American homicide; cut his mother and sister's throats on 3/30/1892, 7:30 PM, Houston, TX. Nervous and witty, dissolute and a drinker, he became vulgar, rude and profane when drunk. Sober at the time of the double murder, he put on a drunk the following day. After being hanged on 8/04/1893, an autopsy found that his brain weight was 38 oz, markedly less than the average 49 oz.
