Two further things that testify against a killer other than Wallace in my view.

If it's so cut and dry, then why is this such an enduring mystery?

And, welcome back :)

It's good to have more people discussing this, particularly dissenting views.

I think the Qualtrough ruse, while we can poke (correct in my opinion!) holes in the likelihood of its genuineness, was the best alibi Wallace could hope for.

Hi Spitfire,

That is not surprising to me since I believe that production hints strongly at Wallace's guilt. So much so that Jonathan Goodman wrote an angry letter about it!

OneRound,

I agree Wallace could have just been an odd personality. It certainly seems he was of a strange, sad, and rather "geeky" personality. One can find some sympathy for such a man, at least I...

yes I agree, this is the crucial point. The Qualtrough plot hurts anyone else who could have gone the same night with less fuss, but it helps only Wallace by introducing mystery and a bogus...

I think the only way Wallace could have been innocent is if the plan wasn't a plan at all, just a prank of sorts that the caller say Parry, decided to follow up on the next day to check...

Hi Herlock, incisive points as usual. The bold especially highlights how the robbery gone wrong scenario is logically inconsistent.
