Real world X-files

The opening sequence of an X-files episode, or real life?
There is a lot of Strange News
on the internet, but I particularly like ones that could be the beginning of an X-files
episode, potentially only the tip of an even stranger iceberg, yet are reliable and well documented, with photographs of the mysterious blob
, or x-rays
of strange events that the person in question can't shed light on. As a kid I once played in snow that, much like this
, soon turned out to be silk, and similarly read urban-legend-like news articles of a home suddenly plagued by thousands of large poisonous spiders, coming up from underneath it, stumping experts as well for the species was never known to be anything but solitary. I assume that frequently, the explanation is found but never makes the news, leaving the mystery unresolved to the rest of us. Many, like Monkey-man attackers
, baby zombies
and strange killer grasshoppers
have a death toll or leave scars, directly or indirectly.
There are plenty of people trying to present themselves as real life x-files
, but I'm more interested in well documented events which stand out as bizarre and creepy, without having any of that pushed upon them, and (with a bit of reckless imagination) hint at something bigger - preferably with photo goodness. You no doubt have links of your own. Why not share the better ones. (Or even make up a brief x-file-like mystery around a weird link, then post the link as if to show the story really happened :-)
