John G, very possible. It is not the scenario I depict in my reconstruction of Parry and Accomplice theories, but yours would work, too. Possibly the killer was asked to leave, changed his mind when...

Hi AS,

Let's assume Wallace wanted to pin the blame on either Parry or Marsden (evidence: his second statement where he spends 10 paragraphs on both). If so, the pool of suspects (other than...

John, that's a good point. In fact, we do not know when Wallace staged the robbery, if he was guilty, apart from it was before the Johnstons entered. So, he would have had all of the tram journey...

And when he entered the house alone before getting the Johnstons, could he not rectify any mistakes? If he was guilty, entering the house alone makes good sense - surely he was checking...

Hi AS,

Let's take one point at a time.

If Wallace plans the murder and intentionally replaces the cashbox, he must realise the thief knew the location of the cashbox. This limits the number of...

True, Wallace was not arrested until 2 Feb but the rumours on the night of 20 January 1931 was that Wallace had been. Also, if Parry arrived much later than Parkes remembered, and fished...

AS, of course that is possible, but is it probable? What was Parry up to that he could not tell the police even though he was being question in connection with a murder charge?

I appreciate you...

To be fair John, there is no substantive evidence it was Wallace, Parry or Marsden. Two facts: Parry lies about his whereabouts at the time of the call and had an alibi for the time of the murder.

But when Joseph (Marsden) is on the doorstep he cannot pretend to be Qualtrough - Julia knows him. So, the name drops out as irrelevant, I would suggest. When Wallace notices the money...

I would say these cancel out: Parry saw Wallace leave (walked or hopped in his car) and went to the call box. Wallace walked to call box. It was a 3'50" walk from No. 29, but nothing hinges on this...

If the police were negligent, and did not test, then the probability that Wallace was guilty rises a small amount; this can...
