In the spirit of the serial killer thread, I thought an unsolved mysteries thread would be nice. here are some of my favorites from Wikipedia.

phantom social workers
Roman Dodecahedon
The Salish Sea Human foot discoveries
The Kentucky Meat Shower
Something to consider when writing a Fairfield piece is The Oley Hills Site

just read the cracked article. paradoxic undressing, animals tend to scavenge the soft body parts first, etc etc.

That explains it about as thoroughly as you could explain the Toynbee tiles by passing it off as nothing more than a 2001 A Space Odyssey reference.

It's pretty simple. an avalanche followed by hypothermia, and then small animals eating tongues, lips, eyes, etc.

Paradoxic undressing is when people are posessed by the isntinct to shed their clothing while in a state of hypothermia.
http://www.cracked.com/article_16671_6-famous-unsolved-mysteries-with-really-obvious-solutions.html
a lot of the dylatov pass incident is embellished to make it scarier sounding than what actually happened.

But Paradoxical Undressing only occurs in ~20 percent of hypothermia deaths. The fact that it happened to all of them at once seems fishy. That also fails to account for how far away a few of the bodies were, I'm pretty sure one was found something like a mile away.

And lastly, I could be wrong, but wouldn't it take more than the 2-5 weeks after the time of death they found them for the snow compacted from an avalanche to clear up completely? How would they wander in so many directions after getting hit by an avalanche in the first place?

As Bears pointed out in the thread, the Fairfield story I wrote called "The Cold Case of Janice Doe" was inspired by the Taman Shud case. I love shit like that.

I didn't know where to put this, but I thought the recent news about Elisa Lam was pretty creepy. For those of you who don't know, there's a video of this lady acting really strange in a hotel elevator that won't close for some odd reason which was the last time she was seen alive. Her body was later found on the rooftop of the hotel in one of the water cisterns. People in the hotel were complaining about low water pressure or black water coming from the faucets. They were all drinking and bathing in the water that her decomposing body was in. At the moment, police don't know if her death was an accident or if she was murdered.

I looked it up, and at first I thought she was just being silly and weird because she thought she was alone.

Then I saw her face.

Then she started moving her arms like that.

That didn't seem so silly.

Some people think she was on drugs, but I read that she needed a special key to get access to the rooftop. I dunno, it just creeps me out that you never see if there was anyone else really there. And those hand gestures were just plain weird. And her body was found naked in the water tank. I wonder if she was murdered, if the person who placed her there knew the people would be using corpse water or if they just thought it was a convenient place to put a body.

The Cecil is a notoriously sketchy tourist trap. After reading a few articles, my superficial opinion would be that Elisa got tied in with the wrong people too soon. She most likely ended up taking some sort of drug, whether or not she had a history with abuse. It's not very difficult to imagine that her killer might have been an employee, who took her to a prohibited place like the rooftop to take advantage of her. These are just my largely uninformed initial conclusions, maybe very exaggerated by my imagination.

This may or may not be one, but

http://www.cracked.com/article/181_the-6-creepiest-places-earth_p2/

Scroll down to the San Zhi Resort one. The eerie, futuristic pod-like area with its share of rust and ruin already leads to one of the most terrifying locations I have ever seen (and this is Cracked.com), and the reason why people completely abandoned the area is a complete mystery, though people have their superstitions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancing_mania

This one is honestly so much more funny than it is eerie, but think about it. You're basically a peasant in the Rennaisance era, and you suddenly find yourself having these painful muscle spasms against your control for hours, unsleeping until you die. Speculation is the devil. : I


I would have posted about The Montauk Monster, but they already figured it out. It was a raccoon carcass bloated by the seas.

Spontaneous combustion in humans is basically a hoax at best, though. Pretty much every known "case" came down to the conclusion that whoever burned to death fell asleep with a cigarette going.

Gotta keep the razor in mind, yo.
