Murder Most Foul No. 126


He came to England from Bombay (now Mumbai) to work as a doctor. But Dr. Buck Ruxton’s career turned out to be a short one. Aged 37, he achieved national infamy as the prime suspect in a chilling double-murder. The two victims were his “wife” Isabella and their maid Mary Rogerson whose dismembered remains were found in a Scottish river, far from his home in Lancaster. Was he guilty? Eminent criminal barrister Norman Birkett had his doubts and took on the task of defending him at his trial in Manchester. See this issue’s “Savage Surgeon Commits ‘Jigsaw Murders’” for the full, incredible story.
