We are currently on our way to New Orleans. We are hunting and searching for new items to add to the museum. During today’s travels we made an enjoyable stop and visited the tomb of President Lincoln. Absolutely one of the most historical figures I’ve gotten to visit. Definitely worth the stop if passing through Springfield, Illinois.

T-shirts are ready. Once I return from our current adventure we will get them packed up, shipped, and in your hands for those that pre ordered.

After extensive research we would like to introduce you to Thom Lee. (Aka Tommie Lee, Tom Lee Young, & Tom Lee) He died at the young age of 24 years old March 9th 1914 in Fort Worth Texas where he was executed by hanging after shooting 5 people and killing two including police officer John Ogletree May 15th 1913. Mr. Lee will be on display with his complete history coming soon.
We would personally like to thank all parties involved in the research. Rocky from Dead Sled Morgue, Kevin Foster co author of Written in Blood (1&2) who is one of the founding members of the Fort Worth police historical society and highly decorated “retired” police veteran. Also to the lady I only know as the Liberian, the two local corners, a local forensic pathologist, the South Dakota state archeological society and the South Dakota state Burial coordinator for the amazing help along this journey.

The Saga of Tom:
In the morning the South Dakota state Burial coordinator will be visiting us at our home to look at the skull in person to confirm wether or not the damages to the skull are consistent with the injuries received while Mr. Lee was trying to flee capture from the police after taking two lives and injuring another with a 12g double barrel shotgun. I personally am extremely entrenched in wanting to know more of the history and ever little detail.

Father Nolan was the priest that spent the final day with Mr. Lee as he awaited his execution. Sheriff William Rea was the Tarrant county Sheriff that presided over Mr. Lee’s execution on March 9th 1914 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The “Saga of Tom” continues:
Today we were contacted by a columnist from the Star Telegram in Fort Worth. It appears they are going to do a story on him and not us along with the two co authors of “Written in Blood” one of wich is a retired detective and police historian, a librarian, and another historian who have all concluded through their research that there is a “high probability” that this is the skull of Tom Lee.
On Tuesday morning the South Dakota state Burial coordinator with the state archeologist will be visiting my house to further investigate the damage to the skull to see if it is consistent with the injuries received prior to his execution in 1914.(I will have the Deadly Grounds coffee the only coffee to die for hot on the pot for their visit) I will post the article and further updates as this unfolds.
To be continued…

So is anyone friends with the county coroner? Or a forensic pathologist? I could really use a discreet favor. I’m willing to buy lunch!

Alfred LeMare Ventriloquist Figure
(1890-1915)
In today's collector world of ventriloquist figures there are a few very rare figures and one is the Alfred LeMare. This builder worked in the 19th century and created his figures of both paper mache and wood. The example you see here is 100% original having never ever been worked on or restored. Even the clothing on him is original to this figure.
This ventriloquist figure is alleged to be haunted. It was recently acquired by us from Spirit Lake, Iowa. We entertained a reasonable offer while in Vegas from a very well know “ghost hunter” for his haunted museum. I put my heart into ever item we select for Abby Normals Museum of the Strange and he will be on display forever moving forward.

As far as him be haunted, we’ll that’s for you to decide.

Do you believe in ghosts?

Wicker coffins or transfer baskets were used to store bodies before being moved for burial or while waiting for a doctor to come pronounce the individual dead. These light weight coffins were especially common during the Civil War as they were easily moved and a lower cost to produce than wooden coffins.

In the Victorian era and post Civil War these coffins were primarily used for viewings, where guests would come pay their final respects to the deceased while their body was placed in the coffin “on view” for the attendees. These wicker coffins were still used up until the 1930s for removing bodies from crime scenes, before bodybags became ubiquitous with that task.

Would you spend the night sleeping in a used body basket?

We would like to introduce everyone to Timmy. Timmy was born with a genetic birth defect called Cyclopia it is the most extreme form of Holoprosencephaly it is a defect characterized by the failure of the embryonic procencephalon to properly separate the orbits of the eye into two separate cavities. It happens in about 1 out of 16k births.
Timmy was recently acquired while attending an Oddities & Curiosities Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. He will be on display in the near future.

The Kapala skull
In Vajrayana Buddhism, the upper cranium of the human skull (kapala) is used for tantric alchemy in which the impurities of mundane passions—namely, the three poisons of ignorance, greed, and delusion—are exorcised and thereby transformed into forces for good, wisdom, and compassion. They are often carved or elaborately mounted with precious metals and jewels.
