TOP 10 UNSOLVED MYSTERIES PART 1

This list comprises the most famous Unsolved Mysteries known to man that really defy rational explanation.

The Babushka Lady

During the analysis of the film footage of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, a mysterious lady was spotted. She was wearing a brown overcoat and a scarf on her head. Her nickname arose from the headscarf she wore similar to scarves worn by elderly Russian women.

The woman appeared to be holding something in front of her face which is believed to be a camera. Even though the shooting had already taken place and most of her surrounding witnesses took cover, she can be seen still standing with the camera at her face. She was observed standing on the grass between Elm and Main streets.

The FBI publicly requested the woman to come forward and give them the footage she shot that day but she never did.

Till this day she nor the film she may have taken have been positively identified.

The Zodiac Killer

The Zodiac Killer was a serial killer who operated in Northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The killer's identity remains unknown.

The Zodiac murdered victims in Benicia, Vallejo, Lake Berryessa and San Francisco between December 1968 and October 1969. Four men and three women between the ages of 16 and 29 were targeted.

The killer originated the name "Zodiac" in a series of taunting letters sent to the local Bay Area press. These letters included four cryptograms (or ciphers). Of the four cryptograms sent, only one has been solved.

The Zodiac Killer's crimes, letters and cryptograms to police and newspapers inspired many movies, novels, television productions and other serial killers but the identity of the killer until now remains a mystery.

The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and surface vessels are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

Popular culture has attributed these disappearances to the paranormal, time warps, ufo's, Atlantis and other spiritual explanations..

There is still no explanation for the unusual large number of disappearances in the area.

Jack The Ripper

In the later half of 1888, London was terrorized by a series of murderers in the east end (largely in the Whitechapel area). The name originated in a letter, written by someone claiming to be the murderer, that was disseminated in the media. The letter is widely believed to have been a hoax, and may have been written by a journalist in a deliberate attempt to heighten interest in the story.

The victims were typically female prostitutes who had their throats cut and bodies mutilated. In some cases the bodies were discovered just minutes after the ripper had left the scene. The removal of internal organs from at least three of the victims led to proposals that their killer possessed anatomical or surgical knowledge.

The police at the time had many suspects but could never find enough evidence to convict anyone.

In modern times there has been some speculation that Prince Albert Victor was the murderer. Even with modern police investigation methods, no further light has been shed on the murders till this day.

The Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich manuscript, described as "the world's most mysterious manuscript", is a work which dates to the early 15th century, possibly from northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in 1912.

Some pages are missing, but the current version comprises about 240 vellum pages, most with illustrations. Much of the manuscript resembles herbal manuscripts of the time period, seeming to present illustrations and information about plants and their possible uses for medical purposes. However, most of the plants do not match known species, and the manuscript's script and language remain unknown and unreadable.
