Geocache Description:


THE OXFORD TIMES ON LINE
Serial killer on the loose.
Police need publics' help.

Story by P Highsmith - Crime Editor.
The Oxford Mail can exclusively reveal that the Thames Valley Police are mystified by the sudden appearance of three bodies found in shallow graves in Oxfordshire.

The bodies, thought to be that of well known Oxfordshire residents, have just been bought to their attention after years of lying undiscovered to the public at large.

A spokesperson for the Police at their headquarters in Kidlington stated that there was a possible link to the grave of George Orwell that was found in Sutton Courtenay near Didcot during the mid fifties.

They went on to add that they feared that more bodies could be found in the future. An official appeal for assistance will be made by the force in a television appeal on the BBC program Crimewatch.

However, The Oxford Mail has gained access to the on-line diary of Detective Sergeant Lewis who is assisting Chief Inspector Morse in the hunt for the killer. For the benefit of our customers and the public at large.
this link will take you straight to that diary.

Off the record, a detective working with the investigation team told our Crime reporter that resources within  Thames Valley Police Headquarters had been stretched to breaking point. new working rotas, reliance on their own cars and  poor moral were largely to blame.

Whilst help from the public at large was most welcome on this mystifying case, the Police urge the residents of Oxfordshire to take the utmost of care.

Sources to the Oxford Mail have also given us access to two pieces of evidence that were found in Sutton Courtney all those years ago. At present the Police can not establish a link between them and the bodies, but DS Lewis, in his diary entries believes that they are connected.

One, an aluminum tag some 40mm by 20mm was found half pinned to notice board of All Saints Sutton Courtenay and the other, a piece of paper which Police believe to be the killers grided code.
