ODD PLACES BODIES HAVE BEEN FOUND
Added on: 7th May 2015
MAYAN SACRIFICIAL POOL
One of the most popular tourist attractions in Yucatan, Mexico are the
so called cenotes. You’ll be fine as long as you just swim in the pools,
but whatever you do, never dive down. On the bottom, there are
hundreds of skeletons of people sacrificed centuries ago to Chaak,
the rain god of the Mayans.
ROOFTOP HOTEL WATER TANK
When guests at the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, California,
complained of low pressure and a strange taste in the water,
they couldn’t have imagined the grisly source of the problem.
Maintenance workers found the rooftop water tank clogged by
Canadian tourist Eilsa Lam, who had apparently drowned inside.
ROOTS OF A TREE
When Hurricane Sandy swept through Connecticut in 2012, it
knocked down hundreds of trees and one of them revealed
a morbid secret that had been hidden for centuries. Twisted
within its roots, numerous human remains were found.
Further investigation revealed that the area had been a
burial site for Yellow Fever victims.
Each Halloween, a family from Illinois turns a local house into a
haunted house famous all over the neighbourhood.
But one year, the house got even scarier than the organizers intended.
An unknown 71-year-old man died in the house and was left
there for another 3 weeks until the visitors finally realized his
body was not a prop.
When Bristol resident Alan Derrick let a homeless man, Denis Pring,
crash on his couch, he didn´t have the foggiest idea of how his
generous effort would end up. Pring, who has just finished a hearty
drinking session, died on the sofa. Derrick, was reportedly
“too scared” to tell anyone about the death, and just turned the sofa
over and forgot about the dead man. Pring’s body was discovered
inside the sofa after 10 years when Derrick moved out.
PADLOCKED GYM BAG
A naked, decomposing body of a British spy inside a padlocked
gym bag is probably one of the most bizarre and disturbing
discoveries that crime investigators have ever made. But what
makes this case even creepier is the fact that the bag was found in the
spy´s apartment and there has been no evidence of anybody
else being involved in the tragedy, which gives rise to many
theories and speculations about what really happened.
A mailman in Pennsylvania was on his route when he found a strange
package at the bottom of a mailbox. At first, the package, which had
no address or stamps, was thought to be a bomb so authorities were
brought in to investigate. After the bomb sniffing dogs gave the
okay, they found a metal box with a weird label, inside the package.
On the label there were years and names of individuals and in
the box were the cremated ashes of these people.
HOLY RIVER GANGES
Every day, dead bodies of men, women, and even children are
found washed up along the shores of India´s Ganges River.
However local officials never suspect any crime, as it is believed
that the dead were just given water burials. Many poor Indians
cannot afford cremation so they just bury their deceased family
members in the river. Unfortunately, this only contributes to
the already heavy pollution of this Holy River.
