Please do not restore the section (which has been deleted multiple times for lack of evidence) on the supposed "historical crime" / inspiration for the story unless evidence is provided that the story / urban myth specifically has origins in this particular case. For example, if there is an interview with one of the first filmmakers to use the story that cites the Christman murder as inspiration. Without a source, it is merely idle speculation to claim any connection between the tow.
