Amy Fisher was sixteen years old when she fell in love with a 38-year-old man. Amy was born on August 24, 1974. She didn’t have a great childhood and was constantly trying to get her dad’s attention and validation (Which he never seemed to give her). This may have lead to teenage Amy seeking the attention of a much older man.
Amy and her dad were bringing his car into a local auto repair shop when they met Joey Buttafuoco.
Joey was a married man who had met his wife, Mary Jo back when he was in high school during…
Nannie Doss was born in Blue Mountain, Alabama in 1905. She had four siblings and was close with her mother. However, her father was a controlling and unkind man. He forced her to do things that she didn’t want to do like working on the family farm instead of attending school. Because of this, she grew up hating him.
At the age of seven, Doss had a pretty serious head injury that she later blamed all of her mental health issues on. Doss and her family had been taking a train ride to Southern Alabama to visit family when the…
Have you ever wondered if a human can actually survive being swallowed by a whale? Well, now I have your answer.
On June 11th, 2021, Michael Packard was swallowed by a humpback whale. Packard is a 56-year-old lobster driver who picks lobster off of the seafloor in Cape Cod Massachusetts. He has been doing this for many years and is a very experienced diver.
Packard said that he had positioned his boat off of the Herring Cove beach and was surrounded by plenty of other fishers. …
Chowchilla in the 1970s was a quiet farming town where nothing exciting ever happened. It was certainly not the kind of town you would expect an entire bus full of children to go missing from.
It was one of the last days of summer school. 26 kids ages ranging from 5–14 were being taken back to their homes by bus. The bus driver was a man named Frank Edward Ray, who often went by Ed. Ed was previously a farmer and became a bus driver who all the kids loved. …
The Iroquois Theatre was fireproof. At least, that’s what everyone thought. The theatre was newly built in Chicago, Illinois, and was opened on November 23rd, 1903. The building was stunning. It had massive walls, long marble stairs, and beautiful mahogany wood trim. Critics and theatre-goers were all very excited to see this architectural masterpiece built, but they had no idea what devastation it would bring.
The theatre wasn’t as structurally perfect as it looked. Fire safety standards have changed significantly over the years, mostly due to accidents like this one, but the theatre still did not meet the safety standards…
A small predominately religious town called Thatcher, Arizona was the kind of place that left their doors unlocked and their windows open at night. In other words, people felt safe living in this close-knit farming community. So when 29-year-old Mary Ann was brutally murdered in her home, it was a major shock to the locals.
In the early morning hours of July 9th, 1995, someone came in the back door of Mary Ann’s home and violently attacked her. She was a single mother with two daughters, who were only four years old and eighteen months old at the time.
The right to a fair trial is something everyone deserves. After all, everyone is innocent until proven guilty, right? You would think, but there are many criminal cases that would suggest otherwise. Here is another.
The year was 1931 and tension over race was high. On March 25th, roughly 24 people were riding on a freight train (illegally), traveling between Chattanooga and Memphis. There was a mix of African Americans and Caucasian people on this train, but riding the same train definitely did not mean that they would all get along.
Haywood Patterson was an 18-year-old boy riding the train…

Josh was born in Pennsylvania on March 17th, 1984. He didn’t have a ‘good’ childhood by any means. His father, Steve, was both an alcoholic and a drug addict who would abuse Josh and his mother frequently. Josh and his mother reported later that they were both terrified of Steve and hated living with him. Steve ruled the house with an iron fist and forced his family to follow very strict rules.

At some point, the family decided to move to Jacksonville, Florida…
While researching this random but fun topic, I quickly realized that the Scorpio zodiac sign has no shortage of incredibly infamous serial killers. So, let’s just jump right in.

Crime: Manson created his own cult called the Manson Family. Manson and his ‘family’ were responsible for the death of seven people including a famous film actress by the name Shanon Tate. Manson had been able to brainwash his ‘family members’ into killing random people because he selected naive young women to join his cult. Mason hoped that these deaths would spark a race war.
