    There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

            none of the links posted say anything about the dna from the exhumed body. theyre all talking about dna from hair given to the professor tjat was stuck in the death mask. obviously this raises questions about the provenance of the dna/hair.

            earlier in this thread it was mentioned the police exhumed the body to analize dna directly from the body.

            that is my question..what is going with the dna analysis from tje exhumed body that the police were doing?

              What an interesting result to a long investigation! Thank you to those who provided links to news articles.

              Mr. Webb seems to have been of an era where he would be educated enough to know the "Rubiyat", and he seems handsome enough in the forensic reconstruction. I wonder if his wearing clothes marked as his brother-in-law's offers insight to his possible economic status at the time of his death? If he was a gambler, as suggested, he might have been poverty-stricken.

              There are always questions, I guess.

                The police DNA analysis is purposely being kept separate.More to come.

                    Hope this latest find leads to a solution. One thing I find odd is the suggestion the clothes ,or part of them were hand me downs.Surely an electrical engineer would be earning enough that he wouldn't be in a situation where he needed hand me downs?

                            interesting. the keane connection is another link theyre probably on the right track.

                            another odd aspect of the case, is that Abbott, the professor who broke this is married to the grand daughter of jo thompson, the nurse whos phone number was found in the dead mans book. so weird

                              Player in the front row is an excellent match.

                                I think theyrs getting closer to nailing this down. wish the police would get cracking on the DNA from the exhumed body though.

                                BTW Ive come to the conclusion that heartbreaker nurse Jo thompson, was in the habit of giving her lovers the poem book the Rubiyat.
