Hull Times The body was allowed to hang for an hour until it was moved to one of the cells for the inquest to be held and it was eventually buried within the precincts of the prison. His death signalled the end of an inglorious chapter in Hull’s history. Of the many murders in the city during Victorian times, the killing of William Pepper ranks as perhaps the most infamous. Brand’s death did not, of course, mark an end to the suffering of the Pepper family and Pepper’s father, in particular, was badly affected by his son’s death, sadly entering into conversation about it for long periods, sometimes with total strangers.

He was also struck by the similarities between this murder and the Rainhill case which had been publicised prior to him leaving England. He went to see the Chief Constable of Melbourne who identified the man in custody as Lawson, who had been in prison in Hull for nine months. This set in process the task of linking all the crimes back to one man, Frederick Bailey Deeming. Deeming’s idea of burying his victims in concrete came from his time as an apprentice plumber. One of the places he worked was Chester Cathedral and his experiences there included penetrating the sepulchre as well as resealing the tomb in cement.

The public were confused because another man was tried at York Assizes a day later, in the same court before the same judge. Cornelius Hines had killed his wife, Lilian, in the small house they shared off Tomlinson Street. On the face of it the two cases had incredible coincidences; a married woman with her throat cut by a razor, the accused giving himself up to police and allegations of impropriety between the woman and another man living in the same house. However, Justice Talbot, twenty-four hours after condemning Smith to death by hanging, sentenced Hines to ten years in jail and said: I am conscious of the grief and pain you must have suffered.
