Softcover. More than 50yrs. have passed since the brutal murders of the manager and his assistant at the Cameo Cinema in Liverpool. Immediately, the police launched a massive manhunt and over 9,500 houses were visted, 75,000 people interviewed, 1,800 fingerprints taken and handwriting samples taken from 1,840 women. The subsequent trial and conviction of George Kelly and Charles Connolly made legal history. The first trial was the longest murder trial in England and Kelly became one of few men to be tried twice for a capital offence. The conviction and execution of Kelly is one of the milestones which led to the eventual ending of capital punishment. The probability of a miscarriage of justice has ensured the Cameo case a lasting place in Livepool folklore. With Appendices. 223pp. trade size softcover. Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
