"Burking." The process of killing poor people and selling their bodies for medical study in 19th century London. (The body is in the basket on the man's shoulder). Occasionally the medical men they delivered too would perceive the body as being too fresh (never buried...grave robbing was one thing, murder another) and alert authorities.
