One noncontroversial point is that there was some discussion between Cross/Lechmere and Paul if she was breathing. This lack of clarity seems unlikely had she been attacked 25 minutes earlier.

I am just saying that to point to how we must be able to sift truths from claims when we look at this case. There is a tendency to follow in the leish provided by Lechmere. That is either wise - or not. The important thing is to keep in mind that both things may apply.
I appreciate you going easy on me Christer

Wickerman: I was quite sure it was variously stated across a number of accounts.

But how is that corroboration if none of those who gave the accounts were there, Jon? Regardless what one thinks about Lechmere and his viability as a suspect, it makes for a very useful exercise to look at the alternative scenarios. I often find it hard myself to drop the uncorroborated parts of Lechmere´s story. To me, that partly explains why he was left alone for so many years - envisaging the story he told himself is so very much easier than it is to envisage the alternative versions.

I appreciate you going easy on me Christer

Ha! I hope thinking about the alternative doesn´t keep you awake and trembling at night...
I am just as happy about how you are able to debate intelligibly, accepting in good mood how we differ from time to time. It´s rarer than it ought to be.
