planned the murder When the Lord Lucan's wife Veronica, she could have had no idea of the huge amount of fall-out. At that time, in 1974 Lucan probably thought that was the only loser in the whole affair, is estranged wife Veronica, whose body he wanted to end up dumped in the canal.
But as it turned out, the events of that night was a fairly disastrous impact on many people. For a start, Lucan killed the wrong woman: it was a child & # 39; s nanny, Sandra Rivett 29-year-old who was beaten to death by mistake.
This blunder came to cast such a shadow over the extraordinary life of Lucan & # 39; s family and friends. For the poor wife Veronica, she now has three children and moved away. His son, George knew that if I wanted the title and became the eighth Earl of Lucan. But the truth is that Lord Lucan turned to address a standing joke, and George is unlikely to ever be used. Can you imagine what would happen if George was going down to book a restaurant table as Lord Lucan? It would be even worse if he were pulling the police.
But in addition to the family, Lucan & # 39; s murder was the direct cause of the suicide, a friend of Dominic Elwes. This sparked one of the longest libel actions in British history. And incredibly, it's also led to the arrest of Britain & # 39; and one-time Postmaster General. This last arrest, which is so completely bizarre that it is almost laughable.
in the autumn of 1974 a Labour MP, John Stonehouse, has been drowned in the sea off Miami. It was to Stonehouse & # 39; It s unfortunate that a few weeks later, Lucan had murdered Sandra Rivett. The whole world is in the lookout for a British aristocrat term. Not long after, Australia, teller spots fairly shy in English. The Englishman looks rich and very nervous; He wants to make up the large sum of money.
called the police immediately. A few minutes later, the British high in detention – only investigators to discover that the & # 39; ve caught with Lord Lucan, but the unfortunate British MP John Stonehouse, who & # 39; d faked his own death to set up home in Australia with his secretary. It is very irritating to the Stone House: he was arrested and dragged back to jail in Britain only because it bore a passing resemblance to Lord Lucan.
