10 Of The Strangest Pages You’ll Ever See On WikipediaLists, Other, Science, Shocking, Weird
Wikipedia is a weird place, which is not so surprising considering it can be edited by pretty much anyone. However, just like on YouTube or any other big site, there’s still some pretty dark corners that even you don’t want to lurk into. The internet is not afraid to show the rest of the world some of the darkest places of humanity, and these things are on the internet available for everyone to see. Wikipedia has done a great job at having those things all in one place — so here are some of the creepiest things you’ll ever find on the online encyclopedia.
Boy In The Box

D. B. Cooper

We would advise you not to visit this Wikipedia page if you plan on visiting any entertainment parks in the near future as it discusses at length all the lawsuits Disney faces for dozens of cases of gruesome deaths of kids whose bodies got stuck in the rides or got dragged by rides.
Iroquois Theater Fire
One of the most horrible fires in the history was one huge coincidence. The Irquois Theater Fire happened in 1903 where 600 people died.

Death of Elisa Lam
The dead body of a Elisa Lam, who was a student from Canada, was found in the water tank of the Cecil Hotel in L.A. in 2013. The only reason she was found is because so many guests had water supply problems.
The McMartin Preschool Trials
The McMartin Preschool Trials were probably one of the most horrible things to happen in California in the ’80s. The family ran a preschool where they sexually abused children. Alongside that they are also thought to have done several satanic torture treatments while children were there.
