Face Value

Too Late For A Wanted Poster, Mister Turpin

Police have released an e-fit of English highwayman Dick Turpin - 270 years after he was hanged. They used newspaper clippings from the London Gazette between 1735-1737 and technology to create the first realistic picture of him.

FOOTNOTE: Thief of time.

Are they sure that they got the right guy? ;-)

Now that's what I call stand and deliver!

Suldog said...

Fun, but seems a serious waste of police time :-)

Mojo said...

I'm betting he doesn't look a thing like that picture.

Not anymore at least.

Just wondering... since they clearly "stuck a fork in the guy" would you call that a Turpin-tine?

Okay, I'll stop.

Did they issue a reward notice as well?
