Do you mean Gibbins v Proctor (1918), the criminal case involving an omission which led to a death?

Just had a quick peek on LexisNexis, and nothing comes up. Not really sure where else you can find it online!

You mean this?
R v Gibbons and Proctor (1918) 13 Cr App Rep 134.

This is a case involving a child being starved to death by cohabitees.
Proctor was in charge of the child, so Gibbons made out he had no
knowledge of the child's condition. But the court convicted him on the
grounds that he lived in the house, was the father of the child and
should have been aware of her plight, and had therefore grossly
neglected her.

That case held that the advertisements of rewards for information leading to the arrest or conviction of the perpetrator of a crime, is treated as an offer: the intention to be bound is inferred from the fact that no further bargaining is expected to result from them.

The case has also been cited as authority for the proposition that acceptance in ignorance of an offer is effective: that a person who gives information for which a reward has been offered can claim it even though at the time of giving it he had no knowledge of the offer of reward. However, this case can be explained on the alternate ground that the claimant did know of the offer of reward by the time the information was given on his behalf to the person named in the advertisement.

I've seen it both ways in different text books I'm not sure which is correct.
