13+ Creepy Pics That Are More Sinister Than You Think

Sometimes it really is all in the details, as the creepiest things in our society are usually hiding in plain sight. Ever seen a "normal" picture and gotten the heebie jeebies just from its odd vibe? You're probably missing something, and with a second look over, you'll likely find the details that you wish you hadn't.

Not all creepy pictures are indicative of something sinister, but all sinister photographs are creepy as heck.

Sleeping With The Fishes

Reddit | Dlatrex

On first glance, this just looks like a lake that's jam packed with fish.

However, upon closer inspection, you'll discover that all of the salmon in the photo are dead, and that the man is trying to wade his way through an entire body of water filled with dead fish.

Close Contact

It's hard to tell what this is at first, but anyone who uses contact lenses will get it quicker than the rest.

Although, I don't think many people would guess that all 27 of these lenses were found in a woman's left eye.

Indiana State Police

In 2017, Liberty German and her 13-year-old friend Abigail Williams, two eight graders from Delphi Indiana, managed to photograph their killer.

The two girls were snapping photos and posting them to social media, when they noticed a heavy-set man and decided to post his picture to Snapchat. Despite the girls never being seen again after these photos, the case remains unsolved.
