The wonderful thing about photographs is the same thing that can make them the most eerie: they preserve a moment in time forever. If it’s a happy moment, a photo is fantastic. Sometimes though, the moment captured is harrowing – either for what’s happening… or even worse, what’s about to happen.

Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon took this selfie while on a hike in Panama from which they never returned.
The two Dutch tourists were visiting Panama and were supposed to go on a hike in the jungle with a tour guide, but for some reason, the girls decided to go by themselves a day early. They never returned from the hike. A backpack containing their clothes, a passport, their cell phones, and a camera was recovered several weeks after they disappeared.
The camera contained 90 disturbing shots taken in the middle of the night, most of them were just black, but among the photos there was one of the girls’ belongings spread out on a rock, a strange piece of fabric or paper hung from a tree, and a photo of one of the back of one of the girls’ head with what appeared to be blood.
Even more disturbing, the girls’ cell phones showed that they tried to call emergency services for 11 days before their cell phones ran out of batteries. Some of their bones were eventually discovered in the jungle, but nobody knows what happened to the girls or how they died.

TV was such a silly guy. We played Football together, and he was a core part of the squad.
After football practice on Fridays, the squad would get together and head to Pleasure Island. While the rest of us were trying to pick up chicks, he was playing incredible pranks, and just being a mischievous bastard.
It always amazed me how he could cross the line so many times, and never face trouble.
He always appeared joyful and would be the last person I would suspect to take his own life.
It’s been years, but I still randomly think of that tricky son of bitch; photo bombing people, pulling the pants of roided up guys, and leading gay guys on for the kicks.

Steve Irwin was a much loved TV personality with an obvious passion for dangerous animals that live on earth. He often was seen filming near crocodiles or other deadly species in the Outback.
