When she married him, she was young and happy.

However, what he did to her was so atrocious that you won't dream about it in your worst nightmares.

What was it?

Do all of the "she's" and "her" refer to one person? HAF?
Does the "him" and "he" refer to the same person? HAM?
Is this from a true story?
Was this atrocious "thing" something that was done to her physically? mentally? or emotionally?

Did it make her unhappy? Injured? Sick? Dead? Did he inflict pain? Disfigurement? Could he have done it without being married to her? Is it important which century this happened? Or decade?
Did he do it out of: hate? Love?

Would it only be atrocious if it happened when you were still alive? We have already established it couldn't be done when she was alive.

To avoid speculations and to make it clear, he did not physically do anything more to her corpse than we have established above. The atrocious aspect consisted in something else yet to be revealed.
Did doing this affect anyone else? Yesish Parents? No If so, was this effect positive? Definitely not Negative? Yope

There is one detail relating to her death you have not revealed. But if you can post a brief summary of what happened, I would spoyle all the same.

Is the way she died relevant? Yesish Was he glad that she died? No Did he somehow caused "the accident"? Yesish, with sufficiently vague values of "caused"

Did he done to her something even more atrocious than presenting her corpse as an odd animal? No Or is that it? Basically, yes Or do we need to find out how she died? It is a macabrously interesting piece of information, which makes his deeds even more repugnant. However, I think the key part has been revealed; you can either keep guessing a little bit more about the way she died, or post a short summary of the story without this detail. I will spoyle when you guess the detail or post the summary, whichever is earlier.

Was someone else present when the accident happened? Someone relevant?
Was she accidentally killed by someone who was thinking that she's an animal? If yes, was she killed by a gun? melee weapon? some kind of tool, e.g. pitchfork?

I'll use one of those practical lists you're using around here. :-)

Did she died of:
impact?
electric shock?
the other kind of shock?
laceration?
suffocation or asphyxiation?
burning?
freezing?
heart attack?
allergies?
drowning?
explosion?
radiation?
poison?
a psionic death ray? (very imaginative :D)
laughing to death? (I really doubt about this one, but you never know)
other?

Was the damage that killed her characterized by piercing, crushing or slashing? Very probably neither, yet bleeding was definitely involved.

Alright, so she died by an accident unintentionally caused by another person, right? And this person was the one present when she died? Was there more people present? Or more people responsible for her death?
It was rather unusual death, wasn't it?

Did she die as a result of medical treatment?

Did she die of a disease no unrelated to her...wolfishness? but the cause of her death was not related to her... as you say, at least not directly
Did she die as a result of medical treatment? Probably not.

And, by the way, welcome to the forum!

Internal bleeding?
Or external?
Did the source of "laceration-ish internal injury" come from a tangible solid object?
Multiple objects?
Living animal or organisms?
Liquid?
Gas?
Air pressure?

Did her husband think he was helping her when he indirectly caused her death?

Tangible object = living animal/organism?
Person?
Animal?
Plant?
Part of her own body?

Is her death common by today's standards?
More so by her era's standards?

Time period:
1800's? 1700's? (Insert list of centuries)

Is the third party's occupation relevant?

Died in childbirth?

Yes! And here goes the


***********SPOILER**************

The woman in our puzzle was Julia Pastrana (1834-1860). She suffered from an illness called hypertrichosis – her whole body was covered with straight black hair - had jutting jaw and swollen gums.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Pastrana


However, apart from that, she also possessed a shapely figure, a harmonious voice, spoke three languages, could sew and cook, and was eager to learn new things. She never complained of her situation, she even seemed to be quite happy with it.

She was exhibited as "the marvelous hybrid or bear woman" or "a hybrid between human and orangutan", or even "The Nondescript". During her performances, she sang and danced.

She was showed by a man named Theodore Lent, who finally married her. While she was in deep love with him, he was only using her to earn money and was not kind to her.

At the age of 25, she became pregnant. The doctors feared difficulties at childbirth as Julia was frail and had too narrow hips. On 20 March 1860, she gave birth to a baby boy. He was covered with hair as well as his mother, and lived only thirty-five hours. Julia died five days later of post-birth complications.

Her husband, however, wanted to make profit even after their death. He sold the corpses of his wife and his newborn son to Professor Sukolov of Moscow University. The Professor embalmed the bodies (with extremely lifelike results) and placed them in an anatomical museum. When Theodore Lent heard of the profit his wife and child were earning after their death, he sued Professor Sukolov and forced him to release the corpses. He then went on a tour showing his dead wife dressed in her dancing costume and their baby in a sailor suit.

After many peripeties, he died in a lunatic asylum.

Julia Pastrana’s remains and those of her sons continued touring the world until 1973, then they were placed in storage. In 1976, the baby’s mummy was destroyed by vandals, and in 1979, Julia was stolen. She was re-discovered in 1990, and now rests in peace in a sealed coffin at the Department of Anatomy at The Oslo University.

Very interesting (and bizarre)! I had not heard this story before. I knew there had to be some simple explanation for her death, it just took me a while to put together the pieces.
