ET #218: William and John Dyon

My 218th Executed Today entry was published yesterday: the hangings of William Dyon and his son John, who had murdered William’s brother (another John) in Doncaster, England in 1828. The two killers weren’t terribly bright; they went around telling everyone who would listen that they hated the victim, they even said they wanted to kill the victim, they allowed themselves to get spotted in the area with their rifles, and William left distinctive boot prints at the crime scene.
