Langley Collyer: Booby Trap


[Eccentric collector and recluse] Langley Collyer was crushed to death in his own home by his own booby trap. While carrying food to his equally reclusive brother Homer, Collyer tripped his burglar trap and was buried under bundles of old newspapers, three breadboxes, a sewing machine, and a suitcase filled with metal. His brother starved to death, and the bodies were not found for three weeks."
