The Criminal of the CenturyBy Rachael Weaver
On 4 March 1892 Melbourne newspapers carried sensational reports of the discovery, under a hearthstone of a suburban villa, of the decomposed, naked, bound body of a woman. A frantic police search led to the arrest of Frederick Bailey Deeming, jewel thief, swindler, bigamist, conman, forger — and mass murderer. This is the incredible story of one of Australia's most enigmatic killers.
