Episode 14: Edward William Pritchard. "Doctor" Edward William Pritchard practiced medicine in the late 1800's but his past was vague and sketchy. Eventually convicted of two murders and suspected of a third, he was the last person to be publicly hanged in Scotland. Listen now as Joannagh tells you the macabre story and gives you a few wee bits of Scottish history along the way.
