Gracie Před 3 dny
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

In all honesty, they were 100% swept away by the ocean. This is one of the most remote Scottish islands, in December, with record of stormy weather. Heck, the guy employed to keep an eye on the light from afar probably didn't think much of not being able to see the light for days because IT'S A RURAL SCOTLAND ISLAND IN DECEMBER.

If I imagine living in the 1800's I would probably be quick to point all my theories at the supernatural too. Like I don't know much about how the world works and neither does anyone else so, it must be magic? That's why these unsolved cases are weird to us now, because back then, nobody knew what evidence to look for and things just appeared "normal". The only evidence we can base research off of now, is the evidence collected back then. Maybe a big wave did hit the lighthouse but people pushed it under the rug because of insufficient evidence. In the 2000's, people don't really blame aliens or mermaid people on strange occurrences, because we know now what really happens. There's probably a logical explanation, and we just fail to find it.

3 men went missing on an island known for having 300 foot waves, and the strongest recorded winds in the UK... what the hell is the mystery?! one or more of them fell into the water by a wave or the wind and the others tried to help and they fell in too... simple.

Theory 1 is pretty much the most plausible. One fell into the sea, the others attempted to rescue him and then fell in themselves, possibly during a sweltering of waves from the intense winds of the North Sea. Why were the bodies never found? It's the ocean, they sank and were eaten by crabs and hagfish, most bodies in the sea remain there.

This just in: Shane and Ryan think lighthouse keepers run off the same rules as moths. XD
The answer to the mystery is very simple. One of the men killed and ate the others, then ate himself.
Jordan Ramsey
Jordan Ramsey Před dnem
Couldn't pirates have just landed on the island and kidnapped them? That's the only realistic theory besides the violent lighthouse keeper killing them and then committing suicide. Also, they could have all been at the tackle box and got hit by a wave simultaneously.
