Description.. The head of Diogo Alves (1810-1841), one of the most famous portuguese serial-killers and one of the last criminals to be sentenced to death in Po

The head of Diogo Alves (1810-1841), one of the most famous portuguese serial-killers and one of the last criminals to be sentenced to death in Portugal. He would kill his victims by attacking them at the top of the Águas Livres Aqueduct, in Lisbon, and throwing them off of it - a 65m (213 feet) fall to their death.

Sources from 1837 say he killed more than 70 people.

Initially seen as a rather strange suicide spree, Alves method was given away when he killed 4 people from the same family.

He was hung and his head was kept in formol so his condition (his “evil nature") could be studied.

"We suspected nothing when the first three members of the family committed suicide within the space of three days, but when on the forth day the 1 year old baby jumped off the same cliff... Well, let's just say some of us started getting a little suspicious."

Clearly the lack of eyebrows is what makes a man crazy. There is no other explanation.

Wow he looks so normal, by which I mean I expected people from the 1800s to look slightly different, not sure why.

PD: The only purpose of the preservation of the head is for us to write **** on its picture.
