Hey, /x/. Let's talk about the Taman Shud case. Any thoughts or theories? Anyone else fascinated by the case?
>man found slumped against beach wall in South Australia nearly 70 years ago
>has a piece of a page from a book found in his trousers which translates to "the end"
>nobody identifies him
>cause of death unknown, last thing eaten was a pasty
>eventually he is buried and a women is seen putting flowers on his grave
>opens up the possibility that he was a spy and was poisoned
>no one to this day has identified him and no one was apprehended
There's a bunch I'm missing but that should do.
Eh, I live in the next suburb over and the general consensus here is it was just this dude who knocked himself off and this lady knew who he was but denied it because they had an illegitimate kid and she was married.
And they're all dead so we'll never know.
open and shut, he was a Soviet agent sent to spy on the British nuclear and rocket testing that was happening in SA back then at woomera. they were all overt the place before the formation of ASIS.
They did talk to her but I can't remember exactly what she said. She was a nurse and likely didn't say everything she actually knew. I believe she died in 2007 and her family said that she may have had a son with the man.
I've been to his grave in Adelaide.
The thing is does the woman putting flowers on his grave actually know him? It's kind of a thing here to put flowers on the graves of people who don't "have anybody to mourn them." It's mostly funeral/graveyard staff or obit lurkers who do it.
Personally, I think it's just a suicide.
>some random nobody dies of an aneurysm on the beach after work
>nobody identifies him because sometimes that's how people are and life is
>cops are incompetent as fuck about it, investigation done sloppily and lazily
>all forensic and postmortem investigation is equally as lazy because they weren't murdered
>babby's first John Doe
