Lost at Sea

by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Originally published by on 06/03/2017

He overheard his young wife and her lover planning his demise - and what they’d do with his money.

He changed his will and bequeathed everything to Douglas L. Bradshaw. He left a note instructing his executor: “If I should die in mysterious circumstances have the police investigate my wife and her lover.'

Then he took his wife on a cruise. Two weeks into the holiday he disappeared during the night, believed to have fallen overboard and drowned. Despite a search his body was never recovered.

Douglas L. Bradshaw was at the inquest. The plastic surgery scars were healing nicely.
