into Mystery I#79/2 (fb)-BTS) - The criminal known as the Dummy came up
with the idea to start dressing himself up like a toy and leaving
himself at the doors of unsuspecting victims.
(Journey into Mystery I#79/2) - The Dummy left
himself in front of the door of a family, with a complimentary card on.
The husband took the toy in, where his son enthused that he could now
be a ventriloquist. After the family went to sleep, the Dummy robbed
their safe and fled. He did this several more times. Upon reading in
the newspapers that rich industrialist J.P. Bentley had a
million-dollar necklace in his possession, the Dummy decided the
millionaire would be his next target. He was found on the Bentley porch
by the butler, who brought him in. At night, he tried to steal the
necklace, but was caught by the butler. In the following struggle, the
butler's gun went off, killing the old man. Just then, the police
arrived, having been alerted by a security system. The Dummy pretended
to be a toy while they searched the room, and one of the cops threw the
Dummy in a toy chest and locked it. The Dummy was horrified to find his
options were reduced to yelling for help (and thus being arrested for
murder), or suffocating to death.

Seriously, this guy must have
weighed all of 35 lbs., given the way everyone in the story picks him
up without even straining, including kids his own size!
