    Default The Murders of Lock Ah Tam and Jaw Kay

    (Don't know if the above is the correct spelling.) I have often heard the storey of the murder, in the Scotland Road area, of the Chinese laundry man Ah Thi. I think it happened in the first or second decade of the twentieth century. I would be grateful if anyone could enlarge on the storey.

    Hi Sloyne

    This sounds like something that author Richard Whittington-Egan might have written about. Possibly our friend MissInformed can confirm. . .

    hi sloyne and chris

    I don't think I have heard of this particular murder. And I don't think Mr Whittington Egan has ever written about it, since I have all of his Liverpool books and it isn't in any of them.
    I have heard of a similar murder in America (I think). A locked room murder.
    But, I can't think of anything similar in Liverpool.
    Will have a little scout around online and see if I can come up with anything folks...

    are you sure you don't mean Lock Ah Tam?

    There is a whole section about him in a Whittington Egan book.

    No, its a different one to Lock Ah Tam. Sloyne may be referring to the case of Jaw Kay, a laundry man whose body was found in his flat in Scotland Road on the same night as the Hanging Boy case. He appeared to have been stabbed several times and the motive was robbery. The murderer was never found. Sorry I cant provide any additional source information.

    Possibly, It was a long time ago that I heard the story. Thanks for the effort.
