a true crime story

Dylan was intimidated by girls. He did the sound board for theater, where he liked being around other “weirdos,” but in general did not know how to interact with other people. He liked learning, but not school. He had girl friends, but never a girlfriend. (Tom Klebold says Dylan would go out with a group of friends; what Tom called “group dating.”) 
  It wasn’t a romantic relationship but in the summer of 1997 Dylan met Devon Adams through friends she had at BlackJack. Devon, two years younger, would be entering Columbine as a freshman. 
  By the time school started Devon was friendly enough with Eric and Dylan to have breakfast and lunch with them. Dylan was not a morning person, and would sleep until noon or 1:00 p.m. on the weekends if he could. For breakfast he would eat donuts and orange juice, or soda pop. Sitting in the middle of the cafeteria, Eric and Dylan would do class work. Or at least pretend to. They could quote every line from the movie Natural Born Killers and Dylan, usually dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, preferred to talk. Devon also says she was marked for speaking with Dylan: A jock would say, “Why are you talking to that faggot? Are you a dyke?" 

Devon never saw the violence when Dylan was alive. When they whacked each other with foam noodles in the pool, it was all fun and games. Other guys tackled her when they played football, but not Dylan. And when she cut her leg on the field, Dylan flipped out. He called a time out and washed her leg off. He didn’t like dogs and was scared of Devon’s Siberian Husky, but dealt with the animal, again, out of respect for her. 
  "He didn’t want to disrupt anything, you know?” Devon says. “He was always very respectful of everything." 
  Devon did see flashes of anger in Dylan. It might be a "dumb” occasion like getting a bad test grade. Or a spat over something inconsequential. At first, Dylan suppressed the anger. “I remember one time when he and I got in a fight cause I said something I shouldn’t have to him; I was just really, really angry at him, I don’t remember why, I was just mad at him, and he just walked away, and I don’t know if he ever got really mad about it. But he just walked away, and he just stayed away from me for about a week. And then it was fine. We talked about it. It was fine. But he was really, really upset for a while.”

The Dyatlov Pass Incident occurred in the Ural mountains of Russia nearly 60 years ago. 9 experienced hikers were found frozen in the snow with unusual injuries and even more unusual circumstances surrounding their deaths.

A hiking group from the Ural PolyTechnical institute, lead by Igor Dyatlov, were hiking to Ortem, a category three hiking trip(the most difficult) The trip was no worry to the hikers(originally 8 men and 2 women) as they were all experienced hikers and skiers.

Before they set out on what would be the last leg of their journey one of the men, Yuri Yudin, did not feel well and had to leave early. This illness would save his life.

The group of 9 set up camp on the base of the mountain called Kholat Syakhl, also known as “Dead Mountain) in Mansi. It is unknown why they camped on the slope and not down near the forest where they would have more shelter from the elements. By the next morning all the hikers would be dead. Some of the bodies wuld not be found for 3 months.

Here is where their deaths become a mystery. It was determined they froze to death(6) or died of fatal injuries(3) however their bodoes were scattered up to 3000 meters from their tent, which had been cut open from the inside. 

Yuri Krivonischenko and Yuri Doreschenko were found 2000 meters down the hill huddled together with a dead fire. Branches on the tree they were under were broken up to 5 meters high suggesting one of them climbed up the tree. They were both shoe less and only in their underwear. Between the cedar tree and the camp the bodies of Igor Dyatlov,  Zinaida Kolomogorova, and Rustem Slobodin were found in positions suggesting they tried to return to the camp. All of these bodies were found February 26, 1959.

It wasn’t until May 6 that year that the last four hikers would be found dead under 4 meters of snow in a ravine 2075 meters away from the tent. Lyudmilla Dubinina had been found face down in the ravine missing her tongue, lips, and eyes. She had also sustained a major chest fracture along with Zolotaryov, though neither had bruising on their bodies or soft tissue to suggest anything causing the fracture. Thibeaux-Brignolles had also sustained a major skull fracture. The injuries Thibeaux-Brignolles, Zolotaryov, and Dubinina sustained that lead to their deaths were made with a force as strong as a car crash said  Dr. Boris Vozrozhdenny when asked.  Those who had died first had relinquished their clothing to the other as Zolotaryov was wearing Dubinina’s faux fur coat.

