his new home. As time passed, Coneys became comfortable and started doing bold things like shadowing people from room to room. One day, Coneys went to the kitchen for some food, not realizing that his friend was napping nearby. That’s when the frail man was caught. When the friend tried to run for help, he hit him with a “stove shaker.” The friend was mortally wounded and Coneys was arrested.

3. The Haunted Hairdryer
Here’s a story sure to blow you away! When Reddit user Greenlink12 was in high school, their mother was experiencing sleep deprivation. When asked if everything was OK, she revealed a strange occurrence. Someone (or something) was leaving the hairdryer on in the bathroom. Whenever the mother unplugged it and went back to bed, it happened again. Was somebody sleepwalking? Was it all a dream? Nobody knows for sure.

2. The Zodiac Killer
Around the late ‘60s, someone went on a killing spree in Northern California, but nobody knew who they were. Known only as the Zodiac Killer, they sent taunting letters to local newspapers and included cryptograms for authorities to solve. Only one has ever been deciphered. The case was marked “inactive” in 2004.

1. What They Saw On A Country Road
Reddit user nana_nana_batman was cruising down a country road with a friend when a young boy ran in front of them. He appeared scared, so the friend decided to get out of the car and go after him. A few moments later, the friend came back and made it clear that they needed to leave. Why? The friend had followed the boy to a graveyard, where the boy promptly disappeared. It was later discovered that the boy had died in a fire decades before.

2. Allen Showery

10 Scary Cursed Objects Scientists Still Can't Explain

This list is full of mysterious objects like this so keep watching to find out the top 10 most cursed objects in the world.

10. James Dean's car
James Dean was an incredibly popular actor decades ago. Just before he performed in his most famous role, a lead role in "A Rebel Without a Cause," he had begun trying to kickstart a career in car racing. He competed in one competition before Warner Brother's banned him from taking part in any competition while filming for the movie "Giant." Unfortunately, this ban went unheeded and James Dean sadly crashed his Porsche 550 Spyder and died. But the story gets weird when we focus on the car in question. Famous actor Alec Guinness recalls looking at Dean's car, turning to James, and telling him he was going to die in it, and that it was a sinister car. After James died, George Barris bought the wrecked Prosche for 25 hundred dollars. Strangely, a mechanic broke his leg getting it off the trailer. The car parts were integrated into other Porsches, two of which crashed, killing one person and seriously injuring another.

9. Thomas Busby's Dead Man's Chair
Thomas Busby was a murderer who lived in the north of Yorkshire in the UK around the 1600s. Busby married Elizabeth, the daughter of a man named Daniel Awety. He and Daniel became friends and partners in crime for quite a while, though supposedly, Busby was always in the foulest of moods with Awety. One faithful day, Busby grew so angry with Awety that Awety actually made his way around Thomas Busby's inn and threatened to take Elizabeth home with him. What made the dangerous drunkard even more angry was that Awety was sitting in his favorite seat.

Busby threw him out, and later that night, went over to his house with a hammer and murdered Daniel Awety. He was sentenced to death for the crime. The legend goes that Busby cursed his favorite chair before he left to be killed and wished death upon all those that sat on it. Strangely enough, in 1894, a chimney sweep was found dead out near Busby's gibit. The sweep had sat in that cursed chair. Again, during the second world war, a team of RCAF men were goading each other to sit in the chair. None of the men would make it back home alive and were killed in the war. Once again in 1968, the soon to be landlord, Tony Earnshaw, reported hearing two Airmen daring each other to sit in the chair. They both reportedly crashed in a car on the way back to the airfield. Fortunately, the seat now hangs as an attraction in the Thirsk Museum so no one can sit on it.

