During Pentecost weekend 1976, five people were shot with a Winchester rifle in a home near the Swiss village Seewen. Carl Doser, the owner of the rifle is the main suspect in this case, but he went missing pretty much immediately following the crimes. The rifle was discovered in Dosser's mother's apartment in 1996, and a witness claims that in 1990 she met Doser and he stated that "he couldn't go back to Switzerland" because he was "being chased for murder." Authorities have never been able to track down Doser or even authenticate the rumors of his existence, which keeps the case open to this day.

UFO incidents take on many shapes and sizes, and this incident that occurred on January 23, 1974, is a wild one. The Berwyn Mountains in Llandrillo, Merionethshire, Wales, was the site of loud noises, bright lights, and a possible UFO crash that was covered up by the British government. However, skeptics believe that the area simply suffered a 3.5 magnitude earthquake.

Later, declassified Ministry of Defence documents revealed that a meteor struck the area, only adding to theories about a possible UFO.
