HEAVEN’S GATE MASS SUICIDE
Heaven’s gate was a religious UFO cult in San Diego, California. They believed planet Earth was supposed to be recycled (wiped clean, everyone dead) and the only way to survive was to leave immediately.
They believed that their bodies were vehicles only meant to help them on their journey. They performed mass suicide, but defined this suicide as going on to the “next level”.
They thought that there only means of escape would be to board their souls abroad a space craft that was trailing comet Hale-Bopp.
The cult rented a 9,200-sq.-ft. mansion.
Thirty-eight Heaven’s Gate members, plus group leader Applewhite, were found dead in the home on March 26, 1997. In the heat of the California spring, many of the bodies had begun to decompose by the time they were discovered. Autopsies were carried out on the corpses, and medical examiners found the people had taken cyanide and arsenic.
The members took phenobarbital mixed with pineapple, washed down with vodka. Additionally, they secured plastic bags around their heads after ingesting the mix to induce asphyxiation.
Authorities found the dead lying neatly in their own bunk beds, faces and torsos covered by a square, purple cloth. Each member carried a five-dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets, said to be for interplanetary toll.

Only one of the group’s members, Rio DiAngelo/ did not kill himself: weeks before the suicides, in December 1996, DiAngelo agreed to leave the group so he could ensure future dissemination of Heaven’s Gate videos and literature.

I would’ve included this in it, but this deserves it’s own separate post.
It was rated one of the most creepiest parts of the internet by cracked.com
At first glance at Edarem’s youtube page, you might find him a bit creepy, but perhaps just an old man trying to have some fun lip syncing to some songs?
But then you’ll see this
That’s right he’s a registered sex offender.
It just makes everything all the more unsettling and extremely disturbing.

The Hello Kitty Murder in Hong Kong refers to the case of a night club hostess, Fan Man-yee who was kidnapped and tortured in an apartment in 1999. She was decapitated and her head was put in a Hello Kitty doll, hence the name of the case
After a month of imprisonment and torture, she was killed, dismembered and her skull was stuffed into a giant Hello Kitty mermaid doll. They discarded most of the other body parts. Only the woman’s skull, one tooth and some internal organs were recovered
The killing was exposed after the 14-year-old girlfriend of one of the three perpetrators reported having continual dreams of being haunted by Fan’s ghost.
The court debated whether she died from drug overdose or torture, nevertheless the court sentenced the 3 men to life in prison.
I really don’t want to go into the brutal details, because I can’t stand gore but you can read about it here