8. "The Crying Boy" painting
There are a load of supposedly cursed paintings in the world, a lot of which reportedly bring death to those that own them. One particularly interesting painting is "The Crying Boy" painted by Giovanni Bragolin in the 1950s as part of a series. It proved to be quite popular in its time, but it turns out the owners of this painting were met with a strange and eerie set of events. Multiple owners of the painting have been reported to have suffered a terrible fire in their homes, two of which happened for the same reason: a chip pan became too hot and exploded. Many things were destroyed in the blaze, but in both instances, the painting remained untouched. The rumor then blew up even more as the firefighter claimed that he had been to fifteen houses where he found that painting completely untouched. "The Sun," a popular tabloid newspaper in the UK, ran story after story claiming more and more people had been sufferers of bad luck through owning the painting. It was concluded that the painting must've been printed on flame retardant material, but for those families back in the days of the 60s and 70s, the curse is all too real. Another more modern painting that has been claimed to be cursed also exists in the UK, and is entitled "The Anguished Man." There are a lot of cursed artists out there, by the sounds of it.

7. The skull of Katherine Griffith
Katherine Griffith lived in Burton Agnes Hall around the 1600s. Supposedly, the story goes that one afternoon, when the house was almost officially finished, Katherine was robbed by a group of thugs, who also beat her to death. She had told her sisters before she died that she would never rest until a part of her was safe in that house. Yet her sisters forgot about this, and she was buried in the churchyard. The house preceded to be haunted by her ghost. The sisters, realizing their mistake, sought to make peace with the vicar and asked if they can dig up their sister. The grave was dug up and Katherine's skull was brought into the house. After a while, many attempts were made to get rid of it but every single time, strange and ghostly things would happen around the house. It is believed that all these years after, the skull is still in the house, built into the walls. Thank God she's in the house, because she'd be causing a fuss if she wasn't.

6. Robert the doll
Robert Eugene Otto was the first owner of this doll, which resembles a boy with a sailor's suit on. His relationship with the doll was very questionable. Supposedly, a young Robert began to blame mishaps and accidents on the doll. Servants also reported that he had closed door conversations with the doll, saying they could also hear a deeper tone voice replying and conversing with the child. Robert's relationship with the doll continued into his adult life. He reportedly treated it like a real person, and the two of them were inseparable. After Otto's death, many people reported hearing giggling and footsteps from the attic and children that passed by Robert's house would often claim to see the doll move from the window regularly. Although the doll is locked in a glass case in a museum now, people still report that lights flicker, cameras malfunction, and tourists must ask to take a picture of Robert, or suffer dire consequences. Speaking of dolls that inspire movies, did you know that the Annabelle doll is also real? It looks a bit different that the one in the movie, but it's just as scary.

5. The Basano Vase
The Basasno Vase is probably one of the oldest artifacts in this list. It was carved from silver in the 15th century. The legend goes that it was a gift made for a bride who resided in the northern village close to Naples. However on her wedding night, the bride was found lying on the floor dead, clutching the vase. After the woman's funeral was sorted out, the vase began to be handed down from family member to family member, but with each person that decided to take ownership of the vase came another suspicious death. Some reports even state that the vase had a piece of parchment in it that read 'beware, this vase brings death,' but that it was thrown out very early on. An archeologist took ownership of the vase, only to die of an unknown infection. And one of the vase's last known actions was to nearly hit a policeman on the head as someone threw it out of a window. It was handed over to police, who tried to give it to museums, who all flat out refused to take it. After a while, it was buried in an undisclosed location. Some even claim it was considered so dangerous, it was buried in a lead coffin and put in an ancient cemetery. Whereever it is, let's hope it stays in the ground.

4. The Hope Diamond
It was supposedly stolen by a thief from the face of an idol standing by an Indian temple. The thief suffered a slow, agonizing death shortly after this. It was then uncovered again and was sold to King Louie the Fourteenth by a French merchant who soon met his death as well. Of course Louie and his wife Marie Antoinette are often referred to as victims of the diamond, as they were beheaded in the overthrowing of the monarchy. From then, everybody that was reportedly to have owned the diamond has suffered a horrible death. There are a lot of jewels that are said to be cursed, such as the Delhi Purple Sapphire, another jewel stolen from it's resting place and passed around owners. Each owner has reportedly suffered bad financial situations and health problems. When will we learn that jewels stolen from spiritual places can cause bad luck by the bucketful?

