5 unsolved mysteries caught on camera
1.The feltonville kidnapping Around 4:30 AM on June 13, 2012, a nine-year-old
girl in Feltonville, which is a suburb of Philadelphia, awoke to a naked man wearing
a green mask touching her leg. The man grabbed the girl, and she screamed. Her father heard the scream but assumed that
the girl, or one of her siblings who she shared the room with, was just having a nightmare. By the time he got up to investigate, he heard
the front door close and discovered that the girl was gone. He called the police, and by 6:30 AM, the
police and even the local media were at the girl’s house. Miraculously, that is when the girl came running
down the street screaming, “Daddy,” and she was reunited with her family on the front
porch of her house. She was taken to the hospital, where she told
them that she had been sexually assaulted in an alley near her house and then taken
to a playground, where the man threatened to kill her whole family if she told anyone
about the assault. He then let her go, and she found her way
home. The police only have two clues for the atrocious
crime against the unidentified girl. The first is surveillance footage from a pizza
place at the end of the house’s road. Unfortunately, the camera was too far away
to show specific details about the kidnapper, but it did provide a few clues. The man entered the house through an unlocked
front door at 3:50 AM. He stayed in the house for the next 40 minutes. At some point, he entered the room that the
girl shared with her sister and stepsister. The man only fled with the girl after she
screamed. These actions have led the police to speculate
that the man knew the family because he seemed comfortable enough to spend that much time
in the house, and he knew to target it. Also, police think that he was wearing a mask
to hide his identity, which means that the girl or her family might have been able to
recognize him had they seen his face. Police were also able to get DNA evidence,
and they tested it against men that the family knew, but no match for the DNA has ever been
found. 2.Brendan Vollmost
Brendan Vollmost, 23, went missing after he had his car smashed into, was chased, assaulted
and then kidnapped by up to four men in South Windsor, west of Sydney, on March 31. Vollmost has not been seen since and police
believe he was murdered and his body has never been recovered. Perhaps, The most chilling part of the case
was a CCTV footage released by the police. The horrifying CCTV footage may have captured
the final, desperate moments of Vollmost’s life. The footage shows the 23-year-old and two
friends in a car, pulling into his driveway at Cox Street, South Windsor, at about 10.30pm
on March 31. The car is still moving when Vollmost opens
the door and jumps out. He and the driver run from the car, leaving
the third person inside the vehicle. He frantically tries to scramble over the
fence before it swings open and he and the driver run into the yard. At almost the same time, a white Hyundai i30
arrives. Several men jump out of the car and race up
the driveway, pursuing Vollmost into the yard. Police believe Vollmost was bashed to death
in his back shed while his girlfriend was inside the house they shared, and that the
men carried Vollmost out of the yard, bundled him into their car and drove away. Previous reports suggested the crime may be
connected to drugs and Vollmost might have been involved in a collision with the Hyundai
just before he was abducted. Blood found in the property’s shed suggested
he had been seriously injured before being taken away. Detectives are still searching for Vollmost’s
body and the Hyundai, but suspect the car is still in the western suburbs because it
hasn’t been detected crossing any of the toll points on the major highways out of the Hawkesbury. Vollmost, who was on a two-year good behaviour
bond for drug possession and driving offences, was travelling with friends at the time his
vehicle was struck. Police are working with Vollmost’s passengers
to better understand why brendon was targeted. The footage led to arrest of 4 men who based
on evidence collected by the police have been charged with bredon’s murder. Police have confirmed the four men, three
aged 25 and one aged 33, are part of a group calling themselves the “Blood Brothers”,
and the death was likely a result of drug trafficking. however, bredon’s remains have never been
found and the men refuse to give any information about him. Brendon and the car still remains missing. 3.Kayelyn Louder
30 year old Kayelyn Louder had led a relatively normal life until September of 2014. She had been a social worker at a boys school,
