Horrific murders, unbelievable disappearances, frightening supernatural events … Moreover, the smoke curtain over many of these events, which left all of humanity with huge question marks, has not cleared until today. One of the most mysterious events in history occurred many years ago on Somerton Beach in South Australia. A person was found on the beach that day. Moreover, this person will soon be remembered as one of the most mysterious people in history. So much so that the man could not be identified, so he became known as the Somerton Man…
Some have suggested that the Somerton mystery man was a murder victim. According to some, he committed suicide. Some in Australia believed that the Somerton man was a Soviet spy. For some people she was a ballerina or a dancer! Many theories have been put forward about the identity of this mysterious man, the cause of his death, and what he did. However, no one dared to comment on Ömer Khayyam’s poem that came out of Somerton Man… Here’s what you need to know about Somerton Man, one of the most enigmatic people in history…
In December 1948, an interesting man appeared on Somerton Beach in South Australia.
He was dressed in a suit, tie and shiny shoes. She looked very elegant. But there was something strange about his behaviour. He sat almost motionless on the shore. Those who saw him thought he was drunk or asleep, so they didn’t want to go near him. However, the regulars at Somerton Beach found this dapper and odd-looking gentleman in the same place the next day, in exactly the same way. Those who dared to approach this strange man came across a solidified corpse instead of a mysterious man! This is how this story began, starring one of the most mysterious people in history…
When the police searched the mystery man, they found a pack of cigarettes, an old train ticket, a box of matches, and two combs.
No documents were found regarding the identity of the man, who appeared to be between 40 and 50 years old. Moreover, the police teams did not find any clues about the mysterious man that could help them identify him. For example, the labels on his clothes appear to have been cut off on purpose. The Australian authorities launched extensive studies to identify the mysterious man.
In the ensuing operation, an unclaimed suitcase turns up at a nearby train station. According to the authorities, this bag belonged to the man Somerton. However, the items found in the bag were not enough to identify the mysterious man. In fact, the man’s DNA samples were sent to many different countries in the future. However, no significant results were obtained. This mysterious man, who has not yet been identified, has been dubbed the “Somerton Man”.
The cops could not find any useful information on the Somerton man. But doctors do have a few things to say about this mysterious man!
According to this, Somerton Man died shortly before he was found on the beach. In addition, doctors were considering the possibility that Somerton Man was poisoned, although they could not definitively prove it. However, it was not possible to determine whether he was poisoned by someone else or by himself. Because of this, the cause of death of the mysterious man also gave rise to many different theories…
According to some, the Somerton man was killed. According to some, he died naturally. However, just like his identity, the cause of death of the mysterious man was not completely known.
The failure to open a smoke screen on Somerton Man has led to new allegations.
The most interesting of these allegations was about the Somerton man’s career. Some have suggested that this mysterious man was a ballet dancer or dancer. Because, according to the doctors who examined the Somerton Man, the man’s legs were much stronger than those of the average person. Of course, this claim has not been confirmed. Moreover, there were those who saw the possibility of a Somerton man as a ballet dancer very low. Such a mysterious man could only be a spy, or even a Soviet spy…
The cops have discovered that the mysterious man has a secret compartment in his pants! Inside this secret part, a piece of paper was found with the words “OK Shud” (Done), torn from the last page of Omar Hayam’s book “Rubiller”.
Thus, the mysterious event became known as the “OK Shud Affair”. However, this unusual piece of evidence would only make the case more interesting…
Australian police were able to find the book from which the piece of paper with OK Shud was cut
Moreover, on the back cover of the book, there was a phone number and letters whose meaning could not be deciphered. By tracing her phone number, the police got to a woman named Jessica, who lives near Somerton Beach. The woman vehemently denied knowing the mysterious man. However, at the same time, he displayed a very suspicious demeanor. However, the authorities had no evidence that they could link Jessica to the Somerton man…
The mystery of the letters on the back cover of Rupiler’s book, thought to have been written by the Somerton man, has never been solved. However, many people believed that these messages were some kind of encrypted message. Thus, the allegations that the Somerton man was a Soviet spy are getting louder…
Somerton Man, with all his unknowns, was buried in the cemetery in 1949.
Many people in Australia have continued to come up with different theories about the most mysterious man in the world. However, these theories have not been proven. And so the Somerton man took his place on the dusty shelves of history until 2022!
The Somerton Man’s tomb was revealed in 2022, according to a new study
University of Adelaide professors Derek Abbott and American forensic expert Colin Fitzpatrick decided to use the power of science to uncover the mystery about the Somerton man!
According to the results of the DNA analysis, the duo suggests that the mystery man might be someone named Carl Webb. It is known that Webb was born in 1905 and worked as an electrical engineer before his death. However, even recognizing that Somerton Man is Carl Webb is not enough to open the veil of mystery over this mysterious event. Because Webb has no death record. It is also still unknown why he came to Somerton Beach, and if he died, how he died. After all, the Somerton Man remains one of the most mysterious people in the world, despite new discoveries…