The nine hikers were the only people on the mountain that night, they had all died within 6-8 hours of their last meal, and they all left the tent by their own accord. Some hikers camping on a mountain a few kilometers away reported seeing strange orange orbs in the sky that night and the last picture on Krioneschenko’s camera showed some blurry orbs. It was also reported that at the funerals for the hikers their bodies held a deep tan, an almost orange one. Ultimately their death was ruled to be caused by an unknown force and may remain a mystery forever.

Harris sticks his head under a table and points a gun, maybe the carbine rifle, at John Savage. Savage scoots away. Harris points the gun again. Savage scoots. Harris stands up. 
“Who is under the table?” Harris asks. “Identify yourself." 
"It’s me, John,” says Savage, who knows Harris and Klebold from classes, but considers them more acquaintances than friends. 
“John Savage?” Klebold says. 
“Yes,” Savage replies. 
“Hi,” Klebold says. 
“Hi Dylan,” says Savage. “What are you doing?" 
"Oh, just killing people,” Klebold says, shrugging. 
“Are you going to kill me?” Savage asks. 
Klebold looks at him a second. “No dude, just run,” he says. “Just get out of here." 
He runs outside, sprinting at top speed.

The Ten Bells is a historic pub located at the corner of Commercial Street and Fournier Street in London. It’s most likely most notable for its association with infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Two victims of this elusive killer, Annie Chapman and Mary Jane Kelly, were frequent guests of the pub. The two sex-workers would often pick up clients outside the Ten Bells.

On the evening of 7 September, 1888, Annie finished off her drink and walked out into the chilly winter air. Little did she know, she would be Jack the Ripper’s next victim. The following morning, her bloody and mutilated body was discovered on Haybury Street.

It’s no surprise that there is a plethora of paranormal activity reported from the Ten Bells. Staff and guests alike have recalled seeing an elderly man clad in Victorian-era clothing loitering around the pub before disappearing, seemingly into thin air. Ohers have reported that when the clock strikes midnight on 31 December, a shadowy figure can be seen jumping from Westminster Bridge. This shadowy figure is said to be Jack the Ripper himself.

In July of 1995 JonBenet won her first title, Little Miss Charlevoix. For the rest of the summer she attended multiple home town parades in Michigan, perched on the back of a convertible. The little girl proudly wore her sash, and enthusiastically waved to parade goers as she passed by. JonBenet had been so excited about her first win that she had small posters of herself wearing her sash and crown made up to pass out to all of her family and friends. With the help of her mother, JonBenet signed each photo with her name and a big XOXO.

The story behind the dishes picture dated March 1975.

“The Year was 1974. I was an elementary school teacher who had temporarily left my teaching career to return to the University of Utah to earn a Master of Education Degree. I began attending church in a “student branch” (a congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, comprised of unmarried college students.)  It was there that I met four young men who shared an apartment not far from my home : Wynn Bartholomew, John Homer, Larry Anderson, and Barry Kraus. Wynn was attending law school at the University of Utah. The apartment where these four men lived was quite large, and became the “social center” or “gathering place” for many of the members of our branch : We went there often for parties.

John Homer and Larry Anderson were “stake missionaries” at the time. One day Wynn told John and Larry about a student at the Law School who was possibly a potential convert and who might be interested in having religious discussions with them; his name was Ted Bundy. John and Larry began giving religious lessons to Ted at their apartment. They invited Ted to come to church and meet the rest of the congregation;  Ted was always invited to the apartment for social gatherings as well.

Eventually Ted committed to being baptized. Many members of the student branch attended the baptism to show their support. Our branch president, Michael Preece, interviewed Ted prior to baptism… John Homer performed the baptism and his missionary companion, Larry Anderson, pronounced the confirmation. Little did anyone know what dark secrets Ted was hiding!

