Stories Of People Who Realized Somebody Very Close To Them Committed A Major Crime.

The truth is, you never really know some people. It can turn out that that creep co-worker was a burglar, or your neighbor was a murderer. Then there are the people you might suspect, and are not all that surprised when it turns out they've committed a major crime. It's jarring either way.

Here are some of people's craziest stories of people they've known who have committed major crimes.

Many thanks to the Reddit user who posed this question and to those who responded. You can check out more answers from the source at the end of this article!

1/20. My family used to rent out half of our house when I was a child. My dad always thought the couple he rented to were creepy, but they paid rent on time so they stayed. Apparently I even used to think I was related to him (child logic said he was in our house so he was family) and go up and hug him, which bothered my dad a lot.

Eventually my dad's fears were confirmed, the man kidnapped a little girl the same age as me. Then he came over to our part of the house and tried to come in (luckily me and my sister pretended we were not home). He is in jail now.

It freaks me out thinking about it sometimes. Did you ever feel like you were being watched as a kid? Because in retrospect I probably was.


2/20. My dad used to rent the bottom half of his house out to random dudes so that he could afford his mortgage. One of them was really nice to me and my brother, and he ended up hanging himself downstairs while the rest of us were all in the living room.

The guy after that was also really cool and funny, but he used to invite his girlfriend over and beat her up. One day my dad was sick of him, and fought him. The cops were called, and his roommate ended up going to jail. While he was in there they matched his finger print to a cold case from years before. He is currently in prison for murder in the first degree.


3/20. Donald Traub. Willow Grove, PA. He used to babysit my little sister and I'd go over to his apartment and borrow movies and such. He was randomly shooting people at this point.

He finally murdered some lady in a supermarket parking lot. I'll never forget, my mom was scared about the shootings cause she rode the bus to work and people at bus stops were shot at and she was talking to Donald about this and he goes "oh Kathy, I don't think you have anything to worry about". CRAZY. I'm just glad he liked me and my family, I guess.


4/20. A whole bunch of us who hiked the Appalachian Trail over the last ten years knew and liked "Bismark", one of the coolest and nicest guys anyone met along the trail.


He'd been hiking for years and practically lived on the trail. Turns out he was on the run from the FBI for having embezzled millions.


5/20. Had a client at the animal hospital where I worked who would bring in her sweetheart of a pitbull every couple of weeks for boarding. She always said she wanted to board for 3-4 days and the poor dog always wound up staying close to two weeks. She spend half her life in our kennel but we loved her and tried to keep her happy.

One day the lady comes in to pick up the dog, as usual more than 7-10 days later than she said she would, and that's the last time we saw her or the dog. About a week later, a couple of policemen come into the clinic asking when we last saw the woman, and the receptionists followed up by searching her name in Google.

Turns out she had murdered her boyfriend and gone on the run.

The police found her hiding under a bed at a relative's house. We never found out what happened to her dog, Sunshine.


6/20. A good friend of mines dad, who was really loaded, got caught making fake paintings from famous artists and selling them at auctions for a ton of money. He went to a federal prison for 5 years and is now out and still really rich.


7/20. Me and my friends met this kinda weird guy at a party, told us he kills pedophiles for money. None of us believed him obviously, but six months later he's on TV, convicted of killing a pedophile.


8/20. Met my cousin's cousin at a wedding when I was a kid. We got along instantly and had a lot of fun despite the boring wedding. Seemed like a perfectly normal kid.

Couple years later he's in jail for kidnapping a girl he liked.


9/20. Growing up, I was never very popular or well-liked. The worst of the bullies, the guy who really made my life terrible, we'll call H. H didn't really stand out in any particular way from the others, but he always seemed to go the extra mile to piss me off.

Fast forward to just a few months ago, I ran into some old High School classmates, and it got me reminiscing. Eventually, his name popped into my head, and I thought "let's see how things turned out for him".

I google H's name, and our town, and am immediately greeted with a headline detailing a guilty verdict for causing a fatal accident. From a bit more digging, it turns out that he both used and cooked Meth, and had been busted for it multiple times.

As for the accident itself, H apparently was "spun" on Meth, crossed into the oncoming lane and knocked both vehicles off the road. While disabled in the ditch, he contacted his parents to pick him up.

They arrived and helped gather up his drugs which were scattered all over the interior, and drove him away from the scene, leaving the other driver to die. Thankfully the police tracked him down and brought him to justice in the end.

This county is just chock full of shining examples of humanity.


