Mug Shot Monday! Arthur Eggers, 1946Home | Mug Shot Monday | Mug Shot Monday! Arthur Eggers, 1946
Today’s mug shot is taken from “Famous Crimes the World Forgot.” This is Arthur Eggers. In 1946, he was a cuckold who got tired of his younger, dominant wife running around on him. He was coming home late one night when he caught sight of his wife’s lover leaving the house. When he went inside, he found her naked in bed enjoying the afterglow – or whatever you call it. Arthur then grabbed his gun and was going to chase after the man but his wife got in the way and the two fought. During the struggle, the gun “accidentally” went off. He then cut off his wife’s head and hands and dumped her body out in the San Bernardino Mountains near Los Angeles. Although they found the torso, her head has never been located and no one is really sure what happened to it.
The complete story of how he did it, how he tried to get away with it, his wacky behavior, the trial, and his final outcome, are all in the ebook.
If you are inclined to look at gruesome pictures, a photo of his wife’s torso can be found on Google Image Search: Keywords = “Dorothy Eggers.” It’s not a pretty sight and this is my caution/warning.
