A week later, on April 25, 1935, Bert Hobson announced the great appearance of the tiger shark in the middle of an aquarium full of people excited to witness the event.

After a few minutes and in the middle of the show, the shark began to make sudden movements, to throw itself against the glass of the tank and to swim in circles faster and faster.

Suddenly, in the middle of a dense foam that visitors described as reddish and black, the shark vomited a bird, followed by a rat and, finally, a human left arm, which was identified until the moment when the foam dispersed in water.

The arm had a particular tattoo of two boxers in a ring and a rope tied around the wrist. However, it was free of shark bite marks.

As expected, the event caused terror among visitors and endless investigations by the corresponding authorities.

A few days later and after having made public a photograph of the tattoo, the police received a call from James Smith’s brother, a boxing fan bookmaker, thief, police informant who had been missing for several weeks and owner of the arm that was inside the shark.

Investigating Smith’s latest movements, Australian police detained Patrick Brady, the man James spent his last day of life with, blaming him for his murder.

However, Brady singled out Reginald Holmes, with whom Smith worked to smuggle drugs from passing ships, for questioning by police.

After this, Holmes took one of his boats and staged a chase with the police, where he shot himself in the head and managed to survive.

When he was taken to the hospital and searched, he said that he was attacked at his home and mistook the police for thieves, which is why he tried to flee.

One night before the trial, Holmes was found dead and shot three times in the body, prompting speculation that he himself had hired a hitman and committed suicide.

Due to the absence of the ‘star’ witness, the case was closed shortly thereafter, as Brady’s attorney claimed that an arm cannot prove that murder was committed.

In this way, Brady was released without any type of conviction and the body of James Smith was never located, however this fact caused the commotion of all the assistants who could observe when the vomit shark the human arm.
