Actually, a multitude thereof, and all in the same article.
Mulcahy, pictured, was only trialed in 2000 when Duffy confessed he had been his accomplice.
FFS, it’s not enough that “trialed” is now being used as a replacement for “tested”; now these illiterate assholes are using it instead of “tried” (in the judicial sense)?
It doesn’t end there:
From there, the police started to look for a man with a A blood type…
You mean “the” A blood type, of course.

“The other thing, and we’ve never made this public, is that a tourniquet was used”
Ahem. A tourniquet is a stopgap medical device to cut off massive bleeding in a wounded limb; a garotte is looped around the neck and tightened by turning a stick or piece of metal as a means of strangulation.
And their description of the murder weapon:
They thought that [the piece of wood] been used as an accelerator to burn the body. It wasn’t. It was used act fallen out of the knot that had been used to strangle Maartje.
Right now, I am not allowed to visit Britishland, which is probably A Good Thing. There would be murders at the Daily Mail offices, perhaps even by garotte (which would be fitting).
Gah. Where’s the Sipsmith?
