List RulesVote up the weirdest crimes that literally had no motive.

Most crimes, no matter how crazy they are, tend to be pretty cut and dry. If a bunch of guys rob a bank it’s because they want money, or if someone murders a guy it’s probably because of revenge or some strange compulsion. But the bizarre crimes on this list happened without any rhyme or reason, which makes them even stranger than they already were. Whether the criminals collected here are sticking their brothers in a birdcage for two decades, or killing beauty queens, they never said why they committed the crimes, and it makes their story even weirder. But don’t worry, the crime stories on this list aren’t all super serious machete murders, some of them are your run of the mill trout thefts. Prepare to lose all your faith in humanity as you read about these super weird crimes committed for no reason.

A lot of the funny crimes detailed on this list are full of the kind of crazy go nuts logic that you tend to find in the deepest depths of a psychiatric asylum. A lot of the stories here are waist deep in the kind of criminals that seem to pull their transgressions out of a hat in the morning and hope for the best. If you’re looking for brilliant criminal masterminds, you’re not going to find them here, but you are going to find some of the weirdest crimes that were committed for no reason. Read up on these weird crimes that didn’t have a motive, and don’t forget that it’s a weird world out there.
