HBO documentary exposes homicidal child

"There's an HBO documentary called 'Child of Rage', about a six year old with reactive attachment disorder who repeatedly tortured animals, sexually molested her brother, and attempted to kill her adoptive parents by coming into their bedroom at night with a knife.

The doc shows her calmly telling her therapist about the incidents very soon after they happened - really creepy and sad."

Woman disappears during cruise, is believed to have been sold into sex slavery

"The Amy Bradley disappearance. She disappeared from a cruise ship en route to Curacao in 1998, and years later photos were emailed to her parents that very much resembled her, and looked like she had been sold into sexual slavery. Multiple people have also claimed to see her through the years; the Wikipedia page on her case lists the sightings, and there's an FBI missing persons report, including sketches of people she was seen with in 2005. The whole story is just chilling and terrifying."

Family of Albinos in Tanzania were dismembered so their limbs could be used for traditional withcraft

"I saw something on National Geographic a while ago about the murders of albinos in Tanzania. There was one case of a family with two albino sisters, one of which had her arms and legs hacked off in the middle of the night for sale on the black market. The other albino laid next to her sister for the remainder of the night as she bled to death (they live in a very secluded hut with no electricity).

Albino limbs are reportedly worth a lot in certain parts of Africa for use in traditional witchcraft."
