The Murder of Muriel McKay

A toy pig captured in a 3D-printed device rotating by a gear and electric motor. Based on the true story of the kidnapping and murder of 55-year-old Muriel McKay by Arthur and Nizamodeen Hosein on or near Rooks Farm in Stocking Pelham, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom in 1969. The Hoseins had mistaken Mrs McKay for Anna Murdoch, wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch. It was never established what happened to Mrs McKay, though there was speculation that the Hoseins fed her to their pigs.
