Joseph Carey Merrick


House of Cards Church made by Merrick

Joseph Cary Merrick (August 5, 1862 – April 11, 1890), AKA "The Elephant Man," was severely disfigured from a congenital disorder. He is perhaps one one the most famous freaks ever. He died in 1890 from suicide. He was told by doctors that he could never lie down or he would die. He later lied down to go to sleep and broke his neck. It is only rumored that Michael Jackson bought his bones.
