New ET entry from me

From me on Executed Today: one Frederick Bailey Deeming, a world traveler and petty thief who moonlighted as a serial killer. He murdered his wife and four children in the UK in 1891 and hid their bodies under his floor, then later that year moved to Australia, remarried, and killed her too. Fortunately he was caught just before he could close his talons around Wife #3.

    I really need to bookmark this site, it’s right up my alley and I always forget about till you make another case. Super interesting, to say the least.

      In some ways I think it is more impressive than my own. The blog has profiled an execution for every calendar day, 365 days a year without letup, since October 2007.

    He killed one of his wives and buried her in the hearth, in their house in the suburb next to mine, here in Melbourne. Being the morbidly fascinated creature I am, I have gone to the place where it happened. The Old Melbourne Gaol (was a real jail, now a museum) has his ‘death mask’ on display. I feel a bit chuffed that you wrote about someone from my neck of the woods 🙂

    I just re-read the end of your article. – you mentioned about the death mask. Duh. Sorry!
