10 Mysterious And Creepy Photos That Might Never Be Explained

10. Babushka Lady

The Babushka Lady is a nickname for an unknown woman present during the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. As she was seen to be holding a camera, she might have photographed the events during the assassination. Even though the shooting had already taken place and most of her surrounding witnesses took cover, she can be seen still standing with the camera at her face. Neither she, nor the film she may have taken, has yet been positively identified.

9. Naga Fireballs

Sometimes also referred to as the Mekong lights, the Naga fireballs is a strange natural phenomenon with unconfirmed source seen on the Mekong river in Thailand and Laos. In the phenomenon, glowing reddish balls are alleged to naturally rise from the water high into the air. There have been several attempts to scientifically explain the Naga fireballs but none of them came up with any reliable solution.

8. Mysterious 9/11 Attack Survivor

In this picture, a woman is standing on the edge of the demolished South Tower as it was hit by an airplane in the 9/11 terrorist attack. Waving and probably calling for help, the woman obviously survived the initial attack but it is unclear how she made it or what happened to her after.

7. S. S. Watertown Ghosts

In December 1924, James Courtney and Michael Meehan, crew members of the S.S. Watertown, were cleaning a cargo tank of the oil tanker when they were overcome by gas fumes and killed. The crew buried them in the sea but to their astonishment, the ghostly faces of the soldiers appeared in the water on the next day. Later on, many other crew members reported to see the faces as well. The faces were so visible that the captain of the ship ordered to take a picture of them. The negative was even checked for fakery and proclaimed genuine.

6. Death of Evelyn McHale

In May 1947, 23-year-old Evelyn McHale leapt to her death from the 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York and landed on a limousine parked at the curb. Photography student Robert Wiles took a photo of McHale’s corpse just a few minutes after her death and – to his shock – her body was unnaturally intact, considering the enormous height she fell from. Consequently, her death is sometimes referred to as “the most beautiful suicide”.

5. Worstead Church Ghost

In 1975, Diane and Peter Berthelot visited the Worstead Church in north Norfolk, U.K. While in the church, Peter took a photo of his wife sitting and praying on one of the church benches but when they developed the film, they found out there was a bizarre ghostly figure sitting right behind Diane. When they got back to the church, a local vicar told them it was the White Lady, the ghost of a healer who was believed to haunt the church.

4. Candy Man´s 29th Victim

Dean Corll, later known as the Candy Man, was a serial killer who abducted, raped, tortured and killed 28 young boys between 1970 and 1973. However, in 2012, 40 years after these gruesome crimes, a mysterious photo of a terrified handcuffed boy was found in one of Corll´s accomplice´s possession. As scary as the photo itself was, things got even more agonizing when it was found out that the boy in the photo was not any of the original 28 kids.

3. Bachelor´s Grove Figure

In 1991, several members of the Ghost Research Society investigated the Bachelor´s Grove cemetery outside Chicago that is generally considered one of the most haunted places in the US with over a hundred of reports of various supernatural phenomena. One of the members took a picture of the cemetery that was empty at that time but when they looked at the photo, they saw an image a white ghostly figure sitting on a tombstone.

2. Mysterious Satellites

In 1954, newspapers including the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the San Francisco Examiner ran stories attributed to retired naval aviation major and UFO researcher Donald Keyhoe saying that the US Air Force detected two satellites orbiting Earth. At this time, however, no one had the technology to launch a satellite, which has led to many speculations about the origin of the object. Some conspiracy theorists believe it is a 13,000 year-old satellite of extraterrestrial origin.

1. Extra Thumb

One of the most recent photos that have baffled many internet users, this seemingly ordinary photo shows four youngsters posing for the shot. But if you look carefully, you will notice there is what appears to be an extra thumb next to the kid in black on your right. The boys as well the person who took the picture claimed they had no idea whose thumb that was.