10/20. High school classmate ended up murdering his mom 10 years after we graduated.


11/20. When I was in high school, there was some real weird, disturbed kid who posted online that he was planning on bombing our school at 11 AM on whatever certain date. Fortunately he was caught before he was able to go through with anything. Guy is still in jail.


12/20. I've worked with a number of people who were pretty rough.

Two different guys who robbed banks. One guy who later did 8 years for having sex with a minor. Watched him arrested by US Marshalls in full gear in front of my office door. At least one murderer. One guy who was a serial Domestic Abuser.


13/20. There were two kids in my grade in high school that had been dating for a few months. They kind of flew under the radar, but seemed nice enough. Pretty "goth"/emo-type, but didn't cause any trouble.

One day I heard that they'd both been missing from school for a few days, which was weird.

Turns out, they had been plotting to kill the girl's father over the phone when he overheard and called the cops. They admitted to it and were in jail waiting for trial.


14/20. I dated a girl whose sister was one of Ted Bundy's victims at the U of Florida.


15/20. Met a friend of a friend in college. Right off the bat this was a person I didn't want to associate with. He said he wanted to be a cop.

Years ago he went drinking with his friends. The 5 of them all got into his car. The crazy thing is they all knew he had been drinking and was drunk at the time. But they let him drive.

He got into a head on collision with a young HS couple. The driver, a 16 yr old boyfriend was killed at the scene and his gf had minor injuries. The drunk driver's 4 passengers were fine, shook up and didn't suffer any serious injuries.


16/20. The first weekend of November when I was back home visiting mum, one of my older brother's friends from highschool popped around (unexpected) twice to say goodbye before he was to move interstate.


This would be completely unnoteworthly if not for the following weekend when he went into a blind rage and killed his own father. He currently being held until psych evaluations can be taken, so until April (when his murder trial begins) he'll either spend his time in prison or in a psych institution.

It's unfortunate, he was a really lovely guy in highschool but turned to alcohol and later much harder drugs to repress the fact his father used to abuse the three boys (possibly also his two sisters) when he was a kid. The drugs then exacerbated the schizophrenia he had inherited from his father.

We're not sure what made him snap or how he killed him as they've released very few details in the week and a half since it happened, I imagine they won't release anything until the trial.


17/20. My best friend's father worked with Jeffrey Dahmer.


18/20. A good friend had a co-worker friend (who she was also interested in at the time) that she had tag along to dinner and a couple of hangouts. Never liked the guy, and she eventually stopped bringing him around. A few weeks later, he was arrested and eventually found guilty of shooting and killing a cab driver after getting a ride home from a party. Still freaks us out.


19/20. I had a friend who seemed a bit off to me when I met him, from a mutual friend. We used to smoke and drink together. I don't know what happened, but he wound up 2 states over in a stand off with cops.

He had a backpack, a gun, ammo. In the backpack he had a list of cops he wanted to kill. No idea how he even got their names. In the end he was found uh... incompetent I guess is the word. Spent some time in an institution. Got released. He's doing ok now.

20/20. The shift supervisor I was closest with at a grocery store I worked at briefly at 18 ended up getting federally charged, or arrested idk, for being a domestic terrorist. After working with me he moved down state to NYC and was going to put pipe bombs in certain individuals cars.

He was caught before he did that though.


Bonus #1

My neighbor's dog got loose from the backyard, ran into the nearest deli, and playfully trashed the place. Don't know if this counts but it did happen.


Bonus #2

Not me myself, but a woman I used to work with (I work in education) was the person you would always see the naughty people with in school. She told me about all the other schools she had worked in and in one, there was a boy who went by the name Jon Venables. She recalled how she went to work one day to find out that he told his little brother to lie about being sick and not coming in. She thought nothing of this, the little brother normally always told the truth.

Then she told me how she went home and saw on the news a little boy being taken from 'The Strand', which is a shopping centre. She saw the CCTV images and was debating on whether to call the police as she couldn't be to sure. In the end, she did and it turned out to be him


Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

- RazerWolf04

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

- shicole3



I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold


Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

Shower Schedule

My friend keeps telling me that the norm is that a person should shower once a week. This has been going on for years. I'm almost convinced he's trolling me.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Male Chickens

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Lightning McQueen

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

Woman wanted ice on the bottom of her drink.

Time Zones Exist

Coworker claimed that it was the same time of day and the same season on the whole globe. Had to get 4 coworkers to confirm to him that time zones do in fact exist.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.


Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
