'Colin Ross neatly dressed'

Shows portrait of Colin Ross, the man accused of murdering Alma Tirtschke, and details how he looked on the day of the inquest. Ross was convicted of the muder even though the evidence and testimony presented in court would be dismissed today. This case was unique as it was reopened in 2008 and Ross was given a posthumous pardon as a result of evidence being re-examined using modern techniques.
