My sheep is 'The Midget'. He was born in July 1986, in Chicago or Milwaukee. He stood 5' 4" and was found mentally subnormal by psychologists, even though he led more than a hundred successful crimes and the Chicago police had a special Fernekee task force to hunt him down. He studied etching at the Art Institue and bomb making at the Crerar Library in Chicago, and ran a successful child care nursery. But his true genius was in relieving banks of their depositor's money. Credited by police of nicking close to 1 million dollars during his twenty year career, he was also a tad trigger happy - three to five bank presidents or clerks.

In 1935, while serving a life sentence, he escaped from Joliet prison, vowing never to return. He was a man of his word, for when he was captured two months later, he drank a vial of cyanide, dying moments later.
