Our society is obsessed with being scared. It’s strange right? We don’t really like to be scared, because being chased by a real live axe murderer in the middle of the night is not very much fun. But we absolutely love to be “fake scared”. Why? Well, mostly for the adrenaline. That’s the one thing roller coasters, horror films, and BASE jumping all have in common. It’s fun to be scared. Actually, it’s addictive. In fact, you’ll probably notice that although you don’t really want to read this list, once you start you won’t be able to stop. And going a step further, some of you will google all of these crimes and lay there in your beds terrifying yourselves that the same axe murderer who killed Jane Doe 50 years ago is going to come crashing through your door. Normally we would say not to worry. Seriously, these things are rare. But…in this case we’re going to have to apologize for not being so reassuring. The reason for that is that these crimes haven’t been solved. In other words, the killers, murderers, and psychopaths in this list are still on the loose. Having said that, we’re terribly sorry for ruining your night. These are 25 scary and disturbing crimes that haven’t been solved.
