50 People On ‘The Darkest, Creepiest True Story That Terrifies Me To This Day’

6. Sex slavery


The Amy Bradley disappearance. She disappeared from a cruise ship en route to Curacao in 1998, and years later photos (NSFW!) were emailed to her parents that very much resembled her, and looked like she had been sold into sexual slavery. Multiple people have also claimed to see her through the years; the Wikipedia page on her case lists the sightings, and here’s an FBI missing persons report, including sketches of people she was seen with in 2005.
The whole story is just chilling and terrifying. But this part of the Wikipedia article particularly stuck with me:

In 1999 an American sailor reported that he went to a brothel on Curaçao and was approached by a young woman. She told him her name was Amy Bradley and asked for his help. At this point, two men in the bar escorted her upstairs. By the time the witness reported this to police several months later, the brothel had burned down.

7. The worst doctor ever


There was a french doctor during WWll, who promised jewish refugees to help them to leave europe. When they came to his house on the day of departure, with their most precious belongings, he would give them a special “vaccine”, since they were allegedly going to south america. He killed them all, took their stuff, also made them pay some high fee for his help in the first place, and dissolved their corpses in his basement with acid.

8. Axe man in the attic


Hinterkaifeck. It’s about a guy who sneaks onto a farm and lives there in the attic for several days before killing them all one by one with an axe.

9. How did he know your name?


I almost was abducted by a man in a van (twice on separate accounts) when I was 15. This one time the cops came to my apartment complex and found footsteps in the snow leading up to the back window where my room was. When the guy tried to snatch me (in front of the complex, he didn’t because I was kicking and screaming) he had said my name several times. Gives me chills thinking about it.

10. Night visitor


Just gonna jump on this comment to share a story that happened to a girl that I dated. I’ll leave out specific details because I don’t know how much she’d want it out there.

She used to work at a home improvement store and there was this middle aged guy who used to come in regularly and hang around the store and talk to her. He seemed a little slow and clingy, but harmless. He would always address her by name and say that she was pretty.

The one day he was in the store as they were closing and he saw a male coworker give her a hug before he left. The next day that male coworker woke up to find his tires slashed in his driveway. No one made any connection to the nice middle aged guy who came in to buy batteries 5 times a week.
Meanwhile, this girl had been noticing that she was always losing underwear at home. She just assumed that she had been losing them in the wash or simply misplacing them and thought nothing of it. She even joked about it with her mom.

Then it happened. She was sleeping one night and woke up to find this guy standing silently over her bed, staring down at her with her panties pressed against his face. She flipped the fuck out and he ran out the sliding glass door on the back of the house. The same unlocked door that, as they found out once he was caught, he had been coming into night after night for months to watch sleep and masturbate with her underwear.
