Joe “The Cannibal” Metheny
In 1996, Joe Roy Metheny was charged with murdering three women. He confessed to killing a total of ten people, but murder was only the beginning of his sickening crimes. He would stalk prostitutes and other women near where groups of homeless people lived. He lured two of these women to his trailer where he killed them. He then dismembered the bodies and partially ate them. The rest of their remains were ground up and mixed with burgers which he sold at his food stand.
Tarred and Feathered
This is what a victim sentenced to being tarred and feathered looks like. Tarring and Feathering is a form of mob justice where the accused is usually strippe to the waist and coated with tar. Some accounts describe the tar as hot and even boiling and sometimes it could be pine tar. The accused is then either forced to roll in feathers or have the feathers showered over them This punishment dates all the way back to King Richard I of England in 1189. Tarring and feathering was employed during The American Revolution and during the 1700’s and 1800’s in America. Although not as common today there is a recorded account of tarring and feathering being implemented in Ireland as recently as 2007.
The Doll that Aged While In Storage
Most forgotten and packed away dolls show their age by cracking or losing their hair, or fading in color. This doll was different. It was a young girl’s favorite toy for a while, but like most childhood playthings it ended up packed away in the attic. The young girl grew up and moved away. When her parents decided to sell the house they discovered the doll in its attic exile. The doll appeared to have aged like a human in its eleven years of storage. The face was wrinkled in the way a human face wrinkles with age. The most startling change was in the eyes. They no longer seemed glassy and doll-like, but very wise and human. Most collectors still argue that it was normal decay and nothing ore. Other wonder if a spirit did not attach itself the to the doll and cause the changes.
Tyler Hadley: Commits Double Murder Just to Throw a Party
Teenagers in Port St. Lucie, Florida complain about having nothing to do just like teenagers in other towns across America.

The photo above was taken in Tyler’s garage after he showed his friend the bodies of his murdered parents. Tyler had beaten his parents to death with a hammer and put their bodies in the spare bedroom. He had showed his friend the blood spots in the living room and leading to the guest bedroom. He then posted on social media that he was having a party that night. The party was attended by hundreds of teenagers who didn’t suspect anything was wrong. A neighbor finally called the police at two in the morning to complain of noise. The bodies of Tyler’s parents were found exactly as he’d left them while his friends drank, smoked, and partied all night.
