  1. There is a lot more to the story of Lloyd Magon than was reported in the Logansport Tribune. For a fuller account, which includes the fact that the protagonist, having failed to kill himself with a revolver, then tried to slash his own throat; had with him a volume of Poe's stories turned to "The Telltale Heart;" lived in that squatter's hut with a practitioner of voodoo and believed himself under a voodoo curse at the time of his attempted suicide, see:
