Hanged on this day 28th January in 1829 - William Burke, murderer
The skeleton of William Burke resides in the Anatomical Museum. In 1828, Burke and his accomplice William Hare murdered 16 individuals in the old town of Edinburgh and sold the fresh corpses to Dr Robert Knox, a popular and charismatic extra-mural anatomy lecturer.
Burke’s trial took place on Christmas Eve 1828, but there was little hard evidence to convict the pair and so William Hare was offered his freedom if he testified against Burke. Burke faced three charges of murder but was convicted of one, that of Marjory Campbell (married name Mrs Mary Docherty).
On 28th January 1829 William Burke was hanged in the Lawnmarket on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh and the following day publicly dissected by Dr Alexander Monro, Professor of Anatomy in the Anatomy Theatre at Old College, University of Edinburgh.
