    That’s a sore point at the moment for my brother who is a WBA fan Sam. They lost the first leg of the play-offs to local rivals Aston Villa today. He’s insistent that Villa got a penalty from a dive and that WBA were denied a genuine one. Then, to rub it in, their best goal scorer got sent off and will miss the second leg.

    The worst part is that he works in Birmingham as the only WBA fan amongst a horde of Villa and Blues fans. To say that he’s not looking forward to Monday morning is an understatement.

      Maybe he commited these murders while sleepwalking?
      That's an interesting idea. Sleepwalking, or in some kind of dissociative state?

        But then how would you explain his aptitude for escaping?

          What are dreams, if not escapism?

            Consider the case of Robert Ledru, in 1887. He was a well-regarded French detective tasked with solving a bizarre, apparently motiveless murder. After considering the evidence at some length, he concluded that he must have done it himself, while sleepwalking. The police suspected that he'd had a nervous breakdown at first, but he was able to prove the case against himself beyond any doubt. He spent the rest of his life in protective custody with a policeman guarding his bedroom.

            Had any other detective been assigned the case, he might not have been caught, as he recognized certain personal signs that pointed to his own handiwork. It's an unusual case, but the possibility of a sleepwalker escaping after a murder does exist.

              Sounds like an urban myth to me...

                  Either or an early example of mind control?
                  It was me. I let the dogs out.
