June 10th: Daniel Stewart GORRIE (30)
On 12 April, Thomas Furlonger, a baker at Neville's Bakery, Brixton, picked up his week's wages. Later that night, he was found beaten to death and robbed of his money. The attacker had used an iron bar which was found lying nearby. Gorrie was picked up after he was identified as being seen in the vicinity of the murder. When his pockets were emptied he was found to be in possession of more money than he could possibly have earned. Hanged by Berry.
