Is any of these sentences correct?

There must be something happened in the past that traumatized him.

There must have been something happened in the past that traumatized him.

And;

Do I need to add 'that' after 'something'?

Like, There (must be or must have been) something that happened in the past that traumatized him.

There must have been something that happened in the past that traumatized him.

To me the first sentence has mixed tenses: "be" conflicts with "in the past".

  • How about adding that after something? Or is there other way to say it?
