Death of Matthew Leveson

Matthew John Leveson (12 December 1986 – 23 September 2007[1]) was an Australian man who was last seen leaving a Sydney nightclub on 23 September 2007. He was reported missing by his family after he failed to show up to work. On 27 September, his car was found dumped at Waratah Park Reserve in Sutherland; evidence suggested he did not park it there and police believed he "met with foul play".[2] In August 2008, Leveson's boyfriend, Michael Atkins, was arrested and charged with murder.[3] In October 2009, Atkins was acquitted of murder and an alternative charge of manslaughter, following a four-week trial.[4] In November 2016, the New South Wales Attorney General agreed to an immunity deal with Atkins, which protected him from perjury in exchange for leading police to Leveson's remains. The search began on 10 November, but was called off on 17 November, after no leads were found. Police resumed searching on 25 May 2017 and discovered Leveson's remains on 31 May.

Paul Bateson (born August 24, 1940) is an American former radiographer and convicted murderer. He appeared as a radiological technologist in a scene from the 1973 horror film The Exorcist, which was inspired when the film's director, William Friedkin, watched him perform a cerebral angiography the previous year. The scene, with a considerable amount of blood onscreen, was, for many viewers, the film's most disturbing scene;[1] medical professionals have praised it for its realism.[2][3] In 1979, Bateson was convicted of the murder of film industry journalist Addison Verrill and sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in prison; in 2003 he was released on parole, which ended after five years. Prior to Bateson's trial, police and prosecutors implicated him in a series of unsolved slayings of gay men in Manhattan, killings he had reportedly boasted about while in jail, bringing it up at his sentencing.[4] However, no additional charges ever were brought against him. The experience inspired Friedkin to make the 1980

Sidney Franklin (bullfighter)

Sidney Franklin (11 July 1903 – 26 April 1976, born Sidney Frumkin) was the first American to become a successful matador, the most senior level of bullfighter. Biography Sidney Franklin was born in Brooklyn, New York to Orthodox Jewish parents.[2] In 1922, he traveled to Mexico City where he would begin a career in bullfighting. He fought bulls in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Colombia, and Panama. Writing on Sidney Franklin in Death in the Afternoon, Ernest Hemingway says, Franklin is brave with a cold, serene and intelligent valor but instead of being awkward and ignorant he is one of the most skillful, graceful and slow manipulators of a cape fighting today. His repertoire with the cape is enormous but he does not attempt by a varied repertoire to escape from the performance of the veronica as the base of his cape work and his veronicas are classical, very emotional, and beautifully timed and executed. You will find no Spaniard who ever saw him fight who will deny his artistry and excellence with the cape.

Roger Senhouse

Roger Henry Pocklington Senhouse (1899 – 1970) was an English publisher and translator, and a peripheral member of the Bloomsbury Group of writers, intellectuals, and artists. The private letters of openly gay writer and Bloomsbury founder Lytton Strachey reveal that Roger Senhouse was his last lover, with whom he had a secretly sado-masochistic relationship in the early 1930s.[1] Senhouse attended both Eton College and Oxford University, where he was friends with Michael Llewelyn Davies, one of the boys upon whom Peter Pan was based, and foster son of J. M. Barrie. Lord Robert Boothby, who was a friend of Senhouse and Davies during that period – and himself bisexual[2][3] – said in a 1976 interview that the relationship between Senhouse and Davies was "fleetingly" homosexual in nature.[4] In 1935, Senhouse became co-owner with Fredric Warburg of the publishing house which became Secker & Warburg, rescuing it from receivership. The firm translated several works by French novelist Colette and The Blood