The ratio of women to men in our student branch was about 4 to 1, so new men coming to our branch were always of interest, and Ted was no exception. He was polite, courteous, intelligent, and attractive. Many of the young women wanted to date Ted; he became quite popular in our group. Ted attended some of our social gatherings, and afterwards, Wynn remembered that to him, Ted seemed quiet and mysterious; at social gatherings he would sit in the background and just watch people silently.

In March 1975, I organized a birthday party for one of our branch members, Sam Green; the party was held at Wynn’s apartment. I was busy washing dishes when Ted walked over and stood beside me. “You look like you could use some help” he offered. I was flattered that he would notice me, and hoped that perhaps he would ask me out on a date. My camera was sitting nearby, and I handed it to Wynn and asked, “Wynn, take my picture with Ted!” Ted pointed a rinsing gun at me as we posed together. It was one of the few pictures taken of Ted outside a courtroom or jail.” - Carol Hall Bartholomew

Grandparents of Eric Harris


Richard Pool was born in 1922 and passed away in 2015 at the age of 93.

Elaine Pool was born in 1924.


On the day of Columbine, at around 6:00 p.m., Pool neighbor Steve Ferguson noticed cars belonging to Pool’s relatives when he got home from work, but he didn’t go over to the Pool’s home that day. He called them two days after. 

He said: ,,Elaine, so what’s going on? I noticed the cars over there the night of Columbine. Did something tragic happen to a grandson or granddaughter?’’

Elaine, Eric’s grandmother, said: ,,Yes, I had a grandson that was killed, that was killed in the Columbine shootings.’’

He expressed his condolences and extended his sympathy. Then he asked: ,,Which one was he?’’

Elaine broke down and said: ,,My gosh, he was the killer.’’

He then asked the name of the grandson.

,,Harris’’, his grandmother said.

,,His name is Harris.’


The weekend after Columbine, Ferguson was doing chores outside his house. Richard Pool, Eric’s grandfather, came over with tears streaming down his cheeks. He was emotionally shot, he tried to explain a little bit what was going on.

Ferguson said: ,,You don’t have to explain.’’ Again, he extented his condolences and his feelings. ,,This has got to be tearing you apart.’’

Mr. Pool acknowledged that, and he just said it’s tough. He said it’s eatin him alive. He said he can’t sleep.

Mr. Pool said: ,,It will never be the same for us, ever.’’ 

Ferguson does not believe the Pools mentioned their grandson ever again.

Ted Bundy talked quite vaguely about his sexual experiences with Dr. Carlisle, during his 90 day evaluation.  He told him how he wasn’t as sexually experienced as most teenagers his age, also about dating life during his college years and how he did not lose his virginity until he was 22 years old.

Ted: I dated some girls in junior high. I went to parties with the socially adept.

Al: Did you kiss any girls?

Ted: Yeah.

Al: Did you engage in any sexual touching with girls?

Ted: Uh huh. Yeah, I did.

Al: Well Ted, what happened? I understand you didn’t go on any dates during high school. You went to a dance with a girl in the 12th grade but that was about it. It appears there was a change in your personality. You began dating and you had an interest in girls including kissing and getting sexually involved but then you stopped. What happened?

Ted: [Pause.] Well, gee Al, I don’t know what it could have been.

Al: Why didn’t you go on any dates?

Ted: My mother was able to pay the bills for the home but there wasn’t a lot of money. I had to earn my own spending money.

Al: But you only went to two dances. Why not more?

Ted: I had neutral feelings about girls. There was no inhibitions or fear, just a lack of motivation. I didn’t have a car at the time. When i got out of school I got a lucrative job which allowed me to get my first car, a 1933 Plymouth Coup. I was becoming an individual. 

Al: What was your social life like at the University of Washington?

Ted: At first I was fully involved with my studies.

Al: And then?

Ted: I went out with an Asian girl. It felt right because I was in Asian studies.

Al: How did that relationship work out?

