The Hinterkaifeck Murders
Hinterkaifeck was a farm in Germany. The maid thought it was haunted because she kept hearing sounds so she quit. The owner noticed footprints leading into the farm buildings but not leading out. A new maid arrives. Neighbors become concerned that no one has seen the family in a while and go to check it out. They find the animals well taken care of, but someone had murdered the entire family and the new maid on the day she arrived and then lived in the farm with the bodies for a while. (Choactapus)
There is an abandoned city in Africa that was very advanced. I cannot remember the name, but it had bathing areas and toilets. What makes it weird is that it was not destroyed by Arabs or Europeans. Why was it abandoned?
It was Gedi. Gedi also boasted very large homes as well. They had aquaducts which brought them water from wells. Also, all of their plumbing was connected to a sewage system. Yes, they had a fucking sewage system! Seriously, why was it abandoned!? (ILikeMonitorLizards)