3. Maori Warrior Mask
The Maori people are the indigenous, or original inhabitants of New Zealand before settlers went over there. Their ancient practices remain a bit of a mystery to historians, but what we do know is the masks from those times were carved before battle. It was said that if the warrior died in battle, his soul would be encased in the mask forever. Sounds like just another silly story? Well at the Auckland Museum, the masks are accompanied with their own warning messages, and one Wellington based museum know as Te Papa, a Maori name that translates as 'Our Place' tells pregnant women to stay away from the tour of scared Maori artifacts, or risk incurring a curse. I would say it is all a bit silly to be true, but you never really know with the ancient and mystical cultures.

2. The woman of Lemb Statue
Those that know the history call if the Goddess of Death. Having been created around 35 hundred BC, many historians believe it was probably a statue representing fertility. Lord Oliphant was it's first reported owner after it's mysterious background. Within six years, all the members of his family were dead. It's next owner, Ivor Menucci and his family died within a shorter, 4 year period. And surprise, surprise, the third owner, a Lord Thompson Noel and his family and perished within four years as well. It vanished for a brief period, and within that period, it came into the ownership of Sir Alan Biverbrook who died along with his wife and daughters. The two sons of Alan that survived the curse donated the statue to the Royal Museum of Edinburgh and is now readily available for any brave tourist that doesn't believe in (coughs) silly superstition.

1. Petrified Forest National Park
This last one is an extremely interesting case of multiple cursed objects. The Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona has enticed and attracted visitors for quite some time now. It has one of the world's largest collections of petrified wood, which results in an amazing experience, as well as an educational one for those not familiar with the science behind wood. All throughout its history, people have taken bits of wood home as little souvenirs so much so that they made it a felony. But has that stopped people? Absolutely not. Around 1930, people who visited the park and took a piece of wood would complain of experiencing a lot of bad luck. It has since become part of the national park's history. In fact, there is a whole room at the park dedicated to the telling of bouts of bad luck, divorces, incarcerations, and deaths that have followed from a stolen bit of petrified wood.

1. Wrinkles The Clown
Urban legends surrounding clowns are less than positive, usually they involve someone going down the sewers having bad dreams or something that will cause you to have to go to therapy for the next 20 years. Websites are full of clown related urban legends that tend to pick up momentum on social media, then these stories end up perpetuating copycat incidents that once again end up on the news thus the never-ending cycle continues and the urban legend grows stronger. For example parents in South Florida were hiring a clown by the name of a Wrinkles to hide in their children's bedrooms and scare them at night. Why in the world would parents do this to their children? Well to scare them into behaving properly because nanny cams basically record everything that's happening videos began to surface of Wrinkles appearing under beds and placing stuffed animals next to the child before turning off the camera to wreak havoc, basically this is where horror movies get their ideas from. Granted this wasn't technically a crime, but it was likely that these parents probably got a visit from social services. Perhaps instead of saving for a college fund, and they need to put up a therapy fund for their child.

2. Penpal
Probably one of the most unsettling things one can experience is when they receive pictures of themselves in the mail from an unknown source, it forces you to realize that you're being watched, and there's nothing you can do about it. It forces you to realize that regardless of how protected you may think you are, you are still vulnerable. A story called Penpal made its way onto the website Creepypasta. It was about a boy who was participating in a school project where they released balloons to see if they can get a Penpal. The boy ended up not getting a letter. but instead he got tons of polaroid pictures. Initially they were blurry, but once he looked at all the pictures he realized he was in every photo. So it makes it all the more unsettling when there were true stories out there remotely similar to this seemingly urban legend. There was a story in Connecticut of a school principal named John Bean who was following his students to Walmart and taking their photo. In North Carolina a school's volunteer of the year got in trouble for taking pictures of elementary school girls without their permission. Walter Shore ended up pleading guilty to some pretty awful charges

3. Slender Man
Spoiler alert: this won't be the last time you hear about Slender Man It's amazing how a made-up character managed to inspire some pretty intense crimes We'll start off with the most famous crime where two young girls who lured their friend into a park bathroom and proceeded to do her in like Julius Caesar. Miraculously the girl survived. Why did the two girls do such a heinous crime they wanted to sacrifice their friend to Slender Man, so that they could go live with him in his mansion. Well as we know, Slender Man isn't real and he's based on a meme from creepypasta. the mansion actually came from a video game That was inspired by Slenderman. So he know that preteen girls aren't always the smartest people in the world, but did they really think that they were going to get away with such a terrible act? One of the teens was sentenced to 25 years in a mental hospital. If she was so gullible to do this to someone for the sake of an urban legend ,that's probably the best place for her.

