Gracie 2 ditë më parë
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

Theory 1 is pretty much the most plausible. One fell into the sea, the others attempted to rescue him and then fell in themselves, possibly during a sweltering of waves from the intense winds of the North Sea. Why were the bodies never found? It's the ocean, they sank and were eaten by crabs and hagfish, most bodies in the sea remain there.

The answer to the mystery is very simple. One of the men killed and ate the others, then ate himself.

Couldn't pirates have just landed on the island and kidnapped them? That's the only realistic theory besides the violent lighthouse keeper killing them and then committing suicide. Also, they could have all been at the tackle box and got hit by a wave simultaneously.

maybe the men conspired to leave together is some kind of plan...those men need to be investigated deeply as I think they all did this together with a well planned out scheme. And as far as the sheep go--could be some type of marine life that washes up on the grass that contains a hormone booster and when the sheep eat this they give birth to twins.

There’s actually a super cool movie based off this mystery It goes for the more romanticised speculation (and goes for 2 keepers father than 3) and hints of the mermaid thing plus going mad It’s just called “The Lighthouse” and it’s really cool and vintage looking (in all black and white, almost square framing, etc) It also has Robert Patterson.... (Oh- and you should probably put on subtitles watching it because thems accents are THICC and *hard to understand*)

Wait a minute i had this story on my english comprehension test, its was from the light keepers point if view and about a massive wave about to hit the lighthouse that they tried to stop (unsuccessfully). Was it this light house? Am i mistaken ? Also i think one of them tried to murder the other.
