McAskell murders set to be solved?

Could Stroud’s most infamous criminal case soon be solved?

The Stroud and District Historical Society had a visit on the weekend from two researchers – Louise and Gerald Steding – who are investigating the 1878 unsolved double murder of Alan and Mary McAskell.

Louise is a forensic archeologist and Gerald is a photographer. They are looking to use the McAskell murders as one of a series of books, written by Louise, to be used as teaching resource for forensics, criminology and general interest.

They’ll definitely be visiting Stroud again, and who knows, the mystery could be solved!
