"John 'Babbacombe' Lee achieved notoriety on three counts: he was found guilty of the murder of his elderly employer in Babbacombe in 1884; he was sent for execution but three times the trap failed to operate; released from gaol after 23 years in custody, John Lee married, then abandoned his family and disappeared."
