    Herman Muddgett the 1890's Chicago serial-killer was doing just that, selling skeletons to medical schools, no questions asked.
    His "inventory walked into his "Murder Mansion" as women answering his newspaper ads in the lonely hearts section and of course they had to have some money he could appropriate.
    His custom built multi-storied house full of holding cells, gas chanbers slides for body movement from the top floor to the basement, doors that went nowhere was the urban myth "Haunted House" in my opinion. While he was on trial his house was opened for tours, 25 cents!
    There you go. Now you know.
    The neighbors burnt it down shortly afterward and a US post office took it's place.
    I wonder if they have a "Dead Letter " room in there?
    Estimates as high as 100 as far as the number of victims he killed there.
    Gee! I wonder if the old medical school skeleton I have could be.....?
    Naw! Probably not......Where's the Oui-Ja board?

    Got a book about that case. Truly chilling. Mainly got the book since it was about the 1893 World's Fair.
    The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.

    There was a novel last year called "The Devil In The White City" which related the history of the case. ...

    That is the book, Warren. A helluva read.

    If nothing else, it was interesting to note that Walt Disney was influenced by tales of the World's Fair since his dad was a carpenter on it. Epcot is pretty much his own version of it, when you think about it...
