Hello my loves!
I present you with a hair raising story with only one clue. A piece of paper with the words “Lama’n Shud”. The meaning- It has ended.
I fell in love with this unique story as it leaves the mind open wide for interpretation.
A body of a man was found on Somerton Beach in Australia, 1948. This man was dressed to the nines. A suit, polished shoes, and his head slumped against a wall.
As is customary in searches, authorities first speculated it was a case of heart failure or poisoning. After an autopsy, no trace of poisoning was found.
The tags of his clothes had been removed, there was no wallet and the fingerprints the authorities had taken were unidentifiable. A photo was placed in the newspaper, but with no luck in identifying this man.
The rolled up piece of paper found inside a hidden pocket in his pants was from a rare book called Ruba’ya’t. Police spent months looking for this exact book, finally deciding to bury him without identification. He was embalmed to preserve him and a cast was made of the bust.
A man walked into the police station eight months later claiming g that just after the body was found he found a copy of the rare book in the back of his car which was also parked beside a building at Somerton Beach. The gentleman hadn’t given any thought until reading about it in the paper.
The book had a part of the last page torn out that matched the rolled up piece of paper found in the dead man’s pocket. Inside this book was a phone number and a strange code that still hasn’t been cracked today. The phone number led to a woman who sold the book to a man named Alfred Boxall, who is still very much alive today and still owns the copy of the rare book that he purchased.
Now I ask you, who was this man found on Somerton Beach?
