She was transported to Fosston Hospital where doctors said … Continue reading Frozen Alive

The I-70 Killer

Between April 8th and May 7th 1992 six store clerks were shot to death in broad daylight across the Midwestern states of Indiana, Missouri, and Kansas. Each incident occurred only a few miles away from Interstate 70.

The I-45 Killer(s)

Since the 1970s over 30 bodies have been recovered in and around a small section of land close to Interstate 45, several miles north of Houston, Texas. Many of these bodies were those of murdered young women, leading investigators to believe an unidentified serial killer remains at large.

The I-4 “Dead Zone”

A stretch of Interstate 4 outside of Orlando, Florida is rumored to be haunted. The ghosts are said to be those of a family of German immigrants who died of yellow fever in 1886. The family burial plot was near the St. John’s River, a spot which would eventually be paved over to make way for I-4. High rates of fatal accidents along this stretch … Continue reading The I-4 “Dead Zone”

“Don’t fucking sleep on the side of a deserted road.”

About two years ago, I was driving home from a family reunion pretty late at night, and the drive was about two hours. I didn’t stay the night because I had to be back for work the following day. Most of the drive was on roads with dense bushes and trees on either side – the real creepy ones you see a lot in movies. … Continue reading “Don’t fucking sleep on the side of a deserted road.”

A Missed Stop

This is a true story, told to me by a man who had been working as a murder investigator for over 30 years at the time. I was told this story after asking what the creepiest case he’d ever been involved in was. This happened in northern Scandinavia in the late ’80s, in a part of the country that is mostly covered in dense pine … Continue reading A Missed Stop

Don’t Take The Bus

This didn’t happen to me but I was involved in it. The victim was actually my girlfriend and I got the story later. At the time my girlfriend and I were attending college together. It was a smaller school in a pretty quiet place so most of the students were from the area. My girlfriend, Caitie, was one of those. I came from a distance … Continue reading Don’t Take The Bus

Woman In The Burlap Shawl

About 15 years ago my mom and cousin were coming home from visiting my aunt who lived 2 hours away. The drive takes you through the desert and up some mountains but there is a shortcut you can take to avoid the mountains and shave about 10 minutes off your drive time, only problem is the shortcut takes you literally through the middle of nowhere. … Continue reading Woman In The Burlap Shawl
