BBC News website 05/01/2017

Post  Poe on Thu 05 Jan 2017, 10:08 am

On the BBC News website this morning, In the "Features" section, the top three stories are:



Family Killings

The children targeted by the people closest to them.




Where's Trista?

A mother's quest to find missing daughter.




'No body, No murder'

The missing girl case that helped rewrite legal history.


Link to BBC News: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news


I wonder whether the use and placement of these articles is purely co-incidental or if the BBC is aware that there will be some McCann news shortly.


This is an interesting photo taken from the piece about missing Trista:

Here's a direct link to the Mona Tinsley case which happened 80 years ago today.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-37577247

Some similarities with something else!

"Local historian Chris Hobbs said: "The reaction of Lilian and her husband Wilfred, when questioned, was odd. They seemed evasive. "When pressed by officers, Mrs Tinsley admitted they briefly had a lodger, known to the children as 'Uncle Fred'. Eventually she gave a name, Frederick Hudson, and, seemingly with great reluctance, the fact he was a friend of her sister Edith Grimes in Sheffield. Why would the parents be like this with the safety of their daughter at stake?" Mr Hobbs queried.

A possible, and murky, answer would emerge".

All these missing, never found, missing children. How sad that is.

Interesting!

One comments I read in the article which stood out :

It enthralled a nation and helped change the age-old principle that a murder could not be proved without a body.
