OAP serial killer in Exeter

Recommended Posts

Police are advising people to check on elderly relatives after 3 men, one aged 80 and two aged 84, have been found dead in Exeter.

Police are linking their deaths despite them being found separately.

This is unusual.

A man has been arrested in connection. No further info.

You shouldn't need to be asked to check on your elderly relatives.

I doubt few check daily which is what the police are suggesting they now do.

Most people tend to have weekly contact IME; whether a phone call or a visit.

It's odd; my guess would be a junkie desperate for a fix knocking on doors and then pushing in if the occupiers are elderly and frail.

Don't answer the door. If you live in Southampton, you'd already know that now.

We know some OAP people that still have a telephone at the front door, in case someone walking by needs to use the telephone. I tell them, people have mobile phones these days. It hasn't been used in 20 years.

Disclaimer: I haven't read the article and never watch the news so all I know is from TMT's précis.

It seems a bit odd. All 3 victims were men but the demographics show that women aged 80+ outnumber men aged 80+. I doubt it was a junkie robbery otherwise why would they be killed? Why are the police using this to push for checking on elderly relatives everyday? If they are being killed surely the bodies can wait until the weekend. Plus it is moot as they've caught the perpetrator.

On a different note, I was expecting this to be about a serial killer who was an OAP.

TBH, checking is only any good as the last check, it won't stop them being murdered or dying. You'll just find out that they're dead.

As I answer when people ask me how my parents are "They were alive when I phoned yesterday"

Only arrested Pin. Not charged with anything yet.

How come they have released his details. They normally try and hide them as long as possible and never reveal until charged. 

Or is it different rules applied to different people?  o.O

He looks a bit pale. Needs more sunshine and vit D3 perhaps?
