A John Williams was sentenced to death for two multiple murders, the" Ratciff Highway Murders". However before execution his body was found hanged in his cell. In order to appease public concern his body was taken round the area on a cart then buried at the cross roads of Cable Street and Cannon Street Road with a stake through his heart. He was dug up by gas main layers after 100 years and his skull was later displayed nearby in the Crown and Dolphin until it closed.
