Phantom Slasher of Taiwan

In 1956, citizens of Tapei, Taiwan were horrified they’d be the next victims of a supposed slasher going around randomly cutting people. 

Twenty-one victims were reported getting cut by this slasher. 

However, after further investigation, they found these victims would report everyday scrapes or wounds that happened throughout the day. 

But these people truly believed they were cut by the slasher. 

Police concluded the multitude of reports were psychological only.
