Literary Madness | Burke and Hare | William Hare

You grass! You snitch! Your personality has shown that you are a smart but deceiving character.

You were the brains behind the Burke and Hare operation, you were scared to lose business that you conjured up this avenue to get rid of any risky business of people being ill and earning yourself and Burke some extra money in the process.

You started this journey and ended up by cooperating with the police under “Kings evidence” circumstances and after confessing to the 16 killings, you allowed your best friend and his innocent wife to take the blame and charges by themselves.

You may be smart, but even for a murderer your morals are sketchy.
