Elena Ceaușescu was the wife of Romania’s Communist leader, Nicolae Ceauescu. She was held responsible for the elimination of birth control during the 1970s and 1980s, which as a result, led to an abundance of unwanted babies and children that were housed in state operated orphanages throughout the country. She also headed the state health commission which denied the existence of AIDS in Romania, which led to one of the largest outbreaks in the western world. She was also responsible for the food rationing which took place in the 1980s. She was eventually executed for her crimes against humanity by firing squad in 1989.

44 Days Of Hell – The murder story of Junko Furuta
TW// very graphic
Junko Furuta was a 16-year-old Japanese girl who attended a high school in Misato, in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. She was a good-looking, active teenager who enjoyed a lot of attention, which made some people jealous. Hiroshi Miyano, had a crush on her but not looking for a relationship, Junko Furuta turned him down. Hiroshi Miyano was the bully in the school and involved with the new generations of the Yakuza, nobody dared to oppose him. And Junko Furuta had the nerve to say “No”.
On November 25, 1988, she was kidnapped by four teenage boys, one of them was Hiroshi Miyano. The boys took Junko Furuta to the house owned by one of the kidnappers’ parents in the Ayase district of Adachi, Tokyo.  While in captivity, the kidnappers forced Junko Furuta to call her parents and tell them that she’d run away and is going to stay with a friend, but insist that she’s not in danger. Not able to realize what was coming and too scared to remain non-compliant, Junko did exactly as she was told, ultimately forestalling a manhunt that would have otherwise followed her disappearance.
Parents of Nobuharu Minato in whose house Junko Furuta was kept visited their son on a few occasions. Still, under a threat of increased violence against her, Junko was requested to pretend that she was a girlfriend of one of the boys. However, even when it became apparent that she was a captive in the house, the parents did nothing for fear of retaliation from Hiroshi Miyano, who was known to have the Yakuza connections.
During 44 days following her kidnapping, Junko Furuta was forced to withstand unspeakable suffering. What she went through before her murder included:
- She was humiliated by being kept naked most of the time - She was raped every day in both the vagina and anus. More than 100 men are believed to have raped her – the captor with Yakuza connections had invited other Yakuza members to join. She’s estimated to have gone through about 500 rapes. At one point, she was raped by 12 different men in one day.
She endured physical beatings included hits with golf clubs and bashing of the face against the cement floor. The 100 men who are believed to have raped her had also reportedly enjoyed urinating on her. Frequently, to turn her rapists on, she was forced to masturbate in front of them and their guests. She had various objects forced into her vagina and anus, including a bottle, an iron bar, scissors, roasting needles, grilled chicken skewers, etc.
Other things she endured were;
Provided with only a limited supply of food or water.
Was forced to eat live cockroaches and drink her own urine.
Had fireworks forced up her ass and set them off, causing severe burns
Had her left nipple ripped off with pliers.
Had dumbbells dropped on her stomach while lying on the floor with hands and feet tied up – this resulted in a loss of bowel control.
Was hanging from the ceiling and used as a boxing bag.
Was kept in a freezer for several hours.
Had eyelids burned with hot wax and lighters
Had breasts pierced with sewing needles
Had her vagina and clitoris burnt with cigarettes and lighters
Had a hot, lit bulb inserted into her vagina and rubbed until it exploded inside.
While she was only one quarter through her ordeal, owing to ongoing beatings, Junko Furuta could not breathe through her nose due to the accumulation of blood in her cavities. Her traumatized internal organs refused to accept food and water, so when she tried to drink, she instantly vomited, which kept her more dehydrated. It also agitated the perpetrators, who punished her with more beating for soiling the carpet.
At one point, when the attackers were resting after drinking, she tried to call the police but was caught and punished by having her feet set on fire with burning lighter fluid. Large bottles the perpetrators forced up her anus caused internal injuries and ugly bleeding. Severe leg burns and badly bruised muscles left her unable to walk after 20 days of her ordeal. She couldn’t handle anything with her hands anymore because her bones were smashed with weights and her fingernails cracked. Since it was winter, she was also forced to sleep on a balcony, exposed to cold temperatures.
After 30 days, Junko Furuta could not urinate properly due to damage to internal organs and vulva from the insertion of foreign objects and burns from cigarettes and lighters. Her hands and feet were damaged severely, and it took her over an hour to crawl downstairs to the bathroom. Her eardrums were also damaged, and her brain size was reduced.
During the 44 days, when she was repeatedly tortured, beaten, and raped, Junko Furuta begged her captors several times to just kill her and be done with it. They didn’t grant her that favor. Instead, on January 4, 1989, they challenged her to a game of Mahjong solitaire. She won, and that pissed the boys off, so they treated her to a beating with an iron barbell and fire by setting her legs, arms, face, and stomach alight after pouring lighter fluid on them. Being already severely beaten, dehydrated, and malnourished, Junko Furuta fell into a shock and died the following day.
The murderers stuffed the dead girl’s body in a 55-gallon drum filled with concrete and disposed of it in Koto, Tokyo.
All four perpetrators were caught and tried. However, because they were all under-aged when the crime was committed, they were tried as juveniles. Eventually, they faced sentences of adults, except that the court withheld their identities. Still, given the severity of their crimes, the sentences they were handed out were relatively low.
Each of them is already out of jail.

