Literary Madness | Burke and Hare | William Burke

You’re answers show you as being a loyal friend. When Hare came to you for advice, you both knew that selling the first body would be the simplest way and have an added benefit of getting some money back.

Although, you may have never known what would follow, as this became a hole you would gradually get stuck in. The money drove you, body by body, and the loyalty of having each others backs created a security blanket of “we will never be caught”. Never did you know, your friend would be the reason for your execution.
