The History's Biggest Unsolved Mysteries is here

[ updated 21 Mar 2014, 22:45:36]Courtesy: yahoo

If you think Flight MH370 is only the unsolved mystery ever, then you got it wrong.

here are the Histories Biggest Unsolved mysteries .

1. In December of 1945, a group of U.S. Navy Avengers similar to the one’s in the picture here, disappeared off the coast of Florida with 14 men on board. A group of 13 men went to find the missing 14 but ended up going missing themselves and thus the legend of the Bermuda Triangle was born. There have been other disappearances over the years since then that have been linked to Bermuda Triangle but the US Navy says the Triangle doesn’t exist.

 

 

2. Actress Natalie Wood’s body was found floating off California’s Catalina Island in November 1981. Initially her death was ruled as accidental but during an interview in 2011, the captain of the boat in which Wood had apparently fallen off of, Dennis Davern, stated that Wood and her husband Robert Wagner had a fight earlier and alleged that Wagner was to blame for her death. The Los Angeles County coroner has since changed the death certificate from “accidental drowning” to “drowning and other undetermined factors.”

 

 

3. There have been numerous sightings of ‘Nessie’ the monster that people believe inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. Belief that the Loch Ness Monster actually existed started in 1933 and although it’s existence has never actually been proven, scientists have yet to prove that it does not.

 

 

4. As leader of the powerful Teamsters Union, Hoffa was rumoured to have connections with organized crime and served four years in prison for various offences. He disappeared in 1975 after going for a meeting with Teamster bosses and reputed Mafia figures Tony Provenzano and Anthony Giacalone in a Michigan restaurant. Over the years there have been many FBI searches triggered by stories from people who say they know where Hoffa is buried, but they have turned up nothing.

 

 

5. A preserved skull and hand said to be that of a yeti or abominable snowman are seen at the Pangboche monastery, near Mount Everest. Whether you know it by the name of ‘Yeti’, ‘Abominable Snowman’, ‘Sasquatch’, ‘Big Foot’ or as Russians refer to it ‘Almasty’ the legend of a big hairy beast with a likeness to that of a human that lives in the forests and mountains has been told for centuries.

 

 

6. During an attempt to fly around the world, pilots Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan and their Lockheed Electra plane went missing in the Pacific and the pair were eventually presumed dead and along with their aircraft, have never been found.

 

 

7. The Sphinx is carved almost entirely from one huge piece of limestone and is about 50 meters long and 22 high. There has been huge controversy over when the Sphinx was built, who built it, how they built it and even why it was built.

 

 

8. Rongorongo is a series of glyphs that were discovered on wooden objects found on Easter Island. Many people have tried to decipher them but to this day, none have been successful.

 

 

9. Nobody really knows why Stonehenge was built let alone how it was built. The biggest of its stones, known as sarsens, are up to 30 feet (9 meters) tall and weigh 25 tons. The monument is believed to be around 5,000 years old, which makes it difficult to determine how the people of that time could have moved such enormous stones and place them in such a way.

 

 

10. US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963. President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the Warren Commission on to investigate the assassination and it concluded that Oswald was the lone gunman.The Associated Press-GfK conducted a survey in 2013 that shows 59 percent of Americans think there were multiple people involved in a conspiracy to kill JFK.

 

 

11. The Mary Celeste set sail from New York in November 1872 with a crew of ten but she was found drifting a month later, with no trace of anyone on board, no signs of a struggle and all of the cargo was still on board. The lifeboat was missing but the weather wasn’t a factor. The mystery of their disappearance has never been solved.

 

 

12. illustration shows the police discovering the body of one of Jack the Ripper’s victims, probably Catherine Eddowes, London, England, late September 1888. Jack the Ripper is the name given to a serial killer that targeted areas near the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. Also known as “the Whitechapel Murderer” and the “Leather Apron” the killer has never been identified.

 

 

13. The Shroud of Turin is a piece of linen cloth that bears what seems to be the likeness of a man. Many people believe this to be the shroud that Jesus of Nazareth was buried in. Scientists performed tests on small pieces of the shroud and concluded that it dates back to only the Middle Ages but these tests aren’t accepted by everyone in the scientific community and so the shroud and the identity of the man remain a mystery.
