Johnny Gosch's disappearance is my favorite unsolved mystery.

I feel bad for his mother, who is still running that creepy site about him, but I feel like she's unreliable as hell about the whole "he came back home 10 years later" thing.

There's another one that I like, but can't remember the name of or much info about except there was a girl driving out in the country and just disappeared. They later found her car crashed into the side of an old barn on the side of the road, but they never got any leads about what happened to her. Anyone remember that one?

I don't have a favorite, but a few that really have followed me are the ONS/EAR, Toynbee tiles (pretty much solved but the doc makers didn't want to disturb the artist who was obviously mentally ill), and the motive behind the James Bulger murder.

The Death Valley Germans was a mystery that wasn't very interesting, but the journey of a man in his quest to find their bodies is pretty interesting (spoiler, he finds them). It gave me a new appreciation for desert environments.

Wow, it's kind of shocking that this is still unsolved since three of them related (you would think the family of 3 missing members would file a missing persons report).

I wonder if it has to do with their native American heritage, and the distrust natives have with law enforcement. The estimated date of their death could possibly make police write them off as runaways, as the did frequently at the time.

Of course it is. That doesn't mean people in the sub have to bitch about it in every thread. It's very irrelevant to the sub and nobody came to hear some angry minority whine about politics. Most of the population in the west is made up of whites, so of course you're going to hear much more cases of missing whites. You're also going to hear more cases about missing females because women are preyed on much more. The fact that they get more coverage from the press isn't coincidence or "in favour" of certain groups. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know this. There's nothing for them to bitch about and they're just making a scene for sympathy points because they know no one can say anything about it unless you'll be dubbed racist. Besides, children get noticed the most regardless of gender or colour so the people who keep bringing this shit up are seriously cherry picking for reasons I've already mentioned.

Elisa Lam's death was always fucking creepy to me. A lot of people say that her BD and depression explained her bizarre behavior in the video, but I don't really see how. Her body being found in a water tank up on the hotel rooftop is also a mystery. How did she get in there and close it on herself if it was a suicide due to a mental breakdown?


No. 112824

Eh, I've seen people act like that. And if she didn't open the water tank lid all the way, it would have just fallen back into place once she was in the tank. It's not hard to get in one, it's getting out that's the issue, especially if the water level is waaaay beneath the opening.

No. 112825

The weird part is that she was apparently strong enough to open the tank. That sounds suspicious to me.
I honestly believe foul play was at work. Yes, she had a mental breakdown, probably, but this seems unlikely to be suicide.

Her case is what got me into mysteries and disappearances. It creeps me out everytime I hear about the part where she was found in the water tank.

I haven't seen many good videos or documentaries on this case. A lot of it is the same story of what she was doing and the question of why she ended up like she did. I found this video and these two people believe drugs may have possibly been in her system causing her erratic behavior. It still feels weird that she would get in a water tank, assuming she did it on her own. Even still, the general consensus is she ended up in that water tank on her own accord somehow.

>It still feels weird that she would get in a water tank, assuming she did it on her own.

It's possible either drugs/medication or her mental illness prompted her to get in. If she was feeling paranoid, she might have gotten in there to hide. She might have been hallucinating. She looked pretty scared in the elevator, she might have hid in the tank to escape whatever was frightening her.

It could have just been a split second decision that she couldn't go back on. The tank would have been hard to get out of, even if the lid had been open.

The lids aren't as heavy as they look and I'm pretty sure they're on hinges, so a lot of the weight is taken off whoever opens it up. They're heavy enough to fall back into place though. If she only opened it wide enough to slip through (which I think is likely if she did get in there to hide), it would have closed when she dropped into the tank.

The hotel has had a lot of disgusting murders and deaths that are very out of the norm like this, but hers is the most memorable of them for most because of this video.

The common conspiracy theory is that this is actually some place for government agencies to test mental experiments on unwilling humans or for the elite to pay and off people for fun, sort of dark web style. A lot of people there are overwhelmingly "unwanted", like homeless and very low income. Think old KGB conspiracy style stuff of kidnapping it's own citizens.

"The road on which the hotel stood - Main Street - quickly declined into the area known as Skid Row, with as many as 10,000 homeless people living within a four-mile radius and by the 1950s it had gained a reputation as a residence for transients."

Honestly people die doing dumb shit and making mistakes when mentally well and completely sober so I don't know why people are so shocked that mental illness and drugs can make it even more likely.

There was that girl (Jamie? Janie?) and tried to crawl through vents to get into the restaurant, which is where they found her body a few weeks later. Maybe that was just a dumb decision or caused by her bipolar disorder, but either way it was a mistake that killed her. Sadly it's not that rare for people to die from a single strange mistake.

All it would take was an unlocked or unalarmed door (either the main one or one that led to one of the external stairways) or even a window near a fire escape for people to get onto the roof. The tanks aren't hard - they're designed to be opened up easily and the hatches are on hinges so a lot of the weight is taken off the person who opens them up. The only thing that was stopping her was security, which is likely shitty in a sketch hotel. She didn't even need a ladder because there are railings on the roof that you can use to get on top of the tanks.

Bored teens get into stranger places and a lot of urbex people can attest to how often "secure" areas aren't that secure.

She almost certainly didn't. And this is coming from someone who, from a cursory reading of the case, initially thought she did.

Guede was the murderer. He raped and murdered Kercher, or got her so high on something she didn't know what was going on and when she snapped out of it he killed her in a panic.

