    Got back from York yesterday. Might revisit again next christmas as I’ve been twice in the summer and would be nice to see what it’s like at Xmas time. Anyway, saw lots of sites connected to CL, where suspects / POI live(d) etc. One thing that struck me was they definitely are all local, all within a very close proximity of the nags and her house. SC lived a fair way from the nags she must have always had to get a taxi. There were fresh tulips in the window of Claudia house which made me feel sad, I guess her mum goes in and puts them there. I went in a few pubs connected to various people as well, the one where snelling drank and the vudu lounge where people have been linked to knowing Claudia. I thought all the pubs were nice. To be honest, York is such a nice area there aren’t really any ‘bad’ places !

    I didn’t speak to anyone about Claudia. I’m a regular person not a private investigator I wouldn’t have the confidence to do so. I did wonder if I’d see anyone in the pubs from the investigation but I didn’t and I was going in the day as I’m on annual leave from work so I suspect people are at work. I didn’t drive the route from her house to the university but the time before I was up in York I did then yes

    You know something if you are a regular on here ( WS) you should have confidence speaking about Claudia !
    We probably know a lot more on Claudia’s investigation than most policemen and journalists !
    They have to deal with other cases for a start !
    Senior detectives have retired!

    I think you made a wise decision not to ask questions about Claudia on your walkabouts.
    In my opinion the people involved in this are as dangerous today as they were in 2009.

    Its a good idea to visit where she lived and socialized - puts everything into perspective

    I don’t lack confidence in my knowledge of the case in fact I feel I have as good a grasp of it as anyone it’s more on a social level, I just feel it would be inappropriate and obtrusive

    They have waited 12 years, I doubt that person will speak now. I understand the change in loyalties/partners and people moving out of the area feeling less pressure, but how long do you wait?

    Yes I had a coke in the walnut tree, that was probably the least nice out of all I visited. I believe Claudia’s father also drank in there before his passing

    Thanks for your info. Least nice in what way, as in unfriendly or something else?

    I'm surprised Claudia's dad spent time there, it's so close to Claudia's house and the Nags head, only a 5 minute walk according to Google. Not sure I could put myself among people likely responsible :( I'm not judging, I just don't think I could handle it

    Just in terms of decor it seemed a bit more run down. For what it’s worth I saw the garage where her car was being repaired all those years ago and also went into rillington where she used to horse ride as a child

    Honest Question guys:
    If you caused the death of Claudia ( or anyone else for that matter ) without meaning to, would you own up and possibly ruin your life and that of your immediate family?
