Article from "That's Life" publication.
George Lloyd was my father's maternal Uncle and I have a very detailed account of the story written by my father, Benjamin Franklin Lawrance (Frank) in his 'Memories of Life' for our family history, culminating in the fact that George's brother Charles who was a land agent in Adelaide and also a member of the Adelaide City Council, went to Fremantle and obtained permission to interview Rowles in prison. He put it to the condemned man that he would be paying the price for the death of one man. If he had in fact been guilty of his brother's death, would it not be a decent thing to do to confess to Lloyd's death as well. After some consideration Rowles said, 'Yes, after the first shot (not poison) Lloyd came at me with a spade, so I had to let him have it as well'.
I would be most interested to hear from Marilyn and to obtain a copy of this article.
