1. Morgan Joyce Varn 

Morgan Joyce Varn, 24, was arrested for kidnapping and armed robbery. She was supposed to be just another criminal until her mugshot took the internet. This scary black-eyed devil woman with blonde hair earned a lot of comments and shares online. The readers were mostly shocked by the small heart tattoo on her cheek and glassy eyes. 

Varn was accused of being illegally armed in her North Carolina home, caught in possession of a stolen gun, robbing a man of his phone and money. She is being held in Lancaster County prison without bond.

2. Noel Dawson Jr

Noel Dawson Jr, 63, an Ohio man, was arrested for charging at his son with a hatchet and almost hitting him. His weird mugshot was taken with a maniacal, twisted grin and a greasy, grey mullet that falls and passes his shoulders. His eyebrows and blue crazy eyes give him a sinister look. Isn’t it just terrifying?

4. Brandy Lerma

Admit it, you can't look at her face more than a second without feeling the chills.
