#49 The Mysterious Death of Kendrick Johnson

January 10, 2013, Kendrick Johnson gets up, gets dressed and arrives at school as usual, he's a student at Lowndes High School in Valdosta Georgia. Kendrick’s morning goes smoothly and without instance, but then when it is time for Kendrick to be in his third block class, a weightlifting class, he is a no show, Kendrick is marked absent. That night around 10pm Kendrick's mom started to get worried, her son should have been home by now, and he had not texted to say he was going to be late, something very unusual for him. That night Jackie and Kenneth Johnson hopped in their car and drove back and forth from the school to their home, taking every route they could think of, looking for any sign of their son, making calls and asking friends, but no one knew where he was...and where they found him, would shock and confuse everyone.

#45 The 27 Club

What would you do to be remembered forever? Pull crazy stunts? Perform every chance you got? Chase every high? Sell your soul to the devil himself? Or just die young? All of the members of the 27 club have left their mark on the industry, but at what cost? Why did so many talented people succumb to death at such a young age? The 27 club refers to a list of artists and performers who all met their end at the age of 27, some theorize it's more than just a coincidence, some claim they are not dead at all. And some know the path they were on, always meets a short sudden end.

#41 The ZoOoONnEe of Silence

Just 25 miles outside of Ceballos Mexico, lies an area of 1500 square miles of inhospitable desert, it boasts temperatures that reach 120*f during the day and drop to freezing at night.  The area is surrounded to the east by a large mountain range, its known for the unusual amount of meteor activity, and odd floating orbs of light.  It also shares the 27th parallel with its equally eerie comrades the Bermuda Triangle and the great Egyptian Pyramids.  Naturally its a hotbed of supernatural occurrences and unexplained phenomena, hence why I chose this topic...duh. :)
