We're filled in on a famous local story. You see, the Riddle House was once inhabited by the snobby Riddle family, which consisted of the elderly Mr. and Mrs. Riddle as well as their grown son Tom. One morning fifty years ago, all three Riddles were found dead. While the villagers regarded the Riddles as {{Asshole Victim}}s, they were nevertheless concerned about there being a murderer on the loose. Pretty soon, the Riddles' young gardener, WorldWarII veteran Frank Bryce, was ConvictedByPublicOpinion and his story about seeing a mysterious dark-haired teenage boy near the Riddle House on the night in question was soundly disbelieved. However, the autopsy failed to discern any way in which the Riddles could have been murdered, so the police were forced to let Frank go due to lack of evidence that the Riddles had, in fact, been murdered.

Frank is sufficiently creeped out by Voldemort's callousness and accurately concludes that he's a madman. Frank decides he will just have to confront his fear of the police and go to the telephone box in the village, but he remains frozen to the spot. It's at this point that Nagini slithers up to Frank and then past him into the room. Voldemort learns of Frank's presence after speaking to Nagini in Parseltongue and Wormtail brings Frank into the room. Frank sees Wormtail and Nagini, but Voldemort is in an armchair facing away from him. Frank asks that Voldemort face him "like a man" and Voldemort, though boasting that he is "much more than a man", agrees. Wormtail turns the chair around and Frank is [[TheUnreveal horrified by whatever he sees]]. Frank is then killed by a flash of green light from Voldemort's wand.
