13A Finborough Road.
Ronald True was an alcoholic and drug addict who visited prostitute Olive Young at her home 13A Finsborough Road, Fulham.
She refused to speak to him again after he stole five pounds from her handbag despite his persistent phone calls.
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.
When True came across Olive's maid in the morning he told her she was sleeping, but she went inside and found the body.
She went to the police who arrested True, despite him putting on an upper-class accent and saying he was a 'different' Robert True.
He was found guilty of the wilful murder of Olive Young, whose real name was Gertrude Yates, and was committed to Broadmoor.
He died from a heart attack in 1951 in the medical ward of the psychiatric hospital.
