Murder of a Policeman in Buckpool, Wordsley

Post by Karen on Sun 9 Mar 2014 - 18:31

Buckpool, Wordsley is where Pearson had shared a medical practice with his second cousin, Dr. John Jones Parrish. In 1886, a policeman named Hine, of the Warwickshire Constabulary, was murdered and it was stated that a few persons were involved in his murder.

MURDER OF THE POLICEMAN HINE.

A boatman named Samuel Mountford was arrested at Dudley on Saturday on suspicion of being concerned in the murder of Hine, of the Warwickshire Constabulary, at Fenny Compton, on the 15th of February. Mountford was in Dudley on Friday, and meeting
an old acquaintance named Alice Corbett, said he would have to wish her good-bye, as he had got into a scrape over the murder of a policeman in Warwickshire. He added that there were several others in the mess, and that he intended to get out of the country
as soon as possible. On her return home, Corbett, who lives in a lodging-house in Birmingham-street, Dudley, related the conversation to her husband, who insisted upon her informing the police. With some reluctance she did so, and Chief Superintendent Burton arrested
Mountford at the house of his step-father, at Buckpool, Wordsley. Corbett was confronted with the Prisoner at Dudley Police-station on Saturday morning, and in his presence repeated what he had already told the police. He was charged on Monday with the murder. Alice Corbett
stated that while walking along the canal side at Wordsley on Friday, the Prisoner passed her in a boat. He stopped, and said to her, "Alice, I have done a fine thing by going into the country. I am one of them that killed the policeman in Warwickshire. There are five or six others in the mess."
The Bench remanded the Prisoner in custody to be handed over to the Warwickshire Police.
