One night in October of 2001, a young woman named Amy, and her friend whose name was Eric, were at a dance club in Portland, Maine. Amy was having fun, but Eric wasn't. He seemed bored and maybe a little annoyed. Amy tried to convince him to come out onto the dance floor to dance with her, but Eric wasn't interested. So, Amy wandered off to the dance floor alone. Eric watched her for a moment, then left for the bathroom. However, when he came back, Amy was gone. And 72 hours later, just about everyone in the state of Maine was asking the same question... where did Amy go?For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
Into the Woods

Into the Woods

In late July of 1988, two hunters were walking up this steep mountain trail in Colorado looking for a place to set up for the day. As they were walking, they eventually left the trail and began meandering through the trees looking for a clearing. At some point, they spotted one up ahead, but in this clearing was this really bright white thing at the base of one of the trees. So the two hunters walked up to see what this white thing was, and when they saw it, they both knew immediately that this was something no one was supposed to see…Story name, preview & link to original YouTube video:#1 -- "Into the Woods" -- Two hunters in Colorado stumble upon something no one was ever supposed to see (Original YouTube link -- https://youtu.be/JsDQD4AmwQY?feature=shared)For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
On May 13, 2015, a police officer in Michigan named Gary Wilson rushed to the scene of a double suicide. When he got there, he went inside the dark house and made his way to the bedroom where the two bodies were located. Wilson took a look at one of the bodies and then turned to check on the other, and when he did, he immediately noticed something. Something that was so surprising the officer nearly fainted from shock. However, this crazy discovery was only one small aspect of one of the most bizarre cases this officer would ever investigate.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
This story is a fan favorite that was previously published as Episode 48.In 2004, a woman living in Nashville, Tennessee, was sitting up in her bed one night trying to get some homework done for a Bible study class. As she sat there, she started to feel tired and so she decided to call it a night. She bookmarked the page she was on, and leaned over to put her Bible on the bed side table, when she suddenly froze. The house was supposed to be empty, her family was out for the night... but now, standing at the foot of her bed was a person, just staring up at her... and this person was dead.For 100s more stories like this one, check out my YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

The man’s cousin had been gunned down just two days earlier in a double homicide that shocked the little town of Mountain City, Tennessee. And now, on February 2, 2012, the detectives wanted his help. But the man just slouched in his chair, muttering one word answers and never even taking off his sunglasses. The detectives stared at the man for the longest time, waiting to see if he would tell them anything useful. Finally, the man started looking all around him like he was searching for a hidden camera and said something startling: “Is the CIA here?” The detectives had no idea why the American spy agency would be interested in a Tennessee murder case. But now they needed to find out.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

In the middle of the night on January 25, 2014, 80-year-old Peggy Nadell was sound asleep in her second-story bedroom. But then suddenly her phone began to ring. Peggy woke up startled and looked at the clock – it was after 1 a.m. – and to be getting a call at this house could only mean one thing… bad news. Nervously, Peggy answered the phone and quietly said "hello?" But that phone call would prove to be far worse than anything Peggy could have imagined, and moments after getting that phone call, Peggy would be fighting for her life.

One night in November 1999, a deputy was driving along a remote mountain road in Southern California when he spotted a car pulled off to the side of the road. The car’s engine was still on, and the passenger side door was open, but there didn't appear to be anyone inside the car. Now this was a very remote road, so the deputy assumed that the driver must be having some sort of car trouble, otherwise, why stop here? So the deputy pulled over his cruiser and began walking over to the car to see if they needed help. But before he reached the car, the deputy noticed something dangling out of the passenger side door. He reflexively put his hand on his holster and walked the last few feet up to the car. And when he finally could see into the car, he just froze. It looked like a set from a horror movie. Except this was not fake.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

