The mystery of the disappearance of Genette Tate

Post  Freedom on Sat 14 Feb 2015, 3:13 am

This case from 1978 has been mentioned elsewhere so it now has its own topic.

Here's a Wikipedia link and the latest news report.

It has never been solved but I remember Maartje Tamboezer and the search for her. 
Several entries in Wiki but the two killers were found although it looks to me that life sentences could soon run out, horrible thought.

I remember all the murder victims.

I sincerely hope that these two creatures never see the light of day (outside prison) again.

One point is that one of them had 33 house keys, so likely that there were many victims. 
 A friend of mine is an ex-police woman. she and her colleague caught a serial rapist when he used a phone box by winding a rope around the box whilst she waited for back-up.

Hahaha!

In our town some local yobs broke into the painter and decorator shop and trashed it. All that police had to do in the morning was follow the multi-coloured foot prints up the pavement....

I've just read Blacks "Murderpedia" and what an awful tale it is. He was undoubtedly a monster of the first degree,with the seemingly usual background.......abandoned by mother,Unknown father,brutal stepdad,stepmother died when eleven and a social outcast.
What stands out in his horrific murder of young girls is although they all bore the same MO,none of them were planned. He undoubtedly took the job delivering posters countrywide with a view to the perverted opportunities it afforded,but,the victims were chance encounters,albeit he knew,they at sometime,would happen and then he would be ready to enact his brutal fantasy. That is what stands out to me......here we have a real life child molester. His aim was always with him,governed by one thing...opportunity. When he struck it was by chance,though he probably knew what was required to be done after he committed his atrocious acts. I think this is the way with these monsters,no surveillance,no particular planning,just a perverted urge acted upon when the opportunity was there,the victim was helpless and the chance of capture minimal anything else would be fraught with risk.

An interview with Genette Tate's father.

http://www.itv.com/news/2016-01-13/genette-tates-father-tells-itv-news-robert-blacks-death-means-i-will-never-be-able-to-grieve-for-my-daughter/

I hadn't heard that there were any plans to charge Black with the murder.

I have always wondered if Genette's father was involved but presumably he was able to provide a solid alibi.

Thank you for that Murderpedia link, Bampots - what a nasty freak Robert Black was.

The bit about him swimming laps in the pool after hours with a broomstick in situ - dear God!!

Local news is reporting that they have two new important pieces of information from two witnesses,they will present a file to the CPS with the aim of them (CPS) saying yes this would have brought a charge against Black.

This link has been posted elsewhere so I'm putting it here too.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3402045/Child-killer-Robert-Black-died-prison-just-days-charged-1978-murder-schoolgirl-Genette-Tate.html

This is the first time - as far as I recall anyway - that I have ever seen a different photo of Genette than the one that was published when she disappeared - obviously taken several years earlier.

The one of her in this article looks nothing like that photo. Like a certain other more recent and infamous case, I wonder why a more up-to-date photo wasn't issued at the time.

I don't think that I felt paranoid about it at the time, just that it was odd. I remember a very strange quote from her father - that schools should take official photos more frequently as the one that was published was out of date.

What??? Did he have no recent family photos? As we now know from the photo in this article, he did have at least one that could have been used.

I've just come across this site which raises some interesting points. It hasn't been updated since 2011 though.

The clip of Mitchell and Lorraine makes me sick. Again.

And what did they do on the sofa when it went to adverts.
