There’s nothing better than hearing someone tell a scary story that ends with the words, “best of all, all of this actually happened and here’s proof. BAM!” In fact, some of us are such thrill seekers that we wish some of the darkest and scariest stories out there had a ring of truth to them. Well, if you were looking for stories that will leave you scratching your head in disbelief, then you’re in luck, because all of these 10 freaky stories actually happened. Reality is definitely stranger than fiction, am I right?
A Baby-Craving Dingo
Reddit user Jake24601 discovered that the saying “Maybe the dingo ate your baby” had a lot of truth to it. In 1980, nine-week-old Azaria Chamberlain went missing from the Northern Territory of Australia. Her mom spent three years in prison before the baby’s clothing was discovered in the lair of a dingo. In 2012, the couple finally cleared their name as it was discovered that there were many unprecedented dingo attacks.
Snakes In Toilets
Ugh, if only this was just another urban legend! Sadly, it’s not. On January 2018, YouTube vlogger Ben Tedrick, posted a video of a snake slithering out of a vacant home in north Brazos County. While this may or may not happen in our own hometown, we’ll be turning on the bathroom lights at night from now on!
