An Injured Intruder
“I had been living with my godparents at the time. It was around 6 p.m. and my godfather gets back from work and asks why there is blood near the pool in the backyard. I had been in the room right next to the pool the whole time so I had no idea what he was talking about. We pull up the security footage and it shows a man jumping the fence in broad daylight, cutting himself with the barbed wire, and looking for ways to get into the house through the back. I was maybe 10 feet away from him at one point and did not hear a thing. Scary to think what could’ve happened if a window was open.” —Reddit user just-stoic
A Person Who Never Left The House
“Last week we had to call the cops when my girlfriend’s cellphone was stolen off the porch of our apartment which is a room sectioned off on the first floor of an old mansion with a fenced in balcony/porch. Officer asked to see surveillance tapes and the maintenance guy let us come along and watch to help with time frames and narrow down the footage. Unfortunately, we never saw the person who took her phone. Right about the time we expected to see someone grab the phone, however, we did see a man (not a resident, there are four of us and we all know each other) who appeared to be running from something frantically and at full force enter the only door of the building and never leave even after over 24 hours of footage.” —Reddit user muzau.
11 CrAn Elevator Meltdown
When guests of the Hotel Cecil in Los Angeles complained of low water pressure in their rooms, employees went up to the roof to check out the hotel’s water tanks. Instead of faulty wiring or a broken pipe, they found the dead body of Elisa Lam, a young woman who’d been traveling alone. Police deemed her death a drowning. But before she died, Lam appeared in some odd security footage taken in an elevator. In it, she seemingly speaks to someone, presses all the buttons, and peaks her head out as though looking for a person she’s scared of. The video has been scrutinized by law enforcement and conspiracy theorists.