Wyoming’s Oldest Missing Persons Case: The Strange Disappearance of Olga Mauger
Tumblr media
December 01, 2021
Olga Schultz was a raven-haired beauty,  who grew up in Wyoming, an area where hunting and fishing were the norm. Olga was a big outdoors kind of girl, and was extremely equipped to handle long hikes and spend hours outdoors. Olga was actually the descendent of Jackson Hole mountain legend, Beaver Dick Leigh. 
Olga met her soon to be husband, Carl, an oilman living in Midwest, Wyoming, at a dance one night. However, Carl had actually been at the dance with his girlfriend, a very serious girlfriend in fact, named Ella Tchack and the pair had been together for about 5 or 6 years. But when Carl saw Olga he fell in love, and the two quickly began dating and had gotten married in August 1934, just a few weeks after they had met. 
 On September 17, 1934, the couple, who were on the 6th day of their elk-hunting honeymoon, decided to stop to take a rest while they were hiking above Angle’s Camp (now known as Togwotee Mountain Lodge). 
On that particular day, Carl had suggested the two climb a small hill to look for elk. Olga, just 21 at the time, claimed she was tired and told Carl to go on without her, though Carl thought this was very strange considering his newlywed never typically got tired no matter how long their hike was. 
Nonetheless, Carl went on without Olga, though as he was climbing up the hill he turned back to check on her. Carl saw Olga sit on a rock within hearing distance of the passing cars on Togwotee Pass Road. Olga had been wearing tan breeches and high-laced boots, as well as carrying a small hatchet in her belt and a bag of sandwiches. 
Carl was only gone for a short period of time, returning to the spot where Olga had been sitting within a half hour. However, Olga was nowhere to be seen. Some reports claim that there was an empty bag of sandwiches in the spot, but others claim there was nothing left behind, it was as if Olga had never been there. Carl began to search for Olga, calling out her name but to no avail. 
Olga Mauger has never been seen since. 
On October 7, 1934, the headlines of the Sunday edition of the Helena Montana read, “POSSE SEEKING MISSING WOMAN, HUSBAND UNDER SUSPICION.”
Ranger KC “Sunny” Allan was investigating the case, and Carl told him the story of how he climbed up the hill for a short period of time, and when he had returned, Olga was gone. Carl never changed his story and claimed there was no reason for Olga to leave on her own. It also didn’t make sense considering the two had just gotten married and were on their honeymoon, if anything this should be the happiest time of your life, not a time where you would willingly disappear. 
Carl and Ranger Sunny agreed that Olga was an expert in the woods and would have never been able to get lost. Ranger Sunny got a search party going of more than 300 men, though none of them found anything.
The search was cut short by a snowstorm, and County Attorney Wilford W. Neilson told the Montana paper that there would be little hope in finding Olga with the snow. Neilson kept Carl under questioning for months, however he was eventually released in technical custody of his brother in law, Fred Schultz, Olga’s brother. 
Carl kept searching for Olga, and even returned to the area she went missing the following year with Olga’s two brothers to look for her. 
On August 15, 1935, Jackson Hole Courier ran a follow up on Olga’s disappearance, claiming that the search had been discontinued. Officials said that they had not given up on finding Olga’s body, but there were not enough men to help as they were busy working in hayfields or fighting forest fires. 
There are multiple theories as to what happened to Olga Mauger that day, over 87 years ago. Some believe that perhaps foul play was involved and that Ella, Carl’s ex girlfriend was involved somehow. Carl left Ella for Olga, which is reason for her possibly seeking revenge. Ella apparently had threatened to commit suicide over Carl’s marriage to Olga in a letter that she had supposedly sent to Olga herself. 
Ella had been wanting to marry Carl, but he had put off any marriage plans with her, telling her that he wanted to be more financially stable. Of course it was shocking and hurtful to Ella that Carl seemingly married Olga after a few weeks with no hesitation. 
Edith M. Thompson, Olga’s sister, told authorities that she believed her sister got cold feet after the wedding and had regretted her choice. Edith believes Olga left on her own accord, and had about $30 cash and was a trained stenographer when she left. That was a decent amount of money in the 1930′s and could get you pretty far and set up, and also would make it possible for her to have found a job anywhere and start a new life. 
The strange part about this case is that 7 years after Olga disappeared, Carl got an official divorce and remarried. However, he didn’t just get remarried to anyone, he got married to Ella. The couple moved to Redding, California and lived together for the rest of their lives. Carl lived to be 72 and died in 1978, where Ella lived to be 92 and died on March 19, 1998. 
Olga Mauger had simply vanished, and she is the oldest missing persons case in Wyoming records. Perhaps we will never know the true final location of Olga Mauger. There is an open filee for the disappearance, it is case no. C-15-02025. Any information in regard to this case can be relayed to Det. Jason Cox at (307) 332-5611.

