Gracie Vor 4 Tage
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

Usually I'm all up for the crazier theories but as a Scot living on the east coast I've seen the sea do some insane stuff. I know the sea around the west coast is way worse, and on a small island it could definitely get really bad. They 100% just got swept out to sea, though I do love a good Kelpie story.

the vignette effect that you give while exporting a video is making Shanes face blurred especially in the wide-angle frame. either adjust his sitting position or adjust the camera.

Postmortem: so my theory is they bailed. Like shane said but without the love triangle. Firstly the job didn't seem to have many benefits, psychological fatigue, isolation, it must have gotten to them so why not just stage a disappearance. The Mackenzie guy could have been in on it too. Because not reporting something for two weeks is suspicious. Like we'd understand some days but two weeks? Idk he just seems like he's hiding something. I think the disappearance was staged by the victims.

This reminds me, wasn't there a mystery movie like this named Keepers from 2018, with Gerard Butler? With two older lighthouse keepers and one that's younger? I don't wanna spoil it, and I was kinda meh about it myself, but I'm pretty convinced it was based on this story now.

To Ryan and shane I present you the mother of all mystery murders. The case would be easiest for you to present as all the related facts are available to you in public Domain (Except who killed them) . Even two movies are made based on the same. Here is a brief description. The Noida double murder case refers to the unsolved murders of 13-year-old girl Aarushi Talwar and 45-year-old Hemraj Banjade, a male live-in domestic worker employed by her family. The two were killed on the night of 15-16 May 2008 at Aarushi's home in Noida, India. The tiny details of the events happened at the night of the murder can give you chills. Hope you give it a try. Big fan of your show.

In all honesty, they were 100% swept away by the ocean. This is one of the most remote Scottish islands, in December, with record of stormy weather. Heck, the guy employed to keep an eye on the light from afar probably didn't think much of not being able to see the light for days because IT'S A RURAL SCOTLAND ISLAND IN DECEMBER.

If I imagine living in the 1800's I would probably be quick to point all my theories at the supernatural too. Like I don't know much about how the world works and neither does anyone else so, it must be magic? That's why these unsolved cases are weird to us now, because back then, nobody knew what evidence to look for and things just appeared "normal". The only evidence we can base research off of now, is the evidence collected back then. Maybe a big wave did hit the lighthouse but people pushed it under the rug because of insufficient evidence. In the 2000's, people don't really blame aliens or mermaid people on strange occurrences, because we know now what really happens. There's probably a logical explanation, and we just fail to find it.
