The Suspicious Case of the Reykjavik Confessions

The Suspicious Case of the Reykjavik Confessions

Show Video

This. Week on BuzzFeed himself we discussed the reykjavik confessions and icelandic case in which six people confess, to murders that police have no physical evidence ever occurred, this is a treat for me because. As. You, know yeah i went on a trip to Iceland, last year yeah I've heard about it it certainly is one of the many arrows in your anecdote, quiver a big one well I'm excited to tell you that perhaps the place that you deemed, heaven maybe, isn't so heavenly, stunning. This. Does yeah. Hot springs great stuff let's get into it on January. 26th. 1974. Booth moon Dare Anderson, a quiet, 18, year old laborer went, out drinking with some friends, they ended up in a dance hall and happen Arthur a town, just south of Reykjavik. Goof, moon Dare left the party in the early hours of the day and decided to walk home around. 2:00 a.m. two, of his friends saw, a good mood there on the road trying, to hitch a ride with another, man they did not recognize both. Men were clearly drunk and Guth moon there swayed, as he stumbled his way through the snow booth moon there never made it home, at the, time the, entire country, of Iceland's, population, was about two hundred and twenty thousand people for context that's five thousand, fewer people than lived in Reno Nevada, in 2010. Major, crimes were very very uncommon, they, didn't even have government. Bodies tasked, with finding missing, people after. A few weeks of searching and coming up empty the, volunteer, search parties ended, their hunt yeah, not a lot of crime they're not used to it still, I mean you should have some systems in place let me tell you something about Iceland. One morning we, woke up to, go on a beautiful kayak, trip, the woman who drove us to the kayak thing we were talking about just, the way things go there and she. Said you know we don't have a lot of crime here about, once a year we will do a murder and she made. And. I was like okay, I know you know you're not implying that the whole country gets, together and picks one person like the lottery and decides, to sacrifice, them. She. Said, we will do over there do a murder. Around, ten months after good moon there anderson disappeared. On november 19, 1974. A quiet, construction. Worker given their anderson, with no relation, to good moon there was watching TV with a friend at his home in kep Levesque the pair briefly left to go to the harbor cafe but Geffen there shortly returned, back, at home he received a phone call his. Wife goofed knee said governor, told the man on the other end of the call quote I've already. Come end quote. Followed by quote I'll come, and quote, GERD Fenner then drove his car into town parked, close to a cafe, left, his keys in the ignition exited. His vehicle and, was never, seen again, two, guys disappear, within the span of ten months they have the same last name no relation in a place where this is not common yes, so, we may have a bit of a crook on our hands, yeah maybe, turning around up the. Task force. To. Find the missing people another. Missing person, meant another search party of, volunteers, who, found no trace of Garin er this being the second disappearance, within the year detectives. Decided, it might be time to do a bit more sleuthing, the, first step for police, was to find out who called Garin er two teenagers, and a cafe employee described, a man they had seen place a call from a phone booth outside the cafe, from, these descriptions, the, police made a clay recreation. Of a man's face and began, showing it around kept, Levesque is a small town so, when no one could identify the man depict it in the police's, model, they assumed the man was from out of town the. Manager of a nightclub in nearby Reykjavik, was questioned, but released by, the following summer detectives, had no witnesses, and crucially, no, bodies, what they did have were rumors swirling around once, Ivar, see sales key so. This is a. Possible. Suspect. Based, off description, so instead of doing like a a police sketch they, did a yeah arts and crafts I got a little mr. Potato Head mr.. Potato Head here. Sy, VAR c sales key was a local petty criminal, with a penchant, for stealing things like alcohol candles. And checkbooks, he, sold drugs and, would tell his girlfriend. But let doctor about, his desire to commit, the quote perfect. Crime end quote, together, the two would forged checks using, airless, job as a telex, operator for Iceland's post and telecommunication.

Company Shortly after Geffen Nair went missing aired 'la and savart bought one-way tickets, to Copenhagen, with money they didn't bezel from Atlas job so, these are these these is like a Bonnie and Clyde situation, yeah, you. Know what actually. Now. That you bring this up I did. Go to Copenhagen. Right after Iceland, and it is a stunning. City. Wouldn't. Mind escaping there in. Denmark. Antlia, soon became pregnant and the couple moved back to Reykjavik, to have their baby in September 1975. In, order to support his new family, cybers, plan was, to smuggle cannabis. Into Iceland. Perhaps. Consequently, Ella, decided, the two should live apart. I'm. Gonna provide, for this family. Some, of that good good good, turn Iceland, into Greenland, baby. While. Police were still stymied, by the previous, year's two disappearances. They had been making progress on a case of some stolen money at the post and telecommunication. Company on December, 12 1975. Savar, was arrested, on suspicion, of embezzlement. Two, days later antlia. Was also taken into custody Ella. Initially, denied everything, authorities. Questioned, her and detained, her in solitary confinement, after. Seven days of grueling questioning. She confessed, to the post and telecommunication. Fraud as she, was preparing to be released, investigators. Showed Erika, a photo of Guth moon dirt intercept the first man to go missing, who, she recognized, from Reykjavik, they, had once shared a card together and had on another occasion ran into one another at a party, etna, told investigators. That she vaguely remembered, the night good moon there disappeared, she, had been at a nightclub without sy bar who she thought was in Denmark at the time when, she got home she immediately, fell, asleep though, she recalled a nightmare, in which she could hear sigh bars boys whispering, outside, her window. Sensing, the faintest, hint of a lead police, asked, her if it was possible she hadn't been dreaming, so instead. Of releasing her they'd been through Ella, back in solitary confinement, crook, Lord she admits to the embezzlement yeah and then they throw a Hail Mary they say here's a picture of goo moon there yeah hey you do crimes, you know. She. Remembers him she, has a nightmare that. Sigh bar who, is unaccounted, for is whispering, outside of her window the. Police then, say maybe, it wasn't a nightmare yeah, they then throw her back into solitary confinement two, birds one, stone as, they say that, is what they say little something I heard in Iceland.

Alone. Air club began to doubt her memories, she, thought quote is it possible, they killed someone in the apartment and I saw the whole thing and I can't remember, end quote, Ella, was questioned, for six hours on December, 20th, naming, sy bar and their friend Kristian Vitter as possible. Suspects, in booth moon dares disappearance. She also, mentioned, being perplexed, to come home On January 27th. 1974. The day after goof moon there disappeared, to find her bed sheet missing investigators. Drew, up a confession that said she saw cypher and three, others, carry the body of guthe Linder while wrapped in the missing bedsheet, antlia, signed it after being kept in solitary confinement, for days and being, threatened, to be kept there indefinitely all while, she had an 11, week old baby at home Eric, but herself was only 20 years old like. You put me in a room for. Three, straight days I'm. Starting, to already questioned my sense of reality yeah I needed. To talk to people the, next day cypher, who had been in solitary confinement this, whole time was, questioned, for 10 hours then, six hours the day after once, investigators, finally showed him airless confession, sy bar told investigators. He was involved along, with three friends Christian, who cypher had seen that adla had already named, Craig, V Runa and Albert, Kaun, so, he's in solitary he's, wondering what the hell's going on they're grilling, him for 16 hours and then, they show that his, you, know I guess former significant, other hasn't, a signed confession saying, this is what he did I think that's the last, draw right that breaks the camel's back and you may suspect if, he's. Thinking well if I confess to this maybe they'll just get me out of solitary but, if I implicate. Some other people maybe. Maybe that'll, spread. It out a bit exactly, the police had developed an unfortunate. Habit of during, their suspects, in solitary, confinement, anytime. They needed to solicit, a confession. In this criminal case they, arrested, the three men and threw them into solitary, eventually. The men all confessed, to playing roles in booth moon dares murder now, that they had extracted, confessions, for one disappearance, the investigators, wondered, was, it possible, that they could solve the second one - pretty. Much everyone I met in Iceland was so kind, and so polite I just. Imagined, the most polite people in the world doing this and being like well, we figured out that if you put them in that room you. Know they'd tell you. So. I guess, maybe we'll just keep doing that I would like to not think that's the case I would like to think that maybe the community is pressuring like this. Guy's running rampant they're killing, they killed two people that's twice the output in the last 20 years we got to do something and this. Is the answer they're they're doing result based investigative, techniques they're getting the signature they did their job in their head yeah that's how they're legitimizing, it which like. I said some people you, could you could understand that police. Went back to air club and asked, if it was possible the men they've gotten confessions, out of for good moon there's disappearance, could have also been involved in get winners as well antlia. Replied quote maybe, end quote. The police told their quote we have a reason to believe that you have experienced, something traumatic concerning, Geffen Ayres disappearance, and we are going to help you remember and quote, they, were like do you think this could maybe be connected, to this other disappearance.

And She said maybe. And, they're, like oh yeah that's the Greenline baby fire up that room again. Ridiculous. Oh great great this is the second, time they have taken her out she. Assigned something and thought I'm free good to go and then they said uh-uh uh-uh and, you, go so you just got to think about what. That would do to your brain her. Brain is Plato right now yeah the, police began to question it. Sighs var and Christian, about guarantors, disappearance, and sure, enough received. Confessions. From all of them their, stories however kept, changing at, one point the murder happened on a boat but, the final confession presented, in court said, the men had killed him on land eventually. Christian mentioned, a foreign-looking, man who, helped them murder Jeff inner that, foreign-looking, man was, eventually identified. As Guth yon Scarpia Tinson a former, teacher of ciphers if you had a good teacher they say like write a note to him let him know how much you appreciate it give him an apple or something it'd be weird to be like hey you did a great you I really liked the multiplication. Tables we did you. Want to kill a guy yeah, you did a really good job molding, my mind you did it such a good job I'd, like you to come. In with me on this big score. How'd you like to make a man disappear. Guth. Yan was arrested, on November 12, 1976. Though, he initially claimed, he could not remember the night in question which, at this point was almost two years ago 17. Days of solitary confinement managed. To jog his memory and, he confessed, by, December, 1976. Antlia, sighs Vaart Christian, Guth Yan trivy. And Albert, had confessed to involvement, in the murders despite, the fact that all suspects, demonstrated, foggy memory of the events the fact that aired Lucifer, and Christian all tried to retract their confessions, which the court rejected and the fact that no murdered bodies had been discovered in December, 1977. They were all found guilty by, the court and given, various sentences relating, to their involvement oh boy. Yeah, this, is this is now getting kind of comical at this point yeah they're, just roping him in it's, worth pausing to go over what life was like for the six while they were detained by the police, Albert. Spent a total of 88, days in solitary, confinement, antlia. Spent two hundred and forty-one days, goofy on spent, four hundred and twelve, days trip, Vee spent, six hundred and twenty-seven, Christiaan. Spent, six hundred and eighty two and savart. Spent, a whopping seven. Hundred and forty-one, days more, than two full years in, solitary confinement. They were periodically, prohibited, from sleeping, and interrogated. Hundreds. Of times according. To prison guard Lena Thor Magnussen SCI VARs head would be dunked, in buckets of water as he was told he'd drown if he did not confess that. Is ridiculous. Usually it seems like when they try to force a confession like, this it's. Like they maybe may, not reveal they've got someone locked up Duncan their head, in a bucket. Pretty. Proud of themselves you know I imagine, yeah be they were pleased, with the results while in detention, Christiaan twice, attempted, suicide at times, he was made to pose and recreated, crime scene photos in one, Christian. Strangles, a police officer, who is standing in for given her false, memory experts, say that the acting, out of supposed crimes, can make those crimes more, concrete, and realistic, in the suspects, mind, on May. 3rd, 1976. Art 'la who was not being detained at the time was, brought in for questioning as a witness, she was kept in custody overnight and the following day seemingly, out of nowhere give.

