50 Chilling Unsolved Mysteries From The 1960s And The Stories Behind Them

CULTURE | October 31, 2022

Written by Jacob Shelton

The 1960s may be remembered as a glorious era where stars honed the art of the cool, and rock 'n' roll came into its own with some of the greatest anthems in human history. However, it was also when the Vietnam War ripped America in half, and Jim Crow laws continued to haunt the south.

Many of the unsolved cases from the 1960s are gruesome, brutal stories of killers disappearing into the night, but they also feature UFOs, presidential assassinations, and escapes from maximum security prisons.

These chilling stories from the 1960s have never been resolved, and many of the cases remain open. Hopefully one day they'll be solved.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
