A Final Twist
пожалуйста, otherwise known as English Boris has been enlightening everybody with the depth of his questions and cold-bloodiness of his responses where an answer hasn’t been to his liking. The vote around here is that he’s a retired barrister living in clifftop isolation in the north of Scotland, possible overlooking some tasty waves.
Check pic. Filth, eh?
We feel the envy, Boris, not to mention what the bloody temperature must be out there.
Back to it.
Boris was too late to snooker a copy of GF’s ‘The Unknown Man’ so is not in a position to discuss the account of a man seeing a man carrying a man along the foreshore of Somerton Beach on the night of November 30th, 1948.
This is easily fixed.
page 144 goes like this –
” .. and after reading various stories about the ‘Somerton Body’ he thought it may be of interest to the police so he decided to advise them.
In company with the witness I went for a drive in the area. He showed me the route he travelled and he believed the position he saw the man carrying the other man was in the vicinity of The Broadway* or thereabouts. He did say that it was not at the ‘dugouts’ but they were walking along Somerton Beach towards them. He was not able to walk along the foreshore to get his bearings.
This information caused me to re-examine the evidence given at the inquest. Obviously the medical experts were having difficulties supporting their opinions based on the suggestion that the deceased had remained in the same position from 7 p.m. until the following morning.
The lividity above the neck and ears raised questions about the position of the deceased when he died. Concerns were also expressed about the absence of vomit on the body or at the scene.
Revisiting the evidence leaves the finding of the inquest open still.”
