another creepy segment was one about a man who went into the forest near his house, with his dog, and shot himself AND his pet. Later another guy moves into the deseased fellows house. then, he walks into the forest and is never seen again. just to deepen the mystery the second man had been writing a book. while investigators were looking through his drafts they found that last sentence he'd written was about a guy walking into a forest....

Question Matthew Chase?

I'm fascinated by this Matthew Chase story, but who is he and what was the significance of his UM story; what was it about?

That case took place in the summer of 1988 I believe. Matthew Chase was a young man in his early twenties who had recently moved to LA with two friends. One night he went to withdraw some cash from an ATM machine and never returned home. A surveillance camera revealed pictures of him at the ATM machine along with another man. Authorities believe that this other man abducted Matthew and forced him to withdraw money from other ATMs in the area. There was an update not long after the story originally aired stating that Matthew Chases body had been found and that he had been shot to death. The identity of the other guy who was pictured with him at the ATM is still not known. It was hard to tell what he looked like by the survellance pic so an artist drew a composite sketch of what they think he might look like. The composite was pretty scary looking.

Hehe! That seems to be a regular thing on UM! Those artists have such a way of making those guys looks creepy. But maybe they do that on purpose.

I agree with Allierain, sometimes even the victims sketches or age progression photos are scary too (Mary Ann Perez (sp?) for example).

Thumbs up THE scariest , definitely!

The Teresita Basa episode -- which told of the murder of a young woman, a Filipino hospital technician in Chicago, by a co-worker in the mid-to-late 1970's. She supposedly returned from the grave to identify her killer through a couple of trances an acquaintance of hers unwittingly experienced shortly after the murder. The acquaintance didn't remember the trances she herself had experienced but had spoken to her own husband during each one, relaying important information to him which correctly identified her killer and the whereabouts of evidence, which eventually incriminated the killer and led to his confession.

The Patience Worth episode was pretty creepy, too. A 17th century spirit which communicated with a St . Louis woman in the early 20th century for about 25 years, relaying hundreds of poems, novels, and other works which were said to be accurate in all details.

EDIT: The arsonist "beautifulllll....." episode...

And by far the most disturbing unsolved mystery I've ever known of, which until recently I'd been unaware they'd put on UM, the Zodiac Killer.

the updates are really freaky especially the music. the scariest are when they find the location of the bodies.....such as the Susan Hurley Harrison case and another UM case about a murder in the seattle area..i dont remember exact details but it was an older couple and the man had killed his wife and buried her with some compost in his yard....he was wanted for the murder but the update said his body had been located.....really freaky stuff

To tell the truth, I think the entire show is scary. I started watching unsolved mysteries when it first came on tv. I was hooked on it. Then I moved to an apartment alone, and couldnt watch it for a long time, Id just get freaked out by the music... At 8:00 Id skip over LIFETIME network just so I didnt have to see Robert Stack (who I think is wonderful but scary) OR hear that terrible, scary music.
There are to many scary stories to name. JUST FREAKY!!

Hey. Glad to finally find a fan board of one of my favourite shows of all time, the show that terrified and trilled me as a kid and still does to an extent. Now, onto the scariest cases:

-As noted several times, the highway rest-stop killer. My username is inspired by my absolute TERROR of the black and white composite sketches. When I was young, I could not sleep because of them! But I recall the one of this murderer because, as stated before, his sketch was in 3-D made by computer which was cutting-edge at the time. The murder was also so senseless and made me sad because the husband was so devastated, and it's remained unsolved. I also remember it because it happened in Canada and I'm Canadian, although it was in Ontario and I'm in BC. I don't think I can pass by an old guy with long white-silver hair without glancing twice again.

-With the recent arrest of Derrick Lee for several New Orleans murders and his suspicions of other murders, I was reminded of another serial murderer profiled on Unsolved Mysteries back in 1992 or 1993. I'm positive it was based in Lousiana because I recall Mardi Gras in the introduction. All the victims were black women, and only one survived. I recall that most, if not all, died of strangulation, and one (the fourth one) remained unidentified. But at the end of the case I recall doing something I have never done before or since - I covered my face so I couldn't see the sketch. And I remember my mom exclaiming "HE LOOKS LIKE THE DEVIL!" so I was glad I did back then, but I sometimes wish I could see the case again. Can anyone give me some conformation? Was it the "the search for a New Orleans serial killer who preys on prostitutes" that aired on October 21, 1992? (source - website episode guide)

-There are also the odd episode with a scary sketch ending them. One was from a Lifetime rerun I saw in 1997 of a guy (I think from upstate NY?) who would rob retail stores and rape an employee each time. That was an ep that I desperately wanted to end with an update but it never happened. Another was when a little girl who was kidnapped and murdered in the early 80s (can't recall which state it was but I want to say New Mexico or Utah), and her killer scrawled a message for the police in a bathroom stall. Does anyone recall those two cases or when they aired? Finally, the New York rapist case that aired on July 1996. I distinctly remember having a nightmare about the sketch (in fact, that case had three sketches shown).

-And last, but not least, something me and my brother still talk about - THE HAUNTED HOUSE! This aired when we were quite young, so it was probably before 1990. It might be the 'crib haunting' one mentioned by unsolvedfan19 on the first page - because I too remember the father seeing the house burning down. I also recall the radio dial moving by itself, the kids getting sick and seeing witches in their room at night. I don't recall a crib, rather a bunk bed, mentioned by boechsner on the second page. I remember the house ended up being torn down but that may be my fuzzy memory. What was the airdate for that ep?

I have the episode with the New Orleans serial killer on tape. I agree, the composite sketch was absolutely scary...as was the sketch of the unidentified victim. When I get my working digital camera, I'll take a picture of the killer...hehehe.

The bunk bed haunting is a popular segment, but I don't think the house iteself was torn down. They just got rid of the bunk beds and had them destroyed at a landfill. After that, the family reported no further incidents.

Hahaha, do that. I want to see what I missed. And there will be no creepy music accompanying it.

I always thought the house was torn down because I remembered some sort of rubble at the end of the case, but I guess it was the family throwing the bunk beds in the dump. I was only 7 when I saw the case, and I haven't seen it since. I'm pleasantly surprised to see how well-known the case is. It ended up helping to clear up the holes in my memory.

Those and now the Matthew Chase case which I have never seen are three shows that I now itch to see.
