From murders and disappearances to runestones and UFOs, Minnesota certainly has its share of mysteries.

"I’ve been reading r/unresolvedmysteries," shared one reddit user, "and just wondering if there are any local ones? "

PhilJSawdust shared one of the most famous.

"For the longest time it was the whereabouts of Jacob Wetterling. That obviously changed after they caught the person who killed him."

"The disappearance didn't happen here," offers Cheese-Tornados, "but Jodi Huisentruit is from here, and that's been a widely covered topic here since I was little."

"I remember I was in Chicago on business when I first heard about the Huisentuirt disappearance," adds Spiritual_pizza. "It bothers me to this day."

"The Kensington runestone," suggests Happyjarboy, tapping into local legend.

A mystery close to home, "The Reker Sisters," proposes cablelayer1. The mother of the murdered girls confronted the suspected killer on his deathbed in 2018, though he never admitted to the crime.

"Noel Dalluge," suggested ebacklund, referring to the teenage hunter who went missing in 1986.

"I was going to say 'where the water in Devil's Kettle goes,'" offers QuigleyQ, "but apparently that was recently solved!" Turns out, the waterfall in Minnesota’s Judge C. R. Magney State Park splits in two -- half of it runs over the edge of the falls while the other half falls into a "kettle" before rejoining the rest of the water at the bottom of the falls.

And then, of course, there's the 1979 incident where a cop car apparently crashed into a UFO, adds Lunaseed. "'I noticed a very bright, brilliant light, 8 to 12 inches in diameter, 3 to 4 feet off the ground,' Johnson said in a taped police interview. 'The edges were very defined.'"
