    Mother Parks & Abandons Car; Disabled Daughter Inside For Days

    I'd considered putting this Washington (state) story in the "Low Strangeness Disappearances" thread, but the strangeness of the mother's actions argued against that. A mother parked her car at a gas station and left it. The car was towed away. The driver's daughter reported her severely...

    What Exactly Did Les Dawson See Re. Sid James' Ghost?

    Reading about theatre history and yet again came across stories about Les Dawson seeing the ghost of Sid James, not long before his own death. And it's clear that whatever he saw, was absolutely terrifying. But I can't seem to find an account I thought I found a while back, that did actually...

    Serial Killer Cults

    I was introduced to this subject by this excellent podcast. Basically, it seems that some serial killers have claimed to have worked for or have been part of a wider network, often a satanic cult who commit murders as sacrifices. It seems like most of these claims are paper-thin (Henry Lee...

    Is it possible that Fred West or his equally nasty brother John, had something to do with the disappearance of Suzie Lamplugh? There is a theory that Fred and John West were procurers for a high-level Satanic group. Fred West was certainly scared when he made this comment to police during an...
