I find this case particularly frightening and interesting. i assume Rooks Farm has been renamed. The pub Arthur Hosssein drunk in was gutted by fire a couple of years back. And of course the Pelham villages had another mystery a few years ago with the murder of the elderly Colonel that was never solved...

I really wish this case was reopened and examined in every aspect. I suspect it is being shut for reasons connected with one of the players in it.

Default Regarding the Colonel's murder

there have recently been arrests in connection with this. As for re-opening the case of Muriel McKay - why?

If anyone retains an interest in this there are several press photographs of Rooks Farm - where the Hosein brothers lived (exterior and interior) currently for sale on ebay.

Because of a last minute change in a schedule that was just too wonderful to be true for a would-be victim, but terrible for Mrs. McKay. I keep thinking it was too wonderful to be sheer chance. Knowing how Mr. Murdoch considers everyone fodder for his newspapers and media empire, the wife of a leading figure in that organization would be just as "well" treated.

Keep in mind, this is the same man who was listening in on the homes of crime victims a few years back for his "News of the World".

Mrs. Murdoch was supposed to use the limousine from the organization that day - she'd been on a regular time schedule that the Hossein Brothers kept track of. At the last moment she decides not to, and Mrs. Mckay uses it, with devastating results for her. None of this excuses the Hoseins, but one wonders if a second crime was covered up.
