The world can be a scary place.

Heather Teague
Heather Teague

"In the mid 1990s, a girl named Heather Teague was kidnapped from rural Newburgh beach in Henderson County, Kentucky. The entire tri-state area was on full alert. She had been tanning naked on the beach alone and allegedly was meeting someone there. A man with a telescope saw her kidnapped by a bald man with a beard while he was watching her from across the river in Newburgh, Indiana. Her remains have never been found. The primary suspect committed suicide when the sheriff was coming to talk to him, and his wife still won't speak of it. There rumors have circulated. Around the time of her death, a concrete porch was poured at trailer in Bluff City, perhaps holding her remains, but the owner of this trailer recently died of a heroine OD. A long standing rumor was that she'd been thrown down a well in Robards, but a recent search turned up nothing. It's also been rumored that she was simply fed to hogs at a farm in Smith Mills.
Motivations for the kidnapping have never been ascertained. Some say it was to pay a drug debt. Some alleged that the Cornfield Mafia or Cornbread Mafia were involved. Heather was 23 at the time of her kidnapping. In recent years, there have been kidnappings of women of similar build and physical appearance of Heather. A few of these women have been found alive, but not all have been so lucky. It's quite possible there's a serial killer who strikes infrequently in the area." (Source)

Child's Play
Child's Play

"A little boy was taken from his mother in a shopping centre by two little boys and murdered in the most brutal way. The boys who took him were only 10 and 11 and the little boy was two. That was twenty years ago and the two murderers are out now and have new identities. That's by far the worst thing that happened in my neighborhood. Yeah, it was in Liverpool. They had watched a child's play movie if I recall. They poured paint in his eyes and put him on a train track, and a train severed him in two. Its shocking. The little boy was the same age as me at the time, but i remember how horrified everyone was." (Source)

Warning Signs
Warning Signs

"We had a middle school teacher murder his wife, his wife's lover, and the two children of the lover. When I was in his class years before, he would do things like call 8th grade girls whores in front of the class. He also said he had a gun and would kill anyone that ever messed with his family. I guess the warning signs were there." (Source)

Horrible
Horrible

"Guy down the street got in an argument with his folks. Sat down on the porch swing, dumped a gas can on himself and lit up. Parents and neighbors had to listen to his screams while they tried to put him out. Died before they could..." (Source)

A Minor Story
A Minor Story

"You can list all kinds of things like brutal murders, serial killers, etc. One of the things that upset me the most here was a minor story quickly forgotten: A young woman just stopped showing up for work one day, and no one bothered to check up on her for a couple weeks. When they finally tried to track her down they found out she'd died of a seizure in her apartment. She had a two-year-old little boy who slowly died of hunger and thirst beside his mother's body because no one had bothered to investigate her disappearance until it was too late." (Source)

The Julefrokost Incident
The Julefrokost Incident

"A woman on her way home from a julefrokost (A kind of christmas party we do in my country, where we get exceedingly drunk) was killed and dumped in the harbor. Having people go missing was very unusual, so police dispatched choppers and a huge crew. I remember a chopper hanging over my house as it was searching the fjords. It was extremely odd for something like that to happen in a town where the front page of the newspaper usually talk about the eating habits of the elderly, or a new patch of apple trees being planted in the park."

The Taco Shop
The Taco Shop

"Husband and wife owned a taco shop. Husband went crazy one night and saw his wife transformed as the devil (supposedly husband had just had a large blood clot removed from brain recently). Killed her and dismembered her. Put her head in a box on a neighbors porch. Had to get rid of the rest of the body." (Source)

Never The Same
Never The Same

"I went to school in the northern part of Dublin for a couple of years. One day two sisters who also went there didn't show up for school. Some nasty rumors started floating around but nobody really knew why they were gone. Turns out their mom had her head bashed in with a brick. Two days later they found out who the perpetrator was. It was their dad. The girls eventually returned to school, but they were never the same." (Source)

Mafia Ties?
Mafia Ties?

"In our street there was a ceramics shop owned by a Sicilian family, with an industrial oven and all that type of equipment. The Dad of the family went to Sicily for a few days, and when he came back he found his only 20 year old son burning inside the industrial oven, with several nails in his skull. He was found dead a day after his 20th birthday, and left his father a note letting him know that if he was found dead he 'would not need to look far'. His step-mother's brother and 2 close friends of his were arrested and questioned but were released and not charged. A few months before the murder, they received photos of their missing dog tortured and dead.This was 5 years ago, and the case was never solved, and the dad turned his ceramic shop into a little supermarket."

The Precise Spot
The Precise Spot

"I live close to a huge international airport and my house is, unfortunately, at the precise spot where planes tend to lower their wheels for landing. Stowaways from countries such as Mozambique sometimes try to hide in the wheel arch but usually die of hypothermia en route. Three bodies have landed in the streets around my house in the time I've lived here." (Source)

Poor Girl
Poor Girl

"When I was in primary school, the girl who lived three or four houses away from me was taken out of her bedroom window at night and raped in a nearby park. I was about 9 so she would have been maybe 6 or 7. The scary part is, roughly the same time that the police thought she was taken (2am), our dog started barking like crazy and woke my parents and neighbors up. Weird to think what might have been. BONUS: The town over from where I grew up, at the high school a grade seven boy died during a brawl with older students over a lunch table." (Source)

A Fatal Accident
A Fatal Accident

"In our town by the Sainsbury's (a food retail shop chain in the UK) an old woman accidentally pressed the wrong foot pedal in her car and accelerated over the road, over grass and into the bench outside the shop where a young man was sitting and it killed him." (Source)

The Greyhound Bus Beheader
The Greyhound Bus Beheader

"The Greyhound bus beheader was from here. His apartment was only two streets over from me actually. You know the story: mentally ill guy gets on bus, sits next to a guy with headphones. Voices tell him headphone guy is a demon, pulls out a knife and chops his head off. Then eats part of it." (Source)

Small Town Killer
Small Town Killer

"In my hometown a 19 year old guy with a knife entered kindergarten and murdered 3 kids and their teacher, wounded a nurse. After that he left and was spotted and captured by responding police car while calmly walking down the street drenched in his victims blood. It happened in 1998 I think. I wouldn't say I knew him, but I have seen him on couple of occasions before it happened. Due to this being really small town you couldn't help noticing people. He was weird, quiet dude. Studied law for a half a year, but got booted for poor academic performance if I remember correctly. He got life in prison." (Source)

Street Justice
Street Justice

"I lived in a pretty violent city in Brazil. They did not have any mercy when they caught thieves. One day, a year or so ago, they hanged a thief on the light post on my street. No one talked about it, which made it even scarier that it wasn't a big deal." (Source)

Truly Evil
Truly Evil

"A man was babysitting his ex girfriend's son. He stabbed the boy, cut him up and scattered his body parts around a banana plantation. He lived a few houses down from my grandmother. (Source)

The Port Arthur Massacre
The Port Arthur Massacre

"I don't know if I can really count this as my town because it's about 30-45 minutes out from where i live.. But the Port Arthur massacre when Martin Bryant killed 36 people. My stepdad and his family lived in Port Arthur and could hear the gun shots and everything in between because they lived about five minutes from the old jail site. They had seen him around town because it's a small place where everyone knows everyone. They said he was a very strange kid growing up. (Source)
