THE CASE OF EDWARD MORDRAKE: FACT OR FICTION?

Some good Saturday reading for a cloudy day.. The curious case of Edward Mordrake.   That is supposedly an image of him. He also reportedly had a face on the back of his head that did not talk, but would laugh and cry. Also, this: He supposedly wanted doctors to remove the ‘demon face’ from the back of his head.. when they did not, it would keep him awake at night and finally he succumbed to suicide due to the extra face.. There is even a book in 1900 that supposedly documented all of this. But is it true?Could this just be one of those weird urban legends that never went away with time? I came across this website, Verum Fabula, which attempts to figure out of this is truth or crap..  There is also debate on the SNOPES forums as to the real story behind this.. It’s certainly medically feasible for it to be true.. but is it true? Forgive me, but I would rarely want to trust a medical book from the 1900s… 
Anything is possible.. even this?
