Some crimes stay a mystery no matter how hard people try to solve them. Who was Jack the Ripper? What happened to Amelia Earhart? Who killed JonBenét Ramsey? Where did D.B. Cooper disappear to? People have been asking some of these questions for years—and while there are a lot of theories, so far, there’s been no luck in solving them. Are certain crimes impossible to solve, or are people not looking in the right places? Are the answers out there for these cold cases?
These stories explore unsolved crimes old and new. Is there evidence lost to history? Are there people out there keeping secrets? Are some people just really good at hiding? These stories feed into innate human curiosity. There’s something unsettling about not having all the answers and it’s only natural to try and find them. Some questions have become impossible to answer, but the stories are fascinating nonetheless.
