    Just thought on this. There will be family members still out there. This will still be upsetting to them. I know we will all think about what we post here so as not to cause any distress to any family who may read this thread.
    Yes Spike a very good point, and mainly why I didn't mention Rix's name initially. (I didn't Know the unfortunate young victims name)
    Incidentally I have posted thanking everybody for their helpful responses but it hasn't appeared. Something did pop up saying it needed approval first, don't know why, possibly with me being a newbie.

    Weird,if you know the badge the school uniform should be easy to locate.

    I dont know. It was early 60's so lots of schools wore uniforms like that. I wore a cap when I started school in the 70's.

    Her house was next to Childwall girls school. Ihave seen the badge on something.

    OLA school had a bird on the badge. But I would not think she went to a Catholic school as she is buried at All Saints?

    Looks like the Belvedere uniform,but it could be anywhere.

    I pass the house daily as my daughter goes to a school in Wavertree. The poor child. I must admit I could not live in the house and wonder if the residents know what went on there.

    I first heard of this brutal murder from Tom Slemen and found it very interesting.

    I live in Naylorsfield and its not everyday you hear of something like this around these parts.

    LiverbirdLou, there is Tom's take on it earlier in the thread. Sounds like Goatsh1t to me though!


    Here is one comment left on the forum it appears on....

    Another reply to the Slemen Madness


    I suppose Bigfoot was playing the Banjo and Donkey Kong the Bongos?

    Where are these stories from. I grew up there as a kid and never once heard anything as daft as that.

    Tom started it.


    You will see i've bumped the Knotty Ash murder up as this murder was mentioned on that thread too. Georgeporgie found it earlier on this thread.

    Avery sad and poignant visit to the grave today. Such a waste of a young life.

    No Mr. u/w no intent to protect him at all, started the thread through curiosity but aware that family members likely to still be alive and being a newbie a bit uncertain of the protocols and procedures.

    Nobby will you tell us more about Rix or the area back then?

    Do you know what school Rix went too?

    Im interested in the area as I lived around there as a kid.

    What was it like during the investigation around that area?

    Do tou recall it being in the press etc?

    What were the locals saying?

    Im just a nosey sod who is interested to hear about this.

    Spike, sorry about this, have replied twice and both posts disappeared. Getting a bit p...ed off.

    Ok now finally. Didn't live in the area, just knew Rix a bit through someone else, but I know he went to the Holt grammar school on Queens Drive.

    Don't remember much from the Echo reports, mainly that he made a statement saying he wanted to kill somebody, and that he went to Broadmoor. Also that his father was a merchant seaman and the shipping company flew him home.

    What I find interesting now is (1) underworld saying that he was identified through police door to door work, this is good stuff--any more detail? (2) The file in the National Archive is sealed for 85 years, is this the norm or does this tell us something? (3) Although only 15 his name was made public, was this standard practice then?

    More questions than answers Spike. And if you are a nosey sod that makes two of us.

    He was identified through door to door work. The Detective was'nt happy with answers he gave and they found blood stained clothing in his bedroom. You are right about his father being a seaman too.

    I would say it is normal for the National Archives to put a lengthy seal on such cases as family are still alive and the details of the murders can be horrifying.
