A Devon mystery
I scour the ends of the Internet to bring you, the faithful readers of The Mystery of the Haunted Vampire, the best stories possible for this site. Sometimes, like this story in the BBC, I'm fortunate to find the perfect stories, combining mystery, a long-dead corpse and a setting worthy of a Sherlock Holmes' tale.
For the record, I highly doubt Conan Doyle committed murder as the historian seems to imply.
Proposals to exhume a body in a graveyard in Devon have been rejected by the parish church committee.
The exhumation was planned to solve a mystery surrounding the true author of the Hound of the Baskervilles. A local historian has suggested that Victorian journalist Bertram Fletcher-Robinson penned the original story and not Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The historian claims the journalist was poisoned, but the committee has unanimously rejected an exhumation.
