The man known as Ice Box Bob became a serial killer, killing runaways for years. He was eventually caught, sentenced to death and died in the electric chair after being sentenced to death for murder.
After Bob's death a business man named Schenker legally bought the corpse of Ice Box Bob and displayed it outside his grocery store. His son inherited the store and used to have the corpse out on display on holidays, but he had to stop doing so when people began to complain.
Bob's spirit was imprisoned in another dimension, which he could only leave if somebody else took his place there so Bob could return to Earth and become human again. At some point Mr. Schenker, who owned Bob's corpse, became possessed by Bob's spirit, who then continued his killing spree.
