    would Richard "murder" anyone without Edward's consent and command.  My guess is Edward of Lancaster was killed on the battlefield, much as Richard III would himself be, years later - and that Edward also arranged for Henry VI to be quietly offed.  After all, he'd just been deposed - he wasn't going to risk it happening again.

      At Edward IV's order. It was done while Henry was in the Tower of London after Edward won back the throne.

      Anne Neville's first husband, Eduard of Lancaster, Henry VI's son, was probably killed by the Duke of Clarence, brother to both Edward and Richard.

      Eduard of Lancaster, Le Fleur d'Anjou, is said to have claimed sanctuary in Tewkesbury Abbey and was dragged out by victorious Yorkists troops and slain.
