In Germany, 1922, the murders of six people at the Hinterkaifeck farmstead shocked the nation. This wasn't just because of the gruesome nature of the case, but also because the case was so incredibly weird, and it remains unsolved to this day. Over 100 people were interviewed in the murder, but no one was ever arrested. No motive was ever established as to explain the murders. The previous maid had left 6 months earlier, saying the home was haunted. The new maid arrived only hours before the murders. It is believed that the perpetrator(s) remained at the farm for several days – someone had fed the cattle, and eaten food in the kitchen: the neighbours had also seen smoke from the chimney during the weekend. This photo depicts one of the victims as he lay in the house barn. 

3) The Dead Body Falling From Ceiling

The Time Traveler Photo

What is time travel ?

For centuries time travelling possibility has fascinated many philosophers, and scientists -Albert Einstein special  theory of  relativity, laid the foundation for the theoretical possibility of time travel. He qualified the theory as "special" because it refers only to uniform velocities (meaning to objects either at rest or moving at a constant speed). However there are many clues around the web that people were actually travelled through time and these are a series of  image that claim to be the evidence that time travel has already occur.

The above photo was taken in 1940. Some people say the hipster-looking fellow with the sunglasses on the right side of the photo is a time traveller because his hair, shades, clothing, and camera that didn't exist at the time.
