Now we’re left with these unsolved historical mysteries that the world has just deemed to be lost causes. Here are some of the most famous ones.

A Spy Or A Broken Heart?
The Tamám Shud case, also known as the Mystery of the Somerton Man is one of Australia’s most mysterious unsolved cases. It’s the story of a man who was randomly found dead on a park bench on a cold December night in 1848. What’s strange about it is that no one could uncover the cause of death. Although the blood was found in his stomach, usually a sign of poison, all tests showed no injures or unnatural causes. It gets worse.
While some assume the man had died voluntarily, investigators found a piece of paper that read “Tamám Shud” which in Persian means “it is finished.” These words were ripped from the final page of a 12th-century poetry book where two phone numbers and a code were also written. Yet, not even the greatest detective could crack the code.
Some think the man was a spy who knew too much and others say he took his own life to heal his broken heart. Yet, no one knows who the man is and his DNA is nowhere to be found in a database.
