In ‘Today’ magazine, June 1962, Valerie reported on a mixed reaction.
“Friends from the lab have visited me all the time; kept me up to date with what is going on; and even invited me out on a works car rally.”
But she also received anonymous obscene letters: “I was a wicked woman. I had got what I deserved. I had wrecked a good man’s life. They even wrote these things to my parents.”
‘Today’ writer Gill Preece went with Valerie to the cornfield entrance. So the two photos by the gate that appear in ‘Today’ are the only ones that definitely show the entrance to the cornfield. I have posted them here: http://forum.casebook.org/showthread...99&#post304699
There is also a photo on the Telegraph obituary (a wider version is on the Fred Dinenage documentary) which may show the cornfield entrance to the right of Valerie’s shoulder.
