RIP Fanny Adams

Fanny, 8, and her friend Minnie Warner, along with Fanny’s sister Lizzie, aged seven, were out for a walk on Aug. 24, 1867, when they were approached by a man. He gave Minnie one and a half pennies to buy some sweets, and offered Fanny half a penny if she would leave with him. She took the money but declined the offer. She was picked up and carried to a nearby field. Fanny’s head was found on a pole, minus her eyes and ears. Her leg had been cut off and her internal organs removed.
