10 Insanely Creepy True Stories

10 Insanely Creepy True Stories


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.

10 Incredible Crimes Committed in the Name of Love

10 Incredible Crimes Committed in the Name of Love


From the Paris tragedy to the parachute murder, we count down 10 incredible crimes committed in the name of love.



10. The Diabolical Mother
Diane Downs was willing to do anything to win over the married man she loved. In 1983, Downs ran into an emergency room and announced that her three young children had been shot by a “bushy-haired stranger.” One was dead and the other two were seriously injured. Police warned the public to be on the lookout for the shooter, but it quickly became evident that something was funny about the mother’s story. It turned out the man didn’t want to be with a woman with kids, and Downs decided to take matters into her own hands. She was sentenced to life in prison plus 50 years.

9. The Paris Tragedy
On a March evening in 1914, Henriette Caillaux entered the office of newspaper editor Gaston Calmette and shot him four times with a pistol, mortally wounding him. The reason behind this dirty deed? Caillaux feared that Calmette would publish letters revealing she’d been her husband’s mistress before they married. At her trial, Caillaux claimed her “uncontrollable female emotions” were responsible. Shockingly enough, she was acquitted.

8. The Wife’s Revenge
When Texas resident Clara Harris found out about her husband’s affair, she was determined to do everything she could to keep him. She went to a tanning salon, dyed her hair, and started working out. That still wasn’t enough, so she hired a private detective to keep an eye on him. Things finally turned violent when Harris confronted her husband at a Hilton hotel and slammed into him several times with her car. He died from his injuries and Harris was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

7. The Woman Who Sacrificed Her Daughter
In 1954, Jacques Algarron asked Denise Labbe to prove her love for him by killing her two-year-old daughter. Her first three attempts were a dismal failure, but she finally managed to drown the little girl in a washtub. In court, the couple hurled insults at each other. Labbe called Algarron “a devil incarnate” and Algarron claimed the woman was crazy. Labbe received life in prison and Algarron got away with a 20-year sentence.

6. The Poisoner
When Martha Wise’s family pressured her into ending a relationship with Walter Johns, she retaliated in the worst way. On Thanksgiving Day in 1924, several members of her family suffered terrible stomach pains, and the number of victims continued to grow. Before Wise was caught, 17 people were poisoned with arsenic. Three passed away.



5. The Parachute Murder
While skydiving in Belgium in 2006, Els Van Doren’s primary and reserve parachutes failed to open. She didn’t survive the fall. When police inspected 38-year-old Doren’s equipment, it was discovered that the parachute cords had been cut. It soon came to light that Doren was involved in a strange love triangle with skydiving instructor Marcel Somers and another woman named Els Clottemans. Tired of sharing Somers, Clottemans wanted to take her rival out of the picture – permanently. In 2010, Clottemans was found guilty of murder and walked out of court with a 30-year sentence.

4. The Trial Of The Century
After rejecting the advances of millionaire Harry Kendall Thaw, Evelyn Nesbit revealed that she’d been molested by an architect named Stanford White. Thaw was upset, but he continued to pursue her and the couple eventually wed. While attending a stage show in 1906, Thaw spotted White in the area and took his revenge. He produced a pistol and shot White several times, killing him instantly. The two trials that followed the event caused a media frenzy. Thaw was sent to the Matteawan State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

3. The Chat Room Murder
Thomas Montgomery thought he’d found love with fellow chat room member Talhotblond, also known as Jessi. When his wife found out about the cyber affair, she sent a letter to Jessi explaining that he was married and old enough to be her father. Horrified, Jessi broke off the relationship and switched to Montgomery’s younger co-worker, Brian Barrett. Montgomery wasn’t happy. On September 15, 2006, Barrett was shot and killed as he left work. The terrible twist in all this? Talhotblond was actually a woman named Mary Shieler. The real Jessi was her daughter, who had no idea what was going on.