A Statement that she had shot air Fenner she, was then detained in, solitary. Until December, 22nd. Their, cruelty seems, to know no end if, you're already doubting, yourself in, thinking like man maybe maybe, my brain is just blocking. Off that part of my memory suddenly, now, you've. Got sensations, to tie to all the things that you may or may have not done the, psychology, of it is like maybe if I give them this or that they'll, let me go yeah and that's, all it becomes on New, Year's Eve, 1976. Gisli, Guth young son a young, detective at the time of the disappearances. Who has since become one of the world's foremost false, memory syndrome experts. Gave, Guth young a lie-detector. Test that, test, sparked, something in Guth young causing, him to suddenly question, whether he had been involved at all he, couldn't remember any event happening, gisli. Author of the book the psychology of false, confessions, 40 years of science, and practice, says, false memory syndrome which. Can be triggered by interrogations. With false evidence, isolation. And tense emotional, situations, can, lead to false confessions, easly says. Diary kept by Gucci on while he was detained in solitary, for 14 months was, the best example, of false memory syndrome he's ever seen of the, whole case gisli, says that quote these, individuals. Had absolutely. No knowledge of what happened they were just trying to appease the police they, were trying to be cooperative because. They knew if they were not cooperative, they, will be given more solitary confinement, end quote. Well, who's this young go-getter, shown up on the scene because I like the cut of his jib. Yeah. He's, kind of writing in like the white knight I like, you, got this young detective, sitting there he's, probably like hey, you know that guy's been in that room for 700 days maybe, that's not the best practice that we should be engaging, in yeah maybe.

Think About what we're doing here folks oh no no okay well I'm gonna write a book about you, know ya with youth comes a changing of the guard so to speak yeah it was necessary, here yeah in, September, 2018. Everyone. Was acquitted but ECLA who was still fighting a conviction of perjury, by, then everyone, had already finished, serving their sentences, and savart, and Cristian had already died both in their 50s while. Much of that was about how horrible, the justice system in Iceland, was in the 1970s, they're still a mystery, to get to the bottom of so, with that here, are some theories about what happened to Guth moon there Anderson, and gif man they're a nursin the, first theory is that the police got this one right Guth, moon dare was murdered by Erica sigh Park Christian, Albert, and trig, V governor. Was murdered by Erica Savar and Christian, and Booth Yin what. Evidence is there of this no, bodies were ever found, though there, was it was missing bedsheet. Missing. Bedsheet doesn't, always equal murder you know my, freshman year of college, mm-hmm, we, went to Bed Bath & Beyond to get some some. Stuff and my mom was like hey, you. Should get these rubber, sheets, I. Said. Why. On why in the hell would I buy rubber sheets and she was like you know case you spill like a pop, on your bed I thought she was gonna say cuz you're like sleeping, in a pool of your own vomit no no. Anyway back, to the murder did you buy the rubber sheets I'm actually no I didn't buy the rubber sheet I think who, would do that apparently. You because you're getting pretty touchy about it which makes me feel like I just know why we're standing in that room for ten days and then I'll ask you about the road okay how about that is good, you're bringing them back around the second theory is that neither man was, murdered while, crime was very uncommon, in Iceland, disappearances. Were not in fact, disappearances. Happened so often in Iceland, that they feature prominently. In the country's folklore, in the 50 years prior to these cases dozens. Of people had gone missing in Iceland, most, of them their cases unsolved, in the, more than 40 years since, the disappearances. Of gooth wonder Anderson, and get, veneer Anderson, they too have, also taken on in nearly mythical. Quality within Icelandic, culture, oh I'm, buying that because, in, Iceland, big open, fields were I don't think people are walking but, on the on the Reg so, you can get a body out there. Decomposes. Nobody, knows yeah. I'm booking up two years later than that book you might take a Dyson right now you've sold me you gotta check it I wasn't on board until you got to the decomposing, body in an open field but after that. Yeah. A third, theory is that the men were murdered but by someone else new evidence, in the case has compelled investigators. To reopen it a new, witness says they saw two men carry, a third weakened, man onto, a boat the date governor, went missing, that, man allegedly, told the eyewitness.

Quote Remember. Me end quote, when, the boat that was carrying two men and the one Wigand man returned, to shore there were only the two men, on board recently. This, witness, claims to have seen one of the men in East Iceland, decades, later working, on electricity, lines weird. That you wouldn't just if you saw someone carrying. A weekend de man who looked at you and said remember me you. Wouldn't maybe. Yeah. Get, the police on the horn maybe do a little hey, I saw a guy get carried off it looked like he couldn't walk he said remember me may want to look into it maybe like well we don't have a missing task force so so. Do you later you later. Hang, it up and that's that yeah, while these mysterious disappearances took, place over 40 years ago we can draw important, lessons, for today in the way the cases were handled while. It might be tempting to try and cram facts to fit a convenient, theory truth, works the other way around had. Authorities, been better equipped to discover the facts of the case perhaps, we'd know what happened to Goodwin there and get Vener but, because of a rush to find a convenient, solution these. Icelandic, disappearances. Remain. Unsolved. It's. Not often, that I have almost, zero hope. That. This one a case is going to be solved I just I feel that way about most cases I'm really a bit, there's, a small glimmer but this one it just I just don't think so and for, the record. Iceland. Is. Breathtaking. And you should really consider heading, out there men hard sell after this story but yeah I'll check it out I met an unsolved, fan there oh really, yeah so shout out to all our murder. Heads in. Iceland. You thought you were doing so well we're caller. Alright. See you next week everybody.

Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network will you guys ever do the Madeleine McCann story?

#PostMortem It's 100% False Memory Syndrome. About the missing people... 1. Maybe some psycho took/killed them... He(or she) had the perfect location... It's not hard to dispose bodies especially in Iceland. 2. They just left without anyone. 3. Aliens... They erased their memories and it resurfaced when they were stressed the hell out. 4. It's the Watcher. Thoughts? #Shaniac (until given concrete proof of ghouls/demons) #Boogara (when it comes to respecting locations)

Will you be adding BuzzFeed Unsolved Rubber Sheets merch? LMAO #Shaneyoudefinitelyboughtthem #iLOVEtheghoulboys

My largest takeaway from this episode is that Ryan is very upset Shane did not take him to Iceland. #ghoulboysontour #postmortem #ryantist

Do some indian mysteries.

#postmortem: Are Gudmundur and Geirfinnur related, since they have the same surname? Maybe the murderer hates Einarssons. I have a theory that maybe that other unidentified man with Gudmundur may have something to do with his murder. Geirfinnur, on the other hand, could be involved in organized crime or had some bad blood with that other dude on the call. I really hope this makes it to the postmortem. LOvE yOu GuYS SoOo MuCH

#postmortem Do the Max Headroom Hijacking

what if they just like decided to leave town and never come back like tho if shane says iceland was hella pretty why would they leave even, or lmao was this aliens HAHHAHAHHA

Hi Shane, I'm planning a trip to Iceland atm, what is the one thing you think people absolutely HAVE to do/see there? Great show guys, love from the Netherlands.

It was aliens #buzzfeedsolved

Do u have any idea what could be the motif for the murder? Seems kinda hanging there

Maybe... Just maybe... It was aliens...

Ryan going through all that trouble to try and say those names right but still didnt say them right

#postmortem Who did Ryan interview for the pronunciations of the Icelandic names?

#postmortem : the most important thing in were isn't the "what happened to them?" Is what kind of friends see the other friend on the side of the road very (VERY) DRUNK, asking for a ride and DIDN'T STOP to give the so called FRIEND a ride? Oh boy, oh boy, best friend's forever am I right? Love from Portugal!

#postmortem ; is the rate of disappearances in Iceland compared to the population significantly higher than in other countries? If so, even considering the hostile terrain (which locals would surely be familiar with) isn’t that a bit suspicious? From a psychology/sociology perspective if not a criminal one?

How long did it take to learn to pronounce these names

What if shane's mother thought that shane is a bedwetter HAHAHAHA

Shane why didn't you buy the rubber sheets?

How did you guys found this case? btw love you guyss!

When will you release unsolved supernatural season 6? I loved those videos

Why does Ryan look so grossed out when Shane says he went to Copenhagen? Is he jealous? Disgusted? Annoyed? All of the above? Explain

For Postmortem. Why do you think that In September 2018, Iceland's Supreme Court acquitted the five men jailed for the murders but Erla Bolladottir was not acquitted. What more evidence did they have on her that they didn’t have on the others? #postmortem #ghostarenotreal? #oratethey?

Ryan can you gives us a pie fact?

Pie fact?

if you two were in the places of the investigators what would you have done differently? love u guys!

I like how Rayn didn't say that it was aliens

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network when is ryan gonna play us a power ballad on his guitar? #wet

#PostMortem Ryan, how much time did you spend practicing these names and did you have a tutor? (Proudly Boogara!)

Postmortem: What happened to Erla's baby while she was in solitary? #concerned #worryingpolicepractises #postmortem

For post Mortem: who was looking after the baby? It was eleven months old and it’s parents where in solitary confinement. Was he or she ok?

Ryan can pronounce all they Icelandic names but can’t pronounce February

FOR THE POST MORTEM what happened to that baby? #loveyouboth

Next episode Denmark? Creepy country you will never know when a lego brick will hit your head!

BUZZFEED UNSOLVED - TRUE CRIME SEASON X • EPISODE X The Mystery Surrounding the Death of Adolf Hitler plz do hitler #postmortem

Conclusions of this case: don't torture people. Ps : do a episode on Madeleine McCain! #shaniac #respectforBoogarasthough

Question for post-mortem: could they be part of a spy group because none of them made any sense with their confessions as they were all different, and they wouldnt confess immediately meaning they couldn’t remember or were hiding something?

Could you cover Jhonny gosh please

I am a fan from iceland, I loved this episode... my grandfather knew Sævar ciesielski and used to help him with some stuff and Sævar always pay'd him with paintings he painted himself, ... Another fun fact Guðjón Skarp­héðins­son was the priest at my baptism. :D - can you guys do a episode about disappearances in iceland,like you say there are a lot of them. or take a trip to iceland and do some supernatural stuff, there is a lot of that s**t here :D #postmortem

for Postmortem: is it possible that both of them somehow left the country undetected? Also how come there were no theories about them having the same last name? I'd like to believe that neither one was murdered, but both of them having the same last name and vanishing in such a small amount of time is pretty sketchy. Love you guys

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Ryan, how hard was it to pronounce the words and names?

for the post mortem: what i’ve elra, did the murder, but all those iceland guys helped her? and now she is turning the tables and she is accusing the guys? and what did ricky thought of this case?

#postmortem who are the 2 friends that saw Gudmundur when he was hitchhiking ? And why did they not stop to bring him home (since he was drunk)?

For Post Mortem: What if the guys just straight up left the country innocently and nobody knew about it. Or, what if they never existed at all and they were used to create a moral panic of sorts, or they were just ghosts

Must be the watcher

Shane, are you sure you didn't get the rubber sheets?

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Speaking of missing people, have you guys heard of Alaska's Bermuda Triangle? There's also a BigFoot type creature there called the Kushtaka in local lore. Would be cool to see you guys there on location! Love u guys!#ShaneRyan#bestBromanceEver

Can you guys do the Arushi Talwar case?

Why the clay head could they not have just drawn the face and put posters out instead of walking about with a disembodied head #postmortem

Nice pronunciation Bois

If any of these people were mudered they could have just put their bodys in the middle of nowhere in iceland as theres no people to find them outside of the capital

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network #postmortem how would you do in solitary confinement

Maybe that witness who came forward decades later didn’t go to the police straight away because they didn’t want to be put in solitary confinement too?

#Postmortem Geirfinnur sounded like he knew the person on the other line of the call he got right before he went missing. Could that have implied maybe it wasn't just a disappearance?

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network @Post Mortem how long did it took Ryan to practice the names

Ryan, just curious, were you in a fraternity in college? If so, which one? #Boogara

Why are they not searching for a missing person/body at all?

Will you guys do more recent unloved episodes this season?

did the iceland police ever get any fallout for how they treated the suspects?

So, uuuhhh maybe Ricky Goldsworth killed them! The proof is just right there! He doesn’t even know when he goes all psycho. Every case closed it was all Ricky.

This should just be renamed Shane talks about Iceland for 20 minutes

Maybe the two vanished men were lovers and ran away together. They could have chosen to “disappear” at different times in order to avoid suspicion

#PostMorthem Why does Saevar in Solitary the whole time? How come that Saevar in the Solitary?

