“We don’t know.” answers too many questions. But in this podcast, we don’t take “we don’t know” for an answer. Every Thursday, Unexplained Mysteries investigates the greatest mysteries of history and life on earth, because the answer “we don’t know” is always the scariest. Unexplained Mysteries is part of the Parcast Network and is a Cutler Media production.

In 1912, the nation was captivated by the saga of Bobby Dunbar, a four-year-old who disappeared from Louisiana. When a boy matching his description was discovered in Mississippi, the courts and the Dunbars both struggled to confirm if he was indeed the missing boy.
In the early morning hours of February 25, 1942, the sky above Los Angeles came alive. Residents rushed outside to see what looked like an enemy invasion. Spotlights lit up the sky, and anti-aircraft guns opened. But by the next morning, there was no evidence that anything had ever flown over the city.

Margaret Dunbar Cutright set out to discover if her ancestor Bobby Dunbar was actually the son her great-grandparents lost in 1912. What she found rocked her family to its very core.
An acupuncturist that can apparently turn human energy into fire? The science behind spontaneous human combustion might be more surprising than you think.
Stories of inexplicable fires have been around since the Bible, when a person erupting into flames meant they were a sinner. Now, spontaneous human combustion is considered a myth. But tell that to the family of Jeannie Saffin. In 1982, they watched her blow fire out her mouth after breakfast one morning...

It was rumored to be the only location on earth that would survive the apocalypse predicted by the ancient Mayans. For centuries, this mystical mountain peak in southern France has attracted New Age believers, ufologists, occultists, hippies, doomsday cults, and the curious.
Between 2007 and 2020, a total of 21 human feet have washed up on beaches throughout the Pacific Northwest. Some suggest a 2005 plane crash could account for some of the feet. Others attribute them to the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. Others see the feet as a warning—a product of gang intimidation.
In 2007, a little girl enjoying a beach day with her family made a gruesome discovery. A human foot had washed ashore—and it was far from the last. Over the past 13 years, 21 feet have been found in the region, and no one seems to know where they’re coming from…
Some believe there are legendary cryptids in the woods. Others believe a killer might be on the loose. But what makes the missing cases of Vermont’s Bennington Triangle so intriguing is that, 70 years later, there’s little evidence to suggest people didn’t simply vanish into thin air…
In 1945, college student Paula Jean Weldon went missing near the southern Vermont town of Bennington. Over the next five years, four more people disappeared without a trace. Rumors began to circulate that something supernatural was going on, and others began to fear that more people would vanish.

For 800 years, the identity of the Codex Gigas' author has remained a mystery. Many believe only the Devil could have crafted the impossibly large tome, while others think it was the work of a single hermetic monk. But the text itself tells a surprising story: perhaps the man behind the masterpiece was a passionate, unskilled amateur.

Three feet high and weighing in at 165 pounds, the Codex Gigas is the largest surviving illuminated manuscript from the medieval era.

Sometimes the "type" serial killers have is just people that are available, no matter gender, age, or race. I've seen it in a few SK stories.
