Tales From The Crypt


Sometimes things happen and they cannot be explained easily. When people are not able to find ‘normal’ explanations for such things, they call them mysteries. An unsolved mystery is something people have no answers for.

In trying to explain these mysteries, people sometimes say that they are caused by paranormal activity. Paranormal activities are things that cannot be explained by science or logic. Ghosts, curses, and other creepy things are paranormal. This is because nobody has been able to scientifically prove that they exist.

Here are three unsolved mysteries from around the world. Many people think that paranormal activity had something to do with these mysteries. Perhaps you can try and solve them yourself!

The Elisa Lam Mystery
Elisa Lam was a student from Canada who was found dead in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles in 2013. Her body was found almost a month after her death when guests complained about a strange smell in the water.

After her body was found, the police checked the hotel’s security camera videos. Elisa was seen going into an elevator and pressing some buttons but the doors did not close. She looked out of the elevator a few times, as if checking to see if someone was following her. As time went by she seemed to become more scared. Finally, the elevator door closed. That was the last time she was seen alive.
