Detective Robert Bunch (portrayed by Dane Rhodes) was investigating the murder of Eudora Tattler but hit a snag when his prime suspects took it on the lam. Luckily for him, his lawman's intuition led him to follow the big road sign advertising a Two-Headed Girl at the Freak Show. However, his attempt to arrest the girls was thwarted by Jimmy Darling, who slit his throat with a razor and, with help from his fellows, dismembered and buried his body.

It was with Bunch's badge that Jimmy attempted to frame Dell Toledo, who turned the tables and sent Meep to his death in jail.

After a failed suicide attempt, Twisty returns to murder Mr. Hanley. He cuts Mr. Hanley's head off and leaves his severed head on a shelf to be discovered by a clerk the next day.
