George Payne

George Payne was a man who certainly lived up to his surname, he was charged with being drunk in the street. Detective Sergeant Gurtner said he received information that a man in the Harrow Road had been heard to say he had committed half a dozen murders in the East End of London, and had now come to the West End to committ half a dozen more. Gurtner swiftly apprehended Payne, who was taken into custody. Payne was described as one of those fellows who goes about terrifying people by boasting that he had done some horrible crime. He was ordered to pay a fine of 10s or go to prison for seven days.
