The Sad Case Of Rachel Nickell, Colin Stagg And Robert Napper

What a horrible affair altogether.

 

Did anyone see the Crimewatch special last night concentrating on Colin Stagg.

 

 

First up, (I know he doesn't read this!) but I need to apologise to Colin Stagg. Like most of Britain I had him down as a murderer for many years. This documentary/reconstruction was fascinating.

 

Yeah, he's an unusual guy, a wee bit different, but the way he was hung, drawn and quartered by the Press was unreal. I remember at the time, even outwith the tabloids, it was a stick on that he'd done it

 

A combination of bad luck, unusual private life and pretty much pure idiocy and dodgy tactics by the police ruined this guy's life.

 

The sickening footnote to all this is that Napper was free to murder a mother and her kid a year after he killed Nickell.

 

The police didn't consider him a suspect as he didn't hang around Wimbledon Common, so pursued Stagg instead. Christ...

Agree Donga, when this case was first on the telly the police had us convinced Stagg was guilty, got seven hundred thousand quid but his life is in tatters, police who worked the case should be shafted, clear case of weve our man even though half the evidence was fabricated. Scares the s*** out of me.

I know what you mean everyone, this story had me gripped from the outset, but just like the Vicky Hamilton murder, at least there is now (at long last) a definate conclusion.

 

A story which always intrigued me is this one http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/4661252.stm, did he do it or not, what do you think ? Usually I think yes but there is an element of doubt too, he might not have.

yep, it's a hard one that, I think he probably did it but there's always that wee niggling doubt.

 

One thing he IS guilty of, tho, going by the foto, is nicking Rupert Bear's scarf!

ENTRAPMENT - I really couldn't believe the reconstruction and how Stagg was basically led into his fairytales at the prompting of Miss Honeytrap. I know the law in England differs as that from that up here, but I really don't know how this was accepted in evidence.

And bear in mind that if we still had Capital Punishment Colin Stagg would have been hanged and most of the country would have been happy.

No Colin Stagg was never found guilty so why would anyone have hung him?
