There was a well-publicised case in London in 1985 when a mother claimed that her daughter and another child had been abducted in a park.

This is the best link I can find, which doesn't say much about the others.

Another fake abduction in 1984.

I didn't know until now (see the link) that Louise's father was later jailed for killing his brother.

... my personal fave is the chap who got his mates to stage a kidnap so he could go out on the lash with them.

Reminds me of a time when I told ex Mrs Andrew I was having a weekend away with the lads many moons ago. Spent a week in Crete instead with the lads but couldn't bring myself to tell her that I was going.

And another time, I was actually away in Zante with ex Mrs Andrew. She was unwell so had an early night. I waited for her to fall asleep and pushed the moped down the road, roared it up and went into town for a few. Lost my moped, slept on the beach, walked 6 miles back at lunchtime the next day. Hotel staff and the Greek police were all there on my return with a very worried but now angry ex Mrs Andrew.

I suppose there's a reason why she's an ex.

I was reading about this last week on my hols and just found the article again.

Well I suppose it's more believable than a certain other 'abduction'.

She seems to have omitted her UFO experiences from her website.

I suppose calling an Alien 'Mum' would perhaps dilute her credibility somewhat.

All mumbo-jumbo anyway. (IMO)

The murder of Alison Shaughnessy

Post  Freedom on Thu 18 Aug 2016, 11:28 am

https://thetruthshallsetyoufreeblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/05/lest-we-forget-the-brutal-murder-of-alison-shaughnessy/

The case of a newlywed who was murdered in her own home.

Two sisters (one of whom was having an affair with the victim's husband) were convicted but later acquitted.

I must admit to thinking that they were most likely guilty.

This is a shocking one when you read up on some of the details that have since been released after they were charged. Truly horrendous.

A 'harsh' sentence for a change for this one taken from Sky News website...

That link is a bit moralising and judgemental.

This one is better; I do have to admit that the forensic evidence was very thin in the case against the sisters.

This sounds dreadful - the Texas case.

Memories of the Derek Bentley case in the early 1950s.

Yes I saw that too. I wonder what relation Peter and Rebecca Eccleston - who played children - are to him.

I knew all about the case beforehand - not that I remember it when it happened, I hasten to add. It was very controversial but that was the law at the time.

The case of Mary Bell

Post  Freedom on Wed 24 Aug 2016, 6:22 pm

25 years before James Bulger, there was this case involving two children attacking others, killing two of them.

It was a bit before your time and didn't get anything like the publicity that the James Bulger case did.

There was a lot of shock though that a girl of such a young age could kill two small boys.

There was controversy when Mary was released from prison after 12 years and given a life time's anonymity - that's similar to the Bulger killers - though she, as far as is known, has never committed any further crimes.

I'm not sure about this one. I don't think there can be any doubt that Mark Chapman was mentally ill when he killed John Lennon.

If he is no longer a danger to himself or anyone else, I think that he should be released.

The same goes for Sirhan Sirhan who shot Robert Kennedy.

45 years and counting for Sirhan. He'll never get out. Neither will Chapman, IMO.

Anyway Sirhan was stitched up and under some Government Mind-Control drugs or something... If you believe the Conspiracy stuff floating about from what I read years ago.

For some reason, the conspiracy theories about the RFK assassination never took hold in the way that they did for JFK.

There were suggestions that another gun was fired but I wonder if it belonged to a security agent and went off accidentally in all the confusion.

There is a theory (believable compared with some of the others) that it was a stray bullet from a secret serviceman that was the fatal from the front shot that killed JFK.
