Even the most normal people have secrets behind closed doors. But when those seemingly normal people have something terrifying inside their home - tucked away from prying public eyes - it's downright terrifying. After police uncover dead bodies in someone's basement or live human captives chained to beds, everyone's so shocked - and not just at the acts but of the identity of the perpetrator. It's rarely who you suspect. It's usually the guy on the block with the perfect lawn who gives the best Halloween candy that has a secret obsession for all things Satanic and the occasional man-meat sandwiches. Some strange, most disgusting, all of them creepy; this list explores a few of those cases where the secrets creepy people kept locked inside their homes were exposed and continue to stun the masses.

Ariel Castro Held Three Women Captive for Ten Years

Ariel Castro wasn't necessarily considered normal - his wife and child left him because he had been abusive - but nothing about him alarmed anyone who knew him. No one took much notice of him in the neighborhood, so no one knew his wife leaving him didn't end his reign of terror on women. Castro kidnapped three women who accepted rides from him. He abducted Michelle Knight on August 23, 2002, when she was 21, Amanda Marie Berry on April 21, 2003, the day before she turned 17, and Georgina "Gina" Lynn DeJesus  on April 2, 2004 when she was only 14.
All three victims were locked in Castro's dark basement or tied to his bed. They suffered brutal beatings, emotional abuse, and were raped repeatedly during the 10 years they were held captive. They were only fed once a day, allowed to shower once or twice a week, and given a tiny, dirty toilet. Castro impregnated Michelle Knight at least five times and would cause her to miscarry by starving her and beating her with dumbbells.
Amanda Berry gave birth to a daughter while in captivity, and DNA evidence confirmed Castro was the father. It was Berry who saw the opportunity to escape on May 6, 2013. Castro left an interior door leading to the upper floor unlocked by accident, allowing Berry to go into the living room and yell for help out the window. By getting the attention of neighbors, Berry got out of the house and called Cleveland PD to Castro's house to free the other two women. Castro pled guilty and was given a life sentence but committed suicide after just a month in jail.

Ed Gein, also known as The Butcher of Plainfield, was the notorious grave robber and killer who inspired some of the creepiest characters of cinema - Leatherface of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Norman Bates of Psycho. Gein was thought to be shy, socially awkward, and a bit strange, but no one could have guessed what horrors were hoarded away in his home. Following his mother's death, Gein dug up graves and mutilated the bodies to craft random household items for years.
It wasn't until November 16, 1957, when a local hardware store owner named Bernice Worden disappeared that Gein was brought to the attention of police. Gein had been the last person to see Worden and that prompted a search of Gein's property. Not only did they find Worden's decapitated and mutilated body hanging upside down in Gein's shed, but they also found the body parts of women he'd dug up on at least 30 different visits to the cemetery. Gein also confessed to the murder of Mary Hogan, a local tavern owner.
Gein had nine vulvae in a shoebox, four noses, human heads, lips, fingernails, a corset made from a torso, and a human heart by his stove. He'd made bowls and bedposts from human skulls. He used women's skin to make a chair, lampshades, masks, and a wastebasket. Police also found Mary Hogan's face in a paper bag–Gein had literally carved it off. Gein was found guilty of first-degree murder but also legally insane so he was locked up in a mental hospital for the rest of his life. He died on July 26, 1984.

Thomas Mair Had A Secret Obsession With The Third Reich


Thomas Mair Had A Secret Obses... is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list 10 Seemingly Normal People Who Hid Chilling Secrets In Their Homes

Thomas Mair did volunteer work, taught disabled children, and wore the face of a kindly neighbor willing to help everyone with their gardening, all while devouring as much creepy Nazi propaganda he could get his hands on in his West Yorkshire home.
Apparently, no one, not even his family knew of his obsession with the Third Reich or of his ties to online networks of white supremacists. It wasn't until Mair brutally murdered Jo Cox, a Labour Member of Parliament on June 16, 2016 (one week prior to the EU referendum outlining Brexit) that his secret life was revealed. Witnesses heard Mair screaming, "Britain first. This is for Britain. Britain will always come first," as he shot Cox three times, and then stabbed her 15 times with a dagger.
Police uncovered hoards of books and pamphlets on the Holocaust and SS Race Theory in addition to his own writings, including letters that were previously published in SA Patriot-in-Exile. Mair wrote that he felt "white liberals and traitors" were the "greatest enemy" of apartheid. His writings also stated, "I still have faith that the White Race will prevail, both in Britain and in South Africa, but I fear that it's going to be a very long and very bloody struggle." Mair was found guilty of murder November 23, 2016 and sentenced to life in prison.

Josef Fritzl Kept His Daughter And Her Children Captive For 24 Years


Josef Fritzl is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list 10 Seemingly Normal People Who Hid Chilling Secrets In Their Homes

Josef Fritzl of Amstetten, Austria, had a soundproof dungeon constructed under the home he shared with his wife and daughter Elisabeth. Apparently Fritzl had been sexually abusing his daughter since she was 11-years old and when she turned 18 he locked her up in his cellar and reported her missing. For 24 years Fritzl kept his daughter hidden, repeatedly raping her while his wife went about her day without a clue that her daughter was being brutalized beneath her feet.
Elisabeth gave birth to seven of her father's children, one was sick as a newborn so Fritzl burned him in the furnace. Three of the six surviving children were kept captive down in the basement with Elisabeth, never knowing the outside world existed. The other three children were brought upstairs, Fritzl claimed Elisabeth abandoned her children on the doorstep and ran off with some cult. It wasn't until one of the children, Kerstin, got sick and needed to be hospitalized that Fritzl's secrets came out. In 2008 Elisabeth (42 years old at this point) and her hidden children (Kerstin, 19; Stefan, 18; and Felix, 5) were finally freed. Josef Fritzl plead guilty to kidnapping, rape, incest, false imprisonment, slavery, and murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.

