        Haven't been able to find anything about the Riley's yet, but have found the below on the Galley.


        Would be interested to know if anyone has access to newspapers of the period?


        Is it possible to obtain coroner's hearing from 1896?

                    It would be interesting to know what happened to the two unfortunate daughters of the victims. Obviously it was a most traumatic thing to witness, and the older girl had to repeat the testimony twice on a witness stand. How did they fare afterwards? Were they able to find some degree of happiness after seeing their young lives destroyed by the butcher? And what was like after two decades in prison for "the people's butcher"?

                      Sorry, I was going to post an image of the Riley depositions but the img tags won't work on here.

                      I have access to this file if you need anything from it:

                      CRIM 1/45/5: Defendant: Galley, Elijah Charge: Murder
                      June 16th, 1894 - July 14th, 1896.

                        Certainly an avenue of investigation Jeff, that I may well explore at some point, if I turn anything up I'll post it on the forum.

                        In the mean time I've been researching PC WAGG, he was certainly no stranger to knife crime and indeed violent crime in general. I have found two other newspaper articles concerning him.
