Famous People In History Whose Identities Remain Unknown

The world is a massive place, and despite the connectivity of the world nowadays some things remain a mystery. Legends have been built up around people we have never learned a thing about except the actions that got them noticed, leaving speculation about their true identity. The following people in particular have caught the interest of several generations.

The Max Headroom Hacker

During an airing of the Doctor Who episode “The Horror of Fang Rock” in 1987, a man hijacked Chicago airwaves. His interruption of the phenomenal episode of Doctor Who only lasted a little over a minute, but it was enough to make an impact. He spent much of the time talking nonsense about Coke before being cut off. The only record of his interruption is the few people that recorded it on VHS.

Banksy

Grafitti artist Banksy is known for his art full of social commentary. The graffiti appears when no one is around and in random places. The man behind the art has gone to great lengths to keep his identity secret, including falsifying reports of his arrest. An artist that wants comlete anonymity because he wants his art to speak for itself is pretty rare. Banksy’s considered such an icon that a recurring Doctor Who character was even created specifically to give the legendary artist a face.

The Kissers On V-J Day

The day the Allies had a victory in Japan and the worst war in history was ended was a celebratory moment for all. In Times Square a famous sailor and nurse kissed in celebration, their image forever linked to that day. Their faces were obscured, and in the panic, the photographer never got their names. Many people have claimed to be the couple in the picture, but nothing has ever been proven. Another famous photo comes from the actions of the next unknown person.

Tank Man

In 1989, amidst protests against the communist government of China, one man would do something daring. The Chinese government retaliated against the protesters by sending in military forces. A man with shopping bags stopped in the middle of a road, blocking the way for the tanks. He eventually climbed on top of one the tanks to talk to the crew before being dragged off. What happened to him is unknown, though it is speculated that he was executed.

Jack The Ripper

Jack the Ripper is synonymous with serial killers, perhaps being the most famous one despite his case never being solved. During a string of grisly murders in London’s East End in 1888, the London Police scrambled to find the killer. Nothing ever came of it and many are still speculating about just who this killer was over 100 years later. Jack will forever be a mystery, but an interesting one nonetheless.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
