10 Horror houses that really existed – listverse static electricity in the body effects

In 2017, a couple bought a new house in Houston. The place had supposedly been empty for two years after the previous resident, Mary Cerruti, vanished and stopped paying the mortgage in 2015. She had rarely been seen outside the house since the development of a real estate project around her neighborhood.

Long story short: During the investigation, dead cats were found inside the house. But there was nothing more, so the case was closed and the house was put up for sale. The new owners began some work on the house and found Cerruti’s bones hidden inside the walls. Her skeleton showed signs of animal disturbance, too. The couple who had just bought the house didn’t sleep there.

In March 2018, authorities announced that Cerruti had most likely fallen through a broken attic floorboard and become trapped in the wall. At least one neighbor isn’t buying it. Roxanne Davis doesn’t believe that Cerruti’s body could have fallen through a crack that was only a little wider than a one-dollar bill. [6] 4 London’s Guru

A small—and cute—family house in Amstetten, Austria: That is where Josef Fritzl kept his daughter, Elisabeth, in chains and raped her starting in 1984. Elisabeth got pregnant seven times. One died shortly after birth and was cremated in the wood stove. Three were brought upstairs to live with Josef and his wife. .

When the eldest daughter, Kristen fell ill with renal issues, she was brought to hospital. The attending doctor felt something was up, spurring renewed interest in the initial disappearance. When Elisabeth showed up at the hospital, the police were informed and she was sequestered and questioned. In 2008, she bravely agreed to testify on tape for her father’s trial. In these recordings, she explains what her life had been like for those 24 years that she had been imprisoned. [8]

Josef had made her watch pornographic videos with him before forcing her to reenact them. The door to the cellar had been booby-trapped in such a way that Elisabeth would have died if she had tried to escape. The 11 hours of her testimony had to be broken up in short segments so as not to traumatize the jurors. 2 The Natascha Kampusch Case

In 1991, Philip and Nancy Garrido kidnapped Jaycee Dugard, an 11-year-old girl who was walking to the school bus stop. She was kept in a securely locked garden shed and raped by Philip regularly. Jaycee gave birth twice and thus had to share her small shed with her two daughters.

When Garrido was ordered to see his parole officer a couple days later, he brought his wife, Jaycee, and her two daughters with him. Jaycee was separated from Philip Garrido and eventually told the police everything that had happened to her for the previous 18 years. [10]

And it was more like hell than anything we could imagine: life in a garden shed with repeated psychological and physical abuse. Jaycee experienced the worst of human nature but managed to pull through it and was finally able to reunite with her family after being deprived of her teen and young adult years.

The Garridos were arrested that day at the parole office. In 2011, Philip Garrido was sentenced to 431 years to life in prison and Nancy Garrido was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison for the kidnapping and other crimes committed against Jaycee Dugard.
