The Bass Strait Triangle

This mysterious part of the world runs from the southern coast of Victoria in Australia over the stretch of water that is the Bass Strait and into the mysterious regions of Tasmania. Jason Manifold While most of the bizarre accounts on this list are connected to the Bass Strait itself, several times, these encounters have seemingly wandered onto the mainlands. Perhaps the most famous of these incidents is the case of Fred Valentich. On the […]

His Lovers? Or His Victims?

This is creepy, at least I always thought it was. I was working in a big grocery warehouse, hundreds of people worked there, it was night shift, sitting in a break room at lunch with a couple of other guys trying to find something to talk about to stay awake. I started talking about the best jobs I’d ever had. After a minute or so this older guy who never ever said more than a […]

“Shhh”

When my kid was five or six he used to complain sleeping in the living room when visiting grandma. He said all the people walking around kept him up. He later clarified the “people going up and down the stAirs” were keeping him up…….the stairs in the kitchen that are behind a door leading up to the attic. You have to slide a board out of the way to actually and fully go up into […]

Might sound weird but I had been to this area many times and it was quite safe. Anyway I brought my camera and took lots of pictures. When I came back and developed my film, […]

The Tromp Family

The Tromp family were by all accounts a normal, hard-working household. Mark Tromp, 51, and wife Jacoba, 53, had established a successful redcurrant farm and earth-moving business at their property in Silvan, on the outskirts of the Victorian capital, Melbourne. But with little warning, on Monday 29 August they and their three adult children – Riana, 29, Mitchell, 25, and Ella 22 – got into a car and headed north. They didn’t just leave their […]

The Silent Twins

On April 11, 1963, the twins June and Jennifer Gibbons were born in Aden, in the Middle East, to parents Gloria and Aubrey Gibbons, who were from the Caribbean nation of Barbados, shortly after which the family immigrated to Haverfordwest, in Wales. The two young girls were faced with severe hardship from the beginning, as they were the only black people in their neighborhood, and so faced consternation, avoidance, and even downright aggressive racism, none […]

This Number Has Been Disconnected

A few years ago my brother would get a call on his cellphone around 2:00 – 3:00 A.M. every night. He would answer and it was this hellish sounding noise. Like static mixed with screams. He changed his cell number after a month of this and it stopped. Then after a week or so it began again. The exact same noise. Exact same time. Finally one day he decided to backdial the call. It was […]
