David ‘Umbi’ Collins, an inherent kleptomaniac and Shane ‘Umbi’ Dundas, a merciless killer, were convicted of bootlegging, arson and murder. Sentenced to death by hanging the pair made no appeal for clemency. When asked if they had any last words David simply said “Yes” and never uttered another word.
David Collins and Shane Dundas (alias Umbilical Brothers), circa 1920, location unknown.