10,000 feet up, deep inside of the beautiful Austrian Alps, lies a very unique and not well-known tourist destination. The only way you can get to this destination is to ride a gondola, or if you’re feeling really motivated, you could in theory hike up to it, but very few people do that. Once you reach this tourist destination, you walk over to this string of buildings, and right away you start to see all these warning signs about this area. Telling you that while, of course, it’s stunning and beautiful, remember, it’s also very dangerous. Today I’m going to tell you a horror story that happened at this unique location. And make sure you stick around until the end, because there are actually two plot twists in this story. The first one you might see coming... the second one, you won’t.Story name, preview & link to original YouTube video:#1 -- "Ice Man" -- Today's story involves a very unique location in the Austrian Alps, and make sure to stick around to the end for the 2 crazy plot twists. (Original YouTube link -- https://youtu.be/BqboEgA4EgA?feature=shared)For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
On March 25, 2009, Sergeant Jimmy Edmunds responded to a robbery call at a house in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Georgia. Edmunds thought he was going to investigate a routine break-in, but inside that house, he discovered the most violent crime scene he’d ever witnessed in his law enforcement career. For the next three days, Edmunds would barely sleep, but he would eventually uncover the truth about what happened in that house. And let's just say the truth was not what anyone expected.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

On a cold day in January 2008, a woman named Judy got out of her car and hustled across the parking lot toward a church. When she reached the side door, she fumbled around in her pocket for the keys. Once she found the right one, she slid it into the lock, but discovered the door was already unlocked. The woman was immediately annoyed, because these doors were meant to stay locked, so clearly someone had forgot to do that. She pushed the door open and right away noticed the church office door on the other side of the building was open a crack. So she walked right over to see who was in there and to remind them to lock the doors. But when she walked into that office, the locked door quickly became the last of her worries...For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

There are places on this planet that people are not supposed to go… however, some people ignore that and just go anyway, and oftentimes, it doesn't end well.

On April 26, 2002, a man was walking to his apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina when he noticed something moving around in the bushes. The man looked closer, and to his horror, he saw a "Peeping Tom." A person was literally standing there staring in the window of this young girl's bedroom. The man yelled aggressively at the person, which sent them running for their life. When word spread about this incident, residents of the apartment complex were hopeful that the Peeping Tom was so scared from getting caught, that they would never do it again. But unfortunately, the residents would be wrong, because that Peeping Tom was not just being creepy – no, they were also planning something... something evil.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
This story is a fan favorite that was previously published as Episode 53.In 1996, an 18 year old college freshman named Diane, began acting strangely. She would suddenly break down and start crying hysterically, and then a second later, she'd get extremely mad, and then a second after that, she'd be fine again, as if nothing had happened. For a while, her classmates thought her erratic behavior must be tied to her just really missing her boyfriend, who went to another school. But when Diane's classmates finally approached her and asked her what was going on, she gave them an answer that at first sounded so unbelievable, they assumed it was a joke. But Diane wasn't joking, and she had the scars to prove it. Horrified, Diane’s classmates left her bedroom and ran to tell school staff.For 100s more stories like this one, check out my YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @MrBallenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
In February of 2000, a police officer in a small Missouri town stepped into an apartment where a man had just taken his own life. The officer felt bad for the guy, but at the same time, when he walked in there, he fully expected this to be a pretty straightforward case… man commits suicide, the end. However, after walking over to the body, the officer spotted something odd laying on the ground near the dead man's head. It was a book, and it was open to a page with writing on it. The officer knelt down and read what was on the page, and it sent shivers down his spine. Clearly this writing was meant to be found. But before the police officer could flag this to anyone at the scene, another discovery was made. A video tape was found in the dead man’s trash can, and when the police watched it, lets just say they were not prepared for what they saw.For 100s more stories like these, check out our main YouTube channel just called "MrBallen" -- https://www.youtube.com/c/MrBallenIf you want to reach out to me, contact me on Instagram, Twitter or any other major social media platform, my username on all of them is @mrballenSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Men like Eric are told NO but hear YES and then get upset when women reject them repeatedly because they can't fathom being unwanted.

What kind of woman lets a young girl come to harm under her roof? All of these people are fucking idiots and I hope none of them reproduced because #1 they don't deserve to be parents and #2 the apple doesn't fall far from the tree sometimes so the world can always do with less psychopaths. ....