For Postmortem: Just a theory, I may be way off the mark. Could the Icelandic Police have been trying to cover up for someone incumbent/influential? They could have been bribed into putting the blood of these two men onto some plebeian's hands. Had these six actually been responsible for these murders, the Police should have asked them where the bodies were and tried to search for it. The fact that the Police seemed so quick to target these people seem like they were desperate to close the case due to both public and political pressure. Love you guys! Keep doing what you're doing.

Do MH370 case

When is ruining history coming back???? It was the BEST show ever. #postmortem

Question for post Mortem: Ryan how can you even pronounce these names. But not pronounce "February" anyway love you guys! #shaniac

I'm you #1 Murder Head!

Wait, WHY would the "remember me" witness, knowing all those people were arrested and sentenced to prison, wait so LONG to come forward?

For the postmortem: yeesh, this one was rough. coerced confessions are one of the grosser abuses of power police have and do utilize against civilian suspects a disturbing amount, even now. God its disgusting that theres places where solitary confinement is even legal anymore, its medieval. but, onto the question i wanted to ask: Ryan, while researching this case, did you find any interesting theories on why disappearances were/are so common in Iceland?

For post mortem :- It is possible that the guys must've just ran away or just wanted to be wiped of the face of the earth. The bodies were never found.

Maybe the two cases are not related or it was done by two different groups of people or people??

For the Post Mortem: I've got two theories off the top of my head. 1. What if someone hired a hitman/hitmen over the phone to kill Geirfinnur Einarsson but they got the Gudmundur Einarsson instead because their names were so similar and the call had bad signal? 2. Based on the fact that so many people went missing over the years, what if a supernatural/cult/mob conspiracy was at work in Iceland? It would be the perfect place if any aliens wanted to do some abducting or a secret organisation based there that would make anyone who found out about them disappear. Surprised Ryan didn't bring up any of those types of theories. Love you guys!!

For the post-mortem: Did the Icelandic police determine a motive for the murders?

#postmortem What if these 2 guys just wanted to disappear...

So.. Umm.. This might be silly but I wanted to ask.. What happened to the baby of erla because erla was imprisoned for more than 200 days and i think also sentenced.. I was wondering what happened to that baby?

how is ryan able to pronounce these complicated names but he still can’t say january correctly? #ROASTmortem

WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO THE BABY

OMG, you guys. Humor me and watch your video with the "auto generated" closed captions on! It is so confused with the names, I'm feeling very evil for cracking up over a persons disappearance. I'm frikkin dying!

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network - would you do an experiment to see how long the average Joe could go through solitary and/ or interrogation before giving up?

How long did Ryan even practice those names bruh?

Buzzfeed Unsolved Network: I have a question (For Ryan and Shane) Why does Saevar in Solitary the whole time? How come that Saevar in the Solitary?

Why does Saevar in Solitary the whole time? How come that Saevar in the Solitary?

I'm just sad Aliens weren't involved in this one #Shaniacs and #Boogaraforlife #unite !

What happened to the baby while their parents were in solitary?

k this is police abuse right here.

Post Mortem: okay but like why didnt the police set up a missing person department if people disappear a lot there, it dont add up boys.

hello Shane and Ryan, i gotta ask, when will you guys make something about the fake moon land of NASA? you have to know its an urban legend, I'm just curious do you guys really think the legend is true or a fake or another option why did NASA faked it? I know the two of you are smart.

+Aníta Rós Would love to visit Iceland! See the volcanoes

Those dudes were clearly carried off by elves.

I just wanted to ask Ryan, how do you find these crimes or mysteries? Because some of them are unknown to me and I research crimes and stories sometimes and I've never heard of some of the stories you've discussed about.

#postmortem: Shane, do you plan on going back it Iceland? Hope you don't go (wheeze) missing. #ghoulboysrock

Was their not a system of bail in Iceland?

i wish you would've used the real mugshots of the people; the mugshots are so 70s it's awesome. they're pretty easy to find too so idk why you didnt...

Ryan: LITERALLY no one: Shane: Iceland is the BEST .

Hey Iceland, quick question. What the hell?

Well, all hail the watcher I guess

Throw in Thanos in solitary confinement for too long and he will confess to Killing half the univ....oh wait

How come NOBODY is commenting on the voice crack at 10:15? Ryan says qUOte

for post mortem : so his friends drive by, see their friend wanting a ride, clearly drunk, and with another drunk stranger that they don't know and they just drove by him? didn't stop? it makes sense that he was trying to get home but eventually drunkenly passed out, but why not try and get home again when he was sober? Also i don't really see the connection to the two cases, they were so far apart, and it may be common for people to have the same last name if the population was so small. (also ghosts are real)

you should really pracice your pronounciation..... just a little bit. cus this is kind of embarrassing

Interesting that both missing men had the name G. Einarsson

watcher: iT wAs aLL mY dOiNg

No-one: Shane: so my trip to Iceland... Did I mention I've been to ice land?

#postmortem This just means that erla and the others are just making up stories since they've been in solitary for too long, so there's a chance that their statements are not true.. Plus if they did murder the two what could be their motive?? I mean even if they're are criminals doing frauds they should still have a motive for killing the 2 righ :')

Gaman að sjá þá taka Guðmundar- og Geirfinnsmálið fyrir

Love the room discussion

This Luks like a UFO abduction

Maybe they do ......one person is sacrificed to the volcano God's every year

Well atleast the country's name is pronouncable

More paranormal videos please!

#postmortem . After Erla and Gudjon got out of the prison they were asked questions. According to Erla and Gudjon they did not execute the crime. In fact they were blackmailed by the policemen to give the statement. Erla was blackmailed about her child.. I love you guys and keep up the good work...

i wish you'd cover the finnish bodom lake murders or the case of anneli auer, simply because i'm finnish

This is a reason torture don't work, you don't get out the truth you get out what ever the interrogator want to hear. So what USA do to the terrorist suspects in Gitmo will not get any result more then material which can be used as anti US propaganda by the enemies and to keep the sheep home calm.

I believe the term you were looking for is "BUNheads", or "BUNies". :-D

Can you guys do a buzzfeed unsolved on the disappearance of Madeline McCann?

Candles... WTF ?!?!? CANDLES ?!?! I'm surprised Shane said NOTHING XD

Ryan did such a good job not butchering those names

You guys should follow the Icelandic police on instagram... @logreglan

I would love you guys to do a episode on the cab mystery in Norway. In norwegian: Drosje mysteriet. A really interesting case.

It is still unsolved.

When they mentioned the police making a clay face model and showing it to everyone, did anyone else remember that weird detective that carried around a mask replica of the boy in the box? #Shaniac #StillLoveYouThoRyan

I hope Iceland has a proper/legitimate government to handle these sort of cases now, God only knows what 'Innocent People' have went through in 'Iceland's Quest for Justice' since their Government was established.

they have the same last names because in Iceland your last name is your father’s name+daughter/son

Coming soon: The Purge: ICELAND "Once a year, we do a MURDER!" *DUN, DUN, DUNNNN*

No one: Literally nobody: Shane: HEY Y'ALL, wanna hear about my trip to ICELAND??

KSJSKSKS THE PRONUNCIATION OF THE ICELANDIC WORDS HAVE ME ROLLING

Since Shane likes Copenhagen they should do an episode here

What if those 2 people just decided to leave Iceland without telling anyone?

shane looks stoned this episode

Idea that probably isn't right: What if the guys that went missing were lovers and they thought 'hey if we go away at different times nobody think we're together' and all the people who were questioned we're in innocent and the people that man saw being dragged to a boat was just drunk and his friends were having some fun with him This definitely isn't right but it's fun to think the that the two guys who disappeared just sitting on their couch and seeing this on the news and begin like we effed up

I like your beard ryan! Very nice! Great video!!!! HAHA

Oh my god. Props to Ryan for pronouncing the names. I would probably mess them up badly

Heck yeah

Wow back to back? It's not even my birthday

you guys should make an episode about the case of a child's death in sweden in 1998 called the "kevin case", saw a documentary on it once, seemed pretty interesting

Now I know if you put someone in a cell,.. they would be a polite person..................

For Post Mortem: Are we officially called "Murderheads" from now on LOL

For the postmortem comrades, if they confessed the murder, didn’t the investigators ask them about the location of the bodies?

For Post Mortem: To both Shane and Ryan, which theory do you believe is the most likely to have happened?

Hey who's the father of Erlas baby? I have theory that the guy who was missing may have slept in Erlas bed because they were living together or Erla was he's sidechick. Maybe he got her pregnant. Maybe she hated him or didn't want anyone to find out and told her friends who kidnapped the guy by wrapping him in their bedsheets, throwed him in to a truck and then killed him. That would explain the missing bedsheet and the motive if this case is even real. What do you think Shane and Ryan? #postmortem #loveyourshow #beenheresinsethefirstepisode

The only thing suspicious here is Ryans hair

Im from Iceland omg omg omg

I swear I just was there!

So, how f***ed up is it for the police to not only keep a (potentially innocent) mother locked up away from her 11 month old baby, but to keep her imprisoned well into the 2019? On what grounds?? Suppose she was involved in the murder alongside men. Are you telling me her involvement was more severe than the mens to warrant her being the only one remaining in prison? With no evidence, no body, no murder weapon and a bunch of confessions received under torture (yes, torture. how else do you call this shitshow?) are you telling me the police has solid ground for treating her like that? I hate to throw the word around, but what the hell is this, if not a severe case of sexism? The police needed a scapegoat to cover their incopetency and they got one. The judical system of Iceland is FUCKED UP and I am disgusted with their conduct.

Omg omg im from reykjavik!

Goddamn iceland has a pretty facist police system

Why do they both seem so tired this episode

Who puts the "(wheeze)" every time before the guy laughs? Can't even hear it haha

You should do a video on the Birmingham (UK) pub bombings. The IRA claimed responsibility but the men imprisoned were found to be wrongly convicted and released after 16 years in prison. The police were found to have used wrongful methods in investigating the bombings and there is some suggestion of a cover-up. The investigation has been reopened an closed a few times since then and is currently open

i crylaughed through this episode, ryans pronounciation is so good lmao

There's an amazing documentary on Netflix about this!

okay but why was that dude stealing candles??

There were only 220k people in a whole country? There’s 8 million people just in my city lol

these poor bastards, jfc. put investigators in solitary before they're allowed to put anyone else in

Whether they killed somebody or not, I think anyone put in solitary confinement for days would confess to anything just to get out of that misery.

solitary confinement is torture. it has long term psychological and physiological effects like depression, psychosis, self-harm, suicide, and so so, the mental pain that people in solitary are subjected to is inhumane. we're only just beginning to understand how harmful it really is to the human brain. there is some evidence that even a short stay in solitary can lead to the prisoner being unable to differentiate what is inside and what is outside their own body. solitary confinement is often used for minor offences in prison as well, such as stealing food,. "juveniles are held in solitary confinement in jails and prisons across the United States, often for days, weeks, months, or even years" and their psyche is permanently damaged due to this. so please take a moment to donate to Chelsea Manning's legal fund. she has just been released into GenPop after 28 days in solitary and is being held in prison indefinitely, all for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury.

I’ve good a good case, what about the charge of the light brigade in the Boer war in why it went horribly wrong. Also you could do what William Morris said when he was taking his note or something to the battlefield.

Shane, I know I can just google this, but can you explain what the heck "rubber sheets" are? I feel like it is self explanatory but I still want to hear it from you.

the way they pronounce the names are funny

Listen I love then but I can’t stop cringing on how they pronounce everything

#postmortem What if these people are victims of human trafficking? Usually when a person gets trafficked, people can't find them or any information at all. Iceland is not very populated so maybe the traffickers take that as an opportunity and steal people from there knowing that nobody will look for them since it's a part of their culture.

I couldn't watch this to the end. Too frustrating and deeply disturbing.

My dad wanted me to buy a rubber shirt

Never trust nice quaint places. There’s always some messed up secret like lunatic police torturing their citizens and eliciting false confessions

shane talks about iceland the way rich girls talk about europe after taking a semester abroad

"getting kinda comical" I'd have said something more like horrifying, disgusting, extreme, or inhumane. But sure.

