He was also ordered to show cause why he should not be imprisoned indefinitely under the Indeterminate Sentences Act;  however, the Supreme Court declined to order an indeterminate sentence, concluding that Taylor's criminal record was not sufficiently serious to warrant one. The police were relentless in their search for Buckley. Almost seven years after the murder of Berriman, the police traced him to a house in Moonee Ponds, Victoria, where he was arrested in October Cutmore, a standover man associated with the Razor Gang of Sydney, was also fatally wounded.
Cutmore was an old foe of Taylor's. The animosity dated back to the Fitzroy Vendetta in when Cutmore was a member of the rival Fitzroy gang. Cutmore returned to Melbourne with his wife in October and began staying at his mother's house in Barkly Street, Carlton. Within a few days of his arrival, Cutmore was confined to bed with a severe bout of influenza. Meanwhile, Taylor, hearing of Cutmore's return from Sydney, set out to find him.
They stopped at several Carlton hotels in search of Cutmore and, finally, Taylor told the driver to take them to Barkly Street, Carlton. In Barkly Street, Taylor and the two men got out of the taxi and headed for Cutmore's house. Taylor and one of his companions let themselves into the house and went to the room where Cutmore was lying ill in bed. Words were exchanged by the men, followed by a series of gunshots in quick succession. Cutmore, still lying in bed, was fatally wounded.
His mother, who rushed to the room after hearing the shooting, was also wounded in the shoulder. Taylor was shot in his right side below the ribs. He staggered outside towards the waiting taxi, while one of his companions fled out the back door of the house. Taylor was helped into the taxi and taken to St Vincent's Hospital.
When stuck in traffic on the way to the hospital, Taylor's other companion jumped from the taxi and ran off. Taylor was unconscious by the time he arrived at the casualty ward and died soon afterwards. Taylor was survived by his wife Ida, their young daughter Gloria, and a daughter Patsy from his previous marriage to Lorna Kelly.
He was buried with Anglican rites in Brighton Cemetery. On the morning of the funeral, the police were needed to control a large crowd of onlookers who gathered at Taylor's house, swarming around the waiting hearse in morbid curiosity. Taylor's gravesite in the Brighton Cemetery has become a major attraction since the television series was announced and as a consequence, his great-great nephew, Brett Hinch, has recently restored the headstone and surrounds to their original condition. Police enquiries into the death of Taylor and Cutmore led to the arrest of four men. On the day after the shooting Roy Travers, an associate of Cutmore, was detained at Albury on a Sydney-bound train.
The following day, the police intercepted three other men, Thomas Kelly, his brother Sidney Kelly and Norman Smith, also on their way back to Sydney. The police suspected that two of these men had accompanied Taylor to Cutmore's house on the night of the shooting.
Thomas Kelly had just been acquitted of shooting Frank 'Razor Jack' Hayes with intent to do grievous bodily harm. Hayes together with Norman Bruhn and Cutmore, were central figures in a notorious razor gang that preyed on their peers in the Sydney underworld. The police recovered three handguns believed to be connected with the shooting of Taylor and Cutmore.
An automatic pistol was found in Taylor's pocket after he arrived at hospital and two other pistols were discovered in the vicinity of Cutmore's house, one was hidden in the cistern of a toilet in the backyard and the other was found in a right-of-way some distance away.
This suggested that a third person was involved in the shooting. A coronial inquiry was held into the deaths of Taylor and Cutmore. He concluded that " Cutmore died from bullet wounds in the heart and lungs. There is not sufficient evidence to say who fired the shots Taylor died from a bullet wound in the liver. There is not sufficient evidence to determine who fired the shot. There was no evidence of the motive for the shooting, the identity of the third person involved or explaining the discovery of Cutmore's pistol in a right-of-way some distance from the scene of the shooting.
The four arrested men were discharged without conviction.
Several theories soon emerged about the deaths of Taylor and Cutmore. An early police theory was that the enmity between the two men resulted from jealousy over a woman. The Melbourne Truth newspaper printed multiple theories on the Taylor-Cutmore shooting. One was that the shooting was an accident and Taylor, who was more bravado than bite, had only intended to "put the wind up" Cutmore not realising that he was armed.
Another theory was that an unknown third person had lured Taylor and Cutmore to the Barkly Street house and murdered one or both of them.

Yet another theory was that Taylor murdered Cutmore as payback for the death of Norman Bruhn. It reported that the police believed Cutmore had murdered Bruhn because he had robbed a friend of his. While there is a wealth of often speculative theories, there has never been a decisive explanation of what happened inside the Barkly Street house on 27 October or the reason for the shootings. The only consensus is that the official version of events is incomplete and that an unidentified third person was present at the fatal gunfight. While some people continue to suspect Taylor's involvement in the Trades Hall burglary,  there is no known evidence of this or an association between Taylor and Wren.
Taylor's life was also the subject of the musical play Squizzy , featuring songs by Faye Bendrups and a script by acclaimed Australian playwright Barry Dickins. It premiered at La Mama Theatre on 10 June, and ran for 15 shows. The book Runner by Robert Newton, follows a fictional teenager who is hired as a runner for Taylor. Taylor was featured in the Australian series Underbelly: Razor , a part series covering the Razor war which occurred in Sydney during the twenties and thirties, which was broadcast in The sixth season, Underbelly: Squizzy , was based on his life.
The eight-part series aired on the Nine Network as with the previous series of Underbelly ,  with actor Jared Daperis replacing Rosniak in the title role. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
