As someone who has spent a large portion of his life working at the criminal bar, I find my interest turning from time to time to those famous, or rather infamous, members of our family that have chosen different life paths than most of us. The following is part of an article from Wikipedia.

"Henry John Burnett (5 January 1942 executed 15 August 1963) was the last man to be hanged in Scotland and the first in Aberdeen since 1891. He was tried at the high court in Aberdeen between 23 and 25 July 1963 for the murder of merchant seaman Thomas Guyan. His execution, at Craiginches Prison in Aberdeen, was carried out by the hangman Harry Allen."
