  • Sorry, Bob.....but no.

    According to the National Archives ( UK ) :





    There were 341 homicide cases in England and Wales in 1901 and 28 people, two of whom were women, were convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Of these, 15 were executed, 1 was sent to Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum and the remainder, including the women, had their sentences commuted to penal servitude for life. Most murders, then and now, were committed using a knife or blunt instrument.

    By the 1970s, there were on average 467 homicides a year in England and Wales, compared to an average of 389 in the 1870s. However, given the relative population sizes, this shows a higher homicide rate in late-Victorian society than in the late 20th century.

                      • Well, from the Life Magazine thread, which probably gave you the idea for the question, I'd say that Laird Cregar is one. No idea about the other.

                          • Ah of course, he was on the same thread.


                            I knew it had to be something recent, How, because at your age you can't remember back for more than a day or so.

                              • Here's another for ya.....

                                What murderer who was theorized as being the Ripper ( still is in some circles) had a wax likeness made of him and put in Tussaud's while he was still living ?

                                Little hint....he owned 16 pairs of trousers.
