Thread Name: happy? – Dec 11 (Beadle kills family)
Subject: happy? – Dec 11 (Beadle kills family)
12/11/1782: Having logically deduced this world is so bad that the next one has to be better, William Beadle killed his wife, children and himself. The inquest jury declared him sane & punished his corpse

        A bloody scene I'll now relate,
        Which lately happened in a neighb'ring state,
        A murder of the deepest dye, I say,
        O be amaz'd! For surely well you may.
