Shortly after Violet has threatened him for not leaving Martha for her Leonard is found hanged and Umesh,as his sole heir,is arrested. Martha tells Father Brown that she and Leonard had once had a baby,born disfigured,who died and whom they buried in the garden,the event which she believes drove them apart.
