John Haigh was born in 1909 in Stamford, England, to a religious family with strict traditions…but from very early on, he didn’t fit in. As a child, Haigh was a habitual rule-breaker and prankster at school. While most children grow out of their rebellious stage, Haigh never did. It wasn’t long until he was committing “Haigh”-nous crimes (I couldn’t resist that one) which would ultimately lead to his capture and execution.
