Murder Most Foul No. 69
One of the most exciting British manhunts of the early 1920s came to an end when insurance agent Edward Black was arrested in Liverpool. He was then escorted back to St. Austell, Cornwall, to face a charge of murdering his wife with arsenic. But did he? And if he did, what was his motive? Down the years many people have expressed reservations about the verdict. Black fled Tregonissey nearly three days before his wife died. His financial problems and a pending false pretences investigation might have been the motive for taking flight. But were they enough for him to commit murder? Read this Cornish poison classic on and you tell us via Opinion.
