The aftermath of the crimes

The crimes gripped the usually quiet city of Perth. Thousands lined the streets to witness the funeral cortege passing to the Wellshill Cemetery on Saturday morning. On the instruction of the Procurator Fiscal, the funeral itself was private. However, it was estimated that 5000 visited the grave on the Saturday and Sunday and it had to be roped off to prevent souvenir hunters stealing the wreaths piled on it.

In the days following the crimes, people congregated outside the police station in such numbers traffic was often stopped.