Ted: After we went out a couple of times her father had a talk with me. He was very nice about it. He said that he wanted his daughter to marry a boy who was Asian. He thought our backgrounds would conflict too much.

Al: How did you feel about that?

Ted: It wasn’t a problem. I understood where he was coming from. During spring quarter, I met a girl and we developed a very intense relationship. I had a Volkswagen at that time but at times we used her car because mine wasn’t working very well. 

Al: What was her name?

Ted: Marjorie. (Pseudonym for Diane Edwards) 

Al: Tell me about her

Ted: We were both interested in intellectual topics and we got along very well. Her father was a vice president of an international company and they had a lot of money. She was an only child. Her parents were part of her everyday life. I got along with them. 

Al: How did that relationship work out?

Ted: She was well dressed. Well groomed. She had been a model at one time. She was very impressive and very appealing. I really enjoyed that. 

Al: So, did it work out?

Ted: No. She got her feelings hurt easily and the relationship strained over petty matters. I had a busboy job at the Seattle Yacht Club. Marjorie was older than me and she expected more financial security than what I could provide. I had no savings and was often broke. I felt insecure about our relationship. 

Al: Did you and Marjorie get intimate? Did the two of you have sex?

Ted: She was the first girl that I slept with but we didn’t have intercourse. I don’t think that either of us was ready for it.

Ted then talked about his political career in 1968 and how he lost his virginity.

Ted: [..] The campaign was a disaster. My social life and political life intertwined. One time we were out of town during the campaign. I went to a party as a representative of Fletcher and I was picked up by a woman and taken to her house. I was very drunk. During the night the girl came down and hopped in bed with me. That was my first sexual encounter. This girl was separated from her husband. She was hysterical. I had slept with Marjorie half a dozen times with no clothes on and we petted heavily but we didn’t have sex since she wasn’t on the pill. 

Al: Did that bother you not to have intercourse with Marjorie? 

Ted: No. She smoked and I didn’t. I liked classical music and she was more into rock.

Urban legends are as popular as ever, but the majority of the scary stories you’ve heard at sleepovers are based on at least a small grain of truth. One such tale that might have kept you awake at night is The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs, which tells of a young child-minder’s gruesome encounter with a crazed stalker. There are many adaptions of this 1960′s legend, with the general story line being that the babysitter receives several creepy phone calls from a man who keeps telling her to check on the children. Terrified, she calls the police who trace the call to the upstairs bathroom of the house. When the intruder is finally arrested, he has slaughtered all three children. While spine-tingling, you may be intrigued to know that this fictional story came from the very real murder of 15-year-old Janett Christman in 1950.

Janett was babysitting 3-year-old Gregory Romack at his home on West Boulevard and Stewart Road in Columbia, Missouri. At around 1:30 a.m, while Gregory was sleeping, and intruder entered through his bedroom window and proceeded to the downstairs living room where he raped, strangled and stabbed Janett. The crime scene was utterly horrific: the bottom picture is one of the less bloody photographs. Although a garden hose left outside was used to break the window, forensic investigators reported that the furniture and light fixtures near the window were totally undisturbed, making it impossible for him to have entered that way. This is likely to infer that the murderer attempted to make it look like the house had been broken into, when in reality, Christman probably opened the front door for someone she knew.

This case remains unsolved, with it’s prime suspect passing lie detector tests and successfully suing the police for his detainment.

The Amityville Ghost

In the early morning hours of 13 November, 1974, 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo Jr systematically shot and killed his father, mother, and his four siblings, as they slept in their beds of their Amityville, Long Island, New York home.

During his trial, he claimed that he had killed his family in self-defence because he had heard their voices plotting to kill him. But the story doesn’t end there: In December 1975, the Lutz family purchased the house and over the course of 28 days, they claimed they were plagued and terrorised by paranormal phenomena while living there, before fleeing the property. Some such claims included green slime running from the walls, hidden rooms, images of half headed demons, a demonic pig, as well as mysterious welts and wounds appearing out of nowhere.

