A gloomy silence prevails

The Somerton Man’s DNA may not be linked to Professor Derek Abbott’s wife!

Surely the probable elimination of a major scenario would accelerate further discussion, so why isn’t anyone talking about it?
There’s not a word about this startling new development on DA’s ‘Identifying The Somerton Man’ Facebook site, despite the money donated to his exhumation cause. These good folks have invested a lot of time on the mystery, years in some cases and here we are with what can only be called SENSATIONAL news and none of them wants to know. It’s uncanny. Same with the Adelaide Advertiser, nothing, and here’s me thinking bad news sells.

Nobody’s changed their tune, they’ve just put their instruments down and left the building.

Maybe it’s because the bloodline scenario is now inadequate and they cannot incorporate the new paradigm .. and I’ve always wanted to use that word in its right context.


And of course it might be pertinent to mention for those who may be new here that this impoverished and little-read site of only three followers has a few Somerton Man prizes sitting up on the mantle, and how they glitter in the evening’s firelight.

  1. The first to notice the importance of Gordon Strapp’s deposition.
  2. The first to notice that PC Moss’ interview disputes his senior officer’s sworn deposition.
  3. The first to find an identifiable pattern in the code. We did what Naval Intelligence could not.
  4. This one will have to wait until about July 8th or so. That way if it doesn’t work out nobody will be any the wiser because this post will be deleted. But there does appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. I’m talking about it. I just wish there weren’t so many paywalls in front of SM articles.

    dude47 – I remember reading that you were attending. I kind of scoffed it off thinking it was all a marketing ploy and then real life took over for me. I would love to see your images if you would kindly link so that I don’t have to spend a day (I cannot currently afford) trying to find it.
