    It was a crime that shocked all of Britain in 1967 and launched one of its biggest manhunts: 12-year-old Brighton schoolboy Keith Lyon, strolling through a wood called Happy Valley on his way to buy a geometry set, was stabbed to death by unknown assailants presumed to have been a gang of thuggish teenagers.

    Now, investigators suspect a man in his 50s who grew up in Brighton but emigrated to Canada just days after Lyon's death has lived with a terrible secret about the killing for nearly 40 years.

    Bless him - lets hope justice is done after all this time.

    I read that they suspect one of the main motives for the attack was that the victim was wearing a public school blazer - pathetic and so so sad!
