On Saturday 18th September 1948, the body Vera Crawford, an unwell woman was found dead in her hotel bed. It seemed as if she had died of natural causes but being required to inform the victim’s next-of-kin, the Police uncovered a murder which was both sinister and tragic.
As many photos of the case are copyright protected by greedy news organisations (and I don't want to be billed £300 for copyright infringement again), to view them, take a peek at my entirely legal social media accounts - Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
I've added the location of The Grenville Hotel at 1 Grenville Street, WC1, marked with a yellow !. It's at the bottom by 'Coram's Fields'. To use the map, simply click it. If you want to see the other murder maps, such as Soho and Paddington, you access them by clicking here.
And for your enjoyment, here's two short videos. The first shows you Grenville Street today and the second shows you The Round Table public house where they drank before the murder. These videos are only one minute long and is a link to youtube, so it won't eat up your data.
I've also posted some photos to aid your "enjoyment" of the episode. These photos were taken by myself (copyright Murder Mile) or granted under Government License 3.0, where applicable.
