Jerome of Sandy Cove

On September 8, 1863, a frightening discovery was made on the beach of Sandy Cove in Nova Scotia. Alongside a large rock was man with both legs amputated and only partially healed.

Nora Quoirin, Found Dead In Malaysian Jungle

Nora Quoirin, 15, disappeared while on vacation at a Malaysian jungle resort. She starved and died of intestinal rupture, say Malaysian police, who have ruled out foul play in her death.

No humans are allowed on Snake Island and with good reason. There’s about one deadly snake per square foot on it.