4. Laughing Jack
You know what would really lift up our spirits? Let's talk about clowns again! Yay!! The story of Laughing Jack is definitely not for the faint of heart. Laughing Jack is basically an imaginary friend. Who is the opposite of nice. He infiltrates children's dreams very much like Freddy Krueger, and he replaces their organs with candy. Ain't that nice? Anyway,  of course you could read the story online and be able to tell right away that it's just a scary story And an urban legend. Yet one girl thought that Laughing Jack was the real deal. Apparently instead of being filled with candy, Laughing Jack told the girl to pretty much end the life of her stepmother the twelve-year-old not only did her stepmother in, but she also set the apartment on fire. The kid actually ended up admitting that she committed the crime. And she was eventually declared too incompetent to stand trial. That basically means that she'll be spending the rest of her adolescent in a psych ward.

5. Walking Sam
Walking Sam is a similar entity as slender Man, who drove teens from a Sioux tribe in South Dakota to harm themselves. Basically the urban legend has a few variations were Walking Sam is either wandering the earth to collect souls or he drives people mad because he looks so spooky. Either way Hundreds of people between the ages of 12 and 24 attempted to end their lives. The local tribe even had to remove nooses that were placed at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Out of those hundreds around nine people were sadly successful at their attempt. While one can say that the author of Walking Sam's story is an incredible storyteller. It is also Alarming at how gullible an entire generation can be? But because it's the Internet and a lot of people don't know how to distinguish fact and fiction. It's entirely possible that people thought this was the real deal.

6. The Call
The urban legend goes like this. There's a babysitter working the late night. She gets a call from a mysterious caller who says "Have you checked the children?". There might be some heavy breathing for a few calls and of course the babysitter is scared. When she calls the cops they trace the call and the big twist is that the call is coming from inside the house. This urban legend was inspired by an unsolved case from 1950 in Missouri. An 8th grader named Janett Christman lost her life one night while she was babysitting a three year old boy. She was later discovered at 1:00 a.m. Too late. Calls had been coming to the house, but unlike the urban legend, the police weren't able to trace them. The boy Janet was babysitting was thankfully safe. This story is often told at slumber parties as well as camp outs. Some have even tried to emulate the urban legend only to run-in with the police afterward.

7. Constant messaging
We've all heard that iconic urban legend, where a man is receiving Facebook messages from his long past girlfriend. It made us all wonder whether the girlfriend was actually alive she turned into a bot or she was a ghost still checking her social media from beyond the grave. However one man seemed to be inspired by the ghost messaging and decided to use it to try to get away with a heinous crime. Todd Colhab kidnapped a woman named Kayla Brown as well as her boyfriend Charles Carver. In order to make it look like Kayla and Charles were fine and enjoying life, Todd was posting on their Facebook pages, posing as them. There were status updates and everything. However, when deputies were searching Todd's property and ready to serve a search warrant. They passed a metal container and Kayla made a bunch of noise. She was found inside the container with a collar around her neck and chained like a dog. Sadly Charles did not survive the crime.

8. Pope Lick Monster
This might be better categorized in the people who do stupid things for urban legends. The Pope Lick Monster is a goat human hybrid creature that lives on top of a bridge above a railroad track. Legend has it that the public monster will hypnotize its victims and draw them to the tracks where they will get hit by a train. If you think that there aren't people curious enough to check it out for themselves, think again. There have been a startling amount of people who have lost their lives looking for the Pope Lick Monster. Most of them end up getting hit by an oncoming train. So in this instance would this be more truth than urban legend? Well the local police in Louisville Kentucky had to issue public statements declaring that anyone looking for the Pope Lick Monster will be trespassing plus in the United States wandering the train tracks can be considered a federal offense and receive charges of terrorism. So is it really worth looking for this terrifying urban legend?

