John G, very possible. It is not the scenario I depict in my reconstruction of Parry and Accomplice theories, but yours would work, too. Possibly the killer was asked to leave, changed his mind when in the hall, grabbed the mackintosh... There are many variations. I think the key aspect of the sneak-thievery is that it explains why the cashbox was replaced. This I cover in my book, of course, giving credit to Hussey, who first suggested it in his Parry theory (1972).

So, the two key theories for the cashbox replacement seem to be:

Sneak-thief who is caught just after the act;

Wallace staging a robbery and (arguably) making a mistake.
