Quick Reference

Constance Kent (1844–1944) was tried for the murder of her younger brother, Savill, in July 1865. The crime, which came to be known as the Road murder after the name of the village, was one of the most notorious crimes of the period both because of its subject matter, and the confusion which surrounded the investigation and identification of the perpetrator.
