When Colin Campbell Ross was sent to the gallows at the Old Melbourne Gaol in 1922, few would have guessed his name would be cleared by a humble librarian more than 80 years later. Kevin Morgan was the librarian, historian and author whose book, Gun Alley, was instrumental to Ross receiving a pardon in 2008 for his wrongful conviction for the rape and murder of a 12-year-old girl in a Melbourne alley. To coincide with the release of a new edition of Gun Alley with an epilogue detailing Ross's pardon, Morgan yesterday launched a second book, Detective Piggott's Casebook, based on a detective's scrapbooks he discovered researching the Gun Alley case.
