The Somerton Man Case. The body of a man found on an Australian beach close to a major Atomic Testing ground, he was probably poisoned, a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and an unbroken Code page found and associated to him. Set against a Cold War background in 1948, was this man a spy? We think so and this blog focuses on the evidence that was left behind and in some cases missed, the Code page, Dry Cleaning numbers, A Poem and a small, torn piece of paper bearing the words TAMAM SHUD.

Somerton Man: WE HAVE A NAME


In December 1948 in Adelaide, a man was found dead, he had been poisoned. He was found not far from the premises of Jestyn and Prosper Thompson.

Who was he? Where had he come from?

We have a name and in the next few days, we will publish some incredible news.

In the meantime, we can confirm that there were two bodies and both died from poisoning.

One man was a language teacher and lived just 25 minutes away from Mentone where Jestyn grew up and his initials were, coincidentally, T.K.

We will be explaining how the tan was acquired and how it was that some items of clothing came to bear the name Keane, and as for SM's dentures, we can tell you that they very probably lie at the bottom of an ocean.

You will notice that it is something that 'we' will publish, that's because this a joint effort, based upon the findings of another person. A known and trusted person who has long been involved in the SM case and is committed to finding out just who he was.

There's so much more..
