7 Creepy Episodes Of ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ That Have Since Been Solved

Kari Lynn Nixon

Unsolved Mysteries

In 1987 sixteen-year-old Kari Lynn Nixon disappeared within 700 feet of her home. Nixon had left home at 9:30pm to get some groceries for her father, she returned and was seen by a neighbor at 10:05pm near her home, only to vanish minutes later when some teens walked by her house. It wasn’t known whether she was abducted by a stranger or chose to run away.

A truly bizarre series of events unfolded when Kari’s parents viewed footage of a New Kids On The Block concert in Los Angeles and believed they recognized Kari in the audience. Jordan and Jonathan Knight personally made appeals for Kari to come forward and return to her parents, but the girl in the video contacted authorities and was in fact, not Kari Lynn Nixon.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
