From a Scottish newspaper

Just a tidbit today. I found it kinda' interesting--to know that the same thing happens all around the world.

It was 184 years ago today, the Red Barn murder took place at Polstead, Suffolk. Maria Marten was slain by one of her lovers. William Corder buried Marten beneath the barn floor, and she lay there until her stepmother dreamed of the incident and her father dug up the floor to discover the body. Corder was found guilty and hanged before a crowd of 7,000 people.
