In the real case of ‘The Corpse Collector’, Graham was evicted from his apartment the landlord. The landlord sent his son and nephew to check out the apartment. The two men discovered a boarded-up-room, when they looked through the key hole they saw not only trash, but the legs of a dead woman. After the cops cleared the room they discovered the bodies of seven women in different states of decomposition. Graham fled and was on the run for only a week before he turned himself in to police. He was deemed incompetent to stand trial due to autism, but the judge still sentenced him to execution on seven counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of abusing a corpse, in April of 1988.
