13A Finborough Road.<br />
<br />
Ronald True was an alcoholic and drug addict who visited prostitute Olive Young at her home 13A Finsborough Road, Fulham.<br />
<br />
She refused to speak to him again after he stole five pounds from her handbag despite his persistent phone calls.<br />
<br />
He turned up at the door of her basement flat out of the blue, on March 5th 1922 and killed her by beating her several times with a rolling pin before taking her jewellery and money.<br />
<br />
When True came across Olive's maid in the morning he told her she was sleeping, but she went inside and found the body.<br />
<br />
She went to the police who arrested True, despite him putting on an upper-class accent and saying he was a 'different' Robert True.<br />
<br />
He was found guilty of the wilful murder of Olive Young, whose real name was Gertrude Yates, and was committed to Broadmoor. <br />
<br />
He died from a heart attack in 1951 in the medical ward of the psychiatric hospital.
