From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hendrik Jut (July 19, 1851 – June 12, 1878) was a murderer from The Hague. He killed two people and gained notoriety in the country comparable to Lizzie Borden in the United States or William Palmer in Britain.

He has become a part of Dutch folk culture and a carnival "strength tester" called the "Kop van Jut" (Head of Jut, hitting a block with a large mallet, causing a bell to be rung if the blow is powerful enough) is said to be named for him.[1] His head was kept in a jar and was long on display in an anatomical museum attached to Groningen University but apparently was discarded after the bottle started leaking. There is however a cast of his head still extant.
