There has been an update on an incident I reported on last year, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/dovestone-man.html. "Dovestone Man" has now been positively identified as David Lytton, a sixty-seven year old originally from
However, as the earlier evidence suggested, he has been living in Pakistan
for the last ten years of his life. He flew from to Lahore,
and arrived two days before his death. His friends and family described him as
a "bit of a loner". He liked to compartmentalize his life, keeping
different friends separate from each other. Detective Sergeant Colman who
handled the police investigation said he'd never come across a similar case.
The coroner's inquest ruled that he had died of strychnine poisoning. He had
ingested the poison himself from a bottle he had brought with him to the
location. He had few other possessions on his person. It's still unknown why he
travelled all the way from London
Heathrow Airport, UK Pakistan
to a hillside in Greater Manchester in order to die deliberately on that spot.
There is one small lead, a plane crash that killed some members of this family
that happened in the Dovestone area. It is even possible that Mr Lytton was on
board that plane and survived the impact. However, the plane crash took place
in 1949 when he would have been a newborn baby, if he'd even been born at all.
Had his pregnant mother been one of the survivors? Nobody knows except David
Lytton himself, and even his motives might have been subconscious. RIP. Source:
