There was great outcry, but the body was not removed until an acquaintance of Wilson passed the spot and horrified by the spectacle of McKay's rotting corpse, pleaded with the authorities to remove it.The location is still marked by a sign reading, "Gibbet Hill" on the right when heading to Launceston.This was the last case of gibbeting in a British colony.
