    Thanks DJA
    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

    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?

    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.

    thanks DJA
    so they never exhumed him for the DNA? I thought they had and where in process of analyzing the DNA?

    now this? where a professor is using DNA from strands of hair that was caught in the death Mask? WTF? Id say theres a little probem with the provenance then. But I guess well see.. now that theres a name hopefully it pans out.
