Do you like crime mysteries? I think that the police already know the answer to this one...
In the early hours of yesterday (Wednesday 28 October 2015) a lorry drove into the front garden of this £300,000 GBP ($460,000 USD) four-bedroom bungalow in Cheltenham--destroying the garden walls in the process--and then repeatedly reversed into the front of the property until the entire frontage collapsed (no-one has ever lived in the house, and no-one appears to have been hurt).
Later, a burnt-out lorry was discovered in a field in Withybridge Lane, about a mile away; police believe it to be the same lorry used to destroy the house.
There is a really obvious question here: why?
Land Registry records show that the house has belonged to Mr. Johnny Connors since 2004. The Metro reported that his solicitors said that Mr Connors had recently sold the house, plus that contracts had recently been exchanged.
In 2012 John Connors, together with 4 members of his family, were found guilty of forced labour & jailed for 4 years. In 2014 he was ordered, under the Proceeds of Crime legislation, to pay just over £300,000 (curious how that is exactly the value of the house).
So, who do you think was driving the lorry?
