    Great minds Michael! I posted before reading yours.

    Love,

    Morning All,

    I would tend to go along with what Ed said about the summer holidays. If university students in halls of residence and boarding school pupils traditionally have to take all their belongings back home for the long summer break, I don't see why the same would not have applied...

  • Wasn't PC Neil a bit late that morning? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    The man who was approaching, whoever he was, could have had a box of matches on him and insisted on using them to examine the woman more closely. Lechmere simply couldn't have predicted the man's reactions or character,...

  • Right, so what would this serial killer have done if Robert Paul had suspected what he'd just done and confronted him? "It's a fair cop"? Or would he have legged it at that point, knowing he had made a potentially fatal mistake?

    And what if Robert Paul had suspected Lechmere,...

  • How could he have been sure that Paul wasn't a PC with a lantern, who would see that the woman had not only been attacked but nearly decapitated?

    If he'd walked briskly away, it would still have taken a few seconds for anyone to reach the woman, suspect this was a very recent attack and...

    Another possible factor is the bad weather that summer. Forecasting was not exactly sophisticated, so it might have been preferable to 'make hay while the sun shines' and begin matches early enough that season to allow for the weather to change as the day progressed. Unless the skies were clear first...

    replied to The Basis OF Druitt's Candidacy
    That's ridiculous, Christer. We know for a fact that if Druitt did it, he didn't stay at the scene, and for bleedin' obvious reasons. For one thing, how would it look when he had to admit he had been playing cricket in Dorset the previous afternoon?

    Yes, of course somebody had to find...

    Yes I did miss it, Christer, because I have an unfortunate habit of reading and responding to a post before reading all subsequent posts, so I tend not to see how the discussion has progressed or evolved until I make a prat of myself. Occasionally I have prepared a long response to a post, only to find...

    While serial killers show no remorse for what they inflict on others, I imagine they feel very sorry for themselves when anything bad happens to them personally, or prevents them carrying on as normal. We usually think of them only committing suicide if they are caught, or when their continued freedom...

    I moved to Waddon in 1978 and became a Morris when I took up with a lowly gas project engineer, who had an apprentice working under him at the gas works who is an Old Whitgiftian. He would have been there in the 70s too. His daddy was a big noise in gas, so he followed him into the industry....

    I don't suppose anything useful could be learned about the Dorset matches here:

    I beg to differ, Christer. In any of those other circumstances, that man would not have had the ideal excuse for being precisely where he was when Robert Paul came along.

    Druitt couldn't have hung around at the scene, could he? Anyone other than your suspect obviously didn't hang around,...

    Hi Simon,

    I did wonder about that very possibility, Simon, but like yours, it was merely a passing thought. He had no business bringing poor Druitt's name into it at all, if he suspected someone else entirely.

    Macnaghten felt privileged to be the recipient of inside knowledge...

    You were at Whitgift, Ed?? Which years? And where were you living at the time?

    My daughter was an Old Palace girl, but not until the 1990s.

    Love,

    Mrs Brown, formerly of Shirley and before that, Waddon

    I was going to post something similar, Jay, about the most privileged boys often becoming grown men - some of them, unfortunately for the rest of us, leaders of men - who are totally without scruples, conscience or humanity, and think a moral compass is something boy scouts keep in the heel of their...
