15 people share the most disturbing thing they've learned about someone they know.


Everyone has secrets and layers of themselves that you can't access when you first meet.

One of the most exciting parts of becoming close to them is peeling back the layers to learn the tucked in wonderful traits and the dark secrets you can't decipher upon first meeting.

But sometimes, learning something disturbing about a friend or acquaintance is just that: disturbing.

Luckily, the glorious anonymity of the internet is here to commiserate and serve as a balm of catharsis.

In a popular Ask Reddit thread, people shared the most disturbing piece of information they've learned about someone they personally know, and it truly runs the gamut.

1. From Local64bithero:

He honestly believed he was God's chosen representative on Earth, and therefore, no one was allowed to defy him or God would allow him to punish him.

As you can guess, he was charged with domestic battery several times, and got into a lot of fights (he usually lost, he was obese, and couldn't move very fast).

He was stalking some poor woman, and he showed up at her house and demanded she leave her husband and come with him as God had given her to him as his slave, and he tried to force his way in, and she shot and killed him.

We're a castle doctrine state, so she didn't get in any trouble.

2. From Lonely_Requirement76:

Guy I used to hang out/date with was caught not once, but twice torturing and killing cats. I still feel sick thinking about it.

3. From MrFunktasticc:

In my teens I knew a guy recently out of prison. There was another guy in the neighborhood who everyone hated. He would just cruise the block in his car because anytime he stayed anywhere too long, people would confront him.

Everyone hated this guy. Prison guy was in his late teens, guy everyone hated was in his early twenties and dating a girl who I believe was sixteen. Not long after getting out prison, guy got into it with the guy everyone hated.

It wasn't difficult, the guy was just incapable of acting in a way that didn't make you want to punch him. But he couldn't fight so he'd make himself scarce and then good luck finding him.

But prison guy wasn't giving up so easily so he kidnapped the other guy's girlfriend. Nothing cinematic he just went by her school and got her in a car then told her she wasn't allowed to leave until her boyfriend showed up.

Boyfriend, not one to back down from a scumbag contest, told her she's on her own. In the end the girl ended up dating prison guy. I don't even know who the story is about anymore. They were all very unique people.

4. From CocoTandy:

Years ago, I became very close with a manager of mine and we hung out after work pretty often. He seemed like a great guy. He moved back to his hometown years later and we kept in touch on Facebook until he just stopped responding.

Then I went to try to message him again and his profile was gone. I decided to Google him, half expecting to find an obituary or something but instead, I found out he was charged with some pedo s**t and in jail.

I never got any kind of weird vibes from him and I'm still shocked.

5. From Crumpet93:

A guy who is about 5 years older than me always followed me around school when I was 12/13. Used to walk me to the car and sit in front of the door so I couldn't close it and just talk to me and my mum for ages.

Then found out he lives in my street (still does to this day 17 yrs later). Few years ago he got convicted of making and distributing child p*rn*graphy.

6. From Ryry_Duppie:

When I was about 12 my family found out that my dad cheated on my mom, as well as every other ex-wife he had before her. Now, years later, women still recognize my mom as the one who was married to that one awful guy.

One woman met her in a bar and ended up telling her stories about how my dad would stalk her again and again. Once she even had to call her own dad to escort him off their property with a gun because he wouldn’t leave.

All of this happened while he was married to my mom.

7. From HK-Scat-Throwaway:

Someone in my neighborhood whom I got acquainted with, f**ked a cow. Thankfully the farmer caught the f**ker in the act and shot him​​​​​​​.

8. From Dxhf-78:

I used to drive to work every day with a guy who ended up killing 5 women.​​​​​​​

9. From lilcookiecrisp:

I have a couple. My first serious boyfriend was a convicted murderer. It wasn't premeditated, it was a drunken teen fight that ended badly. He's one one of the nicest guys I've dated.

A guy that I worked with but didn't really talk to always gave me a really bad feeling. We were often on the same shift pattern and even when walking to or from the bus stop, it felt like I was being followed.

On the bus, he'd always sit somewhere that I felt like his eyes were boring into me. Long story short it turned out he was just out of jail for r*ping someone I knew socially, when she was 17.

He went on to r*pe someone else and is now back in prison.

10. From PrairiePepper:

My mom went back to school when I was in high school to get more certifications in her field, met a lady from China who was also in the same class and they became friends.

She came by and I got to meet her a few times during their course that summer. After it was done, she went back to China and they still exchanged messages, she told my mom shortly after that she was pregnant.

Life went on and they didn't talk as often, then one day my mom gets a message from her husband out of nowhere.

Turns out she had the baby, got really bad postpartum depression, and jumped off their high rise balcony with the baby in hand, killing both. That kind of news is so shocking and unexpected that you don't even know how to process it. Terrible.

11. From CatsAreTheBest2:

My husband’s second cousin is in prison because she and her husband were convicted of murder among other things. Look up Erika Sifrit. It’s pretty awful what they did do their victims.​​​​​​​

12. From Loser_Strawberry:

When I was 12 years old I had a neighbor and I would occasionally babysit for his kids. He only had one rule which was don't go on his computer, normal enough right? Wouldn't want someone going through my things.

Only, one of his daughter went on it and I saw weird pictures of girls. He swiftly moved away not even a month later. Turns out he had photos of children hidden under his floorboards, only these were children that had gone missing.

The guy that moved into his house told my parents the photos were very concerning. We never found out if he was found and charged or not. I hope his children are okay.​​​​​​​

13. From Bhelduz:

I found out a former friend who lived with me became a quite prominent neo-nazi. Was always a weird person, just this was a bit to take in.​​​​​​​

14. From X0vel:

My uncle on my dads side of the family was an accomplice of a murder in the 80’s. He didn’t make the kill, but he helped the murder take place. Found out from my mom last year.​​​​​​​

15. From SpeckledCloud:

This is probably tame compared to others on here but my ex best friend lied about having brain cancer for 2 years. She also impersonated doctors to verify her story to the people she was lying to.​​​​​​​
