D.B. Cooper is the name given to an unidentified man who hijacked an airplane in 1971. He demanded $200,000 in ransom money, and then parachuted out of the plane. No one has any idea where he ended up or who he was, despite a large, ongoing investigation by law enforcement.

#11 Bimini Road

The Bimini Road is an underwater rock formation near the Bahamas. Despite the fact it is fairly large and long, no one has idea what it really is. Some believe it is a wall, some think it is a road or a man-made structure.  Of course, how did a man-made structure wind up underwater? What is its purpose?

#10 Wenseslao Moguel

Moguel was a Mexican man who was arrested in 1915 and suspected of taking part in the Mexican Revolution. He was sentenced to death and was shot 8 to 9 times in the body, followed by a final shot to the head. Somehow, Moguel survived the attack, and no one knows how.

#9 The Black Dahlia

004--9-the-black-dahlia-593952

This is without a doubt one of the most famous and oldest unsolved murders in the history of the United States. Elizabeth Short was murdered horrifically in 1947, with her body cut completely in two. This case has been highly publicized and numerous suspects have been linked to it, but nothing has been proven.

#8 Rongorongo

005--8-rongorongo-593963

Discovered in the 19th century, the Rongorongo is a series of glyphs that looks to be some form of writing. Despite being discovered very long ago, no one knows what it says. If this does prove to be writing, it may be one of the only independent inventions of writing in the history of the world.

#7 The Dyatlov Pass Incident

This incident refers to the tragic deaths of nine hikers in the Russian mountains. During the night, something made them flee their tents. While it is believed they may have died from hypothermia, a few of them had signs of physical trauma that can’t be explained, which has made this a very publicized mystery.

#6 The Somerton Man

007--6-the-somerton-man--594002

This is the story of an unidentified man who was discovered at 6:30 AM on a beach in Austrailia. He also had some materials on him that were fairly strange, such as the final page from a book. No one knew who he was, why he was there and why he died. Truly one of the biggest mysteries in the country of Australia.

#5 Nazca Lines

008--5-nazca-lines-2de93edbf39c7a60a63abbb05c65ac94

These lines are a series of ancient markings in Peru that are thousands of years old. These vary in complexity and many people wonder how they were created. The fact that these were made so long ago and were made with such precision, leave people to wonder if an ancient civilization were truly capable of this.

#4 The Star Ariel

009--4-the-star-ariel-470738ae63e5509e1e3c766992e3e3cd

This is the story of a passenger aircraft that was flying over the Atlantic Ocean in 1949. This plane was flying from Bermuda to Kingston and disappeared without a trace. This is a partial catalyst behind the legend of the Bermuda Triangle, in which a number of planes have disappeared over the years. The next mystery also has to do with the Bermuda Triangle.

#3 USS Cyclops

010--3-uss-cyclops-ac5c41bea622954c668cdce361c2d8e3

This was the name given to a ship in the US Navy. The Cyclops disappeared without a trace in 1918. Even worse than the shop going missing was the fact that over 300 people were on board and also disappeared. This remains the biggest loss of life in US Naval history, not as a result of combat.

#2 Voynich Manuscript

011--2-voynich-manuscript-70a35986d70a6456f97ee003a2c7eed0

This is an illustrated and handwritten codex that is written completely in an unknown writing system and was carbon-dated to the early 1400s. This has been studied by many different experts over the last hundred years and to this date, no one has ever been able to decipher what it means, or why it was created.

#1 Henry Lee Lucas

012--1-henry-lee-lucas-cc7deb67c4fa63327b173ee3665b8bc7

Lucas is a man who was convicted of murdering 11 people. However, it turns out that he fabricated the stories and his confessions were believed to be false, which baffled authorities. Why would this man lie about being a serial killer? The fact that he was associated with known killer Otis Toole also adds more mystery to this story.

There you have it, 12 amazing mysteries that have remained unsolved for years and have led to countless different theories as to what happened. These mysteries occurred at various different times throughout history but all share one thing in common. Despite the best efforts of scientists and investigators, these real-life mysteries have all remained unsolved for decades. While it is possible that someone will crack the secrets behind these infamous cases, the chances aren’t very high. As a result, we have to accept these for what they are and accept the fact that we may never what happened to these people.