For the #Postmortem : alright be honest y'all how many shane's vacation stories did you cut from this episode

For postmortem Since Iceland's population was small back then, could news be spread that the two guys were missing. Perhaps this caused police and investigators to be put under pressure since the crime wasn't very common. They probably wanted someone to confess to the supposed "murder" of the two guys. This could be similar to what the police did to Frank Dolezal which was forcing him to confess. The solitude maybe had a toll on the suspects minds there fore this could have made some if them think they were in fact part of the crime. This maybe was all done to let the public be at ease. #boogara #shaniac (both great)

For #postmortem do you guys think it's possible the police were involved with the two disappearances/ murders? That would explain why they were just so damn desperate to frame someone.

the names are killing me

They dont have a search team but a crap ton of solitary confinement.

This wasn’t the best of all of the episodes the boys do but they are always entertaining. Seems like just a horrendous indictment of Iceland’s policing abilities in the 70’s. Who wouldn’t question that kind of treatment those people were getting?

maybe the 2 victims just ran away together and the whole boat situation was staged

I feel so bad for Ryan who has to pronounce all of the icelandic words

Lol iceland...we dont have a sketch artist we only have Gunther who plays with clay.

I like turtles

Cant go missing on an island.

When the half Hispanic speaks better icelandic than spanish.

Can you look at the Enfield Haunting outside of London - so fascinating and interesting!

19:10 as in, like, coco?

Is it possible that aliens were responsible for both disappearances, which would explain why no bodies were discovered, as they were taken aboard. And maybe the police only convicted those people, as to cover up for the aliens and not spread fear among the population of iceland??

If theory one is correct that they all murdered the 2 men how come, they stayed in in prison that long?

*gasp*

You have to make a Madeline McCann one, only you guys can solve it

I think you should do an investigation about the Stockholm syndrome

You should do the "Sacramento Vampire murders"

these uploads are so chaotic lmao get your schedules right

2:36 that's what she said

it's nice to have a case from Iceland since I am from Iceland.

10:14 that voice crack from Ryan lmao

Pls do olof palme

If Iceland has so many people who disappear, isn’t it possible one or both of them just left the country? Saevar and Erla just dipped over to Denmark, what’s to say that one of the victims didn’t do the same?

What happened to the child?

Why would she call it a NIGHTMARE and then The police are like “are you sure it wasn’t a nightmare.” But if she woke up from the dream than wouldn’t that make sense that she was asleep?

+Bloody Scourge He's a legend

You guys said that crime was very uncommon so there wasn’t a special government bodies tasked with finding missing people, but then said missing people cases were very common in iceland. If missing people were common, then why was there no missing people government body? (Sketchy part ahead) maybe the government did something with all those people, and then the population started to get suspicious and demanding investigations and answers, so the government just made these random people confess so the public would be satisfied and be quiet again.

I love that this episode had captions available! It helps a lot your international, not-so-fluent-in-english fans and deaf friends!

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network if all suspects were kept isolated and separated, how their confessions weren’t wildly different from each other?

Can you do the Justice for Garrett case from Potsdam NY?

for the #postmortem: is it possible that the victims could've been taken/eaten by the local wildlife?

Its amazing, he didn't say aliens

For Post Mortem: So what was going on with the baby while they were in confinement? You said that he was left at home but with who? He couldn't possibly be at home alone?

If you do go to Iceland you can take my dog she’s trained in Human remains detection.

Geirfinnur is my grandmothers brother. Youre talking about my family. I feel weird

I have a question: do we ever know what happened to Saevar and Erla’s baby? I can’t imagine how difficult that must’ve been for Erla to be away from her child as much as she was. I would imagine that it’s important for a mother and child to bond soon after birth (I’m no expert, so correct me if I’m wrong), and she couldn’t even do that because she was stuck in solitary confinement for a crime she might not have committed. Ps love you guys! #boogara

For Postmortem: I don’t think they actually killed anyone. It can take up to three hours to convince a person they committed a crime that they didn’t actually do and the fact it took them up to and more than 700 days to get some of the confessions makes me think that they weren’t the actual killers and that it was somebody else. Alternatively, they missing guys could have been embroiled in some shady stuff and just ran away on their own accord knowing they wouldn’t be found. Great job on the pronounciations btw Ryan and thanks for the motivation to go to Iceland Shane

What the heck was wrong with those police officers? Using dreams as evidence and “helping” people to remember things by mentally torturing them with solitary confinement sounds like a bit much. Also, somebody please make a compilation of all the times Ryan has said “quote” and “unquote”.

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network Where was Erla’s baby during this whole ordeal?

There is also a realistic theory that Guðmundur wasn't murdered but just stumbled somewhere drunk and died from the cold weather. There has also been speculation that Geirfinnur's weird phone call might have been about a drug deal or even a gay hookup as him and his wife apparently didn't have a happy marriage. He might either have run off with or been murdered by the person he went to meet.

So nobody asked this people why did they murder those guys?

It's not a question but they don't share the same last name they share the same father's name The last name of a male Icelanders usually ends in the suffix -son (“son”) and that of female Icelanders in -dóttir (“daughter”)

deerish s

In what way was Erla’s connection to the victim(s)? She said she had gone out clubbing and seen one of the victims on the night of the murder... were there ever any alibis surrounding that claim?

Love this series so much ngl

Is it possible that there was a hit out for someone with a name beginning with G and a surname of Einarsson? The hitman might have mistaken Gudmunder for Geirfinnur as it is very unlikely that two men with similar names would go missing months apart. Also, did detectives follow up on Geirfinnur's wife's lead?

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network maybe it was frostbite or hyperthermia

these names r weird

Is there any point commenting what unsolved case I would like to see next? Because I have mentioned the Villisca axe murders on several of your videos guys. This would be a good one for either Unsolved or Supernatural. Please do it.

Maybe you could even do some kind of crossover.

It's the hidden people

I hope they know that the surname system here is totally different from other countries. We have our fathers name + either son if you’re a guy or dóttir if you’re a girl. So the two guys just a had dads with the same name.

No motive to kill?

#postmortem Do u guys know about the Danish ubout case? U should check that out!

This was great, but i just couldn't stop laughing about the name pronunciation!!

My cat selected this video and woke me up lol

Bolladóttir means mug doughter

I'm from Iceland and I just wanna ask are icelandic names THAT hard to say? Skskjs I'm laughing at Geirfinnur

As an Icelandic person this is so bad pronouncing

OMFG the 10 days in a room challenge ☠☠☠☠

Reno!!

From Iceland

Be a Boss! Drive for lyft and earn your dreams! Use code ARRIONE73916 Lyft.com

You’re supposed to pronounce Guðmundur like Guth-mundur.

I find their pronunciations so funny btw

Pleeeeeeeeeeease do the westall alien sightings in australia pleeeeeeeeease

Why didn't police just ask about Bodies and where they pot them ??

You should do the Madeline McCann case

She said, ''maybe" and they were like "Oh yeah thats the green light baby. Fire up that room again." You put that woman in solitary confinement for some more time and She'll confess to the goddamn chicago fire.

It is basically police torture

Lol Im from Copenhagen❤️❤️

yeah denmark! no really denmark is boring, and weird we don't really have anything, but some citys are really pretty, i guess. but anyways great video:) it's rare to hear the word denmark from youtubers who aren't from denmark. i love murderer mysteries and well just mysterires.

the picture used for Saever looks like the actor Carl Martin Eggesbo, from the Norwegian show Skam.

Plz do a video on Nonna's pizzeria

Geirfinnur was not watching tv with his friend and his son did hear the words not his wife

Perhaps the cops did it

Guðmundur and geirfinnur case gudmundur was born 1955 and geirfinnur 1942

Great Video as always.For any of you wondering this stuff works.

okay but americans badly pronouncing icelandic names is now my favorite thing ever

she did it and got the loved one back

Number 15. Reykjavik.

Icelandic Police: You have done the crime or not WE WILL GET THE CONFESSION OUT OF YOU! Shane: I have been to Iceland, beautiful place, you should definitely go there..

So... did they ever looked for bodies Or like personal items?

You can go on Netflix and watch “Out if thin air” and see this case explained with more details and also photos. Enjoy

Since everyone's already said everything I wanted to say about this crime, all I'm going go comment on is how amazed I am by Ryan's pronounciations. I'm not Icelandic, so I know how hard it is to pronounce. Props to you Ryan for not biting your tongue all the time.

It’s solitary confinement because no one else is in prison in Iceland

Bodomjärvi killings wanted for next episode! (:

How about on Jeff the killer??

Please do a episode on barmuda triangle's mysterious disapperances

Do you think they should re open the case and examine the minds of these people with full psychological evaluations

I cringe so much when they say town names & names

I’m icelandic so i find it really funny to hear ryan say those icelandic names. Btw we in iceland the prisons in iceland are basically like a hotel, prisoners get there own room with a bathroom and a tv. We actually dont have a jail, so the people that they are questioning are in solitary confinement but its not like in the us. They get books and a tv so its not the complete hell that your imagining.

I hate that manequin

For the 7.6327% who sees this... Now you have great luck forever :) Like to activate

This comment belongs in permanent solitary confinement

suspect: h— icelandic police: solitary confinement

Stolen comment

Solitary confinement shouldn't exist.

Didn't they have defense attorneys? Didn't the court even take the way the confessions were obtained into consideration?

Okay I'm Icelandic and I'm impressed in how well you can pronounce the names

Everybody is seeming to forget that this took place in the 1970s. The US justice system was doing things just as bad as this back then

I love when you do cases like this that don’t get as much coverage as others. It gives a sense of being original

Have You seen My new YouTube channel Click here to view my New YouTube channel

#postmortem Is anyone else confused about what erla's part in the crime was

Hey, Buzzfeed Unsolved! Since you’re talking about a Nordic case, can you maybe talk about some Swedish cases? Like the confessions of Thomas Quick, the Da Costa case or the vampire murder?

There was once some people That fell in to the ocean

You said Reykjavík wrong On icelandic i would say... Þú sagðir Reykjavík vitlaust... Not Saevar its Sævar

I really appreciate you learning how to pronounce icelandic for this episode, Ryan!

This series really fell off. It’s not scary like it used to be

#3 on trending bois

Don’t look at my username

I love this song Www.ratanakiricambodia.wordpress.com

So they tortured her into a confession? Edit: they tortured everybody!

Iceland is great. I just want to see my name on the Eve Wall in Reykjavik. I'll be happy and glad to get away from the ice then.

#postmortem what happened to Erla's baby?

Please do a video on Aarushi murder case in India.

Pls watch this. Have a nice day. :) https://youtu.be/yEAHKVc8PYc

I like the cut of his jib.

Im danish

https://youtu.be/eKS7FtC80vM Watch this

the pronounciation is frickin horrible

Do Madeleine McCann

When you realise you could have visited Iceland around the same time as Shane

Shane looks high

completely unrelated, but ya'll should go through the shanghai tunnels in portland oregon

Two men disappeared Solitary confinement cleared No matter how long you lock her Should've gone with the lie detector

Guys please do an episode on Robert Durst- he’s been accused of three murders and been found guilty of one of them (thorough self-defence). There’s been several films about him including “All good things” with Ryan Gosling and a documentary which details a lot about him with a possible accidental confession at the end of the series.

Im from Iceland, born and raised and honestly none of this is surprising

I love you guys but this was HARD to watch, the pronunciations were so bad

Please do a Madeleine Mccann one!

this sounds like it could be a darker plot for hot fuzz

Sup people Icelander here

Shane : *been to Iceland before* Shane : You know, I'm somewhat of a genius about Iceland

Guys, come on over and do some stories "on-site". We have some really good stuff for you; ghosts, trolls, other mysteries and much more. Ryan, you did the names spot-on, have a try with Eyjafjallajökull, you could crack it. See'ya :)

yikes

Nobody: Shane: oooooh I went there it’s beautiful

Can we just appreciate Ryan’s pronunciations of these names

please try to cover about the infamous Poughkeepsie Tapes

"about once a year we do a murder" maybe full outlawry is still a thing?

To shay

https://youtu.be/69TEtVE84AQ

Hell yeah Reno for life. Finally someone notice us.

Murder heads...I like the sound of that

You're welcome for #2 on trending.

Icelandic police:oh yeah we'll lock the guy up in solitary just until he confesses A few days later.. Suspect:I confess! so can I get out of solitary now? Police:NO!MORE SOLITARY!MUAHAHAHAAAAAAHA!

suspect: yes police: solitary confinement!

