5 Creepy Facts About Oregon
Unfortunately, Oregon has a long history with serial killers. One of the creepiest was the I-5 Killer in the 1980s. Although he was convicted of just one murder, it’s believed he might’ve killed up to 44 people during his horrifying killing spree.
Many mysteries and crimes in Oregon have gone unsolved, but none are quite as puzzling as the mystery of what happened to D.B. Cooper in 1971. After hijacking a Northwest Orient Airlines flight, Cooper jumped out of the plane never to be seen again.
Underground caves are creepy in general, but the Malheur Cave in southeast Oregon is especially bone-chilling. It’s the site of all kinds of eerie conspiracy theories, including rumors that it’s the site of satanic rituals, devil worship, and perhaps even a portal to the underworld.
Covering 21-square-miles and measuring 1,949-feet in depth, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the U.S. and one of Oregon’s greatest wonders. However, it’s also host to a myriad of legends regarding unexplained deaths and disappearances. From disappearing planes to vanishing explorers, there are almost too many to count.
Whether you believe in the monster or not, Oregon is undoubtedly Bigfoot country. Dozens, if not hundreds, of Bigfoot sightings have been reported throughout Oregon dating back to 1904. The North American Bigfoot Center in the town of Boring is dedicated to researching these accounts and obtaining evidence for the hairy creature.
