Default Michael Barrett

Hi All,

I have just heard that Mike Barrett passed away on January 29th. A burial service was held last Thursday.

His death was not alcohol related.

Love,

Caz

Hi Caz

Thanks for passing on the news. As I have mentioned elsewhere to you, in doing a massive cleanout of our computer room I came across some papers related to the Maybrick Diary and Anne and Mike Barrett came to mind.

Best regards

Chris

Sad news.

Any idea how old he was?

I don't know his exact year of birth but I'd guess he was in his mid to late 60s if he was close in age to his ex-wife Anne.

His death was not alcohol related? Is that the usual disclaimer here?

No, Errata, it isn't.

I was anticipating the question in this case, so nobody need ask it.

Have a nice day.

I saw Mike Barrett last summer he told me had been in poor health and he was of the booze it was the first time I'd seen him in a long time.I think anyone who met him would agree that he was a very colourfull character.
