THE SOMERTON MAN: THE BIG PICTURE, THREE SUICIDES AND AN ASSASSINATION?


 EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY...


I put this Google Map together to better illustrate the series of what I think are linked events, 4 deaths in all, that took place in Australia between 1945 and 1948 and that were of relevance to the Somerton Man case.

When you study the map you will see that I have included the Tibor Kaldor case as well as the George Marshall and Gwyneth Dorothy Graham cases. All up including the SM case we have four events that were all initially thought of as likely suicides.

Three of these deaths were poisonings and one, Gwyneth Dorothy Graham, was thought to have slit her own wrists in a hot bath at a flat she shared with a Helmut Hendon in Kings Cross, Sydney just 21 days after the finding of the body of her friend, George Marshall.

On digging through the various files and inquest information, I came across hitherto unnoticed information regarding one of the people associated with the case. This information could mark yet another pivotal moment in the investigation of the Somerton Man case.

More to follow in the next post.

  1. Exhumation underway. News services just announced that work has started, footage of excavator at West Terrace Cemetery. Let's hope there isn't an accident that damages the remains. Specifically the teeth, the image from 48 is the only record that will prove the man on whom the autopsy was performed is the same man exhumed today.
