CSI was a fun show, but don't you ever wonder the things real CSIs must see on a daily basis?

Crime scenes are crazy places. The rules of society have been broken and the lengths that that person would have gone to to create that breach are probably insane.

And these people deal with it every day.

Redditors who clean up crime scenes - what's the most bizarre thing you've witnessed?

Here were some of those answers.

Warning: NSFW. Trigger warnings: violence, death, blood, guts, suicide.

The Writing On The Wall

Giphy

My best friend used to have this job. Most of the bizarre stuff was cleaning up suicides. Found a guys full in tact mustache across the room. One guy tried to kill himself by shooting his stomach with a small caliber pistol, he didn't die immediately so he wrote tons of whacked out stuff on the walls with his blood, then finished the job.

Yeah, HARD Nope

I don't clean them for a living but had to clean a few apartments when my uncle managed an apartment complex.

We had one tenant OD on heroin. He sat there for roughly three weeks before anyone noticed the smell. They took his body and left it to us to clean up.There were little dry droplets of vomit all over the ceiling right above where he died and to top it off he basically liquified and left on the concrete foundation underneath the carpet.

I thought that sh*t was left to a professional team, but I guess it's optional and if you don't want to pay for it.

It Keeps Getting Worse And Weirder


Came into a home to find a man who had attempted to commit suicide by putting a pistol under his jaw but failed/had a second thought. He ended up having to crawl 5ft away to where he had thrown the pistol after only blowing the left side of his face off to finish the job.

Another time we had a husband who had caught his wife cheating and had turned on the garbage disposal and forced her arm down it. Massive hemorrhaging, but unfortunately she was D.O.A. Husband ended up with a self inflicted shotgun wound.

PSA: People really don't understand just how messy a shotgun can make things. Think the hulk smashing a blood and brain filled pinata.

And this one was more weird than anything but here goes: Older gentleman we were called to after police performed a wellness check late 70's. Nice house, nice foreign car in the driveway. Pictures of prayers and crosses all over the house. We had into the bedroom and there he is naked except for what I assume was one of those sexy nun Halloween costumes? Honestly I don't know but he ended up having a heart attack mid pleasure time while choking himself with a rosary. Definitely one of the weirdest things I ever saw during my time working the box.

That's You All Over

Was dispatched to a vehicle vs pedestrian call a couple months ago, and when we arrived on scene it was like something out of a movie. Dude was running across a fairly busy four lane road and was hit by a car traveling about 55mph, after his head went through the windshield of the first vehicle he then proceeded to be thrown into the opposite lane and was ran over and drug about 20 yards by another vehicle. Once the coroner was on scene with traffic investigations we proceeded to pick up his organs bit by bit. It was a fantastic anatomy lesson.

A Scene From Final Destination

A friend of mine is a firefighter and he told me about a scene of a wreck he showed up too.

When he arrived there was a corvette smashed under a trailer of and 18-wheeler. When they finally pulled the two apart, the driver of the corvettes body was was intact in the front seat with cell phone in hand. Meanwhile his head was in the back seat.

Turns out he had been going at least 70mph while texting and didn't realize there was a red light and rammed into the back of an 18-wheeler.

Popping A Blood Vessel

An older gentleman ordered a lady of the night for a good time back at his hotel. Popped some Viagra and while they were doing the deed something in his penis ruptured. Blood on the bed, floor, almost every wall, little on the ceiling and a ton on the bathroom mirror. It looked like Dexter's playground. The guy survived. I guess the injury wasn't as bad as the scene would suggest but holy hell was that an intense job

You Didn't Exactly *Help*

So.... I work in healthcare. Crazy stuff comes in all the time. One time a woman came in who was shot in the vagina. She was dirty, in only a bra.

Turns out she was drinking with her bf and another guy. She and the bf got into a fight. Like.... Serious fight. The bf starts choking her out. So the friend runs upstairs, grabs a gun, and tries to shoot out the legs of the bf. Well, he missed and shot her instead.

Took a bit of explaining to clear that up.

He Couldn't Moo-ve In Time

My job is to clear landmines. I clean war crimes, you can say (yea, bit of a stretch, i know...).

Recently a cow had walked into a minefield in our area of operations, and stepped on a small anti-personnel mine. However, this mine was boosted by having been buried on top of a directional fragmentation mine (gamers and soldiers, think "claymore", but but bigger!).

The cow had literally been split in half, with cow intestines spread all over the area and hanging from trees like Hannibal's christmas ornaments.

Capitalism Is Wild

I had a resident in the apartment building I managed pass away. He drank himself to death. In his tiny 300sq ft studio, there wasn't a place on the floor where the beer cans didn't cover 2-3 deep. At 10 cents each in Oregon for recycling, I made $75.

Ex once told me of a scene she arrived at, wasnt a crime scene just a guy had died (heart attack i think) at the table whilst eating and been left to rot as nobody called on him. She said the body had bloated and leaked everywhere over the course of month or so but the most disturbing part was the eggo waffle on the plate in front of him was in perfect condition.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
