Lake Lanier is a man-made lake in Georgia with a terrifying past. In order to create it, the US government flooded over 50,000 acres of land over five years, forcing entire towns of people to relocate. This lake not only has a series of perfectly intact ghost towns along the bottom, but a reputation for attracting strange deaths ever since its creation in the 1950s.

One of the most recent disappearances is that of a man named Kelly Nash who woke up one day with flu-like symptoms, told his girlfriend he was sick, and went back to sleep.
