The Legrasse Fragment by vonmeer The Legrasse Fragment by vonmeer
"On November 1, 1907, Inspector Legrasse had led a party of policemen in search of several women and children who disappeared from a squatter community. The police found the victims' "oddly marred" bodies being used in a ritual that centered around the statuette: almost 100 men – all of a "very low, mixed-blooded, and mentally aberrant type" – were "braying, bellowing, and writhing" and repeatedly chanting the phrase, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn".

 After killing five of the participants and arresting 47 others, Legrasse interrogated the prisoners and learned "the central idea of their loathsome faith": "They worshiped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men...and...formed a cult which had never died...hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R'lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him"- The Wikipedia

This fragment was collected with the evidence but soon disappeared, only to appear in a private collection in 1921.

 It came from the home of one of the cultists who died, and was a vase of perhaps German design. It contained a supply of odd golden coins of unknown origin buried within human ash to hide them. Unfortunately when it was lifted, the heavy weight caused the vases bottom to fall out and the entire work cracked apart.  A few pieces were recovered, but disappeared from a clerical error soon afterwards.
