Inquest and Autopsy Reports for Hilda Murrell

Following the delayed inquest into Hilda Murrell’s murder (held on 4 December 1984), the Coroner refused to release a copy of Dr Peter Acland’s autopsy report to Robert Green as next of kin.  Dr Acland wrote a letter to the Times  on 10 January 1985 offering to review his report with another pathologist chosen by the family. Professor Bernard Knight was asked and he submitted his findings on 28 March 1985.  Dr Acland and Detective Chief Superintendent Cole read the only statements allowed at the Inquest
