    The media can always rely on the public's paedo knee-jerk reaction. Everyone hates the kiddy-fiddlers and murderers are even more loathed. There's money in it, simple as that.

    And I bet production companies are now falling over themselves to buy up the rights to display the public grief.

    The marvellous* thing about this digital age is that you can easily become both.


    *Or the opposite.

    Now that satellite technology can identify in detail the remains (sometimes with nothing left in the ground as such) of very ancient cities, I would have thought the same could be used to spot possible grave sites on these moors, finally bringing the story to a close. Although probably not peoples fascination with it.

    There is a large difference is the scale of target and terrain involved though.

    Most of the cities/towns found are a good couple of acres in size and found in relatively stable areas, like forests or fields. So there are differences tree growth/type or crop markings that can be seen from above spreading across a fair sized area.

    With a single grave you are talking about a much smaller area and from what has been posted above the terrian can change drastically within a couple of seasons so over the years any traces of a grave are very likely to have been removed and it is just going to be blind luck if they find something or not.

    Literally needle in a haystack.

    And do we even know, for a fact, that there's anything there?

    Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders was involved in a one off punk band that released a song called Free Hindley ... legend has it that only one copy was pressed, no one was ever allowed to make a copy of it and journalists that were allowed to hear it were escorted in and out of a room so that they could listen .. as far as I know, the song to this day has never been released, Steve Severin has been touted as the vocalist on it ..
