I was looking at the Pearl Bryan thread and thought the subject of gruesome murders was a fitting subject for a thread, so I'm starting it here. Much as I deplore the taking of a life (as I'm sure you all do too), I have to admit that I'm much like everyone else - fascinated by the gory details. It's ok, of course, when it all happened a long time ago ... I keep telling myself! A few examples: Lizzie Borden, Jack the Ripper (there must be some songs abouthim?), Sweeny Todd (fictional); and not forgetting Sweet Fanny Adams (historical). Any of you closet News of the World (or US equivalent) readers care to add anything?
