The Alaskan Triangle

The tropical waters around Bermuda may feel like the opposite of Alaska’s frigid wilderness, but both places have something in common: unexplained disappearances. Thousands of tourists, residents, hikers, and airplanes have vanished without a trace in a large area of land called the Alaskan Triangle, encompassed by Juneau, Barrow, and Anchorage. In 2007, state troopers reported about 2,833 disappearances. For a state with a population of more than 700,000 people, this suggests one in about a couple hundred people disappeared in Alaska […]

Fayetteville was and is a small town, with a main street that doesn’t run longer than a hundred yards, and rumors always played a larger […]

Prom Night

Johnny left his friend’s house late at night and headed home down the dark country roads. It began to rain. Suddenly, Johnny saw the blurry image of a woman in a long, white dress walking down the middle of the road. Johnny had to stop, so he asked the young woman if she needed a ride.

Gone for good

My dad told me about people who disappear in the forrest Gone, vanished. No foot prints in snow, no trail in grass.

Some bodies are terribly mutilated, and others are never found. This is the third time I’ve heard about something related to […]
