People Explain Which Unsolved Cases And Mysteries They'd Like To See Solved

There's little more frustrating than a mystery that was never solved.

The victim's family never gets closure, a killer may still be at large, and our minds continue to spin trying to figure out how something happened.

Perhaps most frustrating of all is knowing that there is an explanation for it out there somewhere.

And, there are people desperate to find it.


Redditor BeautifulShape9441 was curious to hear which unsolved mysteries people would give anything to solve, leading them to ask:
"You get the opportunity to find out the truth behind one unsolved case, which are you choosing?"

It's tragic that these mysteries remain unsolved.

But if there is anything to be gained from this mystery, it's the fact that these poor people will never be forgotten.

As the saying goes, "you die twice, once when you take your last breath, and once when they stop saying your name."

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
