Line of this is my hometown. Mystery of the dead man on the more are so crazy dear. Og murdering US perfect act really sweet. Nice one. Okay I've been wanting to write for some time but as you have already covered my hometown. Murderers the the infamous Moors murders. I I had to think further imagine being seven years old and being told about the five children around your age that were brutally murdered up the road on top of the surrounding hills that you love so much come murdering was born. Love it anyhow. I thought you'd be interested in a mystery which kripke UK in two thousand fifteen and took place in my hometown. Hometown Saddleworth knowing New England holding the oldest England she they wrote northern England Saddleworth which is pronounced worth or something. We'll find out later. In the morning of the twelfth of December two thousand fifteen and older looking man was found found dead on a path of of of stone reservoir lying perfectly straight in the path with his arms crossed across with his arms across his chest it was was freezing and the rain was torrential but he wore light clothes for the weather he had no identification on him at all or any personal artifacts that would tell people who who he was or why he was here he did have one hundred hundred and thirty pounds all in ten pound notes. Three train tickets from London to Manchester the day before in a small blue cardboard medicine box. The label was printed in both English. An urge you so all pretty weird clues and no one knew who he was. No one was able to identify him even with the sketch of his face on the news he was a mystery. The people at the more called him Neil because apparently he looked like a neil that was in quotes quotes and devastation after the name of the reservoir where he was found police got to work investigating. Neil checking CICI TV at the train stations and asking around the village he walked into the Clarence pub where I had my first ever job as the worst fucking ever waitress known to person kind I love it really want to hear the stories. Yeah Anyway he asked how to get how to get to the top of the mountain meaning the hill side of the Moorland. The staff warn the man that he wouldn't get there and back before dark mark but he asked them to repeat the directions and left anyway. Weird sounds like suicide right. Well even weirder. He died from strychnine poisoning poisoning and archaic poison written about in Agatha Christie novels and currently banned in the European Union. Doesn't it sound like he's trying to establish an alibi by going in Marin saying tell me how to get to this weird place to this once the Nabet how me again like that. Sounds like you're gonNA remember me. Yeah may be. Maybe someone was following him. Oh maybe maybe then say settlements while you tell me these directions. I've also another piece of information. Yeah I keep going no. There's a lot of okay okay. Why would someone kill themselves? And how did he even get that poison when it's banned over the whole continent and by now his face was all over the news in the UK. Why had no one come forward to identify him in an autopsy? A titanium plate was found attached to his left femur strangely didn't have a serial number but was branded by company found in Pakistan through. This police managed to identify him as David. Lighten so not a Neil and saw that that was on the edge And saw that he had flown four thousand miles from Lahore Pakistan. Two days before he was found dead on a path on Saddleworth more police found out more about his identity. But until this day no one knows the truth about his death did he return to the UK specifically to die by suicide.

Yes thank you. Thank you because that does not sound like prom no previous year. Anyway during nineteen seventy four and seventy five. The city was on high alert because because some chap decided to break into people's homes and rape them call them at chap she did call much up. He wasn't is a different culture yes he would then dawn a long blonde don a long blonde wig and do a runner that means he took off. He put away on and ran but I love and runner. Okay imaging to elude the police for two years before his capture cheese so pictures back in the summer of Nineteen seventy-four no idea it was summer. But that's how I imagine it when my mom told me the story and my dad's younger sister also still living at home is hanging out in the garden of their home which was on the outskirts of Cambridge and talking to the very affable son of their neighbors about unquote. These awful attacks happening to women Cambridge and how bad it was etc etc.. The neighbors agreed with her and discussed it for a while before finishing fishing the conversation and going about their days long view months later when she found out he cut to a few months later when she found out she was shooting the Shit with none other than the Cambridge rapist himself about his attacks.
