The Roby Murders
From Tatters of the King
On October 14th 1926, Herbert Roby and his adult daughter Georgina were murdered at their home in Curzon St, Mayfair.
Mr Roby, a retired diplomat, was killed by a deep wound to the upper chest and completely exsanguinated, though almost no trace of his blood was found at the scene.
Georgina was killed by 2 or 3 blows from a large sharp implement, such as an axe, and bled profusely.
The information above comes from newspaper reports and the statement of Dr Lionel Trollope, and police and family members may have more details, as yet unknown to the investigators.
Dr. Bartlett has concluded that Roby attempted to summon creatures such as the Springer Mound Monsters in order to kill his father and that the creature or creatures got out of hand. He has no real evidence for this outlandish speculation.
