In total Burke and Hare are said to have murdered at least 16 people for between seven to ten pounds apiece, although the real total is likely to be a lot higher.
A local prostitute, Janet Brown, was lucky to escape with her life when she and a friend, Mary Patterson, were invited to stay by Burke.
Having excused herself earlier in the evening, Janet returned to find her friend missing and was told Mary and Burke had stepped out. Having waited for her friend to return, Janet eventually decided to leave, having no idea that Mary was lying dead in the next room ready to be taken to Knox and that she herself was the next likely victim!
Burke and Hare soon became greedy and no one was safe. However, with greed came carelessness. Knox was said to strongly deny the identity of the body but swiftly removed his head and deformed foot during the dissection.
William and Margaret Hare turned King's witnesses, that is, witnesses for the prosecution, in return for immunity. Burke and M'Dougal were tried for murder on December 24, M'Dougal was acquitted with the distinctively Scots verdict, Not Proven.
Burke was convicted and sentenced to death. The final two victims. The murderers and their wives during the trial. She had a wax model of Burke on display in Liverpool within a fortnight of his execution.
Wood's work West Port Murders , considers the number of attendees "more nearly to forty thousand souls than to thirty-five thousand".
These include that he worked at a lime pit, until he was recognised, upon which point his fellow-workers threw him into the pit, which turned him blind; he may have turned to begging on Oxford Street , London.
Other possibilities are that he went to Ireland or America and lived for 40 years after the murders.

Douglas, Hugh Burke and Hare: the true story. London: R. Dudley Edwards, Owen Burke and Hare. Edinburgh: Birlinn. Gilliland, J Gravediggers' Bouncer David Schofield Edit Storyline Based on the true story about the famous murderers, this movie follows the hapless exploits of William Burke Simon Pegg and William Hare Andy Serkis as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in nineteenth century Edinburgh, Scotland, then the center of medical learning.
Taglines: True love costs an arm and a leg. Edit Did You Know? Trivia An obscure joke occurs early in the movie, when Burke and Hare are unmasked as a pair of confidence men, since their "Irish moss" is revealed to be cheese mold, a foolish substitute, since they could've used Scottish moss.
But the real point, is that such molds really can cure some infections as was claimed, and if Burke and Hare hadn't turned to grave robbing, then they just might be hailed as the nineteenth century discoverers of Penicillin.
Goofs In the "multiple dissection" scene Tom Wilkinson uncovers each of the four dead bodies one at a time. But, following a quick edit to the applauding students, in a closer shot one of the bodies is covered up again.

Was this review helpful to you? When their fraud is discovered, they flee to an inn owned by Hare's wife, Lucky. One of her lodgers has died, and she wants Burke and Hare to remove the body.
On the way, they stop for a drink and Hare hears from Fergus, a local henchman of villain Danny McTavish, that Dr Knox pays for cadavers, especially now demand has gone up.
Burke and Hare decide to sell the corpse to Knox. They are forced to break the corpse's spine to fit it into a barrel in order to smuggle it through the city.
Burke and Hare present the now-mangled corpse to Knox. After some negotiation, Knox agrees to pay them a good sum of money for each corpse they bring him for dissection.
In addition to using cadavers in lectures, Knox is attempting to create a pictorial reference of the human body by using an early form of photography.
Using this, he hopes to win royal patronage from the king when he comes to Holyrood Palace. Burke and Hare try grave-digging to procure more cadavers.
They accidentally dig up a long-dead body and are then caught by the militia, who chase them out of the cemetery, shooting Burke in the rear end in the pursuit.
Back at the inn, they find Lucky drunk and barely conscious. Lucky says she is drinking because Joseph, another lodger at the inn, is near death.
Not willing to wait for the outcome, Burke and Hare suffocate Joseph and take the body to Knox. Flush with money, Burke and Hare dress up for a night in a posher pub.
There they meet a young former prostitute, Ginny Hawkins, who performs an excerpt from Macbeth to the indifferent patrons. Burke is instantly taken with Ginny and asks her about her performance.
Ginny proves to be an intelligent and ambitious young woman whose dream is to become an actress. Burke plans to use his money to finance Ginny's theatrical ambitions, and Hare decides to open a funeral parlour.
