Portrait of Bill Hurley, photographed at Holsinger Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Virginia Historical Society.

William "Bill" Hurley, of Charlottesville, Virginia was a liveryman, coachman, and stable owner; he worked for J. Samuel McCue, the Charlottesville's mayor, who, in 1904, was tried for the murder of his wife. Hurley testified against the mayor, who was convicted and sentenced to death. Mayor McCue was hanged in the courtyard of the Charlottesville City Jail, February of 1905. It was whispered later that the Mayor's mistress had killed his wife and that the Mayor had taken the murder rap for her.
