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.