but had recently been let go. She lived in a Murray, Salt Lake City Utah
condo with a friend and her beloved dog who she scarcely left home without. On the night of September 26 2014, Kayelyn
began to act strangely. She placed an anxious call to 911, claiming
there was a fight outside her condo which involved firearms. Police arrived and found no fight…only a
peaceful wedding reception next door. The next day, Kayelyn called 911 once more. She was convinced that someone had broken
into her apartment. She claimed she believed there was more than
one intruder, as she had heard someone say something akin to “check in there”. While on the phone, Kayelyn’s friend had
awoken and walked in, trying to calm her, assuring her that their door was locked and
there was no one in the house. Kayelyn eventually calmed, but later that
evening she walked out of her home into the rain outside, barefoot and with none of her
possessions, and was never seen alive again. Over nine weeks later. Kayelyn’s body was found in the Jordan River,
about six miles from her condo. A coroner could not establish a definitive
cause of death, and labeled in “undetermined due to water exposure”. There are also two surveillance videos from
Louder’s condominium complex that capture her. One recorded her outside her condo at 3:30
p.m. on Sept. 27, apparently having an animated conversation with herself, according to police. but to me she just seems to be talking to
her dog. The second was at 5:45 p.m., showing her walking
out of her residence barefoot and wearing a tank top. Police say that was the last known location
of Louder. She left her cellphone and keys behind, and
her beloved family dog. Investigators fear she may be delusional. Family members say Louder does not have any
diagnosed mental illness and they were unaware of any medications she may have been taking. Whether she simply walked away, was planning
on meeting someone, got a ride or exactly what happened to her is unknown. Family members say Louder was “kind of a quirky
cousin” who was very social in talking to everyone, even her dog. But she was also a homebody who loved to watch
movies or play board games. The day she went missing, the family believed
she had plans to stay home and update her resume. Regardless, police did not believe that foul
play was involved. It seemed to most that Kayelyn had suffered
a psychotic break that lead to her death. However she had never shown signs of mental
illness before, and how she had walked six miles barefoot and wearing clothes obviously
unfit for the weather, without being seen remains unclear. 4.Emma Fillipof Emma Fillipof had always been a free spirit. The 26 year old had set off to live on her
own in Victoria, Vancouver after becoming depressed and stressed by her parents divorce. She worked at a seaside restaurant and spent
a lot of her time writing poetry. But in the weeks leading up to her disappearance
she began to struggle with her new life. She journaled about her loneliness, and expressed
unease that someone might be stalking her. She had to stay at a women’s shelter several
times, and finally on November 26th 2012, she called her mother and begged to come home. Emma’s mother made plans to fly out to Victoria
to get her immediately. On November 28th Emma went into a 7 Eleven
and bought a pre-paid cell phone. Surveillance video indicated that she seemed
anxious to return outside, as if avoiding someone. She then tried to take a taxi to an airport,
but was ejected after not having adequate fare. She returned to the women’s shelter for
a time, then went back to the 7 Eleven and bought a pre-paid credit card. She was last seen between the times of 7:30pm
– 8:30pm in front of the Empress Hotel. According to a witness, Dennis Quay (an acquaintance
of Fillipoff, said Emma seemed confused. He saw her at a zebra crossing, refusing to
cross the street. Quay asked her if she was feeling okay, and
asked her if she was being followed, due to her paranoid mannerisms. Fillipoff said she was okay, so not knowing
what to do; he entered a near-by restaurant and made a phone call to the police, claiming
there was a dazed and distressed woman pacing in front of the Empress hotel. He assumed the police would pick her up, however
they didn’t. Police showed up and found her shoeless. They questioned her for a total of 45 minutes,
asking if she felt suicidal or homicidal. She answered no to both questions and said
she was going through some things, and was taking a walk before going to stay with a