9. Don't turn on the light
One of the creepiest urban legends is of a person in their bedroom hearing strange noises. When they wake up the next morning, they see a horrifying message written in bodily fluids that says "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?" It's a story that has given us nightmares and inspired us to check every nook and crevice in our house before going to sleep. But this story did inspire someone to try it out for themselves. In 2016, a teenage girl from England received a text message. That said "I'm watching you.". She also got a text that said that he would end his life outside her bedroom window. The teen was so creeped out that she decided to sleep with her mom. She also didn't take the sender seriously when he said that he was in the house, but the next morning the sender was discovered to be in the house. He was sleeping under her bed.

10. Slenderman... again
It seems that some of the most horrifying crimes have been inspired by the one and only Slender Man. With his tall and faceless persona, you would think that people would automatically know he isn't real or they'd head for the hills. There are a lot of people who are willing to risk their freedom and personal safety for the sake of the iconic urban legend. In 2014 a 13 year old girl heard her mom repeatedly with a knife.The mom miraculously survived. Then a 14 year old girl from Florida tried to burn her house down for Slender Man. If you think Slender Man is only hitting up the teenage girls He also inspired a man named Jared Miller to attack two police officers and a civilian before he took his own life. Investigators found out that he liked to dress up a Slender Man for fun.

The Mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

On the 5th December, 1945, 14 navy airmen left Florida and took to the skies in 5 torpedo bombers, on what was supposed to be a routine 2 hour return flight as part of a training exercise, known as Flight 19. But 1:45 minutes into the journey, the flight’s leader, Lieutenant Charles Taylor, radioed the control tower, alerting them that something was dreadfully wrong. Taylor reported that all 3 of his compasses had malfunctioned. He was heard over the radio transmission reporting “we don't know which way is west. Everything is wrong. Even the ocean doesn't look as it should”. Flying over the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean in what’s now called the Bermuda Triangle, the flight and crew, shortly lost contact with the control tower and were never seen again. Later that evening a search plane was sent in a desperate attempt to locate the missing flight and guide them back to base, but just 27 minutes after take off, the search plane and its 13 man crew became lost to the Bermuda Triangle.

Surreal activities in the Bermuda Triangle have been reported since 1492, when the crew of explorer Christopher Columbus edged ever closer to what he would call, ‘The New World’. Columbus’ log reported seeing strange lights, whilst the sea took on an eerie calm before rising high without wind. He also noted that the ship’s compass gave erratic readings, which panicked the already restless crew. Situated in between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, the legend – do you mean the phrase? – of the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ was coined by author Vincent Gaddis, in a 1964 article in the magazine Argosy, to explain the perceived phenomenon of airplanes and ships going missing without a trace, without explanation. He was compelled by mysteries such as Flight 19 and the USS Cyclops, which got lost at sea off the coast of Barbados in 1918, resulting in the loss of 306 lives: the biggest loss of life in US Navy history, not related to combat.

Gaddis reported that the Bermuda Triangle is a true mystery and that even the ‘U. S. Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard investigators have admitted they are baffled’. In the last century alone 1,000 ships & planes have disappeared without a trace within the 500,000 square miles of the Bermuda Triangle. Despite no wreckages to attain evidence from, there are endless theories about the disastrous paranormal mechanisms involved in the Bermuda Triangle. The area surrounding the Bermuda Triangle has one of the highest incidences of UFO sightings, leading some conspiracy theorists to conclude that missing aircraft fall victim to alien abductions or are even absorbed by portals to other dimensions. This has been suggested to be the case in explaining the story of the Ellen Austin, an American vessel that found a deserted schooner on the Atlantic Ocean. In order to capture the schooner for themselves, members of crew from the Ellen Austin agreed to man the ship back to shore, but during the journey the two ships separated and when the re-united the schooner was once again deserted, the crew of the schooner had once again vanished without a trace.

