Trial and Inquest

Last session we examined the transcripts for the inquest of Arthur Dyson in Sheffield and the transcripts for the Habron trial in Manchester.

As these trials took place, Peace fled the area and travelled to a number of cities including Hull, Nottingham and London.

A warrant for the arrest of Peace was issued and a large scale manhunt began for Peace. At this time the local and the national press began to investigate Charles Peace. The press began their quest for 'anti hero' and the subsequent events would not disappoint a crime thirsty press.

In the next session we will examine the arrest, escape, trail of Charles Frederick Peace.
