There’s nothing more tantalizing in the news than sex, scandal, and murder. Each and every day, we see the newspapers plastered with new killings and new sex crimes, as well as possible scandals. The news loves to ply us with the worst sorts of human sins and vices, and murder and sex scandals are their favourites. It’s hard to look away from the mysterious and the strange. Some of these incredibly thought-provoking mysteries remain unsolved for years, decades, or even centuries. But there is something that draws us all into a great murder story - a mystery revolving around sex, some crazy hidden scandal or a little dash of all three.
Over the last few decades (and even before then, too) there have been hundreds of unsolved cases ranging from lovemaking to assault, and even murder. Many of these crimes and mysteries are solved by the police or historians, and the victims are given closure as the bad guys are exposed or put away. But sometimes, the bad guys don’t get caught, the victims never get closure, and the public is left to ponder over who could have been responsible or what could have actually happened. We may never have a clear story, but a good mystery is still somehow incredibly intriguing.
Here is our top 10 most mysterious and weird cases involving sex, murder or scandal that haunt our thoughts and keeps us up at night, pondering the possibilities.
10 Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle - Career Ruined
9 Marilyn Monroe - Affair With The President
8 Bob Crane - A Flair For Weirdness
7 Virginia’s Colonial Parkway Killers - Make-Out Gone Wrong
6 The Black Doodler - A Deadly Lure
5 The Atlas Vampire - Taste Of Blood
4 David Carradine - Alone In Darkness
3 Princess Louise - Punished For Love
2 Original Night Stalker - Forever Free
1 Jack The Ripper - The Original Assassin
One of the most mysterious murder cases of all time happened in east London during 1888. Jack the Ripper killed at least five prostitutes in his tenure as a serial killer, but was never caught. The man, whoever he was, mutilated his victims, carving up each of the five women and taking off their skin (and stealing another part of their body, too). Jack the Ripper could have also been responsible for several murders before, and two after, though definitive connections have never been made. All the victims were female sex workers, and he picked them for a very specific reason. Whether it had something to do with sex, their profession, or something entirely different, we’ll never know. All we know for sure is that Jack is dead, and all of his secrets have presumably died with him.
