WHO KILLED BLAIR PEACH?  This is an excerpt, the dialogue taken directly from the police record—

INVESTIGATOR:   Constable, do you remember how the van you were in, SPG Carrier U1/1, was first driven into Beachcroft Avenue?

COP:  No.

INVESTIGATOR:  Did it stop?

COP:  I can’t recall.

INVESTIGATOR:  Did it slow down?

COP:  Can’t recall.

INVESTIGATOR:  Did it make a clean sweep of the area?

COP:  I really can’t recall.

INVESTIGATOR:  Who was in the van?

COP:  I don’t remember.

INVESTIGATOR  Who was in charge of the van?

COP:  I don’t know.

INVESTIGATOR:  Were you ordered to get out of the van?

COP:  I don’t know.

INVESTIGATOR:  You must have been ordered out.

COP:  I can’t remember.

INVESTIGATOR:  Which door did you get out?

COP:  I can’t recall.

INVESTIGATOR:  But you do remember—this is your statement—you do remember getting out of the van, seeing a white man holding a brick as if to throw it at you, then chasing the man, who had turned and run away, back toward the Broadway, thus taking you out of the area where the incident occurred and hence in no way involved in the death of the deceased?

COP:  Yes.


With Donogh Rees, Michael Hurst.
