Russian Edna's Last Customer - High Hazels Park Tinsley Sheffield March 1954

I've just posted an article on the death of Melanie Birch aka Russian Edna who was murdered in High Hazels park Tinsley Sheffield in March 1954

Yorkshire Post and Leeds Mercury dated Wednesday 24th March 1954

The death and the ensuing court case had a couple of interesting aspects and I must admit that I was surprised at the verdict given by the jury.

The other point of note is that Russian Edna is buried as Melanie Birch in Sheffield's Burngreave Cemetery. Buried in the same section of the Cemetery, is another Sheffield "character", a certain Billy Foulke.