2. The Love Triangle
Sarah Ludemann and Rachel Wade both had their eyes on 19-year-old Josh Camacho. The struggle was bitter for the Florida teens, and something was going to have to give. After they taunted each other for months through text messages, it finally came down to a face-to-face confrontation. Unbeknownst to Ludemann, Wade had a steak knife with her, and she stabbed her rival in the heart. Ludemann died and Wade was charged with second-degree murder.

1. The Beauty Salon Shooting
In 2002, Rena Salmon shot and killed her husband’s pregnant mistress. She was furious that Paul Salmon had started divorce proceedings, and she wanted the other woman to suffer. The incident took place in a beauty salon in Chiswick, West London. Salmon was given life imprisonment for her action.

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.

The 10 Smartest Serial Killers of All Time

The 10 Smartest Serial Killers of All Time


Your next door neighbor may not be exactly who you think they are. You might think serial killers are lower intelligence individuals who are not smart enough to know the difference between right and wrong, but the terrifying reality is quite the opposite. These are the 10 smartest serial killers of all time.

1. Ted Kaczynski
Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on May 22nd, 1942. As a child, Kaczynski was academically gifted, and in the fifth grade he received an IQ score of 167. His high intelligence got him accepted to Harvard at only 16 years old. During his time there, he took part in brutal psychological testing that was meant to study stress. This experience and his young age are believed to have contributed to him becoming socially isolated. He went on to earn his Ph.D and was a professor at Berkeley, but his belief that humanity was becoming immoral and controlled by technology led him to go off the grid.

For 18 years, he lived in a cabin in the woods of Montana where he built small bombs, sending them to targets across the United States. The bombs, which were impossible to trace back to Kaczynski, killed three people and injured 23 more. It was only because his own brother recognized his handwriting on a published copy of his manifesto that the FBI captured Kaczynski on April 3rd, 1996. He is still in prison serving a life sentence.



2. Carroll Cole
Born on May 9th, 1938, in Iowa, Carroll Cole was considered to be extremely intelligent with an IQ of 152. But his terrible home life and developing mental issues eventually turned him into a coldblooded serial killer. Cole's mother was incredibly abusive. She would make him watch her entertain men and would beat him constantly. Cole committed his first murder as a child when he drowned one of his classmates.

As an adult, he would commit his crimes while in a violent rage, including strangling an 11-year-old girl. He spent time in and out of prison and mental hospitals, but once he was released he started drinking and would kill women that he met that reminded him of his mother. In November of 1980, Cole was finally caught and confessed to 14 murders, but there are possibly even more that he couldn't remember. He was given the death penalty and died by lethal injection on December 6th, 1985.

3. Jack the Ripper
There are tons of theories as to who Jack the Ripper really was. From a local surgeon to possibly Queen Victoria's grandson Prince Albert, nobody knows. But one thing is for sure, he was highly skilled and knowledgeable in human anatomy. The infamous, anonymous serial killer murdered at least five women in the Whitechapel district of London, England, between 1888 and 1881. The murders were often extremely gruesome with the bodies left horrifically mutilated, complete with organs missing.

The state the bodies were found in convinced many that he could have been a surgeon or even a butcher. During the time of the murders, hundreds of letters, supposedly from the killer, were sent to the press. Most of them turned out to be fakes, but a few very likely were sent from the man himself, including one signed Jack the Ripper. One even correctly promised details of the next murder. Jack the Ripper seemed to disappear after his final murder of Mary Kelly, and despite developments in forensic technology, he evaded police and was never identified.

4. H.H. Holmes
Herman Mudgett, also known as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes or H.H. Holmes, was born on May 16th, 1861, in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. Holmes moved to Chicago in 1886 and purchased a lot where he started to build a large hotel dubbed by locals The Castle. During the contruction process, Holmes would frequently hire and then quickly fire entire teams of construction workers after sections of the hotel were completed.

This was all part of his grand plot, because he didn't want any of the workers knowing the full picture of the building plans, which in reality was that the second floor was to become a massive murder complex. This true house of horrors was basically a murder maze, complete with soundproof rooms, doors that led to nowhere, bedrooms linked with gas lines, and torture chambers. The hotel was up and running during the 1893 World's Fair which was ideal since people were less likely to notice a few tourists amongst thousands going missing. He was eventually caught and hanged in 1894, but not before he killed an estimated 200 guests.



