Sir Ludovic Kennedy has died

Sir Ludvic Kennedy has died at the age of 89.  He campaigned against miscarriages of justice and wrote the book '10 Rillington Place' where he argued that Timothy Evans was innocent of the murder of his daughter. This led to a posthumous pardon for Evans.

Re: Sir Ludovic Kennedy has died

Yes very sad. The world will not see his like again for a long time methinks.
He wrote of some very good wartime investigations too.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Sir Ludovic Kennedy has died

I respected him for his stance and work with the VES (Voluntary Euthanasia Society), as well as his journalism.
In light of this, I am glad that he lived a long and productive life with (presumably) the peaceful end that he wanted as a choice for everyone (I understand that he died from pneumonia).
