There was a time before Fred West that the most gruesome, bone-chilling address in Britain was 10 Rillington Place. This squalid Notting Hill house in west London was the scene of some of the most infamous crimes of the century as it was the home of John Reginald Christie, a serial killer long before the phrase had been coined. This is an account of the events leading up to the execution of Timothy Evans, the man found guilty of murdering his baby daughter Geraldine in November 1949. This 1965 report of the second inquiry into the Timothy Evans/John Christie murder case re-examines the facts of the case and comes to the conclusion that it is probable that Evans killed his wife but not his daughter. He had been found guilty only of the death of his daughter and as a result of the inquiry he was granted a free pardon, but both he and Christie had been executed in 1950.
