Happy to acknowledge that a Yorks copper knows more about how Eley was apprehended than I. I think Gary Kenworthy told me theyÂ´d knocked on his door very early one morning and that 43 affadavits had been sworn against him.
Another investigating Yorks Police officer told me that he had sold his house and vehicles in 48 hours and done a bunk.
Was he wrong too?
It is very contentious for you to bring Andrew Butterworth into your posts regarding Brian Eley. You worded your post in a way that questions Andrews knowledge of what Eley was up to when he sold up , thats even assuming Andrew bought the business and house which is actually nothing to do with anyone except the Police and Brian Eley.
At no time in the last 19 years has Andrew Butterworths name ever been mentioned in connection with Eley and his alleged offences. Its really not for you to to make any reference to him.
Why not? Yorkshire chess suppliers are thin on the ground, pal. ItÂ´s a very small world. I never said Butterworth had done anything wrong.
The way YOUÂ´ve worded your (curiously) strident reply suggests that you know more about how and to whom the vehicles, house and business were sold ( if the latter were sold ) than you choose to divulge on this forum.
That, of course, being your prerogative.
But the manner of these rapid sales could quite possibly throw light upon how Eley fled. I therefore cannot concur that itÂ´s only for him and the Police to know.
Brian Eley deserves to be put before a court to be tried and either acquited or convicted and in that respect I have done my bit by passing on snippets of information to Interpol via crime stoppers... there wil be those in the country who dont want him found because of the massive adverse publicity a subsequent court case will attract follwoing on from some others.
I salute your efforts to bring him to justice.
The last words of that paragraph are an eye-opener. And they shock me.
Its very regretable that Andrew Butterworth of Chess Direct Limited has been brought into the ongoing story.
Well, I say again; anyone who can throw light on any aspect of the sales, is, to my mind, someone who ought to be questioned as it might supply clues about EleyÂ´s intent.
And you still have not said if Butterworth bought EleyÂ´s business.
