FACTFILE

 

Saturday 13th November 1976, 11-year-old Paul Kingsley had an argument with his mother, then set off to Scout's.  His body was discovered at 4:20pm.

 

According to the pathologist, this was not the first time Paul Kingsley had engaged in homosexual acts as a passive partner - he had indulged frequently in the past.

On this occasion, due to blood patterns, and the way bruising is observed after death, it was established that he must have been a willing partner in anal sex, he was then strangled afterwards, and from the front.


Sinclair claimed He strangled Kingsley by mistake after having had sex with him.
Sinclair was found guilty based on forensic evidence. In Sinclair's home a pair of trousers were found that were made out of identical fibres to some found on the clothes of Kingsley. However, this was not enough evidence to prosecute him with. Then 4 red fibres were found on Paul's clothes, and 5 of the same fibres were also found on the trousers of Sinclair. A towel was found in Sinclair's home which matched all nine red fibres. This was then considered enough evidence.
He was found not guilty of murder, and received 7 years imprisonment for manslaughter
