Unsolved mysteries are some of the most exciting and terrifying stories in the world. Disappearances and deaths that have no easy answer are passed on for generations, hoping that one day a new piece of evidence or clue will surface. Some of the most famous unsolved murders have been:
- The Zodiac Killings,
- The Black Dahlia,
- JonBenét Ramsay.
Though these have been much publicized (and fictionalized) over the years, there are also many unsolved cases that appear even more puzzling thanks to our increased reliance on security cameras around the world. These people are caught hours before their disappearances (or deaths) through multiple cameras. The most eerie part is how clueless they seem as to what’s about to happen, as if nothing was wrong.
While the list of unsolved cases is always growing, here are five of the weirdest instances in which the victim was caught on camera:
1. Jacky Sutton was working for the Institute of War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) when she headed to the airport in Istanbul for a flight to Iraq. She was the director of the organization in Iraq, and a career journalist who once worked as a producer for the BBC.
Sutton missed her flight connection, couldn’t afford another ticket and became distraught. She eventually killed herself in the bathroom with her own shoelace. Or, at least, that’s what the Turkish media reported.
People who knew Sutton doubted that she would take her own life after missing a flight. After she died, reports surfaced showing that she clearly had the means to buy another ticket. She was found carrying thousands of dollars in cash and two credit cards.
Sutton also was spotted on security footage with shopping bags just moments before apparently taking her own life. Friends and colleagues pointed to this detail as evidence she was not close to suicide.