recently saw a tiktoker talk about an ongoing case and say (direct quote) “we are literally watching a true crime documentary unfold before our very eyes” and that really sums up a lot of the criticisms I have about the way people talk about and consume true crime content. people are already twisting real peoples deaths into its potential future entertainment value for them before the family even has time to grieve

Woman found injured but alive on a remote part of the Croatian island of Krk doesn't know who she is, but speaks fluent English (TW: for blood and facial injuries)
This is a developing story that is happening right now in my country and I thought it was my duty as somebody who has a slight platform to bring this up to the attention of as many people as possible. If we spread her image around the net, someone will hopefully be able to recognize her. I apologize in advance for any mistakes, as English is not my native language.
Tumblr media
What we know so far: on Saturday the 11th, September of 2021, a local fisherman spotted a woman he didn't know on the rocks some distance away from a nearby popular beach. She didn't appear to be in bad spirits or in distress, and the area where she was at was not approachable to him by boat due to it being extremely rocky, but as she didn't call out to him he assumed she was just walking or relaxing there and paid it no mind.
However, the next day when he came back (Sunday the 12th), she yelled out to him asking for help in perfect English. As he could not get to her on his own due to the terrain making it impossible for him to dock there, he immediately called rescuers and a mission to save the unfortunate woman was underway. 12 members of HGSS Rijeka (Croatian alpine search and rescue organization) were dispatched to the scene and had to hike one mile to get to her.
They found the woman with some non-life threatening injuries, exhausted, dehydrated and disoriented. It was determined she spent the previous night there. She was unable to walk so they had to use a stretcher to carry her to the ambulance. She couldn't tell them who she was, as she could not remember and even today, over a week later, she can offer no answers to her identity and our police is asking the public for help.
Tumblr media
The woman (and I can't stress it enough that I hate calling her 'the woman' because she has a name and identity and a life and deserves to be known as more than just "unknown woman found injured on the rocks") is estimated to be around 60 years of age, is of medium build, 165 cm tall, with blue eyes and blonde, short hair. I've seen it reported as shoulder-length but in the photos her hair looks a little shorter to me.
At the moment of discovery, she was dressed in a dark blue and white striped short-sleeve shirt with a hood, black Capri pants, white socks, dark blue and white sneakers and a magenta pick bucket hat. She had no ID or a mobile phone on her. The fisherman's wife who was also on the boat with him has said that they spoke in English and that to her it seemed that her accent could have been Scottish, but she wasn't sure.
Tumblr media
I'd like to add that the fisherman should not be blamed for not helping her the day before, as she was not in distress, did not seem to be lost or injured from what he could tell and was not communicating with anyone nor asking for help, and only when he went back the day later, did she asked for help and make it known that something's not right. It's a good thing he went back because he likely saved her life.
