4. ELISA LAM
“Elisa Lam. The surveillance video of her right before she died is extremely disturbing. Basically, girl stays alone in downtown LA hotel. Disappears. Then someone complains the water is gross. They find her body later inside a rooftop water container. Locked from the outside. Then they find (and release) security camera footage of her in the hallways and elevators that show her behaving super strange the night of her disappearance and it never shows anyone else near her. Still unsolved.”
5. THE YUBA COUNTY FIVE
“Yuba County 5 or the Yuba incident that has been called the American Dyatlov pass….
In 1978 five friends with intellectual disabilities ended up driving into the wilderness for no apparent reason and four of their remains were later found there. One was extremely emaciated and had taken a long time to die in a ranger’s cabin where food and other essentials were readily available. The others were outside and not enough was found to determine how they died. They didn’t leave even though their truck was still functional. I can’t find any theory anywhere even attempting to explain what could have happened to them.”
6. THE LOST GIRLS OF PANAMA
“The Dutch girls who went missing in Panama is both creepy and mysterious to say the least. This is a great read but also a sad story. I haven’t read it in some time but I think they had determined that they had gone off the trail and possibly one of them had fallen and gotten injured. The other girl went to go find help and had when it got dark, all she had was a camera to light her way, so the story has some pictures of darkness in a jungle that are unsettling. Extremely creepy and sad as they both most likely died of exposure but there has been speculation of a malicious actor in the case.”
