Am I right in thinking there were no finger prints anywhere in the car - on the gun or on the cartridges? No finger prints of any sort. Not Hanratty's or anyone elses? If Hanratty was careless enough to leave his spent cartridges in his hotel room - why was he careful enough to wipe them of prints?

And another little detail has been bothering me....I presume VS removed her knickers before getting raped? If so, how did Hanratty's DNA get onto them?

And the gun and cartridges found under the bus seat.......60 cartridges? Is that right? Did the gunman actually carry 60 cartridges around with him, plus the loaded gun?

Attached are pages 21 to 25 [nothing edited or omitted] pertaining to Valerie Storie's varying descriptions of the gunman.
These pages need to be read carefully.....

I notice that mistakes are often not corrected and instead just built upon. So, to re-iterate:

1. On 26-Aug, Storie told Mackle the killer’s eyes were blue – sources Hawser and Appeal.

2. On 28-Aug, Storie’s statement describes “icy blue large saucer-like eyes” - sources Hawser, Appeal and Woffinden.

So is what you are saying that until Valerie Storie saw Mrs Gregsten on 31 August she maintained that the assailant had BROWN eyes but from and after the visit of Mrs G she changed that to BLUE eyes?

And that is what Paul Foot stated in his book. Valerie's description of her attacker completely changed after JG's visit to her hospital bed.

I would love to know what was said. I don't believe for a minute that those two women remotely liked eachother so there must have been something else on the agenda.

I've no idea.

The suggestion has been made that Miss Storie changed her description of the assailant's eyes as a result of the visit of Mrs Janet Gregsten. The Hawser Report clearly indicates that Miss Storie was saying the suspect had blue eyes well before any visit from Mrs Gregsten.

An important area of the saga.Dislike of Storie by Janet ,you would imagine would be an understatement. Two visits in 24 hours? Something odd here.One of the authors referred to Janet as a lovely person.Lets give her the benefit of the doubt and say ,she wanted to hear from the horses mouth what had happened ,commiserations, and condolences all round and so forth.
Then the second visit. Why? What further discussions were likely to be needed,in person.Why wasn't she or Valerie asked to elaborate on these meetings by the authors? Or did they ask, and were told 'mind your own business'.

On your mention of the knickers being removed before her rape .This would have made little difference ,because the knickers would almost certainly have been stained to some degree and DNA deposited after the knickers were put back on.
In that layby Storie being reasonably compos mentis ,knew that ,if she survived this horrendous ordeal there would be thorough medical examinations.It would then be apparent that sexual activity had taken place.
I don't believe Mr and Mrs Storie perceived the true involvement of Michael with their daughter ( or Valerie didn't think they did) therefore it was vitally important to her that the only way sexual activity could have taken place, was because it was forced on her. Obviously conjecture is involved here.
I'm not convinced she was raped! Talk of O pos secretor blood group , AB blood group, assumed from Gregsten ,ASSUMED ?FROM FORENSIC SCIENTISTS!

You first.
Interestingly, one of the anomalies I have listed, is :When the assailant climbed into the car (claimed to be in the corn field ) and killing Valerie was not part of the plan ,why would he not take her glasses away from her,' and
throw them under the seat or what ever. I had only understood from Valerie's evidence ,that she wasn't wearing her glasses at a particular moment in time.But perhaps she hadn't had them for the whole event.
She was hardly going to admit not wearing them the whole time when giving evidence, since she was very short sighted, and there was going to be all kinds of things she was supposed to have seen not least her assailant .
I'm as sure as can be, The killer got into the car specifically to murder Gregsten,
Probably with the involvement of Ewer. And Storie was a complete surprise and major problem for him.

Just checking. On YouTube .A plastic case for holding 100 x.38 live cartridges measures approx.7inch x5 inch x 2 inches thick. This would slip snug into a deep suite jacket pocket but with a bit of a bulg .back then they probably came in cardboard boxes 12 to a box ,so 5 boxes in all ,
Didn't I read somewhere that the assailent slapped his pocket and said these are the bullets? And Storie said ' they sounded like marbles? Anyhow , If they were loose in his pocket ,at some point they were packed back into the boxes ,as I think this is how the cleaner found them in the depot.
Fantastic stuff eh?
