Pictured here, the Babushka Lady was seen photographing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. While visible in the famous Zapruder film, she’s never been positively identified and her film has never been recovered.

While a woman, Beverly Oliver, came forward in 1970 as the Babushka Lady to researcher Gary Shaw at a Joshua, Texas church revival, she never proved her claims.

2. The Man from Taured

It was July 1954 when a smartly dressed man arrives at Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan. Much like other passengers, he makes his way to customs. But whatever happened from this point onwards have left all puzzled and concerned. When questioned by the customs officers, the mysterious passenger said he was from Taured, also referred to as Taured Mystery.

The mystery man claimed that it was the third time he was visiting Japan from his country. But, to the surprise of officers, they couldn’t find any country named Taured. The primary language of the man, described as Caucasian looking with a beard, was French. However, she was purportedly speaking Japanese and many other languages as well.

Officers were perplexed because they had never heard about any such country. The passport of the man was issued by of course the Taured. The passport looked authentic but the place was not recognized.

Location of Taured

The man was then given a map and asked to point out his country. He immediately man pointed to the area occupied by the Principality of Andorra. Andorra is at the border of France and Spain. The man said that his country has been in existence for 1000 years and was a little puzzled why his country was called Andorra on the map. The man argued with the customs officers for long and refused to give in.

He was also carrying currencies of different countries, probably because he had made several business trips. The mystery man shared other details like the company for which he was working and the hotel where he stayed. Officials find out that the company which he mentioned existed in Tokyo but not in Taured. Similarly, the hotel he mentioned did exist but hotel employees informed them that no such booking was made. This prompted officers to take the man in custody for further interrogation. Officers were suspicious that he might be some criminal and confiscated his documents and personal belongings. The officers put the mystery man in a nearby hotel whilst they conducted their investigation.

Mystery Man Vanishes Amid Tight Security

To ensure that the mystery man didn’t escape, two guards were placed on the door. It must be mentioned that the hotel room in which he was staying only had one entry and exit point. But to everyone’s surprise, the man vanished the next morning. Not only that, but all his personal documents had also disappeared. A search was launched to find the man but in vain. The thing that was troubling investigating officers was that he was put up in a room high up in the multi-storey hotel building with no balcony.

Unexplained Phenomena

Some people argued that the mystery man was indeed from Taured but the country happens to be in another universe and somehow passed through a parallel dimension and ended up at Haneda Airport. Another theory is that the mystery man was a time traveller and had mistakenly landed at the airport. Above all this, there are people who claim that it’s just an elaborate internet hoax.

3. The Man in the Iron Mask

Nah, it’s not just a fictional movie with Leonardo DiCaprio. “The Man in the Iron Mask” was apparently a real dude, although it’s hard to say what facts are absolutely verified from the little we know about this uber-mysterious prisoner.

Arriving to the Bastille “super prison” in 1698 under the pseudonym of “Eustache Dauger,” he did indeed wear a mask of some type—perhaps iron, perhaps not—and it’s been speculated he was a high-level political prisoner. Also listed as "Prisoner 64389000,” he was forbidden to show his face and spent between 20 to 30 years imprisoned already.

In 1703, he passed away in the Bastille, and his identity remains a mystery to this day.

The date was November 24, 1971, and a man under the assumed identity of Dan Cooper hijacked a Boeing 727 in the airspace over Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, successfully extorting $200,000 as ransom (over $1.1 mil in today’s moolah). Dramatically, Cooper then parachuted from the plane at midnight to make his escape.



Due to a miscommunication, the media dubbed him “D.B. Cooper,” and the legend was born.

The name Jack the Ripper came from a letter sent in 1888 to London police, purporting to be the killer of five prostitutes.

His true identity has never been proved. Stories about the serial killings on the streets of Victorian London captured readers around the world, spurring intense speculation that lasted well beyond a century.

Crime writer Patricia Cornwell contributed to the theories with her 2002 book "Portrait of a KIller -- Jack the Ripper: Case Closed." Cornwell fingers painter Walter Sickert, in part based on the similar watermarks on the letter to police and Sickert's personal writing paper. She also argued that many of his paintings depicted Jack the Ripper crime scenes.
