If you’re interested in unsolved mysteries you’ve probably heard of David Lang- “The man who fell into time”.
The story goes; he was walking outside in the garden while his wife and kids watched from the kitchen window, when he suddenly vanished into thin air.
The horrified scream of his Lang’s wife drew the attention of a couple of local men who turned to look at the scene and notice that David was suddenly gone. (some stories report that the two men also disappeared)
Allegedly, all that remained was a circle of darkness tinged with yellow that stayed as a permanent shadow for quite some time- a shadow that could not even be faded by nature or time.
Whether this 1880’s tale had any truth to it was unconfirmed for a long time, but it would eventually come to be known as a hoax, conjured up by the imagination of a man called Joseph M. Mulholland (or Mulhatten) , who was infamous for his fictitious fables.
