2/29/2024
Eunhee was an A list actress and had always had star treatment but this was a whole new level. She had a guarded mansion and millions of dollars at her disposal. Every evening, platters of shrimp, lobster, sushi, delicacies shipped in from all over the world filled an entire banquet table. It was all just for her. Every morning, a new gift was delivered for her downstairs, a fur coat, lacy lingerie, or beautiful gowns. She added them to the closet in ‘her’ bedroom already stuffed to the brim. Every single piece was perfectly tailored to fit her body; her exact measurements all the way down to her undergarments. She had guards watching her every move and tending to her every need. The one condition was that - she couldn’t leave… unless he called. A week into her stay - her assistant burst in through the door excited to get her ready. He had invited her to a party and she needed to look perfect. She got all dolled up and was led down to the front where she was face to face with the man who kidnapped her. The Supreme Leader of North Korea. Kim Jong Il.

#339: Nightclub Turns Into GAS CHAMBER Killing 242 University Students In One Night

2/25/2024
Gustavo stumbled out of the nightclub, barely keeping balance. He felt like he was hallucinating. He noticed people looking at him with very concerned looks – what? Did he have something on his face? He looked back up to a random man rushing towards him with a pail of water. He threw the water onto Gustavo’s arms. Everyone was acting so strange… Then a woman yelled at him, “HEY! You need to call an ambulance!—There’s something wrong with your body!” Gustavo was taken aback but reassured the woman, “NO! Don’t worry. It’s just my shirt—I tore it on the way out of the club; that’s all…” He was sure of it. He could feel his shirt in that moment, shredded and hanging off his body. Every time he took a step forward or turned around to look at another stranger yelling at him, he could feel it swaying, hitting other parts of his torso. The woman looked at him very concerned, “Sir. You’re not… wearing a shirt.” Gustavo walked towards a streetlamp and looked down at his arms. His flesh was eviscerated, hanging only by his wrist. His skin was melting off..

2/18/2024
“I can’t let you in…” The housekeeper was confused - what does the mom mean she can’t let me in? “Could you just toss the keys from your balcony?” The mother threw her keys from the balcony and vanished into the house. The housekeeper walked into the house and it was immediately chaos. The mother was hysterical - the father was banging his head on the wall. The mother threw her arms around the housekeeper. She cried and ushered her to a bedroom, “Come, come, inside and see what happened!” Lying in her bed was the family’s 13 year old daughter, dead. Her throat slit ear to ear. Her body looked posed and so were her stuffed animals, though they were eerily free of any blood or splatter. This case would become known as the JonBenét Ramsey case of India. Rumors of cheating, black mail, revenge, honor killings, truth serum, grooming and orgies consumed the media but the only thing we know for certain is - whoever her killer or killers are – they are free.

2/11/2024
The surveillance footage that captured the limp body of a young boy getting dragged into a closet was surprisingly clear. “You’re pathetic, but I already knew that.” The person talking came into view and positioned the boy in front of the camera. His body was completely nude except for a sagging diaper. To be alive - seemed agonizing. The little boy’s breathing sounded like a fish out of water - they bent over and pinched the little boy’s lips together. “See? You don’t need to breathe through your mouth like that - dummy.” Those would be the last words he ever hears. The boy would die in that closet. After enduring endless torture- starvation, ice baths, and being forced to drink hot sauce. But who was behind the camera watching?

He woke up from the smell. His head was pounding as his eyes adjusted to the harsh bathroom light. Did he drink too much the night before? What is that smell?

2/1/2024
Be like Barbie, Nina thought. She pushed her chest out and applied bubblegum lip gloss as she arrived at the seaside mansion for the first time. The last thing she wanted was to look like a child. But to Jeffrey Epstein, that was absolutely what he wanted. In fact, quite possibly the only thing he desired at all. What do rich men desire when they know they can buy almost everything in the world? They want what they can’t have. For Epstein that was young girls, illegally young girls, inexperienced young girls—his desires weren’t uncommon by any means either. Epstein was a multi millionaire rubbing shoulders with princes, socialites, tycoons, magnates, all over the world who had exactly the same desires. How far would the rich go to get something they couldn’t buy?

Most business deals are done at the dinner table. You quite literally wine and dine your potential investors. CEO Chen knew the song and dance better than anyone. He invested in companies with unique products to offer to the market. The businessman in front of him was doing everything to get CEO Chen to open his wallet. “Our product is really unique and hopefully this is comforting to know - I quality assure each and every single product sold.” CEO Chen smiled and the businessman knew it was time to go bigger. He eagerly stated - “We also give back to our local communities. We provide aid for elementary and middle schoolers. Here, take a look at what we’ve given to them.” CEO Chen leaned over to look at the businessman’s phone. The man smiled at his screen and kept swiping from the videos… Each video depicted a 12 year old being brutally assaulted in a dimly lit hotel room. The investment opportunity? A child sex trafficking ring disguised as a student aid foundation.

He walked closer, and he saw - melted, into the couch the body of a young woman. She was unclothed, maggots in her hair, rotting flesh eaten off her bones, and she was sitting there with her eyes and mouth open.

12/27/2023
A young woman was rushed into the emergency room carrying a tiny 7-pound baby- she had blood all over her face, body, and feet. She had just given birth in the car coming home from Walmart. A normal delivery is already dangerous but to give birth in a moving vehicle, while driving, could pose a lot of health risks. It was all hands on deck in the emergency room. If the mother’s uterus was bleeding heavily - that could mean life or death for the mother. The nurse put her fingers on her stomach (as a trained nurse she could tell by pressing on the outside of one’s stomach if blood was dangerously flowing from the uterus). But she felt nothing. No blood flow. No uterus. The nurse froze. She turned to her colleagues in pure horror and stated - that’s not her baby. Then whose baby could it be? And whose blood is this woman covered in?
