Strangest Unsolved Mysteries of All Time
Some eerie incidents have captured the attention of many people around the world. Although a great deal of investigation has taken place, the questions in many of these fascinating incidents still remain unsolved. Here are some of the strangest unsolved mysteries of all time:
The Mysterious Case of D.B. Cooper
D.B. Cooper became a legend for what he accomplished. Based on the description provided by the flight attendants of Northwest Airlines Flight 305, he was an impeccably dressed and well-mannered man. He handed a young flight attendant a note and said in a gentle voice that he had a bomb. He demanded 200,000 dollars in knapsacks along with some parachutes.
His demands were met at the airport in Seattle, and the plane was refueled. Then, he let go of all the passengers and the two flight attendants and instructed the flight crew to fly to Mexico and stop for fuel in Nevada.
After the flight took off, he took the money and jumped out of the plane with a parachute into Oregon. Experts are still not entirely sure whether he survived the jump. They didn’t find a parachute, although some of the money was found by a small boy. There is no evidence that D.B. Cooper ever used the money.
The 1962 Escape from Alcatraz Island
The Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary was known to be heavily guarded, and it was considered impossible to escape. However, three prisoners may have successfully escaped from this maximum security prison.
They planned the escape for a long time and drilled holes in their prison cells using homemade drills without being detected. They also made rafts and life vests. They even made dummy heads to deceive the guards into thinking they were asleep in their cells at nighttime.
The question of whether they did manage to escape still remains. Although some items were found, no real evidence was found to strongly indicate that the men had made their way out alive. Their bodies weren’t found either. The FBI worked on the case from 1962 to 1979.
The Mysterious Disappearance of Malaysians Airlines Flight 370
This is one of the most chilling and unanswered incidents to have ever taken place in the long history of aviation. The aircraft just happened to disappear as it made its way through the Indian Ocean. Unfortunately, research and investigation never really revealed any answers, leading people to make up many theories.
The flight debris was never fully recovered as well. Many experts think a hijack was possible or the flight crew members may have committed suicide. Some have even asserted that aliens may have been involved in the case.
The Sleeping Sickness
In the early 1900s, sleeping sickness was a huge cause of concern. It mysteriously started happening in Europe, and soon enough, people on other continents started experiencing it in huge numbers. They would find their bodies become frozen, and they would lay still for a long time while fully being conscious.
