True story, but who’d believe it?
As Inspector at Scotland Yard, I saw lots of strange and bizarre things. For example, we had a case of where a man killed his wife, cut her up and threw parts of her off the train. He kept the head, burned it in his fireplace —- when suddenly, due to the heat —- the eyes began to open.
He ran out of his bungalow screaming. He later confessed to the whole lot and was convicted and hanged for it.
I had a conversation about this with a one Mr. Hitchcock who got inspired to make a movie on it —- Rear Window.
