William Connelly
William Connelly was charged with the beating to death of Ernst John Bourke.
Two Norwegian seamen, Olaf Halinen and Anders Anderson were orginally charged and imprisoned for the murder.

Connelly however could not keep his stories straight and was later to confess to the Chief Dectective on the case. He had beaten Bourke to death with the intention of robbing him. As a result of false accusations and nailing Anderson, it was said, Anderson died of a broken heart.
