Royal Family Haunted By Dead Body At Queen’s Estate
Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth has started off the year of her Diamond Jubilee with a murder investigation — and on the first day of the year. God save the Queen?
According to the Daily Mail, the body of a woman was discovered by a dog walker on the ground of the Queen’s estate at Sandringham only a mile away from where the Royal family celebrated Christmas. While the house and gardens are private, the rest of the estate, where the body was found, is open to the public.
“Norfolk Police have confirmed the body is that of a young adult woman which has been at that site for between a month and four months,” the Mail reports. “A spokesman said: 'The pathologist believes it is highly unlikely the death was through natural causes. There is no evidence of accidental injury, damage due to firearms or bladed weapon…”
And this isn’t the first time death has been seen lurking in the Queen’s shadow. Last March, the body of Robert Moore, a 69-year-old American, was found dead in St. James Park just a short distance from Buckingham Palace.
Moore was reportedly obsessed with the Queen and often sent her letters and packages, many of which were, we're guessing, not appropriate for tea time. The Telegraph reported on Moore’s death noting, “Police were called and initially ruled his death suspicious, but tests could not find any evidence of injury and the age of the remains meant that no cause of death could be established. A pathologist estimated that the skull and bones had been on the island for about three years.”
Sounds like this is one for the inestimable Sherlock Holmes.
