There's been a murrrderrr...!!!!

I recently discovered, thanks to a Freedom of Information request by the BBC, that the murder of my 3 x great grandmother Janet Rogers, nee Henderson, at her brother's farm in 1866 is in fact the UK's longest unsolved murder case by the police. It was all news to me, despite having spent the last eight years researching it! Janet was murdered at Mount Stewart farm by the Perthshire village of Forgandenny - the murder would later drive her brother, the farm owner, completely insane. The story was featured a couple of years ago on the Radio Scotland "Digging Up Your Roots" series.

The BBC has now done an update on the original story, with an interview featuring yours truly! The story has gone online today at the BBC News Magazine pages at www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-10885914.

Enjoy...!
