The Case of the Missing Bloodstain

The Scene of the Murders

The floorplan of the Crewe house as drawn by draftsman Brian Keith Sly two days after the Crewes were found missing. Sly’s detail included an indication of the position the couch in the lounge would have taken when it was swivelled forward towards the fireplace. It had rested there in a pool of Jeannette Crewe’s blood and created the arc of blood Sly depicted on the floor when it was pushed back again (click on the plan to enlarge it) .
