Crawford, Russel (1806–1832)

On Thursday morning, the utmost penalty of the law was put in force upon the person of Russell Crawford, convicted at the last Criminal Sittings of robbing Mr. Suttor on the highway, and treating him with brutal violence. The culprit was attended in his last moments by the Rev. Mr. McEnroe, who stated, that Crawford confessed his guilt and acknowledged the justice of his sentence. The Rev. Gentleman having retired from the scaffold, the drop fell, and the world closed upon the criminal, who died after a hard struggle.
