    In the episode “Small Potatoes” Scully is seen examining at a tabloid with the lead story about monkey babies. Monkey babies were probably not the explanation for this true life unsolved crime....

    Evanston Illinois 1913, Irene Grosvenor Wheelock, respected and well published ornithologist was startled awake one night by a rattling noise. She was lying in bed and sprung up to hear a chattering noise and see an animal dive out the open window! The Wheelock's servant, Rose had a similar experience. Irene woke her husband Harry Bergen Wheelock. When they investigated they found her Jewelry tray had been moved from the dresser to the window sill.

    There was little doubt that the Wheelocks were almost the victim of a monkey filling the role of cat burglar! There was no word if the monkey was dressed in people's clothes. Mrs. Wheelock's waking when she did is the only explanation for the failing to grab the loot that had been so deftly piled upon the windowsill.
