I'm familiar with most of the segments already mentioned, and they affected me, too.

Another one that frightened me was about an elderly couple that parked their Winnebago at a rest stop. In the middle of the night, a man came in with a shotgun and killed the woman almost immediately. Fortunately, her husband was able to jump out and roll under the vehicle. The killer then stepped outside and shot another motorist at point blank range. The story itself is scary, and the actor who played the killer was very effective at striking fear in my heart! I've seen the segment recently, but I've never seen an update.

Here's another: there's a house in my town for which I have a strange affection, and I'm a huge Perry Mason fan, so imagine my delight -- and my goosebumps -- when I saw this house on UM, and learned it had a Perry Mason connection. It's now called Black Swan Inn, but it was the former home of Park & Jolene Street. Park Street was an attorney in the 30's and, at one point, had a promising career in politics. Erle Stanley Gardner visited the Streets at their home, and even wrote there; it's believed by some (myself included) that ESG's character was based largely on Park Street. Jolene died in her early 30's of cancer. Park hung himself or was murdered; a possible motive for his murder could have been a treasure that was rumored to be hidden somewhere in the house. The house seems to change hands on a regular basis, but it has usually been (somewhat) open to the public as a B&B or event hall. Past owners tell stories of Jolene and Park appearing in the house and on the grounds.

I remember that case very well. You're not the only one who has never seen an update on the case. And that's because, regrettably, there hasn't been one.

You're probably thinking of Trisha Ann Autry. The story was featured on Unsolved Mysteries this past summer (one of the show's first new stories to be exclusively featured on Lifetime).

Trisha Ann Autry disappeared from her home in Utah in June of 2000, and there was speculation that she may have been abducted from someone she met on-line. The case was solved before the segment aired. Tragically, she was murdered, and her remains were found. A suspect was arrested soon afterwards.

Hmmm..my UM scary moments over the years:

1) Anything related to aliens. The special report on Roswell was the season debut of 1989 (I think?? I could be wrong). I was FREAKED when I watched it, to the point I was hiding under a blanket when they showed the crashsite with the "alien bodies".

2) Remember the case of Little Miss Panasoffkee (sorry about the spelling, I am sure it's wrong)? It was another early case about the badly decomposed body of a young woman that was found in a swamp in the southern US. They never did identify her, but a police sketch artist actually used pictures of this dead girl's skull to recreate her face (a sketch of what it might have looked like, at ages 6, 12, and adult). That case, for some reason, scared the HECK out of me. BTW this case itself, I think, is around 30 years old now. It was an old one.

3) I got goosebumps like crazy in the early 90s (93 maybe) during a case about two young girls that were kidnapped and smothered to death. One girl's body was left at a truck stop. It was very creepy.

Default scariest

There have been a TON of scary cases shown. Probably the scariest one in my book would have to be the 1982 Breckinridge Colorado murder women. Remember that one? That's the case where two women dissapeared on the same night, shot by the same kind of gun... and the connection were the 2 orange socks? Since so many people hitch hiked at the time, both ladies (at different times) hitch hiked home with some man in a big van, he drove her out of town down a dead end road in the woods, she tried to escape and he shot her. Then he picked up the other woman, drove her out to the woods, she tried to escape too, but he shot her. When their bodies were found, each woman had one of the orange socks on or near their dead body. VERY SCARY stuff. I don't think any case has scared me as much as that one.

Default Oh,I forgot one

Another UM case that scared me was the Cindy James Case. That was the one about the woman who lived in Vancouver, Canada and she was terrorized for several years with harrasing phone calls, notes left on her front porch like "I see you" "Soon Cindy" and several times was attacked herself. Every time she was attacked, a nylon stocking was tied tightly around her neck. Her basement was lit on fire one night, her phone lines were usually cut, several times her porch lights were smashed and at night she heard prowlers outside in her yard. The police watched her for years and she got a PI, but still continued to get harrassed and a suspect was never caught.

In June of 1989, 2 weeks after she dissapeared, her dead body was found in the back yard of an abandoned house. Her hands and feet were bounded together behind her back, once again the nylon stocking was tied tightly around her neck, and she had been injected with many morphine drugs.

Many of the police officers thought her death was a suicide. But how on earth can a woman inject herself with that amount of drugs, and actually bound her feet and hands together behind her back? Impossible. The last several years of this womans life was nothing but a horrid nightmare. Definately scary movie material. This case intrigued me so much that I actually bought a book about it. And it gives so many other details that the UM segment left out.

