Faceless: Five Gruesome Unsolved Murders: Most Mysterious and Headless Unsolved Murders of All Time by Jack Smith
Five of the Most Gruesome Headless Unsolved Murder Cases of All Times
Cold cases are fascinating because they have all the ingredients of a nail-biting murder mystery. Except there's no ending. And what's a book without an ending except an endless source of frustration and speculation?
It's even worse when the victim is unidentified. "Unknown" man/woman/ child murders send a chill through us and can even cause a little sadness. How could a person be so alone in the world that absolutely no one came forward to give them a name and a burial?
This volume examines five instances of a single or serial killing involving victims who were beheaded by their killers:
?The Thames Torso Murders: Known as the "Thames Mysteries" or "Embankment Murders," this series of gruesome killings was overshadowed by the terror surrounding Jack the Ripper's crimes but were also very fascinating.
?The August 8, 1886 discovery of a decomposing male torso outside Wallingford, Connecticut. The victim was never identified, and a woman who claimed that she knew the whole story behind the murder committed suicide.
?The Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run: Between 1935 and 1938, a still-unidentified serial killer murdered and dismembered at least twelve victims in Cleveland, Ohio. All but three remain unidentified. Eliot Ness, the man who was partly responsible for taking down Al Capone, headed the investigations.
?Beth Doe: On December 20, 1976, a young boy made a gruesome discovery on the banks of the Lehigh River in White Haven, Pennsylvania. The dismembered and mutilated remains of a young, white woman and her unborn child had been stuffed into three suitcases and thrown from a bridge along Interstate 80 over the Lehigh River.
?The February 28, 1983 discovery of the headless body of a little girl between the ages of 8 and 11, decomposing in an abandoned home on the north side of St. Louis, MO. Her head was never found. Despite heavy publicity, nobody identified her.
What do these cases have in common, besides the fact that they are cold and involve headless, unidentified victims? Somebody got away with murder...

History of Embalming and of Preparations in Anatomy, Pathology, and Natural History by J.N. Gannal
This is a history of the process of embalming dead bodies, something that people have been doing for thousands of years. From the preface: "I have considered it my duty to give here the details of the composition of the liquids employed, either as baths or injections, by the physician and naturalist; the interest of science imposing on me this obligation. But, as regards embalming, the same motive does not exist; I have consequently abstained from giving in totality the means employed in this operation, reserving to myself the care of this process on the request of families or physicians.
It was not until after many unsuccessful efforts that I succeeded in discovering a method capable of insuring the indefinite preservation of bodies deposited in the earth. A thousand unexpected difficulties arose in my path; and to cite only one, at the end of eight or nine months of preservation, a vegetable production, known to botanists under the name of byssus, for a long time embarrassed me; I tried numerous means, before discovering one capable of suppressing this formation.
The perfection to which I have brought the art of embalming, leaves little to desire. So convinced am I at length of the efficacy of the processes which I employ, that I shall be always ready, at the request of the authorities or of families, to exhume those bodies which I have already embalmed in great numbers, at any expressed period of time."
