Snyder and her lover murdered her husband Albert for his life insurance, by garroting him and stuffing his nose with chloroform-soaked rags.

  • #repost @deathunderglass ・・・ Image: two unidentified victims of the Cocoanut Grove, November 28, 1942. Today is the 75th anniversary of a tragic event that would change fire safety laws in the US forever. On November 28th, 1942, a night club in Boston called the Cocoanut Grove went up in flames. The club was a one-and-a-story meandering building full of dancefloors, bar, and lounges, all of which had walls and ceilings lined with dark blue satin canopies and heavy drapes, with rattan and bamboo lining the walls. It was a hopping place – that night, it’s estimated that over a 1000 people crammed into a building meant for no more than 460. The fire started in the dark basement, possibly from a match light by a busboy so he could fix a lightbulb, or maybe from the ignition of highly flammable and substandard gas refrigerant. The fake palm tree decorations and drapes caught fire, and the flames moved so fast that patrons fled upstairs with their hair literally on fire. Nearly all of the exits were locked or hidden, and a revolving door at the club's maon entrance became jammed with bodies. Within 5 minutes the club was rife with flames and 492 people were dead, overcome by smoke inhalation or burned to death. Some were found seated at tables with drinks in hand, dead before they could make a move to escape. And that, @deathunderglass-ers, is why revolving doors in public places are always flanked by a regular set of doors that open outward, flammable decorations are banned, and exit signs are illuminated and required to have an independent source of electricity. Investigators suggested that simply having exit doors that swung outward and not inward might have saved as many as 300 lives. Yes, safety laws requiring buildings to comply with fires codes can be onerous – but so is fleeing for your life with your hair in flames. Remember to thank your local fire chief not only for fighting fires, but also for enforcing codes enacted in the wake of Cocoanut Grove. #forensic #pathology #deathunderglass #autopsy #fire #smokeinhalation #disaster #cocoanutgrove
