The Somerton Man Case – A litany of secrets.

The man.

We don’t know his purpose for being in Adelaide. We don’t know if he was met.

We don’t know his nationality, his employment. We don’t know how he arrived, or why he carried six pencils in his luggage.

We can only guess what was the purpose of his tools.

We don’t know why the TS slip was hidden in his fob pocket. We don’t know who put it there. We don’t know who wrote the code, what it means or who slipped it inside the chemist’s car. We don’t know who wrote the woman’s phone number above the code. We don’t know why.

We don’t know if he came to Adelaide to commit suicide. We don’t know if he was murdered after he arrived, and if so, why, and by whom.

We don’t know why he was found dead so close to her home.

The woman.

We don’t know what their relationship was. We don’t know if they met after he arrived or somewhere else at another time. We don’t know why the woman was so shocked at seeing his death mask. We don’t know if she already knew he was dead. We don’t know where he died.

We don’t know why she remained silent ever after.

We don’t know why he was found so close to her home.

We don’t know if this was a deliberate act. And we don’t know if it was the result of his own deliberations or those of someone else.