100/100 to Ryan for pronouncing Hafnarfjörður right!

As soon as he said albert I was like ALBERTSSTUFF NO

You guys should do the mystery of Harris Burdick!!

You guys should look into the Mexican JFK assassination equivalent, the Luis Donaldo Colosio murder, and it actually happened close to you guys, in Tijuana Baja California, the story is insane!

For Postmortem: So do you guys think this is a situation where the entirety of Iceland is in on some kind of elaborate cult and they do a couple of crimes a year, just to make themselves look normal, but as soon as there’s a crime that’s not orchestrated by themselves, they go berserk and play the blame game? Love you guys!!! #shaniac #boogarasarecool

To be quite honest, I wanna visit Iceland after all of Shane's babbling...

for post mortem: can police force people to remember something that isn't true. Was it forced confabulation?

PLEASE GO TO SAN FRANCISO AND TOUR THE ALCATRAZ WHICH IS THE INFAMOUS PRISON!!!

im literally dying of curiosity thinking where did they go really

4 episodes a week?!! this is my lucky week!!

Confession reminds me of cersie's confession

wait... they have the same last name.. they aren't related?

of course they aren’t related! Icelandic last names don’t work the same way ours do! they’re patronymic, meaning that they’re named after their father. for ex. Markus Persson aka Notch, son of Pers. etc

Yah I remember this story.

I love the pronunciations in this episode

Your BEST comparison of population is from Reno from 9 years ago??

So wait if disappearances were so common. What made those 2 disappearances so special ??

All hail The Watcher!

0:16 is Shane's hand bleeding?? :(

They all want to copy the american serial killers

IceLandic people: saw two men carrying a weakened man Also IceLandic people: oh, okay

4 videos in 1 week and it's my birth week ! thanks for the gift, watcher ! ALL HAIL THE WATCHER :--D

I think it was Ghufnremdr or Gjurfinrdhggt.

Why are they treating this like some kind of sitcom?

Hey my name is Mummi and I live here in Iceland. Please don’t be making jokes about the guðmundur disappearing it’s a very sensitive story here in iceland

For postmortem: What if the icelandic police did the murder of the two or someone involve in there? Maybe that's why they keep forcing a confession from them despite their blurry memories of the said murder to cover up their own sht?

all hail the watcher, baby

hahahahahah, the way you guys pronounce names an places :D

Do a true crime on the disappearance of madeleine mccann

Three words: in a grove

Does it bother no one that the dialogue does not use capital letters at all?

For the #PostMortem : I guess it's a matter of perspective, but do you think people in Iceland could have been "disappeared" for The Greater Good??? Shane going on about Iceland's renowned beauty and the kindness of its population, and then you tell us it's a place where, while murders are very rare, disappearances are not, hmmm... just makes you wonder. (PS: love you guys

Could you do the mystery of Sweeney Todd??

nobody: literally nobody: shane: so when i was in iceland—

You didn't butcher their Icelandic names, which is the hardest in the world to pronounce... good job!

Hwaseong Serial Murders need some investigating. This and the Frog Boys Incident.

"I can't remember that night... OMG I MUST BE A MURDERER!"

A clear violation of human rights..

Ever thought of doing Bear Brook Murders, or the Allenstown four?

Ciesielski is not Icelandic. The surnames for girls in Iceland end with dottr.For guys it''s son

Wait, so people go missing all the time in Iceland and yet they didn't have a missing person task force set up? How does that make sense?

Some “fun” facts related to this case: Erla at one point implicated her brother and he still doesn’t talk to her to this day. Geirfinnur had a brother who went missing a year before Geirfinnur was born, his brother was 3 at the time. My grandparents were friends with Geirfinnur and I think they were actually questioned by the cops at the time of his disappearance, I wish I could ask them about it because this case has always fascinated me but my dad has forbidden me from doing that

I'm waiting for the Madeline McCann case. boys hurry up on that one

So people just casually forget that they murdered someone?

You guys should do murder mysteries of Asia!! It would be really cool!!

get you a guy who looks at you like shane when he looks at ryan waiting for his reaction after cracking a joke.

@postmortem #post mortem what if the two men on the road were einarsson and einarsson? Maybe they met in the bar, drank a little and both had the idea of leaving reykjavik?

Aside from you know, all the murdering and pillaging, this is not a proud Icelandic moment...

The disappearance of Boris Weisfeiler would make a good video, many possible explanations there.

Can you make an episode on The Dyatlov pass?

Im in Iceland an crimes happen like 2 time a year

Icelandic names are not linear, they are mostly patronymic, so Einarsson means son of Einar, therefore both men had a father who was named Einar, so if Gudmundur had lived and had a son his surname would be Gudmundurson, if he had a girl her surname would Gudmundurdottir

Same thing in GITMO, innocent kids are tortured by sadists who get off on inflicting pain, into telling lies, confessing to things they didn't do. SHUT IT DOWN,

This is more horrifying than the actual crimes, I hope they actually committed the crimes because if any of them were innocent that would be horrible

Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray Maura Murray please

Honestly just here for the comments section

So, big props for you trying to say their names.... I'm wondering how many takes you had to do because It's so hard to follow with those names sometimes!

So you're telling me, disappearances were incredibly common in Iceland, yet they felt no need to have a missing persons task force? Okay...

I love how the ad I had on the video was about visiting iceland . Yes advertisements, I'll go to Iceland just for the fields and the decomposing bodies!

Its 12 am.. woops

WOOOOO MORE TRUE CRIMES!

Ryan: pronounces Icelandic names perfectly Also ryan: stumbles off llorona

都挺好的

Bruh I just *_cant_* stop watching these

For the #postmortem, have you guys gotten your avengers endgame tickets yet? I heard people were selling them online for $2500 in LA! Wild

I knew it. Shane is too laid back. He's a pothead isn't he? Lol. #Ryaniac

You need to do a Madeline McCann episode

Shane : "I went on a trip to iceland last year" Shane : *arrived* Shane : AlL hAiL tHe WaTcHeR

All Hail The Watcher I Guess

They tryna be GMM

Finally these episodes are on trending

Me * never killed an ant * Police: solitary confinement Me: I killed Abraham Lincoln.

Dude this is sad the real criminals are the police officers for doing all these things to the suspects/ victims

Laying in bed eating salami live in life

What a boring episode

Can you investigate some school unsolved cases.

Its 2:00am

Hello BuzzFeed! I am a real true fan from Philippines, I've watched all of your uploaded videos including ghost hunts and Q and A's. I would just like to suggest that you cover the unsolved case here in Philippines about the mysterious case of Pepsi Paloma, an actress that died not knowing the real reason if she was raped or committed suicide. There was a song that a band wrote relating to the case but still no one knows the real reason. I'm looking forward to this. Thanks and More videos to come! :) All Hail the Watcher!

Witch-hunting

That was torture

Not many things can make me laugh after a 16 hour shift...you guys are two of the things

We don't have many murders here, just many missing people that have never been found.

2.3 million subs. 2.2 million views in two days. That's pretty sweet.

The *real* crime here is the physical and psychological torture of these six people.

I'm in love with Ryan.. he's probably straight :(

Entertaining-yet-vapid. Quintessential Buzzfeed. Dear Buzzfeed: Give up on political "journalism" and focus more on this type of content.

for post mortem: why then would there be no missing people task force if disappearances weren't uncommon and was even frequent at one point in their history

We have a dedicated Search and Rescue department that regularly works with the Police and Coast Guard but if we can't find someone then we just can't find them. We are a low populated country with more mountains, rivers, valleys, creeks, nooks and crannies than we can count. If you really wanna hide a body somewhere in the highlands or you fall into a crevice somewhere. The chances are you'll never be found. So top tip. If you wanna go mountain hiking somewhere then either go with a group of people or tell someone where exactly you're going and roughly when you'll be back.

What if the killer was someone in the police department. They could just be looking for scapegoats and force 'confessions' out of them to appease the court.

no one: literally no one: shane: *iceland story* All jokes aside, love you guys! & good job with the names, Ryan.

You should do conspiracies of 9/11

Iceland got some European ww2 names

Would love to see a video on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

#postmortem what ended up happening to eria bolladóttir's daughter? is she still alive? what are her thoughts on the case?

So wait you saw your friend trying to hatch a ride and you don’t stop...tf

You guys should do the Father’s Day Bank Massacre

ALL HAIL THE WATCHER

I think it's funny this came out the same day my psychology teacher started teaching about Pseudo memories (false memories) . The way a person may ask a question can make a big influence. Do you guys think there should have been justice for those days they were in solitary confinement? P.s I love you guys ! #postmortem

My closed caption couldn't even keep up with him

The Emmy goes to Ryan for killing saying the names of the people in this tale

No one: Icelandic police: *Solitary confinement*

But those names though

For post mortem: Do this guy SERIOUSLY not ask for a lawyer?!?!?!?! If he did the detectives would legally have to let him go. #AllHailTheWatcher

All said they killed someone #AllHailTheWatcher

The suspicios truth of Five Nights At Freddys?

As an Icelandic person, my favorite thing is listening to people trying to pronounce Icelandic names and places. There truly isn’t anything better.

They should do a video about the amityville haunting Who else agrees?

Can you make an investigation about 8 Feet Tall/ Hachishakusama?

“gonna turn iceland into greenland, baby” HAHAHAHAHA idk why but i’m laughing at this

Plays LOFI MUSIC RAPIDLY

oh, it was in the 1970s... makes sense

4:13

Can you please do the Dennis Martin case. It's incredibly unsettling and very suspicious, but more people need to know about it!

Do the "chiong sister case" next

GO TO CRYBABY BRIDGE

no one: literally not a single soul: shane: Have I mentioned that I went to Iceland???

Can you guys cover the Villisca Axe Murder House? I stayed the night at that house, and it is creepy as hell. It can be a True Crime/Supernatural crossover

Y’all need to cover the unsolved murders of Shane Stewart and Sally Mcnelly in San Angelo Texas!!! https://unsolved.com/gallery/sally-mcnelly-shane-stewart/

If you put him in solitary for 7 days he will confess to wearing womens underwear.

why the heck did they not just do the lie detector earlier? i'm pretty sure this entire thing would have been done in just a few months. smh disappointed at iceland 1975

Erlas baby has the same birthday as me

These names are so freaking long Idek who’s who

lmaaaooo same I've watched this video at least three times and I'm still confused because of all the names

Ayyyye shout out Reno

erla: *gets put in solitary confinement* erla: damn. all hail the watcher

They just agreed to the police hoping they will free them for their cooperation but all they got is solitary confinement. Solitary confinement begun making them think they are guilty.

“Gonna turn Iceland into Greenland!” Omg, lolololol!!!

Is anyone else thrown off with Ryan’s weird Iceland accent? Like it sounds like after saying the names for so long that he kind of developed the accent through the whole video lmao

All this False Memory Syndrome stuff reminds me of Brendan Dassey

#45 on trending street

Hey, there's this one really interesting case that I was hoping you could solve. Could you address why Ash never ages in Pokemon? I'm pretty sure it's one of the stranger mysteries.

All these foreign names are really confusing me

Please do the Australian Chamberlain "Dingo" case. It's unsolved and drags out really long with lots of potential theories, perfect for an episode.

Give Ryan an award for pronouncing these names lol

Next madeleine mccan

Did they ever think that it could’ve been someone just visiting the country? Btw I’m def a shaniac when it’s the true crime series but boogara for supernatural altho hey demons it’s your boy is hilarious!

Considering how many times Ryan's forced Shane into dark rooms for hours, I'm surprised he hasn't broken down and admitted ghosts are real. Jk, #shaniac for realz.

Next you should do the murder of Jonbenet Ramsey

Thank God I live in America

Anyone playing the buzzfeed drinking game.... with the amount of (wheezes) alone you're fucked lads

Yeah I'm pretty sure this is exactly why the whole "confessions taken from torture are invalid" is a thing. I don't believe any of these confessions are true, and they were all created in an attempt to get out of solitary confinement (something I would absolutely attempt suicide for after a long enough amount of time). The true horror story of this video is the inhumane cruelty of the Icelandic police force during this time, jfc.

i wanted to message you guys but i don’t know how!! YALL need to explore the myrtles plantation house in St.francisville louisiana. you can stay the night and it is veryyyyy haunted! i would love to see an episode of this!

