At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

ON THIS DAY IN WEIRD


On This Day in Weird, January 26

1996: Sarah Ellen Spiers, age 18, becomes the first presumed victim of the still-unidentified "Claremont Serial Killer" when she vanishes after leaving a nightclub at the Ocean Beach Hotel in Claremont, West Australia. She apparently called a taxi from a phone booth but was absent when the cab arrived. Baffled police credit at least two more women's murders to the elusive slayer and report having no valid suspects today, 20 years after the crimes.
