This is a question Black Sheep

Every family has their black sheep, deserved or not. We're still not talking to an uncle who "borrowed" the capital from the family firm, causing it to collapse and leaving my dad out of work for 4 years in his mid 40s. Who aren't you talking to?

Dear god this is a depressing question!
Mine goes back quite a few years - sometime before WW1.

A relative of mine in Australia discovered his wife was having an affair. Apparrently, the Judge would have been willing to accept that hacking her to death with a hatchet was a crime of passion had he not returned a little later to set fire to the remains. This was considered to be going a little too far, and so intead of imprisonment he was hanged.

Every time I tell that story I think back to a "family history" session in high school, and can still see the look of dawning horror my teacher's face! Ahh, memories!
