Dr Pantchenko and Patrick O'brien De'Lacy
« on: November 09, 2014, 09:20:07 AM »
Hi
If anybody can shed light on Pantchenko and De'Lacy's outcome after they where convicted of the murder of Vassily Buturlin by poison in St Petersburg in 1910. I know De'lacy was sentenced to life in Siberia and was wondering if he served his sentence, or was released by the soldiers of the revolution. De'lacy was married to the victim's sister. Money was the motive for the murder. Any further information would be appreciated. :)

Count Patrick O'Brien de Lacy had served his life term at the Shlisselburg fortress near St. Petersburg until 1917, when he was released together with other prisoners. Soon afterwards he returned to his family's originally native Scotland and, according to one source, was employed as naval engineer at Dundee Shipyard.
