How did PC Neil not see these 2 men? He is a police official on a patrol, he should be looking for suspicuse activity, paying colser attention to things going on around him on his beat. I can only really think of 2 possibilities.
1. he wasnt where he said he was.
2. he wasnt there when he said he was.
Did he intentionaly lie about the time/place? Or was he just mistaken in his memory.
There isnt a single thread in the police officials page for this guy and I have found very little info him in other places. Can someone point me to more info about this officer?

Do we know how Winthrop Street lay on the beat? Perhaps he was down that section as they went by. What was the actual physical distance between those two streets?

Hi C.F.,

Yes it was on his beat.
One of the issues over the years has been what exactly was Neil's beat. There are no official records of which I am aware.
We have 2 press reports one in the Times suggesting it was a very short beat and a much longer article in the Echo 21st September giving details of 5 beats, Neil's is the third.
Neil himself says it took 30 minutes since he was there last and that he had been as far as Bakers Row, but gives no more details.
In my work on Bucks Row I have already touched on this, and shall be going into far more detail in part 3 of the Project.
If the interpretation of the data is correct, it is entirely possible that the Carmen did not see Neil or he they.
Indeed even if he was on the very short beat suggested in the Times it is still very possible for them not to have seen each other.

All the best

Steve