5. Andrew Cunanan
Andrew Cunanan was born in National City, California, on August 31st, 1969. He was a gifted young man with an IQ of 147 and was apparently fluent in seven different languages, but he also had a passion for the high class lifestyle and was obsessed with fame. During the 1990s, he would frequent gay clubs in San Francisco and eventually began prostituting himself to wealthy, older men and began using hard drugs. Then, on April 25th, 1997, he began a three-month murder spree that took the lives of five men.

However, he taunted police, taking them on a cross country manhunt. Cunanan was quickly put on the FBI's 10 most wanted list before returning to Miami and reentering the party scene. Then, on the morning of July 15th, 1997, Cunanan shot and killed famous fashion designer Gianni Versace outside his home without any clear motive. And eight days later on July 23rd, the FBI finally tracked him to a houseboat, but he committed suicide, shooting himself before he could be arrested.

6. The Zodiac Killer
During the late 1960s, the Zodiac Killer had the citizens of northern California living in terror. Between December 1968 and October 1969, the Zodiac completely baffled law enforcement with a series of five confirmed murders though it's believed he could've been responsible for many more. Between 1969 and 1974, the Zodiac Killer began to contact the media and investigators.

He sent a series of letters over the years, including four ciphers, but despite attempts from some of the smartest people in the world, only one has ever been solved. The Zodiac claimed if the ciphers were ever solved, he would reveal his identity and would help police find him. The one decoded cipher revealed his motive for the murders was simply fun. It also revealed that the victims would become his slaves in the afterlife. No suspect has ever been named, and no one has ever been charged. The case remains open to this day.

7. Israel Keyes
Israel Keyes, born January 7th, 1978, in Richmond, Utah, was a former soldier in the U.S. Army honorably discharged in 2001. However it was later discovered he was linked to the murders of at least 11 people with more killings possibly committed outside of the United States. He spent years studying famous serial killers, including Ted Bundy, all in an effort to perfect his own murderous methods and avoid detection. Unlike most killers, investigators were unable to profile him because he never murdered close to home or even in the same area twice.

He would fly all over the country and drive for thousands of miles to collect his so-called murder kits that he had hidden years earlier. The kit consisted of things like plastic bags, shovels, and cleaning chemicals. He would choose his victims at random to avoid falling into any predictable patterns and would rob banks to fund his jet-setting murder sprees. When he was caught in Texas on March 13th, 2012, he confessed to some of the killings, but on December 12th of that year, he killed himself while in his prison cell awaiting trial. It would appear justice was never served on this monster.

8. Edmund Kemper
Edmund Kemper was born in Burbank, California, on December 18th, 1948, and was diagnosed as a criminally insane juvenile after he murdered his grandparents at the age of only 15 years old. While serving time in an institution, he received a score of 145 on an IQ test but was also diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and psychosis. He put his intellect to use when he managed to study the psychological evaluation tests at the institution and memorized the correct answers.

This allowed him to fake his sanity and earn an early release into society when he was only 21 years old. However only a couple years later, he began a horrifying killing spree. Kemper, who was six foot two and 250 pounds, got the nickname the Co-Ed Killer after he kidnapped and murdered six young women between May of 1972 and April of 1973. His spree ended on April 20th, 1973, when he murdered his mother and her best friend, after which he phoned the police and calmly confessed. He was sentenced to life in prison on November 3rd, 1973.

9. Rodney Alcala
Born in San Antonia, Texas, on August 23rd, 1943, Alcala is a convicted serial killer who murdered at least eight women and potentially up to 120 more. Early on, Alcala was recognized for his exceptional intelligence with an IQ score of 160. In 1978, during his crime spree, he was a contestant on the show The Dating Game and was chosen as the winner. Luckily his date decided not to go out with him after she met him and thought he was different.