Author Gian Quasar believes that electromagnetic anomalies in the area's atmosphere have been responsible for historic compass breakdowns. He describes the electronic fog as ‘something that will seize the aircraft and travel with you… You are not flying into the fog, it is flying with you’. This is further supported by Floridian pilot Bruce Gernon, a claimed survivor of the Bermuda Triangle. He describes the Bermuda Triangle as an engulfing ring-shaped electric fog. As he flew through the fog, he was stripped of his visibility and his electronic and magnetic navigational instruments malfunctioned causing his compass to spin wildly. Gernon only managed to break through the supernatural fog when he noticed a tunnel forming in the cloud, when he broke out he had reached the coast of Miami, leaving Gernon to conclude that the cloud he’d flown through was a time vortex.

Whilst some conspiracists look to the skies of the Bermuda Triangle for answers, others believe that the answers lie deep underwater. With the discovery of the submerged rock formation known as the Bimini Road, off the island of Bimini in 1968, conspiracy theorists Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, have come to believe that this formation is man-made and therefore evidence of the underwater city of Atlantis. It has been suggested that the planes and ships that have vanished in this area, may have been affected by leftover technology from this empire such as the ancient crystals thought to have powered the civilisation. Despite the mystery that surrounds the Bermuda Triangle, the U.S Coast Guard state that the majority of disappearances can be attributed to human error or the area’s unique natural features and no studies have found conclusive evidence for unusual magnetic anomalies in the area. The Gulf Stream essentially acts as a river within the Atlantic ocean, it flows through the Straits of Florida into the North Atlantic and it’s powerful current is a possible explanation for why there is no debris from ship and plane wreckages, which may be swept away by the Gulf Stream, erasing any evidence of disaster.

10 Most Deadly Serial Killers in Ancient History

10 Most Deadly Serial Killers in Ancient History


From French cult leaders to a Prince, we countdown the Top 10 Most Deadly Serial Killers in Ancient History by their kill count.


10. Maria Swanenburg
Known for murdering her victim’s to claim their insurance and inheritance, Maria killed at least 27 people, and up to 90. The numbers differ so much because she killed using arsenic, a type of poison. So there were many cases she couldn’t be accounted for, but was suspected of doing.

9. Liu Pengli
Years into being Prince of Jidong, Liu turned arrogant and cruel to his subjects. He began going on expeditions with slaves or young men, murdering his subjects and taking their belongings. He was known across the land for these cruel acts, where he saw it as a sport. It has been confirmed that his kill count is over 100, and once the emperor heard of it, he was banished, his land taken and his title stripped.

8. Thug Behram
Known as the king of thugs, Buhram Jemedar was a part of a thug-like cult. The murder-robbers of India preyed upon innocent travellers, and after gaining their trust, would strangle them using a ceremonial handkerchief. He died of hanging.

7. Gilles de Rais
Once, he had served in the army and fought in the 100 year war. Granted the position of Marshal of France, he fought alongside Joan of Arc, and later retired. All his wealth he had invested in re-enactments of himself, and in 1432 he was accused of participating with occultists, killing children. Over 140 children were murdered, and after a violent incident with a clergyman his murders had come to light. His neighbours, the parents of the children he had killed, testified against him. He was hanged in 1940. There is much speculation about the matter as many believe the judges who tried him were pro-english, whilst he was French.

6. Alexe Popova
Women who were unhappy would come to Popova for help, and she did. In 30 years she poisoned the husbands of unhappy women, killing 300 men. She was executed by the firing squad.


5. John Johnston
Starting in 1843, after his wife was killed by Crow warriors he started a personal vendetta against them. He murdered, scalped and ate the livers of 300 crow warriors, but some historians think this number to be inflated.

4. Peter Niers
A part of the Holy Roman Empire, bandit leader Niers had tortured and killed 544 people. Along with the murder of 24 women and the use of their babies in black magic. Ewww.

3. Elizabeth Báthory
Between 1585 and 1610, Bathorny was convicted of torturing and killing servant girls, giving her the name “Blood countess”. She was imprisoned and her accomplices executed until her own undoing in 1614.

2. Giulia Tofana
Over a 50 year period she admitted to poisoning and killing 600 men. Thought to have invented the Aqua Tofanaa, an undetectable poison, she had said on the day of her execution she helped unhappy women in marriages get rid of their husbands, in some cases, free of charge. Yikes.


