“I was so drunk I didn’t know what I was doing,” labourer William Feast, 42, said when he was arrested in December 1955. Initially intent on burglary, he broke into the isolated home of Mrs. Eunice Gwynne, 79, at St. Peters, Adelaide, and raped her before strangling her. At 8 a.m. on Friday, March 23rd, 1956, he walked quietly to the scaffold in Adelaide Prison accompanied by two priests.
