These stories will read like fiction but they're actually all true. In fact, some cases are so weird that you'll swear that these people stepped into the Twilight Zone. Others simply make for some rather interesting and unbelievable stories, proving once more than real life is so bizarre, you don't actually need sci-fi or fantasy stories.
The Phantom Killer
In 1946, the Phantom Killer stalked the citizens of Texarkana, Arkansas like a deranged Jason Voorhees by torturing, sexually assaulting and killing people. Only three out of eight victims survived and he was never caught. Ironically, his M.O. is similar to the Zodiac Killer but no connection between the two was ever found.
The Wreck Of The Titan
In 1898, Morgan Robertson wrote a novel about a ship called the Titan which was deemed unsinkable but got struck by icebergs and sank in the Atlantic Ocean in April. Ironically, the story is virtually identical to what happened to the Titanic 14 years later.
The Nightmarish Gay Cruise
The company Bel Ami was promised that 11 of its attractive models would get free cabins, food and safe passage on a 7-day Mediterranean cruise in exchange for entertaining the passengers on a gay cruise held by RSVP Vacations. But when the models proved too much of a distraction, the company stranded them in war-torn Tunisia with no way home.