1. Catherine Monvoisin
Cult leader, poisoner, and alleged sorceress, Monvoisin confessed to the mass killing of over a thousand infants. Not only that, she also tried to poison Louis the 14th but was caught, convicted and burned at the stake in 1680.

10 Terrifying Female Serial Killers You Never Knew Existed

10 Terrifying Female Serial Killers You Never Knew Existed


When you think of serial killers, you most likely think of men. However, it might surprise you to learn that some of the worst have been female. Here are 10 terrifying female serial killers you never knew existed.



10. Leonarda Cianciulli
Often referred to as the Soap-Maker of Correggio, Leonarda Cianciulli was born in Montella Avellino, Italy, on November 14, 1893. After suffering three miscarriages and losing 10 of her own children in their youth, Cianciulli became understandably overprotective of her four surviving offspring. She began a killing spree in 1939 with the belief that if she scarified enough souls, her son would remain safe while away at war.

After gaining the trust of three separate victims, she drugged them and killed them brutally with an ax. The first two women she killed, Cianciulli dissolved and dumped the remains, but used the coagulated blood as an ingredient for tea cakes, which she served to guests and consumed herself. She turned the third victim's body into soap. Cianciulli was arrested and tried for murder in 1946. She eventually died on October 15, 1970, before she could make anyone else her victims.

9. Karla Homolka
The wife of Paul Bernardo, potentially the most infamous killer in Canadian history, Karla Homolka was born on May 4, 1970 in Port Credit, Ontario, Canada. Between December 24, 1990 and April 19, 1992, she along with Bernardo were responsible for the sexual assault and murder of three minors, two of whom were abducted teenagers. Her first victim was her own sister Tammy, who Homolka drugged and presented to her new husband as a wedding gift on Christmas Eve.

Unfortunately, Tammy vomited while unconscious from the drugs and asphyxiated. Homolka initially claimed the she was forced to perform these incredibly heinous acts by her abusive husband, and even managed to secure a plea deal with the Crown Attorney prosecuting Bernardo's case. However, it was later revealed via video evidence that Homolka not only participated in the disgusting actions, but initiated many of them.

8. Anna Maria Zwanziger
On August 7, 1760, Anna Maria Zwanziger was born in Bavaria, Germany, where she grew up into the life of servanthood as a housekeeper. At 41, she became the housekeeper for a judge, whom she poisoned with arsenic only to nurse him back to health. She would later confess that she did this in order to gain his trust, and proceeded to go through the process at least two more times with other judges she began caring for.

In total, Zwanziger killed four people through the use of poison, one of them being a baby that was in her care. She was finally arrested on October 16, 1809. For her crimes, Anna Maria Zwanziger was beheaded with the swipe of a sword in Nuremberg, Germany on September 17, 1811. But just prior to the execution being carried out, she was quoted as saying it was a good thing she was being killed, as she didn't she herself could stop killing others. Talk about twisted.

7. Maria Swanenburg
Born in Leiden, Netherlands on September 9, 1839, Maria Catherina Swanenburg began her murderous career at 41 years old, her first victim being her own mother, who she poisoned with arsenic. Soon after that, she took the life of her father in a similar manner. Swanenburg went on to poison at least 100 more people, all while under the guise of a helpful individual who would care for the sick, elderly, and even children.

It's said the main reason she took so many lives was for insurance and inheritance money, though she seemed to also get a sick pleasure out of it. Suspected of killing more than 90 people, only 27 victims were ever proven to have lost their lives by her hand. Of those, 16 were Maria's own family members. She was caught in December of 1883 and sentenced to spend the rest of her life in a correctional facility, where she died at the age of 75 on April 11, 1915.

6. Jane Toppan
Also known as her serial killer identities The Angel of Death and Jolly Jane, Honora Kelley was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1857 to Irish immigrants. When Honora was still a child, her mother died and her father went insane, so she was taken in by the Toppan family, who changed her name to Jane Toppan. After becoming a nurse in the late 1880s, Jane began selecting elderly victims whom she would dose with morphine or atropine before climbing into their bed and holding them while they died.

