The quaintly named trio were Aboriginals, part of a group who attacked the home of Dr. Edward Vines in Braeside Station, Western Australia, intent on robbery. The group came at night in September 1899, chanting and letting forth a hail of spears. A woman lodger at the house took her revolver, while Dr. Vines waved an unloaded rifle in the air. As he stepped out of the house the doctor was knocked to the ground and fell, dying where he lay.

The three Aboriginals were caught running away and in February 1900 sentenced to death for the doctor’s murder. They were hanged together on Saturday, April 14th, 1900, at Roebourne Prison.
