Goodbye, Ms. Godfrey

Posted by Patrick Valenza on

In May of 1922, Ms. Jane Godfrey, a beloved teacher at the old Fenwwod Schoolhouse, collapsed suddenly and died while teaching her class.

While no cause of death was immediately apparent, it was later rumored that she had been deliberately poisoned by one of her students during recess.
The town's suspicions focused on 11 year old Oliver Irving, a boy who had been horribly disfigured just three years earlier in a barn fire.
Although no one could prove the boy's guilt, they still never doubted the his involvement in Ms. Godfrey's senseless murder.

Oliver Irving , A.K.A. "Burn Boy", mocks his victims.
