Red Shoe Murder

York Press: Red Shoe Murder Red Shoe Murder

 NORMA Dale was murdered in September 1946 and not the early 1950s, as stated in the letter of April 4.

This incident has always been known locally as the ‘Red Shoe Murder.’ Norma had been to her dancing class on the Saturday she disappeared, wearing a pair of red shoes. One of the shoes was missing when her body was discovered and like the culprit, was never found.

Mrs G Townend, Main Street, Askham Bryan

Am I right in thinking that this is the case which, a few years ago, the York Press was going to "solve" by releasing "startling new evidence" (possibly in connection with the publication of a book on the matter) but subsequently had to withdraw in the light of "legal advice"?

As I recall, neither book nor article ever saw the light of day ... presumably for "legal reasons".
