Sticking a missing celebrety on next year's list feels like cheating. It may also not be a wise move, as people can remain missing for a very long time.
If missing people were eligible we could include Lord Lucan next year.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

Hasn't he been declared dead yet? What is the law regarding this situation?

What's the deal with Lord Lucan?

Is he a contender for the 2007 list?

If Richard John Bingham, as he was once known, is still alive, he will be 72 on December 18 2006.

Living on the run must have cut his life-expectancy by a few years.

As far as I know Lord Lucan was legally declared dead in 2004. I think his son inherited the title?

Aye, a forum favourite in the making but his grey area status re the live/dead issue should bar him from the top fifty.

Then again if anyone finds him alive with a new family say - in Botswana - I reckon we could make a good case to add any nanny he might employ to the Deathlist.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Lord Lucan was officially declared dead by the High Court in 1999.
However the case was reopened in October 2004

Could this be Lucan?

John Thurso, Lib Dem MP, who was previously an heriditary member of the House of Lords, looks rather like Lucan.

Hackenslash me old mate, I thought it was widely known.

One of the most promising Lucan leads in 1999 suggested he'd been flown out of the UK by racing driver Graham Hill and eventually made his way to the reclusive community of Brit expats in Botswana, where he continued to live. There were a few sightings and some circumstantial evidence that a few of his old mates - like racehorse owner Robert Sangster - had sorted out something in the way of financial support to make this happen.

This all featured in a TV documentary in 1999, can't remember the title of the programme though.

Of course.

Another lead was that he was fed to John Aspinall's tigers at his Canterbury-based animal-park.

Best one was that he was Jungle Barry in India, although he turned out to be a random tramp.

He was an old folksinging mate of people like Mike Harding and the author who thought he'd found Lucan came off looking a total tosser once a few of the surviving UK folksters pointed out they could have saved him years of pointless 'research' if he'd only shown them one picture. Saw one of those 'Lucan' books for 1 in hardback about six months after it came out.

There's one claim that Lucan was shot According to a neighbour, they heard gunshots on the night and that his body was buried in the gardens of Grants Hill House in Uckfield

Lucan I'm pretty sure is still alive somewhere if he didn't commit suicide.
i.e. he's alive if he's not dead!

Elvis Lives of course .... as does Princess Diana (faked her death to escape publicity)

Since Jeremy Thorpe appears to have entertained a few young 'uns and stimulated those old enough to remember I thought we might give another cult figure of the era a bunk up the DL. For those not up to speed on 'Lucky' Lucan this link should do the trick.

Lucan Forum so dull and lifeless it makes yesterday's lacklustre collision of Brentford and Carlisle look like England's World Cup victory. We could invite those that find this desperate forum onto our thread.

I did think of linking that forum here by way of doubling their post total. I'm guessing that people do visit via it's Wiki link, discover the lack of activity and leave again. I decided against it because I think we might just generate pointless ranting and we're not exactly short of members at the moment.
