  • Just after 11 a.m. on a fall day in 2003, a crime scene analyst named Anna Cox was standing in the middle of a horrific crime scene inside of an apartment near Tampa, Florida. At her feet was a dead body in a pool of blood, and moving all around her were dozens of police officers and other investigators taking photos and collecting evidence. But none of those things or those other people stood out to Anna, because right now, the only thing she could think about was what she saw on the wall. She had never seen anything like this before... well, except for in movies, but no, sure enough, when she walked up to the wall, she realized that the thing that was on the wall was very real. And very, very disturbing. Possibly more disturbing, at least psychologically, than the dead body nearby. And it would be this discovery on the wall that would lead police to one of the coldest killers in Florida history.

  • One November night in 2004, in a tiny town in Alaska, a state trooper was responding to a call about a potential car accident. He eventually reached the isolated logging road where the accident supposedly happened, and sure enough, he saw a smoking vehicle that had clearly gone off the road. The trooper quickly got out of his vehicle and rushed down to the car to see if there was anyone he could help. But when he go there and looked inside the car, at first he was just confused. But then, he looked into the backseat, and he recoiled in horror. This was no car accident. This was something else...

  • In the summer of 2014, a man named Mark Porter sat in the small lobby of a quick service oil change garage. As he waited for his oil change to wrap up, he sipped a cup of coffee and looked out the window. But a minute later, a strange man walked into the shop and despite there being plenty of empty seats, the man sat down right next to Mark. Mark thought this was odd, but he tried not to over think it and just kept on sipping his coffee. The strange man started talking to Mark, just small talk, and Mark responded politely. But when his car was finally done, Mark was very relieved to grab his keys and get out of there. As Mark drove home, he couldn't help but feel like that strange guy was off in some way, there had to be a reason why he just randomly sat down next to Mark despite the open seats, and then why had he tried so hard to strike up a conversation? It all just seemed very odd but by the time Mark got home, he had forgotten about the guy. However, the guy had not forgotten about Mark, because Mark was right to be suspicious. That strange man had a very specific reason for doing what he did, and it was about to have massive ripple effects.

  • On July 16, 2011 in Colusa County, California, 7-year-old Fabian Ayala sat in his father's truck while his dad worked on a farm nearby. Suddenly, the ground starting to shake, and the windshield inside the truck shattered, sending glass flying onto Fabian. Fabian closed his eyes and tried to protect himself with his arms, and then finally when all the shaking stopped, he leapt out of the truck and looked around to figure out what had just happened. But when he looked down the road in front of him, he saw something on the ground that at first he just couldn't believe was real. But as he got closer, he realized it was, and he knew what he was looking at would haunt him for the rest of his life.

  • This story is a fan favorite that was previously published as Episode 8.

    On Christmas Eve in 1992, an 18-year-old woman named Danita Gullette stepped outside of her place of work into the freezing Dayton, Ohio night air, and began walking toward her mother's house. After a few minutes, Danita decided to call her mother to ask her something that couldn't wait until she arrived. So Danita stopped at a payphone, slipped a few coins into the phone's coin slot, then dialed the number she knew by heart. At her mother's house, the phone started to ring, but when Danita's sister picked up the receiver, the phone was silent. Around the same time, the Dayton police received a call about a disturbance at a payphone in town. This would be the start of one of the most incomprehensible crime sprees in American history.

  • On the night of August 22nd, 2004, in an extremely affluent neighborhood in Florida, millionaire lawyer John Sutton dragged himself across the floor of his bedroom. He couldn't see anything, and his head was in agonizing pain, but somehow, someway he still managed to pull himself up to his feet, and then he staggered his way through the house and made it out the front door to safety. However, there was still someone else in the house behind him. Moments later, a Miami SWAT team entered John's house, and they would make a horrifying discovery in the guest bedroom – one that would stun the wealthy South Florida community, where John and his family had lived and worked for over four decades.

  • Late one night in the spring of 1937, a young woman stumbled into her apartment building, drunk after a long night of partying with friends. She made her way up the steps, and reached her apartment door. And after she opened it up, she stepped inside, and her little dog ran up to her and she gave it a little pat, and then she walked toward her bedroom. But the moment she stepped foot into that pitch black room, something felt off. It was too quiet. But before she could figure out what was going on, something heavy came flying out of the darkness and hit her on the face. For a moment, the woman just stood there stunned. Then a second later, hands emerged from the darkness.

  • One summer day in 1978, a man came home from work to his house in a nice neighborhood in Illinois. He went inside the front door and called out to his wife, but she didn't call back. The man looked around the house and was annoyed that it was so dirty. His wife had said she was going to spend the day cleaning, and it seemed like she had not. But after searching the house, he had not found his wife yet, and so he stared to wonder if she was okay. The only place left to check for her was in the basement, so he opened the door and began walking down the stairs. When he got down there, he would come face-to-face with a nightmare.

  • At around 9:00 PM on September 13th, 2006, a college student walked towards her friend’s apartment in the small town of Valley City, North Dakota. She walked up the steps and was about to knock on her friend's door, when she was hit with this really powerful chemical smell. She looked around wondering where the smell was coming from, and that's when she realized it was coming from her friend's apartment. More confused than worried, the friend knocked on the door, but there was no answer. So she reached down and tried the handle, and it was unlocked, so she opened the door. And when she looked inside, she began to scream.
