I only caught the end of the Sky transmission from outside the court but, Im assuming, the son of the murdered nanny Sandra Rivett is not overly joyous at the decision?
Its taken 42 years to declare him officially dead.
Reggie Perrin was declared dead in only one series.
Our legal system does like to drag its fucking heels a bit, doesn't it.
It was only 18 years for Suzy Lamplugh to be declared officially dead. Was there a family fortune at stack in this case or was it just a title?
A little of both, but the two go together in as much as being Lord Lucan might be beneficial to the new holder of the title - assuming the octogenarian doesn't stumble out of the bush and blow the deal.
