By chance, I came across Wikipedia’s Featured Article today on the Murder of Julia Martha Thomas – and what a strange tale it is! In 1879 Julia was murdered by her maid (below) who disposed of the body by dismembering it, boiling the flesh off the bones, and throwing most of the remains into the River Thames. She may have even offered parts of the deceased to her neighbors. How sweet.
