Timothy Evans: the move to London

Timothy Evans: Doubts arise

Timothy Evans’ second confession: his neighbour in the downstairs flat, John Christie, had offered to abort the foetus (abortion was illegal at the time). The morning of November 8th, Timothy Evans had gone to work, leaving Beryl in his neighbour’s “capable” hands. That evening, he returned home to be told Beryl was dead. His neighbour had promised to dispose of the body down the manhole, and find a couple to adopt Geraldine. He said it would be best if Evans got out of London in the meantime.
