YOU HAVE HEARD OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE BUT WHAT IS THE ALASKA TRIANGLE? Like most people, you’ve no doubt been entranced by the idea of the Bermuda Triangle since childhood. A small region in the world where people simply vanish without a trace and with no explanation. The Bermuda Triangle is a fascinating piece of mythology that has captured the world’s imagination for a lifetime and entered the common lexicon. But the reality is that more people go missing in the Alaska Triangle than the Bermuda Triangle… Perhaps not surprising given that Alaska has America’s most unforgiving wilderness. But the figures are simply jaw dropping. Over 16,000 people have gone missing, without a trace, in the Alaskan Triangle since 1988. So, what is the cause of the vanishings within the Alaskan Triangle and why are so many people just disappearing? The biggest attention that the area has attracted, and the most notable disappearance was the disappearance of American politicians in October 1972. T

BIBLE JOHN - GLASGOW AND BRIMSTONE

BIBLE JOHN John and his three victims. A Bible quoting serial killer stalks his prey within a decaying city that had fallen far beyond its once glorious past — it sounds like the plot of a Hollywood movie but this is the real life story of Bible John — a predator lurking in the shadows of the 1960's in the Scottish city of Glasgow. To date John has yet to be found — and while he may not have the worldwide infamy of Jack the Ripper, his story is no less deplorable. He has been described as a “Scottish Zodiac”. Glasgow is now one of the most remarkable cities in Britain — a rejuvenation which began in the 1980's has served the city well. However, in the 1960's Glasgow was at the time suffering from a decline caused by a number of issues which emerged in the aftermath of World War 2. There was urban decay, rapid de-industrialisation and high unemployment and to make matters worse there was Bible John. 1960's Glasgow John was linked to three murders (as always with unidenti

THE MYSTERIOUS ELEPHANT KILLER IN BOTSWANA

THE MYSTERIOUS ELEPHANT KILLER IN BOTSWANA – ARE THE BOTSWANA GOVERNMENT POISONING THE ELEPHANTS? MEDIUM LINK Experts have warned about a mystery elephant killer which has left herds of elephants in Botswana “decimated”. Speculation was initially aimed at poachers, but the tusks were not found to be missing from the carcasses and experts suggested that the sudden death was caused by either a disease or a virus. The rate and seemingly mass-graves of elephants is causing dramatic alarm for conservationists and hitting the Botswana economy.   The Elephant deaths began in May 2020 and occurred in the Okavango Delta over the next two months. Botswana is currently a home to a third of African Elephants; with the current population of elephants in a worrying decline. The “mass graves” of Elephants were first spotted when conservationists took a flight over the delta and then spotted 169 elephant carcasses over the next three hours. A month later the total deaths were at 350. Despite the

EVE STRATFORD & LYNNE WEEDON - THE HORRORS OF 1975

A MURDERED BUNNY & A FORGOTTEN SERIAL KILLER EVE STRATFORD One case which had received notoriety in the UK was the murder of Eve Stratford (aged just 21), which was remarkably linked to the murder of Lynne Weedon (aged just 16) after thirty years. In 2004 the two killings were discovered to have been committed by the same perpetrator using DNA testing. And so, two murders across different parts of a sprawling London were established to have been a committed by a serial killer – who for forty years had been hiding in plain sight. Eve’s murder occurred on the 18 th March 1975 while Lynne’s was almost six months after on the 10 th September 1975 both occurring in suburban London. There was also potential links to a third murder of Lynda Farrow who was killed in her home in the January of that year with many similarities to the other two. The three murders were all in the Greater London area of Leyton, Hounslow and Chigwell. The double murders occurred in 1975 and it is c

Harlow, Essex 15 th October 2012. Dr Abdul Shakoor was a Pakistani immigrant living in the small English town of Harlow when on the 15 th October 2012 he lost his wife and five children in a house fire ruled by Essex Police as an arson attack.

https://www.justice4jody.com/ “I just feel like there’s somebody out there that knows something, and we just haven’t gotten to that person yet.” Jenny Carrieri – Jody’s twin sister. It has been 24 years since Jody LeCornu was murdered in her car in a Baltimore parking lot at 3 in the morning.  The day was March 2 nd 1996. Jody was 23 years old when she was unexpectedly shot in the back. The killer has not been found and the hunt for justice continues to this day. This unfortunately is a tale of police incompetence and the desperate sadness of a grieving twin. Three new billboards are now offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and they are going up across Baltimore to try to lead to more information before the case goes any colder. Jenny can claim inspiration for setting up the billboards from the Oscar winning film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri which itself was inspired by true events. Jenny has tragically suffered with insurmountable grief
