I read in a JTR book that the positions of the bodies were exactly laid out in relation to each other. I can't recall the numbers. But it was sort of like the distance between body 3 and 1 were the same as the distance between 2 and 4 and so on.
Anyone know what I'm talking about? You can see by the layout on a map that the bodies form an almost perfect cross/diamond.
I was thinking the same. Not that I've read the book, but that kind of theorising reminds me of Ivor Edwards all the way.
I’m certain that this is the one Gareth. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve just checked my copy (bought at a time when I used to buy all new JTR books) and it’s full of weird diagrams and suchlike. The kind of book that you could serve up for Christmas dinner with stuffing and roast potatoes.
"There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact!"
Well, we don't know how sloppy or accurate he was. But here's the results of his measurements.
The distance from site 1 to site 2 was 930 yards
The distance from site 2 to site 4 was 930 yards
The distance from site 3 to site 4 was 950 yards
The distance from site 3 to site 5 was 950 yards
These are the measurements found using a map. Ivor Edwards also confirmed the distance with a surveyor's wheel.
Also "Compass bearings were taken in the field it was found that sites 1,2,3,4 were located due east, south, north and west."
If true then this proves that the attacks were not just by some random maniac. if anyone has a map of the murder area and can disprove Ivor Edward's findings that would be good.
