Grady F. Stiles, Jr., aka "Lobster Boy," was born in 1937, the sixth in a long line of lobster-men to work as a circus freak. When his eldest daughter was engaged to marry a boy of whom Grady disapproved, Grady shot and killed the boy, but got off with probation. Later, after he retired to the circus-centric town of Gibsonton, he became so abusive to his family that his wife and step-son hired a neighbor to kill him. He was shot to death while watching TV. Everyone involved got prison.
