"War turned him funny, if you ask me."
—The landlord on Frank Bryce[src]

The landlord of The Hanged Man (fl. 1943) was a Muggle man who ran the Hanged Man pub in Little Hangleton.


The Riddle murders

The night the Riddles were murdered, in the summer of 1943, his pub was filled with villagers who wanted to gossip about the murders. After the Riddles' cook entered the pub, bringing the news of the arrest of Frank Bryce, the landlord commented that the war turned Bryce funny, perhaps hinting that he believed the gardener was guilty of the murders of his employers.[1]
