On the 15th of November 1912, two young cousins, ten year old Amy Collinson and seven year old Frances Nicholson were brutally murdered on their way home from a rehearsal for a Christmas concert. Amy had also been raped. A 24 year old man called Walter Sykes was soon arrested, tried and executed, but local people thought that Sykes was innocent and that Amy's foster father, Arthur Collinson, was the perpetrator of this horrendous crime. More than a hundred years later, local people still believe that to be true. The author examines all the evidence to try to answer the question as to who committed the crime. Was it Walter Sykes? Was it Arthur Collinson? Or was it someone else? Examine the evidence, and see what you think.
