The city of Bath is notorious for its lack of parking facilities, and a would-be murderer relying on a getaway car would certainly have problems finding a parking space there. That did not worry Wilfred Wilcox, who on SEPTEMBER 21st, 1956, arrived on foot at the Victoria Buildings, Lower Bristol Road, surgery of Dr. Dennis Edwards, pointed a shotgun through the window, and shot him dead.

Arrested and disarmed by two detectives, Wilcox said: “He had it coming to him. There is a woman in it.”

Wilcox, said to be suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, a persecution mania, was found guilty of murder but insane and sent to Broadmoor.