#1 British Waters Compact Category: "Peek-A-Boo!" By Martin Edser, Uk

British Waters Compact Category: "Peek-A-Boo!" By Martin Edser, Uk
It's always fun to dive with and photograph seals but this encounter was extra special. I had not seen any on this dive probably because it was late afternoon and they were enjoying a sensible nap on shore. I was beginning to lose hope when out of nowhere a head popped up out of the kelp and gave me an inquisitive stare. It disappeared again as quickly as it appeared... Read More

#2 Portrait Category Winner: "A Sand Tiger Shark Surrounded By Tiny Bait Fish" By Tanya Houppermans, USA

Portrait Category Winner: "A Sand Tiger Shark Surrounded By Tiny Bait Fish" By Tanya Houppermans, USA
I always look forward to diving the wreck of the Caribsea and seeing the fierce-looking, but docile, sand tiger sharks that frequent the wreck. On this day as I descended to the wreck, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Millions of tiny fish, collectively known as "bait fish", were grouped together in an enormous bait ball above the wreck, with dozens of sand tigers lazily meandering among the fish.... Read More

Black & White Category: "Morning Flight" By Filippo Borghi, Italy
During spring time from April to June on the coast of Baja California we can witness one of the most impressive migrations of the sea. Thousands of mobula ray's migrate along this coast. I try many times to find this incredible behavior but some how this has not occurred. This year, during a morning safari on the sea we saw a different group of beautiful mobular. I jumped in the...

Black & White Category: "Hypnosis" By Wendy Timmermans, Netherlands
I'm a freediving Vice-World Champion and can dive up to 83 meter while holding my breath. But diving deep is only one small part of my passion for the underwater world and for me, freediving the Mexican Cenotes has been a dream for many years. As freedivers, we explore the abyss on one breath only, in its purest way. It allows us to move gracefully through the water and makes... Read More

#5 British Underwater Photographer Of The Year. "Love Birds" By Grant Thomas, Uk

British Underwater Photographer Of The Year. "Love Birds" By Grant Thomas, Uk
I have always been fascinated by over-under photography, connecting the everyday terrestrial world that we all know with the less familiar underwater secrets. I chose Loch Lomond as the location for this shot due to its idilic scenery, water access and friendly swans. My initial idea was to frame a split shot of one swan feeding below the surface of the water but when I noticed how comfortable they were... Read More

#6 Macro Category: "Pretty Lady" By Tianhong Wang, China

Macro Category: "Pretty Lady" By Tianhong Wang, China
This is a Japanese pygmy seahorse, a lot of creatures in order to protect themselves, will stay in their own and similar color environment, so the adjacent color in the natural color will be easier to find. When I took this shoot, I used a large aperture and tried a variety of different combinations of lighting methods to blur the background to highlight the subject, but at the same time... Read More

#7 Wide Angle Category: "Blacktip Rendezvous" By Renee Capozzola, USA

Wide Angle Category: "Blacktip Rendezvous" By Renee Capozzola, USA
In French Polynesia, there is a healthy shark population thanks to their strong protection. It is my favourite place to photograph sharks as they often frequent shallow waters, which are perfect for split shots. It was my intention to go out at sunset and try to capture an over-under of the sharks. This shot was challenging as there was only a short time period when the sun was at the... Read More

#8 Wide Angle Category Winner: "Humpback Whale Spy Hopping" By Greg Lecoeur, France

Wide Angle Category Winner: "Humpback Whale Spy Hopping" By Greg Lecoeur, France
Each year, I go to Tonga to lead a small group of nature enthusiasts to photograph humpback whales. Tonga offers probably the best opportunity to interact with the whales in blue water. This year was very special, with my friends we had sone of my best moments in my underwater photographer's life: Very curious and playful whales came to investigate us and adopt the spy hopping posture in front of...

#9 Macro Category Winner: "Seahorse Density" By Shane Gross, Canada

Macro Category Winner: "Seahorse Density" By Shane Gross, Canada
The pond I was in has the highest density of seahorses on Earth, but I?ve never seen three together like this before. I was camping on shore and had all night to shoot with the idea of backlighting a single seahorse, but finding three together was a real gift. I was super careful not to disturb them because they will swim away if they?ve had enough. I had my off-camera... Read More

#10 Black & White Category Winner: "Crocodile Reflections" By Borut Furlan, Slovenia

Black & White Category Winner: "Crocodile Reflections" By Borut Furlan, Slovenia
When diving was finished for the day, I asked the divemaster to take me back again to a place, where seawater crocodiles are usually seen. I wanted to shoot them in low evening sunlight, when the sky turns into warm colours. When we arrived, the sun was already on the horizon and it was very dark in the water. I pushed ISO settings high to get some warm ambient light... Read More
