However that is a different thing from saying that he is a likely killer. The evidence which would support this view is either incomplete or non existent.
And because of this neither can he be dismissed entirely.
exactly El. Although I would add he had a discrepancy with Mizen and he used a different name. both of course probably have an innocent explanation, but flags to me that even need to be explained away.
Im also probably a bit sympathetic to the "witness" suspects, as I favor hutch and also think these types need more looking into-like Richardson, bowyer, and possibly Barnett.
