Nov. 23, 1910: Dr. Hawley Crippen is executed in London for killing his wife.

“Only a small group of officials attended, and every effort had been made to prevent morbid crowds from gathering in the neighborhood,” The Times said.

“An evening paper caused a sensation last night by flooding the city with placards that Crippen had made a written confession. Everyone in a position to know denied this,” The Times said.
