It's that time again, /x/.
Put on your trench-coats and Fedoras and light up a cigarette in a dimly-lit office, it’s time for a creepy unsolved crimes thread.
Unexplained disappearances. Perpetrators vanishing without a trace. “Suspicious” suicides. Bizarre, ritualized murders and messages from an anonymous killer. Indecipherable pieces of evidence. Incomprehensible acts of theft and terrorism. Horrific acts of violence with no apparent motive. Inexplicable or even supernatural elements to crime that defy conventional understanding. Tales of corrupt officials and conspiracies, tampering with evidence and suppressing the truth. Abduction, torture, ritual-murder, human-trafficking, secret societies and more.
Rookie Mode: Post a Wikipedia link.
Veteran Mode: Post a Wikipedia link AND a green-text summary in this thread that explains why the crime/event is so creepy, and inspires people to go and read the Wiki article.
As per usual, I’ll post some great copy-pasta from the previous iterations of this thread to get things started, and to keep this thread alive if things get slow.

The Skeptic's Experience

I had an event occur to me, a couple weeks ago, and I've been trying to figure out how to present it to /x/. I am both a skeptic and a believe. I believe in many things but am skeptical of specific occurrences. However, I recently experienced something that left me rattled, at first, but later fascinated by the implications.
I was asleep and was having a vivid dream in which I was being stalked by gnomish creatures that would vanish if I tried to look at them. They followed me home, where my dream self went to sleep. They appeared to me, paralyzed me with soothing whispers, and began draining the life from me through my thumbs (by suckling at them like calves). I panicked and tried to wake up. When I felt my body move enough, I clenched my hands around the neck of the one drinking my left hand. This was when I fully awoke and discovered there was nothing there, except my hand, still trying to choke the thing that wasn't there. I discovered my hand had gone to sleep, as well, and the sensation of it waking up simulated the feeling of something sucking on it.
Now, besides the fact that I had trouble concentrating the rest of the day, several things later occurred to me. The first being that, at its core, my dream was essentially the same as the experiences claimed by alien abductees. Likewise, it's a matter of cultural context. I invest more in the idea of "the good folk" than I do aliens visiting earth, so it would be only natural that this exchange would happen. What this means to me is that while I'm not completely and totally dismissing encounters with either aliens or faeries, I am giving a first-hand experienced explanation for many of them.

Okay /x/, last night we got some weird text messages.
Well, first we got a phone call. My husband answered, said "hello" a couple of times, then hung up. Nobody there, whatever.
After that they went with the typical "hey baby, hey sexy, btw I'm 18" bullshit, The first few messages were deleted once we thought the spamming was done, so I can't transcribe those, but nothing of importance was said.
When they started up again, we started spamming back, because we're ass-hats with nothing better to do. I attempted to Google the number and the internet said it didn't exist. They were using TextNow or whatever. There were links to it at the end of every message, so I figured that's why I couldn't find the number. But their area code was from Utah, so that's something I guess? I don't know.
It's kind of lame at first, but gets pretty weird really fast.
I feel like I'm forgetting stuff, but here's the text conversation, letter for letter:
Weirdo (9:34pm)- Will u send me a pic of u then I promise I will send u 30$ in the mail tmro or u can pick a place to meet me
Weirdo (9:35pm)- Please please then I will leave u alone I promise

Why are we so concerned with the newest clothes , video games, tv shows and movies; instead of the wars, the poverty and the suffering of fellow mankind?
I just found a documentary that was made in North Korea by a psychologist which exposes how the Media runs our lives everyday.
Before you attempt to troll,judge or flame me.
Watch this first, ignorance is the worst quality.
Fuck the Radio, Fuck the Television
