The man seen alive in the evening was not the man found dead in the morning
Proved beyond doubt?
The body found dead on the morning of December 1 was wearing plain brown trousers.
Feltus missed it, both the Clelands missed it, the entire investigative team of detectives missed it. Derek Abbott missed it, Pelling the same, Cramer missed it. In fact, EVERYBODY missed it.
We spotted it .. seventy years on.
Some would like to think the poison he may have taken made him sick and he took himself away for a change of clothing before returning to the beach to die. They should try making a movie out of that scenario.
