    Sure does look strange, saw it before but lost where the location was.

    It’s just a signpost, it has the planets at various points along the walk
    ETA it doesn’t look like the solar walk goes through the bit selected on google maps- but I’m struggling to see what I’m looking at with grid reference.

    What's betting someone not relevant to the Claudia case has been arrested and wants to strike a deal over something that he knows about the case??

    I thought that alley man had been identified as RC who regularly checked down the alley at properties

    "I cannot fully accept anything as to the identity of a suggested person, i.e. the man near the alleyway behind Claudia's home, unless we have conclusive evidence to back the information up," said Det Supt Malyn.

    Claudia Lawrence inquiry: Man near alley 'still key'

    That's from 2019, RC died in 2009 I believe so not identified as him as far as police are concerned.

    I agree with the jilted lover or admirer theory.

    My current line of thinking is leaning towards one of the limping bar men from the Nags. They would know Claudia from serving her regularly and could have quite easily developed an obsession with her. The alleyman on CCTV, to me, appears to have a limp. He also appears to have a rucksack which someone may have if they’ve been at work. These barmen work in a pub literally a few doors down. It appears their landlord and boss even had a key to Claudia’s house.

    There’s certainly a lot of coincidences here…
    Does anyone else have these 2 or just 1 of them as suspects?

    I agree. with you vixey....I thought the. polices most recent statement was that they believe that whatever happened kicked off very shortly after the phone call to her mother...I dont know if they meant. violence or just that she left her house of her own free will with or to go to someone.

    again, as ive said before, if id been suzy, my first instinct would have been to go and knock on Claudias door....suzy knew. the area and wouldn't have been afraid to just walk to Claudius house and try to make contact when she didn't turn up

    ok I might have to have a look this evening now, I’m intrigued.
    Doubt it’s relevant to the CL case though :)

    I'm not sure about the 19th. The Galloway investigation certainly fixated on this, and specifically the idea that she was abducted when walking to work. The Mallyn team much less so - think their focus and communication was much more open on this question.

    It is true though that if Alleyman were scouting at 0500 on 19/3 , it's more consistent with CL still being there and something being about to happen, rather than already having happened. But it's not fully clear either way.

    I’ve always been of the opinion she was abducted the morning of the 19th.

    I think alley man went there the night before to check she was actually sleeping there that night and not somewhere else, was probably looking to see if lights were on. Once he had confirmation she was there he returned the following morning, again checked she hadn’t already left. Then returned to his car parked somewhere near the front of the house then lay in wait for her to leave for work.

    I think alley man was known to her (either a lover or admirer) and has offered her a lift to work which she has reluctantly accepted.

    I also believe there is only 1 perp involved. If it was 4 or 5 I genuinely think one of them would have slipped up by now or DNA from one of them would have been found somewhere.

    This is exactly what I think happened as you described. She was probably trying to avoid him because he was probably not too happy with her plans for Cyprus .
    As you say she got in his car reluctantly …

    Yeah if it was someone she knew, even not that well, then if she was offered a lift to work over a long 45 minute walk she would surely have taken it. After that, something happened.

    This is possible but how do you know he got out of a car.
    Unless there is factual evidence that you can reference, the car is an assumption IMO

    This can probably be determined by a search on 192.com. Unfortunately I don't have any credits left to check this detail otherwise I would help.
