Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

I'm no expert but don't even silence guns make a sound, the gate hatch was heard?No, he said he heard Jill scream but did not hear a gun shot. As no-one else heard a gun shot that morning it would appear a silencer was used on the weapon.
The one thing about Jill's murder that has always bothered me is how the killer went about his business seemingly unseen that morning, both before and after the killing. There are the odd reports about someone possibly being seen 2 or 3 hours before hanging around opposite Jill's house, and someone afterwards in a black coat running off up the road, and some sweaty bloke being seen at a bus stop - not really much to go on, is it?
However, if you lived where RH did right next door to Jill, you would have the perfect opportunity. I believe it's changed now, but back in 1999 there was only a 3 foot wall between the 2 gardens. So if you stood by your front door, as soon as Jill came into her garden and walked towards her door, you could jump over the wall, do the deed, then jump back over the wall and into your house. All that would probably take less than a minute.
However, while it would explain how the killer managed to get away so quickly and unseen, i don't really believe RH had anything to do with it. For example, what would his motive be?
