The 25 Craziest Real-Life American Horror Stories

9. Big Lurch

Prior to April 10, 2002, Antron "Big Lurch" Singleton was a reasonably successful member of the Bay Area rap music scene, having worked with artists like Too Short, Mac Dre, E-40, and Yukmouth. But any hopes that Lurch had of becoming as popular as those rappers were obliterated on that April night, when the then-25-year-old heinously murdered Tynisha Ysais, 21, in her Los Angeles apartment. This wasn't a murder like any other you've ever heard about before, though.

At the time, Lurch was tripping from smoking tons of PCP. When Ysais' mutilated body was found, the unlucky discoverers saw that her chest had been ripped open and teeth marks were seen on her face and her lungs (which has been removed through the chest opening). There was also a three-inch knife broke off into her shoulder blade, which, allegedly, was used to cut through her chest.

Eyewitness accounts stated that Lurch was seen walking down the street naked, drenched in blood, and lifelessly looking up at the sky. And after he was captured, medical tests revealed that chunks of human flesh, not his own, were found in his stomach. Years later, though, evidence surfaced that suggested Lurch didn't in fact commit the murder, due to DNA found in Ysais' apartment that didn't match his. Singleton is still currently serving a life sentence inside California State Prison.
