conclusions drawn from contemporary evidence

The picture of the Rubaiyat used by the press was not of the one handed in by Mr Francis.

No picture of the Francis Rubaiyat was released.

The picture of the torn page used by the press was not taken from the book handed in by Mr Francis.

No picture of the torn page in the Francis book was released.

The code was written in pencil on the rear cover of the Rubaiyat.

No picture of the pencilled code was released.

The police were able to read the code by using ultra-violet light.

No picture of the ultra-violet enhanced code was released.

The telephone number of a woman living close to where the body was found was written in pencil on the rear cover of the Rubaiyat.

No picture of the telephone number was released.

There was a name written on the back cover of the Rubaiyat.

No picture of this name was released.

Accounts of indentations on other surfaces caused by writing the code are only heresay.

There is no account of the police overwriting the code to make it more legible.

There is no account of either army or navy coding personnel overwriting the code to make it more legible.

A picture of the overwritten code was made available to the press.

The real identity of Mr Francis has never been made public.

The real circumstances of the finding of the Rubaiyat have never been made public.

There was no missing leaf.

    So why the big secrecy over a copy of the Rubaiyat? Unless, of course, this copy contained, within its pages, writing deemed to be too sensitive for the press to get hold of. Strange that, after all these years, ‘Mr Francis’ or a relative have never come clean, so to speak, and reveal the truth in this story.

  2. Analyst Cowan wasn’t asked to come confirm the TS slip matched the Rubaiyat, anyone can cut a hole when you know how big it’s got to be ….. this is the man who was so involved in the case he tried on the dead man’s footwear, the state’s leading analyst who was unable to identify black powder shaken from the brush, the man, some suspect, who lodged the TS slip Moss didn’t miss into SM’ s pocket when he had unlimited access to his belongings … to the evidence .. with the foolish Cleland, who forgot what he did a minute after doing it.
    This is not a mystery, it’s a tragedy …
