In an effort to at least give the Sun a fair hearing on their failure to point out that there were no bodies buried at the former home of Leslie Ford-Thrussell, I emailed them on Saturday shortly before posting the proceeding article with the following:
Is there any chance you could comment on why there is no
mention either in today's newspaper or on the website of the police's
statement that there are no bodies buried at the former home of Leslie
Previous articles in the Sun
(http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006360391,00.html) suggested that
the the man could go down as the next Fred West, while another
called the home and garden the "House of Horrors"
(http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2006370596,00.html). Surely your
readers would like to be reassured that there were no such grim
discoveries after all?
I got a sort of reply earlier today:
Thank you for taking the time to email us.
I have passed your email onto the relevant department for their attention.
Please note due to the level of emails they receive, the correspondent may not be able to personally respond to your enquiry.
Obsolete awaits a proper response with intrepidation.
