These five innocent looking photos hold terrifying back stories, viewer discretion is advised.

A famous picture of Evelyn McHale from 1947 is still one of the most iconic photographs ever taken. Why? Because a lady is seen 'sleeping' on an indented car, however, the back story is more of a haunting one. On April 30, 1947, McHale took a train from New York to Easton, Pennsylvania to visit Rhodes. The next day, after leaving Rhodes' residence, she returned to New York City and went to the Empire State Building where she jumped from the 86th-floor observatory. A security guard was reportedly standing approximately ten feet from her just before she jumped.
Detective Frank Murray found her suicide note in a black pocketbook next to her neatly folded cloth coat over the observation deck wall which read:
"I don't want anyone in or out of my family to see any part of me. Could you destroy my body by cremation? I beg of you and my family – don't have any service for me or remembrance for me. My fiancé asked me to marry him in June. I don't think I would make a good wife for anybody. He is much better off without me. Tell my father, I have too many of my mother's tendencies."
