Part 1. The story of Danny Lugo and his gang of bodybuilders was made famous by the movie Pain & Gain, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. The movie highlighted the absurdity of the gang’s kidnapping plot against Miami businessman, Marc Schiller. The movie was a comedy, but the true story behind it was far more sinister.

It was June the 2nd 1994, a summer’s evening in Kirkwall, Orkney.

Waiter, 26-year-old Bangladeshi national, Shamol Mahmood, clocked in for his second shift that season. Little did he know, that this would be his last night alive.

As Shamol was serving his customers, a masked gunman walked into the restaurant, pointed a pistol at his head and shot him point blank.

It would take more than a decade to solve this case, which police referred to as the thousand piece puzzle.

And even after they arrested a man for this senseless crime, the residents of Orkney were still divided: was he really the killer?

It was 1989 and the scenic area of New Brunswick’s Miramichi was under siege. Elderly people were brutalized, raped and murdered.

Once buzzing with locals and holiday makers, the streets in The Miramichi were quiet. People were simply too scared to go out. They barricaded themselves into their homes. The quiet streets were dotted with police checkpoints and black-suited members of the RCMP Emergency Response Team, patrolled the area with guns, large vans and helicopters.

Would police catch the Monster of The Miramichi before he struck again?

It was a cool Wednesday morning in the peaceful New Zealand city of Palmerston North in August 2000. Glen Weggery arrived at his sister’s house, but no one came to answer the door.

As he walked inside, he saw his seven-year-old niece lying on the floor. Her blood-soaked hair covered her face and her head was in an unusual position. Glen immediately knew from the horrific scene that Amber was no longer alive. He made his way to the master bedroom and found his 38-year-old sister’s body on the bed in the master bedroom. She was naked, lying face-up, drenched with blood.

What happened to this mother and daughter in the late-August night at number 30 Karamea Crescent in the quiet neighborhood in Palmerston North?

After vacationing with friends in the beach resort of Varna in Bulgaria, Lars Mittank arrived at the airport, ready to return home to Germany.

CCTV cameras show that Lars walked around the check-in area aimlessly. He seemed calm and relaxed, just like any other traveller, waiting to board his flight. Hours later, Lars was seen running out of the airport, like the devil was chasing him. He left all his things: his phone, his bags, his ID…

Witnesses saw him climbing over an 8ft fence and run into a sunflower field. After that, he vanished into thin air and has not been seen since.

What happened to Lars?
