Murder cases? I was first on the scene at two murders, both of them detected, one of them detected by me. I don't think that's too bad.

I didn't argue that it was obvious when she died. I said that it was obvious where she died and that the police surgeon's evidence established the when.

Haven't found anything for 1889 for either of them - to the UK, US, Nicaragua or anywhere else, but clearly Eyraud must have left the country somehow, even if Bompard did not.