After the family fled the macabre home, they called in investigators which was when the photograph above was snapped, apparently showing a ghost of a little boy peering out from behind the door; many believe it to be the ghost of 9-year-old John Matthew DeFeo. Whether the truth in this haunting case was stretched or even a hoax all together, it still remains one of the most sensationalised ghost stories worldwide, even inspiring multiple books and movies.

He was 6 weeks at the Yacht Club and they let him go. He wasn’t supposed to eat the food, but he was always in the pantry eating all the fresh foods and whipped cream he could get and all the fancy foods he could eat. He would grab them and take them to his locker.” From Mrs Ferris conversation with Al Carlisle. Mrs Ferris was an elderly woman who was a  pastry chief at the Seattle Yacht Club who helped Ted getting a few jobs in 1967.

In another report from investigators, Mrs Ferris informed that Ted would often befriend older people, gain their confidence, then as an apparent favor, take items to the junkyard, or take their shopping list to the store, often not returning with food or money.

Kalief Browder: jailed for years without trial

On the 15th of May 2010, 16-year old Kalief Browder was arrested for allegedly stealing a backpack. He was sent to the infamous Rikers Island, one of the worst jails in the United States. Kalief was imprisoned for three years without trial, and spent most of it in solitary confinement. During his stay at Rikers Island, Kalief was severely abused and repeatedly beaten by both inmates and prison guards. Some of the incidents were caught on security cameras. Kalief struggled with his mental health and tried to commit suicide several times while in prison, he recalled officers encouraging him to do so by telling him: ‘‘… Go ahead and jump, you got it ready, right? If you don’t jump, we’re going to go in there anyway, so you might as well go ahead and jump...’’ Kalief Browder maintained his innocence, and his case eventually got dismissed in 2013. He was finally sent home. However, Kalief was traumatized by the abuse he had experienced in prison and his mental health was decreasing: ‘‘Before I went to jail, I didn’t know about a lot of stuff, and, now that I’m aware, I’m paranoid. I feel like I was robbed of my happiness.’’ Sadly, two years after his release, Kalief Browder committed suicide by hanging. The night before his suicide, Kalief told his mother: “Ma, I can’t take it anymore.

If you want to know more about this case, I recommend watching the Netflix original six-part docuseries ‘‘Time: The Kalief Browder Story’’. The series includes interviews with the Browder family, prison footage, interviews with Kalief after his release, his interrogation videos and more.

One of the most infamous french cold cases might reach a conclusion. On October 16th 1984, the body of 4-year old Gregory Villemin was found in a river, with his feet and hand tied with a cord. The little boy was kidnapped in the family home’s garden and his parents, Jean-Marie and Christine Villemin, received a chilling phone call informing them of his death. After that, the grieving parents received several letters from the killer, who was surnamed Le Corbeau (The Crow) by the media. 
Jean-Marie’s cousin Bernard Laroche was arrested based on handwriting analysis but soon released. Jean-Marie was convinced of his guilt and shot him dead. He later served 4 years for the murder.
In 1985, the child’s own mother was arrested. She too was eventually released and totally cleared in 1993. 
Nobody else was charged and the case remained unsolved and cold until yesterday (June 14th, 2017), when 3 other family members, Ginette Villemin (Gregory’s aunt) and Jacqueline and Marcel Jacob (brother of Gregory’s grandmother)  were arrested and suspected of complicity in the murder, failing to report a crime or helping a person at risk. None of them are suspected of the boy’s murder at the moment but they could provide the key of this 30-year old mystery.

“There is not just a psychological profile of school shooters, but an environmental one - one which fits both Eric and Dylan. School shootings overwhelmingly occur in suburbs and small towns, which may be rich in sports, shopping malls, and BMW’s, but poor in diversity and tolerance. Deviation from the white-bread norm is punished, and the high school campus is often the sole arbiter of adolescent status. A loser at school feels like a loser through and through. School shooters have no escape hatch, and nowhere else to turn for self-esteem. Opinions outside of school offered by a big city are not found in small towns and suburbs: There is no Hollywood Boulevard for the punk rockers.”
