I’d like to tell you the story of a collector. This isn’t your average collector. Stamps, dolls, beer cans, none of these mundane items appear to him. No, he’s a collector of an entirely different sort. This man collects corpses.
In August of 1987, Harrison “Marty” Graham had been living in his North Philadelphia apartment for about four years. On August 9 Marty was evicted because of horrific odors emanating from his third floor apartment. When his landlord’s son was unable to open Marty’s bedroom to clear out the unit, Philadelphia police were called to investigate. What they saw through a keyhole on the other side of Marty’s bedroom door was too gruesome to be believed.
