Default The creepy/shock thread

I'm not going to post anything gory or NSFW.

I find a lot of this stuff interesting and fascinating. Some of this may be upsetting so if you're easily upset then just don't read on.

Omayra Sánchez Garzón (August 28, 1972 – November 16, 1985) was a Colombian girl killed in Armero, department of Tolima, by the 1985 eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, when she was 13 years old. Volcanic debris mixed with ice to form massive lahars (volcanically induced mudslides, landslides, and debris flows) that rushed into the river valleys below the mountain, killing nearly 25,000 people and destroying Armero and 13 other villages.

After a lahar demolished her home, Sánchez became pinned beneath the debris of her house; she remained trapped in water for three days. Her plight was documented as she descended from calmness into agony. Her courage and dignity touched journalists and relief workers, who put great efforts into comforting her. After 55 hours of struggling, she died, likely as a result of either gangrene or hypothermia. Her death highlighted the failure of officials to respond promptly to the threat of the volcano, contrasted with the efforts of volunteer rescue workers to reach and treat trapped victims, despite a dearth of supplies and equipment.

Sánchez became internationally famous through a photograph of her taken by the photojournalist Frank Fournier shortly before she died. When published worldwide it generated considerable controversy; it was later designated the World Press Photo of the Year for 1985. Sánchez has remained a lasting figure in popular culture, remembered through music, literature, and commemorative articles.

One of my former avatars, this woman committed suicide by jumping from the Empire State Building in 1947. A photographer from TIME magazine snapped this picture after she had fallen on a limo and it was used as the cover of an issue. The serenity in it creeps me out.

Funny I just said that to someone, the other day. I have always thought jumpers were serene. It's the moment before you hit, you can see the peace come over their face. Ok now y'all know I am creepy so, just stuff it.

In the most respectful way possible, that's a great pic.

Ed Gein always creeped the **** out of me. Back as a kid I'd be interested in looking up stuff like Jack the Ripper and whatnot, but then I looked up Gein and saw a crime scene photo and it kind of put me off the whole thing for the most part.

Ed Gein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I remember posting this a while back in the Spam thread, but according to the author Ann Rule, who apparently knew him before he became infamous, Ted Bundy used to volunteer at a suicide hotline. Depending on how good he was at his job, and how long he worked there, there's a chance he actually saved more lives than he killed. Weird.

He may have been creepy, but without him there would have been no Norman Bates, Hannibal Lecter, or basically any other famous fictitious serial killer.

I don't think Lecter was based off Gein, but Buffalo Bill definitely was. Not to mention Leather Face.
