Well I didn’t see this one coming: a UK historian has claimed that the deaths of six people, supposedly due to the ‘curse of Tutankhamun’, were actually ritual murders committed by occultist Aleister Crowley:
Six mysterious London deaths attributed to the “curse of Tutankhamun” were murders by a Satanist called Aleister Crowley, a historian claims in a new book.
…At the time, a frenzied press blamed the “curse” and speculated on the supernatural powers of ancient Egyptians. But author Mark Beynon has now drawn on previously unpublished evidence to conclude the deaths were all ritualistic killings masterminded by Crowley, an occultist called “the wickedest man in the world”.
After unique analysis of Crowley’s diaries, essays and books and inquest reports, the armchair detective argues that he was a killer obsessed with Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror in 1888.
Beynon puts forward his theory in his newly released book London’s Curse: Murder, Black Magic and Tutankhamun in the 1920s West End.
