- - IN THE EARLY hours of 24 January 1941, Captain the Hon. Josslyn Victor Hay, 22nd Earl of Erroll, hereditary High Constable of Scotland and Kenya's Assistant Military Secretary, was shot in the head.His
body was shoved into the footwell of his
hired Buick, which was run off the road.The murder might have passed unnoticed: an unremarkable detail in a corner of the British Empire distracted by the Second World War.
But a sensational trial, in which complex social comings and goings titillated the watching audience with tales of love affairs and wild parties, and a 'Not Guilty' verdict meant that Lord Erroll's memory would not discreetly fade.
Extraordinarily, the murder has never been reinvestigated, and Erroll's killer has never been found, the coroner's last word on the subject being that it was 'Murder By Persons Unknown'.Coastweek
