Description

"Hanged by the neck until you are dead…" There was never anything in the death sentence which stated that hanging had to be carried out to a humane prescription, or that the death of the condemned was supposed to be instantaneous and as painless as possible. Why, then, did James Berry, Britain’s principal hangman of the time, take such exception to press reporters’ coverage of the Cardiff hanging of a man who twitched and struggled at the end of the rope for three full minutes? And why, if it was planly not the case, did the surgeon who performed the post-mortem on the hanged man report that death was instantaneous when objective witnesses knew otherwise? The hanging was, after all, carried out correctly according to the requirements of the law…If you enjoy an intrigue then you are in for a treat this month.

Did you know that the last public eletrocution in Mississippi took place as late as 1954? It scarely seems possible that ordinary people could simply go along and watach a man be put to death in the electric chair as recently as that.

Our final case is a mystery which requires some thought – from the facts of the case and any others you could reasonably deduce, who poisoned Joe Scott? And how would you have handled the investigation had you been on the detective team?
