CAUTION! THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS DISTURBING IMAGES OF DEATH* We like to think that this type of thing can’t happen in polite society, that cannibalism is something that only so-called uncivilized tribes and macabre serial killers partake in. But history has proven again and again that when humans are starving and survival instincts kick in, people will do and eat literally anything and anyone – in many cases even their own children…
Happy Friday the 13th, y’all! We all know today is supposed to be unlucky, and there are a few different reasons for this superstition: If you’re Christian you believe that Jesus was killed on a Friday and there were 13 people at the last supper. Another reason, they used to hang people on Fridays, and there are 13 turns on a hangman’s noose. And more recently, Tupac died from his wounds on Friday the 13th, in 1996.
The first actual accounting of tainted candy happened in Long Island back in 1964. A 47 year old housewife named Helen Pfeil was sick and tired of older kids participating in what she believed to be a young kid activity, so she took it upon herself to remedy the situation…
It’s believed that the Iceman and a friend had been searching for food when they got into a fight, which is likely how he died. Amazingly there was still an Arrowhead lodged in his shoulder, and plenty of cuts and bruises are still apparent on much of his body. With DNA testing, the blood of 4 other people was found on him.
Barbara Mackle had grown up in a very well to-do home. Her father, Robert, was a successful land developer on Marco Island, Florida. As everyone from the state will tell you, Marco is big money; the area is often the home of celebrities and the uber wealthy. Barbara had never wanted for anything, but she’d always been a good girl, and definitely the apple of her her father’s eye.
Mitchell Clay and his 13 children found some land and decided to build their home there. People familiar with this slice of history say that he truly may not have realized that his new land had been a Shawnee Native American trading post and burial ground; Mitchell may have honestly believed he was the first person there. Either way, this was a deadly mistake, the Shawnee were not happy that their sacred grounds were suddenly inhabited. They quickly decided to do something about it, and Mitchell’s children would pay the price.
Tania Head was 9/11’s most famous survivor. She shocked and inspired the country with her horrific tale of being on the 78th floor of the South tower when tragedy struck; Tania claimed to have witnessed her assistant decapitated, and her own arm caught fire, but she’d had such a will to live! Tania was found by a fireman who put out the fire on her arm and brought her to safety. On her way out of the building, a dying man gave her his inscribed wedding ring and begged her to return it to his wife, which Tania did. She was only one of 19 people who survived from above the point of impact. Sadly, Tania’s fiance, Dave, who had been in the North tower, was one of the 2800 victims who lost their lives that day.
When you think of war crimes, the holocaust, and human experiments during WW2, what do you envision? Do you think of Hitler and the Nazis torturing innocent Jewish people? I do, too. But the Nazis weren’t the only ones; Japan did some absolutely horrific things as well – Hitler and his doctors had nothing on them! The Japanese didn’t really care who they experimented on, it didn’t matter what nationality they were, or the color of their skin. They were equal opportunity killers: Russians, Asians, Koreans, American soldiers, pregnant women, children, infants, fetuses, they all became victims.
It’s likely you’re already aware that Stockholm Syndrome is a term used to describe what happens when a kidnapped victim becomes emotionally attached to his or her captor. Do you know the origin of this condition?
There is an ongoing debate as to whether Richard Kuklinski was a serial killer or a hitman – it’s usually agreed upon by professionals that an individual can not be both…
