It's par for the course that they should go blanket on this (remember Soham?), and to an extent I found it interesting while things were still happening.



I wonder what all their other correspondants around the world do while this kind of thing is happening, twiddle their thumbs?



They keep saying how unprecedented this all is, but there have been plenty of serial killers over the years who have killed a lot more people.



I think they're already getting to the stage where they have looked at almost every possible angle to this and they're going to have to scale back the coverage unless something else happens in the case.



I will say one thing for it though, at least it's stopped all the Russian spy stuff.

I just hope that there are no more victims.



I agree about the Russian Spy.

Yesterday was the first day they havent mentioned Polonium.One minute they cant stop mentioning it, the next day its not even worth a mention.If something big happens elsewhere today then you wont hear Ipswich mentioned again as they swarm all over the new story

So they've nicked somebody now. I don't think he did it personally, he's probably just the local nutter looking for some attention, hence the ridiculously self-incriminating interview for the tabloids. Says he doesn't have an alibi for the killings when nobody knows when they even happened.

I couldnt agree more. I would be surprised if it is him. The whole thing has a whiff of the nutter who confessed to the killing of Jon Benet!

He does seem a bit of an oddball to be honest. His MySpace page (which is rather easy to find) contains some bizarre photos of him, including one where he's holding a can of custard. Even if he didn't commit the murders though, one would hope that he'd lend some clues to the investigation.
