This is the Buckley Family. The children’s names were Susan and John. As a Halloween joke, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get a dummy and pretend to chop its head off. The Buckley children thought it would be hilarious to actually murder their mother, so when the kids walked up the the door, they got an axe and slaughtered her. Once everyone figured out what they had really done, they called the police, but the kids were long gone. The only picture of them was this photo, taken by a trick-or-treater. The mother’s body was later found half eaten.*
*This story is Internet fiction. It has been a popular myth and has been featured on many websites to be true. It is not. It’s just a Halloween picture with a scary story attached. Think rationally - headless photography was extremely popular and was considered a form of humor in the late 19th century. Don’t be naive and believe everything you read on the Internet.
