25 Backpackers And Park Rangers Reveal The Creepiest Thing They Found Lurking In The Woods

5. I found a piece of a decomposed human body

“I live in Alaska and less than 2 months ago I was hiking through the woods on my way duck hunting. I was probably less than 100 yards off the trail when I found pieces of an extremely decomposed human body. Obviously I turned around immediately and called the police, the body was torn apart by animals and decomposed enough that it took a week or so to identify it. Turns out it was a 53 year old lady who had gotten lost hiking a mountain a couple months earlier. What amazed me was that even with an extremely extensive search for her when she went missing she still wasn’t found and she was so close to the trail.” — Seriwanabuckulamian
