What Unsolved Mystery Is So Creepy It Keeps You Up Late At Night?

Nothing like going down a rabbit hole after midnight.

There are a lot of strange and creepy things that happen in this world, and so many of them go unsolved.


For example, the super-duper creepy mystery of the serial killer known as "the Doodler," who would sketch his victims before brutally murdering them.

His crimes go back to the 1970s in the San Francisco Bay Area, but he was never caught. However, police released a new sketch of what they think the Doodler looks like now just this past February.

Then there's the very odd and somewhat fascinating "Wow!" signal that was detected from space.!_signal

In 1977 an astronomer was using radio signals to scan the stars around the constellation Sagittarius. Later, he detected a 72-second-long anomaly in the radio frequency and he wrote "Wow!" on his computer printout. No one has been able to explain the strange signal.

Or what about the famously mysterious and suspicious death of Natalie Wood?

Wood drowned off the coast of Catalina Island in California back in 1981. The only other people on the boat with her at the time were reportedly her husband, actor Robert Wagner; her friend and costar Christopher Walken; and the boat's captain, Dennis Davern. Although initially called an accidental drowning, the case was reopened in 2011 and the cause of death on her death certificate was also changed to: "drowning and other undetermined factors."

Unsolved mysteries can be truly spooky and keep us thinking about them for days, months, even years! So tell us: What's an unsolved mystery you can't stop thinking about?