friend. Apparently convinced Emma was alright and
having no reason to take her, they left her at about 7:45pm. That was the last time Emma was ever seen. A CCTV footage that investigators found was
a clip from a local YMCA five days before Emma went missing. In the clip, she walks in and out through
the door six times, peering out through the glass. Her cellphone was never activated, and her
credit card was found by an alcoholic man who used it to buy cigarettes and could not
remember where he had found it. The rest of Emma’s possessions were found
locked in her van, indicating she did not run away. Her mother arrived in Victoria just three
hours after Emma had last been seen. Though a search began and a reward was offered,
nothing could be found of Emma. In May of 2014 a man walked into a Gastown
Vancouver convenience store and ripped a poster of Emma off the wall, crumpling it. When the concerned employees questioned him,
the ‘creepy’ man reportedly said “It’s one of those missing persons posters, except
she’s not missing, she’s my girlfriend and she ran away ‘cause she hates her parents.” The man was caught on CCTV and police were
called, but he has yet to be identified, and it is unknown if he actually knows Emma. 5.Yukari Yokoyama
One of the more infamous cases from japan was the Yukari Yokoyama Missing Persons Incident
of 1996 (横山ゆかりちゃん行方不明事件 in Japanese). Yukari was a 4-year-old girl whose parents
Yasuo and Mitsuko took her and her baby sister to a pachinko parlor on July 7, 1996 in Gunma
Prefecture’s Ota City. Pachinko is a pinball-like arcade game that’s
been popular in Japan since the early 1950s. Like pinball, you try to shoot little balls
into one of the holes in the machine. You win every ball that lands in a hole, and
you can exchange these balls for prizes. While the Yokoyamas split up, with Mitsuko
taking their baby daughter and Yasuo going off to play at a machine in a different row,
Yukari was left free to roam around and play in the parlor. Around noon-time, Mitsuko bought some lunch
and took the kids outside to the car to eat. Yukari wasn’t very hungry during the time,
but decided that she wanted to eat some more after her mother started to play pachinko
again. Mitsuko then sent her daughter off with a
snack to eat on a near-by couch where she could keep an eye on her. Sometime after 1:40 PM, Yukari came back to
her mother and said something about an “uncle”. Mitsuko couldn’t hear very well over the
sounds of the pachinko machines though, and Yukari went back over to the couch unheard. 10 minutes later, Mitsuko looked up from her
game and noticed that Yukari wasn’t sitting on the couch anymore. When she got up to check where Yukari was
sitting, she found the girl’s juice and a half-eaten onigiri (rice ball). Mitsuko then told her husband that Yukari
was gone. After searching the parlor’s parking lot,
the Yokoyamas reported Yukari missing to a near-by police station around 2:10 PM. While the police searched the area over the
next two days, interviewing customers and other people who were in the parlor that day,
one witness reported seeing a little girl around Yukari’s age getting into a white
car around the time of her disappearance. There were other people who remembered seeing
Yukari in the parlor, but nobody paid any attention to her, and nobody could say whether
they saw anybody particularly suspicious either. A big breakthrough in the case came when the
authorities reviewed footage from the parlor’s security cameras. At 1:27 PM, a man about 5 feet, 2 inches (158
cm) came into the parlor and went into a bathroom located in the back of the building. The man, whose most distinguishing features
were some sunglasses, sandals, and a hat, came out three minutes later and then began
to wander the parlor. At 1:33, while Yukari was sitting on the couch,
the man came over and sat next to her. He smoked and talked to Yukari, pointing his
finger to the entrance a few times until he got up and left the building at 1:42. Yukari then went over to her mother and mentioned
something about “uncle”. After her mother paid her no attention, Yukari
walked over to the entrance and left the building, after which the security cameras lost sight
of her. Although the surveillance footage from the
parlor was widely shown in the media, and the shady man’s image was included on flyers,
Yukari’s abductor has never been identified. Some believe the man might have been a prior
customer, or was at least familiar with the parlor’s lay-out. As of May 2017, this case has remained completely
cold. If Yukari Yokoyama is still alive today, she
would be around 22 or 23.
