"The Demon Barber of Fleet Street." Presumably, he was a barber and serial
killer who plied his trades in London around 1800, met the nubbing-ken at
the Old Bailey and the nubbing-cheat at Tyburn in 1802. Body disposal was
carried out by his sweetheart (with a different name for every version of
the tale) by turning them into meat pies--finest kind.
Since there are no records of persons, trials or executions, Todd is
probably the figment of a penny dreadful author from around 1846.
