Re the death of Elsie Frost

Coroner – Inquest. The 1966 coroner's inquisition into the death of a 14-year-old girl, finding that S had murdered her, would be quashed and a fresh inquest ordered, as it was necessary and desirable in the interests of justice. The Divisional Court found that fresh evidence might reasonably lead to the conclusion that the substantial truth about how the deceased had met her death had not been revealed and the public interest had not been significantly vitiated by the lapse of 53 years.
