Being a Tuesday, I was once again joined by Margaret Mills who considered the evidence, of whether an Essex man might have been involved in the murder of a king, but before that we had an arresting story from Mexico.
On the 11th of September it has been reported that Mexican police ‘arrested’ a Chucky doll and its owner for allegedly terrorising members of the public.
The suspect, referred to only as Carlos N, is reported to have used the life-sized puppet to wield a large knife and demand money from frightened locals in Monclava, a city in the northern state of Coahuila.
Carlos N was apprehended in the main square of the city, while allegedly under the influence, and charged with disturbing public order and endangering the public.
But then seemingly at the behest of local media, officers also formally arrested the doll itself.
Police then followed through by taking both Carlos and the doll, whose character was popularised in the 1988 horror film Child’s Play, to the local precinct, where both the doll and its owner were handcuffed and had their mug shots taken.
Footage later released showed the orange-haired doll being held up against the wall by one of the officers, the large knife still protruding from its overalls.
Local reports state the officer who placed the doll in handcuffs was later reprimanded for not taking their job seriously.
So back now to the evidence, albeit circumstantial, on the case of the Crown versus SIR WALTER TYRREL.
It seems that Sir Walter was out hunting in the New Forest back in August 1100 with King William II, better known as William Rufus, who was later found dead with an arrow through his lung, whilst of Sir Walter there was no sign. It was subsequently discovered that he’d taken off to France where he is reported to have died of a natural death, many years later.
Listen here to what Margaret said about this event:-
Hope to see you again next week,
