Peter Pickering dies following his trial

Category : Elsie

After 13 months of waiting I am able to report some progress with regard to Peter Pickering. He finally appeared at Leeds Crown Court via video link from Swindon Crown Court. After a week long trial he was found guilty of the charge of abduction and rape of a woman from Sheffield in 1972.

Unfortunately just a few days later prior to him being sentenced, the judge was awaiting Pickering’s medical reports, Pickering died on Saturday 24th March.

From West Yorkshire Police statements they appear to be convinced that Pickering was almost certainly responsible for Elsie Frosts murder . He was still on bail for that case when he died. He had been on bail for 13 months with no police statements.

Peter Pickering – Police Expected To Charge With Elsie Frost Murder

Category : Elsie

West Yorkshire Police have had their plans to charge Peter Pickering with the murder of Elsie Frost thwarted due to his death on 24th March.

Detective Superintendent Nick Warren says that he would like to make public the case they had against Pickering to help give some closure to the Frost and Spencer family. He suggested they may need another inquest into Elsie’s death to do this.

I await further statements with baited breath.
