Edwin Bush

Edwin Bush (1940–1961) was the first criminal in Britain to be caught through the use of the Identikit facial composite system, the second to last executed in London and the last to be hanged at Pentonville Prison.

Bush was born to an English woman and an Asian father and was taken into care at age 12 after his living conditions were deemed to be being horrific. He later embarked on a life of crime and ended up in Borstal, before the age of 18. By 20, he was living in the slums of Honor Oak, in South East London.
