26 People Reveal The Most Disturbing Stuff That Happened In Their Hometown

You’re never safe. Not even in your own home. These stories from Ask Reddit prove that.

11. A young girl got kidnapped and bludgeoned to death

“Back in the late 1940s a young girl who was in hospital with pneumonia got kidnapped and bludgeoned to death not too far from the hospital itself. The crime scene had a set of muddy footprints, as well as some rather visible fingerprints, on a glass bottle near the bed of the victim. Another report was from a taxi driver who picked up a man near the hospital around the time. The local police alongside Scotland Yard had the idea to carry out fingerprint checks of all men who were in the town at the time using the electoral register and ration books. They found a match with a man by the name of Peter Griffith’s who eventually confessed to his crimes. I think it was the first time in the nation that a murder was solved using fingerprint comparisons.” — HumaidDaWorld

12. A lady cut the baby out of a pregnant woman

“Lady posted on Craigslist that she was seeing baby clothes. When a pregnant woman came to buy it, the lady attacked her and cut the baby out of her. Crazy lady went to hospital with baby claiming she had it at home.

Apparently the crazy lady had been claiming she was pregnant a while and did this when husband was out of town. Pregnant lady survived but the baby died. Super fucked up.” — littlekenney13
