Sex, secrets and murder

IT IS A mystery which has puzzled police and amateur sleuths for more than a century. A murder most foul that one of the country’s most celebrated detectives described it as so brutal it might have been “committed by a maniac or a foreigner.”

The unsolved case of Jean Milne, a woman of independent means who was stabbed repeatedly with a carving fork and bludgeoned to death with a poker, was one of the most infamous murder cases in Scotland at the turn of the 20th century.

The victim, Miss Milne, was a respectable church-going, 69-year-old spinster with a secret double life. She was known to have had dalliances with a number of possible lovers in a London Hotel and on frequent trips to the continent.