Niggers in Italy are known for this kind of shit. A few months ago there was a stupid as fuck American girl who got high on coke and went home with an Eritrean asylum seeker (I shit you not, wtf white girls…) who fucked her and then beat her to death when she mentioned he needed to leave because her boyfriend was coming over.

He reserves the unreleased police reports and photos for forum members who suck his e-dick or donate money if you want to play that game. The fact that the local sheriffs office let him run off with their case files tells you all you need to know about their competence. Throw in the fact that this guy did it because some other guy stole a bunch of evidence before and he wanted to 'archive it online' and it's a goddamn circus.

Clearly didn't care about her kid, typical party mom.

Instead of doing the right thing like getting an abortion or signing the kid over to her parents after it was born, she thought she could handle the highroad. However she fucked up, covered up the neglect/accidental death, but then got a taste of the childless single life again. She realized in that moment that she actually didn't feel bad about her child being gone, and what she actually felt bad about was possibly going to jail for it. All along she craved freedom from the responsibilities that she signed for.

Yup. I went down that rabbit hole. My guess is one fell and was severely injured, the other either tried to help and injured herself or she stayed because she didn't want to leave her friend. They died of exposure or starvation/dehydration, flashflood, or some other natural cause. Their bodies washed away and made their way down stream.

They used the camera either to fend off what they may have thought were animals, or to try and attract help.

What do you guys think of the JonBenet Ramsey case? Did the brother do it?

No. 517607

I think the dna findings point to possibly the dad doing some fucked up shit/maybe letting someone else do gucked up shit to him. The actual murder, I think there's a big possibility of it being the brother, he must've been jealous and too rough. What doesn't make sense is the timeline, the goddamn pineapple and the note with their own notepad. A) There was some sexual relations between the dad/some other men they pimped her out to, went in too rough, they freaked out and fabricated the whole note thing. B) The brother did it and the parents tried to cover it up.
I think there was definitely something very disgusting going on and wouldn't be surprised if it was some mix of these two.

No. 517684

Gonna call occam's razor here and say it was the brother. He killed her accidentally in a fit of rage after JonBenet snatched pineapple from his snack bowl and the parents covered it up for him. I don't think there are any shady child prostitution ring things at play with that case. The brother was emotionally disturbed and had hit her before in the head with a golf club, now he hit her with a flashlight and killed her. The autopsy findings support this theory as the cracks on her skull lined up with the flashlight in question. JonBenet was small enough to be killed by a blow to the head even if the brother was only 9 years old. The parents lied about the brother being asleep during the whole ordeal while his voice can be heard in the background of the 911 call. It's the most plausible theory so far.

No. 517722

Either the brother or the mother, I don't think it was a molestation thing either but a fit of rage over xmas gifts/toys (in the case of the brother) or her bedwetting if it was the mother. Either way I think the mother took that secret to the grave with her. She wrote the ransom note.

No. 517728

the podcast true crime garage recently did a like 5 part breakdown of the case that goes extremely in depth and only sticks to facts that were known and it completely changed my opinion on the case (i was originally positive the family was in on it). i highly recommend even if you've watched/listened to other jonbenet coverage.

there were three things that stuck out that changed my mind about the family being involved:

first, while there was evidence of sexual abuse at the time she died, the coroner concluded there was no evidence of long-term or historical sexual abuse. she had no scarring typical with that type of sexual abuse, and the abuse was consistent with digital manipulation but nothing further. this disproved to me the idea that the dad or someone else had been molesting her leading up to her death even though that's a popular theory. the evidence just doesn't support that unless he molested her once and then killed her right after.

second, her head injury came with no blood. there wasnt a puddle of blood when she was found, her hair wasn't matted with blood. this indicates to me that the head injury was inflicted post-mortem to ensure she was dead after she had been suffocated with the garrote. that rules out any rough accident with her brother or her mother throwing her after her bed-wetting, etc.

lastly, there was evidence that when the killer was using the garrote, he was repeatedly loosening and tightening it, presumably to bring jonbenet to the brink of unconsciousness, then let her revive a bit, then do it again. this to me is the behavior of a disgusting, sick pedophile who was getting off on watching her die. say what you want about how weird the ramsey's are, but i dont think any parent who was just covering up an accident would go that far.

a lot of the evidence that is presented as fact and sensationalized is shoddy at best or just plain misreported. the handwriting analysis wasn't as damning as the media wanted to portray. there was no sign she had been continuously sexually abused. some of the police on scene who later claimed sensing something ~sinister~ about john ramsey never indicated that in early interviews. the media circus really incentivized people to act like they had the key to solving this case even when they didn't.

what i think happened was a pedophile was planning to abduct jonbenet, saw an opportunity, and took it. i think maybe he came in before the night of the crime to scope things out and see the layout of the house to plan the abduction. he then returned to act it out, and was successful in getting jonbenet down in the cellar. i dont think he intended to kill her, but wanted to get off on bringing her in and out of consciousness with the thrill of her parents being upstairs because it aroused him. i think his intention was to then put her in the suitcase and leave with her or just carry her out and flee. i think he accidentally took it too far choking her and killed her, and then panicked. this would explain haphazardly using items from around the house to write the note, the note being weirdly long, etc. i think he hit her in the head to insure she was dead before he left so she couldn't be revived and possibly identify him. and that was it. then the investigation was so hopelessly botched and it became a worldwide sensation and at this point i dont think theres any hope for her case to ever be solved.
