The Lead Masks Case was the name given to the events which led to the death of two electronic technicians in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Their bodies were discovered on August 20, 1966.
A young man was flying a kite on the Morro do Vintém (Vintém Hill) when he came upon the two bodies. When police arrived, they noted the bodies’ odd conditions: The two males were lying next to each other, slightly covered by grass. Each wore a formal suit, a radiation-proof lead eye mask, and a waterproof coat. There were no signs of trauma and no evidence of a struggle. A small notebook contained the quote, “[translated] 16:30 (04:30 PM) be at the agreed place. 18:30 (06:30 PM) swallow capsules, after effect, protect metals, wait for mask signal”.

A case of death by mythology? Via the News & Star:
Mystery surrounds the death of a 37-year-old man who collapsed after opening ‘Pandora’s box’. Jason Airey was found slumped unconscious by his parents in the bedroom of their Carlisle home in May this year. A box bearing the words ‘Pandora’s box’ was beside him.
An inquest into his death heard how no drugs were found in his system and the box – which bore the inscription in red letters – contained unused synthetic cannabis.
Coroner Robert Chapman said a post mortem showed Jason’s heart had stopped beating, causing his organs to fail – but they would probably never know why. “We don’t really know what caused his heart to stop.”

An amazing image, which looks like a shrouded Jesus Christ shadowed by a prayerful Mother Mary, has been found on Google Earth.The startling image was snapped by Google as its imaging vehicle drove along the A5 highway near Walensee, Switzerland.
The dramatic, mountainous landscape is enhanced by a steel-grey, storm cloud laden sky. Looming from the cloudscape appear two images, one black, the other a mix of white and pink, which bear an uncanny similarity to figures depicted in religious paintings for centuries.
Either way, it’s one of the spookiest, or most awe-inspiring results ever found on Google Earth. Here are the coordinates: www.goo.gl/maps/WRNx4

The 11 unknown men, each dressed in black robes and sitting in a line, were spotted making strange synchronized gestures during the league match, which Bayern won 3-2.
Situated six rows from the pitch just beside the halfway line in the stand opposite the broadcasting gantry, the group was also seen by TV viewers all across the world.
One fan, Torsten Schmidt, said: “It was very weird. They sat very still for a long time but then would hold their hands up together, or stand up in unison and then sit down again. Everyone near me was very confused. Some people laughed, some looked astonished. It was just very weird.”
A key feature of their clothing was a circular symbol on the chest of their robes.
This is why you should never look in Grandpa’s shed. The Denver Post reports:
Lakewood police are investigating what they suspect are human and animal remains believed to have been used for occult worship.
Officers were called on Oct. 17 to the 1200 block of Kline Street where a cleaning crew hired made the discovery, said Steve Davis, Lakewood police spokesman. The bones were found in a shed, along with candles, bottles, chains and a crucifix.
The former owner of the home left the country in 1998 and has since died, police said. Investigators talked to people who knew the man, including at least one family member, who indicted he was an occultist, Davis said.
“It’s all very strange,” Davis said.
The items in question in the shed were extremely soiled, covered in multiple layers of dust and appeared to have been undisturbed for more than 15 years.

A clown – with red wig and full make-up and sometimes holding balloons – is freaking out residents of one English town.
He is red-haired and white faced and has surfaced several locations across Northampton, a town of 215,000, over the past few days since his first appearance on Friday the 13th.

A woman alleged that the clown had knocked on her door in full clown attire before then offering to paint her window sills.

Known only as ‘Le Leyon’, the mysterious stranger has puzzled locals and authorities in Switzerland for years. He always wears the same outfit and nobody has ever seen his face. The mystery surrounding his identity and purpose in the area has been the subject of much concern and intrigue.
“He had a military cape, boots and an army gas mask – an antique type, I think,” said an unnamed local photographer who managed to snap a photograph of the man.
Some area residents have also expressed fears over the man’s intentions. “He came out of the woods with his military clothes,” said one woman. “We saw neither his face nor his eyes behind his big dark gas mask.”
Authorities are currently attempting to track down and identify the man but have so far come up empty.

A recent discovery of part of a 4,000-year-old Egyptian sphinx has been a most unexpected find in Tel Hazor in northern Israel.
Inexplicably buried far from Egypt, the paws of a sphinx statue, resting on its base, have been unearthed with an inscription in hieroglyphs naming King Mycerinus. The pharaoh ruled in 2500 BC and oversaw the construction of one of the three Giza pyramids.
“This is the only sphinx of this king known in the world – even in Egypt. It is also the only monumental piece of Egyptian sculpture found anywhere in the Levant,” said professor Amnon Ben-Tor, the director of the excavation, referring to the region spanning the east of the Mediterranean Sea.
Tel Hazor was the capital of the city of Canaan 4,000 years ago. The question of how the sphinx got to Tel Hazor will likely remain a mystery.
