You probably would scream, however I can't remember reading any account of a scream being heard, just a faint " oh murder"....and that just doesn't sound realistic to me.

I'm quite certain she did...as did the other person who's name escapes me.

Letter for auction

Hi all,
Sorry but I don't have much info on this, but I recently heard that a letter sent to the police at the time of the murders is up for auction.
Does anyone know more.
Many thanks in advance.