Alcala told his victims he was a photographer and would lure them to remote locations promising to make them famous. When he was caught on July 24th, 1979, police found over 1,000 photos of young women and boys, many of whom have never been identified. Alcala's attorneys managed to overturn guilty verdicts and death sentences twice, but during his third trial in 2010, Alcala defended himself and he was finally found guilty on all charges.

10. Ted Bundy
Born in Burlington, Vermont, on November 24th, 1949, Ted Bundy was a psychopathic serial killer with a high IQ of 136. Bundy spent time studying criminal investigators and psychology in order to perfect his methods, becoming one of the most infamous killers of all time. He was extremely adept at using his good looks and natural charisma to lure in unsuspecting victims. He would often pretend he was injured or an authority figure to gain a woman's trust before he would attack them. Bundy would take care to hide or change distinct features of his appearance, making it difficult for witnesses to recognize him.

He also never left any fingerprints or conclusive physical evidence at crime scenes and never used guns. He murdered a total of 36 women, though possibly many more, until he was finally caught on August 16th, 1975. He even acted as his own attorney and made two escapes while in custody, one from the prison library during a recess in his own trial. But ultimately he was caught and given the electric chair on January 24th, 1989. This finally putting an end to one of the Earth's most notorious killers.

How Islamist Militant Groups Are Gaining Strength in Africa

How Islamist Militant Groups Are Gaining Strength in Africa


These are violent attacks recorded in Africa in the first 5 months of 2018. Many are by groups fighting in the ongoing civil wars in South Sudan and the Central African Republic. Others are riots against governments in southeastern Africa. But these are different. They’re attacks Islamist militant groups. Some claim to be branches of the Islamic State.

While others claim to be al-Qaeda; Both groups are usually associated with the Middle East. But for the past decade, Islamist militant groups have been spreading across Africa, where they've continued to find places to organize and launch attacks. Their success has pushed these fragile states into deeper turmoil and it's made the region one of the most dangerous in the world. To understand how these terrorist groups got to Africa and why they’re so successful there, it helps to start in Nigeria. Nigeria has the biggest population and economy in Africa. Wealth, industry, and major cities are mostly in the south. While the north is poor, marginalized, isolated, and home to most of Nigeria’s Muslim population. It was here that a radical Islamist group called Boko Haram took shape and turned violent in 2009.



They started razing villages, slaughtered men and women, and kidnapped children who were forced to carry out suicide attacks. The Nigerian government cracked down, but the group continued to grow. In 2014, they got international attention when they kidnapped close to 300 school girls in Chibok. Bring our girls back! 276 are out. By then, they controlled a huge swath of territory in northern Nigeria where they imposed strict Sharia law and declared it an Islamic caliphate.

In 2015 they became affiliated with the Islamic State, which had a caliphate of its own in Iraq and Syria. Within a few years, the group killed nearly 25,000 people, and was on track to become the deadliest terror group in the world, eventually surpassing ISIS. 5 African countries backed by the US, UK, and France formed a task force to battle Boko Haram. By April 2015 they'd liberated major towns and seemed to push Boko Haram out. But three years later, Boko Haram is still active. The group had shifted its focus to the Lake Chad region, one of the poorest places in the world. The lake touches the borders of Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon , but none of the state governments have any real presence here. This is where Boko Haram is operating. They’ve been raiding local villages for food and capturing men to serve as fighters.

In 2016, the group split into two. As Boko Haram’s attacks grew more and more violent, this group, the Islamic State West Africa (ISWA), started offering protection to villages in danger. They also provided stability and even water supplies to a region collapsing under a food crisis, in exchange for a tax and recruits. In the absence of a strong central government -- they’ve moved further into Nigeria and Niger where they've launched attacks of their own and are officially affiliated with the Islamic State. Exploiting and terrorizing locals in ungoverned areas has become a successful strategy, keeping these militant groups active. But it doesn't stop here.

The strategy is being used by terrorists all across the continent. Lake Chad is part of the Sahel; a narrow band of territory that stretches across north-central Africa. The conditions that make Lake Chad ideal for Boko Haram and ISWA extend across this whole region. The population is mostly Muslim and vulnerable. Ethnic conflicts are rampant. Food is scarce. Poverty is rife.

