The strand of an unconvincing narrative.
Let’s run another lap ….
A slip of paper was found on the body.
The slip of paper was matched with the book it was torn from.
The book it was torn from had a telephone number written on the back.
The telephone number unearthed a Person of Interest.
The PoI lived two hundred yards away from where the body was found.
The body appeared not to have died where it was found.
The PoI was interviewed at her home.
She was cooperative.
She was taken for another interview and to view the bust of the dead man,
where she was almost overcome,
.. and was no longer cooperative.
This is the narrative that convinced the South Australian Police there was nothing further to pursue in regard to the Somerton Man case.
