The second murdered woman is a Mrs Morgan, a local whom Stephen had previously met, albeit briefly, on two occasion. DI Manciple questions him aggressively and Stephen appears confused. Stephen is clearly not a happy man and many of the psychological issues he has to deal with relate to being abandoned by his mother when he was just a young lad. His father never really recovered from her departure either. The situation leads to a major row with Lyn who asks him if he killed the women, but he admits he doesn't really know. Unbeknown to Stephen, Lyn has started a relationship with Nick and she reveals that although married for four years, the marriage was never consummated. Written by garykmcd