I'd say that either the cops are lying to cover something up or they're just brainless enough to think it was a suicide (despite evidence to the contrary).

Default Pedro Mountain Mummy

The segment that's disturbed me the greatest was about this 17 inch "adult" that was discovered mummified, sitting in Budda pose inside a sealed cave in Wyoming. Prospecters came upon it while blasting for gold back in the 1930s. It was toured about as a carnival side-show until the '60s when a doctor decided to medically examine the body to properly diagnose this strange figure. The original assumption was that it was the remains of deformed infant, but x-rays revealed it was infact an adult, with a full set of teeth and fully developed bones. Yet it did not appear to be a 'dwarf' by the modern medical sense.

Contributing to the paradox was a tradition amongst the local tribes that there once were a 'little people' in the area, of incredibly small stature but bearing extraordinary strength. Of course, no medical professional was going to dare put his credibility on the line by suggesting the mummy was actual physical proof of an "indian myth". Thus the finding was greatly downplayed, suggesting it was an extreme case of mutation (which still didn't explain how it got in a sealed cave) and not too surprisingly the specimen became lost eventually.

Talk about freaky though, traditions of 'little people' exist in various parts of North America and occasionally modern sightings occur. Did we once have complete proof of their existence?! It's quite possible that a pygmy race did once inhabit the continent and maybe still does. There's also an update on this case, kinda... Doing a web-search I've read that a university is positive on the mutation theory because they've found ANOTHER body! Unfortunately they didn't offer any details.

Now if I can just find someone whose seen that 'mummified dinosaur' episode....that's rather disturbing aswell.

I remember that one! I think his name was Pedro or Pietro? I found a story about him in one of my books on the unexplained.

Post This is cool!

Wow, and I thought I was the only one who hid under the covers during the UM theme song.

Anyway the scariest bit occured during that story that someone mentioned about the guy who broke into the older couple's winnebago at a Canda rest stop and proceeded to murder the wife and try the same on the husband.

It wasn't just the story, but the CRIMINAL SKETCH! Creeeeepppy! Not just a sketch but a kind a 3-d looking model of one sinister looking guy - nightmare inducing stuff.

Also, a poster named dynoguy88 said they bought a book about the Cindy James case. Where did you find it? Online?

Yes, I found it online. Sometimes I look online for any articles about any cases I find interesting from Unsolved Mysteries...yes, I am a fanatic.... and at this time, I just typed key words about the Cindy James case and found a couple links that stated there was some books written about it.

I ordered a book, "Deaths of Cindy James" which was written by Neal Hall (an "interviewie" from the Unsolved Mysteries segment) and it was VERY interesting. It gave ALOT more details that UM left out, and other attacks that were not mentioned. The book was only a couple dollars as well.

I think I ordered it from http://crimemagazine.com/CrimeBooks/crimebooks.htm but there were other links I found as well. It all depends on which key words you use in your search.

Default My three scariest

My three scariest from a longtime fan:

1) The Signal Mountain Murders - 3 ATV riders brutally shotgunned in rural TN. The killer, Frank Casteel, is fortunately locked up.

2) The murder of the elderly woman in the Winnebago, pulled over in the middle of the night in Canada. Still unsolved.

3) The mother and her 2 daughters who were raped and drowned in Tampa Bay by Ober Chandler, now on death row.

The freakiest episode that I saw was te one when a little girl said that she knew a man that always played with her and her mother did not believe her and the girl was able to pick out who he was in some pictures and it was a man that died a long time ago. Did anyone see that episode?

OMGoodness That case scared me too. ( Little Miss Panasoffkee) I have to admit this but, there were times I couldn't sleep seeing Unsolved Mysteries......

Another case that scared me was where this lady was living by herself after her husband died and she would be in her house and his ghost would appear. At one point she left a room in ther house and would go to another room and she would find herself with her husbands coffin, and he would be inside it. That scared me BIG TIME .

Another one was where these cars would be driving next to a cemetary and the people would see the ghost of a young lady walking the street. She would appear and the drivers would see her and she would run in front of their car and the driver would hit the ghost. It happened to a couple of people. The girl looked like Carrie (From the movie) Freaky!!!
