Murder of Joseph Glendinning

July 13. The body of Joseph Glendinning was found murdered in his own field, near Workington. He was seen very near the place, in company of a man at present unknown, between seven and eight o'clock in the morning, and was found dead between two and three in the afternoon; and from every circumstance it appears that the murder must have been committed within a few minutes after he was seen with the said unknown person. A more cruel and barbarous murder has not been heard of in any country. He had five wounds in the breast and ribs, eleven in the belly, twelve in the neck, and one in the right leg.
