  • What if the four men in the lighthouse were just lazy sons of bitches, and did not do their jobs properly? When they were to be caught red handed by the Hesperus crew, Moore went to "investigate" alone to try and save themselves by creating a "mysterious disappearance", faking logs and evidence. When Moore went back to alert the ship crew, his three lighthouse-mates snuck onto the ship, or escaped otherwise.

  • They should do an episode on the Frog Boys, they disappeared in Daegu, South Korea while looking for eggs in a mountain on March 26, 1991. 11 years later they found the 5 boys' bones on the mountain by 2 men. Initially, the police thought they died because of the cold, but on three of the boys skulls, there were marks that appeared to be made by a metal tool. According to the forensic team, the boys seemed to have been hit on the head and died from those injuries. There's actually a lot more on this case. It's very interesting!!
