According to the book The Beat Generation in New York by Bill Morgan, the novel And the hippos were boiled in their tanks was based upon the killing of David Kammerer who was obsessed with Lucien Carr. Carr stabbed Kammerer to death in a drunken fight, in self defense by some accounts, then dumped Kammerer’s body into the Hudson River. Carr later confessed the crime to Burroughs and Kerouac, neither of whom reported the crime to the police.