You guys should do one on Gianni Versace's death and go to Florida to his home which is now a hotel!

Buzzfeed unsolved is the only good thing to ever come from buzzfeed

Ryan is so attractive to me

Y'all !!!!!!! Come to The Grand Hotel in Mackinaw Island Michigan!!! Literally so haunted and beautiful and scary plz come

Just another example of how police abuse of suspects can create false confessions. Hearing about cases like this is so frustrating, especially since police still use these practices. The solitary confinement bit is just terrifying tbh

HEY! Can y'all make a video on "The Secret: A Tresure Hunt." and test a solve for one of the gems! That would be awesome!!!

#postmortem: I think 'murderheads' is a bit strong. what about bunniez (buzzfeed unsolved... bunn-iez?)?

#postmortem #bunniez

My heart hurts for these people abused by the system, forever changed.

Pascualita.

Can we get an episode about the assassination of Gen. Antonio Luna

@2:39 That's what she said.

for post mortem: how is Erla being charged for perjury if she confessed under duress? isn’t anything she said basically invalidated because it was all forced from torture? or is her perjury charge unrelated

Oh my lord PLEASE (if you haven't already) do a video determining if Vlad Dracul The Impaler is Dracula

yes!!!

Wow Ryan did pretty good with those pronunciations! Also, question for Shane, what was the best part of your trip to Iceland?

what happened to the detectives/interrogators that tortured the “suspects”?

for post mortem

Definitely recommend coming to Gettysburg for some real ghost experiences!

This is #42 on trending

AWH I’m so happy they mentioned Reno lmao idk why but no one ever talks about us :(

Nobody: Shane: when I was in Iceland—

I love that Shane's just there for commentary and Ryan's there to lay out the facts and case

american names: bob, jon, alex icelandic names: goose-moon-bear

“Gonna turn Iceland into Greenland baby!”

Ryan’s pronunciation of all those Icelandic names was STAGGERINGLY impressive. Bravo, sir!

Please subscribe to pewdiepie, and keep individual content on top

BUZZFEED UNSOLVED SUGGESTION: you should do the death of james calendar. nobody knows for sure if he was murdered in 1803 and thrown into the james river, or if one of the founding fathers murdered him due to a grudge and threw him into the james river. it is unsolved.

Not that I miss it (I don't) what the hell happened to the hot daga?!?!?!?!?!

P

#murderhead 4 life

Video Idea: The recent disappearance of Dennis Day, a man who starred in Disney's original Micky Mouse Club in the 1950s, and the UNIDENTIFIED HUMAN REMAInS FOUND IN HIS HOME and the odd fact that hiS HUSBAND CAN'T REMEMBER A THING

About once a year we will do a murder

When is the Jersey Devil gonna be covered?? Maybe other cryptids too like a trip to go see the Loch Ness monster or the Chupacabra!

5:05 I'm surprised Shane let them film his stash

where was it that Shane went to last year again?? Does anybody know? I wish he’d talked more about it.

Aliens

I'm literally LMAO! You're pronouncing every Icelandic word wrong!

Postmortem: I’m down for being a ‘ murder head’ it’s a fitting name for this particular fan base

and this is why i wanna do a research paper on false confessions so bad!!

You guys should do one at the Glenn Dale Haunted Hospital!

The Blair Witch

Buzzfeed Unsolved really said 1312 huh

I RECON IT WAS DEM DER ALIENS!

At the beginning I had an add for the trailer Llorona

The unsolved guys and the try guys are the only ones keeping buzzfeed alive, but the try guys left. Happy they started their own company. Good work boys and well done to the crew and staff

Do the Monster of Florence next!

As much as I dislike Buzzfeed, this is one of the only good things they make

Can we talk about how the names from Iceland just sound like baby gibberish?

Please do a Madeline McCann investigation!!

You guys should do one on the deaths of sid and nacy

Hey Shane... Instead of "murder heads" why not "killer bees" for "Buzz"feed unsolved.

(for post mortem) why wouldn't Gudmundur's friends who saw him hitching a ride just pull over and help him out? also keep up the good work!#shaniac #boogara #ghostsarentreal

Do one on the John gaslie clown case please

why do all these names sound like someone sneezing? no offence meant but likeeeee still

The police should have sent them to the ranch

Did anyone else notice the creepy figure behind Shane?!

Love the show! Have you guys considered doing podcasts?

DO MADELEINE MCCANN

Ryan, how many times did you have to practice saying all these names?

i think i'd confess to anything u want after hours n hours n hours of questionning ... cant imagine what those poor souls went thru .... didn't the icelandic police know anythg about forced confessions? idiots....

Hello! Huge fan, hope you guys read this. You should do a episode about Sture Bergwall/Thomas Quick. He is a swedish man who clamied to have murdered alot of people but later took it all back.

BuzzFeed Unsolved Network @Post Mortem Do you think that the ‘missing people’ were murder cases that the Icelandic police hadn’t solved and maybe they needed a case to pin some murders to so they didn’t look extremely incompetent?

me: all hail the watcher Iceland: solitary confinement

Try the stoneman for the next episode

Unsolved is quickly becoming a favourite series of mine, really excellent work, best wishes to all involved

Do madeline mccann

You guys should look into the case of Lauren Spierers.

ohh??? this was uploaded on my birthday???? what a birthday gift then

#postmortem Shane, do you hate the spirit box so much because you are a demon?#shaniac #boogarasarestillrelevant

Isn't it obvious what happened to those two guys? Classic case of alien abduction.

No one: Shane: did you guys know I went to Iceland?

ey I have ideas for new episodes: Lead Mask Case Springfield Three 2001 Anthrax Attacks Walker family

Okay but what if it was ALIENS

And how about the poor baby

For the post Mortem: if you solve a mystery, will you change the series name? It's an important question that's caused fights between many I know

there's a movie about this case on netflix, 'out of thin air.' it's really good but it's also heartbreaking, because it goes more into the lifelong effect of the mental abuse these people suffered. for some of them, their lives were absolutely ruined.

Nobody: Not a single soul: Not even my sleep paralysis demon: ICELAND POLICE: "SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!!!!!"

what about 'The Wallace Case', the death of Julia Wallace, seems interesting..

The case name looks like you just typed it with your eyes closed look i could do it! Shrnzgsj how did I do

Can you please do an episode about the Miami Showband Killing/Massacre?

Idk if u have already done this but you should look into the Madeleine McCann case

You should go to the Bisbee hotel I think there is a ghost tour

#poatmortum how do u guys decide what your going to investigate? Do u take turns picking?

Hwaseong serial murders case please

Alcohol, checkbooks, and CANDLES??

do Paco Larrañaga's case in Philippines please

dunno if you'll see this, but you should do an episode on Bela Kiss! Creepy Hungarian serial killer who disappeared, very unnerving, very intriguing, very unsolved

They probably all went crazy for staying there for years

@ 10:14 ryan has voice crack and i quote: "QuOtE"

"quote. maybe. end quote."

"Alcohol, candles, and checkbooks" candles

Is no one gonna mention the vibrator in that bed when they removed the sheet in the pic

You should cover the Iguala mass kidnapping. I haven't seen a lot of YouTubers talk about this so far and it needs to be talked about.

this just in: BFU fans now called - murderheads

You should let Shane present the next case

Ryan: Says Icelandic words correctly. But can't say February. Sorry! Love you guys so much! #boogara

You guys should go to the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Georgia

please do the lady of the lake in washington!!

I know this topic would be really hard but i think buzzfeed unsolved should shed light onto the Sewol ferry tragedy there’s so much that went without explaining such as the cause of the boat mysteriously sinking but also why they didn’t do anything to rescue the kids

I get that there isn't much crime in Iceland but if people disappear regularly there why wouldn't there be a missing persons squad? even if they don't think it's related to a crime isn't it worth it to have something in place to solve these disappearances?

We want more aliens and ghost !!#ghosts#aliens#hotdoga

favorite part of the video was ryan saying all the names

It reminds me of the Alctaraz Solitary Confinement. For #Postmortem, what happened to the laws existing today in Iceland? How does it work nowadays? Rules for anyone to receive solitary confinement should be clearer by now.

The sad part in this is that no one will ever know what really happened to the missing men because the police spent so much time messing with wrong suspects.

For anyone curious about similar cases, watch confession tapes on Netflix. It’s really eye opening

For Post Mortem: Can we just get some commentary just how flawed, awful, and outdated certain prison and investigation practices are? Like, even polygraphs (lie detectors) can be tricked and were pseudoscience to begin with. (Did my research with the help of Adam Ruins Everything)

Check out "Disappearance of the Beaumont children". Another Aussie one thats remained unsolved. They not so long ago dug up a neighbourhood on an anonymous tip and found nothing new. P.S. It's pronounced Bath-hurst, not Bat-hurst. P.P.S. Glenelg is a palindrome and the only other one I've ever heard of is on Mars.

*No one:* *Absolutely nobody:* *Shane:* *_"ICeLAnD"_*

can't do this, my brain isn't working because of SATs and this is very confusing to my simple mind

The kidnaping of Heather Teague

do an unsolved on cary stayner

peep the voice crack 10:15

Lindberg Baby! Do the Lindbergs!

I thought the reason to get rubber sheets would be cum-related lmao

I lose it every time Ryan says a name

I love the fact that instead of a sketch they make a sculpture of the guy's face and carry it around showing it to people

For the post-mortem: What if the two men who disappeared were actually lovers who ran off to start a new life together? And they did it ten months apart so no one would be suspicious of them?

i'm literally watching this the day before my friend goes to Iceland and i'm scared for her

when Americans can't say Reykjavík right :/ Edit: They can't say a single word right.

What was the act mentioned in this video??

Can you please do an episode on the Loch Ness monster?

You guys should do Jonestown Massacare

Iceland is just Germany,but Colder.

Is it weird that I had a school assignment on capital city of Iceland...comes up in my recommended

#BuzzfeedUnsolved101 Cops are really bad at doing their jobs (because they're corrupt).

Me : *ALL HAIL THE WATCHER !!* Icelandic Police : He seems like a stable guy. I don't think there's any need for solitary confinement.

when in doubt, CONFINEMENT.

I actually went to Iceland and stayed in Reykjavik for about 5 days in January, didn't get to see the Northern Lights but this is super cool to hear about!

Do an episode on the murder of Evandro that happened in 1992, in Brasil. It’s a really really really strange case. People were declared guilty, but there are lots of facts that put he charges on doubt. It would be awesome to see you guys talking about it.

literally no one: iceland police: SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

Do one on Madeline Mcann

im from ice land : )

You guys should do Sacco and Vanzetti next!

I live in Iceland

Ohhh, everything about Erla... it just screams poor management. I've taken ONE class on witness psychology, and this (as you're describing it) was just so poorly done that it's literally what you're taught in lesson one not to do. Never ask leading questions. Don't mess with their memories. Never threaten the victim.

all the names sound like keysmashes

Love how Shane wanted a usual suspects joke but was denied by ryan

Pls do some Indian unsolved cases.

Never thought I'd miss the "wheeze"

I really liked this episode. I feel like I should travel to Iceland to walk the fields and solve this myself.

These names are funny

It's the Terminator, schizophrenics, and an alien Lind controlling people to act suspicious

ryan: Shane: when i was in iceland...

You should do one over area 51

Does anybody else find it ironic that the name of the town sounds like “wreak havoc”?

*SOLITARY CONFINEMENT*

Plot twist, the police did it

I totally understand that it can be really hard to pronounce scandinavian words, but I just can't manage myself. It's entetainment on it's best when non scandics are trying to pronounce "our" words :)

There are some ppl who enjoys pushing people into the water late at night on pay day. Drunk ppl lose their orientation under water. Several cases of this in Sweden.

Iceland into Greenland

Ryan, go to Iceland. It is absolutely breath-taking... and they still believe in faeries and trolls there. I'm sure you could do an episode for the supernatural series!

