Police are investigating the death of well known aristocrat and scientist Baron Derek von Frankenstein after a body was found in the grounds of his castle.
Neighbours telephoned the police after the Baron had been involved in an altercation earlier in the evening with a group of irate villagers brandishing pitchforks and flaming torches.
Eyewitness Ingrid von Pitt claimed that the Baron had suffered taunts and abuse from villagers for years especially whenever a buxom young girl went missing from the local area.
"He was a harmless eccentric" she told our reporter. "He was a shy man. He only ever ventured out at night, with his cousin Igor. They would just go to the churchyard when it was really foggy, to pay respect at the graves of recently buried villagers, often taking shovels to help fill in the graves in secret."
Police Constable Vincent von Price confirmed that there was a gang of villagers outside the castle but that Baron Derek was not attacked.
Local innkeeper Ralph Batesoff has been arrested in connection with the incident.
Frankenstein found dead in castle grounds.
