11. The biggest tragedies are the ones that include children. In 1996, a 6-year-old child beauty pageant queen, JonBenet Ramsey, was brutally murdered in her home in Boulder, Colorado. Her tragic death remained a mystery till this day. Ramseys parents said they received a ransom note just eight hours before her body was found in the basement of her home. The alleged kidnappers demanded $118,000 in exchange for their daughter. However, JonBenets parents and her older brother were also considered suspects at various times. In 2000, they published a book, The Death of Innocence.