And how come these people were convicted without any apparent motive. Plus the victim that went into a cafe, how did nobody see him inside the cafe?

maybe they didn’t report it because they didn’t want to get put in solitary confinement? idk, but i love you guys

So I’m from Iceland and it’s so fucked up listening to u say those Icelandic names like for example Guðmundur Einarsson. But any way good job

maybe until now they still have low rate of crimes cos of the way they solve crimes

If disappearances were so common on Iceland, then why were the police so eager to assume/prove these two cases were murder?

Erla hormonal imbalance would also be completely off due to her just having a child.

Even just solitary alone is torture, jesus christ

this confession reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials. The case of the blame game b/c they were being tortured.

you guys should cover the disappearance of Harold Holt, he was an Australian Prime Minister who went swimming one day and just never reappeared and his body was never found

honestly if i was kept in solitude for days and days id even confess for a crime i didn't commit just to get outta there

Can you do one season of SOLVED where you talk about Ted Bundy,Jeffrey Dahmer and such. I think that would be so cool.

All Hail The Watcher

This is honestly one of the most confusing true crime episodes I've ever watched...

I live in Reykjavik and when my car was stolen they didn't even jail the people who stole it. We got our car back full of needles and they went about their lives.

Japans 300 million yen robbery would be interesting

*sponsored by Greenland*

Could you cover the murder of the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme?

Moreeeee videos!

Why does Shane’s look different in every single unsolved video. he goes looking 20 to 35 and I honestly think he’s an alien

no one's commenting on the fact that erla fought a conviction of perjury for _decades?_

Can you guys make a video regarding the Mysterious Voynich Manuscript?

Nobody: Shane: IN ICELAND!!!

what a horrible miscarriage of justice

THESE NAMES WOW.

tbh i want them to do an ep on the jersey devil, seems pretty interesting

do you guys reckon shane went to iceland?

I would love to see an episode on the St. Valentines Day Massacre.

10/10 would Stefan Karl again.

All of this would be SOOOOOO illegal in the U.S. Yikes.

This doesnt seem suspicious at all this just seems like abuse

You guys should do the case on the Texas chainsaw massacre

This is truly weird, and yet he did not make it home. Jeremiah 1:5 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified[a] you; I [b]ordained you a prophet to the nations.” So do not let the evil voices snuff out your life by getting you to see only the debt, enemies, bully’s, sin, problems, and/or self-hatred. You are more than a conqueror! Life has ups and downs. Remember, if you are at the bottom, you can only go up from here. Do not listen to the voice that suggests death. For death is not of God, it is a lie from the enemy to suggest a quiet place, a grave, but God says, 15 “Look, today I have set before you life and death, depending on whether you obey or disobey. 16 I have commanded you today to love the Lord your God and to follow his paths and to keep his laws, so that you will live and become a great nation, and so that the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to possess.

5:20 I'm 100% sure neither of these two have every been around anybody whos smoked weed in their entire lives

I can’t stand the lottery story

Isn't this why Arthur Miller wrote the Crucible?

aliens.

For the Postmortem- so, this is more a question about the show in general, not really this specific episode, but anyway- how do you guys pick the cases in your true crime episodes and the places you go to in your supernatural episodes? (This is totally not the reason I’m asking but there’s a spoopy theater in town that’s supposedly haunted and like

Do the hinterkaifek murders again in a longer series. That's the most interesting thing EVER!

I feel like Iceland is in denial about how many murders they have...

And everybody wants to hate on American cops.. go to Iceland, and humble yourselves

AMOS Don_dolphins

"Ertla"

I'm impressed. Not only did Ryan make a solid effort to try to pronounce these names correctly (whether he did or not is beside the point - he clearly tried and didn't stumble over them), but there also was not a single f-bomb dropped this episode, or any cursing for that matter. These two guys are my favorite, but they do have horrible potty mouths. I'm a terrible potty mouth myself, so that made me even more impressed with it. Lol. I also love the cassette holder that's on the desk next to Shane holding the books and old phone. We used to have one of those drawer-holders a long time ago and I never thought I'd see another one. That's neat.

Sometimes we do a mirder

Lets learn icelandic!! Hi my name is (your name) Icelandic: hæ ég heiti (nafnið þitt) Hi Icelandic: hæ Bye Icelandic: bæ Im tired Icelandic: ég er þreitt(ur) Comment if you want to learn more! (Btw i didnt use google translate)

But Ryan can’t pronounce February?.....smh xD

Ryan: Flawlessly pronounces “Gudjon Skarphadinsson” and “Saevar Ciesielski” *cant pronounce la llorona*

#murderheads

Skin walker canyon??

I literally can’t keep track of who’s who bc the names all sound the same

I don’t know why they just don’t use their real pictures.... it’s public knowledge.

I try not to watch these cuz then I get extremely paranoid and really depressed but like I love these and they aren’t the SOUL reason I get depressed so oh well

Anyone on Earth: Shane: You know Ive been to Iceland

you guys should do the Madeleine McCann disappearance

THEY WERE DRUNK! BECAUSE WHEN UR DRUNK U USALLY CANT REMBER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN U COME OUT OF UR INNER DRUNKEN SIDE o.O

Creep

anyone from Iceland: h- police: solitary confinement

For the Postmortem- So I never have bedsheets on my bed. Does that mean I’m a murderer?

They literally forced confessions from all of them. It would be possible for none of them to be involved. All of their "memories" could be their imagination.

My Lord the police in Iceland make the United States justice system look like a kiddie bounce house.

I am icelandic and i mnow of one murder that happened last year where a teenage girl dissapeared and was found murdered

i hope these people get an apology and reimbursement from the government for psychological torture. this is such disgusting treatment and they weren't even convicted of anything yet

Where’s the freaking Netflix series???!!!!!

Solitary confinement can do some real damage on the kind and then the torturing. Not saying that they aren’t bad people, but that is a little too cruel on the torturing

but why did the people want to kill the 2 guys??

i went to iceland last year too, and i completely agree with shane in the beginning. iceland felt like heaven

You need to do a video about the Maude Crawford case!

can y'all cover the unsolved murder of Olof Palme?

I’m a huge fan of you guys, and also a huge punk fan. I’m not sure if y’all have done it yet, but maybe try the story of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, or Kurt Cobain’s alleged suicide/possible homicide.

Solve the murderous butchering of the Icelandic names (Also we love you, Shane)

Ryan Skype with someone in Iceland to learn how to pronounce the names , how commited is he!!!

You're butchering the names, man x'D

May I suggest you do the Beth Doe case from 1976?

#postmortem did they just make her have suggested memories?

I want to see an episode on Albert Fish so bad but I’m not sure if they do cases like him rip

Question for Post Mortem- Have there been any reparations, or law suits brought by the people tortured into false confessions?

https://youtu.be/YvRbUUYdVgI You guys need to do conspiracy theories on missing Macadventures you tubers and Area 51!!!

I GOT BACK FROM A TRIP TO ICELAND 2 DAYS AGO NOT EVEN KIDDING WTF SPOOKY

Iceland's police discovers that if they psychologically torture anyone enough, they'll confess to anything

hi from iceland

Me:"Good Morning Officer." Icelandic Police:"Solitary Confinement!"

wow! all cops sure ARE bastards huh!

It's really hard to have any suspicions for me because I can't trust any of the suspects at all given how they were coerced and tortured. Which would also make it hard to come back to now and try to solve it. At best, maybe an amateur diver could look for the body underwater?

*I wonder how squishy a brain is*

I’m in AP World and we were talking about the Tiananmen Square protest, and I remember people talking about this but I was heavily interested in the Tank Man disappearances

Please !! Go to the Warren Occult Museum ! We need to know if the doll is real!!

"Gonna turn Iceland into Greenland Baby"

Lets go denmark

Go to the Annabelle doll place

PLEASE DO THE OURANG MEDAN CAASE!!!!!!!!

Can you guys do Elisa Lam?

Police officer: Your name sir? Guy: iogipjferopskrojusdson Police officer: Alright then maybe solitary will refresh your memory

#postmortem I once read that in 6 hours, you can be concinced you committed a certain crime. I believe that's why they gave false confessions. Also, could you cover the case of de bende van Nijvel? It's an unsolved case about a group of criminals that committed various crimes in Belgium. There has been a movie made about it, and I really would like to know your opinions on the case!

There is a documentary called 'Out of Thin Air' which is all about these confessions and murders. It's available on UK Netflix - you should give it a watch if this interested you!

For post mortem, i have a important question. where is the hot daga?

Why is no one talking about the people who saw their friend drunk stumbling in the snow on the side of the road, and were like “okay chill.” And just left him? Fake friends

A history of school shootings

*Like or Na*

do a video on manuelita dejos pierce. crazy

New BUN case to cover: Why Shane will not answer Ryan’s question about the rubber sheets.

Can you investigate the Mary Ellen Tanner case? (The Girl on the Bridge)

So I think the boys should go to a haunted house and just see how much hunting real ghosts has prepared them

hey the mystery was solved It was Icelandic cops committing crimes against humanity

I’m icelandic, I never knew these.

Please do Oscar Pistorius and Henri van Breda murders in True Crime!

The disappearance of Madeline McCann is a mystery that would be great to see

For post mortem: how many takes did it take to shoot ryan saying all the names at 12 08

You should check out the danish case of Emilie Meng. It's tragic but also extremely interesting.

Leo Frank and Mary Phagan pls!! It baffles me

The murder of Mary Phagan pls!!!

I'd love to see you both tackle the mystery about Mark Adams escaping San Quentin prison in 1986.

At what time comes the new epsiode?

Reykjavik is pronounced Ray-ka-Vic (like Victoria)

I love this show

im icelandic and they way he says reykjavík

the way he says guðmundur- gOoThmOoNduR

Who would have thought that "Albert" would be the least comical of all the names?

Plz visit haunted Maggie Maggie bridge...PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

"turn Iceland into Greenland" best line in the whole video lmao

I’m watching this at 12:30 probably won’t sleep

Ayyy, I'm from Iceland and currently live in Reykjavik Also the pronunciations were painful to listen to, good try though

I kinda wanna see them come to Portland and Investigate the Kyron Horman case. He's been on my mind lately.

Can you do marilyn monroe

My friend just made me realize that Ryan and Shane is just an iconic pair of duo names. Shane Dawson and Ryan Adams. Our goul Bois... Conspiracy??

They're the "Problem Unsolvers”

Madeleine McCann pleaseee

Really appreciated the effort put into proper pronunciation in this! It's refreshing to see foreign words/names spoken well rather than butchered

I am from Iceland and I have NEeeEevErr heard of this. Can’t wait to watch this.

whats bun

“he was told he’d drown if he didn’t confess.” wow i wonder why they confessed

Easily my 2 favourite YouTubes, together Ryan and Shane work amazing together and are so entertaining xxxx

Do you think you could make one of Edgar Allan Poe’s death

okay but when he says "geirfinnur" it sounds like a reversed phrase. I don't know what phrase, but it does.

AYYY THE BOYS ARE BACK

Solitary confinement is torture.

I think they were gay and were together but couldn't bear telling their spouses/family so they just disappeared at different times The phone call was what gave it away

Isn't there a Netflix show loosely based on this?

nobody : shane and Ryan : *(wheeze)*

*(wheeze)*

You guys should go to the Stanley hotel.

I have some stories that happend in reykjavík. Comment on this comment and i’ll show u :v

*NO ONE EXPECTS ICELANDIC SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!*

If there are so many disappearances in Iceland, why do they not have a missing persons task force????

Cieselski isn’t an Icelandic last name, that’s pretty interesting

4:53 so awkward.

Hello :) How about this case: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brabant_killers, de Bende van Nijvel ?

I bet 5$ that iceland is the most *safest* country in the world

Nein, Es ist Kopenhagen

An old grudge over carrots and the grandchildren swore to avenge their carrots but they lost the blood line and had to kill them all

Next unsolved video should be about Madeleine McCann

19:12 remember me, tho I have to say goodbye~

11:28 basically breaking bad lmao

It’s funny you mentioned the lottery because I was in a play for it. Also I have a cousin that all of a sudden disappeared and no one knows what happened

quick question, why not use the real photos of these people if this is all public information anyways? I feel like that would make these videos that much more creepy lol

do a bonnie and clyde

false confessions, for sure.

