The Mysterious: Black Knight Satellite

          Strap in, readers. This month’s mystery brings us back into Earth’s orbit to examine an object there. According to some, this object is an extraterrestrial satellite used to monitor mankind. According to others, it’s classified NASA technology preparing for some sort of intergalactic war. What is the so-called Black Knight Satellite, and how did it [...]

The Mysterious: Lewis Carroll the Ripper

          For this month’s mystery, we are heading into a place where the literary world and the true crime world intersect. This is by far one of the most absurd and baffling theories concerning one of the biggest mysteries in the history of true crime. Many have come to terms with the fact that we may [...]

The Mysterious: Hunter S. Thompson’s Death

          In the past on this blog, we have discussed how creatives, especially writers, seem to be susceptible to mental illness and prone to suicide (not sure what I’m talking about? Read The Sylvia Plath Effect here). So, why has there been a surge of people believing that Hunter S. Thompson’s death was orchestrated by outside [...]

The Mysterious: The Lost Cosmonauts

          For this month’s mystery post, we’re heading back to Conspiracy Land. History will tell us that Yuri Gagarin, a Soviet astronaut, was the first man in space - but what if this was a well crafted lie? According to some, the Soviet Union sent other cosmonauts into space before Gagarin - but covered those spaceflights [...]

The Mysterious: The Philadelphia Experiment

          This month’s mystery takes us back to the strange world of conspiracy theories. What we’ll be discussing today is perhaps the most gruesome and more enduring legends surrounding the United States Military. Did the military truly cause a ship to teleport in a misguided attempt to develop invisibility technology? Did poor souls truly end up [...]

The Mysterious: The Pollock Sisters

          This month’s mystery is something we haven’t touched on yet here at the Morbid Library - reincarnation. The case of the Pollock Twins has been hailed as the most compelling case of reincarnation - but questions swirl around the two young girls’ circumstances and the validity of their claims. Let’s explore. The Tale           This story [...]

The Mysterious: The Titanic Switch Theory

          For this month’s mystery, we’re dipping our toes into the world of conspiracy theories. For this first venture into such a....widely varied (and often sinister) topic, I wanted to cover something that is not destructive and somewhat debunked. This month, we’ll look at whether the Titanic was actually the ship that sank on April 14, [...]

The Mysterious: Agatha Christie’s Disappearance

          This month’s mystery is another literary one. Agatha Christie is one of the best mystery writers to have ever lived, creating beloved characters that live on in pop culture today. However, despite the number of mysteries Christie penned, one she lived through has lived on as the most confounding and complex enigmas in the literary [...]

The Mysterious: Shugborough Monument

          This month’s archeological and historical mystery - the first of the year! - is a strange one. Reading about it has pushed me to the edge of a migraine, mostly because there are many, many people who believe they have solved it. I hope you’re interested in codes and ciphers, because we’re about to wade [...]

The Mysterious: The “Lost” Maya

          This month’s mystery is a historical mystery with a dash of archaeology. We’ll be discussing what happened to the great Mayan civilization. More importantly, why do all of the impressive, expansive cities found within the Mayan Empire seem abandoned. And why, frustratingly, do people consider the Mayan Civilization lost? Who Were the Maya?           We’re going [...]
