Tons of conspiracy theories dot the Denver Airport, that was supposedly constructed by numerous companies WAY over budget:

Excerpt:

There are several conspiracy theories relating to the airport’s design and construction such as the runways being laid out in a shape similar to a swastika. Murals painted in the baggage claim area have been claimed to contain themes referring to future military oppression and a one-world government. However, the artist, Leo Tanguma, said the murals, titled “In Peace and Harmony With Nature” and “The Children of the World Dream of Peace,” depict man-made environmental destruction and genocide along with humanity coming together to heal nature and live in peace.

Travis was a chimpanzee who grew up with a human family. He was beloved by all, and very highly regarded. That is, until he started trying to rip people’s faces off…

Excerpt:

On February 16, 2009, Travis attacked Sandra Herold’s 55-year-old friend Charla Nash, inflicting devastating injuries to her face and limbs. Travis had left the house with Sandra Herold’s car keys, and Nash came to help get the chimp back in the house; upon seeing Nash holding one of his favorite toys, Travis immediately attacked her. Travis’ screams can be heard in the background of the tape as Sandra pleads for police, who initially believed the call to be a hoax, until she started screaming, “He’s eating her!” (KEEP READING)

Albert Fish was a sadistic and horrific serial killer who brutally murdered and mutilated hundreds of people.

Excerpt:

Around 1910, while he was working in Wilmington, Delaware, Fish met a 19-year-old man named Thomas Kedden. He took Kedden to where he was staying, and the two began a sadomasochistic relationship; it is unclear whether or not Fish forced Kedden to do these things, but in his confession he implies that the man was intellectually disabled. After ten days, Fish took Kedden to “an old farm house”, where he began to torture him. The torture took place over two weeks. Fish eventually tied Kedden up and cut off half of his penis. “I shall never forget his scream, or the look he gave me,” Fish later recalled. He originally intended to kill Kedden, cut up his body, and take it home, but he feared the hot weather would draw attention to him. (KEEP READING)

Ben McDaniel went scuba diving one day, and never came back. Despite multiple attempts to recover his body, it has never been found, and accusations range from suicide, murder, to sheer carelessly of an amateur diver. The whole story with all its twists and turns is truly wild.

Excerpt:

Cronin and fellow employee Eduardo Taran, on their way back from a dive themselves – something they often did on Wednesdays after the shop closed – saw Ben as he began descending, with his lights on and wearing a helmet, suggesting he was venturing into the cave. Taran, who had suspected for some time that Ben was forcing the gate open, went down to him and unlocked it, watching Ben go in and then returning to Cronin. No one is known to have seen him since.

These bizarre monuments are called the “ten commandments of the Anti-Christ.” They stand over nineteen feet tall, and were built by a “small group of loyal Americans” in 1980.

Excerpt:

The Guidestones have become a subject of interest for conspiracy theorists. One of them, an activist named Mark Dice, demanded that the Guidestones “be smashed into a million pieces, and then the rubble used for a construction project”, claiming that the Guidestones are of “a deep Satanic origin”, and that R. C. Christian belongs to “a Luciferian secret society” related to the “New World Order“.At the unveiling of the monument, a local minister proclaimed that he believed the monument was “for sun worshipers, for cult worship and for devil worship”.
