Early life

William Fagen Higginson unmasked

Prof. Higginson unmasked.

The Headless Snowman was believed to be the ghost of a robber named Blackjack Brody, who robbed Professor Higginson's great-grandfather of his gold. After stealing the gold, Brody was being hunted down by the villagers of Winter Hollow, so he hid the gold in a chimney. But when it came to surviving the elements, such as a snowstorm, luck wasn't on his side, and when the snowstorm came, the robber froze to death, being imprisoned as a snowman. After the villagers of Winter Hollow dug him out of the snowman, they buried him in the cemetery of Winter Hollow. Legend now said that Blackjack Brody arose from the grave every Christmas Eve to search for the gold he had stolen.
