But still it would have been a risk for Mr Lusk to write in his own handwriting, and an even bigger risk to pay someone else to write it for him.
If the Lusk letter was a hoax, them the hoaxer seems to have got lucky with the ginny kidney.
I should imagine the press would pay a good price for Mr Lusks exclusive story it was a bit strange he waited two days before contacting police.
