Boycott eventually wrote a letter to The Times who publicised this 'victimisation' and soon troops and constables were sent to Lough Mask to harvest the crops. This amounted to £10,000 of cost to the British government in order to harvest about £500 worth of crops.
Boycott left Ireland for Suffolk less than a month after the 'Boycott' had started.

This event was complete with what looked like a pillar of fire streaking across the sky.
No doubt this would have seemed quite 'biblical' for those living nearby but across the world a different perspective of the event provides an answer.
Throughout the night skies across America and Europe hundreds of thousands of shooting stars rained across the skies for several hours.
The cause – every 33 years the earth passes through the tail of the Temple – Tuttle comet creating the most brilliant of light shows.

Worden is soon discovered to be missing and her son, a deputy, suspected Gein as he had run into Gein the day previously. Gein had told the deputy that he would be by the store for some antifreeze the next day – the last receipt written at the stores register before Wordens disappearance was for antifreeze.
Police descended on the Gein property – Gein was known to be a little odd, especially after his mother had died some years before hand – and there they discovered a most grisly scene...
Bernice Wordens body was found in the Gein barn, hanging upside down from a meat hook. She had been dressed and gutted much like one would a deer. The body was essentially free of blood and had obviously been washed out.
It is not entirely certain how many people Gein killed, but murder was far from his only crime as he also liked to dig up corpses from the local cemetery – corpses of women that resembled his dead mother...
Gein was tried and found not guilty for reasons of insanity and placed in a secure hospital for the criminally insane. He was tried again in 1968 where he was found guilty of first degree murder but was also found to be legally insane.
