    I think this case is still unsolved.

      Unsolved? Not according to retired Superintendent Neil's memoirs. They could never charge the murderer because he was a long term mental patient, from a well-to-do family, who kept being discharged from the care of mental institutions when he shouldn't have been.

        Thanks for that Curry....

        It sort of sounds like Anderson's actions regarding the Kozminski situation.

          I believe a convicted murderer named Arthur Salvage confessed to this murder as well although he was never charged so perhaps there was some doubt about his claim. He did wind up in the mad house so he was not executed.

              Is this the same Arthur Salvage who was responsible for the Ruckinge child murder (Ivy Godden)?

                  Hi Stan

                  Thanks for that - I just found it here:

                  http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/74368667

                  It looks like there were some prior indications which were ignored...

                  Cheers

                  Dave

                    Hi all,

                    http://www.archive.org/stream/murder...0adam_djvu.txt

                    Hargrave Lee Adams book. Chapter 2, The Silent Hour covers this murder.

                        His mother was absolutely devoted to him and had exiled herself with him to a remote village for his sake. After Ivy's body was found a bloodhound led police again and again to the Salvage bungalow. He'd started a poultry farm (shades of Norman Thorne) and played in the village cricket team.

                        Arthur suffered from what was quaintly called 'impulsive insanity' where whole hours of the day were a blank to him. He did escape the gallows but disappeared from Broadmoor on one occasion afterwards, which must have been a great comfort to people who lived nearby!