And most importantly, there’s almost no presence of a government . Islamist militant groups have been filling these spaces at a staggering pace. 7 years ago Islamist militant groups took over northern Mali and declared it a caliphate for 10 months before a French military intervention drove them back into the desert. Today, they’ve banded together and are affiliated with al-Qaeda. A group called ISGS broke away and is now affiliated with the Islamic State.

This part of Mali remains ungoverned and violent 7 years after the intervention. Both of these groups are fighting for various militias in the conflict. Meanwhile, both are also attacking foreigners, including the French Embassy in 2018 and the 2017 ambush of US Special Forces in Niger. Fox News is learning that 12 US soldiers, mostly Green Berets, were ambushed by a larger force of ISIS-linked militants. Islamist militant groups are finding success in other ungoverned spaces as well. ISIS claims to have launched 10 attacks in 2018 in Libya, where a civil war has raged since 2011.

In Somalia, an ISIS-affiliated group split from al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda group. It’s made this whole part of Africa one of the most dangerous places in the world. The US and France have both stepped up their presence with several military bases across the Sahel. But drone strikes and Special forces alone are not the solution to the Islamist terrorism in Africa. As long as there are places with poverty, conflicts, and no government terrorists groups will be here. will be here.

What Are the Most Terrorized Countries

What Are the Most Terrorized Countries


Terrorist strikes in the West get wall to wall coverage on mainstream media. In 2016, attacks in Brussels, Nice, and Orlando made headlines for weeks and even months. So it may come as a surprise that these countries actually see far fewer terror attacks than others. Which got us thinking, which countries experienced the most terror last year? First, it’s important to define a terror attack as an intentional act of violence that includes an economic, social, or religious goal, and is not directly within the scope of an active war. We’re also looking at information from 2016, since 2017 data isn’t available yet. Third on our list is India.

In 2016, India saw more than 1,000 terror attacks, predominantly in the disputed Jammu-Kashmir region, parts of which are claimed by India, Pakistan, and even China. One event that grabbed headlines, was an attack against the Indian military by an extremist group known as lashkar-e taiba.



That attack left more than 20 people dead. The group, which is based in Pakistan and originally funded by Osama Bin laden, was also responsible for the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks. India has also struggled with left wing terrorism. A Naxalite–Maoist group called the Communist Party of India has been fighting the government since 2004, particularly in poorer regions of the country. The second most terrorized country was Afghanistan, with about 1,600 attacks in 2016.

In October 2016, a taliban attack in Kunduz killed over 150 people. According to testimony in the US House Foreign Affairs Committee, terrorism in Afghanistan is on the rise. Although the United States invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 was able to topple the militant leadership of the Taliban, many of its fighters fled to neighboring Pakistan, or reformed into splinter groups. Other groups like the Islamic State of Afghanistan, and al-Qaeda are also operating in the region with little government or military oversight.

Across the board, terrorism in Afghanistan is focused on removing the US’s presence and re-establishing a militant Islamic state. And last we have Iraq which comes in as the most terrorized country in 2016 with more terrorist attacks than India and Afghanistan combined. There were over 3,300 attacks in that year.

In August 2016, a suicide bomber killed nearly 400 people at a shopping center in Bagdad. And what’s even more horrifying, is that over 12,000 people have been killed in these types of attacks in just that one year. To break that number down, that’s about 33 people dying at the hands or terror every single day. Iraq remains extremely unstable because of destabilizing US interventions, the emergence of ISIS, and fighting between local militias that are all vying for control.

ISIS in particular, has been responsible for the largest attacks in the country. While the total global number of terror attacks has dropped slightly, these regions have seen little relief. Most frustratingly, the overwhelming majority of these attacks are completely unreported in Western media. And in spite of increasing efforts by the US government to secure Afghanistan and Iraq, the instability of those countries has been devastating to their populations. Another country that has experienced a lot terror, but rarely makes it into western headlines is Somalia.
