Episode 72 - Unpublished Cases: The Abernetty Family

14 minutes

"the dreadful affair of the Abernetty family" [SIXN] 


Among the published cases, there are a handful that can be identified by a simple reference. If we said "a tale for which the world is not yet prepared," you'd say the Giant Rat of Sumatra. 

Similarly, if we mention "the depth to which the butter had sunk on a hot day," you'd think of the Abernetty family, as mentioned in the opening of "The Six Napoleons." But what was going on there? And what have scholars said about it over the years?
