The most famous real-life ghost ship in history is also one of the greatest maritime mysteries ever.

A ship found floating is good condition without a soul aboard. Valuables untouched. No evidence of violence or serious damage.

The personal belongings of the captain and crew undisturbed. Strange spots, marks in the wood.

A famous inquiry with a prosecutor that comes right out of a cartoon. Wild theories, speculations, and accusations.

No solutions.
