In June, 2007, eight-year-old Amarjeet Sada of India, was arrested for allegedly killing three babies, two of them his cousins. According to police, Amarjeet strangled his first victim, a six-month-old cousin, and bludgeoned the head of a second cousin, also under a year old. Police say both killings were kept under wraps by the family; however, the case came to light when neighbors suspected Amarjeet in the death of their six-month-old daughter.

The Bones of St. Pancratius are found at the Church of St. Niklaus in Wil, Switzerland. He was originally robed in clothes by nuns in the late 1600’s, but in 1777 – the centenary of his bones arriving in Wil – he was dressed in this magnificent commissioned suit of armour.

A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.

WHAT.

NO FUCKING WAY.

YO HOLD ON. 

IT GETS BETTER.

This mummy, found in the  Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.

She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance. 

…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.  

And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?

The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Louisville, Kentucky.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium was opened in 1910 to deal with the massive outbreak of tuberculosis, originally acommodating 40 to 50 patients, it was extended in 1926 to house more than 400 patients and closed in 1961.

Numerous reports of paranormal activity and urban legends have been connected to this place. One such tale involves Room 502 where in 1928 the body of a 29 year old nurse was found; she had hanged herself from a light fixture, it is thought she took her own life because she was unmarried and pregnant to the owner of the sanatorium; she had also contracted tuberculosis. Visitors to this room have reported feelings of great despair and the sound of a disembodied voice telling them to “Get out!”.

Ghostly voices have also been heard in the dark and eerie 525 foot long “Death Tunnel” where the bodies of dead patients where transported underground via gurneys to an awaiting hearse; this was done out of sight so as to keep morale up amongst the other patients. 

The rooftop was used for “heliotherapy” or “light therapy” sessions for the treatment of TB of the bones by using sunlight. The child patients were supplied with a swing set to play on while they were receiving this treatment. Some have heard the voices of children chanting the nursery rhyme “Ring Around the Rosy” in this location.

Other phenomena documented include mysterious lights appearing at night and the sound of a television in the building when there has been no electricity for many years. The terrifying apparition a screaming woman with bleeding wrists, the ghostly figure of a little girl peering out of the third floor windows and the spectre of a boy running through the hallways with a leather ball have also been seen.

The Haunted Film - Ghosts of Movie Stars Make a Comeback

Filmmaker Alex Monty Canawati made a short film called Birth of Babylon, which won “Best Short” at the American Film and Music Festival in 2000. The short was then developed into a feature-length film, Return to Babylon. The film shot between 2001 and 2004, but was shelved due to “problems” with strange images in the film.

The film’s release had a long delay due to the discovery of “odd figures, morphing of characters and ghost-like images” in some scenes. These were especially clear in still framing. The images were found to be on the original negatives and not in any special effects.

The film is said to have been infiltrated by phantom figures — ghosts of the dead stars that are the subject of the film, which is about assorted scandals in Hollywood at the beginning of the 20th Century. The images occurred without splicing in old footage or engaging in CGI re-constructions.

It was filmed on location in the estates of deceased stars. Lead cast member Jennifer Tilly and other members of the cast and crew began to feel that they were not alone on the sets. Jennifer Tilly was quite vocal during filming about the presence of “ghosts”. She kept reiterating that they were touching her. The still photographer would also capture strange images on her film.

Another star of the movie, Maria Chonchita Alonso, spoke of the experience on Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story. She stated that it was all very real and a truly frightening experience.

The film was studied by many industry professionals and it was concluded that there was paranormal activity occurring in the film. When certain shots are seen frame-by-frame, one can see “morphing” taking place with the actors that has no apparent cause or explanation.

Over several years, a series of disembodied human feet were discovered on islands, shorelines and the Fraser River in Southwestern British Columbia, Canada. The feet washed up on shorelines, and were seen floating in the water, always in a defined area known as the Georgia Basin. Even more eerily, the feet were inside shoes, and were almost always left feet.

A variety of terrifying theories came forward, while some have attempted to explain the mysteries as a function of drowning and decomposition processes. Some suggested that feet might naturally detach from drowning bodies, while others put forward the ridiculous theory that left feet were more likely to show up due to shape.

Statistically, it was considered very puzzling for not just 2, but 3, feet to show up. For a total of over 8 feet to appear is completely bizarre and terrifying. None of the theories can adequately explain how Southern BC and Washington were inundated by oceangoing, severed feet.
