I’m really sorry, but the account of Bessie’s murder given here is so factually wrong in so many places, even by the standards of the inadequate accounts given in local histories. Two brief instances. 1 – Mary Sheppard, Bess’ mother, came no further than the toll bar on the A60. That’s the Larch Farm garage where the toll bar used to be. She did not pass the murder site. She did not pass Rotherham, the supposed killer. He went to the Hutt pub and afterwards on to Nottingham. He did not go back toward Mansfield. I’ve written a book on the subject. I’ve researched it in depth. Your account just adds to the simplistic rubbish published about the crime.
