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. It is likely that she survived for six or seven days and suffered a slow and agonising death as trackers desperately tried to find her in the dense jungle. It appears Nora, who had special needs, was found dead could have been found alive […]

Staten Island Mysterious Missing Father – Solved not Resolved

When the answer finally came, after 45 years of heartbreak for a Staten Island family with a mysteriously missing father, it brought more questions than closure.

The 1,000-foot ship began her life when the first keel plate was laid in 1930 at the John Brown shipyard in Clyde, Scotland. The Depression held up her construction between 1931 and 1934, but she was finally completed, making her maiden voyage on May 27, 1936. But, when World War II broke out […]

Dyatlov Pass Incident

On the surface, what’s become known as the Dyatlov Pass incident seems fairly explicable: Of a party of ten skiiers, nine perished in the middle of a high-difficulty trek in conditions that reached -30 degrees Celsius. But the details, which are mostly based on diaries of those involved as well as records from Soviet investigators, are chilling: On the night of February 2, 1959, members of the party apparently ripped their tent open from the […]

Great Aunt Buried Alive

My grandma (born in 1905) once told me a story about when she was a kid, probably around 1912 or so. One of her great-aunts died at home. It was a rural community so they didn’t bother to get a doctor in, and in the tradition of the time the body was laid out at the house to let relatives pay their respects. Normally you’d have to worry about the body beginning to decompose, but […]

She was traveling from Canada when she went missing and the conspiracy theories take off from there. The case of Elisa’s death is full of coincidences and weird details that do not seem to fit. People who do not believe that the case was solved correctly. The case also inspired several different reenactments and even a few […]
