The axe-murders of retired farmer Fred Maltby and bookmaker Joe Rylatt in Lincoln in 1991 seemed to be linked. They happened within months of each other and were equally brutal, but who was the killer? There was little by way of clues, but what was that paint on the head and hand of victim Mr. Rylatt? Last month’s “Forensic Secrets Of The Days Before DNA” showed the extraordinary detective work of yesteryear. This issue’s “How Brilliant Sleuthing Solved Two Axe-Murders” is the perfect follow-up.
