Unconcerned About His Fate
Following Lee's arrest, the Torquay Times reported concerns about Lee's sanity: 'It is said that the young fellow in custody has of late manisfested signs of being not quite right in the mind'. Lee's parents also revealed that he had acted in the past 'as though he were not quite right'. When his mother went to see him in prison for the last time before the appointed execution, she found him to be totally unconcerned about his fate, cheerful, and behaving she said, 'as if he were going to a theatre'.
