Character description

Rose Connoley: Murder victim in the song of the same name. The murderer drugged her with "burglar's wine," stabbed her, and tossed her in the river, expecting that his money would let him escape the consequences of his crime. But he is hanged. If the event is historical, it has not been traced.