The mannequin behind Shane always freaks me out every time I see it

Iceland is or used to be known for low crime. BUT, they don't include disappearances in their crime statistics. There probably have been several serial killers operating there over the past decades and decades. It is easy for people to disappear voluntarily and commit suicide without being found there, but that means it is also easy for murderers to hide their crimes there too. Also, Iceland likes to brag about low rates of Down Syndrome babies and handicapped babies being born there, but that is because they promote and advocate for those babies to be aborted before birth. So statistics don't tell the whole story. Sure Iceland sounds like a paradise on paper to some people, but when you delve deeper you will see that really Iceland is no different than many other countries and has many crimes, they are just not found out about due to the type of land and environment they have there. Sure many people who have disappeared probably died by suicide or by natural elements due to the weather and other hazardous conditions there, but some of them probably were murdered also. Iceland loves to tout their low crime rates for tourism money but they are not a crime free perfect paradise. One of the main reasons Iceland has lower crime rates is also that they have low immigration rates. Hmmm. Maybe if we want the USA to have safer cities we should consider that? :)

MH370 please!

do the villisca axe murders!!!

Most of these cases are only unsolved because the police have no idea what tf they're doing

iceland is amazing, i went there too!!! have to agree with whatever Shane had to say about the people. they were all so nice and welcoming.

How have they still not done Madeleine McCann?

See I have to question all those disappearances. They say there's like one murder a year....but just accept that people just go missing and its just not from murder? Unless I misunderstood what Ryan was saying, just seemed like two and two weren't being put together by Iceland.

Are shadowed faces that you show for the people their real identical faces or just random faces

Sævar Ciesielski was terrified of water, that's why the tortured him by putting his head sink of water.

Okay I'm sorry but how did two of his friends, NOT stop and pick them up if they we're there friends that doesn't make any sense to me they just drove and keep doing

The. An in the back at 3:03 freaked me The heck out

When Shane said like "murder lottery" reminds me of a short story I had to read in English, the short of the story is a small town gathers up and does this lottery thing one person from each family picks a piece of paper and what ever family has the paper with the dot gets chosen then they put the paper with a dot on it back in the box shuffle it and make the whole family pick a piece of paper and who ever has the dot this time gets stoned to death by the whole town for like a sacrifice

Someone give Ryan a medal for pronouncing all those names

Come on, the way he pronounced these names and places was funny...but he did well considering how difficult Icelandic is.

*Police Officer asking his Crush out* Police: So,do you accept me as your date? Girl: Yes. Police: I have never got that answer, To Jail You Go.

Girl: *Pikachu face*

So....we're not talking about how that guy just randomly steals CANDLES??? Like....how....why??

Out of all of buzzfeed this creates the least amount of buzz, but is the most accurate, and intriguing sub section of buzzfeed. Good on these two guys.

Just because your police are incompetent doesn’t mean Iceland is a safe place with no murders

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqKdEhx-dD4

I just want to say ...ryans voice with his unique accent is soooo good pronouncing all those Icelandic names lol ohhh i loved it! Especially Erla

Can someone love me as much as Shane loves Iceland

Oh yeah, that's the green light, baby. Fire up that room again. 10:25

They should investigate Jon Benet

wait, did shane go to iceland?

Who's the man at 0:29

"Gonna turn Iceland into Greenland,baby" fav line of the season

“decomposing body in an open field” *hozier has entered the chat*

Dove: Fashion ready underarms Shane: ThrOw an in soLitArY coNfIneMenT

this hurt my brain.. the way he complietley SLOUGHTERED those names.. a point for trying though!

Can anyone tell me what's so special about Iceland? Literally I've had at least 6 people either visit or show interest in visiting in the last 6 months. Iceland was a "nobody" country until like a year ago and now it's blowing up and I'm hearing about it everywhere. Is there some big event that I'm missing?

Rubber sheets rock when your cat decides to owe on the bed for whatever reason or dog or spill something like water or Roman noodles

All hail the watcher

What happened to the baby?

I don't know about anyone else, but this only made me hate the police more than I already did lol. However, it was a good and interesting episode, and I loved hearing about Shane's Iceland trip xD

No one: Shane:

The next video that I would like to see is the Clinton road in NJ mystery they say it’s haunted

iceland rated the number one place to comit murder

I like how they're like "nah crime never happens here...on an unrelated note there's a ton of missing people. That's super common. Oh and we still don't know what happened to them." Do they not think maybe that's the result of crime, at least in some cases? Do they not put those two things together possibly?? I mean I know some people run away but come on lmao also, I've always wanted to go to Iceland! Kudos on pronouncing all those names!

For the postmortem: What if they have the purge..... Thoughts?

When I get murdered I want it to be done so well when it's featured only one theory is presented and it's about aliens.

My b'day is on Jan. 27

Well uh, I not long back from a school trip to Iceland and well uh, I survived

I just finished watching the one about la llarona and I got an ad for the movie

Take Shane to see Annabelle and let him do his thing lol

where's the new episode

HEY FROM ICELAND!! I'm probably your biggest fan over here hahah With so much love - ICELAND

Selena Stickney thank you ❤️ It's really Icelandic hahha

I love your name

If u wanna know more watch out of thin air on Netflix

Finally Ryan fixes his hair up

Do bella in the witch elm!

2:43 thats what she said

Lemongrab voice: SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!!!!

The mannequin gives me anxiety

13:18 Is that supposed to be a Mob Pyscho 100 reference?

Cops are way scarier than demons

ACAB

They should make a movie about Gisli, I think it would be amazing

Ooh so sims characters speaks Iceland names!!

I got an ad for a visit to iceland lol

Haf-en-ar-fjor-thur

Ryan: Gudmundur Einarsson My ears: anus

This was on my reccomended and I just checked the thumbnail and it had Iceland in it so I clicked on it right away because I’m Icelandic and I never see videos about Iceland

Where did you go kayaking?

Would ye ever do the death of Kurt Cobain? Man was one of the greatest rock stars ever and influential to many (including myself) and many of his fans are unsatisfied with his death being ruled out as suicide considering all the inconsistencies in the case and evidence it was otherwise.

I'm from Iceland btw

Finally someone is talking about Icelandic mysteries! We have a lot of missing persons mysteries only a handful of murders (now a days) and loads of folklore and ghost stories. I love when foreign people try pronouncing Icelandic names and places and you did a good job but at least one time you murdered Geirfinnur's name

half the letters are unrequired in the names

False memory syndrome - this is why Ted Bundy "confessed" and why so much of what he said didn't match up.

Reykjavik Police feels like Ace Combat 7's Col. Mckinsley and Bandog. "YOU! SOLITARY NOW!"

This is not normal police work in Iceland, this was 45 years ago (1974). Pretty sure around that time, no matter what country, you could fine holes in the police work of said country. We don’t have a lot of murders in Iceland, that is true, and the police was not equipped for the investigation. This case is famous, in Iceland, as an example for what not to do. Btw, not perfect pronunciation of the names but pretty good. Made me laugh a bit ☺️

Ryan’s pronunciation is surprisingly solid this time

Im still curios who was taking care of the baby while the baby's mother was in the solitary confinement

Your awesome?

Do the talwar case

His wife goofny

Why are there so many comments saying all hail the watcher because I don’t get it

Damn, Iceland is a big victim of Thanos.

I couldn’t even pronounce the names of the place and the people

:3

0:18 just me or does Shane look mad that Ryan cut him off?

ayy so the true horror isn't any ghost but the cruelty of man, nice light note to be on!!

Shane: "No I didn't buy the rubber sheet!" Ryan: "Sit there for 10 days. SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!"

She got the whole team flicked

heres my theory: they had the same last name cause they were secretly married and eventually decided to run off together, but they did it at different times to prevent suspicion then they lived happily ever after the end

The amount of time they spent in solitary is so messed up

They basically created memories for them. I don't think they really understand how doing that is literally turning them insane.

I just enjoy how Icelandic words look so much.

2:41 maybe he meant cum

Random person: “Hey look at the moon!” Other person: “Hey, Gudmunder!” Get it? Good moon there Gudmunder

Hey i live there

This case is so fucked up because the police literally tortured like 5 people???? and got away with it????

there is a documentary on this and it’s very interesting!!!!

everyone: iceland: sOLiTaRy CoNfINeMeNT also why did they treat erla so badly like the lady confessed and she just had a BaBY?

That voice crack at 10:15

The fairies got them.

do the case of Belle Gunness!

Yy

I would have said that the guard made me do the murder and had a gun to my head

Nobody: Shane: My rubber sheets

no-one: Icelandic police: SOLITARY CONFINEMENT for a murder you didn't eijbweiubewusdoouosubewg

OMG THEYRE TALKING ABOUT ICELAND IM ONLY 30 SECONDS IN AND IM ALREADY EXITED AAAAAAAAAAAAA

this is an extreme case of police brutality. absolutely disgusting

no one: Shane: wHen I wENt tO iCeLAnD...

I just want to ask something WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BABY

Taken by police and put in foster care I believe.

2:39 thats what she said

i went to iceland not to long ago and it was incredible tbh

The best part of the video is Ryan trying to pronounce icelandic names

Just pure 21:11 minutes of Shane selling Iceland to everyone. And I think I'm going to book a flight in the future...

and these guys seem like modern-day Beavis and Butthead but I'll say this I never wanted to go to New Zealand before but I sure as hell ain't going there now because they were in your lesson well from hir furore their love for Hitler and the SS sure has worked well for them here man New Zealand what a great place to live and visit. .NOOOOOT

for post mortem: GO GHOST HUNTING IN ICELAND!!! or like, body hunting. Either works. Love the effort Ryan put in to the names! xx

Stuck in solitary confinement? *all hail the watcher*

Please talk about the case of the missing Malaysian airplane, MH370

btw, if you are pissed off about how police handled this case, do a research on US prison system.

This episode makes me so angry. Not even Ryan’s attempts at pronunciations saved this episode for me. Not that the boys did anything bad by any means, but because of the terrible police in this episode.

basically a story of Icelandic police not knowing how to do their job

so iceland has a purge XD good to know

hmmm i hope they do bonnie and clyde true crime

can you do father of ninoy aquino assasination thx

Ja

I'm Norwegian, and I can hear that you butchered those names..

When young men dissapear here in beautiful Copenhagen, they always seem to turn up drowned in the harbour. I'm guessing that happens in Iceland too.

Top notch entertainment just hearing Ryan pronouncing Icelandic names

Y’all help I heard a really loud noise and realized it’s not part of the video it’s almost 4 am skskksskksksksks oh no they’re after me

All jokes aside, remember that if these people did not murder those two men, all of their lives were ruined nonetheless.

*NO I DIDN'T BUY THE RUBBER SHEETS*

This is basically the Crucible

Do sth about Nepal's royal massacre.

Solitary confinement is cruel and unusual punishment. It's a form of torture and should be banned across the globe.

the fact that he said pop , yes

These are...names

NO I didn't buy the rubber sheets!!!

oh yuk.

All hail the watcher

props to Ryan for pronouncing all the Icelandic names

You saying icelandic names is hilarious imfromicelandbtw

Im from Iceland and The way you say Icelandic words is maddening hahaha but loved the show

Question for Post Mortem: If so many people are known to have gone missing in Iceland, how come there isn't a missing person task force or something like it? It doesn't make any sense.

Just ask The Watcher! The Watcher see's all and knows all

I'm from Icelaaaaandddd

Denmark is great, greetings from Copenhagen

I have a question what happened to the baby?

I love Iceland! I went there on a geography trip once and it was amazing!

Shane in the beginning looksssssssss soooooooooooooooo tired

This is like a bad movie

It's so funny how the Icelandic names are pronounced, I'm Icelandic and know the real pronunciation so it is extra funny! XD

"Gonna turn Iceland into Greenland,baby." hahhaahhaahhaahhahaha

These names man

though out the story, I was only thinking about the 11 month baby.

... His friends saw him drunk-hitchhiking and... didn't TAKE HIM HOME???

The fact that they have the same last name makes me think that somebody killed the wrong person and then 10 months later realised it and then killed the right person... maybe it was a payed murder and they only gave a surname or like G. Einarsson. Or maybe even the police was involved with the murder or someone from the police was and that was the reason they wanted them to confess to the murder.
