Crater , a Supreme Court Justice who was last seen leaving a restaurant on August 6, What happened to him is anybody's guess. He could've been killed—he had plenty of enemies, and there were rumors for awhile that he was buried under a section of the Coney Island boardwalk — but there were also rumblings that he'd fled the country with a mistress. His disappearance became such a huge topic of public speculation that for a brief time, the phrase "pulling a Crater" was a popular slang term for disappearing.

    As in, "why didn't you tell me you were gonna leave the party early? I turned around and you were gone. You pulled a Crater on me! There's so much we still don't know about the Watergate scandal that rocked the presidency of Richard Nixon , which forced his resignation on August 8th, The biggest mystery might be those missing eighteen and a half minutes from Nixon's tapes, the secret recordings he made of every conversation that took place in his Oval Office.

    Nobody knows for sure what was on the tapes—they may've been conversations between Nixon and his chief of staff Bob Haldeman—or what they revealed. Nixon's secretary, Rose Mary Woods , claimed responsibility for at least some of the erasure, claiming she accidentally hit the record button while transcribing the tapes, but only admitted blame for five minutes of missing tape.

You can't be that corrupt without making a few enemies. But the real mystery is, where's his body? Is it buried someplace?

    Hidden in cement, or at the bottom of a lake? Nobody knows or at least nobody's talking and it's been one of the most enduring unsolved mysteries of the world.
