Christie married 22-year-old Ethel Simpson from Sheffield, on 10 May 1920. It was a dysfunctional union, as Christie was impotent with her and frequented prostitutes. Friends and neighbors gossiped that she stayed with him out of fear. They separated after four years, when Christie moved to London and Ethel lived with relatives.You should have seen Harrow's mean cop. (4) opinions -- Add your opinion
Not to mention his his implicating Timothy John Evans in the murder of Evans' wife and daughter at 10 Rillington Place, when in fact Christie killed them.Post a Comment

It effectively ended the death penalty in the UK as Evans was hanged for the crime to which Christie later confessed.