Jane later admitted that she got a sexual thrill from watching helpless people die, and she claimed that she wanted to kill more helpless people than any other man or woman who ever lived. Even though she took more than 31 lives and was caught on October 29, 1901, Jane was found not guilty by reason of insanity and was sent to Taunton Insane Hospital, where she stayed until her death in 1938.



5. Helene Jegado
Born in 1803 on a small farm in Plouhinec, a commune in Brittany, France, Helene Jegado became a domestic servant after her mother died in 1810. After 23 years of being a servant to priests, Jegado took an interest in poisoning people's food, killing seven people in the homes she served in, including her own sister. By the time she was 32 years old, she had taken the lives of at least 17 people, though her ability to convince people that she was mourning kept her out of suspicion.

Jegado was not arrested until July 1, 1851, when she prematurely announced her innocence to investigators who hadn't accused her yet. Though she committed at least 36 murders that authorities could prove, French law allowed them to only prosecute three of them. Still, Jegado was found guilty of three counts of murder, which was enough for her to be sentenced to death. Helene Jegado was executed by guillotine on February 28, 1852, a fitting end for a horrific monster.

4. Darya Saltykova
Born on November 3, 1730 in Moscow, Russia, Darya Saltykova inherited her husband's estate when he died in 1755, an estate which included a number of serfs who worked there. It wasn't long after she took over the residence that complaints of cruelty and disappearances began circulating, most of the victims being young female serfs. Sadly, those complaints were ignored by authorities, some of who punished the person giving them.

Between 1755 and 1762, Darya tortured, mutilated, and killed a large number of her staff, only to be caught when a petition finally got the attention of Empress Catherine II, who had Darya arrested. Saltykova was imprisoned until she died on December 27, 1801, at the age of 71. Though it's known that she definitely took the lives of 38 people, it's been reported that the number could be as high as 147.

3. Juana Barraza
Possibly the most brutal and intimidating female murderer in the history of Mexico, Juana Barraza was born on December 27, 1959, and is known for two things. The first is being a wrestler under the ring name The Silent Lady, and the other being a serial killer called the Old Lady Killer. Barraza would target women who were over the age of 60, usually ones who lived alone.

She would pose as a government official or other visitor in order to gain the trust of her victims and gain access to their house or apartment. It was there that she would strangle and beat them to death before stealing anything valuable that she could find. The Old Lady Killer operated from 1998 until 2006, mostly due to the mishandling of the case by police. Barraza was found to have committed between 42 and 48 murders. And on March 31, 2008, she was sentenced to almost 800 years in prison.

2. Miyuki Ishikawa
Also known as the Demon Midwife, Miyuki Ishikawa was born in Kunitomi, Japan in 1897, and was responsible for the deaths of numerous infants and newborns. Beginning in April 1944, Miyuki used her role as the director of a maternity hospital to help parents who couldn't financially support their babies by letting the infant pass on due to neglect.

Then, a doctor would give out falsified death certificates while her husband tried to get what little money the parents had as payment. At the time, abortion was illegal in Japan, yet the local authorities refused to look into the actions, or lack thereof, that the midwife was taking. Then on January 12, 1948, two officers accidentally stumbled upon the remains of five infants and Miyuki was arrested. In under four years, the Demon Midwife had already claimed over 103 lives. But despite that, incredibly Miyuki only served four years in prison for the murders.

1. Elizabeth Bathory
Elizabeth Bathory is not only considered the worst female serial killer of all time, but even tops the most notable male killers on the list of most devastating murderers of all time. And that's really not surprising when you learn that she was responsible for 650 deaths. Born to a noble family in Hungary on August 7, 1560, Bathory married at only 15 years old and took over her husband's castle as he went off to war. She began her murderous ways in 1584, luring young peasant women to her castle, promising to pay them for work but ultimately torturing, killing, and in some cases eating them.

It's been documented that Bathory believed that she could absorb life from her victims' blood, and is considered to be the world's first vampire. Her noble status kept her from being tried until 1610, when she was finally caught. And on August 21, 1614, Bathory died in a windowless room, never to drink the blood of innocents again. But that's all for this episode.
