Thanks for that Monty....I had actually though I remembered they broke through an adjoining wall, but that makes sense. I do believe though that they (the police) didnt immediately recognize the entry method. My point about checking the sewers may still apply to the Post Office job, depending on when that was done.

Hmm..they left the building locked from the inside....just like 13 Millers Court.....some avid stamp collectors branching out perhaps?

Cheers Monty.

The report of the street cleaners did intrigue me. However the timing of the Foreman and locations didnt add up. The team were further away that 20 yards and they do not report Morris and the Police scuttling about. I think this was a case of someone placing more importance to their events than was actually the truth.

Ass-uming that this is a fair recollection, what then is length of attack?

It terms of what?

The actual physical attack itself of from picking her up to fleeing?

disregard Sir I thought it out, my interest was minimum time for killer/victim contact.
