It was a complete mystery why Belgian artist Ernest Castlelein, 63, was found dying in his studio flat in Cromwell Road, south Kensington, on Wednesday, July 25th, 1945. He was lying naked by his bed, beaten around the head with a blunt instrument. But there was no sign of a break-in, no sign of a struggle, no sign of robbery, and no weapon was found. Mr. Castlelein wasn’t a homosexual and after extensive inquiries in Belgium it was established that the murder was unconnected with the war.
