34 People Share The Most Disturbing, Messed Up Thing That Ever Happened In Their Own Hometown

8. A School Fundraiser Gone Wrong

A kid selling candy door to door for a school fundraiser was murdered for his money. Not only did it happen in my hometown, but on my street about 15-20 houses down the road. I wasn’t allowed to ride my bike too far for awhile after that.

Actually, I just looked it up for the first time ever and it was way more disturbing than that.



Neighbouring town but about a 15 min drive. Robert “Willie” Pickton. He is a serial killer convicted of murdering 6 women (for which he was given the longest possible sentence in Canada 25 years with no chance of parole). He has however admitted to murdering 49 women. Lots of awful details, but mostly he is known for feeding his victims to his pigs… He was a pig farmer.


10. The Oakville Blobs

Not my town but an hour away, in 1994 it rained Gelatin nobody ever figured out why for sure.

Several attempts were made to identify the blobs, with Barclift initially asking her mother’s doctor to run tests on the substance at the hospital. Litle obliged and reported that it contained human white blood cells. Barclift also managed to persuade Mike Osweiler, of the Washington State Department of Ecology’s hazardous materials spill response unit, to examine the substance. While white blood cells contain nuclei, further examination by Osweiler’s staff reported that the blobs contained cells that lacked this cellular structure.”


11. Quadruple Murder in Kitsap, Washington

This unsolved quadruple murder of an entire family including a 16-yo kid from the HS in our sleepy town. It’s super unsettling and people around here say the police suspect a cartel connection/hit but nothing has been proven yet.