She's currently still in the hospital in stable condition and recovering well, but the police are no closer to finding out who she is. Nobody knows how she got to where she was found or if there was any foul play involved, but there has to be somebody out there who knows who she is, that's why I implore you to share her photo wherever you can so we can help her reclaim her identity.
I'm including the photo of her face with the injuries she sustained because it's the only good photo of her we have right now, and of the rescue mission so you could get a better look at her clothes from when she was found.
Tumblr media
In the end, I'd like to thank you all for taking your time to read this lengthy post and for caring about a woman you don't even know who needs our help.
Sources I used for information: CNN HGSS

Crime stories are a fundamentally conservative way of looking at the world. Republicans bleat about high crime rates in lawless liberal cities because someone stole a toothbrush from a CVS. Suburban crime paranoia is as old as the suburbs themselves — hell, it’s why they exist to begin with. The reactionary basis of true crime is how you end up with ostensibly liberal podcast hosts defending the death penalty and arguing against double jeopardy protections. It’s easy and correct to condemn Fox News for increasing our grandparents’ blood pressure, keeping them in a perpetual state of fear about roving gangs of MS-13 coming to their gated communities, but we should also consider that other demographics might be susceptible to fear-stoking propaganda. How can we listen to story after story of women being abducted or murdered and expect it to not have an effect on our psyche? A study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania found that fear of crime and violence on television have both increased over time, despite crime rates declining, and that women reported more fear of crime on surveys than men. True crime runs on heightened emotion and fear, convincing people, and especially women, that every stranger is a possible murderer. I see women on Twitter questioning whether it’s safe to let a plumber into their house, or instructing others to rip out strands of hair to leave in cabs for DNA evidence in case the driver murders you. These are not sensible reactions, they are the thoughts of someone who has been deeply traumatized. So many true crime shows advise women to trust their instincts, but how can we trust instincts that have been hijacked by induced anxiety?

Enough of this “true crime” business. What I want to see is more media focused on false crime. Like, not as in crimes that are fictitious – I mean stories about real-life situations where everybody thought some crime had been committed, but then it turned out to be a wacky misunderstanding or a bizarre coincidence or just a weird thing that happened. I want “crime” documentaries whose sole purpose is to waste the audience’s time with true-to-life shaggy dog stories.

You ALL be regretting writing, or attempting to write, that book or script about the serial killer.
Prosecutor: “The defendant googled ‘How does a murderer clean up the scene?’ is that not highly suspicious?!”
Sobbing writer: “But it was for my pulp crime novel! And I still can’t get a publishing deal!”

the fact that the actual zodiac killer had to live with ted cruz taking his title for 3 years is by far the funniest and the only thing I'm taking away from all of this
