Man of Mystery

A snippet in the Daily Mail today from a Roger Vince was brought to my attention. Can anyone shed any light on this fact?

"Reading about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's home, Undershaw, reminded me of something an elderly friend told me many years ago.

As a young women, she was friendly with someone who'd worked as a handyman for Conan Doyle at Undershaw. He told her that one of the upstairs rooms was permanently locked, staff were forbidden from entering and Conan Doyle had the only key.

After Conan Doyle's death, curiosity overcame him and he put up a ladder to the window and looked in. It was, he said, completely empty'.Whatever the secret of the locked room, Conan Doyle took it to the grave. Or does anyone know differently"?
